Description

Casa Portela is a stone farmhouse situated on an old Royal Way overlooking the Miño valley and Portuguese mountains. From the walled garden, a bridge leads to the terraced finca and pool. Tucked away above a pretty river valley the house lies in an idyllic spot, the perfect place to get away from it all and relax in the sun. The land is managed organically and covered in fruit, nut and other native trees. Seasonal fruit is available year round including cherries, peaches, grapes, oranges and raspberries. Plenty of garden furniture is provided along with croquet/badminton sets and boules. The saltwater pool (9m x 4.5m) is for sole use of guests.
The house has a large well equipped kitchen and dining room. It has been restored rustically, exposing the granite stone and old beams and has a traditional Galician fireplace. The kitchen leads outside to the walled garden where there is a dining area and BBQ. The living room has fantastic views down the valley. It´s a cosy place with comfy chairs and sofa, lots of books, games and satellite T.V. All three spacious bedrooms have en-suite bathroom and shower.
Staying at Casa A Portela gives you the opportunity to explore a part of Spain and Portugal almost untouched by tourism... Discover historic spa towns, try rafting on the river Miño, explore the rugged scenery of Peneda-Geres National park or check out the beautiful beaches on the Rias Baixas coast. Closer to home, a signed walk from the house leads you through breathtaking countryside, crossing back and forth over the river through ancient cork oak woodland, past stone water mills, pretty hamlets and up into hills where wild horses roam. Maybe a glass of local Albariño or Ribeiro wine by the pool sounds more appealing... You could even go for a 10 min stroll to a local vineyard where they will show you around and you can sample their wine, they also offer Spanish classes in the winery.
A brochure covering lots more local beauty spots, walks, places of interest, activities and other general information is available for guests in the house.

A Caniza - a great place at which to enjoy Galicia

By James S. on 30-Sep-2019

The property is in a quiet rural location with stunning views across the country. The house is comfortable and the facilities are good. The garden and pool catch the sun, and like the house have lovely views. Paul who manages the house is friendly and welcoming and full of useful information about the area and can source good local wine from a vineyard he knows. A great house for a relaxing break.

Wonderful property and location.

By Simon S. on 31-Aug-2019

We loved staying in this property - so well equipped, quiet and full of character. The location was great - with stunning views and handy for Spain or Portugal (the National Park there is amazing). It was so peaceful, but a car is essential. Paul and Lisa were great hosts and very helpful, with good ideas for things to do.

Lovely spot in beautiful Galicia

By AH V. on 28-Aug-2019

Comfortable family home in beautiful rural surroundings. The pool with a view was the cherry on the top - lovely place to hang out and chill. The proximity to Portugal was an added bonus (15 min by car). Lovely owners - very helpful and knowledgeable of the area. Enough activities for young and old - not touristy at all which really appealed to us. The only little challenge we had was the driveway to and from the house - its a little steep. We mastered it with a larger and smaller car so its definately possible - a matter of practice makes perfect! All in all a homely, well-equiped house perfect for a family with a stunning pool and views.
