The house was luxurious with many bed and bath rooms, necessary for senior citizens. Kitchen was well equipped. What was not available immediately was brought by the very helpful patron. His instructions and advise were welcomed, as well. Many thanks!
The situation of the house was in the middle of small village with a small shop around the corner and a larger one two km away. The town Esposende with wider shopping and restaurant services was not very far either, just some ten minutes drive from the house. A most beautiful parts and attractions of northern Portugal were near by in the reach of an hour or two.
There was only one minor thing to be dissatisfied with: The house was near or in the middle of agriculture area, poultry and pigs (?) etc. Due to that there was a slight smell of manure in the air all the time (not so disturbing!). More disturbing was the multitude of flies which prevented us to enjoy meals outdoors.
However, the overall impression was excellent. We enjoyed!
With thankful regards Jussi Ravela
A spacious, relaxed and comfortable property with plenty of room for our family party of 8 adults, with space for gathering as a large group or taking time out as a couple or smaller gang. Incredible access to a beautiful beach ( 3 minutes walk) and riverside boardwalk running through a nature reserve. Plenty of equipment at the house, including bikes and a canoe, and a well-equipped kitchen. Friendly surfer vibe in the local hamlet Ofir, with relaxed bars and restaurants in easy walking distance, and fabulous fish restaurants a very short drive away. Friendly hosts who sorted out a minor issue caused by a local power outtage very quickly. Only downside was the unheated pool, which even in August felt freezing - if heated, this would have been an absolute dream property. Easy access to and from Porto via an express metro a few miles away meant that this was a perfect location for a day exploring the city. Would definitely recommend
