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.
Magnificent entrance lobby/hall with contemporary spiral staircase.
Formal Lounge - Stunning Sofas made with high quality materials. Lovely pieces of furniture, paintings, pictures and lamps with a center piece fireplace - all set in a granite wall setting. Simply beautiful - serene and peaceful - double aspect windows looking directly out on to the views of the river!
Seats 12 people comfortably. There is a TV and Wi-Fi here.
Master Bedroom complete with King Size Bed - Double Aspect windows with views of the river. Spacious ensuite bathroom with large bath and shower.
1.6m double bed with en suite shower room - veranda with amazing views
1.7m double bed with en suite bathroom and shower. Balcony with views
1.7m Double bed with en suite shower room
All bedrooms on this floor are spacious and nicely appointed as you would expect. They offer wonderful light airy, serene views of the river.
Lower Ground Floor
Vast Living space incorporating 4 keys areas.
1) Card table and chairs - for a quiet game of poker or gin/rummy
2) Main lounge area facing the huge granite fireplace
3) Large dining table with panoramic views onto the river and beyond
4) Reading area - comfy single chairs with armrests perfect to sit and do some holiday reading
The room has marvelous floor to ceiling panoramic sliding doors giving breathtaking views out to the river
See pics for a better idea. Essentially there is:
Lounge seating area with wonderful sofas in front of a magnificent hand crafted granite fireplace.
A substantial dining table seating up to 20 people ( can be reduced in size to make it more intimate). This situated along the length of the sliding doors and in the summer with doors open you look straight out into the water.......it's truly wonderful!
There's an informal seating area in the corner of this vast 'salon' - great to sit quietly and read.
Lastly there is an occasional table and chairs - ideal to sit and have a game of cards.
Through from here is a wonderful kitchen - perfect for catering for the family guests - OR - if you are having a function it is ideal to cope a large number of dining guests.
There is a single bedroom with ensuite bathroom here - perfect for a nanny or simply as an over spill for a single guest.
There is a new private space which has been dedicated for on site massage and beauty treatments. We can arrange for in house treatments to be carried out in the comfort of your own holiday home.
The kitchen and large lounge salon area both lead out directly to the terraced gardens on the edge of the river.
2 Further Bedrooms' - These are smaller than the Ground floor bedrooms - BUT - still a very good size!
Both are ensuite - 1 has a bath/shower and the other has a shower.
Both have French Doors leading outside to give amazing views from such an elevated position.
Simply an adorable place to be! Manicured gardens on a corner plot encompassed by wrought iron railings right on the VERY edge of the river.......sit drink, eat rest and watch the world sail buy on this idyllic spot.
There is a decent sized pool with plenty of outdoor seating and a bbq. The pool measure 10x5m and measures 2m at the deep end. There is a shower outside to wash.

Amazing Location - Great Value for Money
Porto and the North of Portugal has been voted the must go to destination for 2013 and we can see why. The house was amazing - spacious well appointed and the location next the river was just fabulous. We ate out every night for a fraction of what it cost us last year in the Algarve.......thanks to Fernando Ze and Celestina for look after us all
