House and surroundings
Quinta do Meira is a large restored farm, set in a rural area not far from Póvoa de Lanhoso. Here you can enjoy the country life, with all the conveniences of a small provincial town at walking distance.
Clustered around the inner yard there are 3 very comfortable apartments. Two of the apartments (numbers 1 and 2; each sleeping 4 people) have their entrance at the back. The third (sleeps 6) is accessed from the inner yard. All three are richly furnished and have every amenity.
Through the inner yard or around the house you have access to the garden and swimming pool (17x6metres). In the garden are all sorts of fruit trees, ancient olive trees, and at several spots stone tables and benches. Bordering the garden is the owners vineyard.
Póvoa de Lanhoso is an excellent starting point to explore Northern Portugal. The driving time to the historic cities of Braga and Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage) and the impressive national park Peneda-Gerês is about half an hour. The beaches and golf courses near Esposende are less than an hour’s drive away.
The distance to the centre of Póvoa is about 1 km. There you will find all kinds of shops, super markets, a choice of restaurants, cafés, banks, a health care centre, and a large weekly market. The most important places of interest are the 12th century castle that you can also see from the quinta, and the reconstructed castro (prehistoric settlement).
