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.

Wer Ruhe sucht,die Natur liebt , ist hier genau richtig.

  • 5 of 5

Mitten in einer wundervollen Umgebung Portugals liegt dieses wunderschöne alte Haus mit dem tollen Garten. Die Ausstattung des Anwesenheit ist wohnlich,mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht,sehr gepflegt und sauber. Die Besitzer, sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und sie gaben uns das Gefühl, willkommene Gäste zu sein. Ein Auto ist erforderlich um die reizvolle Umgebung zu erkunden. Wir kommen wieder.

Vielen Dank Fanando, es war ein Traumurlaub und das lag auch an diesem schönem Domizil und eurer Freundlichkeit.

Nous avons passé une très agréable semaine, la maison est très calme et bien située pour visiter les principaux sites touristiques. Merci à Fernando pour son accueil très chaleureux et ses conseils de visites. Tout est conforme aux photos, nous avons été enchantés et avons profité de la piscine en fin de journée. C'est vraiment un bel endroit pour visiter cette partie du Portugal et pour se détendre. Je vous invite à découvrir cette location, nous nous avons adoré.
