This was the second week of a two week stay in the North of Portugal organised through a villa agency called Portugal Holiday Villas - it's the second time we have used them and were looked after well again by them and their local team on the ground.
We stayed the first week in Ponte de Lima for which we have posted a review separately.
We thought the first house was nice but this blew us away - the price of the furniture and the décor must have been enormous - it's even nicer in real life and the views left us speechless, especially my other half who is not normally lost for words.
The service from Eugenia the housekeeper who came every morning at an agreed to time to make us breakfast was first class and we received a complimentary welcome meal which was delicious and very welcome after our drive.
Portugal Holiday Villas seem to have made strategic alliances with lots of local attractions and service providers so we were able to do things like visit Six Senses spa with a special offer and we did a boat trip, a picnic and also a dinner with a local winemaker who brought along his wines and gave us a talk over dinner.
This was a truly special week and one we won't ever forget
I have since read a very good article by International Travel Blogger of 2015 Nelson Carvelheiro which explains what we saw and felt much better than I can :-)
Top marks! Highly recommended
