The villa clearly exceeded our expectations. Its a wonderful peaceful private place part of an old mansion/chateau property, which has been beatifully maintained in both style and atmosphere. It was an inspiring and relaxing stay for us. The kids loved the pool and the tennis court. We felt like barons and baronesses for a day. Perfect location for exploring Porto, shopping at the Villa do Conde outlet or the Mar Shopping center or going further up north to Geres national park.
