Spotless and Spacious.

  • 5 of 5

A very nice property, lots of space and very well equipped. The owners were lovely, friendly and helpful. Superb location for beach and for sight seeing.

Amazing walks you can walk for miles along the board walks in both directions. There were an abundance of wild and cultivated flowers all along the coastal footpath and lots of wild birds and amazing lizards sunning themselves on large boulders. There was an excellent bakers just up the road for fresh bread and irresistable cakes! also a great butcher for fresh meat and of course fresh fish straight from the quayside.

We would stay again.

Off the beaten path, yet house/ area have all the amenities and charm coastal Portugal has to offerf

  • 5 of 5

Home is nestled in a seaside village about one block from the beach. The welcoming family could not have been more accommodating, providing a welcoming bottle of Port wine, and many suggestions of where to eat, how to buy fresh fish from the local boats, oysters from a nearby shellfish wholesaler (you'll need your own oyster knife to open them). There is a small neighborhood market immediately next door if you need something in a pinch. Recommendations for an all day market in the next village over, places to visit in Porto (Graham's Port Cellars), ease of travel up the Douro River valley for a luncheon getaway. From the hosting family's recommendation for a restaurant just one block away, we had several great fresh fish dinners. One evening we arrived a little late. The owner had sent his cook and English speaking waitress home. He called them back in to provide us with another great meal! Through the restaurant owner we met a local, now retired, boat builder/fisherman. While it was off season (early to mid February) Vila Cha has a small maritime museum, but it was closed. The manager of the museum just happened to be the boat builder. He opened the doors for us plus called a good friend who spoke English and gave us a personal tour.

We spent five days here during our three weeks traveling in Portugal. We would have to say the property owners were a great help in making us feel at home and offering local bits of information to make our stay a rememberable one.

Perfect place for a quiet family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of 4) spent 6 days in the house. The owners were friendly and helpful - in the Portuguese way: always available when needed, but never around just "by chance", friendly, but not unnaturally sweet (and that is what we appreciate the most).

The house can easily accommodate 6 - so it was more than enough for us. Extremely well equipped (from the washing machine to the dish washer and the grill, etc), clean, comfortable - with a huge, partly covered terrace, and closed parking for our (rented) car. (It might sound "nothing special" - but just after we arrived to Lisbon to our second, almost "similar" place, we realized how lucky we were near Porto.)

The ocean is literally in 2 mins walk, also quiet, with small cafes and restaurants here and there - everything is small scale but warm-hearted (I am sure that we spent our best evening in Portugal here: we just arrived to a small seaside restaurant before the owner closed for the day - he practically re-opened his place for us and provided us the most beautiful meal and the most spectacular two hours we had in this country...)

Shortly: a perfect place if you can/want to enjoy something that is relaxed, slow, small scale. And if you want more: Porto is just 35 mins by car.

We appreciate the well equipped kitchen, the washing machine, the courtyard, the location - just a walk away from the Atlantic and 20 minutes from Porto.

une villa charmante et bien située

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons logé 10 jours dans cette villa très bien équipée, très propre et fonctionnelle. Une cour intérieure fermée permet de manger dehors en toute tranquilité. La situation est idéale avec la station de métro pour Porto à 2 kilomètres et la proximité de la plage. Les propriétaires sont très accueillants et font tout pour vous faire passer un bon séjour tout en sachant rester discrets. Des commerces de première nécessité sont à quelques pas. De plus deux restaurants se situent dans un rayon de 100 mètres : l'Estaleiro, très simple mais correct et la Caravela, une vraie découverte (arroz marisco !!!) à ne pas manquer lors de votre séjour. Bref, une destination très recommandable qui vous fera découvrir tous les charmes de cette région du Portugal !

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Die Vermieter sind ausgesprochen freundlich und nett!

Das Haus ist schön und zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Alles sehr sauber und geschmackvoll.

Auch im Innenhof haben wir gemütliche Stunden verbracht, weil er sowohl Schatten wie auch Sonne bietet.

Das Dorf liegt ein wenig ab vom Touristenstrom, was wir sehr erholsam fanden. Man ist schnell zu Fuß am schönen Strand und mit dem Auto schnell in Porto oder in der Umgebung, um Sehenswürdigkeiten anzuschauen. Morgens kann man direkt vom Boot Fische beim Fischer kaufen. Auch ansonsten gibt es im Dorf alles, was man zum Leben braucht.

Jederzeit gerne wieder!
