Viana do Castelo District Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Fully equipped self-catering apartment for 5 people

This modern family villa accommodates up to 5 people in an independent ground-floor apartment. Offering glorious vistas of the surrounding landscape, this is a luxurious apartment with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen/dining room, lounge, a patio 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.


While it is ideal for complete summer family holidays, the low off-season prices make it perfect for short breaks for smaller families or even couples.


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.


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.


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.

Vacances de rêve à la Villa Kansha

  • 5 of 5

Des amis et moi cherchions un logement au Portugal à proximité de Viana do Castelo et nous avions beaucoup de mal à en trouver un. Cette magnifique villa nous a tout de suite séduit ainsi que la propriétaire qui est tout simplement adorable. Il s'agit d'une villa située à Ponte de Lima, le plus vieux village du Portugal ( plein de charme). Le quartier résidentiel est calme avec de belles maisons qui bordent la route d'une colline, Villa Kansha se situe au sommet ! Nous étions 5 jeunes et cet endroit était parfait pour nous, tout s'est passé dans la convivialitée pour un prix modeste !!! Nous recommandons absolument !!! De plus, l'accès aux villes alentours et commerces est très rapide, merci encore à la propriétaire pour cette location qui est allez au delà de nos espérances et pour sa présence et ses réponses rapides pour la réservation... J'y retournerai plus que volontiers l'année prochaine avec mes amis !

Owner's Response: An excellent guest! Quiet, tidy, no problem whatsoever. I give her top top rating! Bringing a dog was a surprise to me, but it turned out fine in the end, even he too was a well behaved quiet little thing. I would love all guests to be like these ones!

Stilvolles, großzügiges Haus in wunderbarer Lage

  • 5 of 5

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.

Located close to Ponte de Lima, in northern Portugal, only 40 kilometres from the Spanish (Galician) border, 75km from Porto and 25km from the Atlantic beaches of the Costa Verde. The region is well served by low-cost airlines from Britain and northern Europe, and access is easy from Porto, as well as from Santiago de Compostela and Vigo airports.


The ferry ports of Santander and Bilbao are several hours' drive away.


A junction on the new motorway network of north-west Iberia, just 3km away, offers quick and easy access to most of Portugal and Galicia - cities like Porto, Braga and Guimarães, as well as the famous Spanish pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela.


This is ‘old’ Portugal – Ponte de Lima, only 15 minutes walk away, is the oldest town in the country – rich in culture and folklore, and with its own distinctive gastronomy. Here, too, there's a good range of restaurants, supermarkets, shops and other amenities.


The adjacent championship golf course offers an added attraction, with its unspoilt rural landscape in the typical Minho countryside, with mountains to the east and the Atlantic Ocean not far to the west, and plenty of views of vine-covered slopes throughout the Lima valley.

Designed by English architect, Ivo Curwen, this luxury villa, overlooks the 12th tee of the Ponte de Lima Golf Course. Villa Kansha is generously proportioned on a south-facing slope, and the layout includes many distinctive features. The house is stylishly and tastefully decorated and comfort is the key word. Outside, the extensive and completely private garden is mainly laid to lawn, with attractive shrubs and mature trees. It slopes down towards the golf course, facing south, and there is a large patio and covered loggia at ground level, with terraces above.
