“Fabulous house, fabulous garden, lovely area of Portugal, great local town.”
Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The house is set a little outside (30 mins walk) the centre of Viana do Castelo in an area of mixed holiday houses, family homes and small farms. It looks down a gentle slope to the sea about 1 km away to the West (i.e. you get a sunset view every evening).

The house is in essence single storey but very spacious with 3 double bedrooms and 3 generous bathrooms. There is a massive sitting/eating room and decent sized kitchen (large enough to sit and eat as well as cook). The jewel in the crown however is the very spacious veranda that runs round the South and West side of the house with plenty of room for a dining table for eight, a hammock and much else.

The house is really well designed and the gardens are fabulous, just a blaze of colour and beautifully laid out. It's just a real pleasure to be there.
The house also has a very large basement consisting of another dining room, a sitting room with a very good pool table, the third room is a huge and has a table tennis table, table football and room for a car. We had a great time playing all three games.

We stayed for 3 weeks with 5 people and could easily have stayed longer.

If there is one small criticism it would be that it's important if you are staying this long for there to be adequate cooking utensils and other things such as washing powder and dish washer tablets, that seems fair for this kind of rental. Please note that when we requested these items they were provided immediately without fuss, our hosts were great and could not have been more helpful, welcoming or friendly.

We would unreservedly recommend this house, a great place to stay in a lovely area of Portugal.

“Spacious,. Cool, Relaxing & Fun!”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Came here after 2 very enjoyable days in Porto. A great house to stay in with best bits for us being: (a) the terrace overlooking the sea (cool breeze coming at you from sea - which we needed as hot); (b) the games rooms in basement (opening garage door gives fresh air & sunlight). No darts board or gym equipment as in photos but table football was great for all as was table tennis & pool (good sound system as well); (c) the lovely & numerous small birds who chirped & flew all day; (d) the top terrace for dining; (e) it's location (esp. if you have a car) near lots of different places including Ponte de Lima, Tuy and A Guarda in Spain, the beach at Villa Praia de Ancora; and Viana do Castelo itself (though we usually took the 50 mins coastal walk option & not car). Diogo and his parents (who all met us and came to say bye) were very friendly. What would make it better? - a guestbook so guests can leave ideas for trip, restaurants etc (we meant to but & start one but .....), a map, a kettle, more wine glasses and mugs, things like salt & pepper, Olive Oil and a few dish-washer tablets + details on where the nearest supermarket was , best way to walk to Viana etc + more than 2 loungers in the garden (you can add the hammock but as it sleeps 6 it should cater for 6). But most of those can be overcome by being prepared and using google maps etc (Wi-Fi only consistent in lounge and 'sun room'). Oh and if there could be a sign to ask cars to slow down and be careful rather than their beep their horns when they get to the top of the road. But we loved it and would come back again for sure! Thanks Diogo and parents
