Overview

Overview

Vila Praia de Ancora Villa Rental Photos and Description

Four bedroom self-catering family villa on the dunes overlooking a sandy bay

A large, spacious, family home, extremely well equipped for a perfect self-catering holiday by the beach. Downstairs, a bedroom, bathroom, the open plan lounge and dining room with TV and DVD and plenty of comfy seating and a large kichen with breakfast table and semicircular bay window looking out to the garden. Upstairs, another three bedrooms and a second bathroom. Two bedrooms have a sea view; another is a large children's room under the eaves, with space for up to 5 children to sleep. Outside, the house is surrounded on four sides by a fenced garden, laid to lawn and with several shrubs and trees. A BBQ provides the opportunity to enjoy the garden well into the evening, and there's also plenty of garden furniture too.

Villa Dunas offers a comfortable home-from-home rather than the sterile atmosphere of a new, pristine development, with its slightly 'lived-in' feel that makes it all the more pleasant to be in, especially being so close to the sea.

Beaches: Apart from the newly cleaned up Gelfa beach, right on the doorstep, the family seaside resort of Vila Praia de Âncora is 2km away, and either side of it, along a 50km stretch, are the many safe, clean beaches of the Costa Verde - surf beaches, sandy, rocky, wide, discreet, family, romantic beaches - you can go to a different one each day to suit your mood. At Afife there's an international competition surfing beach (and surf/body boarding lessons); at Caminha there's a beach with one side on the Atlantic, the other on the River Minho; or you can hire a ferryman to take you out to a deserted island; on Serra de Arga there are fresh mountain pools and waterfalls; and there are also warm, sheltered river beaches on the Rivers Lima and Minho.

Touring, tourism: The villa is ideally located for easy access to a range of activities: The rugged, wild countryside of Peneda-Gerês National Park, & further away the Douro Valley; The villages and country lanes of Alto Minho, a landscape from an earlier era; Serra d’Arga (784m); The Lagoas nature reserve at Bertiandes; The Casino at Póvoa de Varzim; History, culture and nightlife in a dozen towns within a short drive; Karting, canoeing, surfing & bodyboarding, 10-pin bowling, fishing, horse riding; The World Heritage City of Porto; The traditional Romarias, folklore, singing, dancing, decorative crafts and cuisine of the Minho region; Restaurants galore, serving the famous Minho dishes.

Gelfa

Overlooking the dunes and just a few hundred metres to a nice sandy beach, at the edge of a pine forest, with views across a wide bay, this is the heart of the Costa Verde. Vila Praia de Âncora, with full amenities, is a pleasant stroll away along a wooden walkway across the dunes. And the whole region - a mix of fishing villages, summer tourist resorts, historic towns, quaint mountain villages and lush green countryside is easily accessible by car or train. World Heritage Porto is less than 1 hour away, and Spain is even closer. Beautiful unspoiled scenery, clean sandy beaches, dozens of great restaurants, a simple rural way of life almost forgotten in other parts of Europe and a pristine environment (clean air, clean water, little traffic or noise pollution, very few tourists) make this area ideal for a stress-free, relaxing holiday. Gelfa is far removed from the bustle of modern life and yet there's plenty to do nearby. The villa is on the edge of a tiny beachside hamlet which - along with the beach - has seen some recent up-market development and it's a very desirable place to be. The villa is in a cul-de-sac of half a dozen houses, and immediately facing the dunes and the beach, where there's a great fish restaurant and bar. In the other direction are the famous surf beaches of Afife, and all along the coast many more beaches to suit all.

tastes. A new motorway network nearby also provides easy access to the whole region, from World Heritage Porto to Galicia in Spain and inland to Braga and the Gerês National Park - one of Europe's last great wilderness environments. A great location for relaxing on the beach or for touring around exploring to mountains and countryside.
