This sunny country house was restored during 4 years using tradicional techcnics and materials combined to comfort and opened its doors in September of 2014. It's located in the village of Vilar-a-Monte, in northern Portugal, at the doors of the Peneda Geres National Park, the only national park of Portugal. The house has two living rooms and a spacious dining room that communicates directly with the kitchen. In the dining room you will find a large table that seats up to 12 Contiguous to the dinning room there are the two living rooms. In one of them there's a fireplace. In winter, autumn and spring you can light a fire in it. Woodblocks are always available. This living room also has a satellite tv, dvd and audio system. It also has a terrace that leads directly to the pool. The other living room is perfect for relaxing and reading a book. But if you prefer you can go to the terrace outside, the perfect place to read, write or nap in the afternoon sun. The breakfast made with local and organic products is served daily. You can take it in the dining room or on one of the terraces. On request we can also prepare lunch, dinner or special meals (such as picnic baskets). With 2 superior suites, 3 double bedrooms, all of them with en-suite bathrooms, there's plenty of space for you and family or friends. On the same property there is also an apartment T0. The house and the apartment can accommodate together up to 12 guests. The rooms are spacious and confortable. We kept the tradicional wood ceelings, thick wooden shutters and portuguese pine wood floor but we added all the amenities essencial for a relaxing rest. We provided all rooms with large (1,60m*2,00m and 1,80m*2,10m), comfortable, high quality and natural matresses. You'll sleep on tradicional portuguese cotton bedlinens. You can choose your pillow: feathers or microfiber, higher or lower. Brass and crystal chandeliers complete the romantic feel of the rooms. The suites have a private living room. You can rest, read a book or take a nap in the sofa. The sofa of one of the suites turns into a pull-down double bed, so it can accommodate two extra people. The bathrooms of the suites have a large victorian bathtub, ideal for have a relaxing soaking bath. The baths of bedrooms have a spacious shower. Each of the guests will find two sets of 3 Egyptian cotton towels and lavanda Castelbel amenities so you don't have to worry about packing any of that in your bag. If you need, cots, high chairs and extra beds are available on request. In the ground floor of the house is also our old wine cellar where we produce wine at the time of the wine harvest. It is the only place that does not have heating due to its function. However in spring and summer is great for staying as lounge area; it have books and cushions and direct access to the garden outside. The whole house (including the terraces and pool solarium) has free wi-fi access and satellite television in the living room, rooms and suites. Each TV has a hdmi cabel that you can link to your computer watch your films and programs. In the sunny days you must enjoy the gardens or terraces! Outside there are sunny terraces for alfresco dining around the large table. In the gardens there are beds where you can relax and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the place and the saltwater pool, with sun loungers and sun guards around, has a privileged location for sunbathing all day. In one of the gardens there is a granary; formerly used to store grain, recovered as a space with windows, and equipped with cushions and a hammock. We love its splendid mountain views! The fully equipped BBQ with utensils and a bag of coals or wooden logs allow you prepare delicious and healthy meals. We also have a free park inside the property, where you can put your car during your vacations. Under request we can provide several services such as babysitting, guiding tours, massages, essential hampers, pick up airport, picnic baskets, etc. Say what you want and we try get it to you! Daily cleaning of the house and pool and garden maintenance are included All of these characteristics provide this space with everything necessary to make this location perfect for your holidays. Surroundings The house is located in a valley in a village; surrounded by mountains and fields. There are several trails for walking or cycling. There is a signposted pedestrian trail “albufeira da caniçada”, which crosses the center of the village, connecting villages, mountains and the river together. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Here in the village, almost all dwellers produce their own food and animals; thus if you take a walk, you certainly will cross with cultivated fields and orchards, vineyards, goats, sheep and horses. At the top of the village, there is a chapel; worth a visit. You will have a privileged view of the mountains and river. We are in the Natura area; around the Peneda Geres National Park. The river beach Alqueirão is 8km away where you can do various water activities including boating, jet skiing, padell. If you like walking, the national park has a number of signposted trails with varying degrees of distance and difficulty. You can buy the maps here in our home or at the tourist office that exists just outside the village Geres. Worth a visit! With stunning views of the mountain, river and lakes, the park is home to a real diversity of flora and fauna, such as yew, holly oaks, eagles, wild horses and a few copies of hillside goat, almost extinct species. The Miradouro da Pedra Bela, the Cascata do Arado, Campo do Geres, the 'Geira', part of the Roman road track with about 50km are some of the enigmatic points of the Peneda Geres National Park. Horse and biking riding and other activities such as spa, birdwatching, visits to historic villages, are other options available. The “Santuário da Porta Aberta”, the “Mosteiro da Abadia”” -are idiomatic references the religious aspect of the region. The Minho gastronomy is rich in flavors and diversity: cod, young goat, “Arroz Pica no Chão”, “Pudim Abade de Priscos”, are some of the suggestions worth a try. The closest restaurant, 'O cruzeiro', is 4 kilometers from our house, in the village of Santa Maria de Bouro, with traditional Portuguese cuisine. For an exceptional view, we recommend 'O abocanhado' in Brufe; a little further but certainly worthwhile. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 4736/ALMore
