This is a most comfortable house with marvellous views of this unique area. It is located on the north side of the Douro, high above the river. The spacious patio provides more than ample outside living space and the interior of the house is modern and well equipped. The hosts are most gracious and helpful and it was a great pleasure to meet them. Unfortunately we had only six days here. We would certainly return to this property should we be fortunate enough to get back to the Douro.
Heading down towards the villa, you get your first glimpse of the River Douro, giving you an idea of what’s to come!
Like someone else has previously mentioned, turn around at the bottom, as this is easier than the road above the villa.
Three adults and two children were immediately blown away by the view.
The outstanding modern villa was extremely impressive.
If you want peace and quiet and not much of anything else, then you need not look any further, as this is the place for you. The swimming pool is fantastic, not heated tho, so a leap of faith when first entering required! 😁 Supermarkets 15 mins away (Lidl, continental, mini preco). Porto is only 50 minutes away, which is such an impressive city, with so much to do.
This is in no way anything to take away from the villa, but more a mention. No washing machine, which didn’t bother us but would have been helpful. The third bedroom bed left my brother lacking sleep, as it was a very noisy bed, whenever he turned over throughout the night. Also, maybe a light around the pool area in the evening (aside from the pool lights),
Patricia and myself communicated well. A bottle of wine greeted us which was a lovely touch.
We would definitely book this villa again!
