Simon and Tildi are welcoming and helpful, they live in Spain but close enough to be on hand should the need arise. The house is located in a small village but is not over looked by any other house. The pool is good. The addition of WIFI means that teenage children do not feel too isolated. Reasonable shopping in Valenca and Tui which are only 10 minutes away. Plenty of winemaking both on the Portugese and Spanish sides of the border. If you want beaches they are about 30 minutes drive away, but we enjoyed just sitting in complete tranquility by the Minho river. Restaurants locally are quite simple but often very good value. more

We spent a fantastic week here in Northern Portugal, and the entire experience was perfect! Communication with the owners was effficient from the time of booking, with contact with Simon by phone on leaving Porto airport and arranging to meet in Valenca so that he could take us directly to the property( described as a cottage, but really more of a house!)
Spacious,well maintained accomodation: there were only 4 of us so the two teenagers had there own room each, air conditioning worked well, and we needed it as we had gloriously hot weather for the entire week!
The gardens are well tended, and huge: but the swimming pool is just the " icing on the cake" There were plenty of pool accessories: floats and the like for keeping us entertained.
Evenings were spent dining outside, marvelling at what a " gem" of a place we had found.
There were many, many books and DVDs to occupy the later parts of the day once the sun had gone down.
We loved the area...
