Located next to the beach in the coastal resort of Viana do Castelo sits this attractive seven-bedroom villa. Cheerful in design, the interiors are modern and cool, with almost every room drenched in light from glass doors and large windows.

On the ground floor, the lounge features contemporary lighting, an open fireplace and a huge sofa that invites you to take it easy. It’s the perfect room for a family or friends to relax in and overlooks a pretty terrace. From the lounge, tiled flooring sweeps through to a thoroughly modern dining area. Grey tones and stylish décor make this a chic space, and pleasant extras include potted plants, sleek mirrors and huge cushions and rugs. Enjoy a sociable meal at one of the two dining tables, then afterwards unwind on a plump beanbag in front of the TV. There’s even an open fireplace to keep things cosy on cooler nights. For a more casual bite-to-eat, step through to the spacious kitchen and dine at the breakfast table.

When it’s time for bed, choose from seven bedrooms. Featuring three king-size and four twin bedrooms, all the bedrooms are wonderfully serene with neutral tones and neat décor. One of the king-size rooms also boasts a private balcony with a hammock. The villa also has five pristine bathrooms, and four of them have their own tub. In the morning, work up a sweat in the gymnasium, then head outside to the garden and plunge into the pool. During the day, take it easy on one of the shady sunbeds, enjoy a game of table tennis on the decked terrace or bask in the sun on the first-floor terrace. Come evening, gather everyone together, light the barbeque and dine al fresco while watching the stars light up the skies. Villa Marmita is located in a quiet residential area surrounded by lush trees and within walking distance of restaurants and bars. An idyllic spot, it is also perfectly placed for surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, with a beautiful sandy beach right on its doorstep.

Villa Marmita is located in the seaside resort of Viana do Castelo on Portugal’s Costa Verde coastline. Praia do Cabedolo is just a 5-minutes walk from the property and is wide and clean and backed by sand dunes and a pine forest. It’s a popular choice for surfers, windsurfers and bodyboarders and a good spot to watch the sunset over the Atlantic waves. It also boasts a vibrant nightlife, and come evening, partygoers flock to the numerous bars that overlook the shore.

From here, jump on the ferry and make the 5-minute crossing over the Rio Lima to the town’s centre. Stroll through the old quarter and admire the Manueline manors and rococo palaces that line the narrow streets, then stop for a coffee in the pretty square with its Renaissance fountain, curious 16th-century almshouse and medieval atmosphere. Afterwards, explore the Museu Municipal. Located in an 18th-century palace, it’s home to a beautiful collection of ceramics and furniture from Portugal’s former colonies, plus paintings of 19th-century Viana.

The hill of Monte de Santa Luzia rises up from the town and is crowned by a striking basilica. If you’re feeling energetic, climb the hill (or take the funicular), then stop and marvel at the sweeping views of the coast and Lima valley. While at the summit, look inside the Santa Luzia church, while those with a head for heights can take the narrow staircase to the dome’s top, where you’ll be rewarded with more stunning views.

For an active day out, journey north to the town of Ponte de Lima (25 minutes). Situated on the River Lima, here you can hire kayaks and view the Roman-built bridge, centuries-old mansions and fragrant gardens. For further activity, head to the surrounding Serra d’Arga hills and spend the day mountain biking and hiking. Afterwards, be sure to stop back in Ponte de Lima’s main square and enjoy a glass of the locally produced Vinho Verde while soaking up the town’s medieval atmosphere.

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 Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Marmita is a light and breezy home, and children will love the open-plan living area and separate lounge with funky decor. Although the interior is chic, there are homely features, including a TV, beanbags and plenty of soft furnishings. Children will also love the comfortable bedrooms and colourful bathrooms. Outside, kids can spend the day splashing in the swimming pool, relaxing on a sun lounger or playing on the lawn.

Although the villa benefits from a peaceful, residential setting, it’s less than a 5-minute walk to the Praia do Cabedolo beach. Here children can build sandcastles on the shore, run free in the dunes or try their hand at a number of watersports, including surfing and body boarding. There’s even a surf school on the beach so you can book lessons. After a day’s activity, enjoy an ice cream and bite-to-eat at one of the beachside restaurants. Once children have exhausted the beach, they can explore Viana’s town centre.

If you’re in the mood for a spot of retail therapy, head to Viana’s sprawling shopping mall or alternatively pick up affordable ceramics and local handicrafts at Viana’s lively Friday market. While in the town, be sure to stop at the interactive chocolate museum. It’s a fun and educational place, and kids can learn about the whole chocolate-making process and even make a bar of chocolate of their own. Afterwards, jump on the funicular railway and ride to the top of Viana’s 228-metre hill. At the summit, you’ll find the Santa Luzia church, and children can take a look inside and even climb the winding staircase to the dome’s top.

Also worth a visit is the pretty town of Ponte de Lima, a 25-minute drive inland. Here, the more adventurous can kayak along the river, while those seeking more laid-back entertainment can stop at the toy museum and marvel at the toy soldiers, dolls and model railways.
