Things to do

-Old town: The historic town centre of Marco de Canaveses is a great place to tour if only to marvel at the unique architecture of the buildings there. The Santa Maria Church, the Vinhal Tower and the Town Hall are stunning examples of distinct architectural styling that give this town a unique flavour.

-River Douro: One of the two rivers flowing through this locale is River Douro and there are few views more soothing and relaxing than that seen from across the Douro. Indeed, this is one of the prettiest spots in Porto. Tourists bearing pent-up stress from their hectic daily routines need only take a walk along this river or across any of its bridges to recapture the joy of living. Viewing the sunset from where the river drains into the ocean is a photographer’s dream.

-Zona Ribeirinha: This broadwalk enables visitors to enjoy all the delights of Oporto in one fell swoop; a lively, celebratory ambience with magnificent views all round, a host of bars and restaurants offering a tantalising range of repasts and beverages and bargain hunting in markets. 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.

-Food and drink: One of the greatest treats of a Porto holiday is the part where one gets to dig into Portuguese specialities served in ambient establishments like the ODE Porto Wine House. Most visitors have declared this diner one of Portugal’s finest and with good reason. The skilled chef garnishes each of his servings with authentic Portuguese ingredients and visitors can get tasty local wine to go with their dish.

Weather in Marco de Canaveses

The weather in this locale varies greatly in that it can be extremely scorching in summer and get very chilly in winter. Temperatures close to the 40°C mark are not unheard of between July and August while towards the northern reaches of the city where the place gets mountainous, winter temperatures can fall as low as -10°C. Fog and snow cover the landscape at this time of year. Summer is by contrast hot and dry, with hardly any rainfall being recorded from June to August.

Travel to Marco de Canaveses

To get to their Marco de Canaveses holiday homes visitors will first need to fly into Portugal via Porto’s Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport. It is the country’s second-busiest airport and it welcomes both regular scheduled flights and seasonal flights from most major European cities. From there travellers will have the option of taking the Metro or a bus. They could also opt for taxis which are just outside the Arrivals.

WOW - Holiday of a LIFETIME!

5 of 5
I can't even find the right words to begin how to explain the place! Overall I would say that - within about 1 hour of arriving and sitting down I was enveloped in a sense of tranquility and peace that I have not experienced for a very long time. I have a very busy lifestyle and career and this one week stay completely 'recharged my batteries' We flew into Porto and we were 2 couples in our early 40's with 3 kids. The journey from the airport didn't take as long as we thought - about 1 hour. The location is really unusual and dramatic! Literally you are right on the rivers edge with the most amazing views! The swimming pool was sooo cool...it's actually built into the edge of the river - it was a surreal experience. My husband has a boating licence so we were able to use the small yacht - BUT there is a super water taxi service - you just give them a quick call and they come across the river to get you - you have 2 destinations.....across the river to a cute village called aregos where there's a thermal spa and a decent bistro/cafe with good food at very reasonable prices. OR - you go along the river to the Aregos train station and you can catch the tourist train which takes you to places like Regua and Pinhao up the Douro river or down the river to Porto......we did both river taxi rides .........beautiful scenery. Shopping an other amenities are all within a 10-15 minute drive. Fernando, Manuel and Anabela could not have been more charming and welcoming and supportive throughout our stay. I really truly highly recommend this house and area! There is a local one carriage train that passes by the house......NOT an issue - its once an hour and makes a low rumble for 2 seconds and you don't even hear it in the house........we were concerned about that when we saw the house online, but after to speaking to Fernando and Anabela we decided to trust their feedback and they were true and honest...it was NOT a problem at ALL! :-)

Very good, excellent value

4 of 5
Well equipped lovely kitchen. Great views from rear of the property. Aircon in two bedrooms and lounge. Accommodation overal very good, most impressed with the huge television and supply of DVDs. Nice pool area and fruit trees in lower garden. The house information book full of useful information and owner available to supply any information required. Local shops and two large supermarkets a short drive away.
