We could not be more satisfied with our visit to Casa D'Quinta. From our very first contact, Pedro was extremely helpful and polite in response to our enquiries. He went out of his way to help us organise our visit and was there to welcome us on arrival.

We were three adults and three children (aged 11, 13 and 15).

The house was beautiful, comfortable and very well appointed - it is as good as, if not better than in the photos, and our three children particularly enjoyed the swimming pool.

After our arrival, Pedro helped us to settle in, provided maps and advice and guided us to a nearby supermarket. We followed several of his restaurant recommendations from a simple local Portuguese restaurant a few kilometres away, to a seafood place on the beach, to a fine dining experience in Vila do Conde. All were memorable meals for us.

The property is located in a peaceful rural setting, but not far from Porto.

We cannot recommend this place (and Pedro) more highly.

“A fully equipped holiday home”
Reviewed May 30, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We couldn't recommend highly enough this property - from the quality of the house and its facilities to the most friendly and very accommodating owner. We arrived late in the house (with one toddler) following a 9 hour flight but the owner offered to organise a private catering firm to have dinner ready on arrival. Hassle free settling in. The next morning he brought us the most delicious croissants - still warm from the local bakery. The house is fully equipped with cot, children stair gate, children bath, wifi for our baby camera and even toys. We felt 'at home' straight away. My top tip would be to rent a car with GPS so that you can travel to the nearby beach; shopping outlets, supermarkets and to Oporto. We spent the most lovely 10-days in this property and wouldn't hesitate in coming back!

“Dream holidays in Casa D'Quinta”
Reviewed April 24, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We have spent 10 beautiful days in marvellous Casa D'Quinta. The house is very nice and tastefully decorated. We were eight people, but the house is big enough and the rooms spacious.(The beds are perfect). The garden is enchanting and the pool big and clean. Everything is provided (tennis rackets, balls...) to make you enjoy your stay.
It's very quiet and well situated to make visits in the area.
A special thanks to the host Pedro for his attentions (help, advice, kindness) that we 've appreciated. Thanks to his mother as well.
We highly recommend this property for a family stay : close to the airport without disavantadges, close to small beautiful towns and very practical (bakery, supermarkets...)

“Excellent”
Reviewed March 30, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Simply put this Villa was amazing.

From the beginning Pedro was there to answer my questions and queries and was very helpful, even to the point of making a dinner reservation on our behalf.

On arrival Pedro was there to greet us at this fantastic villa and gave us a tour of it and the beautiful surroundings, which include a lovely garden, tennis court and swimming and not forgetting the fresh orange trees.

The villa is beautifully furnished and maintained to a high standard and well stocked to accommodate a large travelling group. The surrounding area is peaceful and tranquil with some local amenities.

Larger towns, including Porto are only a 25 min drive away (most the towns have ample parking, even in the centre) and Pedro was available to give his recommendations of things to do and see.

Overall my family and I had a wonderful time in Porto and at the villa and would recommend it to anyway looking to get away.

This was our first visit to Portugal and we definately made the right choice to stay at Casa d' Quinta. As soon as we walked in the door we all felt at home. Pedro's mother had baked us a cake which was quickly demolished by my hungry family. There was fresh fruit and a lovely vase of flowers on the large dining room table. Pedro showed us around the house & property which is huge and very beautiful. The pool area was a favorite during our stay as was the tennis court. There was plenty of room in the house for our family of 8, very tastefully decorated, clean and tidy. Pedro bought croissants for us all on our third day and a huge basket of lovely fresh towels. On our last day he bought us a box of cookies to take on our journey which was also very appreciated by us all. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for somewhere special to stay near Porto, we loved it!

“Beautiful villa”

people found this review helpful

We have just returned from staying at this villa, and had such a wonderful time. The villa is absolutely beautiful and so well thought out.

The three bedrooms (each with a brilliant hairdryer) that we used were stunning, as were the bathrooms. The kitchen and lounge were also fantastic spaces, which accommodated the 7 of us quite comfortably.

Unfortunately the weather we had was quite mixed, but we still walked around the beautiful grounds daily, and made full use of the pool and patio by the house.

A car is a must for this area, and I would highly recommend a sat nav, as road signs aren't great.

We travelled as three couples, and our 2 year old daughter. We cannot thank Pedro enough for all his help in preparing for our stay, and the thought that went into our stay. On arrival Pedro had provided socket protectors, a high chair, plastic crockery and cutlery for our daughter, stair gates and a little teddy which is very much loved!

A huge thank you to Pedro for such a fantastic stay, and to his mother for the gorgeous bread she baked for us. Thank you.
