Nestled just a short 10-minute drive away from the charming and renowned market town of Barcelos, this stone-built cottage underwent an extensive renovation project, which was concluded in July 2012. The outcome is nothing short of remarkable—a holiday villa that seamlessly blends contemporary comforts and modern conveniences with the rustic charm of its original structure. We are delighted to offer this splendid retreat to our guests who wish to explore the unspoiled beauty of the Minho region.

The villa promises absolute seclusion and is situated on an expansive plot, encompassing a beautifully enclosed garden with lush green lawns, an expansive outdoor barbecue kitchen, a private pool, a children's plunge pool, and a multi-sports area. As part of our commitment to ensuring your stay is enjoyable, we provide essential amenities such as WiFi internet access and air conditioning in the main house.

The villa is a single-story villa designed to maximize convenience and comfort. An open-plan, fully equipped kitchen seamlessly connects with the lounge area, both of which open onto the front terrace and the inviting pool area. The kitchen boasts granite countertops and a matching backsplash, along with essential appliances, including an oven, hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, kettle, and coffee machine. A convenient breakfast bar with four stools invites casual dining. The lounge area features two comfortable sofas, a satellite TV for your entertainment, a DVD player, and a music centre.

The villa comprises three double bedrooms, two of which feature twin beds, while the third offers a double bed. There is also a wheelchair-accessible shower room for added convenience. Additionally, we can provide an extra bed or cot for a child (7th person).

The villa's exterior is a haven of tranquillity, surrounded by charming stone walls and a paved courtyard. An expansive private pool measuring 10 X 5 meters with depths ranging from 0.90 to 1.5 meters invites you to take refreshing dips. A separate children's pool ensures that young guests have their own safe space to splash and play.

Sports enthusiasts will delight in the outdoor sports area, equipped with football goals, a basketball hoop, tennis facilities, and badminton equipment. A sandbox is thoughtfully provided for younger children. A shaded vegetable garden area, just a stone's throw from the pool, allows you to harvest ripe tomatoes and peppers to enhance your culinary creations. A pergola-covered veranda beckons you to unwind and soak in the views. Convenient private parking spaces for two cars offer direct access to the villa, ensuring your convenience throughout your stay.

About the surrounding area of Villa Barcelos
<1hr to Airport Rural Location Walking/Hiking Paths Wine Tasting Outstanding Landscapes
Loading map

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.

    Fantastic place to stay with great facilities, quiet location, relaxing, stunning views -it was our second visit which says it all !! highly recommended

  • Serenidade, paz, segurança e tranquilidade

    on 27/06/2021

    Serenidade, paz, segurança e tranquilidade, são as palavras que me ocorrem a mim e à minha família, depois da estadia em Barcelos. Realmente e tal como me disse no nosso primeiro contacto, as fotografias não fazem justiça ao espaço que encontramos. Tudo impecavelmente higienizado, bem tratado e com muito gosto, vemos que existe muito carinho na preparação da chegada dos hóspedes. Os jovens adoraram os mimos deixados pela vossa equipa. E a privacidade foi total. Obrigada de coração, depois do caos destes últimos meses, estes dias trouxeram a calma que precisamos para enfrentar um novo ano.
