¡estancia maravillosa!

  • 5 of 5

Hemos estado encantados toda la familia! la casa es preciosa, muy bien equipada y muy cómoda de habitar. El jardín impresionante con árboles frutales y excelentemente cuidado. Como toda la propiedad. La finca está en un entorno muy tranquilo y agradable. Muy cerca de playas y ciudades muy bonitas de visitar.

Los dueños muy atentos para que todo esté a punto.

¡ Nos ha dado pena que se acabe!. Para repetir desde luego

Muchas gracias.

super Urlaub

Ich habe mit 5 Freunden 2 wunderschöne Wochen in Portugal verbracht. Wir waren mit dem Ferienhaus rundum zufrieden. Der Service und das Vertrauen des Vermieters haben uns ebenfalls überzeugt.

Tolles Haus mit wunderschönem Garten!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zwei Wochen mit drei Familien vor Ort und haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen, viele Ausflüge in der Umgebung gemacht (Porto, Braga, Guimaraes, Barcelos ...), gemeinsam gekocht und draußen gegrillt. Das Haus ist großzügig und gut ausgestattet, der Garten wunderschön und die Gastgeber äußerst hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend.

Paradise in Northern Portugal

  • 5 of 5

What a great villa!!!!! This villa has all you can dream of: several bedrooms and bathrooms and a divine swimming pool surrounded by English-like-green-lawns. The house is spacious and comfortable and is decorated with taste. The garden is surrounded by a stone wall, covered with (fruit) plants and beautiful flowers, which give you lots of privacy.

Northern Portugal is a must see: an amazing green scenery, very sunny and warm but nog as hot as the Algarve. From the villa you are within less than an hour in the beautiful city of Porto, or the medieval towns of Guimaraes and Braga. Also worth a visit is the northeast with its beautiful nature and rural scenery. Not to forget of course, the Atlantic coast with its great beaches is only a 15 minutes drive.

We would like to thank the owners for our nice holiday!

Best regards from Michiel & Suzanne and kids from Amsterdam, the Netherlands

géniale !

  • 5 of 5

Grâce à votre très belle maison, nous avons pu réunir nos enfants et petits-enfants (11 personnes) d'une façon merveilleuse pendant 2 semaines.

La maison est très confortable,très propre, il ne manque rien. Le ménage et le changement du linge a été fait au milieu du séjour.

La belle piscine éclairée et le coin barbecue à côté ont permis de bons petit -déjeuners et des dîners jusque tard dans la nuit !

les propriétaires sont très gentils et joignables sans problème.

Ils nous avaient installé Internet pour notre arrivée.

Le village est sympa. Il y a plusieurs épiceries, une poissonnerie, un petit centre commercial juste de l'autre côté de la N 103 avec un très bon boucher.

Les plages sont belles mais ventées. On peut aussi se baigner dans la rivière pas loin.

Le Minho est une belle région et ses habitants vraiment gentils !

Nous y reviendrons certainement !
