House and surroundings
Casa de Cortegaça is situated in the hamlet of Pinheiro (municipality of Vieira do Minho), close to the foothills of the Serra da Cabreira.
This former farmhouse dates back to 1739, and was extended in 1998 and later in 2018 completely restored into a luxury holiday villa. The house is modernly renovated to provide guests a comfortable experience without losing its rural characteristics.
The house consists of 2 floors, on the ground floor you will find an indoor heated swimming pool with views to the garden, a fitness space and a Jacuzzi. Next to the pool, there is a relax room with a fire place and TV, and a games room with pool billiard.
On the first floor there is a spacious living/dining room, a modern, completely equipped kitchen and 4 double bedrooms. Two with a private bathroom (with shower). The other 2 bedrooms have a shared bathroom (also with a shower).
The landscaped garden has a lawn and a partially covered terrace with barbecue, where you can enjoy a nice meal or just a drink profiting from the shadow on a hot day.
A nice feature in the back of the garden is an old water mill, which is part of the property.
The nearest town is Vieira do Minho (12 km, all facilities), with a lively centre, a choice of restaurants and a large weekly market (Monday).
The reservoir of Ermal, with opportunity to cable water skiing ("Tele-Ski") is about 6 km from Pinheiro; the large reservoir of Caniçada at the foot of the famous Peneda-Gerês National park is about 12 km.
