The elevated position of the property means that the gardens and pool look out across a wide vista of the valley below.  You will no doubt spend many happy hours here, whether relaxing on the wide poolside terrace, reading a book under the shade of a tree or fighting out battles of table tennis and football in the games room. To the rear of the house, a pretty vine covered terrace is another attractive spot from which a gate leads the way to the wood.

To discover shops and restaurants, you do not need to venture far since the small village of Couto is just 2km away and has two local shops and cafés, whilst Santo Tirso with all amenities and restaurants is just 5km from the house.

Being constructed around the natural rock of the hillside, the house itself is charming and oozes character thanks to the delightful natural features that have been retained. The stairs wrap their way around an enormous boulder of open stone, which is an impressive and unique feature although young children would need supervision.  In the cheerful kitchen of brightly painted units a traditional bread oven has been hewn into the thick wall. This rusticity blends perfectly with smart floors of polished wood and tastefully upholstered furnishings to create an ambiance that is both comfortable and unique.

The housekeeper will do laundry when required.
