Fernanda was very welcoming on our arrival, and the house has a lovely atmosphere and was clean and with all the equipment we needed. There is no internet in the house and not much 4G reception apart from on the terrace — but for us, getting away from the internet was perfect. The garden is like a mini paradise, with a lovely view from the terrace down to the lake where you can swim (5 minutes walk down the hill). You can hang a bag on the fence to have bread rolls delivered in the early morning, and on Sundays you can hear some lovely choir song drifting on the wind from a chapel nearby. The house is very private and the outside area is secluded. The location is great to access all kinds of outdoor activities — we mainly walked on some of the many trails through the national park, but there are also lots of other activities (riding, climbing, water-ski etc). You will need a car to get around though! Thank you Fernanda, it was great!

The house is huge, and includes a pool room which we used every night. The kitchen is well equipped, and there is plenty of storage. We particularly loved sitting outside for all our meals - the view over the pool across the valley is amazing, and it's a great spot for parents to chill in when their children are playing. There is a lot to do in the area - we loved Braga and Guimaraes and even went to the beach in Apulia. We also loved the fact this area isn't too touristy so you get a sense of the real Portugal. 100% recommended!
