Very welcoming

  • 4 of 5

Is a comfortable and well located house in the middle of the natural reserve of Peneda Gerês in the north of Portugal. It is worth spending a couple of days in this beautiful site next to a river bank.

Wonderful. The perfect location for "away of it all".

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at Paulo's house for two wonderful weeks. The house is great, very comfortable and pleasant, two secs from the lake (and you get to use the canoe and even windsurf if you know how to deal with it) and the pool. Great location with wonderful nature.

Although it was a little problem with the Internet Paulo was very helpful and sorted it out.

To make a long story short - highly recommended.

Thank you for giving our family a lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at you villa, and really enjoyed North Portugal so much! We did visit the Peneda Geres park several times hiking and sight seeing, and also Guimaraes. The pool was lovely also. The villa was very comfortable and we loved it! We had everything we needed, and Isabel was very helpful. Thank you for always responding to our calls for help - I hope we didn't bother you too much.

We were sad to leave Portugal, a country we have come to love. Thank you for giving our family a lovely holiday! I hope you and your family are all well!

Séjour "nature" et calme.

  • 4 of 5

2 semaines de séjour, des considérations à relativiser selon vos attentes...

les plus :

- maison spacieuse et "habitée" (bibelots, déco, DVD, etc...).

- la terrasse est un vrai plus par rapport aux autres maison du lotissement

- mise à disposition d'un canoé pour les ballades sur le lac. Piscine commune au lotissement.

- simplicité pour l'installation et le départ.

les moins :

- accueil par une personne ne parlant ni anglais, ni français. La gestion du quotidien n'en est pas simplifiée (approvisionnement gaz défaillant dans notre cas, pas d'eau chaude le dernier jour).

- photos réalistes, mais électroménager et sanitaires vieillissants, des éclairages défaillants.

les neutres :

- ambiance station balnéaire désaffectée (lotissement, accès lac,...)

- les courses à Salto, approximativement 10 km.

- pas de connexion internet.

vies en afgelegen

  • 1 of 5

Dit huis was vies, overal dode vliegen, en ik koffiezetapp zelfs larven! Mieren in de hele keuken blijkbaar vanwege lekkers in de afgesloten kastjes. De WC lekte heftig via zijkant, waardoor er continue een enorme stank was. De tegels in badkamer waren kapot en veel voegen waren weg, hierdoor kan je ook nooit goed schoonmaken. De badkamerkastjes/lades waren te smerig. Ik heb overigens foto's gemaakt als bewijs.

Het zwembad is een eindje lopen (echt 3 straten verder), waardoor je geen zicht hebt op de kids. De lokale buurman heeft 7 (!) honden die hij uitlaat bij het meer, waar het dus vol ligt met hondenpoep. Hierdoor kan je ook daar niet terecht. Er zijn ook veel (zwerf?)katten die uit de prullenbakken komen. Het is er totaal afgelegen, nergens een leuk restaurant/ koffie-café te vinden. Er waren slechts 2 buitenstoelen beschikbaar, terwijl het huis geschikt zou moeten zijn voor 6 personen.

Ontvangst was ok (door Manuel), maar Isabel was kortaf en snauwde en spreekt geen Engels. We kregen ook met veel moeite halverwege de week schone handdoeken van haar (terwijl je wel 2x per dag wil douchen als je geen airco hebt en het boven de 30 graden is). Pablo was allervriendelijkst via app bereikbaar, maar loste niets op... Het bed was klein en hard. Een deel van het huis was afgesloten, dus van de beloofde 180m2, wordt niets waargemaakt. Wifi deed het geregeld niet.

Er ligt GEEN boekje met advies over hoe de wifi werkt, wat code is, waar dichtstbijzijnde supermarkt is, waar je vuilnis kan weggooien etc.

Tot slot bleek bij vertrek niemand vindbaar om de sleutel in te leveren en konden we naar onze borg fluiten. Bij navraag hoorden we dat Pablo het beloofde over te maken.. En hij vertelde dat je uiteraard gewoon sleutel ergens kan verstoppen. Bizar dat dit niet vooraf wordt gemeld! na 1 week staats er nog niets op mijn rekening, hopelijk komt het nog..

Cadre des plus agréable pour un séjour au calme

  • 4 of 5

On est passé des vacances reposante dans cadre agréable. Les paysages autour sont très jolies. Beaucoup de cascades magnifique dans la réserve naturelle, cascade taihiti à 40 min. Un air de pique nique à 10 min de la maison très sympa avec possibilité de baignade sur place.

On a passé de très bonne vacance. Paulo nous a fait un accueil chaleureux malgré ses difficultés en français, il s'est rendu disponible pour nous donner les conseils à un bon séjour. Il nous a fait partager son travail, en nous faisant partager sa récolte de myrtilles que nos enfants ont adoré.

Merci encore Paolo
