Fabulous designer house & pool in green landscape

  • 5 of 5

After a bit of trouble finding the house, solved by a phone call to Antonio who suggested using the Lat/Long coordinates in our GPS, we arrived at his beautiful modern villa and were welcomed by his whole family.

The house is beautifully designed and well maintained, and the surrounding garden and pool were ideally suited for our family of three children. The photos provided online gave us an accurate picture of the place - it was exactly as we expected.

We did think we had locked ourselves out of the house one day - the key wouldn't open the front door after we had closed it. After a bit of a panic we eventually found that there were two doors into the house at ground level - we had mistaken the main (left side) door for another window. I hope Antonio wasn't too stressed when I rang him up!

Everything we needed for our week-long stay was provided in the house, and we were able to do all our food shopping in a modern supermarket in the nearby town of Vila Verde.

We drove into the Geres national park a couple of times and admired the impressive landscapes.

One afternoon I took two of my daughters up to the top of one of the granite-topped hills near the villa so we could see the views across the area.

After a week of sunny weather we had one day of cloud, so we took the opportunity to visit the city of Braga, which is a lovely place, full of life and interesting places to see. We had a delicious meal in the restaurant near the centre of town.

We had never visited northern Portugal before, and found it to be full of friendly people, and set in a lush green granite landscape.

comfortabel huis met heerlijke tuin en privacy.

  • 5 of 5

Twee weken lang een fantastische vakantie gehad in goed onderhouden, schoon huis met alle comfort. Heerlijk zoutwater zwembad. Fijne tuin met alle rust en privacy. Mooie omgeving. Zeer aanbevelenswaard!

Noord Portugal heeft ons verrast, mooie stranden , interessante en cultuurrijke plaatsen. Na elk uitstapje was het weer heerlijk "thuis"komen.

Zijn met eigen auto in 3 dagen op ons gemak hier naartoe gereden en daarna

nog een 8-daagse Poussada reis ondernomen door heel Portugal.

Muito Boa Propriedade, Recomendo

  • 4 of 5

A casa é fantástica, muito bem dividida, espaçosa, muito bem equipada. onde não falta nada para a vivência diária.

Não há praticamente nada nas redondezas e por isso o sossego é absoluto. A piscina e o espaço verde disponivel são também muito bons, com muito espaço para as crianças brincarem.

Os proprietários são muito simpáticos e sempre disponiveis.

Recomendo vivamente para quem quer relaxar e passar uns dias em perfeito sossego.

Deixo apenas algumas sugestões aos proprietários, que no meu entender iriam aumentar ainda mais o grau de satisfação com esta propriedade:

- Aumentar o fluxo de água nos chuveiros das casas de banho.

- A colocação de um chuveiro perto da piscina.

- Ligar a iluminação da piscina.

- Transformar o R/C em salão de jogos.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

Wij, een gezin met 3 kinderen, verbleven 2 weken in deze moderne villa.

Het huis is werkelijk prachtig, zowel buiten als binnen. De indeling van het huis is heel doordacht, eigenaar is architect en dat merk je !

Ook de streek is prachtig ! We zijn verschillende keren naar de kust geweest, maar ook de steden Braga, Guimaraes, Porto, Viana do Castelo zijn vrij vlot te bereiken om een bezoekje te brengen.

Wij hebben ons hart verloren in Portugal en komen zeker terug !

The villa is located in the heart of Minho between Vila Verde and Ponte da Barca, a vast rural area dominated by nature.

It is an integrated area in a vast natural heritage, where you can enjoy the known Peneda-Geres National Park, the beautiful river beaches of Lima and Homem rivers, as well as proximity to the vast coastline maritima of Viana do Castelo.

The religious heritage consists of various chapels of Romanesque origin, integrated into the infuence area of ​​two thousand year old city of Braga, where we can appreciate the most important religious monuments of Portugal.

You can also visit the medieval core of the city of Guimarães, classified as World Cultural Heritage.

In terms of food we can find traditional restaurants Minho, where stands the famous cod and pica rice certificate on the ground.

During the summer there are constant minhotas festivals around the chapels, animated by the joyful sound of concertinas.
