O' REFUGIO - LARGE LUXURIOUS VILLA WITH POOL NEAR PORTO CITY

Vila do Conde Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 1 WC, sleeps 10 (+ 4)

Beautiful Manor House, with 400m2, very private, also extremely well located for excursions both up and down the Costa Verde being about 120km from Spain and 20km from Oporto. If you like dinning beside the River Douro at Ribeira, 20 minutes it's how long it takes once you get use to the roads. Outside there is a 10 x 5m swimming pool, toilet, shower and a large covered sitting area, which is useful during peak sun hours where you can enjoy your meals and watch the kids in the pool. If you prefer the beach, Praia D'AREIA is only 2km down the road where you also find small shops. Restaurants, supermarkets and all amenities are available 5km in the town of Vila do Conde, including the famous 'MARKET' on Fridays. The grounds with 10000m2 are ideal and safe for children to run around. There are also orange, lemon, kiwi and passion fruit trees in the garden from which, subject to season, you can help yourself and make lovely juices.

We now have the METRO near us which can take you to various places, Airport, Vila do Conde, Porto city, and the F.C.Porto stadium Estadio do Dragao. The nearest station is ARVORE on Line B ( red line) and it's 10min walk from the house.

very nice "hidden" villa

in a small village near "the end of the world" behind a high wall there is a lovely tasteful und luxury villa with a fine pool and a big area to relax!

The kitchen is well equipped, the rooms are big enough and the bath rooms are very fine!

And Ana Pires and her family are pleasing renters who welcome you very familiar!

Thanks to all!

The only two things who prevent a fifth star is the noise of the passing aeroplanes and the wild traffic where you have to be veeeeery careful when You leave the house entering the street to the Metro (which is very modern and cheap!).
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. There is some small noise from aeroplanes on certain days which sometimes is more noticeble when the weather is bad, but nobody has complained before as it being a problem. The traffic on the road is normal and the house is set back behing a wall but as the road has no walking pavements you have to be careful when stepping out of the gate as you step straight onto the road.

Fabulous Villa, space, garden, pool near Porto

We felt so lucky that we booked this villa! Near Porto, near the coast and even a small backery round the corner. The house is beautiful furnished with lots of space. We were with 8 people, no problem at all. The garden is enormous, very nice trees and a great pool. Everything is very private, nobody bothered us. When we arrived there was a welcome basked with lots of fresh fruit and a bottle of Port with 8 glasses. We recommend this villa absolutely to everyone who likes a bit of privicy, lots of space, interesting places nearby, a well equiped kitchen, beautiful wooden closets, and last but not least a veranda to relax on in the shade. 5 stars is the least !!!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, me and my team aim to help and make your holiday as pleasant as possible and if you decide to come again we will be happy to see you.

Our party consisted of 8 adults (ages 30 to 65) and one child (age 8).
In spite of our very late arrival due to flight delays, we received a warm
welcome from the house rep. Joao.Food and beverages in the fridge, a lovely
platter of fruit and a decanter of Port wine on the kitchen counter. He also
took the time to drive us around the area and the nearby town.
The villa and grounds are beautiful. Leaving the busy, narrow, cobble-stoned
street and driving through the gates is like entering a different world!
We enjoyed lazy days by and in the pool, cooking in the big ,well equipped
kitchen, and the outdoor BBQ. The bakery (5 min walk) provided us with
fresh rolls for breakfast. Several trips to Porto (easy by Metro), Braga and
the Bom Jesus church( don't miss it!), a visit to Ponte d. Lima were among
the highlights of our stay.
The home owner, Ana Maria, made the whole rental process so pleasant and easy. All necessary information was provided, including detailed directions on how to get to O'Refugio. Joao was very helpful during our stay,
We loved Portugal, and we loved staying at the villa. It met every expectation !
Thank you from all of us!

Owner's Response: Its a pleasure to help and I am glad that we contributed to your pleasant holiday and hope that you can recommend it to your friends and family. Best regards. Ana

Great fun!

We had a brilliant stay at O Refugio.
Although we were a young group and the reviews recommended it for older groups we had a great time. We loved the size of the house and the grounds it was set on, especially the pool and the orchard.
We didn't have a car so we relied on the metro to go to the supermarket and travel to and from the airport which worked well.
We would recommend it to people of any age, with a house so big and so much to do there (table tennis, table football, pool) it doesn't matter that it's set in a quiet village.
Thank you for having us to stay!

Our stay was perfect, the villa is very roomy and especially very clean. We were 9 people and we almost got lost in the house!
All the kitchen utensils are at our disposal. it does not miss anything.
To gather the fruits directly on the trees, as of the morning, is a pure happiness.
The house is ideally located: markets are in the vicinity, beach to 800m and 2 subway stations to 500m.
Lastly, the approachs of A to Z for the reservation occurred very well, the owners, as well as the people coming to accommodate to us, are very nice.
I recommend this villa highly!
