Charming Vila Chã
Rui was always available and helpful with any queries. We were a little delayed and there was a bottle of wine and gorgeous snacks waiting for us. The location is perfect and the accommodation spotless and convenient with the added bonus of the veranda overlooking the sea and the boats. A great base for your holiday.
If I could I would buy it..!!
The photo’s of this property and the surrounding area do not do it justice at all.. it is 100% better than advertised.
From the airport just a short 15 mins drive takes you to the warren of streets that is Vila Cha. Without a sat nav though it would be awkward to find first time Saying that, the layout of the village adds to the immediate excellent first impressions.
Rui and his wife Christina were waiting at our agreed meet up time and after a long days travelling to get there it was reassuring to have a friendly welcome.
We parked the car in its own undercover, secure space and were shown round the property. All the amenities and facilities were very easy to use and was, if anything, over adequately stocked with everything you needed - bedding, linen, towels, kitchen appliances and utensils; in fact probably had more things than our house at home!
The plate of fantastic tapas and gorgeous bottle of wine were a welcome bonus to our arrival.
The surrounding area of Vila Cha was quiet but busy enough to be able to people watch and get everything you needed from the local shops and cafe/bars that were dotted around the town. The position of the property right on the sea front of the village enabled you to watch the local fishermen (& women) go about their business. I love to see different lifestyles at work. The large balcony makes this the ideal spot to just watch the day go by.
Perfect area for great walks along the coast with amazing bits of history all along the coastal area (who knew a Lancaster bomber crashed there and the locals helped the crew survive? Lovely monument there.)
The beach is lovely but not really a sea for swimming as fairly rocky coast but that doesn’t spoil anything.
Further afield, there is obviously Porto and Vila do Conde and they are so easy to get to. A 5 mins drive away is the fantastic Vila do Conde Porto Fashion Outlet where you can park your car for free and catch the tram. Porto is about 35mins away by tram and at €2 each way it’s far better than driving; and after seeing the traffic in Porto it was definitely the right option.
Overall this was the perfect place far whatever type of break you need.. easy to relax or easy to get out to other areas.
Summing up (after writing all this)
Easy to get to although car required
Plenty to do locally
Plenty to do further afield
And, yes, if I could I would buy it....
Thank you Rui & Christina
Ideally situated for what we wanted. Great walks, amazing food and friendly people.
The house was spotlessly clean and well equipped with supplies. Rui was available when we arrived and answered any questions we had. On arrival there was a beautiful bottle of wine and plate of Tapas for us. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone and would definitely stay here again. The upstairs terrace was wonderful to enjoy breakfast in the sun and watch the fisherman and Pilgrims (hikers) daily. A bonus was parking available on the premises.
nice house, great
Très bon séjour.
Très bon accueil, très propre, bonne situation géographique au proximité du port, de la plage et du métro. A conseiller.
Muito obrigado pela preferência...
Maison typique de pêcheur bien restaurée. Avec vue superbe sur la plage et bâteaux
Accueil très chaleureux de Rui. Merci pour les fruits frais et le vin de Porto...La maison est très agréable et propre. Endroit vraiment typique du petit village de pêcheur où tout le monde se côtoie. Nous y retournerons avec plaisir.
