About this location
Northern Portugal region
The Costa Verde or Minho Region of Portugal has a lovely climate. During July and August temperatures are usually in the late 20's to early 30's centigrade. Spring, Autumn and ear;y summer normally record temperatures in the mid 20's. This area of Portugal is steeped in history with towns such as Ponte de Lima, Braga, Barcelos as well as the famous National Parks all within a reasonable driving distance. There are "Tourismo" offices in all the larger towns where the local events are listed. It's well worth calling in as there is so much activity with fairs, carnivals etc which take place mostly during the summer months.
Praia da Amorosa
Praia da Amorosa is a purpose built peaceful resort which allows visitors to relax rather than the much busier towns and cities, however, Viana do Castelo the nearest town is only 8KM away.A bus will take you to Viana from Amorosa, alternatively you can walk along the beach for around 4 KM to Cabadelo beach and then take the short ferry accross the River Lima which takes you to Viana do Castelo.
During the month of August there is a huge festival in Viana, there are street parades, marching bands, decorated floats, street entertainers etc

"Lovely Apartment, best we've ever stayed in."
We had a great holiday, the apartment was only some 200 metres from the beach which the kids loved. We ate out quite a lot as meals are so reasonable.
There's everything you need in this small resort, our children made friends with French and Portuguese kids and if we had stayed longer they would have been fluent in their languages!!!
We flew to Oporto and rented a car, it was only about 30 minutes from the aiport. You wouldn't need to rent a car as we spoke with other holiday makers who took the metro and train up to Viana do Castelo which is only a short taxi ride away.
We couldn't fault the apartment in any way.
Glad you liked the apartment and enjoyed your holiday, we appreciate your kind review

"Lovely apartment in the heart of 'Real' Portugal"
Just arrived back in the UK (brrrr) having visited Portugal for the first time. Everyone told us this was the 'real' Portugal, and they weren't wrong! The apartmentis absolutley lovely! Nicely furnished, clean, welcoming and run with care and attention; you couldn't ask for more! Excellent. Perfectly located for access to the Minoh region, stunning landscapes, beautiful long sandy beaches, sunsets you can't take your eyes off and great food. There is tradition, and history and rural simplicity not far away and great places to visit. Highlights include Viana do Castelo (nice busy town with great views from Santa Lucia), Ponte de Lima (beautiful old town), Ponte de Barca (gorgeous quiet old town) , Barcelos (thursday market is fab - get there early!), Guimaraes (lots of history), Braga (small city, lots to see), Porto (bigger city lots to see), Monte Bom Jesus (has to be seen to be believed - so beautiful), Citiana Britainos (celtic ruins, very nice!). Could write more, but will be here all day! I recommend you go and check it out - well worth a visit.
Thanks for your review, we're delighted you enjoyed your stay in Ocean View Apartment and also your visit to the North of Portugal
