You haven’t visited Porto until you’ve strolled through this wharf and holidaymakers residing in Marco de Canaveses holiday homes will find it’s no big hassle getting there.

The skilled chef garnishes each of his servings with authentic Portuguese ingredients and visitors can get tasty local wine to go with their dish.

The house has a charming mixture of antique furniture, paintings, sketches and port wine memorabilia, all of which we found interesting to look at and gave it a lovely atmosphere and sense of history. The kitchen was well equipped, the big fridge freezer was great and made self catering easy. The grounds with their citrus and olive trees were pleasant to wander through and we enjoyed the privacy of not being overlooked by other properties. We loved having so many different areas to sit and admire the views from. The pool and pool area were excellent, we appreciated the shade from the pergola but also the stunning views across the Douro Valley and it was a great place from which to admire the sunsets. We nicknamed the little area under the wisteria with two benches and table 'G&T terrace', and it was a great place for a morning cuppa whilst watching the sunrise or a late afternoon aperitif. Most of all, we just loved watching the view over the valley as it looked so different throughout the day depending on what the light was doing. Early morning mist burning off the water, golden late afternoon sun and twinkling lights at night all gave an endless supply of things to look at and admire which we found deeply relaxing. When we did tear ourselves away we made good use of the trains from Mosteiro (only a short drive away, the man in the ticket office was very helpful), visiting Porto for the day, a day in Tua and Pinhão for lunch, siteseeing and port tasting and then back to Pinhão for lunch and a river boat cruise. The train is well worth using as it follows the river bank and gives great views along the way. We used the hire car to visit Lamego, Amarente (particularly lovely to wander round) and Cinfaes. Francisco was very welcoming, helpful and discrete. We knew we could ask him for help if we needed it but appreciated being left to our own devices for complete privacy, peace and quiet. This is a very special place and one to which we hope to return. Muito obrigada, Francisco!

                                                                                                      This is an idyllic place to stay, especially if you want to relax by the pool. It is however very challenging getting a car up to the property, there are also a lot of steps to get up to the villa. The villa itself is spacious and comfortable, my only gripe is that kitchen utensils were sparse if you plan to cook meals. We enjoyed the covered patio area which was nice for eating outside with a good barbecue. The area around the pool was also very nice. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here.
