Perfect House for young groups!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the River House with a group of 16 young guys in the age between 20 and 23. The house is absolutly perfect for relaxing holidays with a lot of possibilities for activities! Cycling, Canoe, Volleyball, Pool ... it was never boring! The highlight was the whirlpool we used every evening.

The distance to the beach by bike is about 10-15 minutes, absolutly ok, the beach is great, gooy waves for surfing and not too much tourists.

For us it was no problem to celebrate in the evening at the house, there were no complanations by neighbours etc. The House owner Manuel is absolute uncomplicated and reliable, for example he gave us more bikes so that we had enough for the group.

All an all a great accomodation for young groups who like a mix between an activating and relaxing holiday trip!

Férias fantásticas

  • 5 of 5

Casa com todas as comodidades, muito bem equipada e grande espaço para as crianças brincarem. A piscina aquecida é fantástica e o spa fez as delícias dos adultos. O rio é muito limpo e, com o calor que se fez sentir este Verão, proporcionou uns fantásticos banhos e brincadeiras com as canoas!!

O Manuel foi muito simpático e prestável, indicando-nos todos os sítios que poderíamos visitar nas redondezas, incluindo as praias. Muito bom!

Iremos voltar mais vezes!! Recomendamos vivamente :)))
