IDEAL FOR DIFFERENT GENERATIONS
This modern family villa accommodates up to 11 people. It can also be be rented as two independent apartments with three bedrooms each. Offering glorious vistas of the surrounding landscape, this is a luxurious villa with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, three kitchens, two lounges, dining room, a patio, three terraces and a garden. Villa Kansha is fully furnished, and beautifully and stylishly decorated, equally ideal for a family summer holiday or as a base for touring Northern Portugal.
It's a beautiful spot for golfers, but also for anyone looking for refined accommodation in the midst of stunning landscapes and a region full of historic and cultural interest.
ALSO FOR COUPLES AND SMALL FAMILIES
While it is ideal for complete summer family holidays, the low off-season prices and the possibility of renting only part of the house make it perfect for short breaks for smaller families or even couples.
HUGE RANGE OF OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES
If you like to add some variety to your holiday, and can drag yourself away from simply relaxing in the sun, Ponte de Lima is ideally located to offer an unusual range of pursuits: walking and cycling, surfing, swimming, horse-riding, canoeing, sailing, sea and river fishing, birdwatching, karting, tennis at the golf club, 4x4 trekking in the hills.
AMAZING ATLANTIC BEACHES
Just 25km away is the Costa Verde, a 100km long stretch of excellent, clean beaches from Spain to Porto. You can visit the family seaside resorts of Moledo and Vila Praia de Âncora, the main port town of Viana do Castelo, the charming border village of Caminha. In between, there are surf beaches, sandy, rocky, romantic beaches - you can go to a different one each day to suit your mood. Close to the Villa there are also warm, sheltered river beaches on the River Lima, and in the Serra d'Arga hills there are several hidden spots with waterfalls and crystal clear bathing-pools amongst the rocks.
CULTURE, HISTORY AND NATIONAL PARK
For those who enjoy rural sightseeing there's the rugged countryside of Peneda-Gerês National Park, & further away the World Heritage Douro Valley wine-growing region. The villages and country lanes of Alto Minho, offer a landscape from an earlier era, including some of Iberia’s best-preserved Roman settlements. Serra d’Arga (784m) provides great views in all directions, and the Lagoas Nature Reserve offers a chance to see some wetland wildlife. For more sophisticated entertainment, there's the Casino at Póvoa de Varzim, and plenty of history, culture and night-life in a dozen towns and cities within a short drive - Guimarães, Vila Nova de Cerveira, Caminha, Valença, Tui, Braga, Barcelos, Viana do Castelo and the World Heritage City of Porto. The traditional Romarias (festivals), with their folklore, singing, dancing and decorative crafts and costumes provide a taste of the local culture. And the famed cuisine of the Minho region can be found in restaurants galore.
Die Ferienwohnung befindet sich im unteren Teil der Villa. Wir verbrachten hier zu viert eine gute Woche, genossen die sehr stilvoll eingerichteten Räume und die herrliche große Terrasse mit Blick auf die Berge. Das Haus ist sehr sauber und liebevoll für den Empfang hergerichtet, die Eigentümerin sehr nett, die Betreuung rundum perfekt. Bei der Einrichtung fehlte es an nichts. Auch die Lage des Hauses ist ideal, eine halbe Autostunde bis ans Meer und die Städte Braga und Porto sowie der Nationalpark Peneda Geres können in weniger als einer Stunde erreicht werden - ein idealer Platz, um den Norden Portugals kennen zu lernen.
