To say we had an great time is an understatement. If your looking for a beautiful oasis to relax in and to get away from the day to day stress this is a great option. We were a group of 8 with 2 seniors, 2 middle aged, 2 twenty somethings, and 2 children and all 8 had an amazing time. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and had all the emenites needed, a large kitchen and living room when we all wanted to be together and eat, cook, watch TV or chat, but when you wanted quiet time alone each bedroom was a nice getaway. The pool is beautiful and all ages enjoyed it, but certainly the children's screams of excitement were heard as they ran around (apologies to the hosts if they could be heard). The hosts provide bath towels, linens and even pool towels, my husband is the cook in the family and he found everything he needed for cooking indoors as well as outdoors on the griller. At night we slept with the windows and skylights open for an amazing cool breeze even on hot days. The views are spectacular of both the mountains and of the stars at night. The drive up the driveway to the house can be a challenge for an inexperienced driver or a car with a low clearing so keep that in mind, rent a car with a high clearing, but the host was extremely helpful with getting us to the top and bottom with loaded vehicles full of people and luggage. The small town at the bottom near the river has a lovely little grocery, cafe and butcher. If your looking for a night of no cooking and rather dine out there are 2 restaurants within 5-10 minutes, one in the hotel near the grocer (for fine dining) and one set aside down an incline before the small town (of coming from the house) for more casual setting. The hosts were close enough if we needed anything but not intrusive at all. We certainly will be back and plan to have more family vacations like this one and next time longer than 4-5 nights. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us.
Quinta S. Pedro was a lovely property, well equipped, clean and spacious. We enjoyed the large pool and the panoramic view of fields and hills from the balcony around it. Pedro's Mum, Maria, who was staying next door, was really friendly and helpful. We had great chats about life in Portugal and in Scotland and we learnt how to pronounce some of the Portuguese words we might need around town. The smell of lemons and other fruits grown on the land around the property was wonderful and Maria shared some of the produce with us. A very memorable holiday. Our son, aged 8 at the time, still talks about it 3 years on!! We would recommend the food at the '3 Pipos' (3 Barrels) restaurant in Tonda.
