Bars and stunning beach within 5 mins walk. Porto half hour drive away is a must. Also a new large shopping centre 10 mins away with over 130 shops. Vila do Conde a small town away with lots of bars, restaurants , supermarket, beach and a big market on Friday. Food really good and so cheap. People really friendly and very clean . Would recommend this lovely villa for large family or group of friends, Carlos was very accommodating and allowed us to stay till late for free. Christina and her son and daughter were lovely and gave us good recommendations to eat at just 5 euros a head. Only one small thing that not really suitable for young children as they are open steps to the pool and large open staircase. Can't wait to return

Our flight times were changed to a later departure time a few weeks before flying, so Filomena and her husband kindly picked us up from airport. As it was around midnight that we arrived at apartment Filomena had been kind enough to have got some provisions in for us , which we were really grateful for. The appartment was lovely, consisting of entrance hall, a comfortable lounge/ dining room, large well equipped kitchen ...both with doors leading to a large balcony. Bathroom with shower cubicle and another bathroom with shower over the bath. 2 good sized bedrooms . The master bedroom had a balcony . Wifi is available. The appartment is across the road from the beach with snack bars and restaurants near. Lidl is just down the road and the town is 10 min walk with bars and restaurants. There is a market on a Friday in the market place (opposite the tourist office) Filomena emailed me in the week to check everything was good and I knew if we did have a problem she would help. I would recommend this appartment to my family and friends and would stay there again. Thank you Filomena it was a pleasure to meet you.
