5/5 Excellent

Enjoyed our stay in the Douro Valley
Tidy, small, likely comfortable for 2 people only. Friendly owners. In a quaint village just off the main road so very peaceful. Just the way we like it!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely country town location.
Excellent country town location, modern, well equipped for nice meals, great neighbors and hosts were very helpful and friendly. Everything we needed was close by. Quiet town.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely rural stay
My husband and I loved this little abode in a very rural small old village. Our balcony overlooked the cafe/mini market/bar which was the social hub of the village. By midweek in our stay, we were exchanging greetings with each arriving and departing customer. You can walk on stone paths for miles amongst grape vines, olive trees and smaller vegetable tracks. The vistas are unbelievably expansive. The village is extremely rural and yet all the Douro Valley high spots are within an easy drive. You must have a car. Although the apartment is also small, it fit our needs perfectly. And was well equipped. We highly recommend this place for active visitors who like rural living and getting to know the local people.

4/5 Good

Very modern and comfortable with amazing balcony

Visitar o Douro e fazer parte da aldeia
Fomos recebidos de uma forma muito acolhedora e simpática, sendo o Sr. José bastante prestável e estando sempre disponível. Aldeia muito pitoresca e típica do Douro vinhateiro com a sua amigável e calorosa gente. Sendo disso o exemplo perfeito o café e mercearia junto à habitação. Reconstrução da casa muito bem conseguida e com todas as comodidades disponíveis para uma agradável estadia. Localização ideal para descobrir e visitar muitos dos pontos e locais de interesse espalhados pelo Douro. Experiência a repetir futuramente, com certeza!
