Amazing 5 bedroom villa, within easy reach of the fishing village of Vila Praia de Ancora , swimming pool, garden, terraces with Superb ocean views

The Home

Fabulous villa with private swimming pool and extensive grounds commanding panoramic uninterrupted ocean views over the surrounding countryside. This ancient and beautiful stone farmhouse, set on two levels, can sleep up to 12 persons in five spacious bedrooms with five bathrooms. Commanding excellent views over the valley, this luxury villa offers spacious and very comfortable accommodation.

Set in the beautiful Minho region, an oasis of wild beauty that has kept itself intact over the centuries, within easy reach of the fishing village of Vila Praia de Ancora (and several excellent beach front restaurants) and the fortified border town of Caminha (only 10 minutes away), with its palaces and churches and good choice of shopping, bars, etc.

From the castles and villages that tell of their ancient cultural heritage and traditions, to the boundless expanse of vineyard farms, green hills, sandy beaches, limpid rivers and silver lakes, this is a superb region full of sightseeing and cultural opportunities.


Ground floor

Sitting room with fireplace and doors opening onto the pool area. Steps up to upper floor.

Upper floor

Dining room and spacious sitting area. Large well-equipped kitchen with breakfast table, oven and hob, fridge / freezer, dishwasher and microwave. Master double bedroom with open fireplace and ensuite bathroom. 2 further double bedrooms each with an ensuite shower. Twin bedroom with ensuite shower room. Library with desk and internet access (wifi).


Adjacent to the main house there is a charming cottage with an ensuite twin bedroom and utility room with washing machine.


A beautiful stone-walled immaculate garden with lawns, mature trees and excellent uninterrupted views over the valley to the ocean. Large private swimming pool surrounded by a sun decking terrace. Barbecue area ideal for alfresco dining. Covered car parking.


Caminha (15 kms away) has a daily ferry-boat linking the two banks of the river (Portugal and Spain). Standing on a tiny island in the middle of the estuary are the ruins of the fort of Ínsua, built to defend the entrance to the river in the fifteenth century. But this region lives from much more than just its past. Vilar de Mouros, a picturesque spot in the most beautiful countryside, roughly 6 km to the north of Caminha, is the setting for a highly popular festival of modern music, held every August and the first of its kind ever to be organised in Portugal.

The sands of Vila Praia de Âncora (6.5kms away) extend from the fishing port over to the Âncora river. Bathers tend to congregate more on the area adjoining the Avenida Marginal coast road, where the waters are calmer and access is easier. The southern area, accessible to walkers only over a wooden walkway, contains practically always deserted spaces, surrounded by protected sand dunes. Nearby you will also have the opportunity to experiences some surfing beaches where lessons are available.

Serra de Arga hills (within a 10 minute drive), an attractive natural environment, features some good walking tours and offers good possibilities for various water sports. The 400 metres of altitude provide unique views over the Lima Valley, the river and the ocean in the distance. This wonderful landscape - where signs of old ox-carts can be seen - is also a paradise for wildlife where rare species can be found such as wild horses.

Les jardins magnifiques
Intérieure de la maison rudimentaire, cafetière des années 20 pas de barbecue, coin repas extérieure derrière la maison éloignée de la piscine et peu jolie, télé uniquement anglaise ...
