A MAGIC PLACE

Marco’s Villa is located in the small village of Gondarem, parish of Raiva, municipality of Castelo de Paiva, Aveiro district/Porto area.

Being Gondarem also part of an old mining region, the produce of the land, fishing and the mines of Terramonte were once the sustain of the families who lived here.

The beauty, calm and peaceful environment of this place, as well as the breathtaking landscape surrounding Douro have been growing an interest and attention of visitors who are eager to combine cultural holidays with relaxing views, quiet surroundings with also exciting and perfect spots for hikers and adventurers.

With excellent roads and highway access, it’s a quick 40 min drive away from Porto city and it’s part of the emerging concept of modern rural tourism in Portugal.
