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 ...

“Amazing appartment and wonderful landlords!”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2014

We had a amazing stay in Teresa and Pedro's appartment. We could not have asked for more. The appartment was newly renovated by Pedro himself and is nicely furnished. The backyard is big and very beautiful with flowers, grapes shade and sunny spots and allows you to rest and relax after a day in the sun or after having discovered Porto. Teresa and Pedro live next door and help you with everthing you need. They are amazingly friendly! They tell you about good restaurants, nice day trips, and once in a while they even provide you with eggs of their own chicken. For those who have little kids or do not want to stay in the center of Porto and rather prefer a quiet and less touristy surrounding, this is the perfect place! The village is really cute and just next to the Douro river! Porto is not far away and easily accessible by (rental)car. A supermarket is also close by! We warmly recommend this place and would love to come back soon! A big thank you to Pedro and Teresa!

“Un secret bien gardé ...jusqu'à maintenant!”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

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 ! La famille du Québec (Marco, Isabelle, Léandre et Elliot)

“Restful and reenergising eden with Douro at your step”

Reviewed 19 Jul 2014

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”

Reviewed 12 Jul 2014

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.
