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.

A comfortable cottage with lots of room and amazing views. Attentive host along with a great welcome pack got things off to a great start. Walks available from the door whilst the coast, shops and restaurants are only a short 20-25 minute drive away

We had a beautiful stay in Casa da Fontainha. There is everything you need in your vacation. It was like a little paradise. We enjoyed the nature and the atmosphere in the house. We visited also the Peneda-Geres natural park, which was so beautiful. The owner were so kind and helpful. We will miss the walkings in the nature.

Fijne plek! Je zit zalig in de heuvels in een super rustig gebied. Kwartiertje van het strand en steden met de auto. Prima plek om je vakantie te vieren. Het huis heeft een grote fijne tuin en een zalig zwembad met een schitterend uitzicht. Dat geldt eigenlijk voor elke plek in de tuin. Kortom grandioos!
