CASA DE INFESTA - with swimming pool

Casa de Infesta is a traditional granite house, which has been the property of the same family for over two centuries.

Although it was subject to major transformations in 1864 and 1909, these did not spoil the harmony of the construction. In the works made later, it was sought to keep the house of 1909.

The house has a capacity for 6 persons. Bedclothes, towels and tablecloths are available. The kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, cooker, oven, fridge, microwave, kitchenware and dishes.

The kitchen has an open fire.

The swimming pool is shared only with the guests of Casa da Frente - Infesta.

About the property

Casa de Infesta

The "Casa de Infesta" site is composed of two independent country houses and with a different personality, which can be rented separately or together. Both houses have private independent external spaces and share the swimming pool only with the guests of the other house.

The location in a small farm on the west slope of the Aboboreira mountain range, offers the visitor a magnificent view over the valley.

In the surrounding area, the vinho verde district, the visitor will be able to see traditional wine-growing practices: vinha de enforcado (”hanged man vine”, a vine that grows up a tree) and trellised vine.

In a favoured location, close to the towns of Amarante, Baião, Marco de Canaveses and Vila Real, all worth seeing, «Casa de Infesta» offers the visitor many opportunities to explore a region of high tourist interest.

The Douro valley, world heritage site, is accessible for daytrips.

Owner's Response: Ao receber um hóspede faço o meu melhor para que se sinta bem.e sinto um certo orgulho por ter escolhido um arquitecto cuja obra agrada aos visitantes. O resto é feito pela natureza que é pródiga em rodear os nossos hospedes de paisagens que são um mimo para os olhos e temas a não perder para as nossas máquinas fotográficas. As mais das vezes como que uma corrente magnética estabelece-se este hóspede e proprietário. Foi o que desta vez aconteceu também !
