The space
This place was a dream come true. We have refurbished it with a lot of care and patience to bring back the original character of these spaces. The refurbishment of the houses was done with traditional techniques which allowed us to bring the buildings back to the original local style. We take great care of the gardens and produce our own vegetables and fruits.

The property features one main house (which will be closed) and the chalet. The whole interior has been recently redecorated with new appliances and furniture.
The whole kitchen is brand new. There is an expresso machine for your use, as well as a microwave, hob, toaster, kettle and fridge.
The bathroom features a shower, toilet and a vanity unit with a big sink and mirror.
To allow for more flexibility of the space we have put two single sofa-beds that can be easily (un)folded and moved around to suit your needs. There is also a double bed and a built-in wardrobe. Thus four persons can be comfortably accommodated in this house.
Two sets of tables can be joined together for a big dinner or put apart as desks. A directors chair and a white pouf is provided so you can take them outside and enjoy reading in the sun.

We have also recently acquired a new baby crib and highchair which will be available at your request.

More recently we have built this amazing 10x5m infinity swimming pool. On the pool deck there are sun beds and a large pouf for relaxing and sunbathing. Please note that the swimming pool is only available during the Summer months.

Guest access
You will have full access to the stone chalet along with all the exterior spaces of the property. This includes the 10x5m infinity swimming pool, the sun deck and all the surrounding gardens.

Location

Carreço, Viana do Castelo, Portugal

The house is set within a rural environment and surrounded by very nice local people. It is located right at the Camino de Santiago. There is a great bakery close by with different types of fresh bread and pastries everyday. Carreço beach can easily be easily reached with a 15-20 minute walk.

The portuguese northern coast features some of the best surfing spots in Europe. Beaches like Praia da Arda, Vila Praia de Âncora or Praia de Moledo are easily reachable and feature great waves. There are also some surf schools that operate on these beaches. The Praia do Cabedelo is also know for its great conditions for Windsurf and Kitesurf.

The close proximity to Viana do Castelo (10 minute drive) means you can easily enjoy this rich historical and cultural city. Viana do Castelo is also a great destination to see contemporary architecture, made by two Pritzker prized architects (Alvaro Siza Vieira and Eduardo Souto de Moura) and many other. During the month of August, Viana do Castelo holds its festivities which include a procession of local women in traditional costumes that display beautiful gold ornaments. The festival ends with a fabulous firework display shot from the bridge over the Lima River.

To the north there are other small towns within close reach, such as Vila Praia de Âncora, Caminha or Valença.
Spain's border is only 12km from the house and there is plenty to see and do in Galicia.

The amazing Gerês Natural Park can be reached a within 40 minute drive and the mountain of Serra D'Arga sits just 30 minutes away. There are also various charming historical towns and villages to visit such as Ponte de Lima, Melgaço, Monção which are very close to the house. Braga and Guimarães can be a great one day city escape. And Porto is just 50 minutes away.

I am a young Architect and an avid guitar player currently living in London. I am originally from Porto and lived there for the most part of my life. But over the last 12 years I have been living in different countries such as Portugal, Belgium, Spain and the UK. My parents (an entrepreneur engineer and a french teacher) live in Porto and they will be your hosts for your stay. They are extremely nice people and will be able to tell you all about what to see and do. And of course where to enjoy some of the best food of the region, especially fish and seafood. The refurbishment of this house was their dream and with a lot of effort and commitment they were able to create this amazing place! We are very committed to making this a beautiful place, thus we take great care of all the plants in the garden and grow our own vegetables and fruits. I hope you love what you see and that you feel tempted to stay at this place!
