Great location with superior and stylish accommodation. Josephina is an excellent hostess and made our stay very comfortable. We loved Coimbra but regretted visiting Porto as it was too crowded. Penela castle is good to visit as is the Schist villages and Aveiro. Thank you for such a lovely stay!
Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers have just returned home from a most relaxing 12 night stay at Casa Bedrock. We found it to be everything that the property description promised. Beautiful, spacious, exceptionally well equipped and supremely comfortable.
We were delighted to receive Dave and Corinne’s excellent guidebook in the week before we arrived. They are extremely passionate about Casa Bedrock and the general area and it shows in spades when you flick through the guidebook. More than any other holiday villa owners we have encountered over the years, they are dedicated to ensuring that guests have the best holiday possible. From the time of booking (pre-Christmas 2017 ), we received many communications from Dave and got the sense that he was as excited about our planned holiday as we were!
The villa is set in a very peaceful rural location but less than a 15 minute drive on quiet roads to the good sized town of Ansiao which has a well stocked supermarket and a good choice of restaurants. Restaurante Caracol, which serves excellent food at equally good value, is just a 5 minute drive from the villa and proved to be our favourite. The owner Luis has good English and was very welcoming and attentive.
We had a hire car for the full duration of our stay and expected to use it to visit some of the many attractions and places mentioned in the guide book. However, upon settling in, we got very lazy and spent most days relaxing by the fabulous pool or in the spacious garden. We did enjoy morning walks from the villa on quiet tracks & roads relying entirely on the many routes mapped out by Dave and Corinne in the guidebook.
We were unable to find a bike hire service locally but after some online enquiries from the villa, found a hire service named “by bike” who advertise on Facebook. They supplied 2 mountain bikes with helmets for our teenage boys with delivery and collection from the villa. The bikes were of good quality and we found them to be punctual and much better value than other online bike hire companies.
Our 12 night stay at Casa Bedrock passed all too quickly. We would love to return, knowing that Dave and Corinne would do their utmost to ensure that our return visit would better the one before. A sincere thanks to Dave and Corinne for the wonderful stay had by all at their beautiful villa.
