A Fun Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and would heartily recommend the house to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday, with easy access to Porto and other places of interest. The location is simply stunning, the pool is great and there are plenty of good restaurants, bars and shops within easy reach. The owner is very friendly and will give you helpful tips on the area.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in June 2016.

We received a very warm welcome, Alexander and Miguel met us close to the house, luckily, because we never would have found it on our own...

Once we got there, the house was a revelation.

It's even better than it looks in the pictures and the view is amazing.

It's the perfect spot for hikers, and ideal for a relaxed holiday by the (wonderful) pool, it's very private and quiet.

If you start to miss the hustle and bustle, it's just a fifteen minute drive

to Marco de Canaveses where you find a collection of supermarkets.

A rental car is essential, and there are many excellent day-tripping opportunities in Northern Portugal.

The house has everything you need and is clean and tidy.

The only down-side (for us) were the beds, because the mattresses are very hard. We ended up using the sofa bed.

Communication during booking was very quick and efficient, always a plus.

We would like to thank Alexander and his family for a wonderful stay.

La maison est isolée, sans vis à vis, donc très calme. Le propriétaire nous a donné un point de rendez-vous car la maison est difficile à trouver la première fois.

La piscine et le jardin sont magnifiques. La vue sur la rivière est splendide ! La maison est très propre et tout est bien entretenu. Nous avons passé des vacances idyllique avec nos ados grâce à cette location. Propriétaire chaleureux, nous le remercions pour son accueil.

Un hâvre de paix

  • 5 of 5

Magnifique propriété que nous avons loué 7 jours en juin 2013. Notre hôte nous avait donné un point de rencontre car il était difficile de se rendre seul à la maison. Petit chemin typique des vieux pays pour y accéder. Endroit idéal pour relaxer, tranquille et à l'abri des regards. Maison très propre et bien équipée (cuisine, literie de qualité, belles serviettes). Accueil chaleureux du propriétaire. Près de tout (épicerie, boulangerie, restaurant) et bien situé pour visiter la région (Le Douro, Porto,Guimaraes).

À recommander, vous ne serez pas déçu

We stayed in is cottage last weekend. When we arrived, I was just amazed. The cottage, the garden and the surroundings was even far more beautiful then what I expected after seeing the fotos on the website. The view is just amazing!

Everything you need is present in the cottage, varying from kitchen material to childrens supplies (childrens books, baby bed, chair, etc.).

There were just a few minor aspects: we missed a security fence at the top floor to prevent small kids from falling down the stairs (the children rooms are upstairs). The road to reach the cottage is very steep and sandy. I wouldn't dare to drive on it when it rains. Last, you really have to keep an eye on your (small) children, because the house is on top of a high hill and it's really easy for kids to walk to the edge of it.

Apart from this, we had great weekend and I really recommend this house to anyone who wants to enjoy a quiet weekend in a comfortable house in a beautiful surrounding!

Owner's Response: We are much thankful for your visit and for the excellent feedback we got from your appreciation. It was very useful that you called attention and made us realize the importance of a security fence on the top floor. From now on, a fence will be available whenever there are small children occupying the house. About the access to the cottage, our experience and knowledge of the road tells us that, when it's raining, it might be difficult to go up, especially if the car has more than 3 passengers. But on the other hand, because of being a difficult access, typical and common in the countryside, it also ensures the quietness and absolute privacy of the house and of its surroundings. We are very grateful for your words and positive contribution. We would be honoured and appreciate it a lot if you visited us again soon. Best wishes to all of you, especially to your lovely children. Best regards, A. Vasconcelos.
