How to summerize our 3 weeks stay in Casa do Talhinho ? We are talking regulerly about it and cherish our many memories: it was Paradise !

The gate of "Quinta do Pizao" is the gate to that Paradise; a stone path leads down through a small bush and surprise: there is the Talhinho House with swimmingpole, surrounded by vinyeards ! You take a seat, enjoy the silence, you see lizards in the sun, sometimes a couple of squirrels come down - the atmosphere is so quiet, so special for city-people. The silence only broken by the gentle train to Porto and return - the connection with the great world.

Mr. Alfonso and his lady are real hosts, friendly, ready to help you when you need it. They respect your privacy. The first day of our arrival we found the necessary things in the freezer, the bottle of wine... we had not to look in a hurry for a foodshop. Excellent hosts they are and we say that gratefully.

Inside the house you find all things you need in the kitchen; bathrooms and sleepingrooms are comfortable. All is very clean.

After one week our two daughters, our son-in-law and our grandson arrived. We had superior holidays together. Every day we enjoyed the meals outside. The evenings were so peaceful. We all arrived stressed, but returned home relaxed.

The village is charming. Gentle people. We went to the baker who made good small breads. We spent happy hours at the café on the small square.

We made several trips to Porto by the modern train. When you drive a car you are soon on the highway and to some beautiful cities in the region. Along the Duro River is surprisingly beautiful.

Not one minor point in our memories. Casa do Talhinho, it remains in our mind as a lovely song. As we said already: it was Paradise.

Casa do Talhinho is a charming old farm house with a lot of space. The house is perfectly renovated, tastefully decorated and comfortable, inside and outside is clean and tidy. The garden that surrounds it, is a great place for a relaxing stay, peace and quiet, with perfectly clean swimming pool.

Well equipped kitchen, washing machine, living room with big fireplace, very nice bedrooms with comfortable beds, garden furniture, grill, private parking place very close the house – we found everything what we needed.

The owners have thought of everything that customers may need. They were very hospitable, friendly and helpful for everything, but discreet and respectful of our privacy. When we arrived they showed us throught their lovely well-equipped house.

The location is perfect for trips to Porto and northern Portugal. Near the motorway and the railway station (comfortable transport to Porto).

A very beautiful and peaceful place for holidays. It's a very good option to stay for a family or a group, with or without children.

We spent here a marvelous week in September 2013.

We enjoyed our stay and recommend this property to others!

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans le domaine. Les propriétaires sont charmants, disponibles pour toute aide et information. Nous recevons quelques provisions en guise d'accueil. Le domaine à lui tout seul est magnifique: vignes, citronniers, eucalyptus, lauriers, fleurs diverses en font une merveille. La piscine et la maison sont très confortables et très bien entretenus. Il y a un supermarché à 5 minutes (Intermarché). Nous sommes à 30 minutes de Porto, où nous sommes allés plusieurs fois: c'est une ville très colorée. Nous avons visité 2 caves : celles de Taylor's et de Graham's. La vallée du Douro est à voir également ainsi que Coimbra, Guimares, Braga etc...

A lovely villa and pool in a beautiful location. Right in the heart of Portuguese rural life. Short walk to excellent railway service to Porto etc, inexpensive and easy to use.

take the motorway A4 direccion Porto-Amarante and take exit nº10 (Baltar/Parada).

Take the train Porto-Caíde till Cête railway station.

There are lots of interesting places to visit in Oporto. We sugest a visit to Oporto Wine Cellars, to the brand new Rem Koolhaas's Music House, and if you are a fan of the nightlife you can drink one of the greates Douro wines in the riversidae of Oporto.

You can go cruising in the beautiful Douro river and look in the most famous wine producing farms, or take a historic steam tranetrip on the riverside.

The green counties of Minho and all of Trás-os-Montes are 2 steps away. There you can find numerous splendorous landscapes.
