Beautiful views from the patio; Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Starting with meeting us at the airport to make sure we could find our way in the dark, Virgilio and Manuela made sure everything was just perfect for our first visit to Portugal. All the previous comments are true, including that the photos understate the beautiful views from the rather large wrap around balcony. We spent hours most afternoons and evenings out on that balcony with food, wine, and just gazing at the views.. Truly spectacular.. Definitely need a car and navigation - the European maps we had downloaded worked pretty well on our various day trips up and down the Douro river and into Porto. If traveling in the summer, make sure to bring your swimsuits - the pool is lovely, and the house can get warm. We absolutely recommend this beautiful villa to everyone..

Casa dos Penedos: uma varanda no paraíso...

  • 5 of 5

Dentre várias casas que encontramos no vale do Douro, decidimos por esta bela Villa, e não poderíamos ter feito melhor escolha. As fotos apesar de ótimas não expressam toda a beleza do lugar. A localização é perfeita, bem no meio da região, o que facilitou em muito os passeios que fizemos, e que foram muitos. A casa tem tudo o que se espera para umas férias tranquilas e confortáveis. Ela é ampla, super limpa, confortável, totalmente equipada, uma piscina deliciosa, uma churrasqueira super agradável além de uma varanda perfeita para uma refeição observando o rio logo abaixo. A comunicação com os proprietários sempre foi super fácil e rápida. A região é linda e repleta de passeios e cidades a serem visitadas, além de cruzeiros pelo rio ( imperdível ). Supermercado, farmácia, banco, padaria... tudo está bem próximo. Logo abaixo da casa pode-se mergulhar no rio em uma pequena praia de areia, o que fiz quase todos os dias pela manhã e à tarde. Mas muito melhor ainda são os anfitriões Virgílio e Manuela. Pessoas que nos cativam desde o início com simpatia, educação e simplicidade. Nos ajudaram durante e depois de nossa hospedagem. Muito obrigado Virgílio por entregar a chapeleira na Europcar, obrigado mesmo. Esperamos vê-los em breve aqui no Brasil. Abraços e beijos de Flavio, Virginia, Silvia e Ronaldo.

Casa dos Penedos: uma varanda no paraiso...

  • 5 of 5

Dentre várias opções de casas no vale do Douro, decidimos por esta bela Villa, e não poderíamos ter feito melhor escolha. As fotos apesar de lindas ainda não expressam toda a beleza do local. A localização é perfeita, bem no meio da região, o que facilita em muito os passeios pelas cidades ao redor. A casa tem de tudo que se espera para umas férias tranquilas e confortáveis. É ampla, limpíssima, equipada, segura e tem uma vista de tirar o fôlego. Além de uma piscina deliciosa, uma área de churrasco fantástica e uma varanda perfeita para uma refeição observando o rio logo abaixo. Supermercado, padaria, farmácia, banco... tudo está bem perto. Nadar no rio logo abaixo da casa é formidável, fazíamos isto de manhã e ao final da tarde. Porém o mais importante além disto é a simpatia e a confiança que imediatamente sentimos pelos proprietários. Virgílio e Manuela são aquelas pessoas que imediatamente nos cativam com charme e simplicidade. A comunicação com os proprietários foi fantástica desde o início e mesmo após nossa saída ainda nos ajudaram muito ( muito obrigado Virgílio por devolver a chapeleira ). Em resumo, a casa foi tudo e muito mais do que esperávamos para nossas férias. Muito obrigado por tudo e esperamos vê-los em breve no Brasil. Abraços e beijos de Flavio, Virgínia, Sílvia e Ronaldo.

What a place!

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note to confirm that which has been said by others. Virgilio and Manuela were gracious and very helpful. The house is excellent – it’s handsome and comfortable, and views are spectacular. We would go back in heartbeat.

Remember the year that we went to Casa dos Penedos

  • 5 of 5

You remember the year that we went to Casa dos Penedos.

I could have made an exhaustive description of our stay, but it will have been a repetition of all the positives comments that have already been said. We have decide to choose this property, based on the comments written and the pictures show. The comments are totally true and the reality is even better than the pictures.

The travels are make to discover land, peoples and create memories. Some are good or very good but the casa host, scenery, house and life style have create for our family, memories that we will remember for many decades.

Crossing the ocean to stay at the casa was a pure pleasure

This is what we think of this place.

Nearby the house you can visit the Roman ruins of Tongobriga, the church of Saint Mary in Marco de Canaveses, designed by Siza Vieira (the famous Portuguese architect), the leisure park of the Montedeiras mountain. the city of Oporto about 70km away can give you one or more days of culture, visiting museums and old churches, ou pure gastronomic leisure. The visit to the oporto wine cellars is among other things a compulsory visit. Vila Real is a city wich is worth visiting, without leaving behind the house of Mateus.

Guimarães just about 70 km away, cot city of Portugal has also an interesting historic area, as the castel and the palace of the Bragança dukes.

Just about 600m from the house you can find the river beach on the right bank of Douro river.
