Vintage Travel

Client Reviews for Casa Picolino


Great, well-equipped villa with everything you need and more. Lovely pool area. Friendly, helpful owner. Our week here just flew by.

This has been our first foreign holiday as a family of four and I couldn't recommend your company enough. It was a bit of a step into the unknown for us but you made it such a positive experience - many thanks! Every single property on the website looked amazing. Our chosen villa was all we had hoped for...and more. We were very impressed by the personal service - 'phone calls, support when we ran into difficulties with booking car hire etc. The purple Vintage travel pack was unexpected but a complete boon and the maps and directions to the property were both faultless as was the Northern Portugal travel guide. I doubt I will be looking anywhere else for our next foreign holiday and will recommend your company wholeheartedly - we have many friends who before we even flew out were impressed at the service you provided. As an aside, the villa owner had nothing but praise for you also - she was very proud of the fact that you visit the property at least once a year and work closely with her to make the holiday the best it can be. Thank you once again!

Dear Maria & Manuel. Thank you for making us feel so welcome and for making our holiday so relaxing. This is our first time to Northern Portugal but it certainly won’t be our last. We especially enjoyed our trips to Porto, Ponte de Lima and Viana but the whole area is beautiful. In Moledo, Gaivota is definitely the best restaurant. We recommend the duck with rice and the ice cream cake. Our favourite beach was Foz do Minho at Caminha. Valença is definitely worth visiting on market day (Wednesday) and the old walled city is beautiful. We also visited Barcelos market on Thursday and took in Ponte de Lima on the way home. The market at Barcelos is huge and Ponte de Lima was beautiful – take your bathers as the river is very welcome on a hot day. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
The Coombe Family


Enjoyed our first time in Northern Portugal. Thank you for your welcome. Highlights: Walking in National Park from Soajo, beaches (though windy at times!), Camarão restaurant in Gelfa – location, location, location! and good, simple but tasty food – fresh fish & meat grills, coffee and cake – anywhere!

Thank you once again for providing us with a wonderful holiday.
Mrs C Hazeldine


Thank you for another excellent holiday - we will certainly travel with you again soon.
Mr N Banks


We have never had a villa with a pool before and were blown away by Casa Picolino. The house is beautifully decorated while being comfortable. ie we were not worried that we would break something every time we moved. Only comment I have is that Moledo does not have a vibrant beach scene, well not according to our teenagers, however Northern Portugal is a fascinating place to visit. Beware the horrible local dish of breaded cod! Thanks for a great holiday
Mrs J Cantillon


Thank you for all your help and kindness during our stay in your lovely home and beautiful surrounding gardens. Everything we needed was provided and made our stay very pleasant.
Mr & Mrs Bennett


The house is super and our hosts very friendly and hospitable. Highlights: Beaches (Afife in particular) I don't remember being on anywhere better, eating fish, trip to Ponte de Lima, the Metro to Porto, eating pastries and drinking coffee in Caminha..
