Peace & Tranquility
Excellent escape from the daily hustle and bustle. Superb rural surroundings away from the usual tourist trails. Everything for your stay is provided (even things you did not know you needed). Very good pack with all the information you are likely to need. The superb weather during our stay meant we spent most of our time out doors, dining, swimming and relaxing in the lovely spacious gardens. The location means a car is essential to appreciate the surrounding area, Margaret and Alex do all they can to ensure you enjoy your holiday.
We have lots more to see and do in the area and hope to return with friends.
It was great to meet you and so glad you enjoyed the farm as much as we do. Looking forward to welcoming you back again, as you say, so much to do and see.
We stayed for 2 weeks in Lagar Cottage and we absolutely loved it. It's a great property, exceptionally well equipped, with a lovely garden and pool set in beautiful countryside. Perfect for some peace and quiet and relaxation.
Thanks Mikka. We loved meeting you both and hope you enjoyed watching Porto play in their new Dragon Stadium. Well done for picking up the tickets without getting lost! We do try to support our visitors if they have anything special on their wish list and we were really happy to help you see the game.
Looking forward to seeing you again sometime, maybe for more football! A and M.
short-time noticed getaway in portugal
seeking a nice place to stay in portugal on short time notice we found that very cosy, nice located "farmhouse" with a very well equiped kitchen and everything you could wish for. the sight was overwhelming and the pool in superb conditions. we were travelling with our 11month old daughter - she loved it. it was just charming, old steps, fireplace, two very cosy bedroums and even we were given a crip for our babygirl. all in all very rural but with comfort. next town is more or less easy to find (more dificult was the way back - seems like nobody knows "portal do pedro"). car is necesary! the owners left manuals for everything, maps and prescriptions for visiting-worth places in a folder - everything in english. we'll try to come back!
We really enjoyed meeting you both and your delightful baby daughter. Galicia and Minho being adjacent provinces make for quick and easy weekend visits and we would very much like to see more Spanish visitors come to our property. We, ourselves, often go over to Spain for a weekend. Hope to see you all back here again soon, maybe with some friends for the other cottage.
Relaxing and Charming
Lagar cottage and the surrounding property is the perfect place for a relaxing summer unwind!
We were only able to spend 4 nights at the cottage and because of the short stay did not feel that we needed to go out and about too much, in fact apart from the odd trip to Ponte de Lima for golf and food supply's we pretty much stayed put.
The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable, even with 4 adults in it and thanks to the fabulous weather that we experienced we were hardly inside. The table under the grape vines was where all meals were eaten and most days were spent lounging by the pool.
The views of the country side were beautiful and there was constant peace.
We will definitely be coming again, have already been recommending it to friends and would like to bring some along next time.
Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Margaret and Alex however Sylvia was available for anything that we needed.
Thanks again for sharing your delightful cottage with us!
We are so glad that you enjoyed your holiday but very sorry that we were unable to meet you this time. One of the perks for us is meeting our visitors and making sure everything is just as they like it. As you so correctly say, the cottage is ideal for relaxing and lounging even in the winter but there is plenty to do and see if one is feeling energetic.
Many thanks for your kind words and we look forward to meeting you one of these days.
Sítio lindíssimo, tranquilo, com todas as comodidades. Para descansar sem pressas.
