Situated in a peaceful position within leafy surroundings and enjoying views of both the sea and Minho River, Villa Senade is a contemporary and comfortable holiday home within easy distance of several sandy beaches.

The villa has been furnished with a neutral décor, with touches of cool blues and greys to create the perfect relaxing retreat after days out exploring the beautiful Minho region and Costa Verde.

On the lower floor are two bedrooms; one being a double with door opening onto an outdoor terrace and the other with a set of bunk beds, ensuite shower room and access to the outside space. There's also a shower room for use by all guests. Providing extra convenience for your stay is a laundry room with washing machine.

The upper floor's main feature is a spacious open plan living/dining area. An extra large sofa and comfortable chair with footstool allows everyone to sit and watch a film together on the flat screen television. Large patio doors open onto a partially covered terrace with furniture that extends the indoor living space even further. The dining area features a stylish 60s-inspired table and chairs and the fully fitted kitchen and pantry is easily accessed through the doorway behind. Here, there's a large fridge freezer and plenty of storage space, so you can stock up on a range of local foods for creating delicious meals.
There are three bedrooms on this floor, with a double bedroom, twin bedroom sharing a light, modern bathroom and a master bedroom with its own en-suite shower room. All have sliding doors opening onto the swimming pool terrace and garden with uninterrupted views of the turquoise sea.

The external space features a private swimming pool, built-in barbecue and lawned mature gardens that wrap around the villa. A terrace with table and chairs provides a lovely space for outdoor dining. Further seating in the garden allows for a spot of sunbathing with a drink in hand, all whilst soaking up the views.

The villa is within a 20-minute walk of amenities such as a minimarket, shops and restaurants. For a wider choice of facilities and days out, the pretty town of Caminha is just over 2 km from the villa and an easy drive.

The main attraction of the town is the square with its numerous historical features, such as the 16th century fountain that sits at the heart of the area and the medieval castle keep that was turned into a clock tower during the 17th century. There's a weekly market where you can buy examples of work by local lacemakers and artisans, as well as a range of fresh produce and items of clothing.

Caminha is where the Minho River meets the ocean and so creates a naturally beautiful landscape of sandy river banks, green countryside and pine forests that perch on the sides of granite mountains. You can go surfing on the strong waves of the sea or kayak down the Minho River for a more leisurely way to soak up the scenery of the area.

Drive around 10 minutes south and you'll reach Praia de Moledo, which is particularly popular with windsurfers. Parking is available close to the beach, and there are many cafes from which to grab some lunch before settling down on the sands for an afternoon of relaxation and fun with the family.

Not far out to sea from the beach is a small island that's home to the Ínsua Fortress. Originally built in the 15th century as a convent, it was converted into a coastal defence post during later centuries. Local fishermen offer regular boat trips to the island for those wanting to visit this dramatic structure.

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 Senade is a safe and secure holiday home where children can relax and explore. They'll especially love the bedroom with bunk beds which also has direct access to the outdoor terrace. The swimming pool is also ideal for the whole family to get together before enjoying a meal cooked on the built-in barbecue.

Around 17 km north of the villa is the town of Vila Nova de Cerveira and the wonderful Parque de Lazer de Castelinho. This riverside park gives children the opportunity to try out a water play area, mini golf and climbing wall, amongst many other activities. For some quiet time afterwards, head down to the river bank to relax and simply watch the water lapping the shore as you enjoy a picnic or ice cream.
