nous avons passé un séjour de 6j très agréable, la météo etait là mais en plus la maison est très bien équipée jusqu'au moindre accessoire de cuisine. le jardin et la vue de la maison sont magnifique. La piscine profonde de 1m40, c'est exactement ce qu'il faut pour se baigner et que les enfants puissent vraiment en profiter en toute sécurité. Une climatisation dans chaque pièce, une bonne literie dans chaque chambre sauf dans celle de lits jumeaux qui est un peu moins confortable mais rien de bien grave. La suite est génial. Bref, je recommande vivement car les prestations et l'accueil des propriétaires est à la hauteur de ce que l'on peut attendre d'un bon séjour!!
Encore merci à antonio et sa femme pour leur accueil et leur disponibilité
Merci beaucoup pour votre gentil commentaire.
Beautiful setting and very private
A clean, modern and well equipped property in a beautiful location. The location of the pool is unconventional which might be a problem for families with small children because if they are in the pool they are invisible from the villa. However, the planting around the pool is very attractively landscaped with great views. The short drive up a steep narrow road could prove a problem for less confident drivers. Gerês is a nice village to mooch around with some shops, bakery, butcher, supermarkets, restaurants, etc. There is a park with a small boating lake. Travellers need to be aware how long it takes to drive anywhere because the the roads are so steep and winding. We didn’t want to drive more than 40 minutes in each direction every day so actually very few places are accessible in that time. Highlights for us were Bom Jesus near Braga and Portem da Homem and Sao Bento. When you are driving around there are multiple places you can stop and admire the amazing views down into the valley. Overall a great holiday.
A lovely property. the main bedroom is gorgeous but the three smaller bedrooms and bathroom are dated and need revamping with more bathroom facility upstairs to these rooms. one bathroom for three double bedrooms is not enough.
Good getaway location but Geres is quite dull
We had a very enjoyable week at the house with the family. Geres is quite dull - the shops are basic and the restaurants poor - the countryside up the hill is spectacular and swimming in the reservoir was wonderful. It's not really a base to explore as the last part of the route to Geres is quite slow.
The house sort of works although the pool feels to be in the wrong place. There is no air con so the three bedrooms (which are quite small) get very warm.
It was very peaceful until the local public pool start blasting music on Saturday and Sunday throughout most of the day.
The owners were helpful and very responsive.
Heerlijk huis, rustig gelegen met dorp op loopafstand
Schone, prima verzorgde, ruime woning met prachtig zwembad. Keuken goed uitgerust. Omgeving vrij toeristisch maar prachtig: heerlijk kunnen wielrennen en wandelen.
Great holiday with many possibilities to enjoy the country
We (family of 4 with two sons, aged 17 and 15 from Germany) stayed for two weeks at the end of July / beginning of August. The house is very nice and invites on the one hand to spend time here, but on the other hand is an ideal starting point for a variety of activities. In the Peneda National Park we hiked some very varied trails (the app Wikiloc has saved some good routes here, otherwise there are good suggestions on the website or in the tourist office). We have also made trips to Braga, Guimarães, Porto, Santa Cruz, the coast and the Douro Valley.
The house is very well equipped and even the kids were happy with the WiFi :-). The pool is large and offers beautiful views. Gerês offers several restaurants where you can eat at very reasonable prices. If you do without the car, you have will loose the calories as quickly as you eat them, because the way to the house is not long but quite steep. The morning walk to the bakery replaced in any case the jogging. But the house offers a great view, where you can enjoy the evenings with a good glass of port wine in absolute peace.
Two highlights around the topic of port wine:
- Lunch at Graham's Port Lodge in Porto with a fantastic view of Porto. If you want to avoid the not quite cheap food you can just enjoy a glass of port wine on the terrace.
- In the Douro Valley, we visited the Sandeman Winery (Quinta de Seixo), with a magnificent view over the vineyards.
Overall, a great holiday for each of us had something to offer, in a beautiful house with very nice hosts. Highly recommended, as long as you are not aiming for the classic beach holiday, but a healthy mix of activities and chill out at the pool.
Thank you very much for your sympathetic comment.
we will all do to continue to deserve such praise.
