My wife and I booked in for ten nights with our two children, aged 7 and 4 and were really unsure as what to expect...on arrival we were so delighted firstly with the accomadation: OMG the Noble room is amazing! Also our hosts, Carolina and Paulo met us with a glass of port on the poolside!!! and the welcome was being welcomed home rather than to accomadation! From the very first day Carolina was great she offered us other rooms as she said that the Noble room could be noisy with trains and to be honest yes there were trains but nothing that would affect your sleep! So we stayed in the room as it was so amazing......
The house is amazing we had other guests in the house for two nights from US: what a great time we all had together it all felt like a family....the area that the guests have is large, romantic and atmospheric with lots of seating areas and of course the POOL(salt water great for the skin and children)..thank God for that it helped exhaust the kids.
The hosts could not have been better as i said it was like visiting family....Carolina added a feeling of being looked after with her coffee strong in the mornings outside and we would wile away the morning talking and chatting...the obvious link was our Irish heritage....Paulo was such an amazing font of local knowledge and information. The piece de resistance was both escorted us into porto for St Johns celebrations and we had an amazing time with them, and their son, Renato...Of course there was Franciscia,Carolina has rased an amazing girl who got up when we came home at 1:30am from st johns celebrations because our kids wanted to see her and also to watch them put up paper lanterns....thanks for such a special memory guys
Location is great the Cafe does the most amazing pasteries near the firestation...Mr Rabbits does great portuguese chicken which is next door...also the rain station is 1 min from the house and brings u direct to Porto to San Benito station....it is an amazing city...my wife preferred it to Venice...the beach is beautiful but seas were rough but still fab walks..the church at mirimar is etheral...go to Elas Bar near the aquarium which is worth the visit with the children. There is a nice beach bar on the way to Mirimar which is lovely as are all the bars/cafes at Mirimar....
Carolina and her family made this trip for us a total dream...any reluctance we had dissipated on sight of her home and her welcome and her kindness. Roses Village is a very special place that feeds your soul and mind...we will be back for the laughs, coffees, chats and glasses of port!! XXXX
