About

Casa de Panque

Just 15km (9,3 miles) away from Barcelos, a city known for its Rooster and the Weekly Market, Casa de Panque is the result of the restoration of a typical Minho house. A few meters away from the beautiful and calm Neiva River, it has a garden with a pool, a playground, and a small football (soccer) field.

It has 4 bedrooms, enough for 8 people, fully equipped kitchen, dining and living room. The outside has a meal space with barbecue.

There’s TV, DVD player, and Internet access.

Activities in the area include biking, fishing, hiking, and swimming in the Neiva River.

It’s only a few kilometres away from the beautiful towns of Ponte de Lima, Braga, and Viana do Castelo, from the beach and from the National Park of Peneda-Gerês.

Its proximity to Guimarães and Oporto, cities classified as UNESCO World Heritage, make it an excellent place for a nice holiday.

Perfect holiday 10/10

If we could transfer this property next to the beach it would be unaffordable… If you would go on a holiday and only think about the house or property this one should be on your list! Besides that you have more than friendly and generous owners who do everything they can to make your stay as nice as possible. The owners asked us which improvements they can make and we couldn´t mention any, I think this says enough. Hugo, Nuno, their family (including the grandfather 😉 ) – thanks a lot for the great holiday (3 weeks) we had at your house, we will come back next year! The swimming pool is one of the best you can have, the property gives you the feeling of being a landlord, a football field is there, … everything you need… top choice if you want to have a relaxing holiday at the north of Portugal.

Hidden treasure in North Portugal

We stayed in Casa de Panque the last 2 weeks of July. It is a fantastic property. The pictures don’t even show how big the property is. We were there with 2 families, with 3 children aged 7 and 8. There was plenty of outdoor space for them to play. The swimming pool and the soccer-field were used every day! The house and garden are maintained to a high standard, everything you need is there. The owners are very friendly and helpfull. A true example of good hospitality. They speak several languages. We had a problem with the dishwasher and it was fixed the same day! Also the owners gave us a lot of tips on where to go. Overall i would definately recommend this property to anyone!

Amazing Treasure

If you don’t like amazing seafood, great prices, vineyards, hiking, charming villages and a restored house surround by vine-yards, then stay away!!! My husband, teenage daughter and I travel a lot and every three years rent a house with our best friends. Well, this was the year and Portugal was the location. It was my job to find the villa, so there was a lot of pressure to find something as wonderful as we’d had in Umbria. Well, this house was beyond everyone’s expectations. The first thing is the owners are some of the most generous and kind people I have ever met. The house was clearly a labor of love, restored to it’s original glory but updated so you have all the modern conveniences. Great showers, wonderful kitchen, two outdoor eating areas and a pool we spend hours and hours in. We grilled outside with fare we bought from the local market in Barcelos. We spent 11 nights in Casa de Panque and none of us wanted to leave. The neighbor brought over lemons and tangerines, the people in the local market made us feel like I had lived there forever. The living space is generous and opens up onto a delightful out door area. I am trying to find something negative to say but am struggling! Great location, it is near local sights and yet quiet and really immersed in Portugal, not some tourist area. We drove somewhere new almost everyday, hiked, swam and enjoyed our home away from home. I highly recommend it.
