4 of 5 stars Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Casa do Vau is more like a private resort than a typical villa. Besides the large, well-decorated and homey main house, which sleeps 14 (three double beds and two rooms with four bunk beds each), there is a tennis court, a large pool with changing rooms (each complete with shower, toilet and bidet), a separate and completely equipped kitchen next to the pool, two outdoor eating areas (each comfortably seating 10 to 12), a small pier, and extensive gardens in addition to the fruit farm that occupies the majority of the property. Only the largest parties would fully utilise all the space in the main house.

The property is in an idyllic, isolated hillside setting with picturesque views of the slow-moving Rio Tamega. It's rather too far for comfortable walks to the nearby village, so count on using a car for getting about. Amarante and Guimaraes, both beautiful towns with medieval centres, are within easy reach; the nicest stretch of the Douro is a little farther afield but...

After staying at Casa do Vau in 2010 we agreed to gather the family there again in 2013, and we were not disappointed. Manuel met us with the keys upon arrival and helpfully guided us around the property. We then spent most of our time outdoors at the pool or tennis court, and enjoyed fantastic al fresco dining every day.
The town of Marco de Canaveses is on a hilltop only 2km away and has all amenities including shops, good restaurants, pubs and pastelarias. It is a nice walk from town back to the villa when it is a little bit cooler in the evening.
The stone-built house has character and the entire property is situated in beautiful private surroundings with mature trees and gardens, and is a perfect retreat for families or friends to ‘get away from it all’.
