About the property

Quinta de Gozende affords stunning views over the Serra D’Arga and is situated on the outskirts of the quiet village of Vinhas but is only 4km from the bustling market town of Paredes de Coura. There is a small café/restaurant and a Roman Catholic church in the village. The house is surrounded by 6 acres of garden with mature trees, vines and has its own private swimming pool. The kitchen is fully equipped including a washing machine, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher and oven. In the main house there are three bedrooms, one double with en-suite bathroom, a second double and one twin with a shared shower room. The remaining accommodation is in the barn with one double bedroom and one bunk room sleeping 4 and a shower room. The sitting room is large with an open fireplace and extends out onto the veranda, where most meals are eaten in the summer months. The maids will come once during the week to clean the house. There is also a gardener and pool specialist who come once a week.

Ideal for a family getaway holiday or for those that love walking. The house is near the Serra de Peneda National Park. Beaches can be reached within 40 minutes and there are plenty of towns to explore. Canoeing down the Rivers Lima, Coura and Minho are also great fun. There are many picturesque towns and villages to visit with markets and plenty of restaurants. Bicycles can be hired in Caminha.

About Anna

We are an English family with close family ties to Portugal. We have three teenage children who all love coming to Portugal during their holidays.

Anna purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Anna chose Municipality of Paredes de Coura

We bought Quinta de Gozende in 2005 so that we could spend our holidays near our family and one day hope to retire here. The house and garden has been sympathetically restored and are perfect for families. The pool is safe and perfectly situated with total protection.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Our house is situated on a hill with no neighbours above us. We are well protected from all other properties. Quinta de Gozende is extremely private and peaceful.

Amazing Property in Rural Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this property. We stayed here mid September and we simply loved it. The house is charming, the gardens are well kept, the kitchen is well equipped, and the swimming pool is a delight! It is exactly what we were dreaming of - a quiet property in rural Portugal with all the amenities.

The location is ideal if you want to do some day trips as well.

- 1.5 hours drive to Porto

- 45 min drive to Moledo Beach (gorgeous sunset on the Atlantic Ocean)

- 30 min to Tui (Spain)

- 2 hours drive to Santiago de Compostela (Spain)

Simply stunning

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family (from 9 to 70) have just had the most wonderful stay in this beautiful and very homely quinta tucked away in a stunning part of Northern Portugal. As a place to unwind and just "be" it would be very hard to beat. The view from the terrace; gazing at the stars; listening to the birdsong and chatter of the insects; cooling off in the pool. Superbly located for exploring the area, both coast, country and into Spain. We couldn't have wanted for anything and Anna was very helpful in giving us advice when needed.

None of us wanted to leave and we would all give you 6 stars if we could!

We would love to return one day.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

It's our second time here and we had a fabulous time exploring a little more. The house is perfect, everything you could wish for. Can't beat the views from the outside terrace, the bird song or relaxing by the pool.

Owner's Response: Hi Sophie, thank you for your kind words. We are in the house now and I have to agree. The view from the veranda is perfect. Maybe see you here again some time. Anna

Sublime, just amazingly sublime

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place, not a fussy place. A place that would give Hemingway pause to think about a current project. Or, a place that would allow two ordinary people to stop and just enjoy the beauty, quiet and surrounding country side. A most manageable home without having to climb a bunch of stairs. Plenty of outdoor spaces to have a drink, a snack or just read a book. A genuinely efficient kitchen with more than enough tools to cook whatever you want. Fresh figs, grapes, kiwi, apples, walnuts and chestnuts plus lots of fresh herbs. Beds are comfortable but the one in the master suite is very, very low. Very nice baths with great water pressure. The pool was a bit cool but not unexpctedly for this time of year. It took only 30 minutes or less to get to Caminha, Ponte de Lima, Valenca, Tui (Spain) and 10 minutes to Coura. We wiil return but stay longer next time!

Amazing cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a brilliant couple of weeks here. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need. There was even a basket of essentials for when we arrived. Clean and very comfortable. We loved sitting out on the verandah in the evenings, the pool was warm and much bigger than it looks in the pictures. Sandra came over a couple of times and was so charming and helpful. Emailing Anna has been easy and seemed always on hand if we needed any questions answered.

Basically, we'd love to go back!

Car: necessary

Quinta de Gozende is situated in the Minho in a very small village, 7km from the Spanish border directly up the A3 motorway. It is 75 minutes drive from Porto airport. The motorway is well signposted from the airport and the house is less that 10 min from Jct 13.

Other than a rural café/restaurant there is nothing in the village of Vinhas but Paredes de Coura is only 4km away in which there are a couple of supermarkets and many local shops, restaurants and cafés.
