description Description

This superb holiday villa, set in a privileged position, underwent a long and careful refurbishment aimed at letting the ancient character of the house together with the modern facilities required nowadays. The careful selection of the most sophisticated details (objects, furnishings, tableware…), and the installation of all possible comforts will ensure that a stay in this refined place is unforgettable.

Simple and easy to reach (only 1h10 minute drive from Porto international airport and 1 hour from Vigo airport - in Spain), the villa is in an absolutely central position in the unspoilt Minho region being only 7 km away from Paredes de Coura town centre, yet surrounded by quiet and privacy. The great view over the Coura river valley – where it is possible to fish trout and other fish – and Minho countryside with its Romanic parish churches and spectacular 16th Century villages can be reached within a 25 minute drive. This includes the villages of Ponte de Lima, Caminha, Valença, Arcos de Valdevez and the National Park Peneda Geres. The sandy beaches of Caminha (25 km) are excellent for families with children due to the number of activities available.

The property’s valuable equipment includes wood and terracotta flooring, pleasant air conditioning system throughout the house, turkish steam room to be used with aromatherapy oils. The two storey house consists of:
Lower floor : Open plan kitchen / living area boasts a large wooden table. It is very well appointed (fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, large hob and oven, blender/juicer, kettle, toaster, 2 coffee machines, wine glasses, all types of pans, etc.) and also includes a particularly pleasant fireplace for the colder seasons. In the living area you will find a satellite TV with DVD and home cinema. The new construction of the building comprises a reception area with a desk (ideal for those who need to catch up on some work) and guest shower room, turkish steam room for 2 people and a twin bedroom with ensuite bathroom. In order to help people with mobility problems, the ground floor has no steps and the ensuite bathroom of the twin bedroom has been specially built for wheelchair users - with enough space to move a wheelchair.
Upper floor : 4 double bedrooms of which 2 have double beds and the other 2 have twin beds. Each bedroom has an ensuite shower room.

Outside guests find an ample sunbathing terrace, lawns and mature gardens. The external sitting areas include a large covered comfortably furnished terrace, with dining table just outside the kitchen. Private salt water swimming pool, grass children's playground, grass sports area with football goals, volleyball and badminton net. The access from the car parking area is done through a slope of about 6% inclination all the way to the front of the villa. The swimming pool has built in steps making the access much easier than the aluminium ladders, and can be heated on request (previous reservation). The garden surrounding the house also enables access to secluded relaxation areas (with dedicated sunchairs and hammock), and barbecue area. The upper level of the property features a large sports area with 2 football goals, volleyball and badminton nets. The gorgeous view is also appreciated from the lovely swimming pool with hand-crafted granite edges. The sun, as a matter of fact, embraces the whole house, which faces south and is in the sunshine all day long: from dawn to the lovely sunsets. Comfortable loungers are scattered around the pool along with outside shower. The private salt water swimming pool is 10 x 4.5 metres and the depth is from 1 to 1.9 metres with built in full width steps at the shallow end.

edit_location Location - Area

Situated in a region that has many sites of great archaeological interest, Paredes de Coura was particularly important during the Wars of Restoration fought between Portugal and Spain in the seventeenth century.

In recent years, the town has begun to attract large crowds of young people in August, who are drawn here by the music festival held on the banks of the River Coura.
