Snuggled in the heart of the stunning Minho region of northern Portugal, the villa is a delightful, affectionately restored 17th-century farmhouse perfect for groups of family or friends looking for a rural hideaway.
As you enter the home, you are welcomed with an embrace from the roomy living room. This is indeed the heart of the house, with a comfortable seating area and direct access to the charming garden beyond – throw open the doors and allow the fresh air to breathe life into the room as you enjoy a glass of wine or some local snacks over a good conversation.
The dining area, at the far end of the room, even has an open fireplace, ensuring that you can enjoy a refreshing and pleasant meal at the dining table on the colder nights, with only the sounds of the crackling fire and the gentle aroma of smouldering firewood.
A second, more casual living room also has an open fireplace by the TV so you can curl up in the warmth in front of a film after a long day exploring. The contemporary, fitted kitchen offers a roomy area for several cooks to get involved in meal preparation, and this too has direct access to the garden.
With five spectacular bedrooms, four double and one twin, this villa is an superb choice for an active group of friends who enjoy the outdoors and enchanting countryside to spend a week or more enveloped in nature.
Stylish four posters and rural stone interior walls create a classic attraction. All five rooms enjoy terrific ensuite facilities and are bright and airy. Four of the places, including the twin room, are on the first floor, while the fifth room enjoys the entire second floor to itself!
The grounds are as captivating as they are scenic, with magnificently landscaped lawns, flowerbeds and water features, preserving many of the original architectural details.
Private tennis courts offer the chance for a little healthy competition to spark among the group, while the surrounding forests of oak and chestnut trees create the ideal environment for sharing special moments with friends and family, among the rich, inspiring natural landscape.
At 7.6km from the nearest town, you’re indeed in the heart of the country, able to enjoy the total tranquility and serenity of nature! For the ultimate respite, lounge by the tranquil infinity pool in one of the comfortable beds sipping a glass of the local wine. With a changing room, WC and shower alongside, the pool has everything you need for an afternoon of bliss!
