“Tranquil Family Villa near the beautiful Douro River”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I just returned from a trip with my wife, two young children (6 & 4) and Father and Mother-in-law and already want to go back! The Villa is lovely and set high up a beautifully peaceful valley overlooking the rolling hills. In terms of the accommodation, there is a double en-suite room, a standard double and also a twin in the downstairs area. Upstairs on the mezzanine level is a double bed and also a fold down bed (which we didn't use). Also downstairs is a decent size kitchen and then a dining / sitting area which we tended only to use for breakfast as we ate at the outside table and chairs for lunch and dinner. There is an exterior 'kitchen' with a BBQ and sink (which we used loads) and there is also a table football game and 'wine cellar' area with a pool table (and washing machine)! The pool is lovely and refreshing and the owner came to clean it when we asked him to. The owner was very friendly & communicative and kindly bought us cake and home made Port as an arrival gift (as well as telling us we could pick any fruit we wanted from the garden, which included raspberries, strawberries, kiwis, pomegranates, pears and apples). In terms of being able to buy supplies, it really is pretty remote but Resende is a 15-20-minute drive and has the excellent Pingo Doce supermarket which gave us everything we needed. We took a few day trips (Amarante & Porto are worth a visit) plus wine tasting too! These trips can be done via train if you prefer as the roads really are very winding and not great for anyone who gets car-sick! We did some interesting walks straight from the villa down to the old river bridge at the bottom of the valley and also up to the incredible giant rock on the top of the hill next to Capela de Sao Joao. The house has a 'wifi' mobile data dongle which is free for guests to use but it didn't seem to be working for us (quite nice to be disconnected from the internet for a while to be honest but a little frustrating on the days when I needed to do a bit of work). All in all a really lovely place that I heartily recommend!
