We had a lovely stay at the villa, which has a gorgeous swimming pool and outside space. The facilities provided at the villa are good and the villa is very spacious with lots of rooms and bedrooms.
There's a local shop and bar just down the hillside [traditional old mountain side bar and shop], where you can get emergency provisions or a cool beer! The surrounding area is stunning and being in the mountains, means that at night the temperature cools off, which was great for the kids.
Whilst in the area we visited Porto, just over an hour away by car, the Douro Valley [Great Port Vineyards] 2 hrs away and Braga, 1/2hr away.
Would definitely recommend.
We very much enjoyed the peace and comfort of our rented accommodation. Our hosts were welcoming, helpful and friendly. We loved being near the river and the gardens surrounding the house are very well designed. Just a suggestion on behalf of guests who like to walk and explore the natural surroundings - paths from the property to existing footpaths could be indicated. This is a very minor detail, however - overall, we were entirely satisfied with our holiday and would recommend the Quinta to friends.
