“Fantasstic holiday property - great views, outdoor space and pool!”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Fantastic holiday rental property!
We have stayed in some great places over the years but I rate this as one of our best finds! The 5 bedrooms are split across 2 buildings but they are only 10m apart so we had the 3 boys in one house and the rest of the party in the main house (where the kitchen, dining room, lounge area are based too). Interior rooms all well furnished with all that we needed but it's the outside bits of this property that really excel!!!

We were spoilt for choice in terms of outdoor eating places - big table next to the BBQ area, under the wisteria, downstairs terrace for lunch with views over the river, the balcony for evening drinks (more great views) and even one area behind the boys' villa that was tucked away overlooking the valley. And finally there was a conservatory type room off the BBQ area that we used for family games and snacks.

Very peaceful, lots of nature on the go (bird watching hubbie very happy and we think we saw an otter in the river), a treasure of a place to recharge batteries and views to die for overlooking the River Douro. Just blissful.

Worth noting that everyone in the booking chain from Helena, the owner and his wife were extremely helpful. Other top tips include knowing that this property is nearby to Souselo for local shops, the small beach approx 1kn from the villa is worth a visit, book in for a boat trip with Hugo/Filipe - details from Helena - well priced and you're able to go wherever you wish, suitable for up to 8/10 although we took just 6 people. Also, several bits and pieces were in place at the start of our holiday so no scramble for toilet/kitchen rolls, black bags, charcoal, milk, bread, cheese when we arrived in the evening. :)

And the pool was fantastic too! 1.1m deep in shallow end to 1.9m deep, biggest pool we've had, good access in one corner with steps and a handrail. Plenty of sunbeds and outdoor towels too.

Just one last thing - because there were quite a few steps around the villas (all the properties in this area are build on the sides of the valley) check out suitability for very young children and the infirm.

Highly Recommended!
