Our stay was an enchantement ! It is a wonderful place, we enjoyed the gardens, the swimming pool, the tennis court and the other games. House 1 is very confortable, we had all that we needed. Thank you to Maria and Jose for their welcoming and their kindness, we will never forget them. The only thing thing difficult at the arriving is to find the adress because our GPS doesn't know this street. It will be nice to notice the GPS tracking on the website. We recommend this rental.

Best wishes to Maria and Jose

A wonderful stay!!!

  • 4 of 5

Duas semanas inesquecíveis!! A nossa primeira férias juntos e como a gente aproveitou! A Quinta São Miguel é realmente muito bonito e sossegado, muito bem cuidado! Deu para a gente relaxar o máximo, diferente daqui da cidade grande! Sentimos saudades da linda vista para o mar, como é lindo!!!

Para nós não faltou nada, curtimos o máximo!

Um dia se Deus quiser voltaremos com a nossa família a Quinta São Miguel.

Flávia, Paul e seu Paulino obrigado por tudo!!

Abraços Adriano e Betina

Beautiful house and gardens ! Great holiday!

  • 5 of 5

House 2 : prachtig huis, cool binnen tov warmte buiten. Goede matrassen. Alle apparaten zijn voor handen. Huis wordt gepoetst tijdens het verblijf en een nieuwe lading verse handdoeken wordt gebracht. Zeer mooie en gigantische tuin, super onderhouden. Volledig afgesloten domein met bewaking. Rustige omgeving.

De site vermeldt 11 slaapplaatsen. Wij vinden dit geschikt voor 7 + ... . 7 degelijke comfortabele bedden en 2 slaapbanken geplaatst in living en hal.

Materiaal voor pingpong, darts en tennis is ook voorzien.

Leuke verwelkoming met fles porto en duur koffiesetje. Zeer hartelijke gastvrouw en -heer. Je kan ze alles vragen.

Aandacht voor details: kleine zeepjes, wasproduct, vaatwastabletjes,.... Alles was er.

Veel activiteiten en bezienswaardigheden in de buurt.

AANRADER!!!!! Zeker weten!

Thanks Flavia and Paul.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cozy house with an amazing view in the country side. We had a perfect time with our family there! The pool is perfect and very clean. Flávia is extremely helpful and friendly! The staff that keeps the property is lovely. You can drive to the sea and to historical towns very easily (recommend GPS). We really recommend! Travel to the north of Portugal and feel at home!

un séjour formidable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la house 1, sur le site c’est très joli mais c’est encore mieux sur place.

La propriété est magnifique avec son parc, son terrain de tennis et sa piscine avec vue panoramique.

Notre maison en duplex est très charmante et dispose d’un accès prive, d’une terrasse ombragée et une autre sur le toit avec cette vue incroyable.

Curvos est très bien placé pour visiter Barcelos, Braga, Guimarães, Porto ect…

Merci pour votre gentillesse et votre disponibilité.

Anabela et Fabrice.

Lo tiene todo, hasta los pequeños detalles

  • 5 of 5

Mereció la pena ir allí. Fuimos mi marido, yo y el perro .La casita genial, lo tiene casi todo q necesitas en casa, con tres porches para disfrutar segun el momento, no le falta casi ni un detalle. El sitio espectacular y el entorno precioso. En la casita tienen Cafetera Dolce gusto y tienes cuando llegas una cajita con sus cápsulas. Un pequeño baul con juegos, raquetass tenis,pinpon y sus pelotas, baraja... La cocina completisima hasta jabon para los platos... Cuarto de baño con mucha luz y amplio, toallas no te hace falta ni la de la piscina, secador de pelo bueno. Muy importante buen colchon y asi fue.Cuarto con lavadora, plancha, tabla, tendedero, pinzas ropa y pastillas jabón lavadora. Pequeña barbacoa, te tienen una cajita con carbón.

Estuvimos once días y muy bien. La piscina esta fenomenal, tienes grandes playas a 10 minutos, pero la tranquilidad y paz que se respira allí, no quieres ni playa. Hay 3 casas más en la quinta pero ni se nota, es grandísimo y esta preciosa. Tienes para pasear, lo del estanque esta precioso, y la zona de juegos y merendero tambien..Mereció la pena y volveremos.
