An extremely well equipped luxury villa in a prime location, with breathtaking views, in the Peneda-Gerês National Park, UNESCO World Biosphere.
An extremely comfortable and incredibly well equipped holiday villa with private swimming pool, children’s playground, air conditioning, large lawns and pool house ideal for alfresco dining.
The towns of Ponte da Barca, Arcos de Valdevez, Ponte de Lima and the city of Braga are all a short drive away and become excellent day trips, considering the historical heritage, the healthy and tasty food and the typically warm welcoming of Northern Portugal.
An excellent conversion of a farming cottage which was once used by the locals for grain storage, however very little remains from the original construction. The owner has taken great care to provide some extras in order to create an extremely comfortable and incredibly well equipped holiday villa.
This luxurious house is located in a small village on the border of Portugal’s only National Park – the Peneda Geres – which has a spectacular scenery and a wide variety of flora and fauna. In addition to the private swimming pool, guests have a private playground area with a football goal and a basket hoop – a delight for children and adults.
The nearby village of Ponte da Barca has a lovely XV century parish church and an old town square, but the principal attraction is the fine arched bridge built in 1543.
