Just got back after one week here. Owner is really nice, friendly and easy. We could check out when we wanted and leave the keys in mailbox etc.
There is a baker 10 meters from house, a shop 3 minutes (walking) so its a good location. With a rental car its less than 10 mins into town where parking is free.
The pool is a decent size and was used a lot.
The house is located a few kilometres from Ponte de Lima. It is a beautiful stone cottage with all the modern conveniences. In addition to the outdoor swimming pool, there is a covered dinning area set in an orchard of various fruit trees. A short walk takes you to the site of an old ruined mill with several waterfalls which lead down to a trail beside the Rio Lima. The house is very well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay .A laundry machine was a welcome sight after a week of working on a Habitat for Humanity build. Having dinner in the formal dinning room with a fire burning in its fireplace was especially welcome. The lounge chairs and cushions were new and perfect for a day spent reading around the pool. The owner Paula was very accommodating and we plan to return soon. You will love staying at Argos de Valdevez.
