About the property

Villa in Souto, Terras de Bouro, Costa Verde, Portugal

Casa Lumi is a delightful villa furnished to a high standard to offer our clients the best comfort and elegance. It is a haven of tranquility and relaxation surrounded by a large garden with orange, lemon, olive and walnut trees with amazing views of the mountains and countryside. It is not unusual to see locals still working the rich fertile land with an ox-drawn cart in this rural and unspoilt region of North Portugal. The local church (opposite the villa) has traditional festivals throughout the year. A natural water fountain with fresh mountain water is just a short stroll away, wonderful scents of pine and eucalyptus fill the air along the way. Free wi-fi / internet in the villa with a Smart TV and book case with selection of books, childrens toys, board games and badminton set.

Wooden gazebo area with built in BBQ and sink, rattan garden furniture, table and chairs for outdoor dining.

Garden with orange, lemon, olive and walnut trees, please help yourselves to the fruit.

Great location, close to the Peneda Geres National Park for walking, tree climbing, horse-riding, watersports, waterfall and lagoon trips, plus many more outdoor activities 20kms distance from Casa Lumi.

Water Park at Fafe and Amarante and water Park at Guimaraes for smaller children.

Braga city for shopping, restaurants, cinema, cathedral, museum, culture, train station - 24kms distance from Casa Lumi

Porto - 76kms from Casa Lumi - take the train from Braga train station to visit the famous Port houses, such as Sandeman, Taylors, Offley and the wonderful Ponte dom Luis bridge with waterside restaurants and cafes.

About Diane & Adriano Rodrigues

Casa Lumi was built in 2002 and designed by ourselves, we installed the pool a few years later and keep adding new additions every year. We are a family of four, with two boys. Our dream was to build a house and enjoy this region of the North of Portugal that is still totally unspoilt by tourism. There is so much to see and do, either by visiting the cities or exploring the National Park with plenty of activities to keep everyone occupied. We hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we do.

Diane & Adriano Rodrigues purchased this villa in 2002

Why Diane & Adriano Rodrigues chose Souto

This region of North Portugal is still untouched by tourist prices, example of some prices: Less than one euro : white coffee, tea, soft drinks, bottle of beer or draught beer. Average bottle of wine in a restaurant around 6€, a set menu for lunch with wine and coffee 6€ per person. The euro definitely goes further in the North than in the Algarve.

What makes this villa unique

Newly built Summer terrace to enjoy the wonderful outside with views of the mountains and sunset and newly built shaded BBQ area complete with sink. We aim to make the villa as comfortable as possible and hope that we have provided everything you need to feel at home and relax. Help yourselves to the oranges and lemons from the trees for fresh orange juice in the morning or for the perfect gin and tonic.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely two weeks staying in this very light and spacious villa with great mountain views. The children made good use of the pool table in the games room and the swimming pool and we enjoyed many barbecues on the kitchen veranda next to the orange and lemon trees.There are some very good local restaurants within walking distance (especially O Vaticano opposite the villa) all of which are reasonably priced, the local shop stocks basic items and bread from the daily van is a must ! We found plenty to do in the area and particularly enjoyed swimming in the local rivers and lake at Rio Caldo. This is a great place to stay if you want to experience the non-touristy Portugal where very little English is spoken and 1 euro will buy a bottle of beer or a glass of vinho verde !
