Description from owner

Description

Yavanna is a relaxing holiday property that gets you away from the hustle and bustle of the commercialised world and lies in Portugal's beautiful Minho region only a few miles from the border with Spain. Yavanna is made up of two beautifully refurbished 300-year-old traditional granite villas/farmhouses, each with 3 bedrooms, their own kitchen, living room, 3 bathrooms, outside eating and barbecue area and a private garden.

There is also a 12x8 meters eco salt water pool with stunning views and chill-out zones and 6,000m of beautifully maintained gardens with plenty of seating, hammocks, BBQ area, table tennis & yoga.

Yavanna has flat screen TVs, DVD/satellite, WiFi as well as well-equipped modern kitchens and beautiful bedrooms with views to die for. These traditional Minho farmhouses date from 1730 and have been renovated in the past few years to a very high standard.

We pride ourselves on the quality of the service we provide our guests, ensuring that everyone leaves with a massive “wow!” We have had 5-star feedback from all who have visited.

We are available for help and advice, but at the same time very sensitive to your need for privacy. Towels and linen are provided, beds are changed weekly, and we take great pride in our standard of cleanliness, with a professional company cleaning weekly.

There are a large number of airlines offering cheap flights to the region. The nearest airports are Vigo (45 mins), Porto (1 hr), Santiago de Compostela (1½ hrs). e.g. Air Portugal (LGW and LHR), Ryanair (STN, LVL, BHX, BRS,LGW), EasyJet (LGW), Vueling (LHR), PGA Airlines, Air Berlin, Air France, SN Brussels Airlines, Hapag-Lloyd Express, Iberia, KLM, Lufthansa, Swiss. An alternative is a mini-cruise - sail from Plymouth to Santander and Bilbao. Fast trains to Vigo (20 minutes from Yavanna) from Barcelona and Madrid including overnight sleepers.

Beaches: Within a half an hour drive there are stunning sandy Atlantic surfing beaches. Portugal offers the best warm surfing in Europe with over 500 miles of consistent waves and no shortage of sunshine. Huge sandy beaches offer surf school and lifeguard patrolled areas. There is also a world renowned windsurfing spot at nearby Mindelo. At the mouth of the Minho River, there are very safe clean sheltered family beaches. These are either at Caminha in Portugal or at Camposancos in Spain, which is accessible either by bridge or ferry. All beaches can be reached in about half an hour. Cafes and restaurants are available at most beaches - they are uncommercialised, small scale and friendly. Only 10 minutes from Yavanna is a sandy beach on the Minho River itself. This is lifeguard patrolled and has a beautiful terraced cafe. There is also wonderful canoeing and fishing possible on the Minho River.

Within the immediate area, we have some very interesting towns and cities worth visiting: Porto is Portugal's second city, famous for its port wine trade, is just an hour's drive away. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal. Santiago de Compostela is just 1.5 hours away over the border in Spain. It is a city where, according to a legend, the remains of the apostle Saint James were found. Nowadays the stunning city of Santiago is the second most important Catholic Pilgrimage centre, after Rome. Vigo is the largest city in Galicia, over the border in Spain, and only 45 minutes away, known as 'The Barcelona of the West'. Ponte de Lima is a pleasant town named after its famous bridge over the river Lima, with both Medieval and Roman sections. Lisbon is Portugal's capital city. It's four hour's drive away from Yavanna, but well worth considering for those who want to extend their stay.

Golf: Ponte de Lima (half an hour away) is a par 71, 6005m, including Portugal's longest hole at 622m. Quinta da Barca golf resort (half an hour away) is an excellent 9 hole course. Estela (one hour away) is built on a 3km stretch of sand dunes is one of the Portuguese golf links that secured a good reputation for itself when it hosted two events in the European Professionals' Circuit.

Activities: Cycling, Kayaking, White Water Rafting, Surfing, Hiking, Horse Riding, Fishing, Wine Tasting, etc. There is so much to do in the nearby mountains, rivers and coast.
