A group of 9 of us had amazing 5 days over the Easter period at Lucia’s house. It fits perfectly the profile of a dream house – plenty of space in all the rooms which were all nicely decorated and equipped. The lounge was cozy and the dining space has a large table that easily sits 11 people . Its garden was massive with neatly mowed lawn, dotted plantations and facilities for BBQ. Stairs in front of the house lead to the salted swimming pool which has an electric cover. Lucia was a very friendly and considerate host. We arrived famished, and there were food and drinks prepared for us. The local cheese, ham, cakes and wine were absolute delight. She showed us around where to find supermarkets and good restaurants. We had issues with hot water and transportation during our stay, Lucia had always been very responsive in helping us. Only thing to mention is that there were only two bathrooms with shower facilities in the entire house. The third one only had a bath, which is not convenient for a quick refreshment. It is located 40mins drive away from Porto city center, but it offered all the tranquility and fresh air that were missed much by us city people. Highly recommended airbnb stay!
I thank you for your message.
I would just like to correct the statement as ace bathrooms.
The house has 5 bathrooms where only one bathroom doesn't have shower.
We have 3 bathroom with shower and a bathroom with spa bath.
I ask once again apologize for the problem that arose with the hot water. The boiler was giving a problem and this time already we replace the boiler.
Thank you for your visit
Lucia welcomed us with a table laden with traditional Portuguese bread, cheese and meat. A pot of delicious soup and been prepared for our evening meal. Lucia gave us a guided tour of the village where her beautiful house is located. A very warm hostess, happy to share her lovely home.
This is a great location for visiting the beautiful Douro region and Porto.
Lucia's house is lovely and the peaceful and beautiful countryside of Ordins allows one to experience the true Porto region. The house is very large and comfortable and it was wonderful to be able to build a fire in the fireplace on the chilly evenings. If you are looking for an authentic experience in northern Portugal, this is the perfect home and Lucia couldn't be more hospitable. She was incredibly responsive to our emails and graciously met us to show us the way to the house. She also welcomed us with a basket of fruit, cheese, meat and wine.
Magnifique maison, bien située pour qui veut visiter Porto, la vallée du Douro et le nord du Portugal. Très grande maison bien équipée.
Accueil très chaleureux.
Même si près de Porto, la découverte de la région demande une voiture et les petites routes sont sinueuses, donc il est difficile de faire de grandes distances à partir d'un seul endroit...Mais pour se reposer et rejoindre la majorité des sites inréressant, la maison est un point de départ idéal.
