House and surroundings
Casa da Batoca is a former farmhouse on the edge of the hamlet of Tabuadela. It has been nicely renovated and converted into a holiday villa for 6 people. The villa has ample space, is completely furnished and offers everything for a pleasant stay.
You reach the garden through the outer staircase or through the inner yard. Close by the house, next to an old pear tree, is a terrace with a dining table and chairs and a barbecue. At the other side are the swimming pool and the sun deck, and beyond a large lawn and a playing field. If you prefer the shade you can seek out the covered patio in the inner yard.
From the house and the pool area you have lovely views over a small, green valley. Behind the hills is the reservoir of Ermal.
At the nearby lake are several beaches and nice places to swim. There is also a facility for cable waterskiing called Tele-Ski (3 km). The nearest access to the water is a few hundred metres from the house. In the vicinity are also good opportunities for walking or mountain biking.
The distance to the small town of Vieira do Minho is only 4 km. There are all kinds of shops including 2 supermarkets, cafés, restaurants, banks, many other facilities, and a large weekly market.
There are more possibilities for water sports at the large reservoir of Caniçada, at the foot of the impressive national park Peneda-Gerês. You can rent canoes, pedalos, motor boats, jet skis or learn how to water ski.
The distance to the city of Braga is about 35 km, and to Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage) 30 km.
