A truly unique, private, woodland wonder! You cannot help but feel totally relaxed the minute you pass through the gates. From the main living area, you feel like you are in a treehouse, completely wrapped by nature. The living accommodation is very well laid out and suited our family perfectly (the teenagers could sleep well away from us!). From the leafy shade of the main house, the pool area was the complete opposite, with full sunshine all day, lovely eating areas and the 'man cave' which kept us all entertained.
If you are feeling active, there were canoes to take out onto the river which we enjoyed, even better:an early morning canoe when the morning mist is rolling along the river, followed by a hearty breakfast on the veranda.
There are plenty of very good restaurants nearby, which would suit all tastes and budgets. We found eating out extremely reasonable and pleasurable. Would recommend taking a look on trip advisor to find some superb restaurants within a 15 min drive.
The location of the property is great for exploring the region with very easy access into Porto itself and all the nearby attractions.
However, the best part of any day out was always coming back to the house for a late afternoon dip!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful hideaway.
The villa can be hard to find but when you do, wow. The gardens are well looked after with lemon apple and pear trees, there gapes hanging all round the edge of the garden. The pool is a good size and in the sun most of the day. The villa has all the amenities you need and if you have children the basement is perfect with table football and pool table. There is also a small cinema with about 10 up to date films. The nearest restaurant is about a 20 minute walk there a few local bars that take about 10 to fifteen minutes to walk to. Where the villa is situated is in a quiet location and the view to the hills are nice. Alexandra and her partner are really helpful and only a phone call away. We had fresh bread rolls delivered every day free of charge. Overall I can not fault the villa or the owners would love to come back again one day
