Casa do Monte was built to be used during the weekends, to get away from all the city stress, enjoying everything that nature has to offer. This beautiful country house is idyllically situated on a small hill above the village of vila cova near Penafiel.
The rustic look of this house is ment to put it into the village structure, without changing the hill and its vegetation. Every product of this little farm is not intent to bring any profit, but only to be used by the ones in the house.
The surroundings are wonderful - peace and quiet on the slopes of a wooded hillside with nearly 2 acres of it just for you! Add to this the good-sized pool, fitted barbecue, pine built sauna and tennis court .
Two km away is the river beach at Abragão on the river Tâmega, and in Penafiel there is a riding centre and school. Oporto and the coast are only 40km west, making it convenient for a day's trip to the beach.
The river Douro is also not far away: every day boats coming from Oporto sail up the river and you can always enjoy the beautiful views of douro valley by going on board at the docks of Vila Nova de Gaia.
Casa do Monte offers a spacious living/dining-room with television, video, stereo, double sofa bed, fireplace, table tennis and a splendid countryside views. At the first floor there are one double bedroom with bathroom , two double bedrooms, one bedroom with twin beds, one family bathroom and also another bedroom with en-suite shower room near the kitchen(all bathrooms with cold and hot water). Casa do Monte provides also a typical and fully equiped kitchen with a traditional oven, gas-cooker, toaster, microwave and fridge.
