Overview

Barcelos Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 2. Romantic 1 bedroom gatehouse set in 35 acres of private gardens and woodland. Quiet and secluded yet only a 40 minute drive from the airport, 6km from the historic market town of Barcelos. 20 mins drive to the long sandy beaches of Ofir and Apulia and within easy reach of many historic towns and unspoilt national parks.

The gatehouse to a lovingly restored Franciscan monastery, now home to an English family who also offer bed and breakfast. Set in 35 acres of gardens and woodland, the Gatehouse is the entrance to the cloistered gardens and is designed along nautical lines. The bedroom and living room are on the first floor, the galley kitchen and shower room below decks on the ground floor. The walled verandahs fore and aft afford spectacular views of the Quinta. Woodland paths to the top of the hill reveal breathtaking views to the coast 12kms away and inland to the mountains of the National Park of Peneda/Geres. Although quiet and secluded it is only 6km from the market town of Barcelos, famous for its ceramic cockerels and lively thursday market. Braga,with its baroque churches is only 20 minutes away. For those who prefer total relaxation, the gardens, terraces and the 16th century font and swimming pool 200m from the house provide the perfect spot in which to unwind away from it all.

Idyllic Gatehouse

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the charming gatehouse and had what must be the best views of the Quinta. We breakfasted on the balcony each morning with the woods and pool as a backdrop and listened to the birds, frogs and fountain - magical!

Piers was very helpful and friendly - we arrived with a car problem and he went out of his way to help us find a local garage who sorted it out in no time. And his knowledge of the area really helped us make the most of this fascinating part of Portugal. We're already looking forward to our return!
