Highly recommended villa.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for two weeks this summer and I can't recommend it enough, it was perfect for our family. The villa is beautifully clean and well equipped. The outdoor area is really impressive. The pool is great and was cleaned several times during the duration of our stay.

The owner of the villa was so approachable and very helpful.

We would highly recommend this accommodation.

Tha villa and garden is lovely with plenty of space for everyone. The pool is nice if a bit bracing!

  • 3 of 5

We are a family of 8 and loved the size of the villa though the furniture & furnishings are quite dated. The outside BBQ area is great but chilly. Some sort blinds or screens to close off the draught would be fab. There's a lovely low walled area by the BBQ area that appears to be a neglected vegetable patch. This would make a smashing sand pit or kiddies paddling pool. There's plenty of crockery and cooking utensils but the cooking area is small and two people will keep bumping into each other!

Flies were an absolute nightmare- nothing to do with hygiene- just perhaps an awful year generally for flies. We bought fly swats and sticky fly papers but they were still a nuisance.

There's plenty of spare "pool" towels and inflatables for the pool which was cleaned every few days.

As a suggestion perhaps a little more info in the house folder giving details of buses (& where to catch them!) and other areas of interest. If you want peace and privacy this is the villa for you. Mike, the owner was only a call/ text away & could not be more helpful & nothing was too much trouble, he even offered to drive us to the shop and send our huge inflatables home if we couldn't fit them back in our case!

All in all a nice break

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your review, We always like feedback from of our clients, either positive or negative.The furnishing is a question of taste. The house is furnished to the same standards as in the Photos, which in our opinion is a high standard. The kitchen size, we have never had any comment regarding "people bumping into each other", I would also like to comment the villa is self catering, not a Hotel, Therefore do not have staff etc, to reply on tourist info, Although we are only a phone call away and are always happy to help our clients have an enjoyable stay. kind regards Mike

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 nights here in July and really wished we could have stayed longer. We were a party of 7 adults ranging from 17 - 82 years of age.

The photos do not do the size of the property justice as it so much more spacious. All bedrooms are a good size and all have lovely en suite bathrooms.

The pool was huge and the outdoor barbecue area was great for breakfast & evening dining.

Mike was really helpful and met us at the Villa when we arrived. He was also only a text message away if we had any further questions.

Esposende is a beautiful town with many hidden bars no cafes scattered around.

If you are looking for a fast busy town then this is not for you but if you prefer the quieter life and smaller bars? Then this is definitely the place for you.

Although a busy night life is not far away, (approx 15 mins by taxi) as my daughters discovered.

There are 2 supermarkets which are in walking distance and the beach was only a 10 min walk away from the villa.

We hired a car and spent one day in Braga and one day in Porto. I would recommend visiting both these places.

I would also highly recommend eating out at the local pizza restaurant. Unfortunately I can't remember it's name but it's a 10 min walk towards the town centre, just on the roundabout opposite the petrol station. Food here was delicious and the staff were very friendly.

We tried all three supermarkets and found the small one just right to the villa was the most resonably price.

We will definitely be returning.

Excellent house for large groups looking for lazy holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June 2017 for a week and had a wonderful time. We were a group of 10 encompassing children and grandparents and the five bedrooms and bathrooms meant we weren't on top of each other and had plenty of space. The house was clean and tidy on arrival, and was well equipped. We enjoyed many BBQ evenings outside. The pool was a hit with the children and being able to walk to the beach or the town for lunch made for a relaxing holiday. The pool was cleaned whilst we were there which was reassuring. Mike, the owner, was very helpful with queries before and during our trip and also acquired a high chair for us which was a great help.

Amazing villa with lovely swimming pool

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of ten celebrating our Golden Wedding with our two children and their spouses and our four young adult grandchildren. The villa was ideal as there was plenty of space for everyone and the pool was much bigger than expected. The master bedroom is huge with a lovely balcony and the attic room is also brilliant. The bifold doors looking out over the lovely garden and pool is fabulous.

A good villa for family groups

  • 2 of 5

Good Points:

The house looked great

The room sizes were nice

Each room was accompanied with a bathroom

The kitchen was well equip with utensils

Communication with the owner was good

Bad Points:

WiFi was non-existent

Swimming Pool was extremely dirty

Little to no hot water

Did not meet the owner face to face (We were shown around by someone with very limited knowledge of English)

Severe lack of bins in the house

Too many flies inside the house no matter how clean the place was kept

Jacuzzi Bath did not work

There was nothing to do in the local area (Everything took at least 4 miles to get to)

Was not shown everything in the house (Had to figure most things out)

The heating never came on


1. Have someone who speaks a little English do the initial tour

2. Have a hand book for visitors detailing any enquiries that might arise eg where the heating can be controlled, how to operate the pool controls, where to find a good local taxi service, where to or not to eat in the local area, the location of the activities mentioned in the advert

3. Electric fly killers throughout the house but definitely in the kitchen

4. A reliable wifi system

5. Cleaning supplies - There were hardly any and we had to buy our own toilet roll and air fresheners

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. Bad Points. 1. Wifi was non existent, when the problem was mentioned to me on friday, i asked if it continued to get back to me. This only happened on saturday at 21.30, A gentleman went around immediately who speaks english to try and sort the problem out. Unfortunately the cable service had a problem and the Technicians do not work on the Weekends. 2. Swimming Pool, i am surprised i have a pool cleaner 3 times a week, also have a net to take leaves out which is next to the pool, he did not go due to the cold and Rain. 3.Hot water, I am surprised not enough for 6?? As we have had 10 guest various times in the past and nobody had problems(400 Litre boiler). 3.lack of bins, there is a bin in the kitchen and also 250 litre bin outside the kitchen, guests normally empty the bins to the container daily which is on the street. lack of this is probably why the house had flies , rubbish on the table, plates, food, bottles on the floor in the living room and kitchen. 4 Jacuzzi,we have 3 jacuzzis in the house, One unfortuantely was broken which is getting fixed. 5.Toilet paper we have 12 Rolls, 2 per Bathroom 6. Heating was working nobody contacted me to switch it on Local area Esposende has restaurants shops etc, cinema, swimming complex, beach and many more things.
