Make a holiday rental house, villa in North Portugal your home away from home

North Portugal includes some of the wildest regions of Portugal. Many of the oldest, most unspoilt and beautiful areas of Portugal are hidden in the relatively un-discovered region of North Portugal. Consisting of green rolling hills, dramatic river valleys, a rugged coastline and a magnificently slow pace of life, holiday accommodation in Northern Portugal brings you as close as is possible to authentic Portuguese culture and scenery, away from the huge summer crowds which grace the more famous holiday regions of Portugal.

Lovely apartment in a lovely part of Porto

5 of 5
Overall, we were very impressed. Beautiful apartment immaculate condition. The only slight issue and this is not a criticism,is mobility issues for the elderly. Would definitely visit again.

perfect holiday house for a family

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay and found the house exactly like on the pictures. Neat and tidy. Maria was a very helpful host. We specialy appreciated the delivery of fresh bread every morning and our kids loved the pool of course. Thank you Maria for your hospitality. Annett
