Holiday Rental House
A stunning Portugese farmhouse on a secluded south-facing valley surrounded by vineyards, just 50 minutes drive from Porto in the Costa Verde region. This fully equipped property has been completely modernised and updated with underfloor heating, solar panels, double glazing and Wi-Fi. It has 4 double/twin en-suite bedrooms, two large reception rooms, modern kitchen and dining area and also a separate laundry room. Outside, it has its own 10 metre heated pool in a secured area, several terraces with both grassy and paved areas, and large outdoor eating area complete with barbeque. There's plenty to see in the area with many excellent good value restaurants, however you may prefer to just relax and enjoy this idyllic location with a glass of the local Vinho Verde wine....A stunning Portugese farmhouse on a secluded south-facing valley surrounded by vineyards, just 50 minutes drive from Porto in the Costa Verde region.

About the neighbourhood
The local town of Amarante is steeped in history and also known for its beautiful landscape, friendly people, rich traditions and architecture marked with granite and schist. Sitting on the Tamega river it has many beautiful cafes and inexpensive restaurants as well as a large market. This is a great area to relax and enjoy the local Vinho Verde wine but for the more energetic there is also outdoor activities like swimming, walking, golf, fishing or adventure sports like canoeing and mountain biking. There's even a local water park. Essentially there is plenty for everyone
How to get there
The nearest airport is Porto which is just 50 minutes away by motorway.
