Had the pleasure of staying at this property in June 2014. What a delight it was. Our large group of 12 was very easily accommodated and it would be possible to have an even larger group than that.
The house exceeded expectations by some margin. It is huge, and beautifully presented. Each bedroom has its own ensuite and there are reception rooms a plenty for a large group to spend time together, or find a quiet spot to read, talk or listen to music.
In addition there's a billiard room with a full sized table, and a very substantial pool is located a little away from the house. The kitchen is perfect for a large group to share the meal preparation tasks. Oh, and there's a chapel....
The local village of Santo Tirso is charming and its inhabitants friendly and helpful. There's a couple of little stores, fresh produce, a wine bar and restaurant and cafes.
The owner of the villa was most charming and the caretaker engaging and helpful.
I have already recommended the property to other friends.More
