This exceptional villa showcases a contemporary design and is situated in the picturesque region of Caminha. Perched in an elevated location, it boasts unparalleled views of both the sea and the Minho River. A short drive away, several sandy beaches await your exploration.

Characterized by a cutting-edge style, this villa is thoughtfully equipped with modern amenities. Its well-lit interior spaces seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor living, resulting in harmonious unity. Meticulously curated furnishings adorn the interiors, striking a perfect balance between comfort and sophistication. The residence is replete with all the conveniences of modern living; the well-appointed kitchen seamlessly connects to the living room, opening up to a spacious terrace that offers an ideal setting for open-air dining.

Accommodation-wise, the lower floor features a capacious living and dining area that bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor spaces. This area leads to a partially covered surface that encompasses a private (heatable) swimming pool, a terrace for sunbathing, and an outdoor dining locale. The fully-equipped kitchen, complete with a breakfast bar, is also found on this level. A second living space, adorned with comfortable seating and direct access to the front garden, completes the lower floor.

Moving to the upper floor, you'll find three double bedrooms, each boasting an ensuite bathroom, along with a twin bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom. Sliding doors in each of the four bedrooms grant access to generous terraces, where uninterrupted sea views take centre stage.

Outside, the meticulously maintained mature garden is complemented by sunbathing terraces and a lush lawn. An inviting terrace provides an ideal setting for alfresco dining, and the private covered swimming pool, measuring 10m x 5m, promises relaxation and leisure. Ample parking space is available for your convenience. The expansive manicured garden offers numerous inviting nooks for unwinding and relishing the stunning vistas of the ocean.

When you need to stock up on essentials there are amenities such as a minimarket and shops within a 20-minute walk from the villa. The nearest town is Caminha, a popular coastal resort where the River Minho meets the sea on the Costa Verde. The drive will take around 10 minutes and gives the chance to take in some lovely scenery even before you reach your destination, as the route passes close to the coast.

The old town area of Caminha is centred around the main square with features including a 16th century fountain and a clock tower that was originally the medieval castle's keep. The square is also a great place to people watch and see locals going about their daily lives. After you've taken in all the historical and cultural sights, relax with a coffee and a traditional Portuguese pastry on one of the many cafe terraces.

The Minho River is good for kayaking, canoeing and windsurfing, and the strong waves of the sea make for great surfing conditions. You can also hire bikes to follow cycle trails through the pine forests and hills that make up this area's unique landscape.

Vila Nova de Cerveira is approximately 17 km north of the villa and is a charming small town that boasts a rich history. The 13th century castle has been modified throughout the centuries and houses within its walls a 16th century town hall and a parish church. It's also a lovely place just to wander around to get a feel for what an imposing structure it must have been to the locals when it was first built.

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 Teens

Casa Couto is a very family-friendly villa, with plenty of safe outside space for children to play. The swimming pool is right outside the open plan living area on the lower floor, so swims can be supervised from indoors as well as from the surrounding terrace. A selection of toys is provided, including an outdoor playhouse.

The town of Vila Nova de Cerveira is just a 20-minute drive away from the villa and is where you'll find the Parque de Lazer de Castelinho. A large outdoor park by the Minho River, there are so many activities for children of all ages to enjoy here. The water area and playgrounds will be particularly popular with younger children, whilst older children will want to challenge the family to a game of mini golf.
