description Description

Property nestles quietly on the slopes of the Serra de Santa Luzia, looking directly over to the Atlantic and so affording that rare combination of a sea view in one direction with a mountain backdrop in the other. The region is ideal for walkers wishing to explore the surrounding pine forests or for those who crave the exhilaration of bathing in natural waterfalls nearby. The Quinta is only 3 km from the lovely, historic town of Viana do Castelo and just 1km from Praia da Areosa, one of the many beautiful, white, sandy beaches so characteristic of this part of northern Portugal. The current owner, José Teixeira, can trace the history of his family and that of the Quinta back to the 16th century, when the main part of the house and the chapel were built by his ancestor Gonçalo Vilas Boas on his return from living in India.

The Quinta stands in four hectares of land which include as many as four gardens and a shared pool. José, his wife and their three sons & daughter live in the main house, while guests occupy the six pretty cottages in the grounds, converted from former farm buildings standing round a central courtyard. Each cottage is simply furnished and rustic in style with one or two personally chosen antiques dotted around to add to their charm.

There are two two
-bedroom cottages (T2), each of them comprising 2 twin rooms, both with en suite bathrooms, living room & kitchenette.  Sleeps 4-5 persons, breakfast included.

Guest have at their disposal iron & board on request, communal sitting room with TV, breakfast terrace, barbecue area, gardens, children's play house & small football pitch, swimming pool with magnificent sea view.

Viana do Castelo

Situated at the mouth of the river Lima, Viana do Castelo was founded in the thirteenth century by D. Afonso III, king of Portugal, who, in an attempt to gain popular support, decided that this place should be destined exclusively for the use of the common people and declared that the nobility could not settle there. This fertile valley had already been much appreciated by the Romans, who reached here quite easily but then drew back, as, on encountering the River Lima, they thought that they had discovered the mythological River Lethe, known as the river of Oblivion, since anyone who crossed it would inevitably lose their memory.

Viana do Castelo gained in importance during the period of the great Maritime Discoveries (in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries) primarily as a shipyard and seaport, but also as a source of the crews that manned the ships setting sail to discover unknown lands.

Today it enjoys a rich architectural heritage and its many monuments are best admired as a whole from the top of Monte de Santa Luzia, which provides a spectacular view over the mouth of the River Lima and the Atlantic Ocean.

Amongst the particular highlights of this region are its folklore, its brightly-coloured, typical costumes and the extremely popular religious festivals and other festivities, particularly those that are held in August in honour of Nossa Senhora da Agonia and are considered to be the most spectacular in the whole of Portugal.

Viana do Castelo also has a rich and varied local handicraft industry, with its ceramics (everyday pottery articles), embroidery and goldsmith's work being particularly sought after.


Cabedelo is the closest and better known Viana do Castelo beach, on the other side of the river Lima. Surrounded by a pine wood, you will find there everything you need, from restaurants, disco, bars and shopping to camping sites and apartments for rent.  There is a ferryboat to cross the river to town and back, also bus.

Carreço is one of the most beautiful beaches of Viana do Castelo. Dominated by the lighthouse of Montedor, Carreço is a blessing of nature, with its rocks over the sea, pinewoods, fields and village, all together. If you like nature, this is the beach to look for.
