Casa Julia is a beautiful rustic style bungalow, in a peaceful small rural development of similar styled properties, in the heart of the Rosal wine producing area. It has a compact well maintained, secure garden, with a single depth private pool. Its large shady terrace has views of the garden, pool, vineyards and distant hills, with good quality terrace furniture, BBQ and loungers being available to guests. The pretty, large village of O Rosal is close by, and has all the shopping facilities required for a self catering family. Lovely estuary and Atlantic sandy beaches are 10 minutes drive, as is the working fishing port of La Guardia, where numerous sea food restaurants abound. The lofty Monte Tecla is visible from Casa Julia, which has fantastic views down the Portuguese and Galician coasts, and is steeped in Celtic and Roman history. Indeed, Portugal is only 15 minutes drive away across the Rio Minho, which can be crossed by ferry or bridge. A whole new country to explore.

Maison très agréable et fonctionnelle très bien placée pour découvrir la galice et le nord du portug
Accueil chaleureux de Robin et Broc ( chien très humain!) avec un suivi de notre sejour ( descriptif pour les visites, lieux de restauration etc....). Seul bémol! Les propriétaires de la maison jouxtant celle-ci peu sympathiques avec un petit chien ( roquet) toujours aux abois! Une belle expérience néanmoins! Nous étions deux mais maison idéale pour une famille ou deux couples ( deux salles de bain). Au plaisir de refaire une halte dans cette belle région riche en culture et gastronomie!
Beautiful property in wonderful location
We have just returned from Casa Julia; what a wonderful house so comfortable and well equipped.The location is quiet but not isolated with some excellent restaurants 5 minutes away and lots of local vineyards if you like to go wine tasting. We took the opportunity to visit local towns; driving over the mountains to Baiona was a highlight. A Guarda in the evening is a beautiful harbour with great fish restaurants. Another day we managed to cycle around Ponte de Lima. Our sons did not join us this time but would have loved the many opportunities to surf, kayak and cycle. Driving from Porto airport was easy; as Casa Julia is just over the border in Spain. We would thoroughly recommend staying at this lovely home for a holiday
Lovely property and facilities
The property is a home away from home with everything you need. The pool was great to keep our young children occupied, we did wine tasting and pipped over to Portugal for a day and visited the local area. We would keep this property in mind for future holidays and Robin was very helpful.
