The house is newly built, everything is fresh and very clean. While there was no garden space yet, the terrace and balcony were lovely to sit out on, very private and the views lovely. There is a small shop in Cabril and a couple of bars and Wi-fi. The small bakery/cafe is especially recommended, good cakes! There is a nice place to swim in the river in Cabril. Just be aware that although it's only about a mile from the house, the hill is very steep coming back! Lots of beautiful walks close by. We visited Braga which was a nice town, lots of shops and restaurants, and supermarkets. It's about an hour away.
