The name O Rosal (The Rose Tree), Pontevedra, perfectly defines the location where it is located. It is an extraordinary enclave on the border of Galicia when it begins to become Portugal, separated only by the Mino River. O Rosal tells us about a beautiful flower that grows in a kind environment and an extraordinary climate. One idea of the mildness of winter is the average temperature in January, the coldest month of the year, which is 10 º C in the area of O Rosal. So there are numerous vineyards of rich white wines, at the southern end of the Rías Baixas appellation, some considered the best white wine in the world.
The Rio Mino Estate
This is the name of this property. Its location is the key to everything: impressive, on the banks of the Mino, surrounded by beaches and hills; but only 60 minutes from the Oporto airport. And 48 minutes from Vigo and its airport.
It is a typical Galician farm carefully restored with very good taste. Located on a plot of 4,000 m2. For 15 years, guests have been staying in a sustained manner, regardless of the area of residential housing. There is great potential for expansion within the current structure and an additional area within the grounds themselves.
Finca Rio Mino comprises a restored and spacious 3 bedroom country house, plus two additional bedrooms in the early stages of construction within the conventional housing. Currently, the accommodation is divided into spacious self-contained accommodation for the owner and an attractive country house with kitchen, living room and two bedrooms with a bathroom.
The accommodation is spacious, with fabulous views of the estuary and the Portuguese hills from most of the rooms and the large elevated outside terrace. On the ground floor, there is a cellar and a large reception area with bar, which is currently used for relaxation of the guests, along with a covered outdoor terrace overlooking the pond, the forest and the nearby Portuguese mountains.
In addition, there are two Scandinavian style country houses, with two bedrooms each. They are located in the lower part of the property. These are the so-called holiday homes.
