The property is ideally located equally for relaxing in the sun by the pool or for exploring the area's beautiful scenery and the rich cultural heritage of Northern Portugal. There are 2 double bedrooms, one further bedroom with twin beds, a lounge with a sofabed, a fully equipped modern bathroom, a further separate WC and a newly furbished kitchen. There is a small garden at the front and a larger garden to the rear of the property with lawns, flowers and fruit trees as well as a swimming pool. The property has air-conditioning/heating in the bedrooms and the lounge, with heating also available in the bathroom.
I am a retired teacher and artist and I have lived in Portugal over half of my life! I grew up in Hertfordshire but came out here as a teacher in 1979. I grew to love Portugal, and though I returned to the UK as a Head Teacher for a number of years, I simply missed this sunny land with deep blue skies and hospitable people. Since I retired, I have discovered two passions - travelling, and painting. I spend my days in my studio either painting or teaching art to groups of people from all over the world, mainly in the winter months. I travel as much as possible, especially to India, which is my second home! I try to get ideas from my travels, and my own experiences, to apply to my own villa, to ensure you have a super holiday!
Linda Chaves purchased this house in 2002
It's a lovely house with a super garden and a lovely outlook to the rear. It's great for chilling out by the pool, or for touring some of the fascinating historic towns all very easily accessible. My main aim is to make my guests feel at home - that everything is clean, bright, comfortable and up to date, so guests feel relaxed as soon as they arrive. I love meeting people, but I am happy to keep a low profile if people prefer privacy.
I bought the property originally because of the lovely view to the rear, the magical combination of being on the edge of a town, yet with a unique rural aspect. I love having facilities, access and services close by, hard working Portuguese families as my neighbours, and that gorgeous feeling of being somewhere way off the usual tourist track...I believe I am still to this day 'the only British woman in Lousada"!!!!

My friend and I enjoyed our stay in Linda's villa. The house is very comfortable and well equipped and Linda could not have been a more helpful hostess - unobtrusive but always on hand to help out when needed. House very well situated for trips in teh area and the large red folder gives directions and suggestions about where to go.We had the most amazing weather and the lure of the sunbed and pool proved hard to resist. Thanks Linda for making our stay so enjoyable.
My friend and I had a wonderful time - house very well presented and comfortable. Linda could not have been more helpful - she was friendly and unobtrusive yet always on hand when needed. We enjoyed fantastic weather and the pool was perfect for cooling off. The house is very well placed for trips out and about and Linda's folder including directions was invaluable. Thanks for a great time Linda.
