Beautiful home in a wonderful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Even more beautiful in person than the pictures show. My family really enjoyed everything that the property had to offer. I would highly recommend for any family looking for a very peaceful vacation in an incredible setting.

Beautiful, well kept modern property, very nice owners

  • 4 of 5

Our only complaint was that it was difficult to find - the directions could be improved by adding distances for each leg of the journey, and some landmarks to look for at the turns, as the street signs are not easy to find (especially for Americans not used to the Portugese system). Our weather wasn't great, so we weren't able to take advantage of the pool, kayak and stand up paddle boards, but with the right weather, all of that would be fabulous! The house was very clean and modern and comfortable. Thanks!

Fantastic place !

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with a total of 4 kids and stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in August.

Everything was great !

The villa is modern and well equipped. The pool was perfect. Everything is like in the pictures of the website and even better in real life.

Having access to the Douro river with the kayak and the paddle boats were a plus. The kids enjoyed a lot.

Celia and Manuel were great hosts. Thank you again for everything !

Fantastic place in beautiful and quiet surrounding

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and modern villa is perfect for a relaxing stay in the Portuguese countryside. We stayed one week, two families of 9 people in total. The house was very clean and in perfect condition with a well equipped kitchen. The pool area is also really great, with sun beds and trees giving shadow from the sun. Follow the driving instructions carefully, as the GPS might guide you to the very, very narrow road through the small village Vimieiro. About one hour drive away is the large and beautiful port wine district, but there are some really nice smaller Vinho verde ”quintas” only 20 minutes away. Information on these has nicely been put together by the house owner. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful river using the two stand up paddle boards and the kayak available!
