The house has a fabulous view over the river Douro that passes next to the farm in a stretch of 2000 meters of the farmland. The situation of the house is very good.

We had a very nice experience of staying in Duoro Valley - in Casa da Povoa! Nice place, wonderful views, beautiful (and very tasty:)) garden, and a Very Hospitable Master!

The fruits on trees were so delicious! The Old kitchen is so warm and cosy...

Señor Alexandre was very helpful in all our wishes and problems:))) In any case don't deny from Rosario's service - everything will be managed.

Portugal erlebt

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 ältere Ehepaare) haben während unseres Aufenthalts in der Casa da Povoa den Eindruck gehabt, allein mit diesem Haus, das in der Geschichte und im Boden des Landes verwurzelt ist, ein Stück Portugal zu erleben. Angefangen mit der hilfreichen und informativen Korrespondenz mit Alexandre, dem herzlichen Empfang und der Einladung zum Essen am Abend unserer Ankunft bis hin zu den fürsorglichen Tipps und Ratschlägen Alexandres, war die Grundlage für ein angenehmen Aufenthalt geschaffen. Die herrschaftlichen, passend möbilierten Räume, der große Garten mit seinen Früchten und das schöne Schwimmbad laden zu einem entspannten Urlaub ein. Kleinere technische Unvollkommenheiten (z.B. in den Bädern) sollte man eher zum Ambiente des Hauses passend als störend empfinden. Die Casa da Povoa hätte wirklich eine bessere deutschsprachige Präsentation auf der FewoDirekt-Seite verdient!
