Thank you so much for your comment.
We would love for you to return!
We drove down a tree lined lane to the stunning entrance of a beautiful historical home. Greeted by Joao and his family with chilled Vinho Verde and homemade blueberry tart - touring the house, gardens, pool area & farm yard we were stunned by the holiday venue that was to be ours for the next 10 days. Whilst retaining it's historical integrity, the house is ideal for a family holiday - well equipped kitchens, we loved the smaller garden kitchen with wood/pizza oven. Extensive furnished outdoor space, many hours spent in the courtyard, and sat on the kitchen step watching the sun set. Clean modern bathrooms. Simply furnished, individually designed, comfortable bedrooms. The 'farm yard' link between house & pool was a great hit with our children - aged 15 month to 5 years who loved the peacock, hens & geese. The pool and garden room a great success, the hammocks and woods a calm place to while away a quiet hour. The formal garden a real treat and finally the 'Garden of Eden' an amazing vegetable garden - we so enjoyed the generous gifts of fresh fruit and vegetables readily given. The town is within walking distance - a lovely traditional square to chill like a local in the warm evenings. The nearby river beaches the ideal place to really cool off. Everything about Casa de Piellas exceeded our expectations and we look forward to returning in the future with our expanding family - especially once the project Joao plans for the property is completed! Thank you for sharing your special home with us
Beautiful expansive rural villa perfect for the whole family
Our family stayed at Casa Piellas for a week- 14 of us ranging in age from 2- 72yrs and everyone had an amazing time! The property is beautiful and expansive and the house has many separate areas - so everyone can be together at the pool or in the courtyard or you can find a place of peace and quiet in the gardens or one of the rooms. Joáo was a very friendly, generous and responsive host both before the booking and during our stay, allowing us early access to the property (our landed early morning) and welcoming us with lemonade, coffee and homemade blueberry pie. The grounds are spectacular - a large, formal garden and larger wooded areas and fields to explore. We spent a lot of time at the pool area which is lovely. Great pool for little kids to paddle on the step and the older ones to jump around in a large area and even pool toys to play with. Rooms were all well furnished and maintained. The kitchen is gorgeous - the real heart of the home, and the cooking room with the wood oven is a wonderful feature especially for those who enjoy cooking - we made great lamb and pizza's in the oven. There are loads of utensils, crockery and cutlery. We didn't use the impressive formal dining room, rather having our meals in the downstairs garden room or outside in the courtyard. It says something about the villa that there are at least 3 areas that can accommodate 14 people meals. The area is great to explore - we walked to nearby river pools to swim, there is a deer and play park just up the road and numerous little villages to explore close by. We did a wine tasting at Santa Cristina which was also highly recommended. The only tiny issue is that there often isn't a lot of space to unpack clothes in the rooms. But that is very minor issue. Overall it is a incredible experience. We were planning when we can return!
Thank you so much for the great comment.
Amazingly unique property, very relaxing, as if you have your own resort
Unique experience to stay in a traditional manor home with upgraded bathrooms
A natural spring water pool to cool off in
There is a farm on the property and our children enjoyed eating on the kitchen steps with peacocks walking by. The manor is very close to the centre of town with supermarkets, butcher, fresh produce market. We were able to relax and unwind.
