Client Reviews for O Vergel

This is one of the very best houses I have stayed in on holiday. I was actually surprised the photos on the website don't exaggerate how wonderfully furnished the house is. Caminha is very pleasantly untouched by commercialism. The generosity of cafes and restaurants and great prices make it additionally attractive. The town is v.pretty and we found it to be a great jumping off point for visits to other places in Spain as well as Portugal. The motorway to Porto is absolutely first class and we also picked up and returned family to Vigo airport pretty straightforwardly. We enjoyed cooler evenings and mornings when compared with the mediterranean coast. We are aiming to come back to lovely Verde and lovely Portugal.

We have had an incredible 1 week stay at this beautiful villa. It has been well equipped, allowing us to make the most of the beautiful local food and utilise the BBQ almost every day. The pool has been well used, a particular favourite for our 8 month old daughter. On cooler days we explored Caminha town (and picked up some delicious port); Viana do Castelo and the furnicular up to the church and Vila Praia de Ancora - fantastic beach and wonderful sea food. There is so much more we have yet to see, so hope to return again. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

Was extremely impressed with very prompt and helpful information from the company at all stages of the booking process. Instructions about the property, and how to find it were very helpful and accurate. Villa was delightful; very well appointed, and our famIly really enjoyed the pool and the table tennis. The villa is in a lovely unspoiled part of northern Portugal, and though the weather was variable, there was plenty to see and do. An excellent holiday - thank you!

Lovely villa, fantastic location and a glorious pool. The table tennis was also greatly enjoyed. Thanks for letting us stay at this wonderful house with so much character.

We have thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful fortnight here - our first visit to Portugal. The house lived up to all our expectations and its beauty was complimented by the glorious setting and peacefulness of Argela. With two teenage boys and a 6 year old daughter the poolside was a haven for many lazy days whilst the table tennis room was the venue for family competitions. We enjoyed several expeditions to Viana do Castelo, Monção, Baiona (in Spain) and of course Caminha on many occasions. But our favourite was Ponte de Lima which we drove back to for 3 visits.

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and found the villa most comfortable and well equipped. The swimming pool was well used and enjoyed by us all. We bbq'd each evening and found the shops in Caminha well stocked and the fish market excellent. There were delightful shops to look around and we found the town charming. The tourist office in the main square was most helpful. On a cooler day we visited Viana do Castelo which was also charming. We took the funicular up the hillside to a beautiful church which was having the outside cleaned. The view from the top was magnificent. We have all enjoyed this peaceful and unspoilt area of Portugal.

Such a lovely, relaxing place to stay. This villa was very well equipped and the locals are very friendly and helpful. This was our first time in North Portugal and we will certainly come back. Our children had such a great time in the pool and in the gardens, our son especially enjoyed the table tennis. Thank you once again to Vintage Travel. A great time was had by all.

As always the Vintage Travel team were very helpful with our special requests.

Beautiful traditional house. Quiet area and just the type of place we look for when we go on holiday.

House was lovely and private, garden beautifully planted and much thought gone into creating different seating areas - by pool, under shade, under house veranda etc. House was clearly well cared for and thoughtfully furnished in traditional sense. Kitchen had good range of equipment and crockery etc. Table tennis table was a god send for keeping my son occupied. Pool chairs/umbrellas etc plentiful and good quality.
