Perfect place - fantastic house and garden.

  • 5 of 5

We just had 5 days in Casa Da Pousada. The apartment for 4 persons was well equiped, clean and everything new. The garden and pool area is so nice. Our host gave us a warm welcome and a lot of usefull informations about the place and the region.

Perfect area to stay in and to make day trips in the region. I would for sure come back if we should visit the beautiful Northern part of Portugal - like staying at a 5 star hotel just much more cosy and peaceful 😊

Fim de semana inesquecível

  • 5 of 5

A simpatia, disponibilidade e atenção demonstrada aliada à casa fantástica, e em concreto ao apartamento "A Adega", contribuíram para que o fim-de-semana fosse perfeito! A cereja no topo do "bolo" foi a piscina aquecida... não esquecendo os bolos caseiros ao pequeno almoço (o de noz e limão...delicioso)!!!! Altamente recomendado e para repetir. Muito obrigado André, Diogo e Sr. Pedro
