Viana Do Castelo villa description

Every care has been taken with the restoration of this beautiful house (finished in 2012), and many of the original features have been retained, from the 'love seats' in the windows, to solid timber beams used as balustrades, and even dates from the 15th and 18th centuries carved into the stonework. But it's also very modern, and the facilities, style and decor are first class. Every room is spacious, and every care has been taken to ensure that visitors are comfortable. The main living areas are upstairs - two bedrooms, a bathroom and a large open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen. Downstairs there are two more bedrooms and another bathroom, and a games room. The gardens are laid to lawn and have great views towards the nearby hills.

In the garden, there's an 'above-ground' swimming pool measuring about 4 metres by 3 metres. The first of a whole coastline of beaches is also only 10 kilometers away (less than 15 minutes' drive) and in the village, within walking distance, there's Neiva Parque, a complex of adventure sports for all the family, from paint ball to archery, treasure hunts to obstacle courses, canoing to a forest (tree top) adventure course.

                                              In a great location for access to the beaches of the Costa Verde as well as the wild hills of the Gerês National Park and the historic towns and villages that are part of the Minho landscape. The Spanish border is close by, and there's also easy access to picturesque Porto (a World Heritage Site). The village is near to Viana do Castelo (the main historic port of the region), Ponte de Lima (the distinctive center of Minho tourism) and the historic cities of Barcelos and Braga, which are all easily reached within a short drive. Fragoso is an attractive, rural spot, and the villa is right next to the river and an ancient Roman bridge, on the outskirts of the market town of Barroselas. The beaches of the Costa Verde run along the whole coastline, and are safe and clean and vary varied - something to suit all tastes.
