We had the most wonderful and relaxing stay at this beautiful villa with breathtaking views of The Douro valley. A chance for various generations of our family to unite and enjoy a wonderful experience in our own different ways. Our host Palmeira was so welcoming and accomodating even though we pushed the boundaries with an extremely last minute booking.There were...

The villa is fantastic with large living space and ideal pool area, all with wonderful views. The local people are so friendly and helpful. Local restaurants are of good quality and very reasonably priced. We would recommend a visit to PenaCurva Bar, Rue Do Sol which does fine local and Italian food. We would definatley visit again.

Management response:

Hi Michele, We are glad you enjoyed so much! We hope to see you in the future. Best Wishes Palmira & John

Lovely large clean villa with great views, quiet location and fabulous pool. However, lacking in basic equipment such as enough loungers for the number of guests, kettle, sharp knives, decent glasses, grater, peelers etc which is annoying when you're only there for a week. We ended up buying a grater and bread knife. Large supermarket is about 30 km away...

Management response:

Hi Karen, Thank you for your review. I am disappointed you were not completely satisfied with your stay at my house. I already bought more loungers. This way, every guest will have one lounger. Concerning the kitchen utensils I am surprised because my guests usually tell me they are enough. Best Wishes Palmira
