Fabulous Home with great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We were two small young families with kids not at school age yet 2-4 yrs old.

The house is gorgeous much nicer than the pictures

The owner speaks fluent English and used to be a teacher in London - so charming

We loved the outdoor pool and pool

house with its kitchen, dining area and shower room and WC

We basically prepared all we needed for the day - took it out to the pool house and sat by the ALL day - never needed to return to the house!

A couple of times we walked into town - very easy and with the kids buggies it was even easier

Did a couple of day trips too - one to Porto which took 35 minutes on the motorway but there is a train if we had wanted and the other was to Vila do Conde on the coast - great beaches and it

Took about 25 minutes

Braga is lovely - great cafes and restaurants and such friendly people - very cheap too!

We had such a great time

A holiday gem on the outskirts of Braga

  • 5 of 5

A really unique villa with a luxury feel and every need catered for. Our 5 kids love swimming and the pool , pool house and poolside eating facilities were 'top notch '. In fact it was rather difficult some days to pull ourselves away from the Villa to go sightseeing. Maria , the villa owner , was available whenever we needed her and was always genuinely interested in making our holiday a memorable one. Northern Portugal offered many delights and we spent time at lovely beaches, many of the historic and pilgrim sites, shopping, football match in Porto, nearby adventure park and lots more. We stayed for 2 weeks but would have loved more !!

Gorgeous Villa walking distance Braga City Centre

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and location of this lovely home. The pictures don't do it justice. The pool and the pool house and outdoor kitchen were perfect for our family and we practically never used the main house except to sleep in such was the fun we had. Fernando and his team were wonderful in organising everything for us from the initial booking through to meeting us at the airport to escort is to the villa. Maria our host was so friendly and helpful and our kids adored her!

Braga itself was an amazing city and the range of cafes and restaurants was simply fab and the prices were so cheap! It's the first time we have come back with spending still on our pockets!

Highly recommended!
