Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
It really is worth renting it. Maybe the location is a little confusing to find, especially when you reach it in the dark. But if you found it: Very very special. A big area in a very calm place, good with children and even dogs, you have everything you need, especially fresh rolls every morning. Very helpful and friendly owners. We only can highly recommend it.
A wonderful villa for ages
The villa can be hard to find but when you do, wow. The gardens are well looked after with lemon apple and pear trees, there gapes hanging all round the edge of the garden. The pool is a good size and in the sun most of the day. The villa has all the amenities you need and if you have children the basement is perfect with table football and pool table. There is also a small cinema with about 10 up to date films. The nearest restaurant is about a 20 minute walk there a few local bars that take about 10 to fifteen minutes to walk to. Where the villa is situated is in a quiet location and the view to the hills are nice. Alexandra and her partner are really helpful and only a phone call away. We had fresh bread rolls delivered every day free of charge. Overall I can not fault the villa or the owners would love to come back again one day
Family vacation with friends
Just lovely! Beautiful yard and a little garden. Excpecially for Scandinavians lemon tree on your own garden is just perfection. Good beds. Fresh buns every morning. Kitchen is well equipped. It's worth to visit on nearest wineyard: only 500m by road to up hill. Excellent green wine for 2€/bottle. Only negative thing was that bedroom of the basement was quite stuffy and humid
not a winter destination!
15minutes from Parades,NO,in the middle of nowhere!!!Electric kept tripping,no hot water for two days,television has very poor reception.The whole place needs updating!We hated every minute of our holiday from hell!Oven in the small kitchen rattles terribly when used,the garage come kitchen oven, burns everything,thermostat needs fixing.Freezing cold no heating in the kitchen! The hot water,when we had it,had to be rationed,two showers,then wait for two hours to get anymore!Two bathrooms,only heating in one.Needs to be rethought before letting out again in winter.Nice enough people,tried to be helpful,but should not have happened.Should really be compensated!!!!!!!
Todas as criticas são bem vinda no sentido de melhorar a boa estadia dos turistas quando munidas da verdade, o que não é de todo neste caso.
Assim, respondendo a cada ponto:
1º Localização da casa: Está bem identificada no mapa e a 15 minutos do centro do porto pela auto estrada (basta testar no Google maps)
2º Falha de Luz: falhou na verdade, mas foi geral na cidade de Paredes durante 2 horas e nunca na casa.
3º O lugar todo precisa ser actualizado: A casa está completamente remodelada com todo o equipamento para dar bom conforto (Ar condicionado, Internet, 3 Tvs, sala de cinema, sala de jogos, 2 cozinhas, piscina, jardim, alarme etc..) aceito sugestão!
4º Forno no pequena cozinha chocalhos terrivelmente quando usado: Devem saber utilizar os equipamentos! A grelha interior estava colocada na diagonal!
5º garagem vem forno de cozinha, queima tudo: A cozinha é nova e o forno é novo da marca Teka (mais uma vez, não souberam utilizar os equipamentos!)
6º Congelante frio sem aquecimento na cozinha: estando a referir-se à cozinha exterior à casa, trata-se de uma cozinha para uso essencialmente de verão, nunca seria munida de aquecimento!...
7º A água quente: A casa tem 2 sistemas de aquecimento de agua em serie ( cilindro 180 L e um esquentador) é verdade que falhou o esquentador, tentamos resolver, mas numa altura de Natal e passagem de ano foi impossível (as nossas sinceras desculpas), contudo, o cilindro esteve sempre a funcional limitado à sua capacidade de 180 litros.
Permitam-me também expor o desagrado, pelo mau estado que deixaram a casa, limpeza (nomeadamente expectoração nos lençóis.
Deixamos um bolo típico de natal como boas vindas e o agradecimento foi deixa-lo no lixo por abrir!
Não souberam utilizar o aquecimento: forçaram o ar condicionado no frio e quente em simultâneo!..
The property exceeded our expectations.
We had the most wonderful, relaxing holiday at this accommodation. Absolutely loved it! The house and gardens were amazing and the pool was lovely and larger than we expected. We had the added bonus of being able to contact the lovely and friendly owner if we had any questions. and we had fresh rolls delivered to the house every morning and our bedding changed after the first week. It's located in a beautiful, secluded area and you are never far away from a beach, supermarket or places to visit. The only thing I would say is that it can be a little tricky to get into the gate initially, as the house is situated at the bottom of a steep hill. However, once you get used to it it is fine.
We will definitely consider returning to this accommodation again in the future.
Obrigado pelo comentário, família muito simpática, atenciosa, educada.
Gostaríamos de um dia voltar a receber se voltarem a visitar o nosso país .
Um muito obrigado e até breve..
Very nice place to stay for a family or more
Located close enough to Porto, and good location for daytrips to the Douro Valley wine region, Guimaraes etc. The house itself is as nice as it looks in the pictures, and we also had good time staying at the house with our kids. The hostess was also very helpful, we had a couple of incidents on our trip and she helped us with them.
Obrigado pela estadia na nossa casa, com o cuidado com que a utilizaram.
hospedes simpáticos agradáveis e de bom trato.
Na expectativa de um dia voltarem..
Located in quiet place with easy access from the exit of the A4 motorway, rural ideal for rest in family. However the distance of 15 minutes to Porto or the beach, or other cities like Guimaraes, Vila Real, Aveiro, it is easy and fast because of the strategic location and ease of access.
