About the property

4 bedrooms, sleeps 8, in Afife

Located on the hill of Afife, near the beach access, we can find the house Tra-Lo-Castro. The main gate gives access to a large paved, ideal to park two or three cars, and from which one has access to the various areas of this property. To the right is the main house and a large lawned garden with a swimming pool. The house is divided into four bedrooms and two bathrooms at first floor level, one suite and on the ground floor, there is a great regional kitchen, a lounge and a bathroom. The lounge has direct access from the entrance patio and communicates with the pool and the back of the house. The pool area is supported by a porch equipped with barbecue, table and lounge chairs and communicates directly with the kitchen. In the end of the property, a higher elevation and facing south, there is a porch that invites contemplation of the sunset. Down the garden path towards the entrance, in the former wine cellar, and where there is a press and traditional mill, we found the games room equipped with table football and in a room nearby, a snooker table.

Very nice, comfortable, cool spacious house

  • 4 of 5

We stayed with 5 adults in this house. Beautiful charming house with lots of space.

Large swimming pool and garden.

Walking distance to the beach (15 min). Perfect location to do some sight seeing: to Viana do Castelo, Braga, Dom Jesus, Barcellos, Porto and the National Park.

Somos um casal com 2 crianças e não conseguimos imaginar casa mais perfeita para passar férias: espaço dentro e fora de casa, super acolhedora, com muitos recantos encantadores... pertíssimo do Mar, respira-se ar fresco em todas as áreas! Voltaremos concerteza!

Casa muy bonita pero descuidada

  • 3 of 5

La casa es grande y tiene muy buenos servicios pero, en general, estaba descuidada: horno muy viejo y sucio, el frigorífico no funcionaba, faltaban bombillas... La atención del responsable de la casa fue buena: se encargó de comprar una nevera nueva en el momento y fue atento con nosotros.

Aunque está cerca de la vía del tren, el ruido no molesta.

Owner's Response: Gracias Andrea por su comentário, Lo que passo con la nevera nos há sorprendido, nos quedamos tan desolados como vosostros, felizmente lo superamos rápido. Como habiamos comentado, esta Primavera la cocina será renovada, assí como parte de la mobília del salón para que todo este listo para el Verano. Pena que el tiempo no vos tenga permitido disfrutar de la piscina, quiçá en una outra oportunidad. Saludo cordial

well -situated

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of 5 and are used to renting homes for the summer. The house is really well located as it is right next to the beach. The beach is gorgeous and quiet. The house was very clean when we arrived.

Unfortunately we were the first tenants in five years. The house had therefore a high level of humidity and smelled musty.

Also, there is a train passing RIGHT NEXT to the house at least 12 times a day (and night)!!!

Finally, the pool is NOT heated, which in a warm environment wouldn't be a problem but as we are right next to the beach it is always windy and not hot enough to jump in such cold water. The pool was really clean :)
