2 bedroom house available, with kitchen and 1 bathroom, for holiday rentals, in Avintes (near Porto), with garden.

The house has heating in all rooms. The kitchen is equipped with ceramic hob, oven, fridge, cooking utensils and crockery. Are always available oil, olive oil and some basic spices.

Nineteenth century house, charming, recently refurbished and fully furnished house, ideal for people looking for a temporary rental. This is an ecological house with regard to the techniques used in its restoration, and also because we reused old furniture. Along side with this, we created conditions for the separation and recycling of garbage, specially the one required to make homemade compost.

Located in a peaceful, and extremely beautiful semi-rural area, 100 meters away from the Douro river. You can take nice walks along the river, have your meals in the garden under the shade of vines and have a good night sleep in a very quiet place.

The place, called Espinhaço, was inhabited at least since the eighteenth century, mostly by fishermen. It is an ancient village with narrow, winding streets. Today it is a place of good-natured simple people.

In the village of avintes we highlighted as the main landmark the Gaia Biological Park, interesting project of nature conservation.

Located only 9Km from Porto center, near the main highways that connect the north and south of the country and 27km from Porto's Airport. Nearby there is public transport but with very limited schedules. A car is required.

What makes this unique? You can visit the city (not only Oporto, the closest one, but also Guimarâes, Braga, Vila do Conde, Viana do Castelo) and, when returning home, eat and sleep like if you were in the field. You may also decide to do nothing, just sunbathing in the garden, reading, relaxing, enjoying nature, walking ...

"Un secret bien gardé ...jusqu'à maintenant!"

Nous avons eu le privilège de découvrir cette magnifique maison ancestrale à 15 minutes de Porto. Parfait pour allier les visites et la détente. Comme famille, nous avons bénéficié d'une maison parfaite pour notre confort au milieu d'un jardin paisible. En plus de recevoir de précieux conseils de Teresa et Pedro, nous avons profité d'un accueil chaleureux où oeufs frais et pain chaud nous attendait à notre arrivée. Tout simplement un coup de coeur ! Encore une fois merci à Teresa et Pedro pour votre magnifique demeure. C'est un secret bien gardé...jusqu'à maintenant !

"Restful and reenergising eden with Douro at your step"

The house is lovely - typical good taste of simplicity, comfort and a special nordic portuguese welcoming aura. Homely and totally restful (very difficult not to wish staying for longer than expected). Outstanding rehabilitation of a traditional and genuine provincial house of the North of Portugal.
The garden allows a beautiful sunset view over the Douro river which is always flowing down the hill and always at your sight. The only time of the day I was reminded that time exists was precisely when the sun finally sets and hides plunging in the Douro. The breakfasts facing the landscape in between the vines were elected the best possible start of the day.
The owners, Pedro, Teresa are welcoming and present when you need them and if you're after a good chat they're the best persons to provide it - they know the area like no one else and are able to advise for the best routes to get to a place or other general or more specific information about how to best enjoy Porto town, for instance, which you should never dismiss a visit to (20 minutes away).
If you wish to explore the North of Portugal and all its lovely several magic old historical towns and luxuriant countryside and landscapes with the joys of spending some time in the second biggest city in the country - with an unforgettable night life and surprising little corners of architectural delight, then this is the right place to stay - either to fully rest after a long day exploring the area or the seaside (the northwest coast is ornamented with a fantastic seaside) or even staying at home enjoying the peaceful house and garden - reading, chatting, meditating, however you please and fancy.
I want to go back. Soon. I went this Summer and I'm just curious of how the other seasons would please me as much. *****

"Günstiges gepflegtes haus etwas außerhalb mit Familien Anschluss"

Sehr nette zuvorkommende Vermieter und sehr hilfsbereit.Auto ist erforderlich,da es eher abseits von Porto ist. Ursprüngliches Portugal mit super Blick auf den Duoro.Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der Nähe. Guter Standort für Ausflugsmöglichkeiten ins Inland und südlich gelegende Strände von Porto.
