Luxurious & private getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this villa with our two children, who really enjoyed the pool and outdoor games - as well as the hammock. The villa was spotless, and we were made very welcome on arrival with a basket of food and vino verde - great after a delayed flight into Porto! Sergio was really helpful organising local activities, so many thanks to him and Distinctive Portugal. Would love to stay again!

Top quality, everything was fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Again, the pictures do not do it justice! A fabulous garden, a beautiful pool, an idyllic setting. The fit and finish of this villa is excellent. The bbq area is superb, the beds extremely comfortable, beautiful bathrooms. Fresh fruit growing in the garden, a separate tennis court, football area which my 9 year old Son adored. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. The housekeeper who lives nearby was very polite and the place was spotlessly clean when we arrived. Only two things let it down. The correspondence from the owner was poor in advance of the visit, I had to chase confirmation they had received my money etc.and barking dogs at night in the valley was a shame!
