Vila Nova de Famalicao villa description

Dating back to the 18th Century this handsome villa is on the rivers edge in an elevated position commanding views up the river inland and down the river to the sea.

You are walking distance to a restaurant, cafe, golf club and driving range. However you are NOT part of a golf complex etc.

You are completely separate and not connected in any way to the club. However we find its a useful facility to have as it has a decent quality restaurant open to non members.

The interior furnishings are simply superb and of the highest standards including many Louis XIV pieces.

This is an exception property and you will find it very rare to rent something of this quality and commanding such a stunning location.
