A very pleasant spot with the swimming pool, beach and restaurant close at hand and the ferry to the town was ideal transport. Only thing missing was wifi.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      From the splendidly un-made road, leading to a gated entrance and 100 ft, stone driveway, (yes I paced it out), this Mill oozes old world charm by the earthenware, bucketful. There's loads of space (even for my family of 6), a garden at the back with orange, avocado and lemon trees, (we made a fair few jugs of homemade lemonade). There's even a hammock. A gate near the front door lets you get down to the river, where you can paddle below the weir or swim higher up, above the weir. It is rocky and a bit of a scramble, but I managed it (late fifties with dodgy knees). 20 minutes driving gets you to Viana do Castelo on the coast, or Ponte de Lima if you head inland (maybe nearer 30 mins). In fact it's a great base to explore a lot of the north of Portugal, from swimming in mountain pools near Soajo to rumbling around Porto. We went in early September and had great weather every day, good and warm but not too hot. There's a supermarket 10 mins walk away in Durraes, plus restaurants and a great little no-frills, pizza place nearby in Barroselas, if you can't be bothered to cook one evening. If you're after somewhere less touristy this really is a great place, whether you want to do the whole cultural thing or simply mooch about the house drinking the occasional bottle of Super boc.
