LOVELY LUXURY VILLA WITH PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL, GARDENS AND ORCHARD.

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Vila Nova de Cerveira - Villa Meã

Peaceful Location near Minho River, Golf and Coast/beaches, 5 Mins to Spain.

The Villa is in the most Northern part of Portugal, Minho, which is hilly and beautifully green. A place to get away from stressful life, to relax and regain energy. Luxury and cosy interiors with central heating and spacious exterior areas with high solar exposure make the villa a perfect place for holidays all year round. The peaceful romantic gardens have many secret corners and in the orchard you can find organic fruit: apples, lemons, pears, cherries, orange, nuts etc. The pool garden relaxation area is secure and private with furniture, a parasol and BBQ. The patio runs the length of the building and the parking area is large enough for 4 cars and is secure behind high steel gates (remote controlled). The local towns such as Vila Nova de Cerveira, Valença (fortified town), Caminha and Ponte de Lima are picturesque and interesting. Just a few minutes you can go from the river to coast, green countryside to historical towns, golf to surfing and to enjoy with nice food and wine.

A drive into Spain for shopping and sighseeing and 'tapas' is very easy from the new bridge at Vila Nova de Cerveira. Porto, Vigo and Viana do Castelo offers some astonishing shopping malls with all the international brands you could hope for under one roof. Of course Porto (1 hour away) is the second capital of Portugal that is famous for its wines, culture and historic sites. Nightlife is very good at beach places such as Caminha and Baiona, during summer. During the year Vigo (30 min away) as a vibrant nightlife.

Getting to Vila Mea: flying to Porto is the easiest way to get to Vila Nova de Cerveira. It will be necessary to have a car. We will provide detailed directions from Porto airport to the doorstep of the Villa. It takes about an hour to drive along an almost empty motorway with some spectacular views.

BA, TAP, Easyjet & Ryanair fly to Porto airport. Ryanair also fly to Santiago de Compostela in Spain which is the same distance from Vila Nova de Cerveira (on motorway). Bilbao and Santander ferry ports are 7hrs drive to the North.

Villa Mea is a huge house in a rural location in Vila Nova de Cerveira. The accommodation is immaculate and looks out onto the pool by floor-to-ceiling windows. Surronding the pool there is a beautiful garden aera with barbecue that are hidden from outsiders by high walls. The villa accommodates two families with ease. One PlayStation, games, DVDs will keep the children happy when they are not splashing in the pool, running in the gardens or exploring the orchard. This is a green and hilly region of the yet-unspoilt Portugal. It is quiet but it has plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes nearby. Sightseeing walks from the house in the green countryside and river are available from the property.

Excellent villa, thoroughly recommended.

  • Review Submitted: 07-Dec-2013

I stayed here for an extended period during autumn 2013. I cannot praise the villa too highly. There are 4 large bedrooms all with double beds and plenty of wardrobes and drawers, 1 also has a cot. There are 2 full bathrooms (1 with Jacuzzi) plus one by the pool. There is a very large lounge with 2 walls which are completely glass. This gives a very bright room a wonderful outlook to the pool and gardens. There is a formal dining room which also has a lounge area with 2 leather settees. The main entrance is very impressive with fine furnishings. Actually the whole house is filled with high quality furnishings which would grace any home. There are 2 kitchens 1 of which is more like a large utility room, the Aga type cooker is not in use. It has however an additional dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier and ironing facilities etc. The main kitchen is modern, bright and well fitted out with most things including a dishwasher. There are tables and chairs in all the downstairs rooms in addition to the formal dining room. Outside, via the electric gates, is parking for innumerable cars. The gardens are nice and completely secure. There is lots of space, covered walkways, benches, outside dining table and, of course, poolside loungers. The pool is large, clean and well maintained, as is the garden itself. There is a double garage which has a table tennis table in it. There is also a large covered barbeque area where the barbeque is built in with a chimney for all weather barbies. Vila Mea is a beautiful village with a mix of prestigious properties and some more original rural types. The small population is also a mix of professionals and people living by means of subsistence farming. All make you feel very welcome and are incredibly friendly. Few speak English so it is wise to have some stock phrases prepared unless you speak Portuguese, Spanish or, quite a few, speak French. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance that are good and reasonably priced. The Rio Minho 4* hotel is also within walking distance and has a cafe/bar and also an upmarket restaurant. The restaurant has a daily lunch special of 3 courses, coffee, a half bottle of wine for 8 euros (discount for children). There is a combined cafe/bar/shop in the village which is a delight. All the locals use it in the traditional Portuguese way of treating it as meeting place - I love the place. You are within easy driving of historical towns such as P D Lima, Valenca. I'm coming back.

Lovely family home in a peaceful setting

  • Review Submitted: 11-Nov-2012

In a very non touristic area of the MInho in Northern Portugal, this villa is clean comfortable and well equiped.
It was almost like staying in someone's home whilst they were away for a couple of weeks.
The things we usually have to buy like washing up liquid and washing powder were already in the house and we just had to replace what we used.
A couple of points - firstly this is not a tourist area, so we had a great deal of fun and challenges making ourselves understood as English is not widely spoken (this to us is part of the charm of going to an area like this so is not a negative!!!) we even had to resort to a bit of O level French with someone who could speak this and Portuguese and acting out or drawing what we were trying to buy.
Secondly, it would have been a good idea to have told us the opening times of the local supermarket, particularly as we arrived on a Sunday and wanted to get some provisions like milk, bread, beer etc (we should have realised that this is not like England for shops open all hours). However, we did have a lovely meal out in the local town the first evening so again this is not a negative point just a note.
The outside space was well maintained and very private. The pool was a little chilly for me, but my husband and one of our friends did use it on an almost daily basis. We were also blessed with good weather apart from one cloudy day and torrential rain as we headed back to the airport after out fortnights stay.
The local area is very beautiful with many lovely towns and villages to visit especially enjoyed Melgacao and the Saturday markets in Vila Nova de Cerveira, we did not eat out a great deal preferring to barbeque ourselves, but when we did the food was very good and the Vinho Verde plentiful and both of these things were very good value for money.
Not somewhere for those seeking nightlife, but for a pleasant relaxing week or two in a very unspoilt area, it is an ideal place.

Early Autumn in Vila Nova de Cerveira

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 05-Nov-2012
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2012
My three friends and I stayed in this delightful villa from 29th September to 6th
October this year.
It is a superb family villa set in a quiet area on the outskirts of Vila Nova de Cerveira. Elegant, well furnished and equipped it is an extremely comfortable house in which to spend an interesting holiday.
The surrounding countryside is green and attractive, the glorious River Minho is very near and the sea not much further away. Inland there are numerous interesting and historic towns to explore. Some have extensive Medieval quarters , Ancient Houses, Castles, Citadels etc. in which we were particularly interested. There are many good restaurants in the area , some at a very reasonable price but which were nevertheless, delicious.
We had hired a car so we were able to go further afield. As it is our second holiday in the region we already had some favourites places - Vila Nova itself and Ponte de Lima especially. But this time we also had enjoyable excursions over the bridge into the Galicia region of Spain.. There the picturesque port of Baiona provided good Spanish meals and intesting walks around the town, the coast and the Parador.
The weather was kind to us, sunny and with temperatures over 20 degrees C every day.So we spent most of our time outdoors, either on excursions or lying on the sunbeds around the pool in the garden.
Altogether it was an interesting and relaxing holiday. All the arrangements with Filipe Pereira and his family worked really smoothly and we would certainly go there again. I can recommend it highly.

Great villa

  • Review Submitted: 27-Dec-2011

The villa was really great, mainly for families - it has all, what you need and the price is very fair ! We liked most the table-tennis, the pool (of course), the grill, w-lan (it was sometimes down...), the whirlpool. You can find each day new things in the villa. So we played in the evening: Make a photo - and all other has to find the picture in the house... I can tell you - it was very hard...

What a lovely holiday we have had! The villa was everything we had hoped for! so many places to visit close by and we had a swim (or 2!) in the pool every day. Really good value for money. Thank you. Hopefully we may be able to come again one day.

The villa is a few minutes by car from Vila Nova de Cerveira which is a very nice village, internationally know by the bienal arts exposition, the historic centre and wonderful outdoor Saturday market. Valença (5 min) which is a historic market town with impressive medieval walls and Caminha with its cobbled streets, bars, cafes and restaurants is 20 min away. Viana do Castelo (30 min) and Ponte de Lima (15 min) are the largest local towns and both offer historical interest. Porto and Santiago de Compostela are 1 hour away by motorway. The beautiful Minho river, at walking distance from the property, is perfect for picnics and swimming. 20 minutes away by car you will find the coast which has miles of beaches with golden sand. Just by crossing the international bridge at Vila Nova de Cerveira (5 min) you will be in Spain with a whole different culture to explore. It is a quiet area but has plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.

Golf: One of the best 18 hole golf courses in North Portugal is about 15 min away in Ponte De Lima.
