average rating of 4.862069 based on 29 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.

Jon, Sharon, Katherine, Cleiton, Rob & Tracey

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

Sfeervol plekje

  • 4 of 5

Mooi plekje nabij de Douro-vallei. Prachtige geaccidenteerde tuin met veel groen, bloemen, zwembadje en genoeg zitplekjes, zowel in zon als in schaduw. Armando en Anne zijn gastvrij en in voor een praatje. Armando maakte ook wat lekkers voor ons en hielp ons met de vertaling van de allergieen van ons zoontje.

Grootste nadeel van het huisje was dat de eigenaar s nachts aan het werk was gedurende ons verblijf (hij is banketbakker) en dat kon je beneden waar wij verbleven goed horen. Dus voor mensen die daar gevoelig voor zijn, is dat belangrijk om te weten. De bedden zijn ook wat aan de korte kant voor mensen van 1.80 m en hoger.

Verder genoeg moois in de omgeving: Douro-vallei (richting Regua en verder), Guimaeres en Porto op 5 kwartier, evenals Park Alvao. Ook plaatsjes dichterbij als Amarante en Lamego zijn de moeite waard. Nog dichterbij zijn de hunebedden bij Cha de Parada.

Premier séjour au Portugal

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passez une semaine de vacances très agréable. Armando et Anne sont des personnes d'une grande gentillesse et d'une grande simplicité. La maison est fidèle au photo, il y a tout le confort, c'est propre rien à dire. Il suffit d'aller dans le jardin et la on se dit que l'on est vraiment en vacances, fleurs, palmiers et la piscine !!!! Nous avons pu voir un côté du Portugal ou le paysage est juste sublime. On y retournera s'est sur ! Merci Anne pour les graines qui sont sortis je penserai à vous en voyant les plantes grandir. Aurelie, Sylvain, theo, Charlotte et Jean.
