“Casa da Roda – Dolce Vita in Beiras”
Reviewed September 12, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What’s new after 4 times in Casa da Roda villa ?
The house and its hosts are always friendly (and the basket of food), the swimming pool, the lake, the view – enjoy !
It's set in stunning countryside, a perfect location for walks and dips in the rivers.
Our favorite river beaches are Gois, Secarias, Benfeitas . You can find facilities café-bars and lifeguards even TV sets in trees !
Arganil tourism office gave us very good indications about points of interest around.
The Library in Arganil is a quiet and fresh place and gives a free internet service, Portuguese books and magazines to practice the language…
Thanks, Linda and Geoff.

“Perfect stay in a perfect villa.”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Roda.   04-08-2012
We 've had two wonderful weeks. The villa was great and with the welcome pack of food and wine we felt more than welcome. We 've made some trips to Gois, Coimbra and the Atlantic coast, but most of the time we 've enjoyed staying at the villa with the beautiful riversight. Our two boys enjoyed the swimming pool very much also fishing by the river and sailing with the boat.

Thanks Geoff and Linda for your hospitality, you have made it a great holiday!

Kind regards,

“A quiet oasis with a fantastic view”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A beautiful villa that is very well stocked, with a fantastic welcome pack on your arrival.
There is lots of places to sit and relax in and out of the sun and being able to cool in the salt water pool. Our group aged from 79 -16 years old and we all really loved our time there.
Eating outdoors with a fantastic view and breeze, taking the rowing boat out on the lake really made our time there very special.
Lynda and Geoff were very helpful with information and advice about the local area.

“Beautiful, quiet haven”
Reviewed July 31, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

If you are looking for an idyllic setting with sun and pool this is the one. The view is sublime, we just stared out at the lake for hours. It did get pretty hot when we were there (fair skinned, not used to sun Brits), but you could dip in the pool and the house always had a cooler spot where you could curl up and read a book.

Lin and Geoff were perfect hosts. Although they live on site, both parties have privacy. They were very welcoming. They also make sure you have basic foodstuffs so you don’t have to dash out for food as soon as you get there. The well-stocked fruit bowl was a lovely touch.

Geoff built the house and it is done to a very high standard. Much better than most purpose built holiday homes.

The local area is very pretty. Small villages dotted along winding hill roads. This is not a very touristy area and is not highly populated, but it has all the basics. Don’t expect swanky restaurants and bars. I have to admit it did seem strange having to buy our ‘treat yourself’ holiday foods in Lidl as there were not many other options. So perhaps it is not an area for foodies, but we fared OK and we didn’t end up spending a fortune.

This is the place to come when the world has got on top of you and you just need to stop and relax - oh and have a bit of fun with Lin and Geoff’s two friendly dogs.
