A place where you can relax in tranquility close to a great beach and interesting town

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely return to Maria's little house to enjoy the peaceful location with easy access to the sandy beach and a pleasant walk or ferry ride across to Viana do Castelo. The residential neighbourhood is nice for a stroll or there is a lovely boardwalk along the dunes among pine trees.

Communication with Maria before and during the stay was great and she made us feel very welcome.

The house was very well equipped, especially with kitchen utensils and everything that you might need. The bed was comfortable and everywhere was immaculately clean.

We spent a lot of time relaxing on the terrace outside the house, which is very private and peaceful with a lovely outlook down the garden and up to the hill with Santa Luzia church on top. It was great at all times of the day and evening.

Thank you, Maria and family, for such a memorable stay. We wish we could have stayed much longer.

We loved the "Little House"

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Maria's holiday property for almost 3 weeks - July, 2017 - and we had a wonderful time. This property has a very private, large patio and a huge garden.

The house, although small, is very well equipped and Maria is a kind and gracious hostess.....supplying us with vegetables, fresh fruit and other tasty treats!

It is situated between Viana do Castelo and Cabedelo Beach - so a walk to either one is do-able....although some people may find the walk over the bridge into Viana too long - buses and/or taxis are available. The town of Viana do Castelo is lovely with plenty to see and do. The bus and train station are right in town, so access to other towns and villages in the area is easy. Cabedelo Beach is stunning - although very windy. A large, long beach - it is sheltered by dunes and pine trees - it is very popular with kite-surfers. There are a couple of great cafés at the beach area + 2 very close to Maria's house. We would recommend this vacation property to anyone who likes to walk or who has a car. Maria is one of the nicest, kindest people we have ever met....thank you for your hospitality.

Accueil et hébergement excellents

  • 5 of 5

Maria est une hôtesse toujours soucieuse de bien accueillir et met à notre disposition un hébergement idéal pour des vacances réussies. La maisonnette est aussi agréable que confortable, agrémentée d'un magnifique jardin. La terrasse est parfaite pour les petits déjeuners et les repas à l'extérieur. La situation à proximité du centre ville facilite la découverte et les visites du nord du Portugal qui nous a enchantés. Enthousiastes après cette première expérience portugaise, nous espérons la renouveler.

A bientôt Maria et encore merci.
