CASA DOS ASSENTOS - QUINTIÃES, BARCELOS

This country house beautifully stands amidst its ancestral trees, unexpectedly surprising its guests with two enchanting swimming pools and a charming tennis court.

The name Assentos (house of records) was given to this house as it was once the place where agreements concerning local rents were kept.

Today this splendid manor house remains as an ancestral monument to the 17th century. Its large apartments are traditional stone cottages, with wooden floors and ceilings. The living-room still keeps its traditional granite walls and a comfortable fireplace, comfortable armchairs and an interesting library, turning it into the perfect setting for a great visit. Quiet country elegance and outstanding location make it one of a kind for true nature lovers and art connaisseurs.
