About Manuel

Occupation: Teacher secondary education since 1992.

Living in Viana do Castelo neighborhood where I was born.

I studied at the University of Coimbra.

Manuel purchased this house in 2004

What makes this house unique

Near the house:

 Indulge in a mini-cruise on the river Minho and Douro river and a 'Royal' dinner in a first class restaurant. 'Port Party': open bus tour in the historic center of Porto, followed by a Port Wine tasting and a visit to the wine shop. 'Golden Day': scenic train trip to Régua, in the heart of the golden Douro Valley, lunch in the best restaurant in town overlooking the river, and a peaceful cruise back to Porto. Unforgettable meal and wine, tremendous surroundings and a truly relaxing and stress free way to experience the best of Portugal. Carpe diem !!

To the countryside, rugged and wild, visit the Peneda-Geres National Park, or go further into the Douro Valley. The village sits at the base of Serra d'Arga (784m), and the villages and valleys of the country in its hills offer a landscape from an earlier era. There is a nature reserve near in wetlands: Bertiandos Lagoon. History, churches and monuments, culture and nightlife abound in a dozen towns within a short drive, or for more sophisticated entertainment, there is the Casino of Povoa de Varzim. For the more active, there's karting, canoeing, surfing, bowling, cycling, fishing and horse riding. A visit to the city of Porto World Heritage Site is a must, as well as local traditional festivals with folklore, singing, dancing, decorative crafts and the famous cuisine of the Minho region. And there are plenty of restaurants serving the famous dishes of Minho.

je voulais réserver la maison Mirra mais elle n’était pas disponible donc ils m'ont proposé la villa FEITOSA et là le bonheur....Je tenais a vous féliciter pour votre villa, elle est magnifique !! et supérieur a mes attentes...

nous avons passes un super week end dans votre villa, il ne manquait rien, mes 25 invités ont pu apprécier leur chambre avec salle bain individuel, serviette pour chacun, et le tout dans une très grande propreté et sans oublié la piscine, le tout dans un cadre de rêve.

On voulait remercier Sylvia qui est une employée très agréable et nous a très bien reçu, merci

Grace a vous les 50 ans de mon mari fut une réussite, encore merci pour votre villa magnifique

je ne manquerai pas d'en parler autour de moi et de garder vos coordonnées pour une prochaine fois

cordialement, Mme Sellié

Cette maison étant déjà occupée, on nous a proposé PALMEIRAS POOL BEACH, une magnifique villa au calme( et c'est important), haut de gamme qui peut accueillir plus de 10 personnes avec de vrais lits d'appoint pour recevoir en plus 5 enfants. De très grandes pièces avec des salles de bain luxueuses. Que dire du sauna, jacuzzi et piscine extérieure si ce n'est le paradis. Tout est bien aménagé et pensé. Merci au propriétaire pour les draps, linge de toilettes, produits à douche, sans supplément ce qui est rare en France ! Merci aussi pour sa grande coupe de fruits en arrivant et la bouteille de porto. Ah l'accueil des portugais ! pas besoin de faire le ménage en partant (encore rare aussi en France) même si par respect, nous n'avons pas laissé la maison sale. Il faut penser à ceux qui nettoient !

vous pouvez y aller les yeux fermés et en entrant, vous direz comme nous : OUAH !

It is 1.7 km from the beach of Forte do Cão, 2 km from Moledo do Minho and its ocean beach, 200 m from coffee shops and bakery, 1 km from inexpensive restaurants and 2 km from a supermarket. It is 35 km from Vigo (Spain) airport and 65 km from Porto airport.
