    Quinta dos Castanheiros

Just outside the local hamlet of Rebordões, a private driveway winds its way through the dappled shade of chestnut trees to a clearing in the midst of the woodland, where the stone-pillared verandas and elegant façade of Quinta dos Castanheiros look imposingly onto a generously proportioned pool and sun terrace below.

It is an idyllic and wonderfully private retreat.  Wide pathways meander through the trees, furnished every now and then with stone seating for secluded moments of contemplation; cobbled terraces occupy intimate corners and down below, a stream can be heard trickling along the boundary. 

Adjoining the south-eastern façade, a smart veranda overlooks a courtyard from where steps lead the way through a flowerbed of colourful hydrangeas to the 14.5 metre swimming pool, ingeniously designed in a pleasingly curved form and conveniently adjoined by a spacious terrace with covered outdoor dining facilities.

Three years of skilled craftsmanship and thoughtful design saw the original dwelling virtually erased and replaced with the current residence.  Its considerable extension has produced a sense of spaciousness that is evident even in the uniquely styled bathrooms, where exquisite hand-painted tiles create the prettiest of pictures.  Eye-catching wooden ceilings, carved in the design so typical of the region, complement wooden floors and in-built cabinets showcase the brightly painted local pottery that the owner so proudly collects.

It would be tempting to simply unwind and stay within the restful grounds of Quinta dos Castanehiros.  However, no visit to the Minho would be complete without experiencing the cobbled squares, ancient buildings and fortnightly riverside market of Ponte de Lima, one of the prettiest towns in the region and home to an enticing selection of restaurants and shops.  Also not to be missed are the seemingly endless stretches of sandy dune-backed beaches which are just a 30 minute drive from the property.

Terraced grounds mean that young children will require supervision.
