We've just returned from a 2 week break in this lovely, well maintained, villa.
Maria was a welcoming hostess and greeted us with Port and a tasty chocolate cake. Halfway through our break she and her husband came to check on the pool and garden and they were easily contactable had we had any questions.
The kitchen and pantry were well stocked and we cooked almost every day. The BBQ outside was perfect for warm evenings when we'd got back from our adventures.
The bathrooms were clean and the beds comfortable.
The local town is within a 5 minute walk and had several mini supermarkets, a greengrocers, coffee shops, a butchers, fishmongers and pastry shop. It was only a few days into our holiday that we realised just how many of the cafes opened up in the late evening.
We only found a couple of local restaurants that were open in the evening - Romandos, which we didn't go to and O Cantinho do Churrasco which is secreted up a little side street and well worth a visit - or 2 ;-)
As others have said the Metro is about a 10 minute walk away. We caught the Metro into Porto twice at a cost of around 5 euros return. Just ensure you take note of the station for coming home - we managed to get off at the wrong stop twice the first time we went :-D
The beach is a 10 minute walk and you can walk on the walkway into Vila Do Conde (about 15 mins) or, in the other direction to Mindelo Beach and beyond.
We hired a car whilst we were there and found the area a perfect base for visiting some of the 'top 10' places mentioned on the 'Go Portugal' website - most within 30 - 60 minutes away by car.
All in all a memorable trip.
Thank you Maria :-)
Thanks so much for your very nice review. It will be very useful for futures guests.
ideal for large family gathering
we were a family of 7 adults and 1 baby staying together to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary. The bedrooms were all comfortable and the bathrooms clean and functional. The living space, garden, pool and kitchen were all excellent. Just a note: if you have a toddler this house is not for you as the pool is un-fenced and easy to access from the patio.
I would recommend this house for a beach stay with travel to interesting castles and towns. The metro is a long journey into Porto.
Wonderful family home
Stayed here for a week in late May '18 with my family. Lots of space for us all, including my grown-up kids. Big enough not to get under each others feet. Fully kitted out kitchen and BBQ for nights in. Pool perfect size for kids splashing around. Quiet and clean residential neighbourhood. 10-15 minute walk to Metro stop & beach. Local village 5 minute walk, only the basics here. Vila do Conde is a few stops north on the Metro and is a lot bigger. Very nice beach front & restaurants. But the star attraction is of course downtown Porto, around 40 minutes by Metro which runs from 6AM-2AM. What a vibrant city! Plenty to see, activities, eat & drink.
Maria was a friendly, attentive host and I would recommend the house to all. Yes it's a fair way from downtown Porto but trust me you'll be thankful of the peace, quiet and relaxation the house offers.
Thank you so much for your very nice review.
It was a pleasure to welcome all your family.
Lovely house with beautiful pool
This is an excellently maintained traditional house in a very peaceful area. Maria and her husband greeted us warmly and provided us with a bottle of port wine and a lovely chocolate sponge cake.
We enjoyed the large patio area, with trailing Bougainvillea, which looks out on the garden and pool, while enjoying a barbecue.
The location is great for driving visits to nearby Guimaraes, etc which offer some beautiful days out. The beach is also nearby. There are also places to eat or drink within walking distance and a nearby metro that can be reached on foot as well.
We had a lovely relaxing time and would not hesitate to stay again, as there are many places that we didn't get time to visit.
Thanks so much for your nice review!
We are very happy for you have chosen our house for your holiday, you are beautiful guests !
We hope you come back soon!
Delightful house in a very quiet suburb
This is a charming, clean and spacious house in a very quiet suburb of Vila do Conde. It's ideally located for touring around northern Portugal with easy access to the motorway. It is situated just a 15 minute drive from Porto airport. Very happy to recommend.
I am very happy with your review , thank you !
I hope to see you again when you come back for a holiday in Portugal, this time with your wife.
We spent a great holiday with 2 families in this attractive villa. The house is very comfortable with plenty space for (small) children. It is very well kept and with a nice homly appearance.There ist everything you need for daily living and cooking (incl. bbq). A fireplace in the house for cold evenings is prepared. We loved the short distances to the beaches and other places around, especially to Porto.
I very glad you have enjoyed a good holiday in our house!
We had very pleased to welcome you and we hope to see you again in our property.
