The property is just as pictured - beautiful views great outdoor areas and space for everyone. Recommend having a car though both for shopping and sight seeing

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The house is spacious and lies within vast grounds with lots of exploring for children. The welcome pack was very generous. Minor problems include a shortage of hot water so that showers must be spaced. All in all a very good base from which to experience life in the Duoro valley.
