Quiet self contained rustic accommodation. Friendly and accodating hosts who presented us with Cherry Liquor on arrival. Our hosts specially went shopping for an electric kettle for their English guests. Handy location for visiting the beautiful Douro valley and surrounding area.
We spent a very enjoyable week here. The accommodation is well-equpped and homely. Jorge, our host, lives in the adjacent property. He was very welcoming and helpful, but otherwise left us to enjoy our holiday.
We particularly valued Jorge's advice about the best places to visit, restaurants and local amenities.
The area is attractive without being "touristy". The property has some great views and a lovely garden. It is within easy driving distance of interesting historical centres in the Douro region including Vila Real, Mateus Palace, Guimaraes, Braga and Lamego.
The attractive local town, Amarante, has good shopping and restaurants. We were fortunate to be there for the annual St John festival which was great fun.
Ideas for improvement: an information pack for the local area would have been helpful.
