Holiday Rental House
The combination of a husband who's a renowned architect and wife who is a well established interior designer, provided the vision needed to transform this traditional Portuguese farm house into a wonderful dwelling that represents a 'fusion' of contemporary and traditional - it sounds easy to say it and to talk about it, but in reality it takes a special skill to produce this effect. Now this wonderful private holiday home has opened its doors for the discerning traveller to visit, stay, relax and 're-charge'; absorbing the wonderful countryside, the beaches, (The Award winning 'Praia Moledo' beach is only 12 minutes drive) the wonderful food and wine and of course the laid back and friendly culture from the locals.

Now this wonderful private holiday home has opened its doors for the discerning traveller to visit, stay, relax and 're-charge'; absorbing the wonderful countryside, the beaches, (The Award winning 'Praia Moledo' beach is only 12 minutes drive) the wonderful food and wine and of course the laid back and friendly culture from the locals. The house has a wonderful entrance with various interesting pieces of art and furniture. This opens into a HUGE living space with an informal lounge space ( great for kids to be in) - a more formal lounge and then the dining area. A very well equipped kitchen adjoins the living space and this leads out to the superb outdoor gardens. The rest of the house as you can see from the pictures has a 'horseshoe' shape with 3 bedrooms on each side facing into a central courtyard. There are 6 bedrooms in total - 2 doubles (both with private adjoining bathrooms) - 2 twin bedrooms ( also with private adjoining bathrooms) and finally a twin bedroom and a childrens' bedroom ( can sleep up to 5 kids in separate beds) - which share a large showerroom - with 2 shower cubicles. Outside the very mature and well tended gardens provide a wonderful outdoor space to enjoy the wonderful weather - a large pool with deck chairs and table - a sheltered al fresco dining area next to the kitchen and an outdoor barbecue for those wonderful home made holiday BBQs As you can see from the picture gallery there is plenty to do and the house is well positioned/located to use as a base to explore the North of Portugal. 5 minutes drive and you are on the main motorway which can take you into Galicia, Spain in 10 minutes or across to Braga, Ponte de Lima and even Porto is about 50 minutes away. There is a well stocked supermarket and bakery only 5 minutes away and the lovely historic town of Caminha is less than 10 minutes drive away. Don't miss the super weekly outdoor local vegetable, fruits and cured meats market along with the super fish market and of course the local crafts market! If you are looking for a quiet high quality holiday retreat, close enough to go out and explore the wonderful North of Portugal then this could the holiday home for you. Any questions please don't hesitate to ask. More
