“Wonderful accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Wow, this was a modern two storey, 3 bedroom townhouse - beautiful accommodation – one of 200 on a 9 hole golf course. We were only two people, so they locked two bedrooms up, but allowed us access to two bathrooms to get a walk in shower. Kitchen had everything that you needed, drying rack for clothes, ironing board & iron. The Vale Pisao Resort is surrounded by Australian Eucalyptus trees and over 50% of them had been burnt in the 2013 bushfires. Thankfully, the bushfires were contained outside the Vale Pisao Resort during our stay, but this was not the case earlier in 2013 because the fires burnt right up to the green and to the wall of some of the town houses.
The big negative about this accommodation was that there was no Internet at the town house. The Golf Club reception, 150 m away, had free Internet available during working hours, this was a nuisance to us.
The accommodation was 25 minutes drive out of Porto on the freeway.
Unfortunately, we found it difficult locating the resort because we were not given GPS co-ordinates & all the sign posts for several km are non – standard, as they are the words “VALE PISAO” laser cut out of 45x15 cm sheets of rusted mild steel backed by white painted material – one could not imagine a more difficult visual signage . These signs are placed at corners of cobble stone country lanes as well as on a couple of modern roundabouts and they blend into the country background.
We did not want to play golf, but we understand packages are available.
We would not stay here again because of the lack of Internet access, the difficulty of locating the complex after leaving the free-way and the real fear of bush fires during the Summer months. During our stay we had an evacuation plan in place & a Hotel to escape to if necessary.
