About the neighbourhood
Quiet (OK, you can hear our neighbour's mower and an occaisional train or sometimes a plane flying very high above us, but very little else). Clean air. Clean river water. The views are of Spain, across the river, which is protected now from development by a joint Spanish / Portuguese convention. A few houses near us, but not many, and no-one overlooks our grounds. There are plenty of walks, and it is a very short drive into town. We are in a suburb of an antique town. It has many cafes and restaurants, plus banks, a post office and weekly market. Late July to early September, and also December and Easter is festival time in town. There is a road bridge across to Spain; it takes 3 to 5 minutes to get there and cross (no border check points or Customs controls, sometimes / rarely police... more
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Porto: 130.0 km
Railway: Valenca: 18.0 km
Ferry: Santander / Bilbao: 620.0 km
There is also Vigo Airport in Spain, just 20 minutes drive (30 Km) away. Though most people will probably fly into Porto Airport.

The drive from Porto Airport to our property is one of the most scenic motorway routes there is. Once you get past Braga (well worth a visit), there is very little traffic even during peak times, and you drive through mountains and over river valleys. It is a toll route, but no so expensive.

There are many car rental companies at both Porto and Vigo airports, plus a Herz rental agent in town.

The route is easy enough from Porto Airport; just follow the signs for Braga / Valenca, then Valenca, then Moncao. We are on the Eastern side of Moncao, near Desportivo Moncao (local football ground), on the River Minho.
Activities nearby
Fishing Nearby, There Is A Golf Course Within 30 Mins Drive, Horse Riding Nearby, Watersports Nearby, Nearest Beach: 0.2 km.
