KNOW THE FACTS BEFORE YOU BOOK

  • 2 of 5

Location is very good, particularly for hiking the Rota Vicentina. The best sections of this trail run from just south of Odoceixe through to Zambujeira-do-mar. View is very good. Good local bread is available nearby on the N120. Odoceixe restaurants are pretty good. But we also recommend the restaurant in Azhena-do-mar. We booked 10 days and stayed for 8 days. However, before booking, you should know that you cannot flush toilet paper - it has to be put into a garbage can, which you will want to deliver to the garbage daily. The property is on a working farm on a hill accessed by a dirt road that is in very poor condition and can damage your vehicle if you are not careful. There are also shrubs that scrape against the side of the vehicle. The bed is very uncomfortable. The property outside is plagued with flies that prevent you from enjoying the view for long. There are plumbing problems with the bathroom sink, and you can burn yourself on fawcetts if not careful. All of the drains work very slowly. We didn't use the washer or stove. The housekeepers are very nice people, but do not speak any English, so you will need at least a Portuguese phrase book if you need to communicate with them. We noted the concerns with the owner of the property and they may be corrected in future. But we recommend asking about the issues mentioned above before you book. The owner is located in Lisbon and communication via Homeaway may take some time unless you call directly to Sonia.

Owner's Response: AND ALSO READ THIS It is with great surprise that I read this review and in fact does not seem that they were guests in my house; From the beginning they were very suspicious about the rental, thinking they could be deceived (check in time also). Always I tried to enlighten them in the best way. Two days before so check out they told me that would leave a day early, I asked whether they were satisfied and then they complained about the access, which in fact is in poor condition because of the Lorries from farms, but where a car can pass perfectly ; There are even several rural Tourism Hotels nearby, so the road will be repaired, as it is every year; - They also complained about septic tank and plumbing, I asked him if it was clogged or bad smells, for any misuse of previous guests, but only said there were noises, like a "symphony"; - After that, The plumbing and septic tank has been checked by an expert who found no problem, and that the noises are only the water running through the pipes, normal in all pipes; - In Europe it is common not to throw paper in the toilet when it is a septic tank, especially when we want to preserve nature, as we are in the natural park and protected area; - The water temperature can be regulated in the water heater, but is never hot to the point of burning; - The pressure of the taps is normal; - The beds are of orthopedic type, good quality, just the hard kind, but it is a matter of taste, I admit it can be uncomfortable for those who are not used to them - I know in North America the mattresses are extremely soft; I'll provide softer "sous" mattresses to the beds; - The house is located in the countryside, there are bushes and insects, birds, that for some is a paradise and place of contemplation, and for others it can be an unpleasant experience, the site well visible in the announcement; - The "plagues of flies" is a perfect exaggeration, no-one has ever experienced this it way; - All necessary information was given by me previously, and I'm always available for any questions by email or phone contact; - The house Keepers are simple people, very kind, always available to help, as they did with other guests, but communication is always with me, even if we have to make a phone call; - I try to be most accurate in the description of the advertisement, and It's always my intention to provide a pleasant stay to all guests, as it described by other guests's reviews and In the guestbook placed in the property;

"The cottage was clean and in a lovely quiet position. The beds were a little firm but this is just a personal matter. The cottage was very well equipped and has a great outdoor covered verandah."

Nice house in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

Our one week stay in Sonia´s house was great. The house itrself was very tidy and clean, well equiped and comfortable. We loved the view from the big terrace over the valley of the river and on the town. Up on the mountain it is absolutely quiet - a perfect atmosphere for relaxing.

The people that live behind the house were very friendly. Handing over the keys was easy.

The dirt road up to the house is not a problem at all (we had a Ford Focus), at least if it is not raining.

We would definitively recomnmend this guest house and hope we can come back some time.

Thanks for such a pleasant stay!

Super gemütliches Haus mit fantastischem Blick

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben uns in Sónias Haus sehr wohl gefühlt und viel Zeit auf der schönen Terrasse verbracht. Mit Blick auf Odeceixe in der Hängematte liegen, das haben wir bisher noch nicht erleben dürfen - grandios! Für uns hat alles gepasst, die tolle Lage des Hauses, die Stille, der einzigartige Blick und die freundlichen Nachbarn. Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!

des vacances paisibles dans la nature

  • 5 of 5

Cette maison est très agréable avec vue imprenable sur la vallée, au calme dans la nature, avec tout le nécessaire pour le confort de la famille.

Sonia est adorable et arrangeante, ainsi que les voisins qui sont très disponibles et généreux.

Idéal pour des vacances paisibles en famille, région magnifique avec des parcours de randonnée/trekk et des plages magnifiques aux alentours.
