Portugal Minho Braga Amares villa Solar Boucas Casa Montariol Outside

Amares Villa - On a wine producing estate on the river Cavado near Amares in Minho north Portugal.

Solar das Boucas Overview
This attractive cottage has given its name to one of the wines produced at the nearby winery from the grapes grown in the vineyards surrounding the cottage.

A walk through the 30 hectares of beautifully tended vineyards brings you to the wide River Cavado. It makes a very pleasant walk down to its banks with the vines covering the estate road and then along to the weir and the old water mill.

When the grapes are ready in September, this peaceful location is transformed by the bustle of the 'vindima', the wine harvest, as the grapes are picked and the tractors bring them to be pressed in the winery. Everyone is welcome to join in this activity.

The manor house is a short walk away and guests at the cottage are welcome to use the swimming pool

Lower floor: The door from the patio outside leads into the old kitchen which still has the traditional bread oven in the corner.

Steps lead down into a large kitchen with a breakfast table.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a cooker, microwave, washing machine, dishwasher and refrigerator.

The large open plan living room has an upper area with dining table and steps leading down to the sitting area which has an open fireplace, television and a music centre. Doors lead out to the garden area.

Upper floor: A double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and views down towards the river.

A twin bedroom with an en suite shower room.

A second twin bedroom has a bathroom across the passage.

There is a vine covered patio suitable for outside dining while using the barbecue.

There is a private lawned area on the south side of the cottage which has views over the vineyards to the river.

The pool at the Manor House is 12 metres long and 5,5 metres at its widest point. The depth is 2.2 m to 1.1 m and there are integral steps leading down into the pool. Nearby there is a lawn with a vine covered sitting area where the estate wines can be enjoyed in the heat of the day.

The cottage forms part of the estate of Solar das Boucas. You should take the opportunity to ask the owner, Baron de Van Zeller, to show you the altarpiece that he has recently commissioned for the chapel.

It is 10 miles from Braga, the religious capital of Portugal and 15 miles from the National Park of Peneda Geres.

The Ponte de Lima golf course is about 15 miles away.

The villa was lovely as was the setting. Our whole family enjoyed the stay there with the only criticism being the fireworks. They lasted for five days and went off at all times of the day, sometimes every 15 minutes and late into the night which when you have a small baby to get to sleep can be a problem. I think when the festival is on it would be good just to let future visitors know. They can then be prepared. The staff were excellent and despite the sleepless nights we would certainly think about coming back although avoiding the festival !! Thank you for ensuring the house and pool etc were of such a good quality.
