“Lovely apartment in the countryside”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed here 3 nights. It's a two room place, one living room and a bedroom with ensuite. There was also a mezzanine level with another double bed. It's done up really nicely. The bed was so comfortable that we slept for 11 hours one night.

We went out of season but there was a log-burner to keep the place warm.

Daniel, the owner, is a lovely guy. Very friendly and willing to help. He provided some homemade bread, cakes and honey, as well as some wine and homemade soap.

Nice views out of the front door and from your own private patio. In the warmer months, the private pool would be lovely.

There is a really beautiful 13km walk in a loop from the apartment - through the countryside. It was very peaceful.

Would definitely recommend.

“Little oasis, perfect for relaxation”

Our family (2 adults and 2 children - 11 & 13 years old) stayed in this villa for a week in July 2015. The villa was very clean, had comfortable beds and lovely "touches" all around - beautiful hand-made soaps, candles etc. It's not very big for 4 people but absolutely perfect for a couple. The swimming pool was great and the outside space wonderful. Daniel was an most amazing host and made us feel very welcome. He created wonderful atmosphere for us on many occasions - one day a glass of port, another fresh bread or a lovely candle lit pool in the evening. We would like to thank him for his hospitality and wish him continued success with the business.

“Perfect place to relax and wind down”

My wife and I stayed at Casa dos Galegos for 8 nights.
Accommodation clean and smart with own pool and BBQ area.
Daniel the property owner is very helpful and the ideal host, even supplied us with
local breads and cakes, very tasty.
Great place to relax with lovely views, ideally situated to visit towns such as Marvao,
Castelo de Vide etc.
Supermarket in nearby Castelo de Vide for all your fridge and BBQ needs.
If you are looking to chill out and relax, then this could be the place for you, likely we will
be back !

“Lovely relaxing week in a beautiful house”
Reviewed 29 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Marvão and the surrounding area are a great part of Alentejo that is worth a visit. The host, Daniel, is lovely, welcoming, and spoiled us with delicious treats during all our stay.The house has a mixed decor of traditional and modern, with attention to detail and very clean. The private pool is a great place to relax and to get refreshed after exploring the area with that warm and sunny weather. Another plus for us were the cats, very friendly, with the new kittens making us laugh. Overall, we strongly recommend Casa dos Galegos, we will be back in a near future.
