Great location, house and facilities

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week as a party of eight with three children. House and location were as described in photos/text and did not disappoint. Secluded location, excellent house and well kept gardens that suited us well. Pool was spotless with pool man and gardeners both attending during the week. House clean and well equipped with no problems - a little dated in places, but none the worse for it. Easy walk (15mins) to various cafes and bars with a wider choice within 30 minutes walk. No problems at all and would stay again.

Outstanding location for the beach & water-based activities, great house for larger group

  • 4 of 5

10 of us had an excellent time staying at Casa Pinhal - great gardens and nice pool for relaxing/reading, plenty of space inside and on the patio to choose a comfortable place to be. Ample bathrooms, bedrooms all worked for us ~ combinations of twins and doubles. Kitchen could use a little TLC, but all worked OK. Easy access to the local beaches (Atlantic and river-side) for surfing, horse riding, kite surfing etc., We also found quad-biking and canoeing locally too. Need a car really of you are planning to go out & about (enjoyed Braga, Barcelos, Porto). Would certainly consider returning to the area ~ even in mid July, temperatures were not at all oppressive ~ and also the house if future dates worked.

Amazing location Great Villa Friendly Service

  • 4 of 5

Less than 30 minutes drive door to door from Porto airport the journey from the airport was smooth and hassle free.....a great way to start a holiday with 2 kids and a demanding wife :-)!

From when we booked through Fernando and his team to when we arrived at the villa and were met by Joao it was a very smooth and pleasant experience.

And we weren't disappointed. The villa's location is quite simply breathtaking.....get the guys to send you an arial picture of the location - for some reason its not on the advert but we got it when we were sent directions etc!

We were right on a sort of peninsula - the river estuary on one side right by the garden ( we fished off the garden embankment and caught 2 fish!) and the seaside and beaches on the other side!

The house is in sort of a private enclave of nice big expensive villas yet only 5 minutes walk you have the local cafe, mini supermarket and three cafes on the beach. A further 5 minutes and you're in the heart of lots of restaurants. All good quality and so cheap!

We travelled as two small families - the kids loved it and so did the wives (the bosses!)

Thoroughly recommend the area and the villa

Ofir is located very far from Poland but it was worth a visit. Every minute was great. House is perfect in every way. I recommend.
