CASA DO JAVALI (QUINTA DO VEDOURO)

Ponte da Barca Cottage Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms (sleeps 9) in 2 houses (4 and 5 respectively)

These two 18th Century farm cottages have been lovingly restored in their original style and with materials and furnishings of the period. Much of the furniture is antique, dating from the 16th to 19th centuries, and chosen with a fine sense of style and taste. Modern items have been carefully selected too, from the Arraiolos rugs to the brass taps in the bathrooms and kitchens. Set in extensive tranquil gardens, these are houses for those who value being surrounded by beautiful things. The houses are old and refurbished with an aged feel that adds to their authenticity. Outside the ornamental gardens, the Estate mostly comprises a thriving vineyard.

Beaches and Golf: The nearby river beaches on the River Lima provide warm, sheltered and safe bathing. Or head for the “Costa Verde”, with its many “Blue Flag” sandy beaches spread over an 80km stretch of Atlantic coastline. Here is a varied selection of family seaside resort, surf beaches, sandy, rocky, wide, discreet, busy, romantic beaches - you can go to a different one each day to suit your mood. Or you can cross the river to Spain for a change.

Quinta do Vedouro is a 15 minute drive from the best golf course in the region:

Ponte de Lima (15km), amidst a scenery of mountains, vineyards and fruit gardens, is a course typical of the Minho region. Par 71,6005m, including Portugal's longest hole at 622m (par 5).

There are other golf courses at Golf Ría de Vigo, Spain, Estela and Quinta da Barca (9 hole)

In the village and surrounding area: * Visit the Roman church in Bravães.

* Visit the historic towns of Ponte da Barca, Ponte de Lima, Paredes de Coura, Arcos de Valdevez, Vila Nova de Cerveira, Viana do Castelo or Braga – all within about 40km.

* Tour through the rugged unspoilt landscape of the Peneda-Gerês National Park - Quinta do Vedouro is right on the boundary.

* Wind your way through the tiny villages and narrow winding mountain lanes of Alto Minho, where people still live a rural life out of another era, and offer a glimpse of a hidden Portugal that makes it hard to believe this is 21st Century Europe.

* Take a trip to Spain – through Vigo via the spectacular University and pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela, up to La Coruña and the Bay of Biscay, or along the rocky Galician coastline.

* Go bargain hunting in one of the local markets – there’s one every day in one town or another.

* Go canoeing, horse riding, walking, fishing, climbing, hunting or some other outdoor activity.

Guestbook comments from the manager
The cottage was beautiful - full of antiques and everything we needed. The veranda was great - to see the views and the mountains on a clear day.The swimming pool was clean and very private. A good location to explore many areas with lots of towns and villages and beautiful countryside to explore. Manuel and Thereza were great hosts and very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.

We loved this place - fascinating inside with a fantastic large balcony with views over hills and villages. It was very hot while we were there so the lovely pool was well-appreciated. There's a lot to do there so our only regret was that we only stayed 5 days - and it was too hot to go walking in the national park which is very beautiful.

BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, YET CLOSE TO AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
Casa do Javali was perfect for our family. The pool was magnificent, the scenery wonderful & Manuel & Teresa were the perfect hosts.

The local villages, towns & cities were all within very easy reach, because of the fantastic road system. No "are we nearly there yet?" from the back of the car, there is too much to see!

The house was beautifully clean, although we were barely in it - my only criticism is the lack of washing machine, but we managed. Just arrived back home a bit smudged!

Looking forward to booking in again to a wonderful house.

Lying just on the edge of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, and between the attractive historic towns of Ponte de Lima and Ponte da Barca, the Quinta is ideally located for touring Alto Minho, which is steeped in history and full of tiny villages and rural by-ways. The beaches of the Costa Verde, and the cities of Porto, Braga, Viana do Castelo and Barcelos, and Vigo in Spain, are all within reasonable driving distance. There are two airports within 40 minutes’ drive and easy access to the northern Spanish province of Galicia.

In the village, there is a small shop just down the hill for basic provisions, a café, a restaurant and a “tasca”. Nearby in both Ponte da Barca and Ponte de Lima there are many good restaurants, and supermarkets and other shops, as well as a variety of tourist and cultural attractions.
