Casa das Andorinhas (swallows) has three bedrooms (1 double, 2 with bunk beds); Casa do Sol has four (1 double, 3 with bunk beds). Both cottages are completely independent, and some distance from each other - it's almost 200 metres through the pine wood. Each has a cosy living room with fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen and two bathrooms. Larger groups or families can rent both cottages, and there is enough space at the dining table for everyone to eat together. Outside, each cottage has its own barbecue and patio for al fresco dining, and the heavily wooded gardens are very extensive and offer a high degree of seclusion. There's plenty of outdoor furniture to enable you to laze away the days.
Moledo is a very discreet family seaside village, long regarded as one of the jewels of the Costa Verde. Nestling between a long stretch of sand dunes and an extensive protected pine forest, it has a beautiful sandy beach, with views towards the uninhabited island of Fort Ínsua (accessible by boatman from Caminha) and the imposing Santa Tecla mountain (with its Bronze Age archaeological sites) marking the border with Spain. Here, there are no high rise modern developments, just a quiet unspoilt village, though it's a popular lively spot at the height of the summer, a handful of excellent restaurants, and the clean, safe beach. Nearby, Caminha and Vila Praia de Âncora (each 4km in either direction) offer supermarkets and other amenities, accessible by train or walking along the beach paths. From the quaint village station, trains also go regularly to Porto and to Vigo in Spain, so it's not even really necessary to have a car. Beyond, though, is another world, of mountains and historic towns, old forgotten traditional villages and the rugged National Park. And the cities of Porto and Braga, and Santiago in Spain, are easily reached by a new motorway network. All perfect for a family holiday, or a romantic getaway with quiet afternoons on the beach, or for touring a region that modern 'progress' has yet to reach. The cottages are only 300 metres from the beach and centre of the village, yet almost completely hidden in a 2,500 square metre walled garden of pine trees and flowering shrubs, which guarantees a quiet, relaxing atmosphere.
