We stayed at Quinta da Varzea de Cima in August. It is a superb property which the website pictures don't do justice to. There is tons of space, all the rooms and kitchens are well equipped and outside is spacious and very private. The changing rooms for the pool were better than some apartments I have stayed in. Has 6 bedrooms so excellent for large parties. The only negative is that the entrance to 4 bedrooms are outside the house due to the layout so if you have small kids in a group, bear that in mind. No problems if all couples or older kids though. 4km to town centre that has taxis if needed.

Our group spent a week at Quinta da Varzea de Cima at the end of August. The villa itself is truly amazing - words cannot do it justice. The owner and family were also incredible; friendly and so accommodating. Nothing seemed too much trouble and even our non-existent Portuguese language skills did not cause too much of a problem. The villa is huge and well equipped. We were able choose to eat in a dining room appropriate to our "mood". The pool area is also superb - with separate changing facilities that would rival some leisure centres! The villa was easy to reach from Porto airport (approximately 75 minutes) and the closest town was around 5 kilometres away with good supermarket (Intermarche). A car (or taxi) would be required given the hilly nature of the area. I have only good things to say of the whole experience with Portugal Villas and the property and owners. I would most definitely recommend their thorough and professional services.
