Beautiful and spacious villa ideally placed breathtaking Beautiful Landscape garden of 1000 m2. crystalline river at 5 min walking along our fields
Located in the Minho region, authenticity guaranteed , off the beaten track. The real Portugal.
Dear customers ,
We rent our beautiful villa surrounded by a large garden (1000 m2) with flowers and trimmed with fruit trees.
This is a vacation property, we are original Portuguese immigrants in France.
This is a home built after the war in the tradition of the Minho region in the far north of Portugal, 30 km from Spain.
Built in granite, fresh in summer, spacious enjoying a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains.
The house is equipped with everything you need (linens, towels, washing machine, kitchen etc.).
As you can see from the photos, the house is on 2 levels
We rent the part of the first floor completely independent of the ground floor.
No common areas.
The ground floor part of the house is inhabited by my retired parents who divide their time between France and Portugal.
It is they who will welcome you on arrival.
Also note just 5 min walking through our fields flows a river of transparent water suitable for swimming;
Its access is done directly from our fields bordering the house . 5 minutes walking .
Recently the municipality has developed an 50 KM trail to ride
walk or bike along the river and share Sistello 10 KM upstream and reaches the town of Arcos de Valdevez then continuously until Viana do Castello on the edge of the Atlantic. Always beautiful ballad bike along the rivers!
In the village center Aspra, you will find a grocery, a Bar and a restaurant.
A 15 min drive is the quiet and lovely town of Arcos de Valdevez where you will find everything you need (supermarket, local market, bank, hospital, pharmacy, cinema, restaurants, car rental, tourist information etc).
Our house is located in the Minho region, region with breathtaking scenery (mountains, terraced fields, eucalyptus forests, gorges, rivers) wedged between Spain and the ocean.
Here mass tourism has not yet happened and better!
Far from the crowded beaches of the Algarve, is an unspoilt region as its natural park of Geres.
This is the authentic Portugal, off the beaten track . Here time in traditional mountain villages seem stuck.
Guests can also enjoy the local production of fruits, vegetables,
ham, chorizo, vinho verde ....
If you want to discover historic cities ( museum , castles , art galleries ,monuments ) you can visit Moncao, Ponte de Lima, Viana do Castello, Caminhia, Braga, Guimaraes, Porto and Vigo (Spain) all this places are All these towns and cities are within a 1 hour drive .
Also since 20 years one of the most important in Portugal rock international festival occur at Paredes de Coura . The first time i saw Ben Harpper . ( 30minites from our Villa )
For those who prefer walking, swimming, riding , biking , you'll discover many beautiful areas to explore. Rivers lost in the mountains, waterfalls, countless hiking trails etc ...
During the month of July and August countless traditional festivals take place: religious processions, traditional music and dance,
Clearly, this is one of the most beautiful and authentic areas of Portugal.
Our house is in the heart of this natural paradise and makes it easy to discover this region.
I myself have travelled Burma, Indonesia, Brazil, Cambodia,
Madagascar, Mali, Kenya, Thailand, Malaysia, Chad, Congo, Gabon
Laos, China , Russia, etc .. and if like me you love the authenticity of people, nature, the beautiful landscapes, off the beaten track then you will love our nice house and its extraordinary location.
