A wonderful blend of traditional architecture with modern luxury and designs, this villa offers exclusive access to a 17th century castle with a superb contemporary makeover, amidst beautiful views across the nearby mountains!
On the ground floor there is a cosy living room, with old timber beams stretching across the ceiling and stone interior walls, as well as a simple fireplace on one wall. There is one bedroom with ensuite and a second bathroom on this floor. The fully-equipped kitchen is found on the first-floor, alongside a brilliantly formal dining room that offers guests the opportunity to dine like royalty, among the banners and antique furniture of years past, under the classical chandelier and wood-panelled ceiling! This magnificent room has direct access to the first-floor balcony which provides a breath-taking vantage point for the stunning mountains, exquisite gardens and amazing private pool that surround the villa.
Each of the eight bedrooms holds a unique and arresting charm – from the elaborate gothic bedframes to the stone archways and internal window frames, the character of this 17th century castle is pleasingly apparent in every room! Half of the rooms enjoy access to either the delightful gardens or else a gorgeous balcony overlooking the flourishing grounds below, complete with plenty of small tables and chairs for enjoying your fresh coffee in the morning sun, while all bar one has a fantastic ensuite bathroom. There are eight bathrooms in total, and all of them demonstrate the same level of care and attention to detail.
With all this splendour within, it is hard to imagine a garden that can match this level of beauty. But the 15 acres of mature forest and manicured lawns that envelop the castle and are exclusively yours to enjoy. Water features, quaint terraces and even tennis courts are enveloped in meadows of wild flowers, meaning you might find them even more romantic than the home itself! The attractive private pool sits directly in front of the house and is surrounded by an array of sun loungers that invite you to spend an hour or two lazing in the Iberian sunshine.
If at any point you want to seek out civilisation, just 10 minutes away is the picturesque town of Ponte de Lima.
