Lagar Cottage (1 Bedroom, Sleeps 2/4)

The old wine making shed has been renovated to make the Lagar cottage. The huge stone tank where the grapes were trodden has been put outside on the patio and is being made into an attractive water feature. The old threshing floor can be seen nearby.

The cottage has one double bedroom and additional sleeping accommodation for two people in an alcove in the living room.

There are French windows opening onto a vine covered patio which is ideal for outdoor meals or just relaxing.

The kitchenette has a full sized gas oven and a 4 ringed hob, a fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and other smaller kitchen appliances.

There is a fully equipped bathroom with shower over the bath.

About the property


A 19th century farmhouse in the beautiful Minho area, restored to incorporate modern living standards whilst retaining many original features. Here can be found the real essence of Portugal where the only noise one is likely to hear, apart from the occasional car or the local churches chiming the quarter hours, are the farmyard sounds of chicken, sheep and cows. The farm can be rented as a single unit for a group of friends or separately, each house being independent and having a private terrace. There is a central laundry room and a large shared pool. The farm, midway between Ponte de Lima and Paredes de Coura, is well placed for sightseeing. Spanish Galicia is to the north, the Atlantic beaches to the west, the historic cities of Porto and Braga to the south and the national park of Peneda-Geres to the east. The area abounds in picturesque market towns with colourful street markets and tiny hill top shrines affording fantastic views. The local golf course is 25 mins away by car.

Pure heaven

  • 5 of 5

The Lagar cottage is set in a beautiful vine covered court yard and the pool has stunning views of the surrounding hills. The churches perched apon neighbouring hill tops sing to each other at various points in the day. If you want to venture, the cottage is close to the medieval town of Ponte de Lima and river pools of clear clean water. Beaches are also not far by the new fast road. Although the cottage fells very remote, the journey could not have been easier. We picked up a hire care at Porto airport and were at our destination in less than an hour. The cottage itself was clean, cool and well stocked, the owners kindly left basics so when we arrived we would not starve. This cottage only has 1 bed room but with two extra beds in an alcove we happily fitted a family of 4.

Owner's Response: Thank you Elizabeth for your kind review, as you say the cottages are set in beautiful surroundings, are well located for sight seeing and dips in mountain pools and rivers and although they seem remote, are in fact within an hour's drive from the airport. Our objective is to give guests the best possible holiday with the least possible hassle so we try to provide a snack or light meal for those arriving late or feeling too tired for a trip to the local supermarket. We really enjoyed seeing you and hope that you will visit us again in the not too distant future.
