Overall I would say that - within about 1 hour of arriving and sitting down I was enveloped in a sense of tranquility and peace that I have not experienced for a very long time. I have a very busy lifestyle and career and this one week stay completely 'recharged my batteries' We flew into Porto and we were 2 couples in our early 40's with 3 kids. The journey from the airport didn't take as long as we thought - about 1 hour. The location is really unusual and dramatic! Literally you are right on the rivers edge with the most amazing views! The swimming pool was sooo cool...it's actually built into the edge of the river - it was a surreal experience. My husband has a boating licence so we were able to use the small yacht - BUT there is a super water taxi service - you just give them a quick call and they come across the river to get you - you have 2 destinations.....across the river to a cute village called aregos where there's a thermal spa and a decent bistro/cafe with good food at very reasonable prices. OR - you go along the river to the Aregos train station and you can catch the tourist train which takes you to places like Regua and Pinhao up the Douro river or down the river to Porto......we did both river taxi rides .........beautiful scenery. Shopping an other amenities are all within a 10-15 minute drive. Fernando, Manuel and Anabela could not have been more charming and welcoming and supportive throughout our stay. I really truly highly recommend this house and area! There is a local one carriage train that passes by the house......NOT an issue - its once an hour and makes a low rumble for 2 seconds and you don't even hear it in the house........we were concerned about that when we saw the house online, but after to speaking to Fernando and Anabela we decided to trust their feedback and they were true and honest...it was NOT a problem at ALL! :-)

The surrounding area provided ample amenities for shopping or eating out and many thanks to Emelia the lovely house keeper who met us on our arrival and took us round the property and showed us where everything was located. Would certainly recommend it to other people as although it is very peaceful it is close enough to drive and see other places in the area.
