Fantastic holiday!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great holiday in this lovely villa in a stunning location.

The villa was spotless and well presented on our arrival. We also found the villa to be very well equipped, and had everything that we needed. The owners had provided us with some bread, cheese and ham etc that was very welcome after our journey. There were 6 adults in our group and there was ample room for us all! All the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and well furnished. The communal areas were able to easily accommodate us, with plenty of chairs and table space. The provision of a dishwasher, and a washing machine, were really useful.

The villa is easily accessible from Porto via the motorway and took us approximately 2hrs from collecting our car at the airport to arriving at the villa (which was easily found using the owners directions). After leaving the motorway, ensure to take care on the roads leading to the villa - it's a winding road with lovely views, but not to be done in a hurry! A car is essential in this area, though it is possible to walk down the hill to Covas where there are shops selling essentials and a couple of cafes. The nearest supermarket is a short car ride away.

We spent much of our week exploring the local region - the wonderful national park and the beaches along the coast. The villa was in a quiet setting, which was ideal for relaxing with a drink and a good book by the pool. The owners have an amazing library of English language books in the villa so we weren't short of things to read! We had several BBQs at the villa throughout our stay, but we also had some good meals out and didn't find the region to be expensive. I'm sure this won't be the last time that we visit this lovely place.

Owner's Response: When we set up the house for renting out for holidays we wanted to have a place that would appeal to people of all ages, have a well equiped kitchen,baby and toddler equipment and fenced in garden and pool area.
We have achieved that and everybody,without exception, has really loved the house, this is very pleasing for us and we look forward to seeing past guests come again.

The Wow Factor of the Coura Valley, Covas

  • 5 out of 5
The Villa is AMAZING, the views from the villa are also AMAZING of the Coura Valley.
The villa is situated near the top of the Lugar de Serra road, Covas. The four bedrooms are very good sizes and well furnished, the bathrooms, all three of them are great to have when you all want a shower at the same time. There is also a shower room near the pool and a downstairs toilet. The facilities in general are extremely good with no expense spared to provide everything you need from shopping bags to tissues, cling film and a vast quantity of towels for the bathrooms and also pool towels, heaps of them. The games room/ gym are well equipped and great for children and adults alike. The area provides some beautiful country side to run in as well, although the hills are steep, but challenging to any runners who want to keep up their running programme. I loved it.
The villa has a homely and welcoming feel to it and has some lovely Portuguese plaques and pictures. I would certainly very much recommend this villa to any family or group of friends wanting to switch off and have a really relaxing holiday in the Minho area of North Portugal. The Corries are extremely helpful to any needs you may have and very hospitable.

Family Holiday

  • 5 out of 5
Wonderful Villa made for a wonderful holiday for 2 families, 4 kids! Everything said above is true. A very relaxing holiday, and the owner's really made us feel like part of the family with recommendations for site seeing, which port to buy, and even being a tour guide (thanks Alex). Hope the kids didn't wear you out!

Great set up for kids- lock for the pool fence so we can close it down to the young ones so we adults could sleep late....

Stunning views and so close to Spain and kid friendly beaches. Wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next year....

Superb vacation! Great house, setting & area.

Superb vacation! Great house, setting & area.

We are the 5th to review and we second all that was said before. We have spent a week during August 2011: two families with a total of 4 adults and 4 kids; 6,7 and 8 years old. House was plenty big and comfortable for our group.
We are lucky enough to spend over 12 weeks every year on vacation in Europe and the US, always renting houses for our family. This is definitely one of those properties that as you walk in you immediately realize the photos and description on the internet DO NOT do it justice - it is MUCH better.
The only real problem is that once you settle in, next to the swimming pool, you no longer feel like leaving to explore the area....

Stunning views!

  • 5 out of 5
A great house for 2 families to share. Split level (3 levels), very spacious, & well equiped, & comfortable. Every detail has been thought of. We enjoyed using the BBQ , eating out doors and appreciating that beautiful view , both day & night! The pool was wonderful, & there are plenty of sun loungers , and outdoor seating. Providing beach towels is a great idea, especially if you have travelled by budget airlines who are so mean with the luggage allowance! Covas is a truly unspoiled village, a haven of peace. We enjoyed using the small local shops & restaurants. Locals were very friendly, and Adria was extremely helpful in sharing her local knowledge, and advice. We would certainly recommend this house, and hope to return!

Lovely house

  • 5 out of 5
This is a beautiful, clean and spacious house in a lovely area of Portugal. The pool is perfect and the grounds are nicely landscaped. The house is spacious, with a nice sized combination kitchen, dining living area, and it is well suited for a large or small group (three levels, multiple bathrooms and two balconies, in addition to outdoor area). The house is located in a valley that requires driving up and down winding roads, but it still only takes about 20 minutes to get to decent food shopping and the highway. It is very quiet and peaceful. There are beaches and lots of interesting small towns to explore both in Portugal and Spain. The weather was a bit cloudy and we had some rain when we were there in June 2009, but apparently it is usually sunnier at that time of year. In terms of temperature, it was perfect. The hosts, Adria and Roy, live just down the road, and are incredibly friendly and helpful. I definitely would recommend it to someone looking for a relaxing holiday, a bit off the beaten track.
