Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house which has been beautifully furnished. We had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed the 'secret' swimming pool in the grounds. The hosts were brilliant too - really helpful and also provided a welcome basket of fruit and veg which was really tasty and very much appreciated. Would stay again.

Great villa in an idyllic location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was clean and well decorated. Kitchen equipment was a little basic but we managed OK. Quirky shared pool at the top of a pool was very refreshing in the heat. Overall we had a great week and would recommend this property.

Cosy house in great location with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

(see below for english)

Der ideale Ort für einen entspannten Urlaub in Nordportugal. Porto ist schnell zu erreichen (mit PKW oder Regionalzug in ca. 45min). Weitere sehenswerte Orte im Umkreis von einer PKW-Stunde.

Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Begrüßt wurden wir mit frischem Obst (Maracuja!) , Gemüse, Wein, Käse, Oliven und selbstgemachter Marmelade.

Rund um das Haus erstrecken sich Weinfelder und ein kleiner, bewaldeter Hügel mit Pool. Insgesamt super zum "Herunterkommen" und um Sonne und Ruhe zu genießen.

Perfect location to relax, very warm welcome with fresh fruits, vegetables, homemade marmelade and wine. The house is surrounded by wineyards and a little wooded hill with a pool on top is nearby. Porto and other interesting cities can be reached by car or local train in less than one hour. We definitely recommend this place! Thanks to Benedita and Paulo for the nice stay.

A gem! A unique delight!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a friend for a week in April 2014. It’s taken me too long to write a review and I can only add to the chorus of other positive comments.

The hosts are warm, welcoming, generous and helpful. They piloted us from Penafiel to the location since we needed help. We were surprised when we followed them into the courtyard of the estate - this is it? We stay here???? More surprises and delights followed as we walked through the vineyards to the pink cottage of our dreams. So tastefully decorated and so generously provided - for Canadians, lemons from a local orchard are something very special!

We didn’t just feel comfortable but cared for too. Don’t forget to explore the woods and the Magic Mountain - climb to the cross and the pool and find artifacts and treasures along the way.

You can easily make day trips to Porto on the train from Meinedo and you are within reach of other worthy destinations - Amarante and Guimaraes.

Our stay here has become a high point in a lifetime of travel experiences. We hope to return one day soon. Just book it!

A special place

  • 5 of 5

We were happily surprised by the warm welcome we received from proprietors.

The house is beautifully situated in the middle of a vineyard, well equiped and tasefully decorated. Good beds.

Bustelo near Penafiel is located in the beautiful vinho verde region between Porto, Guimarães and Amarante, cities worth a visit. You can easily travel to the centre of Porto by train.

We have enjoyed our stay very much and we hope to return to this beautiful place.
