The Castle is located 40 minutes from Porto (Francisco Sa Carneiro) airport, with a variety of cultural experiences near the city. You will love this place because of the location, the beautiful grounds and landscaping, the peaceful atmosphere and the unique construction of the house. My house is great for big families (including young children) and large groups of friends who want to disconnect in a quiet environment, while having convenient access to the city center (1.2 miles).
