QUINTA DE SANTA COMBA - VÁRZEA, BARCELOS
In the heart of Minho, in the village of Crujães, 5 km from Barcelos, you will find Quinta de Santa Comba. This beautiful 18th century house offers a country and family atmosphere, framed by the stables and the cowshed. The granite veranda, with huge beams, typically rural, invites us to a beautiful chapel. The owner of the house is welcoming and the service is of quality, having at your disposal fresh local products.
This farm, which produces the famous Verde wine (vinho Verde), is owned by Jorge Henrique Carvalho de Campos, who welcomes us in a revivalist atmosphere, with a lively Minho tradition. In order to do so, he has taken care of the available space so as to provide his guests with three double rooms and three twin rooms, served by a living room and a kitchen, all accompanied by a warm welcome.
The beautiful garden integrates a refreshing swimming pool, with green shadows, a careful refuge space. There is a library for those who love reading.
