“Step out of the Rat Race”
Reviewed 14 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here with my husband and son. WOW - Fabulous house in a truly rural location. A Car is essential. Anita and Mark the owners are very warm and friendly, they have really embraced Portugal and its culture. Their knowledge and enthusiasm for the area they live in is truly captivating and infectious. The house is spotlessly clean, my son slept on the couch and said it was really comfortable. There is plenty of information available in the house to explore and go walking in the area, and very good recommendations for restaurants. We spent a couple of lovely evenings with them which added to our holiday. The river beaches are fantastic and are set in beautiful scenic locations. If you need to get away from everything to unwind and chill, I cannot recommend this location the hosts and surrounding beauty enough. Go and explore you will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic Christmas welcome from Anita and Mark”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed here last Christmas as their first booking at this time of year. We were given a fantastic welcome by Anita and Mark complete with a real Christmas tree and decorations all ready for us. They looked after us for the whole stay and could not have been more helpful we were very comfortable in the little house and they gave us extra heaters as it can be a bit chilly at this time of year.

“Peaceful haven”
Reviewed 6 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Casa Abrunheiro whilst buying our place in central Portugal. If we were in any doubt as to buy or not, they were all washed away during our stay. The Casa, location, views and tips from Anita and Mark confirmed we had made the right decision.

“Fantastic...”
Reviewed 3 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We visited casa abrunheiro in February this year.. We got there at 1am , as we had a late flight .mark and Anita were up waiting to meet and greet us..they had an open fire burning and our villa was nice and cosy .. The villa was spotless, as we went self catering and being a chef I found the kitchen kitted out with all good equipment for a self catering holiday .. With a non stick pan( very rare ) . We went to central Portugal to look at some land out of curiosity really .. And Mark and Anita were a great help in advising us in the village life that they now we're a part of . They are a great example to others who would like to live abroad , the village is peaceful and beautiful the views are stunning .. Can't fault portugal or the people we met .. Was a perfect week from start to finish .. Can't wait to go again

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Mark and Anita are the perfect hosts - kind, friendly and helpful. The property is immaculately clean and ideal for finding some peace and tranquility. That doesn't mean you're stuck in the middle of nowhere as there's plenty to do and see it the locality. Basically, it is what you see in the pics. We were very happy there. A car is a must.

“Everything we were hoping for and more...”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The cottage was exactly as advertised: well equipped, beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. We were looking for a quiet get-away off the beaten track but within striking distance of some authentic Portuguese attractions. We couldn't have fallen luckier. Our Portuguese and English speaking hosts were a wealth of local knowledge and guided us towards the best local fare and produce, amazingly beautiful scenery and some great traditional entertainment. All in all this made for a great value, enchanting, relaxing holiday. We came home completely refreshed and can't wait to visit again. Highly recommended...

“A holiday to remember”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

On our arrival we were met by our hosts Anita and Mark, they made us feel very welcome, and from the very first day we enjoyed their company. They are there if you need them, and not if you don't. They have a great knowledge of the area, and their knowledge of the language was a help. The accommodation was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Our only regret is the weather didn't allow us to light the log fire. The stunning views made this a tranquil and enjoyable holiday.
