Lovely cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cozy cottage. We loved our stay in St Peters Cottage. We had everything we could need in terms of the kitchen bathroom bedroom. The garden and outdoor kitchen were clean and safe for our little boy and as there was an electronic gate we were happy to leave him unsupervised in the garden.

We enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and had a lovely walk on the river. We also visisted the local restaurant Escuduo (I hope that this is correct)

Cristina was a lovely host and was genuinely welcoming and kind.

This cottage comes highly recommemded and we would come back again if we had the chance.

Thank you Cristina Mary Mark and James xx

A beautiful part of Portugal unspoilt and friendly people

  • 5 of 5

St Peters Cottage was in a lovely village close to the river , and not too far away from some lovely beaches, easily accessible were different towns and places of interest also available was a bakery and convenience store, farmacia and a few cafe bars. Lots of walks by the river.

It was easy to drive to Spain about 20 minutes.

The property was well maintained and Cristina was a lovely host and very kind there was plenty of information in the cottage and Cristina was only a phone call away. It certainly fulfilled all our expectations and more.

Kath and Dave.

Awesome HomeAway in Northern Portugal

  • 5 of 5

We drove into town thinking we may have selected too small a village. Stopping into a small cafe/bar near the train station we inquired into the location of the property. Cafe owners Astride and Mario called Christina for us and she immediately met us at the cottage. She was enthusiastic, well prepared, and thorough. We felt at home. We got to know her, her son, and several local people. It could not have been a better experience. The cottage was clean, well stocked, comfortable, cozy, had a desperately needed washing machibe, and a great veranda (now well used by us!) We had a great time with everyone we met. Can you imagine that her 4 year old has been asking "where the grandparents went?"

tranquilidade, simpatia, qualidade

  • 5 of 5

Fomos muito bem recebidos e acomodados, onde a simpatia e dedicação estiveram sempre presentes.

O espaço é muito acolhedor e confortável, com uma envolvência que permitem relaxar completamente e fica muito próximo de grandes cidades e de boas praias.

É, sem qualquer dúvida, um local a regressar.

Casa típica muito acolhedora com espaço exterior.

  • 5 of 5

Ótima localização: local calmo, mas com bons acessos. Casa rústica, mas com todas as comodidades. Tem uma cozinha moderna e totalmente equipada. A proprietária foi muito prestável e simpática e inclusivé, ofereceu-nos algumas iguarias locais! O espaço exterior é muito agradável! A sala de estar fica ainda mais acolhedora com a salamandra em dias frios!
