Fabulous Holiday - Super House & Super Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous house about 12 minutes from Barcelos - was a little tricky to find at first but Fernando and Gustavo were excellent at guiding us.

We flew into Porto and then after our stay we went to Galicia in Spain and flew from Vigo.

Porto was about 40 minutes by car and I reckon Vigo would take you about 1hr and 10 - but it might be worth it as the flights can be very cheap to there.

The house is very big and spacious/comfortable but the outside space was the major highlight for us - great pool (fenced off to protect kids) a multi-purpose court (5 a side football - tennis etc) and a hall with a badminton net. Gustavo supplied rackets and balls

The setting is also very nice and although we worried about seeing a railway track on the map when we booked - it was plenty far away not t interfere with our stay.

I noticed a comment on another review about the over being 'dangerous' - my brother-in-law did a lot of cooking and there was nothing wrong with the oven.

Barcelos was a delightful town and with Gustavo's help we ate at a few excellent restaurants - we did a couple of day trips but only a couple as the setting was so lovely at the house we couldn't be bothered to move! Ponte de Lima and Braga were not far away (30 minutes max) and very nice. Half an hour in the car and we visited the wonderful beaches near and around Esposende and we ate great fish at 'A Cabana'

Great stay and highly recommended

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Very nice large holiday home - exactly as described - lots for us to do, super swimming pool and other games facilities.

You will need a car, but for us that was not a problem. Everything is actually closer than we expected, shops and nice restaurant was only 5 minute away, Barcelos was only about 10 minutes - Barcelos is so nice - great open spaces and nice open air market every week

We explored a little while we were there, Braga was only 20 minutes away and is a superb city. We also did a day trip to Porto, again another superb city.

We love Portugal and normally go to the algarve but we were recommended to fly to the north in Porto and we are so pleased we did. I would say the major selling points were; less crowded, friendlier, cheaper, better value for money and wonderful and green scenery all around.

What made our stay even better was the excellent help and advice we received from fernando and also Gustavo.

Superb Large Holiday Home - Great Holidau

  • 5 of 5

Super super - large home - very private - great facilities - the children loved the pool, the football and the other games

You need a car but it's worth it!

Great restaurants and the town of Barcelos (12 minutes by car) is really cute!

We even went to the beach a few times which was really easy and takes about 30 minutes

We would definitely consider returning - the owners were very very helpful throughout our stay.

Beautiful house, bad experience

  • 3 of 5

We booked the house on July 11th from July 17th to July 27th (10 days). The house is very large, appropriate for a big family like mine (we are 7). It has a nice dining room and a big pool. We were a little concerned about the gas oven, which could be dangerous. Unfortunately, we didn't get to enjoy our vacation because my mother broke her hip and we had to go back home, so we only ended up staying 3 days in the house. We asked if some partial refund was possible and we are still waiting for an answer. ☹️☹️

Owner's Response: Dear Sir There is NOTHING wrong with the oven and NONE of our many many guests have had ANY problem with the oven - we use many other websites for our bookings and the reviews are ALL 5* or 4*...NO DANGEROUS OVEN MESSAGES! You also need to be careful when you try to justify cancelling your stay in the middle of your vacation. Your story about your 'mother' was very different when you left and your were offered a letter for your insurance company to recover your losses. However as we BOTH know you need to provide proof of your mother's condition to the insurance company - which 'strangely' was not available to support an insurance claim - so now you seek to act your 'revenge' by writing this review - I'm not sure if you have heard of 'Karma' but you have plenty of it on your way! However I'm sure the intelligent people reading this will have seen the other reviews and will see that actually you liked the house and they will also find it strange that this 'DANGEROUS' oven has 'mysteriously' NOT been reported in ANY reviews either immediately before your stay OR immediately after your stay. I'm also sure the intelligent people reading this review will decide for themselves whether your review and the fact you didn't get any refund is all JUST a coincidence......or not! :-) We hope your 'mother' is better because you haven't received any refund
