“Perfection”
Reviewed September 16, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed for 2 nights in mid September. Loved it. Daniel has restored his grandparents house and made something very special. The house was one of the loveliest accommodation places I have experienced. Beautifully decorated and styled. Spacious bedroom, bathroom and living area. A small, private pool with 2 sun beds. Surrounded by the country side and the sound of goat bells. Daniel is the perfect host - friendly but not intrusive. Easy driving to the delightful villages of Marvao and Castelo de Vide. Loved every minute of our stay and wish we had been able to stay longer. Thank you Daniel. It was perfection.

It's the perfect place to disconnect from your daily life and stress. If you like the countryside this is the place to go. Perfect for long walks and even better if you have pets. The pool just adds up to everything else, even though i didn't get use it, my dog enjoyed it for both of us :p Great views, great food, great host, great house, great everything :).

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is the second time we have stayed at Casa dos Galegos because we loved it so much and the welcome was as warm as the first time. Daniel had been kind enough to fill the pool for us because he knows the children love to play in it no matter how cold the water is. Our pet dog also enjoyed its stay although I am not sure Daniel's cats can say the same.
We are planning to come back next year and the next and the next...

“Lovely apartment in the countryside”
Reviewed March 17, 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed here 3 nights. It's a two room place, one living room and a bedroom with ensuite. There was also a mezzanine level with another double bed. It's done up really nicely. The bed was so comfortable that we slept for 11 hours one night.

We went out of season but there was a log-burner to keep the place warm.

Daniel, the owner, is a lovely guy. Very friendly and willing to help. He provided some homemade bread, cakes and honey, as well as some wine and homemade soap.

Nice views out of the front door and from your own private patio. In the warmer months, the private pool would be lovely.

There is a really beautiful 13km walk in a loop from the apartment - through the countryside. It was very peaceful.

Would definitely recommend.

“Little oasis, perfect for relaxation”

person found this review helpful

Our family (2 adults and 2 children - 11 & 13 years old) stayed in this villa for a week in July 2015. The villa was very clean, had comfortable beds and lovely "touches" all around - beautiful hand-made soaps, candles etc. It's not very big for 4 people but absolutely perfect for a couple. The swimming pool was great and the outside space wonderful. Daniel was an most amazing host and made us feel very welcome. He created wonderful atmosphere for us on many occasions - one day a glass of port, another fresh bread or a lovely candle lit pool in the evening. We would like to thank him for his hospitality and wish him continued success with the business.

My wife and I stayed at Casa dos Galegos for 8 nights.
Accommodation clean and smart with own pool and BBQ area.
Daniel the property owner is very helpful and the ideal host, even supplied us with
local breads and cakes, very tasty.
Great place to relax with lovely views, ideally situated to visit towns such as Marvao,
Castelo de Vide etc.
Supermarket in nearby Castelo de Vide for all your fridge and BBQ needs.
If you are looking to chill out and relax, then this could be the place for you, likely we will
be back !
