Casa da Barca is a beautiful detached house, located in the National Park of Peneda Gerês with an unforgettable view of the river Cavado and surrounded by lush green mountains. Not far from the property are natural cascades. The house has 6 double bedrooms, each with their own in suite bathrooms and a new fully functional kitchen with modern appliances. The property is all in granite made in the old style . This property benefits of the very large esplanade which shares with the 2 bedroom house next door, owned by us. Same as the pool.

A beautiful retreat in an amazing part of the world.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 3 families, each with 2 adults and 3 kids. We wanted a relaxing place to have a holiday together....and this house was perfect in every way! The location is stunning, with views over the dam. The house has been beautifully renovated and had a fresh and clean feel. The kitchen is well equipt. The pool area is relaxing and kept the kids busy for hours. The owner also owns a mini-mercado 5 min drive away. There are stunning waterfalls and hikes just minutes drive away. Definitely want to go back! Highly recommended.

Best place in the world to relax

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and tidy! Everything around it is so nice and natural! The owners Manuel and Paula was very helpful and lovely! We visited 7 lagoas, Ponte da misarela, cascate of pincaes and lake of Barca! We had such a lovely dinner on Maria's restaurant fojo do lobo! We had a choice of taste a wild pig! Everything was so nice! We really recommend this to all my friends, I'm sure they will love it the same way us do!

Paradise on earth !

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house after driving in the nature , eucalyptus trees , pines ... so lovely and then at the end of the little road it was amazing to see the big villa with beautiful manicured garden and pool ! Yet , it's far away from all so need a car , but if you are looking for peace , hearing owl at evening , and feeling one with the nature , than it's really for you !The house was very clean, with beautiful kitchen, big bedrooms with ensuite shower and toilet , a view from each to the nature , top of the bill : the owners ! So helpful , REALLY friendly and take time for you to feel good. Thanks to them we saw many beauties like ponte de Misarela , and the fantastic park called Lake of CIGNES close to Braga , this park is really worth a visit and it's open till 2 a clock in the morning ! Eaten in good restaurants and really enjoy every little place around Cabril , we are very sad to leave but will keep such a good memory , and Manuel and Paula will stay in our heart !

Fim-de-Semana Geresástico

  • 5 of 5

Adoramos o fim-de-semana que passamos aqui. Casa espaçosa, tal e qual como nas fotos e com uma visita de cortar a respiração.

O Sr. Manuel e a D. Elisabete foram espectaculares na disponibilidade e flexibilidade que nos deram. E a vizinha (penso que não lhe pergntamos o nome) também nos deixou super à vontade!

Adoramos e ficou a vontade de cá voltar no Verão! Muito Obrigada :)

Não correspondeu às expectativas

  • 2 of 5

As vistas são realmente deslumbrantes e a zona envolvente muito bonita.

No entanto a casa não corresponde ao que se visualiza nas fotos. Parece ser muito grande mas na realidade é apenas no comprimento, na largura é pequena, dando a sensação de ser um corredor. Os quartos são pequenos mas agradáveis.

A situação mais desagradável é desconfortável é o número de câmaras e os locais para onde estão direcionadas. Pelo menos 10 câmaras sendo que a sua maioria está em vigilância do interior da propriedade, inclusivamente duas a visualizar a piscina. Sensação de que estamos constantemente a ser vigiados, filmados e gravados. Em nenhum local tem indicação de existência desses equipamentos. Para quem está com crianças torna-se bastante desconfortável...

Owner's Response: Boa tarde, desculpe mas não me lembro de ter sido feita alguma reserva em seu nome, mas respondendo as suas questões a da casa não corresponder ao que esperava pois as foros são reais, nem mais nem menos! Todos os quartos são maiores que as medidas exigidas pelo turismo de portugal, o corredor tem a largura exigida, assim como todo o resto se encontra dentro dos parâmetros exigidos! Não temos culpa se imaginou um hotel 5 estrelas! Também está bem explícito no site que são seis quartos de casal para 12 pessoas, o máximo 15, usando um divã no quarto de baixo, e o sofá cama da sala assim sendo claro que para 18 pessoas se torna pequeno! Em relação às camaras sim estão colocadas em vários pontos exteriores da casa, sim dentro da nossa propriedade para segurança dos nossos clientes e para bens da casa! Pois como sabe estamos isolados da povoação vizinha por esse mesmo motivo a existência das mesmas, o que fazem um circuito de vigilância fechado,onde as imagens só saem para o exterior pela mão da polícia se necessário for, mas este circuito de câmaras está devidamente legalizado! Acho que se deveriam sentir seguros por estas mesmas existirem. Se por acaso imaginaram que estavam a ser vigiados quando lhes foi mandado retirar o carro do interior da propriedade para ser colocado devidamente no parque da casa, não estavam a ser vigiados pelas câmaras nas sim por o nosso staff que por sinal vivem na aldeia vizinha em frente à casa, por conseguinte este mesmo ser visualizado fácilmente à distância! A casa infelizmente não correspondeu pelos vistos as vossas expectativas mas mesmo assim não tendo gostado ficaram praticante 4h a mais do que supostamente deveriam, porque fizeram esse mesmo pedido a nossa funcionária! alem disso tiveram 6 pessoas a mais na casa sem terem pago nem mais um tostão por isso! Fomos assim tão péssimos para recebermos apenas 2 estrelas? Fica a minha questão!!! atentamente A gerência

The most beautiful place!!

  • 5 of 5

This House is beautiful and tidy, its has a very incredible view. The owner Manuel was very helpful, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The house is highly recommended. We visited Ponte da Misarela, cascate of pincaes and 7 lagoas which all of which are not far away from the House. The house is far away from everything and that makes it extraordinary because you can really enjoy the nature.
