Quinta dos Castanheiros is the ideal property for the discerning traveller who wants to take family, friends or a small corporate group to one of the most beautiful parts of northern Portugal. Here you'll enjoy the privacy of a large luxury villa with all the comforts of home and at the same time experience the history and lifestyle of the Portuguese aristocracy. On the ground floor is a fully equipped kitchen and a dining room full of regional crafts and artworks from the owner's amazing collection. The kitchen is complete with gas stovetop, oven, refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher. There is also a large formal living room with fireplace, offering lovely views across the front and back gardens. Completing this floor are five distinctive and elegantly decorated suites, each with its own bathroom with bathtub and shower, featuring original, hand-painted designs on the tiles.

Extra amenities include heating throughout the house to ensure your comfort in winter, laundry facilities and two extra bathrooms. Air conditioning is not necessary since the thick walls allow the house to remain cool in the summer. The amazing private gardens are filled with lavender, cypress, magnolia, wisteria and chestnut trees. A pond filled with carp is another of the original and beautiful features you will find on this wonderful property. The flood-lit swimming pool is surrounded by a sun terrace, a barbecue area and plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture. A maid provides daily cleaning services six days a week, which is included in the price.

The basement contains a large games room with satellite TV, billiard table, soccer table, DVD and video players and a surround sound music system. An exquisite bedroom suite completes this floor with direct access to the gardens. Expansive, breathtaking gardens, olive groves and forests surrounding the property beckon you to take a walk and visitors can also discover waterfalls nearby where you can swim.

Many interesting destinations in northern Portugal are within easy access via the highway. Only 80 kilometres (49 miles) away, Porto is the country's second largest city. Wine connoisseurs can visit the numerous Port wine lodges and taste the different varieties or take a river cruise along the Douro to see wine growing in action! Situated west in the Lima river estuary, Viana do Castelo offers beautiful beaches and popular festivals. The city of Braga – perhaps Portugal's main religious centre – is known for its baroque churches, splendid 18th Century houses and elaborate gardens and parks. Heading south east, the Guimarães historical centre is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also known as the birthplace of the nation. Come and enjoy the best of Northern Portugal!

Location description from owner

Northern Portugal region

With its stunning coastal, river and mountain landscapes, century old cities and villages, age-old culture and gastronomical know-how, the Minho (Costa Verde) is the ideal place for a holiday. Whether you prefer adventure or relaxation, you will find that the Minho has a little something to everyone's liking. Unlike the south of Portugal, the North is unspoilt and extremely rich in beauty and culture. Many Portuguese consider the Minho to be the most beautiful part of the country - From lush river valleys, forested hillsides, trailing vines and long, sandy beaches to beautifully arranged city centres and architecture, the Minho has it all. Long-standing customs are maintained throughout the region, noticeable at dozens of huge country markets and, especially in summer, you're likely to come across these fairs and festivals and it's worth trying to plan a trip around the larger events if you're keen to experience Minho life at its most exuberant.

Ponte de Lima

Many Portuguese consider the Minho to be most beautiful part of their country.
Ponte de Lima (25 Km east of Viana do Castelo) is truly representative of the Minho region with it`s monuments, markets and magnificent palaces and manor houses in the town and surrounding area.
There is an excellent woodland golf course in Ponte de Lima (with a par 5 of some 600 meters).
The food is considered to be one of the country`s best, so in Ponte de Lima you will find several very good restaurants and cafés.
During the summer, in june/july there is usually an equine event. Show jumping and dressage are among the events.
There are many summer festivals, such as the Flower Festival that held`s a great attraction, and folklore festival.
