Amazing house for family or friends
I booked Quinta D’Oleiro for a family get together with our eldest daughter, her husband and baby, and our other daughter and son., so we used all four bedrooms in the house, but it would have been OK if there had been two other partners as the rooms all had double beds. The beds were all extremely comfortable.
The photos in the website do not do justice to the property. The pool is big, having a deep end of 2.8 m and beautifully cared for. The steps you see from the house to the pool are massive, like coming down from a Piano Nobile in an old Roman city.
When you rent this place, you get the house with its four bedrooms, a huge sitting room complete with decorative marble floors and a boudoir grand piano, bath/shower for each room, a kitchen with all the gadgets. Isabel is an interior designer and the house is flamboyantly wonderful. Down the steps and across the pool, there is the old house, which now is L shaped, and has a second kitchen with everything there again, there is a covered BBQ area with gas or charcoal choice, and a wood oven for pizzas etc, two sitting areas and two other dining areas, depending on time, temperature and your whim. There are more glasses and plates than you can imagine, two dishwashers, , a washing room, you name it.
The really fabulous part that is not mentioned is that you also have Isabel, who owns the house with Manuel. She lives at the bottom of the long orchard/vegetable garden and looks after everything. Normally this may put you off, and we might worry too about privacy. Don’t worry Isabel is the warmest and most brilliant host you could ever have. She rushes around morning and evening making sure the place is in great shape, moving furniture, inflatables, putting in the pool cleaning machine and covering up at night, she gave us huge welcome pack of fruit and other goodies on arrival, a huge basket of the most glorious oranges from their trees which juiced perfectly in the electric juicer (of course!) she encouraged us to help ourselves to beans lettuce courgettes and other veg (you rarely get decent veg and greens in the restaurants)
We eventually got to communicating via google translate on iPads but had managed pretty well with waving arms and using simple words! She made us cakes and loved seeing our baby granddaughter. Nothing was too much trouble, but she was never hovering around, and we never felt crowded.
Best house/pool we have ever rented.
Thank you so much Chris and Victoria for your opinion I was speechless I do not know what to answer !! I just say that it was a family that loved to receive Parents, children, son-in-law and the beautiful little girl, a baby love. I am very happy when I receive these families. Very friendly, educated people treated the whole space with all the care. They left the house all well cared for and as it says are many spaces. I hope you come back one day !! a big hug to the whole family, a kiss to '
Great Spacious Villa. Great location just outside Porto
The place and the host are wonderful.
Isabel welcomed us and had a great surprise for us to help us spend New Years. Porto Wine, Sparkling, and many many other things including a traditional cake she baked for us for new years.
We had a great time. Very comfortable beds. Enjoyed the grounds around pool, had fresh orange juice from the grove!
We will be back!!!!!
Thank you Isabel and Manuel
A very special place!!!
From the moment the impressive electric gates opened revealing this beautiful villa we knew we was in for a wonderful time. This home is simply stunning and humongous. The pictures (although beautiful) don't capture the size or the charm of this place. It is kept to a very high standard, with everything you could possibly need. Every room (and there are a lot of rooms) is unique and full of character; photos, artwork, books etc. However the outdoor area is what excited us the most. The pool is huge and there is more than enough seating areas around the outdoors for lots of people to enjoy their own space. The pool house is fantastic and the 5 teenagers with us spent a lot of time hanging out here. The gardens are beautiful and well kept. Myself along with my sister, father, 5 teenagers and 2 young boys (our children) spent a week here. It is by far the best villa I have ever stayed in. But what made this holiday that extra special was the beautiful Isabel, the owner along with her lovely husband Manuel. Isabel is wonderful, caring and attentive. She went above and beyond to make us all feel welcome and to help us enjoy our time at her home. We was greeted with a huge welcome basket with the most delicious home baked cakes, wines, cheeses, meats and lovely fresh fruit and vegetables fresh of their farm. One evening we was having a little garden party in the bbq area and Isabel brought us a big tray of appetisers to enjoy. Then another day made us thee most delicious dessert. We was asked daily if everything was ok and if we needed anything. Manuel kindly gave some of our group a lift to the airport to save me doing 2 trips. We was sad to leave the beautiful villa and even more sad to leave Isabel. We will most definitely be returning and I have already recommended this place to several of my friends and family and highly recommend to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay in Maia.
De villa is perfect gelegen op 25 min afstand van de luchthaven en Porto; het heeft vele vertrekken , een buitenverblijf , BBQ ruimte en buitenzit en een fitness ruimte en een groot zwembad. kortom ideaal voor 1 of 2 gezinnen of groepen. Het ontvangst was erg welkom; een mand met port en wijn en kazen .
Nous avons passé une agréable semaine dans cette villa.
Isabel, la propriétaire est un ange toujours aux petits soins avec nous.
Une grande corbeille de produits Portugais nous attendait à notre arrivée (sangria, gâteaux maison, vin, miel fromages confitures etc ....)
nous avions à notre disposition 4 belles chambres avec salle de bain séparée.
2 salons extérieurs, une salle avec billard et nous devons en oublier
Nous avons réussi à prendre le petit déjeuner au bord de la piscine.
tout est décoré avec soin. Fleurs à profusion partout.
c'est un petit coin de paradis où vous êtes reçus par une personne au grand cœur.
Merci beaucoup Odile et tes amis pour ta belle opinion !! Ce sont des gens comme ton groupe qui me donnent le goût de recevoir très attentivement qu'ils traitent l'espace avec toute l'affection. très sympa, j'ai adoré le telos chez nous, un gros câlin et revenir un jour ... bisous à tous,
PUENTE EN OPORTO INOLVIDABLE
Hemos estado en el puente de mayo 8 amigos con dos perritos.La sorpresa fue mayuscula! Primero el recibimiento, como si llegaramos a nuestra propia casa. Nos obsequiaron con una gran cesta llena de detalles! Es todo un espectáculo !La casa es preciosa - Lo de "villa de lujo" se queda corto. Realmente es para no salir de ella, Hay de todo y mucho más- Lugar tranquilo,cómodo, relajante y acogedor. Gracias Isabel. Eres una gran anfitriona. VOLVEREMOS
Muito obrigada Paula e Amigos pela vossa opinião. Apenas queremos que os nossos hóspedes se sintam bem e tentamos melhorar cada dia mais, e são as vossas opiniões e sugestões que nos dão alento para que isso seja possível. Espero que voltem um dia, abraço
