About Adria Corrie(owner)
I live 5 mins walk down the lane.I have now been in Portugal for 22 years,previously I lived in Brasil and USA.My husband worked for Taylors/Fonseca port wine company until he died in 2010. I love this beautiful area,laid back,little traffic,lots of places to explore,beautiful beaches,both in Portugal and Spain and very few tourists.
Adria Corrie(owner) purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Adria Corrie(owner) chose Covas
Casa das Oliveiras is very spacious,plenty of room both inside and outside in the terraced garden.The view from the house towards the Arga hills is spectacular.The kitchen is very well equiped,and guests have enjoyed using the BBQ and experimenting with the old bread oven in the garden.
What makes this Villa unique
Originally this was two small farmhouses which we made into one.It was a ruin covered in ivy when we bought it and restored it in order to rent out for families to come on holiday. The unique benifits are that it is big enough for two families to share,the pool is big and it is not shared and I live just down the lane, nearby to give any help or advice if needed.

A fabulous ‘away from it all’ place
A beautiful part of Portugal and the house was perfect for our holiday of 2 families - 4 adults and 4 children.

Family holiday August 19
The house was even nicer than the pictures on the site and exceeded our expectations. It was very spacious for 6 of us and could easily accommodate more, it was very well equipped, hada fantastic view from the terrace and a great pool. We really enjoyed our visit

Thank you for your review Angela,and many thanks for leaving the money for the broken glass!!

Stunning views and amazing Villa
This Villa has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. There were 9 of us staying over 3 generations and all had plenty of space and amenities to relax and enjoy.
The views are stunning, the pool area is beautiful and the building is homely and spacious.
Situated in the hills of northern Portugal, the scenery is breathtaking. You'll need a car to enjoy the local historical towns and beaches but they are only 30mins away. The owner is local so available if you need her but other than that she will leave you to enjoy a peaceful holiday.
Thank you Adria for a lovely week, we will most certainly be back!
Thanks a lot Lauren.I am glad you all enjoyed yourselves and it was kind of you to take the time to write a review.
