Enjoy quiet time in a centuries-old cottage 25km from Porto and minutes from the ocean. The antique furnished 10-room house sits in 6 acres of walled land. It hosts 4 guests in the two bedrooms. We can set up an additional cot in the office, which will have access to the third bathroom. We can accommodate a young child in a crib. We offer all contemporary amenities and a bounty of space to spare. Each stay includes a basket of seasonal vegetables, fruits and eggs from our farm next door.
Casa da Mineira is a airy 160 m2 or 1600sf house that sits in a 6-acre walled property. The grounds include a garden, lawn, granite patio and areas of orchard and cultivated fields. The grounds are part of a large 300-acre farm called Quinta de Vilarinho which has been in the family for many generations. The present configuration of the farm compound, with its mansion, barns and stables dates from the mid 19th century.
The house has 2 large bedrooms with private bathrooms, an additional bathroom for visitors, a large and well equipped traditional kitchen, office, TV-room, living room and dinning room. The building was completely restored in the last year to offer all the comforts expected in a contemporary home. It has radiant-heated floors powered by solar-panels, cable TV, wi-fi, dishwasher and laundry washer. The traditional kitchen features an large walk-in chimney with a functional brick oven, a semi-professional stove, full refrigerator and freezer and is fully equipped to cook a feast. The formal dinning room sits six guests.
It can very comfortably host 4 guests for a relaxing vacation, but it can also be the ideal workspace for a writer or scholar in a longer stay.
