About the property

For those who love the quietness of the countryside, this is the place for our vacations. Located in a small typical village of “Minho”, with is genuine habitants, authentic landscapes and far from the big touristic tours. A sunny house, great to read a book, with a magnificent garden for children to play or make a barbecue with family and friends.

The house is from 1910 and was reconstructed in the late 90s by a famous Portuguese architect. Under his orientation was built a house full of personality and unique details. The traditional characteristics of the house (granite walls and original areas) were preserved in confortable and modern spaces. It’s a cosy home and everybody fells it’s it one home.

Une agréable maison près de Barcelos

Agréable et vaste maison, située à 10mn de Barcelos, et à 25mn de Povoa de Varzim.

La propriétaire Patricia est adorable, fiable et arrageante.

Les - :

- la présence de mouches, attirées par la ferme juste en face

Les +:

- le grand jardin

Je conseille cette maison, nous n'avons pas été déçus!

Belle maison de campagne très agréable à vivre et bien équipée

Un barbecue et une grande terrasse permet de déguster grillades et spécialités locales en plein air.

Une véranda spacieuse et très lumineuse permet de se prélasser dans d'agréables fauteuils sans prendre de coup de soleil.

La cuisine spacieuse et bien équipée permet de préparer toutes les spécialités portugaises et autres.

Les deux salles de bain équipées de toilettes sont également très appréciable lors d'une location à plusieurs couples.

Séjour très agréable dans une ancienne ferme rénovée avec goût au coeur du village. Maison très fraîche en été, spacieuse et bien équipée. Seule réserve : le bruit de la route. Bonne situation pour rayonner dans tout le nord du Portugal. La propriétaire,Patricia,nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de gentillesse et d'attentions.

Nous avons adoré cette maison exceptionnelle offerte en location depuis peu de temps. Un séjour inoubliable entre amis. Seuls bémols, le bruit de la route et les mouches attirées par la ferme locale. Merci à la jeune propriétaire qui a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable.

Take a walk to the city of Oporto a World Heritage place, and taste a Oporto wine in the banks of the Douro river. Enjoy a tan in the Apulia beach and eat some delicious fresh sardines.
