Lovely apartment in unique location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this apartment. The location in the old fort is unique - getting in and out through the gates to the fort was interesting the first time - we did not believe the GPS! The apartment was very well looked after and made a great base for exploring the Minho Valley (the views from the apartment look up the valley). Would recommend strongly.

This is an incredibly charming apartment in the villa. Excellent location and so easy! This was our second stay here, almost a month this time, and we hope to be back again soon. Thank you Carlos!

My wife and I very much e...

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at Sr Morais's apartment in Valence in the Spring of 2013. The apartment, in an 18th century building, has been expertly renovated and is very comfortable and well equipped. It is situated in a quiet area with little passing traffic during the day and hardly any after 6 pm, and has a splendid view over the hills of the Minho.Valenca itself is a fascinating town, built within an old fort, and you can spend happy hours just wandering around. There are plenty of restaurants within a short walk of the apartment, and a large supermarket about 15 minutes walk away. If you want to explore further afield, a half-hour walk will take you to Tuy, and twenty minute will get you to the station for trains to towns to the south of Valenca. Finally, Sr Morais, the owner, is very helpful, as is his local representative. Will we go back? Certainly - we can hardly wait.

Totalmente recomendable

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado cuatro días en este apartamento y la estancia ha sido simplemente fantástica. Las fotografías reflejan fielmente lo que después te encuentras, un apartamento totalmente reformado, muy limpio y perfectamente dotado de todo lo necesario para pasar unos días en él. Ubicado dentro de la fortaleza de Valença pero alejado del bullicio de la multitud de tiendas que allí te encuentras y con zonas gratuitas de aparcamiento muy próximas... Altamente recomendable, esperamos volver.

Bonito apartamento en bonito entorno

  • 5 of 5

Apartamento muy limpio y bonito en un entorno precioso, la fortaleza. Las vistas desde el salón eran preciosas también. Pasamos una semana muy agradable. Bien equipado y cómodo. Muy recomendable

Lo único que le faltó fue la calefacción central, que no tiene. Sin embargo, nos apañamos con los radiadores que nos dejaron.
