Guestbook comments from the owner

'We spent 8 days with our 2 boys (1 and 4 years) in the house and had a fantastic time! The house itself is spacious, beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and well-equipped. Our children loved the garden with lots of space to run around and explore as well as the pool which is very child-friendly and can be watched from the living room or the beautiful, shady terrace. Our hosts were very helpful with lots of advice and good tips about the area. It was fun and relaxing just to be around the house and there were plenty of interesting touristy things and pretty towns within an easy drive. Would definitely go back!' Tanya and Avie, London, May 2008



'Villa absolutely superb. The best equipped we have ever been to. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners. Beautiful countryside and scenery within minutes walk. Lots of interesting trips & places of interest to see. Beneficial to have a car but not essential' Colin & Kath, June 2008

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Porto at 120 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Bilbao & Santander at 700 Kilometres Nearest Train : Valenca at 6 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : A3 at 3 Kilometres Nearest Beach : Moledo at 20 Kilometres Car: necessary

Coast/Beach:

This coast has miles of beach with golden sand. It is the Atlantic so there is no shortage of surf spots. The nearest beach is in Caminha about 25 km from the villa, which has a shelterd spot inside the mouth of the beautiful Minho river. The next beach is Moledo which is rather trendy and a few km away Ancora and Afife which are huge and wide-open. To the 'other side', in Spain, Baiona a beach inside of a bay is very popular. There are small bars and restaurants at all the beaches.

Travel:

BA, TAP, Easyjet & Ryanair fly to Porto airport which is an hour away by car. The motorway is quite empty and goes through the lovely countryside. Ryanair also fly to Santiago de Compostela in Spain which is the same distance from Vila Nova de Cerveira (on motorway). Bilbao and Santander ferry ports are 7hrs drive to the North.

Distances:

The villa is a few minutes by car from Vila Nova de Cerveira which is a very nice village, the historic centre and wonderful outdoor Saturday market. Valença (5 min) which is a historic market town with impressive medieval walls and Caminha with its cobbled streets, bars, cafes and restaurants is 20 min away. Viana do Castelo (30 min) and Ponte de Lima (15 min) are the largest local towns and both offer historical interest. Porto and Santiago de Compostela are 1 hour away by motorway.

Further Details:

A drive into Spain for shopping and sightseeing is very easy from the new bridge at Vila Nova de Cerveira. Porto and Vigo offers some astonishing shopping malls with all the international brands you could hope for under one roof. Of course Porto (1 hour away) is the second capital of Portugal that is famous for its wines, culture and historic sites. Nightlife is very good at beach places such as Caminha and Baiona, during summer. During the year Vigo (30 min away) as a vibrant nightlife.
