Villa Queimosa enjoys a lovely spot in the peaceful village of Chafe, very close to the mesmerising Viana do Castelo. The pearly white, neo-Byzantine Santa Luzia Church presides over the city, sitting high on the hilltop. Viana do Castelo’s compact historic centre boasts extravagant religious buildings, delightful cafes, elegant plazas and narrow shopping streets which open onto the banks of the Rio Lima.

Villa Queimosa enjoys a region of outstanding natural beauty with wild beaches, lush forested hills and slow flowing rivers. It is a farming region where the famous ‘vinho verde’ is produced. Ponte de Lima is one of the most characterful and picturesque towns of Northern Portugal, on the southern banks of the Lima River. The location has been the main river crossing since the Romans constructed a bridge in 1AD. There is a delightful mix of ancient houses, grand religious buildings and pretty plazas. There are a number of interesting museums as well as colourful flower gardens and stunning natural scenery all around. The Ponte do Lima is an excellent centre for adventure activities such as the Ecovia cycling route, kayaking along the Lima River, mountain biking or hiking in the Serra D’Arga or birdwatching in the Lagoas de Bertiandos. You can river bathe in Labruja.

When staying at the villa, you shouldn’t miss a trip to Braga. Braga is regarded as one the main religious centres of Portugal, with the oldest cathedral and many Gothic churches. Every hour you will hear a cocophony of different church bells ringing out! It is the third largest city of Portugal and is a joy to explore. Braga is an enthralling university city and the setting for Bom Jesus do Monte, a fine monument. The historic centre is fully pedestrianised. There are pretty city gardens, charming plazas and busy shopping streets.

If you decide to take a trip into Galicia being that you are so close, then Tui is an absolute delight. It boasts a beautiful historic centre and an excellent range of gourmet dining as well as excellent shops. Tui is located south of the Pontevedra province and sits on the edge of the Minho River, opposite the Portuguese town of Valenca. The towns are connected by a nineteenth century bridge. Valenca do Minho is located on the hillside overlooking the left bank of the Minho and on the main road that links the Spanish Santiago de Compostela with Porto. Tourists flock to the town to buy embroidered tablecloths and sheets, the speciality of the town.

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!

Villa Queimosa is perfect for a family holiday. It is a stunning property with a large garden and a brilliant swimming pool which can be heated for an extra cost. There are a number of beaches within a five to ten minute drive of the villa including Praia da Amorosa, Praia da Belinho and Praia do Cabadelo. Praia do Cabadelo sits at the mouth of the river Lima. Cabadelo and the neighbouring Praia de Luzia Mar are both very sandy, backed by low dunes and extensive pine forests. There are views across the river to the medieval city Viana do Castelo and the stunning Santa Luzia Church, perched high above on the hill. Among the regulars at the beach are surfers, windsurfers and bodyboarders. Children also enjoy paddling and swimming in the rivers. You can hire kayaks and mess about on the river. It is such good fun! Children also love using cable cars. You can use them at Guimareas and also the vernicular railway visiting Viana do Castelo and Bom Jesus.

Porto is an easy day trip from the villa. The Crystal Palace Gardens in Downtown Porto are lovely. The contemporary museum, Serralves, is designed by the famous Portuguese architect Siza Veira and has a huge attractive garden. You can take a boat trip to see the city’s wonderful bridges over the Douro. The 250 year old Torre dos Clerigos offers some of the best views of the city. There are 240 steps to the top of the baroque 76 metre tower. The city park, Parque de Cidade, stretches from the western end of Avenue da Boavista to the oceanfront at Praia do Castello do Queijo. It is perfect for a picnic and you can also visit Porto’s Sea Life Centre. The World of Discoveries Museum is interactive and child friendly. It charts the odyssey of the early Portuguese navigators and famous explorers including Vasco da Gama and Pedro Alvares Cabral. There are two zoos in Porto. You can feed the penguins at Santo Inacio Zoo or enjoy the tigers, leopards, bears and flamingoes at Zoo da Maia.

    This villa is amazing. Beautifully equipped and appointed, with one of the most stunning pools I’ve ever seen. Highly recommended.

    Great house and location. Really close to the motorway so it is very quick to travel from Porto to the house and the roads are nice.
    The house is fantastic with a great garden and pool. We stayed in the pool all the time as the water is somewhat mild.
    I will return!
