Pool Townhouse/Apartment Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Casa Cabadelo is a delightful two bedroom duplex apartment right next to the sensational, glistening sands of Cabadelo Beach. The apartment is ideal for a small family that wants to spend days on the beach but also wants to visit the wonderful towns and cities of the glorious Minho. It would be equally ideal for two couples.

Cabadelo Beach is incredible, renowned among kitesurfers for its thrilling surf and one of the most popular beaches for families for its fine sand. There is a ferry boat just 200 metres from the apartment that takes you over to the fabulous historic city of Viana do Castelo. Anyone picking Casa Cabadelo can easily explore the whole of the Minho. The apartment comes with a garage space though you could also choose not to drive when staying here. 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 Cabadelo 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.

Casa Cabadelo is located just 200 metres from Cabadelo’s marvellous beach. It is set in a small complex that offers access to a communal swimming pool, tennis court, gym and spa for an additional fee. There are good restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and beauty services close by. The duplex apartment offers sea views from all of the windows and the balcony so if you are with small children who need to go to bed, you can enjoy a delicious chilled glass of wine on the balcony watching the sun go down.

The living space is open plan in design with a fully equipped kitchen on one side of the room, a dining table and chairs in the centre and comfy chairs and upholstered stools on the other side. Two doors open to the balcony, a very sunny spot where you can enjoy the sea and river views.

The two bedrooms offer comfy double beds, large picture windows to enjoy the views and plenty of cupboard space for your holiday wardrobes. Guests share the bathroom and there is an additional toilet. If you do have a car, the garage space is very handy and there is an elevator to the apartment. Casa Cabadelo might not be the snazziest apartment ever but it does enjoy a fabulous location and is very comfortable. There are so many attractions in this astonishing area, you are not likely to be in the apartment much anyway!

What you should know…

  • This delightful apartment is within easy reach of the Spanish border and the amazing city of Porto
  • Casa Cabadelo is an apartment rather than a villa. Although there is a balcony that offers wonderful sea and river views, the outside space is very limited. The expansive beach is very close though!
  • Please let us know if we can help arrange watersports, activity sessions or anything else that might make your holiday even better. The hosts of this villa are very happy to assist
  • The apartment comes with a very handy garage space

Casa Cabadelo enjoys a fabulous location, just minutes for the gorgeous Cabadelo Beach. It is fantastic for surfing and enjoying the waves as well as playing in the sand. Lying to the south of the Lima River, the beach is very popular with the residents of Viano do Castelo as well as tourists. The beach is surrounded by dunes and a pine forest. The beach is brilliant for surfing, windsurfing and body boarding. There are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants surrounding the beach and in the town.

Just north of the river is the historic, beautiful city of Viana do Castelo. Its pearly white, magnificent Santa Luzia Church presides over the city, sitting high on the hilltop and very appealing to those who appreciate Romanesque-Byzantine architecture. Entrance is free and you can visit using the city’s funicular transport to save the steep climb. 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.

Surrounding Viana do Castelo and Cabadelo are some spectacular landscapes brimming with waterfalls and fabulous nature trails. This amazing region of outstanding natural beauty offers wild beaches, lush forested hills and slow flowing rivers. 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!

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!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Casa Cabadelo is ideal for a small family that wants to combine a beach stay with visiting the wonderful rivers, towns and cities of the Minho. The apartment is fairly compact but it does offer comfortable bedrooms and a small balcony. The complex offers a communal swimming pool and a tennis court.

Casa Cabadelo is just steps from the gorgeous Cabadelo Beach. There are a number of other beaches also within easy reach of the apartment including Praia da Amorosa and Praia da Belinho. Praia do Cabadelo sits at the mouth of the Lima River. Cabadelo and the neighbouring Praia de Luzia Mar are both very sandy, backed by low dunes and extensive pine forests. There are views across the river to the medieval city Viana do Castelo and the stunning Santa Luzia Church, perched high above on the hill. Among the regulars at the beach are surfers, windsurfers and bodyboarders. Children also enjoy paddling, swimming and hiring kayaks on the river. Children love taking the ferry across the river to stroll around Viana do Castelo.

Porto is an easy day trip from the apartment. You can take the train or drive. The Crystal Palace Gardens in Downtown Porto are lovely. The contemporary museum, Serralves, is designed by the famous Portuguese architect Siza Veira and has a huge attractive garden. You can take a boat trip to see the city’s wonderful bridges over the Douro. The 250 year old Torre dos Clerigos offers some of the best views of the city. There are 240 steps to the top of the baroque 76 metre tower. The city park, Parque de Cidade, stretches from the western end of Avenue da Boavista to the oceanfront at Praia do Castello do Queijo. It is perfect for a picnic and you can also visit Porto’s Sea Life Centre. The World of Discoveries Museum is interactive and child friendly. It charts the odyssey of the early Portuguese navigators and famous explorers including Vasco da Gama and Pedro Alvares Cabral. There are two zoos in Porto. You can feed the penguins at Santo Inacio Zoo or enjoy the tigers, leopards, bears and flamingoes at Zoo da Maia.

    Great location, speedy communication, and even included a babysitting recommendation which really helped me. Flat came just as described. I would stay again

  • Great location!

    on 07/06/2021

    The apartment is just a couple of mins from a beautiful beach, some restaurants, and the hourly 5 min ferry journey to Viana do Castelo town centre. The flat was quiet, comfortable and extremely clean. It could do with some updating, but you'll have everything you need for your stay.
