About the property

Villa in Vila Nova de Cerveira, Costa Verde, Northern Portugal - Peaceful Location Near Minho River, Golf And Beaches, 5 Mins To Spain

The villa is in the most Northern part of Portugal, Minho, which is hilly and beautifully green. A place to get away from stressful life, to relax and regain energy. The private pool is large with big relaxation area and built-in BBQ. Luxury and cosy interiors with central heating and spacious exterior areas with high solar exposure make the villa a perfect place for holidays all year round. The local towns such as Vila Nova de Cerveira, Valença (fortified town), Caminha and Ponte de Lima are picturesque and interesting. Just a few minutes you can go from the river to coast, green countryside to historical towns, golf to surfing and to enjoy with excellent food and wine. Just by crossing the bridge you will be in Spain with a whole different culture to explore. It is a quiet area but has plenty of nice restaurants and bars nearby. The villa is about 20 minutes by car from a series of beaches and golf course. The Minho River is at walking distance from the property. Free Wifi internet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

'We spent 8 days with our 2 boys (1 and 4 years) in the house and had a fantastic time! The house itself is spacious, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and well-equipped. Our children loved the garden with lots of space to run around and explore as well as the pool which is very child-friendly and can be watched from the living room or the beautiful, shady terrace. Our hosts were very helpful with lots of advice and good tips about the area. It was fun and relaxing just to be around the house and there were plenty of interesting touristy things and pretty towns within an easy drive. Would definitely go back!' Tanya and Avie, London, May 2008

'Villa absolutely superb. The best equipped we have ever been to. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Beautiful countryside and scenery within minutes walk. Lots of interesting trips & places of interest to see. Beneficial to have a car but not essential' Colin & Kath, June 2008

This coast has miles of beach with golden sand. It is the Atlantic so there is no shortage of surf spots. The nearest beach is in Caminha about 25 km from the villa, which has a shelterd spot inside the mouth of the beautiful Minho river. The next beach is Moledo which is rather trendy and a few km away Ancora and Afife which are huge and wide-open. To the 'other side', in Spain, Baiona a beach inside of a bay is very popular. There are small bars and restaurants at all the beaches.


BA, TAP, Easyjet & Ryanair fly to Porto airport which is an hour away by car. The motorway is quite empty and goes through the lovely countryside. Ryanair also fly to Santiago de Compostela in Spain which is the same distance from Vila Nova de Cerveira (on motorway). Bilbao and Santander ferry ports are 7hrs drive to the North.


The villa is a few minutes by car from Vila Nova de Cerveira which is a very nice village, the historic centre and wonderful outdoor Saturday market. Valença (5 min) which is a historic market town with impressive medieval walls and Caminha with its cobbled streets, bars, cafes and restaurants is 20 min away. Viana do Castelo (30 min) and Ponte de Lima (15 min) are the largest local towns and both offer historical interest. Porto and Santiago de Compostela are 1 hour away by motorway.

Further Details:

A drive into Spain for shopping and sightseeing is very easy from the new bridge at Vila Nova de Cerveira. Porto and Vigo offers some astonishing shopping malls with all the international brands you could hope for under one roof. Of course Porto (1 hour away) is the second capital of Portugal that is famous for its wines, culture and historic sites. Nightlife is very good at beach places such as Caminha and Baiona, during summer. During the year Vigo (30 min away) as a vibrant nightlife.
