Enjoyed a lovely 5 night stay at Casa do Alto during our travels through Portugal. We stayed with our two kids, who loved being able to walk the cobblestone paths and roam the orchard. We had stayed in downtown Braga also but we were ready for the peace and quiet of the countryside. This rental is still very close to the city and all it’s amenities, but offers beautiful scenery and places to walk or hike right from the house, including a 2,000 Roman road. The apartment was just lovely, as well as the hosts. Very accommodating, and offered us some great suggestions for things to do the area. Highly recommend this place.
We had great pleasure in renting the original of the three “cube apartments” located directly on the river and waterfall, the views are truly breathtaking and made for a really relaxing atmosphere set in a very quiet and und un-spoilt rural environment. This apartment was immaculate, now having a new kitchen extension offering everything you need for a short break or a longer stay as we made. The location is ideally situated for daily outings to all the nearby major cities, towns and national parks. The family Alvaro who rent these charming properties really makes a big effort to ensure visitors are welcome, beginning with meeting and collection to show us the apartment, providing a selection of local delicacies for our first evening through to assistance helping us in Portugal to get the most out of our stay. In total a really great experience which we are definitely happy to recommend further.
