Casa do Javali (Quinta do Vedouro): Portugal Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 59147ha
Casa do Javali (which means wild boar) stands at the top of the estate overlooking the gardens and close to the pool. Upstairs, there is an open plan lounge and a modern fully equipped kitchen. Downstairs, there are two pleasant bedrooms and the bathroom. But it's outside that visitors tend to gather in the summer - on the veranda, in the patio below or enjoying the gardens and pool.
About the Property
4 bedrooms (sleeps 9) in 2 houses (4 and 5 respectively)
Beaches and Golf: The nearby river beaches on the River Lima provide warm, sheltered and safe bathing. Or head for the “Costa Verde”, with its many “Blue Flag” sandy beaches spread over an 80km stretch of Atlantic coastline. Here is a varied selection of family seaside resort, surf beaches, sandy, rocky, wide, discreet, busy, romantic beaches - you can go to a different one each day to suit your mood. Or you can cross the river to Spain for a change.
Quinta do Vedouro is a 15 minute drive from the best golf course in the region:
Ponte de Lima (15km), amidst a scenery of mountains, vineyards and fruit gardens, is a course typical of the Minho region. Par 71,6005m, including Portugal's longest hole at 622m (par 5).
There are other golf courses at Golf Ría de Vigo, Spain, Estela and Quinta da Barca (9 hole)
In the village and surrounding area: * Visit the Roman church in Bravães.
* Visit the historic towns of Ponte da Barca, Ponte de Lima, Paredes de Coura, Arcos de Valdevez, Vila Nova de Cerveira, Viana do Castelo or Braga – all within about 40km.
* Tour through the rugged unspoilt landscape of the Peneda-Gerês National Park - Quinta do Vedouro is right on the boundary.
* Wind your way through the tiny villages and narrow winding mountain lanes of Alto Minho, where people still live a rural life out of another era, and offer a glimpse of a hidden Portugal that makes it hard to believe this is 21st Century Europe.
* Take a trip to Spain – through Vigo via the spectacular University and pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela, up to La Coruña and the Bay of Biscay, or along the rocky Galician coastline.
* Go bargain hunting in one of the local markets – there’s one every day in one town or another.
* Go canoeing, horse riding, walking, fishing, climbing, hunting or some other outdoor activity.

Lying just on the edge of the Peneda-Gerês National Park, and between the attractive historic towns of Ponte de Lima and Ponte da Barca, the Quinta is ideally located for touring Alto Minho, which is steeped in history and full of tiny villages and rural by-ways. The beaches of the Costa Verde, and the cities of Porto, Braga, Viana do Castelo and Barcelos, and Vigo in Spain, are all within reasonable driving distance. There are two airports within 40 minutes’ drive and easy access to the northern Spanish province of Galicia.
In the village, there is a small shop just down the hill for basic provisions, a café, a restaurant and a “tasca”. Nearby in both Ponte da Barca and Ponte de Lima there are many good restaurants, and supermarkets and other shops, as well as a variety of tourist and cultural attractions.
