Lovely spot on the Douro
Had a great time at Casa de Gondomil, which has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Great views, well equipped and with use of canoes to have fun on the river. The pool is fine for a cooling dip. We would love to return in the future. Maria Eugenia and Jose are great hosts.
We only had 2 days here but wished we could stay longer. Maria welcomed us warmly and gave us a great restaurant recommendation for dinner. The accommodation was spotless and breakfast on the balcony overlooking the river was a highlight. Highly recommend!
Maria was so friendly & helpful even before our holiday started. We had an amazing time staying in the most remarkable spot along the river, so peaceful & the pool and kayaks just added to our fun!! Would recommend this place to all & will definitely be back one day ourselves!!
When we arrived everything in the house itself was spotless, and the owners had thought of every little thing you might need for your stay, from milk and beers in the fridge, to extra loo rolls and a new scouring pad for washing up. Maria Eugenia was just fantastic - really keen to make our stay as lovely as possible, without being intrusive or over the top. A lovely lady!
Casa de Gondomil is in the most beautiful setting, on a terraced agricultural property overlooking the river. You can walk the terraces and are free to pick oranges, apples, lemons etc, and Maria Eugenia also brought us runner beans and tomatoes from their garden - delicious! The pool is also lovely, and the kids really enjoyed interrupting their swims to jump out of the pool and wave at the boats going past on the river below!
One of the nicest things we felt was the access to the canoes. It was fantastic to know we could just set off on the river at any time without having to book or hire them. Life jackets were left out for us, and when we asked if they had a slightly smaller one for our younger daughter, Maria Eugenia immediately set about trying to get hold of one and it was there soon after. Nothing was too much trouble!
Maria Eugenia's husband Jose also took us out on a boat trip, which was really fascinating, and the kids loved it.
If you like holidays which are active and a bit different then this is for you. The only thing I would say is that you should be prepared for long (but generally very pretty) journeys if you want to explore the area. The roads are quite windy and things took quite a lot longer to get to than we had thought. But to be honest, there's no real need to leave the place, it's so wonderful and the owners are lovely!
KLEIN MAAR FIJN
Na vele bochtige wegen is het aankomen bij Casa de Gondomil alsof je in het paradijs beland. De rust, het uitzicht en de natuur met al zijn bomenpracht, bloemen en vruchten maken het verblijf tot een perfecte vakantie. Het mooi gelegen zwembad biedt verkoeling zoals de eigenaren warmte uitstralen. Het huisje is een voorbeeld van goede architectuur met de juiste plaatselijke materialen en doordachte details. Kortom het is het moeten nemen van al die bochten meer dan waard. Een aanrader.
Un entorno precioso e inigualable.
La casa esta situada en un entorno precioso, a orillas del Rio Duero. Perfectamente equipada, con los detalles basicos y utiles para viajar en familia. Los dueños con un trato excepcional, agradables, cariñosos, serviciales y discretos.
A 45 km de Oporto, y cerquita de numerosas rutas para disfrutar de la naturaleza.
Recomendable y para repetir sin duda.
Gracias a Maria y Jose Manuel por su acogimiento y disposicion
