If you like nature then this is the right place. An old stone house refurbished with modern yet cosy style. Closed to Serra d’Arga (mountain) and Ancora River passing along the house making a beautiful natural pool with crystal clear water.
The connection of the house to the river makes this place unique. There is a trail straight from the doorstep that allows you to go hiking to the closeby mountains. Also about 30 min walk, you can find the “Pincho” waterfalls where you can spend the day bathing and sunbathing. If you are a beach lover, you can reach the shore by car within 15 minutes.
The guests will have full access to the house. There is no internet or TV connection but you can watch like the "old times" one of the DVD's from our collection. There is also a sound system where you can play CD’s or connect your mobile devices via mini Jack cable.

Other Things to Note
I speak fluently German.
Uma casa bem equipada num lugar tranquilo e acolhedor. Fomos no pico do Inverno e foi muito confortável. O Rui e a Rosalie foram muito atenciosos e prestáveis. Temos de repetir a experiência mas com sabor a Verão.
We spent here the most relaxing and wonderful days, in a sunny week of October. The former windmill has been restored in a charming way, and posses everything you need to. We highly recommend it, also if you have children (we were there with out two little ones). The surrounding offer much to explore. Rosali and Rui are the perfect hosts.
Rui and Rosalie were great hosts and really did everything to make our stay as comfortable as possible. They were very helpful and provided great tips on where to eat, shop, and what to see in the area. The cottage is very charming, fully equipped and in a great spot next to a small stream and an old Roman bridge, perfect for a quiet get-away.
Wir hatten einen super schönen und erholsamen Urlaub. Das Haus von Rui ist sehr zu empfehlen. Alles entspricht den Bilder und alles ist sehr sauber. Rui ist sehr sehr hilfsbereit und ein super Gastgeber!! Der Wasserfall in unmittelbarer Nähe ist ein kleines Paradies. Ich würde immer wieder kommen!!
Die Bilder entsprachen exakt dem, was vor Ort vorzufinden war. Eine sehr schöne, idyllische Landschaft, in der man einfach nur relaxen und die Ruhe genießen konnte. Das Haus war sehr sauber und tip top ausgestattet. Es hat an nichts gefehlt. Es lässt sich super kochen dort! Rui hat uns sehr herzlich empfangen und uns Tipps gegeben, was man in der Umgebung alles sehen/erleben kann. Er war immer erreichbar, sofern man eine Frage hatte. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und wären gerne noch länger geblieben.
Rui warmly welcomed us and was very willing & helpful with any questions we had and offered some some great local knowledge of places to eat or visit. Rui has thoughtfully provided the little things to ensure a pleasant stay.
The cottage is in such a picturesque, peaceful location and a short drive into 3 towns on the coast with all the amenities you might need on a short or longer stay.
We found Casa do Rio a perfect place to unwind away from it all. We hope to be back to stay again someday soon.
