Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Viana do Castelo - Casa da Eira

Independent 4+1 sleeps villa in a rural quiet private environment village

Our property is a 2800sq m space where we (a 4 person family) live at the major house. We speak English, Spanish and French & we like to know people. The villa we rent now, was our home in the beginning. It's a house with 2 double bedrooms each one with WC, TV and a sitting room with couchbed. Near by there is a complete kitchen (with washing machine and microwave) & a very pleasant place for the meals inside or outside at the sun. Free Internet (wifi) all over the space.Our place is located in a small village (4km from the town center, Viana do Castelo) but in 1km you can buy everything. We are 300m from a beautiful river where you can go for a walk or ride on bike. If you prefer to rest, we have a large pool and a big quiet garden with fruit trees to take a nap or read among other things. We will have some gastronomic courtesies for you during your stay. Our space is totally private. We'll provide towels changing (when necessary), and bed clothes changing once a week. The capacity is ideal, a couple and 2/3 children or 4 person 1child.

Lovely house with superb pool, very friendly owner

  • 5 of 5

The very clean house is located in a small village close to the city of Viana do Castelo. It has a spacious kitchen area and a huge garden with plenty of cosy seats and sun beds. The clear water of the large and well maintained pool was enjoyed by our children every minute of our stay and big enough for exercising as well. Gils english is perfect and he is very good at finding the balance between giving privacy and helping out and/or advising. He senses your needs and adapts to that. When our car broke down Gil was extremely helpfull and arranged that his garage prioritized the repair of our car. This was a very good example of the great hospitality that we encountered on more occasions during our stay in Portugal.

Various nice beaches with life guards and bodyboarding/surfing possibilities are within half an hour reach.

A wonderful, ideal holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the villa was absolutely fantastic! My wife and I and our twin two-year-old boys spent two fabulous weeks at the villa, and we can't say enough about it. Gil and his family provided us with warm friendliness, clean and comfortable accommodation, and a genuine interest in making sure our vacation was as enjoyable as possible. The villa is in a relaxing and inspiring location, and yet is conveniently located to many interesting places both in Viana and the outlying countryside. Our boys thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the courtyard area. It was very convenient for us to make our own meals, and everything was self-contained and handy. Gil truly makes his guests feel welcome and goes the extra mile to make sure they feel at home. Our family would love to come back, and we tell all our Canadian friends about it. All in all, the villa is a comfortable and well-equipped location for a holiday--the ideal getaway.

Gil and his family provided us with the perfect holiday.The bungalow and grounds were kept scrupulouly clean. The pool huge and equally clean. The kitchen beautifully laid out to cook for my young family. The attention to detail was amazing and all done completely unobtrusively.

Local restaurants all provide food and service of an excellent standard and the town of Viana is truly varied and beautiful. Highly Recommended.

Unas vacaciones perfectas

  • 5 of 5

Han sido nuestras primeras vacaciones en familia, sin ningún otro familiar o amigo. Con mi mujer y nuestros dos hijos pequeños (4 y 2 años), nos decidimos de un día para otro a viajar a Portugal, tuvimos la suerte de contactar con Gil y desde el primer momento todo fueron facilidades.

Buscábamos algo tranquilo, con piscina y zona verde, para disfrutarlo con los niños y a la vez estar tranquilos. Todas las expectativas que teníamos fueron superadas, la estancia muy agradable, todo muy limpio, equipado y bien cuidado, el trato con Gil y su familia inmejorable y la casa, perfecta para nuestras necesidades.

Decir, que buscábamos tranquilidad y no desplazarnos, pero es verdad que muy cerca hay varios sitios muy buenos para hacer compra, una panadería donde siempre hay pan caliente y buenos restaurantes, uno sale en la guia Michelin, además Viana do Castelo está a 4km, se llega en un momento.

Unas vacaciones que siempre recordaremos y que esperamos repetir los próximos veranos.

Muchas gracias por todo!!!!!

There is a nice mall, a lot of very good restaurants with a great variety of gastronomic dishes. We are 70km from Oporto's airport and Vigo's airport(in Spain-Galicia), served by highways.
