The location is wonderful with a beautiful view on the lake in canicada. the sunset was amazing every night from the pergola. The house is so beautiful as well, never see a vacation house so well furnished in the kitchen but also in the outdoor games for the kids and the adults (ping pong table, swimming pool and balloons, baby foot, games in the kids bedroom, ...). everything was perfect. the linen has been changed each week and the swimming pool is cleaned each morning. Maria Gloria and her husband were also so nice and welcome us very specially. they pay attention to all and very tiny details to make you feel in vacations with all the comfort needed and everything is in a the detail. the garden is so beauctiful as well. flowers and green for gardener lovers as me it was just paradise. we will recommend this place and location to all our friends and relatives and will be more than pleased to come back. good restaurants all around. we recommend the pussada close to the house on saturday evening (barbecue buffet) with a specular view. we hiked in the geres park, place to visit: guimares, braga, porto, and the countryside. thank you, gloria and your husband for this great vacation!

The location and surrounding areas were just beautiful and the park and all the hiking trails were so easy to get to (with a hire car). Fernanda gave us a warm welcome and responded to our queries during our stay. She provides lots of helpful things like towels and a hairdryer to help you stay within Ryanair's luggage restrictions as well as useful information and maps of the local area. The kitchen is very well equipped too. We made full use of the bread man who comes every morning with freshly baked rolls. Thanks Fernanda for a lovely break - we're already hoping to return.
