We had a very nice stay in the house in Luso. Our extended family of 8 found everything that we needed and very much enjoyed our stay. The town, Luso, it a bit off of the beaten track and if we wanted to see nearby towns (like Cumbria) it was a bit of a travel (about 30-40 minutes), but the house was great for a laid back holiday where sightseeing was secondary.
We spent the last week in July 2013 in Quinta together with our 3 children - it is a very naturally beautiful place that feels that great love and craftsmanship have gone into every aspect of the house and grounds.
The house is quite cosy and full of charm and character. Very nice bathrooms and good beds - very clean and comfortable. Pool was the second home and a very welcome escape when weather hot.
The kids made great use of the ample grounds and especially the crazy golf and table tennis. The views and sense of tranquility are very special.
The surrounding area was also a real pleasure with the local restaurant offering fantastic roast venison and veal. Local hikes are a little more difficult than we expected but very worthwhile.
Porto was a great day trip as was Aveiro, we would definitely recommend to any family looking to escape to a rural idyll and who just want to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures in a beautiful setting.
