Peaceful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five day stay at this beautiful house near the end of September. We flew into Porto from Dublin and rented a car at the airport. We arrived late at night but the owner Fernando met us on our arrival and was very friendly and helpful. He also spoke very good english.

The house is beautiful and is exactly as it is described and appears in the photographs. It is very modern , comfortable and clean inside and has a beautiful natural pool, court yard which gets the morning sun and a garden.

It is located in a very peaceful area and is about a five minute drive from the nearest town, Pōvoa de Lanhoso (check out the Castle for great views and restaurent). It is in excellent location for touring (a car is necessary) the other surrounding towns such as Braga and Guimaraes (which was our favourite) which are approximetly 20 minute drive away. The house is also a 30 minute drive from the national park which is a must see!

We would highly recommend this house and northern Portugal and will definitely consider returning in the future.

un séjour inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

Merci infiniment à Fernando pour son accueil (son français est excellent quoi qu'il il en dise,,,)

le gîte est très beau et il est vraiment agréable d'y séjourner. La piscine naturelle est évidemment appréciable! Ce gîte est à recommander à toute personne souhaitant découvrir le nord du Portugal.
