A lot of space and the doq could walk every where,
And wow what a view...

We arrived at Quinta de Reciao on a Friday evening after a long drive, We proudly patted ourselves on the back for making it without a scratch on the rental car in spite of the steep (10%) and narrow roads with many U-turns (the house is 7 km from Lamego, with no lit roads after dark). We were warmly welcomed by Francisca's mother, who showed us around the quinta, and we agreed to pay the rent in full on Monday.
Much to our surprise we received a text message later that evening from Francisca in which she demanded payment in full, in cash by the next morning.
I explained to Francisca that the cash coudn't be collected on such short notice (considering the max withdrawal of 200 Euro/day from ATM). I offered a downpayment of 100 euro on Saturday morning, with the rest following on Monday morning. The response was rather rude: pay up now, or leave!
So we left the next morning and left 45 Euro on the table for the stay.

The surroundings of the cottage are beautifull, but it is very remote. The road is difficult with steep inclines and narrow passages. Not for novice drivers!
The cottage itself is very basic (it will do if you like camping). The kitchen is poorly equiped: there's no coffee machine, water cooker, or tea pot, only 3 pots for cooking, and no frying pan. You need to buy salt, pepper, sugar, tea and coffee yourself (available in Lamego). there is no tv, no dishwasher, and the shower is only adequate.

Management Response
26 Jun 2013
One year has passed since I'm renting the house and it's the first time a situation like this has happened. These customers found the house in Lonely Planet, but didn't booked it there. They searched for my phone number and decided to book by themselves. Since this happened in the day before, I gave them the option to pay at the arrival, instead of having to pay anything in advance. This was the agreement. There was a misunderstood at the arrival, but there was an agreement made at the time of the reservation and it was the same as nothing. In my entire life, I have never stayed in a place where I could stay and only had to pay when leaving or after a few days there. There was no insurance that the customers wouldn't leave without paying.

It is a country house, it is close to the city but in a more isolated area, as it is easily seen in the 20 photographs available for everyone who is interested in the property. The house has the capacity for two people, therefore there is no necessity for a dishwasher and we offer the soap. Sheets and towels are available, as we say in the description of the property. Anything else can only be available with previous notice or agreement.

Most bookings were made through "airbnb", where all the reviews can be read, whether they are good or bad.
