About the property

The beach house, "Casa das Riscas" was conceived as a typical Costa Nova beach house, although it is located in the heart of Barra beach, embracing the sea and the estuary of Aveiro. It is situated in a very quiet place with easy access to several points of interest. It is located just 9 km from the city of Aveiro, Venice of Portugal.

On the other side of the ria is the Natural reserve of the dunes of S. Jacinto (you can cross by ferry). Close to this beach is the Costa Nova beach with its characteristic striped wooden houses. On a bike path next to the estuary that connects the two beaches you can enjoy pleasant walks by bike or on foot.

The gastronomic region of Bairrada (pig and sparkling), 30 km away, 80 km from Oporto and 80 km from Coimbra.

Detached villa, typology T5, with three floors plus basement.

The house has two fronts with two distinct entrances, the spring the main entrance, the west the entrance that communicates with the patio, basement and kitchen. Easy parking next to both fronts of the house.

The ground floor consists of the leisure areas and services of the house, a large living room with sofas and TV area that extends to an outside space through a large balcony, kitchen with food confection area and dining area (table for 10people) and a bathroom with shower.

Outside the patio is a space conducive to socializing. Here there is a barbecue and a protected area with awning.

The basement is large with plenty of natural light as it communicates directly with the patio via a ramp allowing easy access to the bikes. Here the billiards and ping-pong tables are the delights of this space dedicated to leisure.

The first and second floors are intended for rest areas. On the first floor we find three bedrooms, two double, one of which has two single beds and a living room with a balcony. There is also a full bathroom to support the floor.

The second floor houses two large double bedrooms with views of the river and also a full bathroom to support both bedrooms. In both rooms it is possible to place bed for baby.

Agradable y enriquecedora estancia.

  • 4 of 5

La casa está muy bien. Todo lo que se ofrece en la página está disponible: menaje suficiente, camas en buen estado...; el billar, la mesa de ping-pong y las bicicletas te dan juego si el tiempo no está muy bueno; hay kms de carril bici, que te permite ir incluso hasta el pueblo de al lado y más allá sin peligro alguno para niños y mayores.

Vasco es muy atento y amable. Una persona de fiar.

La playa es estupenda, larga, limpia, generalmente con olas.Con socorristas. El agua como en Galicia. A menudo hace viento a una hora o a otra, que si es del oeste no molesta.

La zona nos gustó mucho, es muy interesante descubrir cómo se ganaban la vida hasta no hace tanto tiempo. Eso se puede descubrir con las visitas a los canales de Aveiro, el museo del bacalao en Ílhavo, etc...

También es un punto interesante para conocer otras ciudades de Portugal, está a una hora de Coimbra hacia el sur y a otra de Oporto hacia el Norte; y otras pequeñas poblaciones más cerca.

La gente es muy amable y hacen todo lo posible por entenderse contigo. Para los españoles no hay problema.

Si quieres comer fuera hay muchos sitios de diferente tipo donde hacerlo. En los restaurantes no hay plato del día. Pides un plato que suele venir acompañado de guarnición. Con eso se come bien. Las bebidas y el pan se cobran aparte y mientras se prepara el plato suelen ponerte sobre la mesa aperitivos que se cobran. Con todo viene saliendo por 12 euros persona o menos.

En definitiva nos ha gustado conocer un poco de este país y estas gentes, tan cercanos y tan desconocidos.

Maison très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une agréable semaine à deux familles (9 personnes) dans cette maison en août 2017. Elle est conforme à sa description et en plus le soleil était au rendez vous. Elle est suffisamment proche de la plage pour y aller à pied.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Agreeable house in a quiet neighbourhood, not too far from the beach of Barra! Spacious enough not to bother each other even with 9+1 persons in the house, if someone wanted privacy he could easily retreat in a quiet spot.

The children had a great time with the recreational facilities: playing snooker, table tennis and darts, impossible to be bored!

The house is well equipped, everything you need is present, even an iron and ironing board!

We were also very please to know that Internet connection was installed some weeks before we arrived.

Vasco was always very responsive to our requests and provided us with an inflatable mattress for one more person to sleep for a couple of nights, which we appreciated a lot.

We would recommend it to everyone!

Tres bon sejour à Barra

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans une maison tres spacieuse et très bien aménagée. Cuisine equipee, belles chambres, terrasse avec barbecue et un garage tres grand avec billard, ping pong et 9 vélos mis à diposition pour parcourir toute la station.

Quartier tres calme a 500m de la plage. Vasco, le proprietaire est très accueillant et toujours à l'ecoute.

Une bon pied à terre au calme pour visiter des villes comme aveiro et porto

et profiter également des plages alentour (bon spot de surf et de peche a la ligne).
