This is a charming and careful conversion of a traditional farmer worker's cottage situated alongside a tributary of the Neiva river which runs towards the long sandy beaches of Viana do Castelo. The interior has been comfortably furnished with a range of carefully chosen furnishings, creating a lovely atmosphere. The living room opens onto the pool area and barbecue terrace with table and chairs perfect for al-fresco meals.
Take a cooling dip in your own private pool, stroll about the lawned gardens as this is the perfect place to relax and unwind. There are various mature trees providing shaded area for dining al fresco or perhaps reading a book whilst enjoying a glass of the local Vinho Verde.
Within walking distance you will find a minimarket and a bar. The nearest village is only 1,200 metres away. A river beach can be found only 400 metres away from the villa where it is also possible to fish or simply follow the century old watermills route down the river.

I liked the lovely grounds, stunning views, charming location. The outdoor eating areas (we had multiple options) made for wonderful dinners under the stars. The kitchen was well equipped and the way the bedrooms were laid out, gave everyone privacy.
The owners were lovely and made us feel welcome and cared for. The house was spotless and we never had power or water issues. We loved the quiet setting and the ability to drive to a variety of charming sights and villages.
I was very pleased with Villanovo. They answered all my questions and were quick to respond. When we got lost going to the Villa to check in and Villanovo responded quickly, even though it was after hours. We would definitely use them again.
