Caminha farmhouse description

The Quinta is grouped around a central building with a communal open plan living area, with kitchen and open fireplace, TV lounge and dining area, and patio with barbecue and more dining facilities, a swimming pool and terraced gardens. The bedrooms are in two blocks of terraced cottages, with a total of 8 suites, each with bathroom, kitchenette and sitting area. While it's ideal for a large group of family or friends, it's also very suitable for couples or small family groups using one of more of the self-contained, independent cottages, and sharing the communal facilities such as the pool and barbecue area.

The Quinta was restored and rebuilt in 2012, using traditional materials, original where possible, and has many imaginative architectural features, such as the re-use of tree stumps and boughs as structural supports. The accommodation is 'basic' in some senses, if that's a fitting description of a style that is reminiscent of traditional Portuguese village life, but modern amenities such as microwave ovens, hair-dryers, good quality bathrooms and free wi-fi internet access have brought that style completely up to date. A stay here will be comfortable, but always with the feeling that you are experiencing an old, traditional lifestyle.

Three of the cottages are on two levels, but there is also provision for access for people with disabilities, including wheelchair users.

Some of the cottages are able to accommodate additional children's beds in novel places (such as a 'mezzanine' on top of the bathroom!).

                              Located in the quiet village of Sapardos, from here it's very easy to get to a great variety of towns, natural features and other popular tourism spots. Ponte de Lima (Portugal's oldest town), Paredes de Coura, the fortified town of Valença, Vila Nova de Cerveira, Viana do Castelo, Arcos de Valdevez, Caminha, Ponte de Barca, Monção, Melgaço and the cathedral city of Braga are all within easy reach. Tui, Vigo and Santiago de Compostela in Spain are easily accessed. World Heritage Porto, with its international airport, is less than an hour away by direct motorway. The beaches of the Costa Verde and the rugged landscape of the Peneda-Gerês National Park are a short drive away. The Rivers Minho, Lima and Coura offer further attractions. For those interested in archaeology, the Iron Age settlement of Cossourada is within walking distance, and there are plenty of Roman remains in the district. The village itself has cafés and a small grocery shop within a short walk from the house.
