Superb Property, Great Location, Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5

A truly superb property. Very spacious and very clean and tidy and topped off with a private pool for our use. The games room was and added feature that was used almost non-stop by the 'big kids' in our party. The villa owner went 'above and beyond' to help us when one of our party had a medical emergency during our stay, volunteering to act as taxi and interpreter and to help source best hospital for treatment. Cannot thank them enough. Would definitely recommend a stay here

Beautiful property, peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The property is amazing, and the photos on the site somehow don't manage to do it justice.

The rooms are all a really good size, well equipped and spotless. The outside eating space with BBQ is lovely and pool is fab. There were 6 of us staying in the villa and there was plenty of space so you didn't feel like you were tripping over each other.

The football pitch, tennis court and games room were an added bonus and provided lots of entertainment. There are also some great running and walking routes from the villa, particularly along the boardwalk through the local nature reserve.

Loved our stay and would highly recommend the villa. The local beaches are also stunning and it's a perfect location for day trips into Porto.

La maison est très belle, très grande et très fonctionnelle. La qualité de la literie est excellente.

En plus, le propriétaire est très sympathique et très discret.

Aucun regret, rien que du bonheur! Nous étions 4 couples et l'avis est unanime.
