Beautiful and very comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay in Matosinhos very much. The house is perfect, just renovated, absolutely comfortable, equipped and spacious. The garden is very wide and nice. Matosinhos is conveniently located some 20kms north of Porto and a very good base for excursions. The beach is close and excellent. At last, the landlord is very friendly and helpfull. I definitively recommend this house.

Casa moderna e bem localizada

  • 5 of 5

A casa é bem moderna e com ótima localização. Estava limpa e em bom estado. Os móveis antigos são muito interessantes. Os quartos superiores são muito confortáveis, mas os inferiores estavam com um pouco de mofo devido algum problema estrutural, mas nada que seja impeditivo para uma estada maravilhosa e tranquila. A cozinha é maravilhosa. A tv e o wifi funcionando perfeitamente. Resumindo, a casa é tudo o que promete e as fotos não demonstram o quanto ela é grande e bonita.

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic house with all the things you need to have a great time. Very comfortable and modern.

We stayed there for a weekend and only good points to mention. If one would like to stay around Porto with some friends or family, I would definitively recommend this house.

Thank you Tiago and Joaquim for having everything fine for us.

Modern and spacious house highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and bright, it is modern,

and has all amenities which you would expect from

a modern house. The photos shown in HomeAway

do not really do justice to the house.

The reality is better than shown in the photos.

Every bedroom has its own bathroom.

The house is very clean and well maintained.

There is a washing machine in the house, so one

can spare some space in the suitcase by reducing


The house has internet connection, so if one needs contact

to home you can phone via VoIP, or e-mail.

We brought our laptops with us.

There are many televisions in the house, so each

person can watch the program he likes.

Many TV channels are not synchronized, so the

original American films can be watched in english

and contain portuguese subtitles.

The host is very friendly and eager to help in any


Around 200m from the house you will find a modern

and clean supermarket called Pingo Doce, which

provides everything, food (fish, fruits, vegetables),

cleaning articles, beach accessories, etc.

There is a bus stop only 50m away from the house.

We did not use the bus but saw a number of people

using the bus, and the busses seem to commute regularly.

Taking the car it will take you 3 minutes to get

to the beach, with the bicycle it's about 10 minutes.

You can also walk to the beach, it takes about

20 minutes, even using flipflops.

There are many beaches nearby.

During our stay it was quite windy, although warm,

but the ocean probably did not get warmer than

20 degrees of Celsius.

So you will find few people bathing in the ocean.

From the airport to the house it takes about

15 minutes with a car.

Although the airport is near to the house you do not

hear the airplanes at the house.

But you do hear the street next to the house.

To Porto you drive around 20 minutes.

From Porto you can use a high speed train (200 km/h)

which brings you to Lisbon in less than 3 hours.

So it is possible to visit Lisbon within one day,

although we stayed in Lisbon for 2 days and stayed

the night in a hotel.

All in all we can highly recommend this house.

Estadia da passagem de ano

  • 4 of 5

Foi uma otima passagem de ano numa casa muito agradavel. A casa tem todas as condiçoes de comodidade, e um espaço exterior muito cuidado e convidativo.

É uma casa que ajuda a proporcionar otimos momentos.

Só é pena nao ter piscina para passar umas ferias em total descanso no Verao.

O sr. Tiago é muito prestavel e sempre disponivel.
