Fabulous house in beautiful location, well equipped and clean.
Highly recommend for relaxing getaway from it all holiday.
Kids enjoyed exploring the mountains swimming in the reservoir and many small natural pools - recommended restaurants were excellent as were the many places to visit by car.
Charmosa casa muito bem mobilada

Comemos em bons restaurantes recomendados pela Sara & Carlos
vamos voltar no futuro e recomendar a todos os nossos amigos - obrigado
Fabulous peaceful location lovely house, great walks stress free.
Easy process from contacting the owner, the property was as described even better, the views are spectacular, access via the roads are good, we loved the many scenic routes both by car and mainly on foot. Too cold on this occasion to swim in the reservoir but it did look tempting. The locals are charming and made us feel welcome, nearby in Cabril we got our groceries, used the internet cafe together with a delicious baked pastry with our caffe latte. Every morning the bread van stopped outside our door.
If your looking for a calm stress free holiday with a bit of exercise this property ticks all the boxes.
We will return later in the Summer to swim in the many natural pools and at the reservoir. Thanks Jean & Steve x
Beautiful mountain view, comfortable house
The house is newly built, everything is fresh and very clean. While there was no garden space yet, the terrace and balcony were lovely to sit out on, very private and the views lovely. There is a small shop in Cabril and a couple of bars and Wi-fi. The small bakery/cafe is especially recommended, good cakes! There is a nice place to swim in the river in Cabril. Just be aware that although it's only about a mile from the house, the hill is very steep coming back! Lots of beautiful walks close by. We visited Braga which was a nice town, lots of shops and restaurants, and supermarkets. It's about an hour away.
I am so pleased that you did enjoy it. :)
Fantastisch huis in afgelegen gebied
Prachtig groot huis van alle gemakken voorzien. Wel afgelegen, maar daar houden wij van. Denk wel aan langere tijd rijden voor supermarkt. Fantastisch uitzicht. Communicatie (telefonisch) met eigenaren liep uitstekend!
Very quiet place, comfortable for 2-3 couples.a long way to get there.
The house is very nice and got everything. Very quiet location and nice view from the porch.however hard drive to the village to get to restaurant or very small supermarket.was sometimes too hot- beginning of september- and not even fans to make it easier.but the owners are very willing to help and will conceder to put fans .
Unfortunately it was too hot to walk in the trails so we drove to the river for a swimm or saw things around.when its cooler surely walking in the nature is great.
Thanks Liora I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am surprised its a hard drive to get to the Village of Cabril its a 10 minute downhill walk, the roads are good its just a little steep, which is normal for mountainous roads, fans are already purchased.
A Walkers Paradise - The Peneda Geres National Park is fabulous for hiking or just leisurely walking, the scenery is breathtaking. Nearby in the City Braga you have the Religous Capital of Portugal with the Bom Jesus Cathedral and steps, The city of OPorto is fabulous for the Douro River tours and Port tastings, Guimaraes and Montalegre for Fortresses. The North is full of culture and beautiful buildings scenery - great cuisine and plenty more....
