Villa 258 - Barcelos
This is a charming and careful conversion of a traditional farmer worker's cottage situated alongside a tributary of the Neiva river which runs towards the long sandy beaches of Viana do Castelo. The interior has been comfortably furnished with a range of carefully chosen furnishings, creating a lovely atmosphere. The living room opens onto the pool area and barbecue terrace with table and chairs perfect for al-fresco meals.
