as a family of 4 we found exactly what we were looking for. spacious, easy to handle, quiet, close to beaches (and bakeries), train station and highway to Porto just around the corner. Sandro gave us some good advice, and a bicycle to get fresh bread rolls and coffee at the bar every morning. great not to have to use a car!
This house is a great size, the bedrooms are spacious and there is ample space in the 2 living rooms. The garden is a town garden, with outside seating for both relaxing and eating. There is off road parking. The beach and nearby park are easy to walk to, along with the local grocery stores. The house is equipped with an oven and three hobs, however using more than one kitchen appliance at the same time can trip the electricity, so cooking needs careful planning! Local restaurants are very good.
Sandro is an exceptional host. He met us and provided us with many useful tips. The home is spacious and comfortable. The gardens on the property are beautiful. We really enjoyed our stay.
My only complaint was that the WiFi was not working when we were there. We are a Canadian family and were dependent on WiFi during our trip. I only booked accommodations with WiFi so I was really disappointed when it was not available.
Nonetheless, we enjoyed our time in Esmoriz immensely and the beach house was spectacular.
