Neighbourhood

Casa de Fontaínhas lies on the slopes of the river Ancora valley in the lovely village of Orbacém, a 10 min. drive to the small fishing port of Vila Praia de Ancora.Not far off is Viana do Castelo ( the region ´s most important historical market town ) and the 50 km long Costa Verde with its many fine sandy beaches.
In the village itself there is a café nearby a widw range of shops, restaurants and other amenities. The area is also full of many other historic towns and quaint villages, and the Serra de Arga mountain range rises immediatly behind.
The wild national park is a short drive away. The whole area is still quite untouched by mass tourism , and visitors are always delighted by the traditional style of local life that seems to belong to another era.

Arrivals and departures

The village is very easily accessible from Porto ( 45 min. from the airport ) and a new motorway network provides fast access south inland and north to Spain ( 20km. )
There´s also a railway connection to Vila Praia de Ancora , on the main Porto- Spain line.
However a car is recommended if you plan to explore the region.

Other information

Other places of interest to visit nearby include Caminha ( facing across the river Minho to Galicia in Spain and from which there is a cheap car ferry to and fro), Ponte de Lima (considered the oldest town in Portugal ) Braga, Guimarães and Valença
This single story farm house built in the local stone was restored from its ruined state some 20 years ago , and has been very popular holiday destination over all those years.

This location in country Portugal is absolutely stunning -- and an amazing swimming pool too! The fridge was full of food when we arrived, which was great because we were unprepared! That was a very nice touch. Thanks again.
