House and surroundings
The estate to which Casa dos Pinheiros belongs is set in a rural area near the village of Medelo. The cottage is tastefully restored and furnished, partly with antique family furniture. Despite the seemingly modest size it offers ample space for 4 people.
The cottage is located on a part of the estate entirely reserved for the guests. You have your own entrance and parking, and the sole use of the tennis court and a generously sized pool, a large lawn and beautiful well-kept gardens.
In the region north-east of Medelo are good possibilities for walking. There are several marked trails, for instance along the shores of the small reservoir of Queimadela and through small old villages where time stood still or so it seems.
The provincial town of Fafe is about 4 km away. There you will find a couple of large supermarkets, and all kinds of shops, cafés, pastelarias and restaurants. Furthermore there are banks, a post office, a health care centre and a large weekly market. Just south of Fafe is a 9-hole golf course.
The distance to Guimarães (Unesco World Heritage) is 15 km and to the Peneda-Gerês national park 40 km.

The day of your arrival
On the day of your arrival we or the owner will be at the property at the time you agreed upon. If you expect to arrive later, for instance because your flight is delayed, please let us know as soon as possible.
If we ourselves cannot be at the property on the day or time of your arrival, we will try to come by one of the following days. Of course you won’t need to stay in, waiting for us, so if we don’t meet and you do have questions, don’t hesitate to call us.

Afterwards: your opinion?
It is your holiday, so we won’t bother you with a long questionnaire. But we would greatly appreciate if you could send us an e-mail afterwards, telling us what you thought of the organization and the property.
