About the property

Barca cabril montalegre - Peaceful Location, 2 Minutes Walk to the River, 5 Minutes driving to the Village,45 min to the city

Casa da Barca is a beautiful detached house, located in the National Park of Peneda Gerês with an unforgettable view of the river Cavado and surrounded by lush green mountains. Not far from the property are natural cascades. The house has 6 double bedrooms, each with their own in suite bathrooms and a new fully functional kitchen with modern appliances. The property is all in granite made in the old style . This property benefits of the very large esplanade which shares with the 2 bedroom house next door, owned by us. Same as the pool.

A beautiful retreat in an amazing part of the world.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 families, each with 2 adults and 3 kids. We wanted a relaxing place to have a holiday together....and this house was perfect in every way! The location is stunning, with views over the dam. The house has been beautifully renovated and had a fresh and clean feel. The kitchen is well equipt. The pool area is relaxing and kept the kids busy for hours. The owner also owns a mini-mercado 5 min drive away. There are stunning waterfalls and hikes just minutes drive away. Definitely want to go back! Highly recommended.

Best place in the world to relax

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and tidy! Everything around it is so nice and natural! The owners Manuel and Paula was very helpful and lovely! We visited 7 lagoas, Ponte da misarela, cascate of pincaes and lake of Barca! We had such a lovely dinner on Maria's restaurant fojo do lobo! We had a choice of taste a wild pig! Everything was so nice! We really recommend this to all my friends, I'm sure they will love it the same way us do!

Paradise on earth !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house after driving in the nature , eucalyptus trees , pines ... so lovely and then at the end of the little road it was amazing to see the big villa with beautiful manicured garden and pool ! Yet , it's far away from all so need a car , but if you are looking for peace , hearing owl at evening , and feeling one with the nature , than it's really for you !The house was very clean, with beautiful kitchen, big bedrooms with ensuite shower and toilet , a view from each to the nature , top of the bill : the owners ! So helpful , REALLY friendly and take time for you to feel good. Thanks to them we saw many beauties like ponte de Misarela , and the fantastic park called Lake of CIGNES close to Braga , this park is really worth a visit and it's open till 2 a clock in the morning ! Eaten in good restaurants and really enjoy every little place around Cabril , we are very sad to leave but will keep such a good memory , and Manuel and Paula will stay in our heart !

Fim de semana muito agradável...casa muito confortável e bonita...espaço enorme fora para conviver e as crianças poderem brincar...proprietário muito preocupado com a nossa estadia. Um muito obrigada a D.Ana sempre muito prestável...achamos só que na sala de estar deveria haver mais sofás ou pufs porque com grupos grandes só um é pouco para tanta gente...ficaria mais

confortável...

Muita linda a paisagem. Certamente a repetir...Obrigada
