Remember the year that we went to Casa dos Penedos

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.

If you book it, there will be no regrets, what a beautiful location for a break. With new fast roads through the mountains it made visiting towns and villages a pleasure, we managed to venture far and wide in a short space of time. The Villa had everything one needs, its spotlessly clean and tidy, the owners are a pleasure very welcoming and helpful, a true Portuguese experience. We'll definitely stay there again in the future, its got the WOW factor...

A wonderful villa, in a wonderful surroundings. The location of this holiday house could not be better: magnificent views over the Douro river, while you are enjoying a glass of port or vino verde; lovely swimming pool; beautiful garden; wonderful traditional Portuguese villa. The lovely owners of this house have gone the extra mile to allow their guests to have a holiday of a life time: upon arrival, you will find a super clean holiday house, very well maintained, every appliance you need is available, a lady comes to water to the garden every morning, the owners have put together a guide providing information on the house, the surrounding area and the places to visit. I very much recommend this villa to everyone who is looking for a relaxing holiday in a wonderful region.

Beautiful villa

This was a really beautiful house. The overall size of the house and land is much bigger than you imagine and the views from the main terrace overlooking the river are wonderful. It's very well equipped in all aspects - great to have many items such as detergent, dishwasher tablets etc provided. The pool was fantastic especially as the weather was so hot that week. We loved it but the only negative is that it was scorching hot and without air con the bedrooms at night were unbearably hot. Many cool showers in the middle of the night! For visitors not as used to the heat, you really do need fans available in the bedrooms if there is no air conditioning. There was one fan but we were using 2 bedrooms so one of us suffered greatly and hardly slept. Apart from that, I can't recommend it enough - lovely lovely house and charming helpful owners Virgilio and Manuela who were polite and friendly even when we were horribly lost and horribly late on arrival!

The villa is really well equipped, we loved the wide veranda and made good use of the built in bbq. The pool area and garden are lovely.

The nearest restaurants are a about ten minutes by car. We ate at D'Penha Douro, twice during our week at the villa. The food was very good and very reasonably priced.

What really stands out from other houses we have rented is the view. It's simply stunning and ever changing. It is so peaceful and relaxing to just sit on the veranda, with a nice glass of Portuguese wine and just watch the river.

Hope to return before too long.

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.
