“Wonderful villa”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wonderful holiday rental with gorgeous panoramic views over barcelos. Very clean, spacious, quirky villa. Abundant supply of catering equipment, cutlery, crockery etc. Soaps, indoor and outdoor towels supplied and property cleaned and linen changed each week. We made great use of the swimming pool and tennis court. We also enjoyed the large range of outdoor furniture supplied on each terrace. Gardens were beautiful and well maintained. Lovely walks off the main road. Went to nearby café and butcher which we can thoroughly recommend and also walked down to large café and restaurant near stadium. Barcelos is a wonderful mix of historic buildings with lovely cafes, shops and gardens. We visited Porto (by train) and also went to picturesque Ponte de Lima (some of our party walked!)., Guimares (world heritage site), Eposende by the sea and Vila de Campostela. A visit to Bom Jesus near Braga also highly recommended. Roads and motorways easy to negotiate. All in all Casa do monte was a great base, very roomy and comfortable for 4 couples and 3 young adults. A car was necessary if you want to sightsee.

“quirky retreat”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Wonderful quirky old house ,loads of character ,plenty of space indoors and outdoors .
Very clean swimming pool and first class tennis court .
There is a coffee shop selling fresh bread and an excellent butchers ten minutes walk away and a very pleasant restaurant within twenty minutes walk - steaks that melt in your mouth !
The house is equipped with essentials second to none - literally dozens of glasses , plates , etc . ,hairdryers in every room and towels galore .
I would recommend this place to anyone ,provided you are looking for somewhere with a bit of character.
A car would be recommended as it is about 4 km from the nearest town and supermarket.
