Oporto villa Portugal Minho - O Refugio in Arvore near Vila do Conde is a village villa with swimming pool north of Porto

O Refugio Overview
O Refugio is surrounded by an acre of beautiful gardens in the extensive grounds of a large farming estate in the Minho region of Northern Portugal. The house incorporates part of the original grain store and has recently been renovated to provide comfortable and secluded accommodation for up to ten people.

The property is in the village of Arvore, three kilometres from the Atlantic beaches, and seventeen kilometres from Porto. This vibrant city is the capital of the north, and is classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. No visit to this city would be complete without walking along the Cais de Ribeira and across the breathtaking iron bridge to the Port Wine lodges lining the river bank at Gaia, (most lodges offer free tours and tastings).

For those wishing to escape the city, the nearby beaches guarantee peace and quiet, and the little fishing village of Vila do Conde has a pretty medieval quarter worth exploring and a busy Friday market.

The two storey accommodation at O Refugio comprises, on the ground floor, a sitting room with an open fireplace, easy chairs, TV, music centre, and doors onto the terrace.

There is an adjacent dining room, and a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast table, gas cooker, dishwasher, microwave, etc. A door leads out to the terrace and pool area. There is a laundry room with washing machine etc, and a separate WC.

On the ground floor there is a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, suitable for one adult or two children.

On the first floor there is a master double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with jaccuzzi, and a balcony overlooking the pool and garden.

There are an additional two double bedrooms overlooking the garden, and a twin bedded room overlooking the patio. There is a separate bathroom with WC, bath, and shower.

Two cots are available on request.

The swimming pool, which is 10 metres long and 5 metres wide, is set in a large terrace surrounded by orange trees.

There is a partially covered terrace for those wishing to avoid the afternoon sun, a barbecue, and tables and chairs for outdoor dining.

What can I say - words cannot do it justice, you have to see it and live in it, if only for a few days to appreciate what a fantastic property this is. Great location and fab bakery around the corner.Celebrated my 50th birthday with fab friends and sisters - it was a treat. Didn't want to leave. Hoping to return again soon and maybe stay a bit longer. Thanks to your family for making us feel welcome.

We were more than impressed as we pulled up outside. No photos could do it justice! We were greeted by 2 members of the family who were so welcoming. It just got better and better as we were shown around. There was just so much space and each room was tastefully decorated. Excellent!! You won't be disappointed..
