Villa Paradela, Porto Region

Property ref: PP1377

A delightful farmer's cottage, lovingly converted, and only a short drive from the beach

This lovely, converted farmer's cottage is situated just outside the old fishing village of Apuila which is flanked by lush green pine forests. Set in quiet location, it is within easy reach of sandy beaches and there is a grocery store and restaurant within walking distance.

Inside is particularly comfortable, well equipped and decorated in a traditional style.

The outside area is delightful with a huge alfresco dining area, terrace, lawns and a swimming pool which has a clever, raised cover to enable guests to use the pool whatever the weather! Guests also have the use of a picnic area in the woods within a 3 minute walk of the villa.The rural yet convenient location of the area, with its agricultural fields, olive groves, vineyards (where you will be able to taste the famous Vinho Verde!) and its proximity to the roman delights of Barcelos, makes it an excellent place for a perfectly relaxing and cultural holiday in the Minho region.

Things we love...

"The huge, alfresco dining area is such a great feature. The inside/outside design means that guests can escape the sunshine and still enjoy the garden whilst cooking a feast on the barbecue for the family." Ginnie, Managing Director

Discover Porto

Things we love
“Porto is the perfect size to explore by foot. Guests will love wandering down the alleyways full of history and nostalgia, or strolling across the famous Dom Luís I Bridge before sampling some of the delicious local Port wine!”
Things to be aware of
“While the cobbled streets add character to Porto’s historic neighbourhoods, they can be challenging for those with mobility concerns. Navigating the city involves hills and uneven surfaces, which might pose difficulties for individuals with limited mobility or those pushing strollers. We recommend you wear comfortable footwear when exploring the city.”
