In an idyllic setting nestled between the lush valleys that are typical of the Minho countryside and with views out to the sea, Villa Postiga is an ancient farmhouse close to the fishing town of Vila Praia de Ancora on the Costa Verde.

Constructed from traditional stone and renovated throughout with a combination of rustic charm and modern conveniences, this luxury holiday home offers an atmospheric retreat within enchanting, extensive grounds.

Villa Postiga is set over two floors and offers high quality and impressive accommodation. The charming open plan living/dining space has a spacious sitting area which features a large leather corner sofa and comfortable armchairs. Enjoy the views out over the garden during the day and spend a cosy evening in with a film on the large flat screen television. An elegant table and chairs seats up to eight people and provides a sophisticated dining experience, with the adjacent kitchen adding further classical style with its marble worktops and breakfast bar.
The master double bedroom has sliding doors straight into a stunning ensuite bathroom with sunken bathtub and views over the outside space. A further two double bedrooms each have an ensuite shower room. Another bedroom features two sets of bunk beds, seating area, ensuite shower room and doors that open out onto the gardens.

Adjacent to the villa is a cottage with a large open plan living/dining area, with generous seating for up to 16 people, meaning everyone can come together for meals. The sofa and chairs sit around a wood burning stove and feature window, making it a warm space for relaxing and watching some incredible sunsets. A well-equipped kitchen also shares this area and creates a wonderfully sociable room for cooking, dining and unwinding. One double bedroom features doors that open onto the outside space and the other has a small balcony from which to appreciate the views over the grounds and out across the beautiful surrounding area. Both have ensuite shower rooms and original character features throughout.

The stone-walled outside space surrounding the villa is simply magnificent. As you walk through the lawned gardens with mature trees you'll feel as if you've discovered a secret world of your very own. Stone structures that still stand from the time they were used for farming give the sense of living history right on your doorstep. Bringing the outside space right up to date is a large, private swimming pool with terrace. Overlooking the pool is an area ideal for al fresco dining perfect for those warm summer evenings.

The villa enjoys a quiet, rural setting and so there are few amenties close by. You'll need a car to reach the nearest shop or minimarket. Country roads dotted with old buildings and places of worship are within walking distance and are a lovely way to get a feel for the culture and way of live in this beautiful part of northern Portugal.

Vila Praia de Ancora is a small resort town and just a short drive from the villa. It's the perfect place to spend a day on the sand before enjoying a glorious seafood lunch at one of the many beachfront restaurants. Walk into the town to pick up essentials or indulge in some retail therapy before heading back to the villa.

Around a 15-minute drive away is historical Caminha. This town is full of character, with its buildings that span many centuries and styles. Pass through an impressive clock tower that was once the medieval castle's keep and you'll find yourself in Caminha's main square, where many fine examples of architecture can be found. Pause at the 16th century fountain at the heart of the square and then soak up the atmosphere at a cafe terrace with a coffee and local pastry.

Porto is just under an hour away by car and is the second largest city in Portugal, as well as one of the oldest. Sitting along the Douro River, the walk from the riverbank into the city will take you down winding, cobbled streets that reveal beautiful houses, churches and squares. One of Porto's most famous attractions is the Livraria Lello. Built over a hundred years ago, this bookshop is more like a grand library with its floor-to-ceiling wooden bookshelves, sweeping red carpet staircase and stained-glass ceiling.

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

There are so many spaces that the children will love at Villa Postiga, with the definite highlight being the double bunk bed room. The only thing to worry about will be arguments over who gets the top bunks! The grounds are a fantastic playground, with so many hidden corners to explore and to spark the younger ones' imaginations. The large swimming pool is sure to be a hit with all ages.

Around an hour's drive from the villa is Porto and the World of Discoveries, a museum and theme park that the children will love. Through the clever use of engaging displays, interactive touch screens and costumed guides, it tells the story of the early Portuguese navigators. You can even go on a boat ride that floats you through recreations of the lands that these intrepid Portuguese explorers discovered.
