Only 20 minutes from the city of Oporto, " Casa do Sobreiro" was recently renovated and managed to keep the original structure and architecture, which is typical of the Douro region.
An old mill for the production of olive oil was kept intact and is certainly an interesting feature of the Casa do Sobreiro.
In the surrounding area, the focus is on the beache and a small marina with restaurants where you can enjoy the best Portuguese gastronomy.
You can also explore the Douro river cruises.
Casa do Sobreiro offers self catering accommodation for up to 8 propõe.
The house compromises:
- Four bedrooms
- extensive loung and dining area
- full equiped kitchen
- three bathrooms
- cable tv
- hifi and dvd
- swimming pool
- car park
In the garden there are sunshades and sun loungers and 2 swings located near the swimming pool.
There is also a terrace with a barbecue.
A casa deve ser limpa antes do check out. Caso os hospedes não queiram limpar antes da saída, o anfitrião poderá cobrar uma taxa de 10 euros por pessoa.
Really nice hosts and a huge house with a great view. We specially liked to enjoy our meals outside :)
The only part of the house that would get a bit too warm at night was the bedrooms upstairs but they bedrooms have Airconditionate so this is not an issue at all.
Onze vakantie in Casa do Sobreiro was fantastisch. Het perceel is afsluitbaar met een automatisch hek, en de oppervlakte daarbinnen is veel groter dan de advertenties doen vermoeden. Hetzelfde geldt voor het huis, dat echt heel erg ruim is. Met 8 personen hebben we twee weken lang genoten van de ruimte, het lekkere weer, het zwembad, het buitenzijn en de privacy. Bij aankomst was het huis netjes schoon, alles werkt, en ook de service bij vertrek was perfect. Ik zou iedereen een vakantie bij Jose en Antonio aanbevelen, en zou het zelf ook zeker nog een keer over willen doen.
Luis is very friendly and helpful, as is his mother who met us at the house. The house was even bigger than it looks like in the pictures and the pool is great! We were three familys with 3 small children and one 12 year old and 6 adults and it still felt spacious. Maybe it´s good to know that it is a bit steep and rocky road the last metres to the house.
The house was clean.
The sourrundings is very beautiful and there is a nice restaurant in walking distance and a small supermarket a bit of a walk away.
belle maison spacieuse agréable calme à 30 mn du centre de PORTO
La vue digne d'une carte postale, la vue sur le Douro est magnifique. Un intérieur spacieuse agréable. des salles de bains et des chambres climatisées super. une barbecue pour de longue soirée cool. Je reviendrais des que possible
Fantastic villa! Stayed for 3 nights, the pool, gardens and view are stunning. The house is huge and very nicely furnished. The cafe a short walk into town was great, good cheap beer! Would love to return again soon!
A great holiday retreat with absolutely marvellous views over the Douro river! Luis is a nice host, providing all useful information to help having a great holiday. The house is much bigger than on the pictures and is comfortable. Inside, the first floor was our preferred hideout, completely renovated it comprises a (second) living room, balcony and three bedrooms, all of them having the great views over the Douro river.
The house is conveniently located, about 25min from Porto and, with the new A41 highway (access about 8km from the house), trips to many other nice cities are easy (e.g. Amarante, Guimaraes...).
