“Excellent apartment and great area”
This apartment is more of a family home than a holiday apartment. It has all the facilities you need to relax and enjoy your holiday. Well situated for the beach, local restaurants and the train, which is 4 minutes away and so cheap it makes travelling around the area really easy. The beach at Granja is good and the facilities at Espinho beach (football and volleyball) make it worth the extra distance to travel. Restaurants that we loved include O Escuteiro (across the road), Ciao Bella (Aguda) and Snopao (both for value meals and daily bread). Porto is well worth visiting, especially the Ribeira district (by the river) and the football stadium. This was our first ever holiday in Portugal and we really enjoyed ourselves.
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted you had a good stay in our apartment and enjoyed exploring this area of Portugal. We look forward to welcoming you back. We offer discount for return bookings. Thank you.
Customer service was outstanding with contact via email and text both before and during our stay. We booked two cars as there were 6 of us and the drivers were lovely and spoke good English. Apartment was clean and spacious with all amenities. Only one shower but the teenagers with us were basically nocturnal so it worked well and there are showers on the beaches and at the pools both at Granja and Espinho. The two very close mini markets were well stocked and the shopkeepers were so friendly even though we spoke very few Portuguese words. The local beach is a short walk across the railway line. The best part was the 15km wooden walkway extending along the beaches. The dunes are a conservation area so no dogs just varied flora. The views are amazing and the beaches and sea were immaculately clean. Lifeguards were frequent as were rubbish bins. We walked to Espinho which is vibrant beach town with a beachfront open air swimming pool and lots of beach cafes/bars. We also walked to the beautiful chapel on the beach at Miramar. The teenagers went clubbing in Porto most nights. They negotiated the trains well which are clean and managed to get their own personal cabby at discounted rates. Porto is beautiful and cosmopolitan and safe. The Portuguese were without exception extremely friendly and helpful especially the kind optician who mended my glasses for free in Espinho. Thanks Rachel will definitely return. Look out for the random clowns who pop up in the most unexpected places. Only heard two other English speakers the whole week.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to write a review, Heather. We are delighted you all had a great holiday. We agree with you about the Portuguese - they are charming and do a lot to assist. It's great that your teenagers were able to enjoy the nightlife in Porto too and use the trains back in the small hours. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future.
“Great location For Porto and beach”
A lovely holiday apartment, 3 bedroom, with kitchen and lounge, 2nd floor, within 100m of local train station, and 200m from beach. Plenty of eateries nearby, fantastic coastline, with boardwalks north and South. 20 minute train to Porto, or 40m to the lovely Aveiro. Well recommended, a hidden gem!
Owner's reply: Thanks for your review- it is always good to hear that our guests have really enjoyed staying in our apartment and enjoyed experiencing the real Portugal. We look forward to welcoming you again, with discount for returning guests. Thanks again.
“An ideal place for surf lovers, and Porto Lovers!”
This spacious appartmnent is well equiped and ideally situated both for beach and surf lovers and for travelling around and visiting places of interest like Porto ( easy to reach by train, the station is about 5 minutes walk from the appartment), the Doro valley, Coimbra.. The owner Rachel is very frinedly and helpful, providing any information you might need and doing her best to make your stay the best ever. She wa also very helpful at organiszing our arrival in Granja.
Owner's reply: Thank you for writing a review, Marie, and we are very happy you enjoyed your stay. This region of Portugal has a lot to offer for all ages. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Merci beaucoup!!!!
“Perfectly placed accommodation”
The flat is spacious and comfortable and well located near the beach and shopping areas. Some good value restaurantes also nearby. What we really enjoyed was walking from one beach to another. The nearby train station was also very handy
Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are delighted that you had a great holiday. We hope to welcome you again at Granja Beach!
“Excellent place to explore the local beaches”
We had a fabulous 17 days staying at this apartment. Very close to the beach with fantastic transport links too! We walked (and ran) for miles along the boardwalk which is just a stone's throw from the apartment exploring all the locals beaches and fantastic snack bars and restaurants. The local people are very relaxed and friendly and helpful. The apartment is spacious and even when my sister joined us for a week it was more than adequate for the 5 of us. Rachel has been amazing and so incredibly helpful from day 1. We are sure to return in years to come.
Owner's reply: Delighted you had such a great holiday and you enjoyed the beaches, board walk, food, Portuguese people etc. like we do. We look forward to welcoming you back again soon. Thanks for choosing Granja Beach!
“Granja, a very beautiful town in Portugal.”
Went to Granja in Portugal in June with my husband and three kids. Stayed in a lovely spacious apartment in Granja which was just a short walk from the beach, and five minutes from the train station. On the beach was this amazing board walk that went on for miles and linked up the beaches and little towns. There were several little restaurants nearby that severed lovely food at great prices. The local people were very friendly and very helpful. It was a lovely experience and would like to return again some time.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for taking the time to review our beach apartment. We're delighted you had a lovely holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back to Granja again soon.
“Fantastic apartment and vacation, highly recommend!”
We stayed there in May and loved it. The apartment has 3 large double bedrooms plus two bathrooms. The beds are really comfy! Having two TVs is big plus too. For the size of the apartment and the proximity to the beach, this apartment offers excellent value. The nearby restaurants sell fresh fish that is simply delicious – you have to experiment. There is a wonderful cafe/ restaurant just across the road. The beaches are delightful, some with a real ‘fisherman’ feel. We drove down to Coimbra which is a very old, historic university town that has one of the oldest universities in Europe. The whole area around Granja is how I’d describe the real Portugal. The owners were really helpful and gave us lots of accurate information prior to our visit. We live in Las Vegas but if we visit Portugal again, we would definitely stay there. Thanks for a great vacation.
Owner's reply: Delighted you enjoyed your stay in Portugal as part of your trip to Europe. Thank you for taking the time to write a review our apartment.
“Great place, lots of space and great beaches”
Apartment is massive with the creature comforts of home. There was plenty of room for everyone and included a washing machine, hairdrier, hair straighteners, PS2, televisions, iron, heaters, fans and a huge box of toys for the kids. We loved the beautiful beaches that had very few people on them. The coast is great for surfers and when the tide goes out for rock pooling. Granja is not a major tourist venue for the Brits and that is reflected in the cost of food and drinks, our most expensive meal for 5 including drinks was €45, but was normally about €30. With this in mind there is very little in English but the people locally help as much as they can, so borrow the phrase book from the apartment. Nearby there are a few restaurants, coffee shop (yum), small supermarket and hairdressers, but the train station is very close and it's easy to hope on to Espiniho which is more tourist based and has a greater number of the above. My only negative on this holiday was the noise from the train station during the night as they run throughout, but it didn't disturb the kids or anyone else. We loved the local pick up from the airport with the drivers arranged through the owner, they are very punctual and polite and speak a bit of English. They had car seats for both of my little ones and helped with the bags into the apartment, they also bought us water and milk for our arrival which we hadn't asked for. We enjoyed our stay throughout. Thanks for a great relaxing holiday. I'm sure if we felt inclined there is a lot more do nearby but we just wanted to relax and that's just what we did.
Owner's reply: Thanks for taking the time to review our property, Carolyn. We are so pleased that you had such a great time. Remember that we offer discount for returning guests. Thanks again.
“Great location, spacious, clean and well equipped.”
The appartment is really spacious, we are a family of 6 and we had plenty of room. As we were there for over two weeks, the owner arranged for clean sheets and towels half way through the stay. There were two televisions and wi-fi which was super for teenagers during the Olympics. The kitchen is well equipped. Prior to the visit the owner was extremely helpful and was willing to explain everything. The location of this property is fantastic, you can see the sea from the balcony and it is two minutes away from the nearest station. We didn't need a car at all as the trains were cheap and reliable. A trip to Porto cost under 2euros and took less than 30 minutes.There are plenty of beaches to choose from and the walk along the boardwalk to Espinho or Miramar was a daily treat. Along with the bakery opposite which serves fantastic, cheap pastries from 6.00am to 01.00am. Teenagers were able to surf in Espinho and eat ice-cream without breaking the bank. You are able to eat out for very little and the wine is cheap and palatable. I would recommend the appartment and area for families with children of all ages.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your really positive comments. We are delighted you had such a great holiday and found the apartment exactly as described. Remember we offer discount for returning guests. Many thanks for choosing Granja Beach.
