Traditional stone farmhouse, with apartment covering the whole ground floor, with thick granite walls in the open plan kitchen/living room. The apartment has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a patio outside and a Netflix/Yoga room.
Opposite the farmhouse is the Pool House with large pool. It has spectacular views. The Pool House has 2 bedrooms, a double and twin beds, a great kitchen and a spectacular bathroom.There is a second bathroom below the pool.
Fresh bread is brought to the farm daily.

Die Unterkunft
Amazing views from the house. The pool is illuminated in the evenings. Both houses have wifi, BBQs, gardens. The apartment is large and characterful, the Pool House is modern and striking. They complement each other beautifully. Both have seating for up to 10 - so guests can eat together at either house.
Both have satellite TV, offering all the British channels and Portuguese TV too. There is Netflix, so no-one need be bored at night!
There is a restaurant and cafés near the house and the baker's van leaves off fresh bread rolls every morning (no extra charge). If anyone would like fish, the fish van can come here on a Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday. - perfect for BBQs (and the owners always give guests various bottles of vinho verde produced at the farm). Guests are also able to pick whatever fruit is in season - oranges, lemons, tangerines, kiwis in the winter; plums in the summer, and are given free range eggs when the hens are laying.
If you like to be healthy on holiday - it's possible to accompany Virginia on her daily dog walk - and explore the paths of the forest right behind the house (only when it's not too hot and not too wet!), go to the spa in Taipas to enjoy the indoor pool, Turkish baths, sauna, massage treatments (with hot water spray, hot stones, chocolate etc!). If you like cycling, it's possible to rent bikes at Ponte de Lima and follow the river - a beautiful cycle ride. Or, cycle along the old railway line from Guimarães to Fafe - stopping off at the railway station, now café (for coffee and croissants or coca cola and crisps - depending on the weather).
The old wine house at the house has been given a new look - and can be used as a party room or for Pilates/Yoga/Zumba. It's a beautiful room, with floor to ceiling glass sliding doors opening onto the front of the house, with vines overhead. If you're here on Saturady at 5pm you're welcome to join Virginia in her weekly yoga class. An excellent yoga teacher comes to the house - but the lesson is in Portuguese!!
If you follow the kiwi pergola you'll find steps leading down to the goldfish tank. A good place to stop off and read a novel, hidden away from sight.
What makes this place different is that there is accommodation for 10 but everyone has their space - the houses are only a stone's throw apart. Each has something to add to the equation - space and coolness in the apartment, a view and the pool right in front of the Pool House.
As both houses can be rented separately, they are independent of each other - and they have everything - down to their own BBQ, even their own pool when they're rented to two different groups.
This is a beautiful place and guests can just sit and enjoy the view or go for walks, buy bread from the baker and fish from the fish monger and put on the BBQ, or get out and about and see all the national treasures around - Bom Jesus and Guimarães and the Douro valley have all World Patrimony status. Braga, Citânia de Briteiros and Sameiro are only 10 minutes away - you can do a lot here or do little. Virginia will send you an updated list of activities and ideas of what there is to see and do in the area - before you arrive. So, no need to do too much homework in advance.
The house is in the mountains, with spectacular views but close (15 minutes) to Braga and Guimarães. The village of Longos, where the house is situated, has restaurants and cafés and a little mini-market. Taipas, 5 minutes away, has a market every Monday. It also has an 18C spa - offering the spa circuit, with steam room and sauna, massages etc. Braga has recently opened a beautiful municipal market, open every day from 6am except Sunday. It even has a wine and cheese stall!
The farm is 40 minutes from the seaside, so it's worth setting off to visit Apúlia, Ofir or Esposende. If your children like the idea of surf, there are 2 surf schools in Ofir.
This is the place to eat out - no need to worry you'll not find a little restaurant serving BBQ chicken and chips, roast pork or seabass - and the price won't dent your budget!
Most people come back here as there is so much to see and they want to do all the things they ran out of time for on the last visit!

Braga, Portugal

It's rare to find 2 houses on the same farm that are for holiday rental - both houses are unique. The apartment is large - beautifully decorated, with a patio outside the door of the living room, next to the BBQ. On a level below the house is the Pool house - overlooking the pool and with amazing views over the hills and mountains. the Pool House was built in 2018 and everything is new and has been carefully chosen, with no expense spared! The farm has 2 pools - the big one is exclusively for guests and the smaller one (at the far end of the orchard) is for the family - so everyone is happy!
The view is stunning - there is a forest behind the house leading to Sameiro and Bom Jesus, which has now qualified as World Heritage status.
We're near the spa town of Taipas (5 minutes away), so guests can come and be pampered or simply do a tour of some of the great restaurants in the area.
Not far from the house are Braga, Guimarães, the national park of Gerês, Citânia de Briteiros Celtic settlement, the seaside at Esposende, Porto, Ponte de Lima. Even the Douro Valley is do-able in a day or alternatively a visit to Aveiro.
Before guests come Virginia sends them an up to date list of places to visit when here. She always provides guests with afternoon tea on arrival.
The bread man comes in his van every day so you can choose what fresh bread you want for the day and the fish monger arrives in his van every Tuesday and Thursday - this only happens in the countryside! The quality of the bread and fish is excellent, and prices are very reasonable! Virginia buys the bread and this is included in the overall price.
This could be a healthy break - between the pool, Pilates, Zumba, woodland walks, the spa in Taipas, cycling and with 2 BBQs (and a baker and fish monger) you won't go hungry!
If you would like Pilates or Zumba while here - ask Virginia to contact the relevant teachers and she will book them in. This will be an additional cost - to pay the teacher concerned. No charge for the use of the Pilates room, where mats are provided.

Married, with 3 children. Love being outside, food, wine, going to the cinema/theatre/concerts. I like travelling and have been all over. I read a lot, watch TV, go to the café. I go to aqua aerobics on a regular basis, walk a fair bit and like to cycle. My motto is: do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Während deines Aufenthaltes

The owners live at the farmhouse. They have their own entrance at the back of the house and live on a different floor to guests - so everyone has their independence.
Virginia is happy to offer advice and tips during guests' stay.
