Located in the sleepy village of Anha, guests choosing Casa Beco are just five minutes drive from the beach and ten minutes from the historic centre of Viana do Castelo.

The entire northwestern province of Portugal is known as the Minho. The Minho boasts sensational picture postcard landscapes with heavenly river scenes, high mountains, rolling vineyards, stunning historic towns, dramatic Atlantic beaches, mysterious archaeological sites and ancient religious monuments. The Minho hosts many fabulous events including Viana do Castelo’s carnival and Barcelos’ bustling weekly market which is a cross between a medieval fair and a farmer’s market. In central Minho, the Lima River idles through a succession of pretty towns with glorious scenery starting at Viana do Castelo. The lush, picturesque Lima valley is waiting to be explored. It gives way to the mountains of Portugal’s only national park, the Parque Nacional da Peneda-Geres. Viana do Castelo is a fabulous gateway to all of this, sitting beautifully next to the Lima River. This enchanting city is north of Porto and close to the border with Spain’s Galicia. It is blessed with an appealing medieval centre, an attractive riverfront and gorgeous beaches. Its old quarter showcases narrow lanes and leafy boulevards brimming with Manueline manors and Rococo palaces. Guests staying at Casa Beco enjoy fabulous days on the beach, trips to beautiful towns and cities, river adventures on the Rio Lima estuary and countryside jaunts in the lower Lima valley. As well as boasting its jewel Viana do Castelo, the Costa Verde enjoys amazing beaches including Praia da Amorosa, Praia da Belinho and Praia do Cabadelo which are all very close to Casa Beco.

Casa Beco enjoys a very quiet location with parking in front of the house. It is surrounded by a lawned garden. The living room is very attractive. One part of it enjoys a double height ceiling aspect making it very light and airy. A feature fireplace offers warmth on chilly evenings. The room offers a comfy sofa and chairs, a television and doors that open onto a spacious balcony, perfect for alfresco dining or relaxing in the shade. A spiral staircase leads upstairs to the bedrooms. The very generous, immaculate kitchen will delight the chef in your group with its excellent supply of appliances. The kitchen is modern with wooden cabinetry and a grey worksurface and splashback. Guests can cook up a storm here and dine on the country table and chairs in the kitchen.

The three bedrooms all enjoy lovely wooden floors, dazzling white walls like the living space and comfy beds. Two of the rooms offer double beds and the other has twins. The rooms have modern, open wardrobes and one enjoys terrace access. Guests share two family bathrooms, the pink one with the bath and overhead shower and the green shower room. Both are well-maintained.

Casa Beco offers a wonderful alternative to the hotels and apartments along the coast. To be just a few minutes away yet enjoy a delightful garden and spacious accommodation is just great!

Casa Beco enjoys a wonderful countryside location within five minutes drive of some of the amazing Costa Verde beaches including Praia da Amorosa, Praia da Belinho and Praia do Cabadelo. Cabadelo is fantastic for surfing, windsurfing and body boarding. Lying just to the south of the Lima River, the beach is very popular with the residents of Viano do Castelo as well as tourists. Like most of the other Costa Verde beaches, the beach is surrounded by fabulous dunes and a pine forest. It boasts the most amazing sunsets when the sky changes to wonderful shades of orange, pink and purple. There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants surrounding the beach and in Cabadelo.

The stunning city of Viana do Castelo is on the opposite side of the Lima River, only ten minutes from the villa. Its pearly white, magnificent Santa Luzia Church sits high on the hilltop overlooking the city. It is very appealing to those who appreciate Romanesque-Byzantine architecture. Entrance is free and you can visit using the city’s funicular transport. The sanctuary was completed in 1943 and is one of the most visited places in the city. The city offers a unique cultural and historical diversity. With the sea in sight and bathed in gold, Viana do Castelo never disappoints. Viana do Castelo’s compact historic centre boasts extravagant religious buildings, delightful cafes, elegant plazas and narrow shopping streets which open onto the banks of the Rio Lima. Many of the bars and restaurants are found in the Praca da Republica along with many regional handicrafts. The architecture of the surrounding buildings looks like a castle. In August, the city hosts The Pilgrimage of Nossa Senhora da Agonia which celebrates the religious devotion of the residents of the city. The festival dates back to 1772 and in 2013 received the Declaration of Interest for Tourism. The highlight is the Desfile da Mordomia where more than five hundred women parade while wearing the traditional costume of the city and several pieces of family gold. The parade is a moment of union, enthusiasm and joy.

Spectacular landscapes surround Viana do Castelo and Cabadelo, brimming with waterfalls, pine forests, slow flowing rivers, wild beaches and nature trails. It is a farming region where the famous ‘vinho verde’ is produced. In Serra d’Arga you will find the Pincho Waterfall, bathed by the Ancora River. It is a very popular spot. Also in Serra d’Arga is Poco Negro where the sun only shines between 11am and 2.30pm. At the end of the 2km walk, visitors can take a dip in the natural pool.

Braga is regarded as one the main religious centres of Portugal, with the oldest cathedral and many Gothic churches. Every hour you will hear a cocophony of different church bells ringing out! It is the third largest city of Portugal and is a joy to explore. Braga is an enthralling university city and the setting for Bom Jesus do Monte, a fine monument. The historic centre is fully pedestrianised. There are pretty city gardens, charming plazas and busy shopping streets.

Ponte de Lima is one of the most characterful and picturesque towns of Northern Portugal, on the southern banks of the Lima River. The location has been the main river crossing since the Romans constructed a bridge in 1AD. There is a delightful mix of ancient houses, grand religious buildings and pretty plazas. There are a number of interesting museums as well as colourful flower gardens and stunning natural scenery all around. The Ponte do Lima is an excellent centre for adventure activities such as the Ecovia cycling route, kayaking along the Lima River, mountain biking or hiking in the Serra D’Arga or birdwatching in the Lagoas de Bertiandos. You can river bathe in Labruja.

You may also feel like heading north to the Minho River. On the north side of the river, Tui, in Galicia, is wonderful. It boasts a beautiful historic centre and an excellent range of gourmet dining as well as excellent shops. Tui is located south of the Pontevedra province and sits opposite the Portuguese town of Valenca. The towns are connected by a nineteenth century bridge. Valenca do Minho is located on the hillside overlooking the left bank of the Minho and on the main road that links the Spanish Santiago de Compostela with Porto. Tourists flock to the town to buy embroidered tablecloths and sheets, the speciality of the town. It is definitely worth the trip!

ABOUT MINHO

The areas of Minho extend from the Spanish border in the north, south to Porto and east to the mountains of Vila Real. It is a green and fertile area of rolling hills encompassing the great rivers Minho, Lima and Douro, and the National Park of Peneda Geres. The countryside of the region is typified by long, sandy beaches bordered by pine woods, picturesque villages nestling among vine-covered hills, and historic towns such as Amarante, Guimaraes, Barcelos, Ponte de Lima, and Viana do Castelo.

The area encompasses a range of postcard-worthy landscapes and features that could almost be Portugal in microcosm: dreamy river scenes, high mountains, rolling vineyards, beautiful historic towns, dramatic Atlantic beaches, ancient religious foundations and mysterious archaeological sites.

Then there's the bold, sharp and fruity Vinho Verde to consider. This young wine is fashioned from the fruit of kilometres of vineyards that wind along rivers, over foothills and into Minho mountain villages.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Minho, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!
