Occupying an elevated position and surrounded by lush green landscapes, Villa Barcelos is a tastefully designed holiday home close to the famous market town of Barcelos in Portugal's Minho region.

This stone-built cottage has been comprehensively renovated throughout, with the final touches in 2012 creating a villa that combines sleek, modern designs with traditional rustic charm. Providing complete privacy and set within a large plot, the positioning of Villa Barcelos allows for stunning panoramic views of the local area.

Being a single storey villa, all rooms are conveniently located for ease of access. The open plan kitchen/lounge is a friendly space in which to enjoying cooking and relaxing together. With a comfortable sofa area, television, DVD player and music centre, all the family will be kept entertained.

The well-fitted kitchen is fully equipped with modern appliances and features a breakfast bar with four stools. Both areas have doors that lead out onto the front terrace. Offering peaceful views of the outside space are three double bedrooms, with two having twin beds and one a double bed. An extra bed is available for an additional person if required.

Also within the plot is a separate stone building, adjacent to the main villa. The open plan space includes a dining table and chairs, small kitchen and a seating area with a television and feature fireplace. It leads out to a covered patio with a large built-in barbecue and outdoor furniture for making the most of the fantastic views as you dine.

The stone-walled lawned gardens are an excellent place for having fun with the family, getting active, or for just soaking up your surroundings. Features include a paved courtyard, a large private pool, a plunge pool, multi-purpose sports court, children's sandbox and a vegetable garden area. There's also space for two cars with private and direct access to the villa.

Villa Barcelos boasts an idyllic situation within the unspoilt countryside of the Minho region and provides some of the best views you could hope for in this naturally beautiful part of northern Portugal.

The immediate area is rather quiet, as you might expect from such a tranquil setting. The Minho region is famous for Vinho Verde wine, so it's no surprise that there are private farms close by where you can enjoy food and wine tastings.

The charming town of Barcelos is just 10 minutes away by car and is a convenient place to stock up on the essentials, as well as treating yourself to some holiday mementoes. This small medieval town has a range of shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, with history around every corner. You'll love trying to spot the ceramic cockerels dotted all over the town and then learning about the famous legend behind them within the ruins of the Paço dos Condes de Barcelos.

Pottery, in general, is one of Barcelos' main claims to fame, with a museum full of sculptures to stroll around. The weekly market held every Thursday is not to be missed, as it's one of the biggest in Portugal and is just bursting with handicrafts, souvenirs, food and clothing.

If relaxing on the beach is more your style, then make a day of it and drive to one of the sandy stretches of the Costa Verde in under an hour. The scenery of the private beaches range from secluded coves to dramatic cliffs, and there are plenty of watersports to try on the open waves.

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!

Kids

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

Villa Barcelos was designed with children in mind. The outside space offers a range of activities that appeal to all interests, whether it's high energy sports, quietly exploring the vegetable garden or playing in the sandbox and on the swings.

All the family will love having the choice of using the main pool for swimming or the plunge pool for cooling down. Maia Zoo is under an hour's drive from the villa and will keep the family entertained all day.

There's a variety of animals to see and get close to, including bears, lions, monkeys and birds. Visit the reptile house and small farm, then stop for lunch in the restaurant before watching a sea lion show.
