Why Carlos Pereira chose Afife
Land of natural charms, minho is one of the oldest Portuguese natural regions. With the sea and the beaches of crystalline and pure water in front of him, and the hills and verdant valleys on his back, was this land that a large part of the Portuguese colonized Brazil from the 18th century. In addition to the magnificent natural environment, the region combines the tradition of pilgrimages to excellence of odd cuisine, able to unseat a banquet in paris. Visitors to the region can observe great part of its natural charms, its valuable cultural heritage, and revive ancient practices that still these days here and there are resisting dizzying change of time. Portugal is characterized for being a country of mild climate and temperate Mediterranean oriented. being a small country portugal their regions are heterogeneous with regard to its climate. Still, because portugal is a country in southern Europe, days of Sun in all seasons. The beaches always highly sought after in late spring, during the summer and winter are also privileged destination for lovers of surfing.

Spacious one bedroom apartment.
This is a good property close to a lovely Atlantic beach that is good for surfing and body boarding. The property is secluded and there is a lovely pool that you share with one other property. The kitchen is sufficient for self catering and there is a supermarket close by. The location is good for exploring North Portugal, including the Lima Valley and the Miho boarder towns. The hosts are friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this property.
Thanks for the opinion.
Im glad you liked
Lovely quiet retreat
Clean modern villa in quiet village with good pool. Plenty of room for 2 (futon for 2 more), and everything you need included. Warm welcome, but then left to enjoy the space. Albert cleaned the pool often and was available to help if needed.
Walking distance of a lovely big beach, plus local shops, pharmacy, cafes and restaurants.
Had a great relaxing break, thank you.
Thank you very much.
Really nice apartment in a nice area.
The self contained apartment is spacious and reasonably well equipped. We had full use of the gardens and swimming pool (not heated). The owners parents are on site but were always helpful and unobtrusive - the basket of fruit was welcome - fresh off of the gardens trees. We were even allowed to park our motorcycle off street in the entrance courtyard.The village of Afife is small but has 4 coffee shops (!) and is a short drive away from the picturesque seaside resorts. A very pretty seaside area well worth exploring as are the mountain roads.
Thank you very much.

This apartment was really a pleasure to stay. It was a little oasis. Clean and with a surprising big swimming pool. A good bed and bedcouch. The tips from the owner beforehand on the area made us feel very welcome. North Portugal is very special. We really can recommend this location. It was near the beaches and good situated for the daily trips. You even can go to Spain.
