The Yavanna property is made up of three granite houses, converted from 300 year old farm buildings, set in the tranquil hamlet of Insua, in the Minho region of Northern Portugal and only a few miles from the border with Galicia in Spain. From these ruins this delightful holiday retreat was created in a traditional Portuguese style, with modern comforts.
Casa Dolinda and Casa Gabriel are available for holiday rentals all year round – each has three bedrooms and are individually styled to offer a blend of contemporary features in a traditional Minho farmhouse setting. Come here to experience peace and quiet in the beautiful rural setting and enjoy our large salt water pool and our beautifully landscaped gardens with plenty of seating, hammocks, BBQ areas and table tennis.
There are numerous activities to enjoy in the local area, such as road cycling, mountain biking, surfing, kayaking and hiking, as well as visits to nearby towns in Portugal and Spain that are steeped in history. Yavanna’s village, Fontoura, lies on the Pilgrim's way, the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. You can fly to Porto in only 2 hours from Heathrow, Gatwick, Bristol, Birmingham, Stansted or Liverpool, as well as from other European airports. You can then reach Yavanna in just over an hour.
