Client Reviews for Casa do Bosque

We have had an absolutely wonderful fortnight in Casa do Bosque. The villa is perfect, with everything we needed and lovely cool bedrooms at night. The gardens and pool make this property perfect though. Our boys (aged 8 and 13) loved the pool and spent hours playing in there and practising their strokes. We visited Afife (stunning in the sea mist but too rough for the boys to swim). Ponte de Lima is a lovely small town to wander around, with an interesting Roman history that our boys enjoyed. Viana do Castelo is a larger town, overlooked by the Basilica de Santa Luzia - well worth a trip to see the stunning views and beautiful church. All in all a truly fabulous holiday. Thank you to Maria and Manuel for your kindness and warmth.

We had wonderful weather for our week here and could easily have spent all our time relaxing in the wonderful garden by the lovely pool. Ponte de Lima is a little gem, with great walks along the river and the Monday market. There are also some good swimming spots all along the river. Hiring a canoe from Clube Nautical by the modern bridge is another interesting way to see the town, but can be hard work if the the current and wind are both against you! The International Garden Festival is worth a look. Viana do Castelo is an easy day trip on the motorway. The Gil Eannes hospital ship museum is a fascinating insight into Portugal's maritime history. Thank you for a lovely week.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, our first ever visit to Portugal and what a great region to begin! Highlights were Porto, GuimarĂ£es & Barcelos. Additionally we have enjoyed cycling and kayaking along the Lima and Afife beach. We even made it to the thermal spa at Geves and indeed the national park is beautiful. Thank you Maria and Manuel for your warmth and marvellous villa.

Thank you, we have had a wonderful time at your villa. we had everything we needed. The pool and surrounding gardens were beautiful. We visited many interesting places including Ponte de Lima, Guimaraes and Valenca. We enjoyed visiting Ponte de Lima several times and enjoyed many meals in the restaurants. Thank you very much Maria and Manuel for all your help and advice.

No other than to say I am very pleased to have found your company and will be booking with you again providing you have villas in the area we intend to travel to.

Thank you Manuel and Maria for a lovely holiday. The location is beautiful and the house has everything that is required. Anna keeps everything very clean and tidy. We travelled as far as the Douro Valley, Porto, Afife and the national park but as the days got hotter we spent more time lounging and relaxing. We had a great time.

Beautiful villa - very relaxing holiday. Booking was straightforward and the travel pack was very useful and helpful. Thank you.

We have had a very relaxing week - sunny almost every day although cool at night. Beaches of Afife and Ancora beautiful and almost empty out of season.

We have spent many villa holidays in France, Spain and Portugal and this was the best! Beautiful pool and garden, comfortable beds and well equipped house, Perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Thank you Maria and Manuel for your hospitality.

Really good property with an unusual architectural twist and very helpful hosts. Lovely 12m pool large enough for proper swimming. Lots to do in the area and also worth taking your bike for challenging road and MTB routes.
