Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Viana do Castelo - Casa Yasmin
Large 3 double bedroom and single bed house with private pool and mountain view
Casa Yasmin is a gorgeous family house built a century ago at the top of a hill village halfway up Serra de Arga, the coastal range in the far north of Portugal. The property is in a group of half a dozen houses right at the end of a quiet and attractive village.
The house and garden have recently been lovingly restored and refurbished to a high standard. All furniture, kitchen and bathroom fittings are new. Delightful pieces of hand carved furniture and fittings have been created by an English craftsman using local timbers both inside the property and out in the garden.
There is a large swimming pool and both the house and pool enjoy spectacular views across the valley to the rugged mountainside opposite.
The house sleeps 7 comfortably. There are three double bedrooms in the main house sleeping up to 6 persons and one single bedroom for one person.
Some of the bedrooms open out onto the gardens, which are mostly lawns and there are also courtyards, balconies, a rooftop patio and a separate barbecue area. There are two bathrooms and a huge lounge/dining room which is 40 square metres!
The property is superbly located for exploring the many local areas of outstanding beauty. Just 15 kilometres to the Costa Verde, a 100 kilometre stretch of coastline with beaches every few minutes. The Spanish border is just 25 kilometres away. Access is great for the breathtaking Peneda-Geres National park which has some amazing overnight camp-sites, very reasonably priced. Full camping equipment is available at the property which includes two tents sleeping up to 6 persons if required.
Both Nogueira and Vilar de Murteda (the house is between the two) are attractive, scattered hillside places of a few hundred people, in a heavily wooded zone (pine and eucalyptus) on the way up the Serra d'Arga (784m). There are a couple of small grocery/hardware shops, various cafés (good for fresh bread) but no restaurants. We provide you with a personalised guide to local restaurants, shops, beaches, sports, culture and sightseeing etc.
