I could live there!
A lovely, peaceful and warm house.
We spent a very enjoyable 4 weeks at the property. Everything needed is provided. The location is very good for visiting the region. Our favorit was Villa Do Conde, for walking on the promenade. The bedding and towels were freshly laundered every week. We very much hope to return. Obregardo Ines. Obregardo Emelia.
Great property set in fantastic gardens
I would recommend this property to anyone. You will probably need a car for sightseeing, but we used the Uber Taxis and it worked out a lot cheaper than hiring a car. The house has 3 very modern bathrooms and the rest older style, with shutters on all windows. a wonderful duck pond in front, I got to know our feathered friends very well. We visited the restaurant in the square which was very good value. Quite a lot of fish and mainly pork dishes. There is a cafe around the back of the house which is very good and serves you many extras to try, great hospitality and wine. The owner of the property kindly let us stay until early evening for a late flight back and took us into Porto. We hope to return soon.
Thank you so much Linda, it was a pleasure to meet you and we look forward to your next stay.
Most beautiful location where we stayed
The house and surrounding gardens are beautiful,and roomy. Made us want to just stay put and enjoy the quiet. We followed our hostesses' suggestion and went to a nearby restaurant which was excellent. We wish we had arranged for a longer visit. Two days was not enogh.
Off the charts wonderful!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. You provided a magical landscape for us to be enchanted and to be recharged. Thank you!
We arrived to find a basket of fresh veggies, fresh floral bouquets and a spotlessly clean and beautifully appointed home. With ceiling molding, traditional Portuguese windows and granite restored to the original 200 plus year old home plus modern conveniences made for added beauty and comfort. The ducks greeted our comings and goings and we in turn fed them fresh greens (which they loved.) The location on the village square allowed us to walk to local restaurants/cafes, pubs, bakeries and the like. We were a short drive to the ocean (Vila do Conde) and enjoyed many a walk along the coast. A river cruise on the Duoro, a port wine tour across from Oporto were a couple of offerings easily accessible from Macieira da Maia. Always we were delighted to return to our Casa to be rejuvenated--be that to enjoy wine on the porch, conversation in the living room, a walk on the property, snacks/meals or a nap!
Thanks for your review. If your stay was Perfect and Excellent then why not a 5-star grade?
