COMFORTABLE 4-BEDROOM VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL

Vila Nova de Cerveira Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms + shower, sleeps 8

Vila Boa is a fairly new and very spacious 4-bedroom villa that is used for part of the year as a family home, so is extremely well equipped and very comfortably furnished. Basically, it has everything you might need for your holiday, and a lot more besides. The focal point of the house is a large open plan room comprising lounge and dining room, with a great kitchen at the side. Additional features include a breakfast bar, a piano, a fireplace, satellite TV and plenty of very comfy sofas. A children's bedroom, then 6 steps lead to the bedroom wing, with 3 more double rooms and two bathrooms. Outside, there are plenty of lawns dotted with shrubs and fruit trees, a barbecue with supporting facilities, two terraces, one on either side of the house, and a great swimming pool with a children's pool that doubles as a kind of jacuzzi. The property is at the edge of the village, with specatcular views across the valley, and is an ideal spot for a relaxing, stress-free family holiday.

This house is immaculately presented, fully equipped, and with all linen and towels provided, and is in an ideal spot for a great summer family holiday. The private garden and pool provide a great environment for the kids to play, and the setting, surrounded by hills and forests, is enchanting.

The location makes it easy to discover all the treasures of this unspoilt, friendly region. For those who enjoy rural sightseeing, just touring around, or taking some long walks, there's plenty of scope in the meandering lanes of Alto Minho. There's plenty of history, culture and night-life in a dozen towns within a short drive. There's karting, canoeing, surfing and fishing, and the World Heritage City of Porto. The traditional Romarias, folklore, singing, dancing and decorative crafts and costumes provide an unusual taste of the local culture. And the famed cuisine of the Minho region can be found in restaurants galore, accompanied by Portuguese wine - one of the world's best kept secrets!

Visitors will naturally be drawn to Vila Nova de Cerveira, Valença and Caminha, three of the closest towns, all on the banks of the River Minho, which forms the border with Spain. Each is full of history and has its own character. Or cross the bridge to Spain (or take the ferry from Caminha), for a slightly different cultural experience - and to get cheap petrol!

The beaches of the Costa Verde are a short drive away: 100km of safe, clean beaches, predominantly wide stretches of white sand, with a comprehensive selection of surf beaches, family beaches and quieter, more romantic spots - you can go to a different one each day to suit your mood. The variety is amazing and though the Atlantic water is never very warm, the summer sun is guaranteed to be scorching. The local hills also have many mountain pools and waterfalls that are good for bathing, and there are also warm, sheltered river beaches on the River Minho.

One additional point of archaeological interest, just five minutes' drive away is the fortified Iron Age settlement at Cossourado.

Vila Boa is home from home and is brimming over with every facility required for the perfect holiday. The villa itself is very spacious and comfortable. The gardens, pool and large patio are very well maintained and have beautiful views. There is also a large balcony off the lounge with outstanding views of the surrounding area. Visitors will definitely require a car as the villa is not close to any tourist type amenities, but there are several towns within driving distance and the supermarket "Pingo doce" in Cerveira is big and very well stocked. The Spanish border and the walled town of Valenca are close by. Also Ponta de Lima which is the oldest town in Portugal and is next to a river with a Roman bridge and lots of interesting buildings, is well worth a visit. Local to the villa which is located in a hilly area there are lots of walking paths, ideal for enjoying the fantastic views.
Paula, the owner, was waiting for us when we arrived and made us very welcome. She provided us with a very good welcome pack and told us to use what ever we needed during our stay. She also gave us her contact number just in case we were stuck with anything. Thank you Paula, we enjoyed our holiday very much

Relaxing Holiday in Northern Portugal

  • 4 of 5
A great place to stay in North Portugal. The villa is well maintained and equiped, and the owner, Paula, is very friendly and most helpful. This is clearly a family home and there are very many personal touches including photos, books and ornaments. Given the open plan layout and unfenced pool it is probably more suitable for adults or families with older children.

The villa is in a quiet rural location in the hills. Sitting on the balcony for meals, whilst enjoying the view, is a real pleasure. The stone built barbeque is phenomenal and great fun to use. The pool was greatly enjoyed during the hot weather!

There are many interesting places to visit nearby including the historic fortified town of Valenca da Minho. Ponta de Lima is an attractive town to visit and the Market at Barcelos (on Thursdays) is huge and varied, catering for locals and tourists.

The beach is easily accessible at Viano do Castello and the Geres Peneda National Park is very close too. The church at Bom Jesus combines culture and exercise as you climb the mountain by a series of staircases to reach the church at the top.

There is a large well-stocked supermarket in Vila Nova de Cerveira (10 minutes drive) as well as a small shop in the village for essentials. The owner is also happy for guests to use produce for the garden (indeed she greeted us on our arrival with offers of fresh picked plums!)

All in all a relaxing place to stay and a great base for exploring northern Portugal.

Just a 10-minute drive inland from Vila Nova de Cerveira, a very attractive historic town on the River Minho, that forms the border with Spain, Candemil is a tiny village of farmers (population just over 200), surrounded by beautiful countryside, breathtaking views, pine and eucalpytus forests and quaint mountain lanes. Yet it's still only 5 minutes from a motorway that gives quick and easy access to Porto (1hr), Santiago de Compostela (1hr), Braga (20 min), the beaches of the Costa Verde (30 min) and the wilderness of the the National Park to the east. Plenty of history, plenty of wildlife, great restaurants, sandy beaches, peace, tranquillity and wonderfully fresh air. Easily accessible from Porto and Santiago International airports, it's an ideal location for a summer family holiday - lazing in the sunshine by your own private swimming pool, taking the short trip to the beaches of the Costa Verde, exploring the countryside and historic towns nearby, enjoying dining out and the famous local hospitality ....
