Property was 'down at heel'. Garden was nice but in parts unsafe for children.

  • 2 of 5

Directions to the property were poor; when we eventually found it, no-one was there. Fortunately we found a neighbour who contacted the owner's representative, and we gained entry about an hour later.

The house had not been prepared, not cleaned etc.

The bed arrangements were unsatisfactory: the 'master' bedroom had two single beds pushed together - I have never slept in such an uncomfortable bed. Three of the single beds were on upstairs landings, and so children did not get to sleep easily.

The kitchen was very poorly equipped - no bread knife, no cereal bowls, no wine glasses, to name but a few.

The downstairs toilet did have a shower (as advertised), but it was full of 'stuff', which wasn't cleared out until several days after our arrival.

The outdoor pool was super, but no cleaning equipment was provided, and it was very difficult to get anyone to do anything about it. A poolside room which was part-built lacked safety fencing, resulting in an unprotected sheer drop of about 4 metres. The grass needed cutting when we arrived and it was not done until halfway through our two-week stay.

I was in frequent contact, by email, with the owner, who lives in Switzerland; none of his his local representatives spoke English, so we had to get by in French, as we don't speak Portuguese.

There was a complete lack of information about the area, or shops, doctors, etc.

Two of the owner's relatives, who did speak English, came by to try and help. They were quite shocked at the state of the property and lack of welcome.

The final straw came on our morning of departure - cleaners arrived shortly after 8am, and by 9am three of their children were using the pool!!

This is a beautiful area of Portugal and despite the disappointments of the property we really enjoyed our holiday. But in several respects it was unsuitable/unsafe for children, and we wouldn't consider staying there again.

Lovely property. Secluded, well equipped and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Owners communication was excellent. We were made to feel very welcome. The property is perfect if you want to be away from the crowds but still close enough to access many of the attractions of this beautiful area

Havre de paix.

  • 5 of 5

Un véritable coup de coeur pour la villa Franca! Un acceuil chaleureux dans un domaine merveilleux! Entre la piscine naturelle la piscine turquoise toute neuve la source la rivière le jardin bucolique et le cadre environnant vous ne serez plus où donner de la tête. La maison est très bien équipée et très fraîche. La propriétaire est très généreuse et sympathique toujours inquiéte de notre confort. Mes enfants mon mari mon gros chien et moi même nous vous recommandons d'aller rêver à la villa Franca.

Séjour très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Le site extérieur est magnifique et très bien entretenu: 2 piscines l une de 13 m de long somptueuse et l autre naturelle . Un vrai havre de paix .

L accueil des hôtes fut chaleureuse et sympathique.

Un bémol : l intérieur du gîte austere et sombre qui manque d éclairage et de modernité.

Sehr schön gelegen

  • 4 of 5

Die Lage ist herrlich, das Grundstück weitläufig und wunderschön. Das Haus ist normal ausgestattet und die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich. Da es sich um ein bewirtschaftetes Gut handelt, kann es allerdings sein, dass plötzlich Arbeitskräfte durch den Garten laufen - es ist also nichts für Leute, die nackt in der Sonne liegen wollen.

Area restaurants are excellent and very cheap, meat and wine are exceptional.

Enjoys the tranquility of the field and the mountain, but at the same time it is close to very large cities all linked by modern highways (A7-A3), such as:

12 Kms from the house you can visit the town of Cabeceiras de Basto;

Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage and European Capital of Culture 2012) - 50km

Porto - 100 km;

75 km from Spain (the border);

Braga -75 km;

Of 'Vila do Conde' beaches and 'Povoa de Varzim' is 45 minutes.
