About the property

House in Fridao, Nr. Amarante, Costa Verde, Portugal - Very Peaceful And Secluded Location, 10 Minutes From The Town Of Amarante

This fully equipped property has been completely modernised and updated with underfloor heating, solar panels, double glazing and WIFI. It has two large reception rooms, modern kitchen and dining area and also a separate laundry room. Outside it has its open 9 metre, heated pool, various terraces, some grassed some paved, and large outdoor eating area complete with barbecue. There's plenty to see in the area with many excellent good value restaurants. However, you may prefer to just relax and enjoy this idyllic location with a glass of the local Vinho Verde wine. Fantastic in the summer but equally good and cosy in the winter with the under floor heating and log burning stove.

Beautiful holiday

  • 5 of 5

4 (2 adults, 2 kids) of us have just returned from 2 weeks of bliss at this house. Stunning house, with every detail considered to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Spacious rooms, fully equipped lounge, kitchen, laundry. Not that much time was spent inside (apart from one marathon Monopoly session during one rainy spell!). Most of the holiday was spent by the beautiful pool, and yes the water was more than warm enough at 28 degrees.

Incredible views stretching across the river and valley, many a lazy evening was sat by the BBQ just taking in the scenery and many vineyards.

The hosts live next door and special thanks to them for all their help in making our stay so wonderful. They were on hand to chat, offer advice, etc without being intrusive in any way. Special thanks for being so brilliant with our children! And of course, who can forget 'Millie' the dog!

If you want a relaxing and luxurious break in a breathtaking part of Portugal, this is the place for you!

6 of us spent a most enjoyable week here. We have used self catering type accommodation throughout Europe over many years, but have never had such well equipped and splendidly presented property as this. Well done Sue and Paul.

the house was great and exactly like the pictures on the site, however it was stated that the house had a heated pool, but when we were there the water was freezing. So the description heated pool is not correct.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.We are pleased that the house was as you expected . We are sorry that you were disappointed with the pool.It is heated by solar and having a few dull days before meant the temperature was 28 We would love to have you stay again when the pool is warmer. Kind regards Susan.

perfection personified

  • 5 of 5

Without doubt this beautifully renovated secluded "casa" was a real find. An absolute bonus was having the owners living nearby who were incredibly professional and were on hand for all our many questions about the hidden charms of this part of Portugal. The house was immaculate and perfect for my husband and I and various teenage grandchildren to spend a glorious ten days. The pool was fantastic and serviced on a daily basis. We shall definitely recommend Casa Velha to our friends and will certainly return.
