An excellent house in a wonderful area

  • 5 of 5

The house is set in a fantastic position right on the beach front next to the launching place for the local fishing boats. From the bedroom on that side of the house you can see endless Atlantic rolling away to the west and equally endless beaches north and south. The noise of the ocean is wonderful. I slept with the windows wide open to hear the full effect - closing the windows reduced the sound to nothing so there isn't a problem for light sleepers. Facing west gave the added bonus of some spectacular sunsets over the ocean.

The house is very well equipped with all that is required. It is beautifully finished with hand-crafted wood paneling and furniture. The effect is very comfortable - a little like a ship's cabin but very spacious.

The immediate area has many small shops, bars, bakers, even a butcher and pharmacy. There are at least half a dozen restaurants within easy walking distance although some were shut during our April visit. We managed to eat in just three of them and all were good. The nearest is just a couple of hundred meter’s walk and has stunning sea views as well as great food.

Our hosts were very attentive and made sure we were comfortable. We were given a tour of the nearest bars and small shops to make sure we would be immediately at home.

During our stay we visited (or revisited) some of Portugal’s magnificent historic cities. Getting into Porto is easy by car or using the Metro. Other places can be reached quickly by motorway or leisurely back roads. Vila Cha is an excellent base from which to explore the northern towns and cities. There are also the shopping opportunities at the Style Outlet – highly recommended.

We fully intend to return!

Nice stay in authentic Portugese fisher village.

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean and well equipped house wih stunning view. Two nice bedrooms with their own bathroom! Owners are very helpfull and easy to reach by phone if you need them.

In the middle of local authentic Portugese community. Very nice restaurant a little further in the street on your right. Good bread in the street on the left, when you are at the restaurant. Porto easy to reach by car. Very nice walks from the house, beautiful flowers, beautiful beaches, especially one on your left just outside the village, stunning!!!!

Very clean with perfect view

  • 5 of 5

We got a warm welcome in a very clean house. Bottle of port, somes toast and marmelade. We were guided around in the house by the owner. The view over sea is exellent. The house is very new and well isolated. Sleeping with the nosy tide comming in is not a problem at all. You are staying in a little fishermen village where it seems if the time stood still. On the departure day we got a little surprise. Thanks for that! Summary: jewel on the Vila Chã coast.

mooi huis direct op het strand in vissersdorp.

  • 5 of 5

Geheel nieuw huis met mooi interieur. Alles perfect in orde. Wifi aanwezig. Bijzonder aardige eigenaar. goede prijs-kwaliteit verhouding. Schoon en compleet.

Gelegen 2 meter van het strand waar s,morgens de vissersbootjes af en aan varen. Dorp heeft diverse winkeltjes veel cafeetjes, voor boodschappen hoef je niet ver weg. Niet toeristisch en erg relaxed.

Geen eigen tuin, maar je kunt wel voor de deur zitten.

That was just perfect

  • 4 of 5

We stayed few days in this lovely and peaceful place. Had a great time in a typical and fishing place. Landlords and people in the village are so nice. No touristic at all, we had almost all the beach for us which was just in front!!! That was exactly what we wanted. Peace and quiet, just perfect. Thank you :-)
