The holiday home Vivenda Rosa is located about 10 km south of Viana do Castelo, at only 3 km. from the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. It is used by the owners and is furnished and decorated in a typical Portuguese style. Most of the visitors of this area are Portuguese, so there are very few foreign tourist around, even in the high season. This holiday-home is located in a typical north portuguese village, quiet with a nice garden for your barbecue or for your children to play around. Worth visiting is the little village of Amorosa, with its nice cafés, restaurants and shopping facilities as well as its beach. The capital of northern Portugal, Porto, is only at a one hours drive (76km.). The beautiful Costa Verde is well worth exploring, as is the river Douro.
