This splendid holiday villa, nestled in a privileged location, has undergone an extensive and meticulous renovation to seamlessly marry the ancient essence of the house with the contemporary conveniences demanded by today's standards. Careful curation of the most elegant details, from furnishings to tableware, combined with every conceivable comfort, guarantees an unforgettable vacation in this exquisite abode.

The open-plan kitchen and living space boasts a generously sized wooden table, impeccably appointed with amenities such as a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, expansive hob and oven, kettle, toaster, dual coffee machines, an assortment of pans, and more. The living area also boasts a satellite TV, DVD player, and home cinema setup. The recent extension to the property introduces a reception area with a desk, ideal for guests needing to attend to work matters.

Additionally, there's a guest shower room, a Turkish steam room catering to two occupants, and a twin bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Accessibility is a priority here, with a step-free ground floor and a wheelchair-friendly en-suite bathroom in the twin bedroom featuring ample space for manoeuvrability. The car parking area is accessible via a slope with a gentle 6% incline leading directly to the villa's entrance. The swimming pool, designed with built-in steps, enhances accessibility compared to traditional aluminium ladders.

The upper floor comprises four double bedrooms, two offering double beds, and the remaining two are furnished with twin beds. Each bedroom boasts its own en-suite shower facility.

Expansive sunbathing terraces, verdant lawns, and mature gardens surround the villa. Outdoor relaxation zones encompass a generously proportioned covered terrace, tastefully furnished for comfort and complete with a dining table adjacent to the kitchen. The villa boasts a private swimming pool (measuring 10 x 4.5 meters, with a depth ranging from 1 to 1.90 meters), a grassy children's playground, and a sports area suitable for football, volleyball, and badminton. The option for pool heating is available upon request.

Loading map

Casa Coura offers the best of both worlds, with a peaceful and rural position, yet ideally located for getting out and exploring the beautiful surrounding area. Many new towns are within easy driving distance, with Paredes de Coura being approximately 8 km from the villa.

This small town has several shops and supermarkets in which to pick up your holiday essentials and restaurants serving delicious local fare. In August there's a big music festival in the town's central park, the Taboão River Beach and it's a great place to enjoy a picnic or a dip in the river.

The Regional Museum of Paredes de Coura provides an insight into the area's cultural heritage, mainly through the arts and archaeological finds. There are fascinating displays, including those of textiles, agricultural equipment and decorative objects.

The Corno do Bico Protected Landscape is just a short drive from the centre of town and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Walk through woods and rivers to try and spot some of the wildlife often placed here, such as otters and boars. The beautiful mountainside landscape also provides panoramic views over the town and nearby area.

Approximately 25 km from the villa is the town of Vila Nova de Cerveira. Situated on the banks of the River Minho, it's a place full of history, art and beautiful buildings. One must-see attraction is the Castelo de Vila Nova de Cerveira, a medieval castle that now incorporates an art museum and features artworks both inside and out. Take in unobstructed views of the town and river as you walk along the castle walls.

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!

Reviews

  • Casa Coura

    on 06/06/2023

    O melhor elogio que podemos prestar é dizer que reservamos esta casa repetidamente nos últimos anos e continuaremos a fazê-lo.

    É casa e o local são lindíssimos, não faltou nada para uma semana tranquila de férias em família.

  • Relaxing, cosy, stress-free holiday retreat

    on 05/01/2021

    In this unprecedented time, we decided to practise what we preach and spend our annual family holiday (2+2) in these self-catering villas. Even though we know the villas and region well, we were pleasantly surprised. There was so much of the Minho region to (re)discover, and as always, the pictures don't do the properties justice. Casa Coura is located in a perfect setting, a home away from home with everything you need for a relaxing, cosy, stress-free holiday retreat. Waking up to the picturesque views was a bonus. Our walks and short drive outings became part of our daily routine. It's unbelievable how much there is to see and do in the unspoilt Minho region. And the Turkish steam room was a haven after our competitive football matches. Initially, we thought a 9-night stay would be pushing it with 2 (pre)teens, but we all enjoyed the peacefulness, serenity and tranquillity after a long, overwhelming year. Happy New Year!

  • Excellent!

    The pool size is great. Great for a family holiday. Swings are great for the kids. Steamroom was a lovely touch.
