Fabulous destination

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lovely villa for 3 weeks for a family event in 2015. It was perfect for a large group with plenty of space for the 13 people we had stay at peak occupancy. The outdoor kitchen/table and BBQ were a great benefit when feeding a crowd and sitting out in the evening. Facilities overall were excellent and the place kept spotless. The villa was suitable for all ages (for us 11 to 77 years). The pool area is very attractive and bigger than the photos would suggest. We picked fruit from the orchard and got salads from the garden. Occasionally the hens laid eggs for breakfast. The villa is well laid out with shady areas for the heat of the day and activities to keep kids occupied (including wifi!!), nice views from the veranda around the house.

Fernanda, Marcos and their boys are lovely hosts and provided a lot of useful information about the area. The villa is a short walk of several places to eat and a fabulous bakery (cakes to die for!).

Ponte de Lima is a 5 min drive or a 30 min stroll through shady lanes and along the river side. The town is charming, unspoilt and largely devoid of hoards of tourists - we loved it. There are several big markets and events on during the summer to keep everyone entertained. The coast is also an easy trip.

Will definitely return to this area of Portugal. Thank you to Casa da Pedrosa for making so many happy memories.

Liz

Superb experience in a unique house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spends the whole summer in Europe for many years and thus we find ourselves renting 7-9 houses each and every year. We know the area of the Minho well, love it and return frequently. Our first time in this Pedrosa house of Fernanda and Marcos was a stellar experience! The house is located in a village near Ponte De Lima. Far enough to experience a real rural village life in very authentic environment, and close enough to walk or bike to town on the Camino De Santiago or the river side Eco-Via trail (it is 25 minutes walk to town in a safe area both day and night).

The house is well represented in the photos and while one should not expect great luxury inside, it is comfortable, totally air-conditioned and extremely well equipped (generous availability of all one needs and extras).

The absolute highlight and a feature we have never experienced before is the open air full kitchen and dining room near the swimming pool. This area can seat 14 comfortably and the kitchen (additional one to the extremely well equipped one in the house) it fully equipped including a refrigerator, dishwasher and great BBQ grill. This feature of the house converts your summer experience into truly wonderful -- one finds himself spending the day outdoors including cooking and dining - it is unique and great.

Orchard with fruit trees, vegetable garden, ping-pong and Foosball, all add to the superb outdoor experience. Owners are generous and very accommodating. This one is a real example of the cliche: come as a guest, leave as a friend. We will be back.

Séjour du 27/10 au 03/11/12

  • 5 of 5

Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de ce séjour dans la région du Minho.Les propriétaires sont extrêmement sympathiques et serviables.D'une manière générale,tous les portugais que nous avons rencontrés là-bas se sont montrés très accueillants.Rien ne manque dans la villa,nous n'avons jamais vu de location avec un tel niveau de confort et d'équipement.Nous avons été charmés par les villes de Porto,Braga et Ponte de Lima.Partout où nous avons mangé,les plats étaient assez simples mais délicieux;nous avons également découvert de très bons vins rouges et blancs.Encore un immense merci à Fernanda et à Marcos pour leur gentillesse et les services rendus.

SUPERBE VILLA DANS UN ENDROIT TYPIQUE

  • 5 of 5

J'ai emmené ma belle-famille française visiter le nord du Portugal, avec des adultes (de 40 à 76 ans) et avec des ados de 12 à 18 ans.Les magnifiques photos données sur le site représentent vraiment la réalité... Nous étions 16 et nous avons adoré la maison et tout ce qu'on peut y faire, malgré un temps qui a été exceptionnellement frais, avec un peu de pluie = ping pong, piscine, baby foot, feu dans le four à bois, un superbe jardin avec des jolis canards, des promenades tout autour = on est sur le chemin de Santiago de Compostella, nous avons pu parler avec quelques pélerins, nous avons pu voir des images typiques encore du Portugal, mais qu'on ne voit plus guère = une dame qui "promenait" son boeuf, une dame qui lavait son linge dans la rivière, etc... De plus, nous sommes à côté de nombreux endroits touristiques et très beaux à voir : le Bom Jesus à Braga, même sous le brouillard, est impressionnant ! Les caves de Porto, même sous la pluie, sont belles ! Les plages de Viana do Castelo, si grandes et si désertes, sont magnifiques sous le soleil, etc... Merci à Fernanda et à son mari pour leur accueil, pour leur gentillesse et pour toute leur aide et conseils pendant notre séjour... Nous devions déjà venir en Avril 2010, mais notre vol avait été annulé en raison du volcan, et Fernanda avait eu la grande gentillesse de nous proroger notre acompte, jusqu'à ce que, finalement, 2 ans plus tard, nous puissions tous venir à nouveau... Ce voyage restera gravé encore longtemps dans l'esprit de toute notre famille ! Quelle chance nous avons eu de trouver cette villa et de pouvoir nous y rendre tous ensemble !
