We didn't travel far from the house as everything we required was there. It is very well equipped with quality fittings. The main feature for us was the beautiful pool and lovely garden. We were impressed with the variety of birds around especially the nightly arrival of the storks. The walk to the nearby river Minho, (20minutes), is recommended. It is also ideal for cycling along the river bank.

Our children loved the swimming pool, which is a good size. We really liked the split level layout which meant that the bedrooms were on two floors and gave the family space to get away from each other. The owner lives nearby, which gave us peace of mind, if we had any problems. We were delighted to come back on the day the maid visited to find lovely fresh clean linen on the beds and the kitchen and living room all clean. Thoroughly recommend Northern Portugal as a holiday destination, the motorways meant that you are never very far away from anywhere between Porto and Santiago in Spain. The coastline is littered with lovely beaches, people are friendly, and the towns offer lots of history. Don't miss a trip to Santiago de Compostela. And whatever you read, you do NOT need to pay to go into the Cathedral, the entrance is not where the visitor centre is (for tours), but round the side!

Sam kept the pool and surrounding area spotlessly clean and both cottages were lovely inside. Covas is a really interesting village in beautiful surroundings. A very relaxing rural retreat but with plenty to do within easy driving distance. Recommended.
