About the property

Situated in the hills of one of the most beautiful villages of northern Portugal, this delightful well equipped villa is ideal for smaller parties wanting to take advantage of the peaceful surroundings and admirable views.

The house has a lovely atmosphere and displays a pleasing range of carefully chosen furnishings. It is within a large, private walled garden. A comfortable sitting room opens onto a shaded terrace overlooking the pool, with table and chairs perfect for outside eating.

Whilst the property enjoys a rural setting, amenities are nevertheless close to hand. Restaurant, mini market, bar and local shop in the village only about 2,000 metres from the house.

A lovely holiday villa with superb river views.
average rating of 3.0 based on 2 reviews

Beautiful villa but beware cold weather as you will be asked to pay a lot extra for heating!

  • 2 of 5

The property location is stunning, the views are just like the photographs and the villa is spacious. The kitchen is well equipped however there are no coffee making facilities apart from a machine that requires capsules that were unavailable locally.

Unfortunately it was 4 days until broadband was provided which was an issue with work commitments.

After paying for the villa we were surprised when we were asked to pay an additional amount for heating which we thought exorbitant and refused. We were there end of April/beginning of May and unlucky with the weather which was variable and the villa was extremely cold. There is a fireplace but no logs provided.

The master bathroom had drainage problems, the shower took all day to drain and it wasn't pleasant having a shower standing in cold water.

There was also an ant infestation in the same bathroom.
