Where is it?
Afife is a sprawling seaside village circa 12kms from the historic city of Viana do Castelo, 90 Kms form Oporto and 75 kms from the town of Vigo in Galicia Spain. Afife has 3 restaurants, a chemist open 9am-12 midnight, a large ocean front with a beautiful beach where one can take long walks and watch the sunset. There is also 1 small supermarket for everyday shopping plus a large supermarket on the main road to Caminha, circa 3 kms from our home. The beautiful pilgrimage old town of SANTIAGO de COMPOSTELA in Galicia-Spain is only 180 kms away, less than a 2 hours drive on the motorway.
To make the most of your stay you will need to hire a (small) car.
Sometimes by previous arrangement and petrol and toll expenses and if I am in Portugal then I might be free to drive you around, last year this worked out fine with a woman from Denmark traveling on her own who stayed here for 10 days. We are very flexible regarding all reasonable proposals and requests.
From here you can also explore the Atlantic coast of northern Spain, Galicia.
Or explore northern Portugal: you can take day trips by car to visit old historical towns such as Guimarães, Braga, Ponte de Lima, and of course Oporto which is Portugal's second biggest city. You can also go on a Douro River trip to see the Port wine vineyards.
We can also help you organize a trip up the River Douro to see the magnificent Port wine vineyards, we would highly recommend this trip even though you'd probably have to stay overnight in a hotel to get the most of your trip up river. Count on two extra days for your stay if you think you would like to go up the Douro!
