“Beautiful place”
Reviewed 24 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We stayed at the Azenha for two weeks and it was lovely. The house is cool and nicely designed, the kitchen is basic but has all the necessary utensils, bathroom and bedroom are clean with storage ad bedding.

The house is by a river and has a big garden, there is a gate you can close in case you have kids. We went with our kids, 6 and 9 years old, they loved it; we spent most of the time in the house and the kids played in the river most of the time. The river is shallow and kids could paddle.

The local supermarket is 5 minutes drive and the local beach, Castelo do Neiva is 15 minutes drive; there are good restaurants around there.

Viana do Castelo is a beautiful town with all needed facilities and is 20 minutes drive from the property.

Lovely place for kids to get in touch with nature.

“Excellent Experience”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The property was very easy to find thanks to Ricardo's excellen directions provided beforehand. A granite lane sweeps down to the cottage/ watermill 's entrance courtyard where glimpses of the clean and fully fenced river can be seen. We splashed around every day and the boat trips were amazing and safe for children. The environment is so beautifull and relaxing you really lose time just by poundering in it.There are a lot of sun places and shades for lounging around outside overlooking the river. This peacefull location is ideal for visiting nearby beaches (within 20 minutes drive) as well as towns such as Ponte de Lima and Viana do Castelo. Good parking. The rooms were nicely presented with all you could need. The toilete and shower were perfectily clean and tidy. The kitchen is basic, rustic style but is confortable with a brand new gas stove and fridge. No washing machines. The villagers are friendly and always keen to help. Last but not the least the owner was very hospitable and kind in showing us around upon our arrival and made us feel at home. We had a great stay and hope to return!

A warm welcome on arrival by ricardos family. The mill is set in a wonderful location. Complete peace and quiet. The property is adequately furnished although there was no kettle but a saucepan did the same job!The property is only a very short drive to the vilage where you can get everything you need at reasonable prices and a lovely selection of wines and a chemist. There is also a supermarket and garage about four miles away. Local bars/cafes in abundance everywhere.Easy access to the motorway for major places of interest, Viana, Braga, etc.The people are very welcoming and nearly everyone spoke English which surprised us.We have no real critism of the property ,the bathroom could be updated a little but given the the setting and location with the beautiful river by the garden gate this would not stop our recommendation of a magical place.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Liked best: setting of the mill right on private part of river on completely private land
Liked least: dark kitchen little natural light but to be expected to keep heat out in summer
