Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Walk to Village

In an enviable position with views of the sea and Minho River, Casa Couto is a bright and spacious villa set within a beautiful private garden and surrounded by quiet countryside.

Furnished with earthy tones and natural materials, the abundance of light throughout complements the interior of this holiday home and creates a warm, welcoming space. The views from the extensive garden are stunning, with the outdoor terrace being the ideal place to enjoy the scenery over an al fresco meal.

The lower floor is dominated by the spacious open plan living/dining room which features two large sofas, television and patio doors leading to the outside space. Making up the dining space is an elegant table and chairs that seats up to 10 people. There's also another living area with comfortable sofa, rattan chairs and access to the front garden. The well-appointed kitchen features a convenient breakfast bar for having a morning coffee whilst looking out over the garden and views beyond.

To the upper floor are three double bedrooms, each with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. A twin bedroom also has an ensuite bathroom. All bedrooms have sliding doors that open onto a large terrace. From being in such an elevated position, the stunning combination of land and sea views truly open up here.

The outside space provides uninterrupted views of the sea and river, which you can enjoy from the terrace as you have a meal at the outdoor dining table or informal seating area. Beautifully maintained lawns with mature trees and plants are an idyllic place to sit and soak up the peaceful atmosphere. A partially covered terrace with private heatable swimming pool can be accessed directly via the patio doors in the living/dining area on the lower floor. Attractive decking wraps around the pool and a group of sun loungers - perfect for a spot of sunbathing.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

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.
