Floor-to-ceiling patio windows line the entire width of the sleek façade of this contemporary home to perfectly capture the absorbing panorama that spreads out before it. Providing a bird’s eye view across the terracotta rooftops of the chic coastal village of Moledo do Minho, they look out towards the shimmering waters of the nearby sea, which stretch out ahead to meet the horizon and form the stunning picture-postcard vista that can be enjoyed from almost every part of this attractive coastal residence.

Nestling against a backdrop of woodland on the hillside at the back of the village, it will come as no surprise that Casa do Monte do Moledo occupies one of the most sought after locations along this wonderfully unspoilt coastline. A walk of just over 2km downhill along the charming cobbled lanes that snake their way through the village’s higgledy-piggledy homes brings you to the sweeping beach of fine golden sand, which is backed by dunes and a selection of cafes and restaurants.

For those seeking more seclusion, a range of picturesque rural beaches line the shores both to the north and south, whilst the other charming waterfront villages of Vila Praia de Ancora, Afife and Caminha are all within a short drive.

Inside the house, a neat and up-to-the-minute décor of polished wooden floors and ceilings, pastel coloured walls and smart furnishings combine to create a comfortable and welcoming ambience in rooms that are bathed in light and look out towards the sea. With the living room, kitchen and every bedroom opening out onto the wood decked terrace that spans the property’s ocean facing façade, access to the pretty garden that encircles the house is easy. Its well kept lawns, shaded in places by mature foliage, slope gently down towards the swimming pool, which sits within a wood decked terrace and enjoys glorious views towards the water.

There are 24 steps leading up from the parking area to the house.
The internet connection is delivered by MiFi, which is via a mobile network device.

Location of Casa do Monte do Moledo


Great Things to Do Near Casa do Monte do Moledo

Island of Insua

Take a boat from Foz over to the island of Insua which you will see from Moledo beach. The building on the island was originally a convent in the 15th century but was converted in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fortress. Its position at the mouth of the River Minho meant it was the perfect vantage point to control access to the river.

Pop down to the beach

The lovely white sands of Moledo are just 1.5km from the house. When you feel the need for some refreshment, a number a smart snack bars lie just behind the beach and form the ideal setting for having a drink whilst looking out to sea and watching the world go by.

Take a trip back in time

at the Medieval Fair held at the end of July in Caminha. Costumes, music, food, dancing, horse shows and theatrical displays - everything goes Medieval in this delightful town for these few days. There are lots of arts and crafts to look at or buy too. This is one of the best festivals in Portugal!

Visit the tiny harbour of Vila Praia de Ancora

the next coastal town just a short drive down the coast. For a gastronomic feast, be sure to buy some of the fresh fish you will see being landed there to cook on your barbecue at home

Stroll around the streets of Caminha

Walk around the narrow cobbled streets of Caminha to discover some of the beautiful old stone houses, many built over a century ago. Some have the family's coat of arms engraved into the walls, while others are adorned with attractive tiles and have wonderful old wooden doors or iron gates.

Wander round the old village of Moledo

Explore the cobbled streets of this old village and admire the views and the interesting architecture. It's a great way to meet the friendly neighbours too!

Picnic by the river

The winding River Coura meanders down to Caminha and offers many delightful spots for picnicking. In Paredes da Coura there are areas to dive and safe pools for children.

Take a boat ride with the local fishermen

from Foz do Minho (Mouth of the Minho) which lies just 5 km south-west of Caminha. Local fishermen are on hand to take tourists to the ruined island fortress of Ínsua Fort, which houses a former Franciscan convent and church where the cloisters and chapel can still be seen.

Hire Surfboards

at the beach of Afife and spend a day in the water on this lovely unspoilt coastline, a much sought after spot for keen surfers. Moledo beach is another top spot for surfers.

Take the train from Moledo to Viana do Castelo

Travel along the scenic railway line then explore the beautiful city of Viana do Castelo. The historical centre is mostly pedestrianised and is where most of the best buildings and shops are to be found. Take the elevator up to the Basilica of Santa Luzia which was inspired by the Sacré Coeur in Paris. From the basilica there are spectacular views of the city and the beach.

Follow the Vinho Verde wine trail

along the banks of the Minho Valley which passes between undulating hills covered with the vines which produce the lightly sparkling and very tasty wine of the region.

Souvenir hunting....

The people of the Alto Minho still continue with many ancients handicrafts passed down through generations. Viana do Castelo is renowned for its colourfully embroidered festival dresses, lace and pottery. But almost everywhere you can visit small artesanal workshops where weaving, basketwork, lacework, wood carving and toys are still made using traditional methods.

Feel closer to nature in the National Park of Peneda-Geres.

Drive for miles through the largely undiscovered beautiful mountain scenery of this stunning area of natural beauty. Whilst you are unlikely to meet another car, watch out for the mountain goats, who have right of way!

Hop over to Spain

A ferry runs between Caminha and A Guarda in Spain or cross the river on the bridge from Vila Nova da Cerveira. A Guarda is regarded as one of the best places in Galicia to try seafood. Then visit the Celtic village of Santa Tecla at the top of the hill beside A Guarda - there are some great views.

Spend a day in Ponte de Lima, one of Portugal's oldest towns.

Spreading lazily along the tree-line banks of the river Lima, this is a beautiful town, with fine buildings and pretty cobbled squares. Visit on a Monday morning and you may be fortunate enough to witness the local market, which is held on the sandy river beach every other week.

Visit historic Braga

.....The city that will get to heaven first. The cathedral is the seat of the Primate of all Portugal and his magnificent palace is at the heart of the town.

Discover the Serra d'Arga

Serra d’Arga is a protected area which rises to nearly 900 metres. For the more energetic, there are a number of way-marked trails taking walkers through majestic scenerypassing lagoons and waterfalls and different types of fauna, such as the Iberian frog and the Garrano horses which roam freely in the mountain. In the heart of the Serra lie 8 villages which still preserve their local traditions and architecture.
