AltaVista

AltaVista

In this house no have clients, have friends.

AltaVista is high in the hills in the tiny traditional village of Carreiras, way off the beaten track but conveniently close to the beautiful historic town of Ponte de Lima. The house is a mix of ancient and contemporary, with plenty of traditional character from the past sympathetically updated with modern comforts. Its rural setting offers calm and the abundant pleasures of unspoiled nature, with walks through the surrounding meadows and hillsides, and spectacular views as far as Braga 30km to the south.

The meadows around the house are grazed by sheep, goats, and rabbits, the sound of running water from mountain springs is everywhere, and the skies are full of curlews, partridges, hoopoes, swallows, jays, buzzards and kites. Just a few steps from the door, you are into tranquil countryside where you can leave your day-to-day cares behind.

Each bedroom is decorated individually, and you can choose between historic ambience and a humorously modern style. Many traditional architectural features are retained, such as the enormous granite kitchen chimney and fireplaces, and there are spacious dining and sitting rooms.

Providing a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, AltaVista offers accommodation in Vitorino dos Piães. Complimentary WiFi is provided. All units comprise a seating area, a dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen with various cooking facilities, including a dishwasher, an oven, a microwave and a toaster.
