About Adria Corrie(owner)

I live 5 mins walk down the lane.I have now been in Portugal for 22 years,previously I lived in Brasil and USA.My husband worked for Taylors/Fonseca port wine company until he died in 2010.

I love this beautiful area,laid back,little traffic,lots of places to explore,beautiful beaches,both in Portugal and Spain and very few tourists.

Adria Corrie(owner) purchased this villa in 2003

Why Adria Corrie(owner) chose Vila Nova de Cerveira

Casa das Oliveiras is very spacious,plenty of room both inside and outside in the terraced garden.The view from the house towards the Arga hills is spectacular.The kitchen is very well equiped,and guests have enjoyed using the BBQ and experimenting with the old bread oven in the garden.

What makes this villa unique

Originally this was two small farmhouses which we made into one.It was a ruin covered in ivy when we bought it and restored it in order to rent out for families to come on holiday.

The unique benifits are that it is big enough for two families to share,the pool is big and it is not shared and I live just down the lane, nearby to give any help or advice if needed.
