Notes:
At a glance This stunning town in Northern Portugal is sure to give you a true taste of the culture, the remote location means you’re certainly off the beaten track. There’s a range of adventure sports to enjoy so you can be as active or as laid back as you wish. From mountain biking to white water rafting or just pampering yourself in a well-renowned spa, a holiday to Mondim de Basto has it all. Mondim de Basto is close to a number of protected wildlife areas and the stunning Alvao National Park, which is great for families looking to spot a range of flora and fauna on a relaxing break to Portugal. Surrounding landscape Local cuisine Although the centre of town is not large by any accounts, there’s a charming traditional Portuguese feel and the locals are only too happy to tell you about their home. For the best in authentic flavours, eat out in one of the handful of restaurants and cafes that are dotted around and ask what the daily special is – you’re sure to get something

Beautiful, traditional Portuguese holiday

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week long stay with teenagers at this very beautiful and spacious house. The pool, bedrooms and bathrooms were a good size and well equipped. It is not easy to find once off the A7 even with satnav, but the owner met us in Atei so that we could follow him to the house. The owners made us feel very welcome in their home and made sure that we had contact details in case of an emergency. The housekeeper and gardening staff were respectful and friendly and did not intrude in our stay at all. We did not visit the restaurant next door as it displayed no opening times and only opened once during our stay when it was noisy until 11pm. The situation of the property is very rural which is just what we were hoping for, but this does mean that there are no shops or facilities within easy reach. The roads are mountainous and narrow and I'm not sure we would have wanted to travel in the dark on them. If you are looking for a very traditional Portuguese holiday, in a beautiful area and in a wonderful house, then this is definitely for you. We would go back again as it is a good base for exploring the area, and we were made to feel very welcome.

Beautiful Villa in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

The house and gardens are very beautiful. As it is located quite remotely you definitely need a sat nav to ensure that you find it, but once found you will not be disappointed. The owners met us (despite our late arrival) to hand over keys and talk us though the essentials: they were very kind and ensured we felt that we should make ourselves comfortable and at home during our visit. The pool is a very good size and is set within beautifully maintained gardens with lots of options ore dining/seating/lounging and plenty of shade. Whilst the photos show the house is quite formal it was very comfortable and relaxing to holiday in. The linen was all changed mid week. The nearest restaurant in next door (literally) but don't let this put you off: the food is very good and extremely reasonably priced, the staff all very friendly, and we were never disturbed by their guests. They close on a Monday and I would highly recommend popping in to book as it is popular. We found the Mondim de Basto the easiest town to visit for a supermarket and other restaurants at about an 18 mins drive away. The area is very quite but everyone we met was friendly and helpful (despite our complete lack of Portuguese ) and we easily got by as even ordering a mystery plate always resulted in good food! A car is essential. I would visit again and recommend this holiday home for others.

A relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We had two wonderful relaxing weeks in this beautiful house. We enjoyed the garden, the peaceful area and surroundings in general. The house is full of atmosphere and is very well-appointed. The bedrooms on the lower floor has a very pleasant temperature – also at night. There are a lot of terraces and places where you can relax in the garden or by the house - it is possible to find a place to relax - whether you prefer sun or shade.

The size of the pool is really good both for playing and swimming.

The house owner is very welcoming - and will do much to make you feel at home. The cleaning and gardeners are both friendly and discreet and ensures a very high standard.

There are good shopping possibilities both in Mondim de Basto and Arco de Baulhe, located 15-30 minutes from the house.

In Ribeira de Pena there is an adventure park, with many amazing rides for the whole family - kayaking, canyoning, climbing and rafting, mini golf etc etc.

The area is very beautiful and along the river there are many fantastic seaside resorts - both for swimming and jumping off the rocks. We will definitely come back to the area again.
