average rating of 4.875 based on 32 reviews

As per description. A very peaceful, beautiful and most relaxing house and gardens.

  • 5 of 5

If what you want from a holiday is total relaxation and peace. Look no further! The house and beautiful gardens are idyllically set in the amazing picturesque Portuguese countryside a few minutes drive from the River Douro.

Owners Armando, Anne and Zazi from the minute we arrived welcomed us with open arms. Their hospitality, generosity and knowledge of the area exceeded all expectations, we couldn't have wished for better Hosts and Gite to have stayed with/in.

The fact if the matter we are struggling to come to terns with our normal life style, so much different from Loivos da Ribeiro. We miss it and hope to return in 2018.

Thank you to both of you.

A warm welcome, a beautiful home from home, comfortable and relaxing, an amazing garden with a great pool. Perfect for sightseeing or for sitting in the sun or shade. Great restaurants close by. And the best hosts ever. Thank you Armando and Ann.

séjour formidable grâce aux propriétaires l'accueil est chaleureux et familiale

  • 5 of 5

Les bons conseils d'Armando pour les visites de sites, des fêtes locales, et pour les bons petits restaurants, et ses supers gâteaux.

Anne est une jardinière qui entretien un jardin formidable et dont la moindre graine pousse comme par miracle.

Tout cela nous à donner une super ambiance familiale.

Petit havre de paix et générosité

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très, très agréable séjour chez Anna et Armando. La maison, le jardin et la piscine sont vraiment fidèles à la description mais les hôtes ajoutent tellement au charme des lieux.

Nous avons découvert cette région du Douro qui est un véritable enchantement.

Bref, on a une seule envie, dire à nos amis, n'hésitez pas, vous passerez un merveilleux séjour!

Et comme dans tous les commentaires, un grand Armando pour tes pâtisseries et Anna, tous les cactus sont en pot....à suivre!!! Merci encore à vous, surtout ne changez rien!

très bel endroit dans une très belle région du Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Superbe semaine que nous venons d'achever.

La vallée du Douro est un endroit magnifique du Portugal qu'il faut connaître.

La maison d'Anne et Armando est bien située : à 20 Minutes de Rega, à 1 heure de Porto.

Très beau jardin géré par Anne, très bonne pâtisserie gérée par Armando.

belle piscine rafraichissante après nos différentes balades.

Nous avons également gouter à quelques spécialités : porto, vino verde, huile d'huile avec de très bons conseils des propriétaires. Armando nous a également gratifié de quelques oranges et citrons fraichement cueillis.

Natuur en rust

  • 4 of 5

Een hele hartelijke ontvangst van Anne en Armando in hun Portugese vakantiewoning.

Genoten van de mooie zichten op de wijngaarden, van de lekkere wijnen en de lekkere koekjes gebakken door Armando.

Rusten op het lommerrijke terras of genieten van het heerlijke zwembad en de bloementuin.

Tripjes maken door de mooie Douro-streek en de kleine dorpjes.

Het was weer heerlijk Portugal
