Quinta de Casal Maior Overview
This delightful house was built in the mid 18th Century and is a fine example of a large estate farmhouse of the period. Recently restored by the present owners, it offers spacious, comfortable and stylish accommodation.

Quinta do Casal Maior is situated on the outskirts of the village of Lanheses in the Minho region of Northern Portugal. Known as the Costa Verde, this is a rich and fertile land of forests and mountains with green terraces of vineyards and maize stretching down to the golden beaches of the Atlantic Ocean.

It is an area steeped in tradition where mass tourism is unheard of, and life in the countryside has changed little over the years.

For golfers, there is an excellent golf course at Ponte de Lima approximately 18 kilometeres away.

Set in mature gardens with olive and fruit trees for natural shade this comfortable Quinta offers spacious and secluded accommodation.
