Vila Nova de Famalicao chateau / country house description
Only 30 minutes from Oporto airport this imposing large impressive Manor House complete with its own tower and roof top terrace dates back to the French Revolution in Portugal.
Whilst all the rooms have been beautifully preserved and reconditioned to keep that authentic feel of history - unusually - for such a property we can provide air con throughout! All the bedrooms have ensuite. There are beautiful gardens with a good size pool and stunning countryside views awaiting you.
A perfect place to chill out and get away from it all but strategically well placed to access a range of amemities and pass times for all the family.
When you are here we can talk you through all the options - a sort of 'mini-concierge' service if you will.
Aqua parks for the kids - 10 minutes away Beaches - 25 minutes away River and lakes all 10-15 minutes away Center of historic town with ancient monuments, bridges and cathedrals all 5 minutes away Great restaurants and cafes - at ridiculously cheap prices - all 5-15 minutes away depending on your tastes
So all in all a superb location offering the best of everything - the superb large holiday home in the North of Portugal is well within most people's modest budgets at only £2500 per week - again reflecting the key difference that the North of Portugal has to offer - you can 'live like a King' and 'Eat like a King' on half the cost of the somewhat over priced and over populated Algarve.
I've lived all over Portugal including Lisbon and the Algarve and the North has the most to offer and the myth about the weather not being great is indeed a myth. If you enjoy golf - imagine being able to book a Tee Off time for 12 noon and being able to play in 24-29 degrees during the summer and not having to fight for a 6 am tee off time because it's too hot to play at 11am in the Algarve! AND the cost of a round of golf is half the price - half as crowded and just as much fun!
