A short drive inland from the picturesque riverside town of Vila Nova de Cerveira, a landscape of rolling hillside and extensive woodland provides the setting of this attractive stone retreat. Tucked away at the end of a cobbled lane on the edge of the hamlet of Gondar, the property enjoys an uninterrupted panorama of the surrounding slopes whilst at the same time being a short stroll from the amenities of the local shop.
The charming rooms of the rustic interior are full of character. Beamed ceilings combine with wooden floors and open stone fireplaces to create a traditional feel, whilst the far reaching views that surround the house are framed by picture windows, set into walls of thick stone. Nonetheless, modern comforts are by no means in short supply, with the well appointed kitchen housing a comprehensive selection of appliances and the pretty bathrooms being very much up-to-date.
Outside, a pretty stone terrace is backed by sweeping lawns where lies the swimming pool, surrounded by spectacular views. A short stroll along a cobbled lane to the back of the house brings you to the local hamlet of Gondar with its small shop, whilst for a wider range of amenities, the attractive border town of Valença with its fortified walls and cobbled streets is a 10 minute drive. The unspoilt dune-backed beaches south of Vila Nova de Cerveira can be reached in 20 minutes.
