A magnificent stone portal, topped with granite a cross, forms the impressive entrance to this beautifully refurbished secular property, carefully restored by its owner, to whose family this farm has belonged for generations.
Two splendid separate houses, appealing to large groups or sharing families, are each furnished to exacting standards, one with two double bedrooms and two twins, and the other with one double bedroom and two twins, ideally sitting amidst colorful terraced gardens that are sprinkled with bright colorful flowerbeds, orange and olive trees. Large solid wooden French windows boast a delicious view across the pretty countryside that surrounds the nearby town of Ponte de Lima: a patchwork of green fields, tidy vineyards and a backdrop of mountains stretch out beyond the grounds. Down below, the placid Rio Trovela is well-known locally for its trout.
The traditional kitchen, with its stone flagged floor, stunning beamed ceiling and enormous original fireplace, has been converted to create an attractive dining room, whilst the living room, covered by pattern rugs, is so ample that it is home not only to an area of soft furnishings but also to a billiards table. Behind the main house, lies a private swimming- pool with Roman steps, surrounded by inviting lawns.
Supplies can be easily bought as this house is remarkably close to the delightful riverside town of Ponte de Lima – You may dash across a merry rural lane past open fields and vineyards into cafés, restaurants, and a variety of shops in only a few minutes. Unsurpassable sandy beaches that stretch north and south of Viana do Castelo are also quickly reached.
