Our Lady of Mercy villa is a private oasis in the center of the small town of Alfena. Located 15 minutes from Porto and the Atlantic beaches, it was perfect for our family of 12 with plenty of space for everyone. The grounds were amazingly landscaped with flowers, fruit tries, lawn etc. The pool was a great gathering place in the hot afternoons. The cute courtyard was a perfect place for dinner, or dinner by the pool was also fun. It had a built in bbq grill that was a great extension for the somewhat small kitchen.
It was very well equipped with towels, beach towels, beach toys and kitchen pots, pans etc. There were activities for everyone: Pool, pool table, ping pong, tennis, soccer, basketball, children's games.
Our first night there we had a wonderful meal prepared by Carla, Hélder's sister in law. It was truly amazing with more food than we could eat. I highly recommend it.
Sebastian and his wife were very attentive to all our needs. They are wonderful, caring people who just wanted us to have a great vacation. What more can you ask for?
