“Set in the wilds of the hills, this property is superbly located for a quite break in Northern Portugal. Although it looks like you are isolated from other properties, because you are perched on a steep hill-side, surrounding properties are hidden from view. The apartment was well laid out with space to move. Furnishings and bedding was all to a high standard. My two hosts Stephan and Marcel where very welcoming and where able to give much information and suggestions for activities in the area. I was able to get out to Porto, the beach at Viana do Castelo and into the National Park. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Lindo in Quinta Olivia, It would be great to see the area in the Spring as well.”

It is an awesome location for photographers, wildlife bit shy but still a lot of good possibilities to capture some stunning nature shots. We had a great enjoyable time. Worth to come back!

“Description of the cottage was clear, but I can imagine that there are people who do not believe. We had ourselves some other evidence, indicated, eg the hotel on the right, or pillars, we have lost a number of times, but after a day or two you will have to by.The soon was really worth it and we think ourselves we next year, absolutely again with Stefan and Marcel will book.”
Mr R van Bree  (11/8-2015)
“The house looks luxurious and well cared for. The living room and kitchen is spacious, the bedroom is large enough and tidy and the shower room is modern and fresh. Downstairs you can sit on your private spot in the garden to enjoy the view. The pool is nice and even there the view is beautiful. Stefan and Marcel receive their guests in a welcoming way. From this house you soon in Peneda-Geres to beautiful walks there. Cities like Braga, Guimarães, Viano da Castelo on the coast and eventually Porto are close. We had a wonderful holiday here.”

“We took 15 days of sun in a rural relaxing and we did, "of excellent ຜ to open within 80km.”
Ms Wine Verhoeven  (25/8-2014)
“A week Lindo was very worthwhile. We have had a very good time. The owners Stephan and Marcel are very nice hosts and Stephan is the best pizza maker in the world (according to Marcel -)). We have therefore greatly enjoyed these crunchy delicacy and variants tasted that we did not know. The house is spacious, clean and the shower was fantastic! Small downside were the dining table and matching chairs, but the chairs were again excellent! A wall decoration near the stairs the house would perfect in terms of decor, but that has nothing to do with the comfort of the house making. Pool Puik okay. All in all, highly recommended and an address to come back to keren.Jan and Wine”
Mr Alain Smolders  (7/8-2014)

House description

About the area

About Portugal

Portugal is a small country, but the differences between each region are large.

In the north, the country shows its most original side, and the beautiful city of Porto is to be discovered. The famous port wine comes from this area. That's why many holiday homes in northern Portugal are near vineyards and port wine cellars. New at Belvilla: Portugal Apartments in Porto, the second largest city in Portugal. From your Portugal apartment, enjoy the view of Porto harbor, explore the beautiful old town or take a trip to the picturesque surrounding fishing villages that Portugal is so famous for. Also around Porto there are very beautiful beaches, on some you can even observe wild flamingos.
