Peaceful, comfortable house with wonderful garden. Great location for touring.
We stayed in the Rustic House for two weeks in July. Graciela and her family made us extremely welcome to their lovely house after meeting us at the airport and guiding us there in our hired car.
The house is in the quiet and peaceful countryside setting of Aldreu, but with local shops, filling station, tapas bar/cafe etc very near by.
We had breakfast every day in the beautiful garden that is like an orchard in an old monastery. We could sunbathe or sit in the shade at the garden table. The kitchen had everything we needed.
There are many nice places to go in the area but you could quite happily spend a whole leisurely day in the garden and on the balcony.
Aldreu is a great base for touring Northern Portugal; there is always something interesting happening in Braga; Viana do Castelo is a beautiful town (and we would highly recommend the Restaurante O Pescador), there are also great beaches just outside the town; Geres Natural Park is spectacular; and of course Porto is near by. We were also lucky enough to catch the Aldreu festival of Saint Iago. Nearby is Esposende with great beaches.
Back in the Rustic house in the evenings we could relax in front of the TV (with lots of English and US channels), and then sleep peacefully in our cool and comfortable room.
It was a pleasure to see you,! Your comment was really motivating. Thank you very much!
