LUXURY MANOR HOUSE, SELF CATERING FULLY EQUIPPED VACATION RENTAL

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Viana do Castelo - Bento Novo Manorhouse

Self catering manor house, ideal for family vacations, near Atlantic Beaches

Quinta do Bento Novo is located in the North of Portugal, near the Atlantic Coast. The house has a capacity of 14+ people, with 7 double rooms, several spacious living rooms, a large kitchen that is fully equipped and can easily accommodate 14 people. The centennial house has been recently remodelled, so you will be able to enjoy the beautiful characteristic architecture and also feel the comfort of modern houses (central heating, spacious bedrooms, all with private bathroom, modern equipments). You will also enjoy the 4000 square meters of lands and beautiful gardens: you will be amazed by the enormous variety of plants, trees and flowers of the gardens, and take pleasure of the surrounding mountains and the stream that flows at the end of the property. The house is located in the small village of Perre, only 7 km away from Viana do Castelo, one of the most beautiful cities of Portugal, with a lot of history and culture to offer. The high quality Atlantic Beaches are only 8 km away.

The Region: Alto Minho has an enormous array of choices to give: beaches (Blue and Golden Flags), golf, tennis, swimming pools, spas, an excellent gastronomy, a very animated ambiance, fishing and hunting, water sports, trekking, historic villages, monuments, gardens, tourist circuits and a very contagious folk culture.

Come to discover the Province of the Minho, land of wine and folklore. And also, of castles, monasteries and churches that speaks of history, of villages full of monuments. Come to find Viana Castelo and the Lima River. Come to live the joy of the colourful popular parties.

The Farm: Originally built in 1892, Bento Novo was recently renovated to more comfortably accommodate our guests, but the beautiful characteristics of its buildings have been preserved. The contrast of schist and granite that can be found throughout the property emphasizes the harmony that exists between what nature has provided and man has embellished.

Bento Novo’s relaxing quiet atmosphere almost makes you forget how close you are to all the action that is happening in the surrounding area. So if you are looking for a relaxing get away or want to come and discover the Alto-Minho region’s rich natural and historical heritage and experience its sea side attractions, we hope you will make us a part of your unforgettable vacation.

The 18th-century property had fallen into considerable disrepair since the days the ancient house started needing restoration. We considered selling it, but we couldn’t bear to give up a place that was part of our childhood.

Fortunately, there was another option. With “rural tourism” popular in Portugal at the time, we decided to renovate the house and turn it into an inn for our guests. Today, Quinta do Bento Novo, http://www.quintabentonovo.pt, as the historic property is known, has been restored to its former glory. The seven-bedroom inn welcomes guests from all over the world and its elegant, surrounding gardens are the pride of Paulo’s hometown.

Paulo Barros purchased this villa in 1734

I inherited this manor house in the Portuguese countryside. It belongs to my family since XVIII century.

Extraordinary gardens, large house perfect for big families or groups, picturesque village, close to the beach, great gastronomy.
