Casa D'Quinta is a wonderful place, both for the beautiful house and also for the attention given by the host Mr. Pedro.
The house is all refurbished, and combined modernity with the style of a country house. The ambiance of the house is purely formidable, giving a feeling of warmth that is hardly found outside your own home. On top of everything the cleanliness was spotless.
But what makes the Casa D'Quinta so special is attention that the host and his family has in receiving their guests. We had a magnificent reception, with Christmas decor, fire burning, fruit and a homemade cake. Mr. Pedro also provided maps, information and tips that we used throughout our stay.
Not only do I recommend Casa D'Quinta, as I plan to one day return to stay there.
The Christmas of my family was full of joy and affection due to the dedication attention of Mr. Pedro and his Family.
We stayed as part of a group of 2 families with 3 young children for a week in early September. Pedro was really helpful in the run up to the stay to make sure that we had everything we needed for the children and that things like stair gates etc were on. The gardens and grounds are great - lots of different areas for the kids to explore, lots of toys, inflatables, footballs, tennis equipment to use. The house is immaculate on the inside and Pedro’s love of interior design shows. Both him and his mother were very hospitable and he gave a great overview of the local area and what to do. Location is great, 20-30 minutes into Porto but lots of other bits to see locally which were worth a visit. Would definitely recommend
Casa D'Quinta is just a 20 minute drive from the airport, and Pedro kindly supplied directions and information about how long it usually takes from flight landing to arriving at Casa D'Quinata. Pedro was very helpful throughout the whole stay, always at the end of a phone to make sure we had everything we needed (or popping by with some pastries for us).
We were 6 friends staying at the property but it can easily fit more with the extra bedroom and plenty of seating, crockery, 32 candles etc. The house was very clean and all the rooms were fantastic.
We spent a lot of time playing tennis (rackets and balls provided) and in the large swimming pool. We also did a day trip into Porto and did a walking tour with 'Porto Walkers' which was a really fun tour and very informative, followed by some port tasting! On another day we did a surfing trip at a local beach. So there is plenty to do in the area...although you could easily spend all of your time at the villa!
Pedro's Mum had baked us a cake for our arrival which we ate freshly baked in the gardens, which was a lovely welcome. Cannot recommend this property and Pedro enough; we cannot wait to return!
Everything we expected and more. The Villa was spacious, clean, well appointed and lacked nothing. We stayed two weeks and towels were replaced half way through each week with a cleaning service between the two weeks. We picked fresh Oranges each morning and enjoyed making our breakfast juice, Apples, Pears and Passion Fruit were also in plentiful supply. The Pool was great and we enjoyed playing Tennis, Badminton, Football, Boules and Frisbee in the gardens as well as Table Football in the Garage. We have stayed in many lovely villas over the years but what made this so special was the service level provided by Pedro and his mother, Maria. They were so nice though out our stay, providing advice and help when needed but not at all obtrusive. Pedro very kindly met us at the airport late in the evening so we would not get lost on route, he gave us lots tips and advice on local places to visit, where to park and best routes even providing Sat Nav refs for us by text or message. Maria, made us lovely cakes and supplied local pastries frequently (we are so fat now), the kids thought it was just like having Granny about.....such lovely and attentive hosts. Thank you so much for making our holiday so special and one we will remember for years to come. We would not hesitate to recommend this as our overall experience was 5 STARS +
The location is amazing: the house and the properties are even better than shown on the pictures. The house is furnished tastefully and you'll find everything you need. The pool and the gardens are perfect, we enjoyed everything. We were allowed to help ourselves with all the fruit (oranges, plums, apricots etc.) from the gardens.
Pedro, the owner, and his family are lovely and very helpful - in advance and during our stay. It's a great place to relax and perfect when travelling with children.
We will come back.
We stayed here as a family of 9 and had a great holiday. Pedro was a wonderful host and his mother made delicious cakes throughout our stay which was a lovely surprise as we were starving when we arrived.
The villa is beautifully decorated and the grounds are spectacular. Lots to do in the area, however a car is a must.
All in all a wonderful holiday with equally wonderful memories...thank you Pedro.
Nice huge property clean and well maintained. The house is modern and confortable. The service by the owner is close, polite and extremely proffessional.
