“Fantastic holiday home from home”

This is a beautiful location- the loveliest view over the river from the terrace, a pool, well kept gardens and everything necessary for a welcoming stay (fresh flowers and a bottle of wine in the fridge!). We enjoyed using the outdoor dining area with the amazing bbq and generally lounging around. We drove out for a couple of daytrips up into the Duoro valley and to Porto (beautiful city) which was only 45 minutes using the scenic route. The rest of the time we lazed around the villa. The nearby village is very small but has an excellent bakery and a small supermarket- more than sufficient. We did get caught out on a midweek night trying to find a restaurant that was open as it is off the beaten track for tourists but we did find one in the end! Yetin was really helpful and met us at the airport to show us the way and give us keys etc. Also there is a lovely garden maintenance guy called Antonio who comes by every evening to water and tidy the garden and clean the pool- he speaks french if your Portuguese is a bit rusty! He very kindly took our rubbish away with him each night! All in all a very good value location for a relaxing break- highly recommended. We were a group of 5 which fitted in to the accommodation perfectly- it sleeps more but we were comfortable having lots of space.

What an amazing place! All of us where only expecting a nice place to relax, but actually we got this amazing beautiful house with the best view ever! It is perfectly equipped with all you might need and that pool in the end of the day is just an wonderful addition to the fun time we got at the river beach. We tried to take all of our meals at the balcony just enjoying the sun and the light end of summer breeze we where so lucky to get. You should definitely take some days to enjoy this great place.

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 10 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

When I arrived to this place I thought I was entering in paradise:
Magnificence gardens, beautiful swimming pool overlooking the river, football pitch, an impeccably clean and cosy house and, as for the cherry on top of the cake, a nice bar house with a barbeque for maximum enjoyment!
OH! I miss having breakfast in the veranda surrounded by nature and gorgeous flowers and being inspired by the river/island views!
Can`t wait going back!

Our first time traveling to Northern Portugal. The host Yetin] was very friendly and willing to provide help and guidance on where to eat, visit etc. The accommodation was excellent, pool always clean [thanks Antonio], accommodation clean and spacious. The views were outstanding!
Highly recommended.
