Rated No. 1 Holiday Rental in Portugal on Trip Advisor!!! Traditional & rustic, with contemporary comforts. Beautiful gardens and pool. Peaceful and quiet, with beaches, rivers, hiking, cycling and atmospheric towns nearby. Only 10 mins from Spain.


Yavanna is made up of two 300 year old granite farmhouses, Casa Gabriel and Casa Dolinda, set in the tranquil hamlet of Insua, in the Minho region of North West Portugal. Taking its name from the river which runs through it, marking the border with Spain, the Minho is not only stunningly beautiful, but steeped in tradition. For those interested in history, it is rich in centuries old castles, churches and monasteries.

Very much part of a traditional rural community, Yavanna combines the old charm of northern Portugal with the comforts of home. It makes a perfect base from which to enjoy a range of leisure pursuits, pastimes and creative activities.

The property covers about 6000 sq meters (1.5 acres). Our two charming houses providing accommodation for groups up to a maximum of 6 in each are available for holiday rental throughout the year. Smaller groups can also be catered for. We also have a further two extra double en-suite bedrooms, which can be booked by larger groups.

Renowned for its excellent wines, the Minho is also known as `Costa Verde’, or the `Green Coast’. It is a land of warm, open-hearted people, where visitors can enjoy the pleasures of markets, festivals, country fairs and also pilgrimages.

For those who have come simply to get away from it all, lie back in the sun and let Yavanna pamper you! Enjoy our salt swimming pool beside which to enjoy wines from the region and further afield. Rooms offer a blend of contemporary features in a traditional Minho farmhouse setting.

There are numerous activities to enjoy in the local area, such as Road Cycling, Mountain Biking, Surfing, Kayaking, Hiking, Horse Riding, Rafting and Wine Tours.

Come here to experience peace and quiet in the beautiful rural setting. The outside world does not intrude, and the pace of life slows right down. We offer the chance to escape briefly from the pressures of modern life. Those looking for peace, creativity, laughter and the chance to have time for themselves and/or a partner will relish the freedom from noise and frantic activity.

You can fly to Porto in only 2 hours from Heathrow, Gatwick, Birmingham, Stansted or Liverpool, as well as from other European airports. You can then reach Yavanna in just over an hour.

Interazione con gli ospiti

Everyone who visits Yavanna leaves at the end of two weeks realizing they haven't squeezed in half of what they wanted to. Most of the activities available, are "natural" rather than "commercial". There is not much English spoken, so we can help book any of the following. That's if you don't spend too much time relaxing by Yavanna's wonderful salt pool or just swimming at one of the beaches!

The cycling in the area is superb - few cars, good quality roads and amazing scenery. Guided Mountain Biking rides can be organised following cobbled tracks and mountain paths and tracks. Bicycle rentals can be arranged.

There are really good surf schools at nearby beaches. Lessons and surfing gear rental can be arranged.

Kayaking and Rafting are very popular with visiting families. Choose anything from a few hours to a full day trip. Choose between smooth cruising or wild water. We organise these trips through established local companies in Portugal and Spain. Great fun with the kids!

Horse Riding in the area can also be arranged - for beginners or professionals!

The Minho has amazing mountainous walking country, and the Pilgrim's route to Santiago de Compostela runs right through our village, Fontoura. Very special.

There is a range of good local restaurants that we are happy to recommend.

Wonderful place and a great location. The pool is amazing and the garden is full of fresh and tasty fruit and vegetables. We have everything we needed in the kitchen and the rooms are nicely decorated.

Magnifique endroit propice à des vacances reposantes. Très belle vue sur la campagne environnante. Beau jardin avec orangers, citronniers, agapanthes, potager... Grande piscine qui a permis de bonnes baignades contrairement à l'océan qui reste très frais. Le logement était très agréable ouvert sur le jardin et aménagé avec beaucoup de goût. Il est idéalement situé et permet d'explorer facilement le sud de la Galice et le Nord du Portugal (Porto à environ 1h15, St Jacques de Compostelle 1h30). Sofia a été très disponible durant tout notre séjour, soucieuse que tout se passe bien pour nous. Petite attention également à notre arrivée avec panier de produits locaux ou confectionnés par ses soins. Famille avec 3 enfants

Our host made us feel very welcome! Sofia's husband drove to meet us and lead us to our location. A welcome basket of goodies awaited us which we really appreciated. Sofia's husband lead us to the closest grocery store which was a ten minute drive away and waited for us to lead us back. The location of our home was picturesque and the views were stunning.
