We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at petes. There were 13 of us and managed to each have our own bed. The house is spacious enough and very accommodating with enough showers and toilets. A great view from the kitchen terrace complimented by a fantastic covered outdoor area with a bbq and a small splash pool. Pete even has a a...

I arrived and immediately felt comfortable. After two nights there I even decided to cancel all the other places I had arranged to stay in for my time in the Gois area. Pete is a wonderful host and creates a lovely atmosphere. The accommodation offered is in a beautiful picturesque village, the hostel is clean with a great interior and...

Pete is an excellent host and offers every thing you need before you know you need it from, river shoes to picnic blankets. The location is fantastic with mountains and river beaches that take your breath away. We went as a family with another family and it was so relaxing giving us a true experience of Portugal. We enjoyed eating...

I stayed here one night last August with my husband very friendly, price extremely reasonable, room airy and comfortable, and a lovely continental breakfast, with lots of choice. I would highly recommend staying at Pete's place.

The hostel is very informal and friendly, plenty of facilities especially for kids and teen agers so ideal for family groups as well as singles. Varzea Pequena is a nice little village near Gois and a good place to base yourself if rambling around this part of central...

A stay in Pete's Place was an unexpected addition to our trip in central Portugal and our holiday was enhanced for it. We spent time in a beautiful village full of really friendly local people who rub along happily with the small number of Brits who have been fortunate to excape the rat race and visiting tourists like us. Pete's...

The missus and I spent 3 days at Pete's in the middle of a mini tour round central Portugal. What a treat it turned out to be! The building is set in a traditional village which is populated by very friendly locals. The cafe 2 doors down is perfect for a (very cheap!) coffee or beer after a long day's...
