We had a great time at the house which has everything you need for a great holiday. The pool was a perfect size to enjoy in the morning sun and Sanguedo is a great base from which to explore the area. If driving to Porto the Park and Ride at the Estadio do Dragao works well as you are straight onto the Metro (the parking ticket is the andante card so you do not need to get one before you just load it there). Espinho has a great beach and the fish restaurants are great value. Filip was easily contactable and quick to help when we requested something. Thank you for a great holiday.
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!
