House and surroundings
Casa de Gandufe is situated a few kilometers from the village of Guilhofrei, not far from the reservoir of Ermal. This former farm is tastfully rebuilt as a comfortable holiday house, suitable for 6 people. It stands at the end of a cobble stone road, conveniently situated for those who are looking for privacy.
Next to the house is a patio with a long table and benches, shaded by vines – a most pleasant spot for warm afternoons or late summer evenings! Steps lead up to a lovely garden and the swimming pool with a sunny terrace. The pool has a shallow end and is therefore suitable for smaller children. The garden and terrace also have child gates. From the pool area and the veranda at the side of the house you have a beautiful view over the valley and the lake.
In the small town of Vieira do Minho (10 km) are all kinds of shops, a supermarket, cafés and restaurants, a health care centre, banks, the post office and a large weekly market.
The nearest restaurant is only 2 km from the villa on the road to Guilhofrei. Nearby - a 10 minute walk - is a small grocery shop. Along the reservoir are beaches and nice places to swim, you can rent canoes and pedalos, and there is also a facility for cable water-skiing called Tele-Ski.
The distance to Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage) is about 30 km, to the centre of Braga 35 km, and to the lake Caniçada at the foot of the impressive Peneda-Gerês national park 20 km.
