Wonderful place to stay near Porto
We selected this Home based on its location near Porto and major highways and size. It was a great place for our family of seven adults and one grandchild. Our host Miguel ckuldn’t Have been nicer. He spent time getting us established and directed us to key grocery shopping and restaurants. He was very helpful with directions and emailed me throughout our stay offering to help in any way and making sure we were okay in his home. If we ever come back to this area we would definitely use this home again. Thank you Miguel!
Thank you for your comment Bárbara! You and your family are very nice people. I hope to see you again at our house. Thank you! Best wishes for all of you!
Not so much Spectacular, Luxury ....
Our family of 5 with dog stayed here at the beginning of April 2018 for 10 days. The house was tired and in need of redecoration. It was suffering from serious rising damp issues and broken windows and a roof that leaked for the first two days of our holiday and continued to leak in the master dressing room for the duration of our stay. The house is not suitable for stays out of summer season. It is too cold - the air conditioning works as heating but is not enough to heat the whole house. There is a log fire in the living room but it has not been maintained properly so the smoke from the fire leaks into the house and there was a big build up of redundant ash which had not been cleared up making it very difficult for the fire to be lit every day. The garden needs attention as the safety fence shown in the pictures is not present in places which meant our dog could not roam freely. The house generally is well equipped and Miguel our host was very pleasant and showed considerable concern for our predicament but the house should have been better prepared.
I would first of all thank you for the stay in our house. Responding to reported situations ...
1. As for the "tired house in need of redecoration", the decorating tastes are very personal. The house is decorated exactly as it appears in the photos of the site.
2. It is true that the house had problems of humidity during the first 2 days. Unfortunately a storm in northern Portugal caused damage to the roof ... everything was solved as soon as the rain stopped! I do not want anyone to go through a similar situation ...
3. As for the fireplace, an explanation was given of how a fireplace was lit! The fireplace worked very well and perfectly warmed the whole area the leaving and dinner room. But you need to know how to light a fireplace ...
4. The fence, also damaged by the storm. Only exists to delimit the pool area from the rest of the terrain. We were never informed that the fence served security for the dogs!
One last question ... From the first minute onwards, discontent with the house was shown, and concern for very minute details. The same concern should be used for the garbage to be placed in the containers themselves and never be left indoors during the 10 days !!! Just one example...
Beautiful well equipped villa
Fantastic well equipped villa in beautiful countryside.
Easy access to the motorway and short drive to coast or Porto.
Miguel was a very generous and helpful host, always quick to answer any emails and queries and made some excellent recommendations for places to eat.
Thanks a lot for your words! I hope to see you soon in our house!
Brilliant villa and a great host!
We arrived late on the Friday due to delays at the airport but was greeted by Miguel on arrival. Miguel showed us around the villa and told us everything we needed. Also gave us a lovely Porto wine and flowers. The villa itself is superb. So spacious and modern. We had two toddlers in our party and they were well catered for with childs room. Pool was lovely and the overall facilities could not have been any better. A car is definitely needed in my opinion if you want to explore the local towns and city of Porto. We would strongly consider returning in the future. Thanks Miguel and Ana once more!!!
Thanks a lot for your words! I met a very nice and fun family. Thank you very much for your preference for our house. We hope you come back next year !!! THANK YOU!

A Holiday to Remember
We have recently returned from a three week holiday in Miguel's and Ana's house.
This is a lovely house with a beautiful view and the peace and privacy we were looking for. Miguel checked the pool and garden every week and Angela came in on a Saturday to clean the house and change the linen.
Everything was as we would have hoped for and every effort was made to make sure we were comfortable.
A wonderful three weeks in a country we have come to love.
Thank you very much! We realy loved meet you and your kindly family. We hope see you again!
Thanks a lot!
