We had a lovely stay at Casa da Francisca - the home is beautiful, a recently refurbished home dated back to 1896, I think. It is in the country, about half way between Trofa and Vila do Conde, which suited us perfectly, as we made it to the beach, but still spent plenty of time with family in Trofa - we were there only for the weekend. I went for a run on the country roads, through woods, and along the river, which was enjoyable. Our host were very welcoming, kindly offering to meet us at the airport, even waiting at the car rental while we got that sorted. And as it was very late at night when we arrived, we appreciated the effort. We would definitely stay here again in the future!

The house is very well decorated. Very clean with very good equipments. If you like countryside it's perfect because it's in the middle of corn fields, forests and vineyards. I loved running in the forest close to the house. The house is well located as well because the same distance to Porto, Braga and Guimaraes. If you love beaches, its' a little bit far from the beach : about 20/25 minutes by car. I definitely recommend Casa Fransisca for holidays !

What an amazing experience! Mario was so helpful with answering all my questions in the beginning. His daughter took over and welcomed us to our first European vacation. This was the most beautiful home we have ever stayed in. It was out in the country yet close enough for access to visit family and beautiful sites. It had everything we could possibly need- all the modern conveniences, yet the charm and warmth of a Portuguese home in a peaceful community. Even the neighbors made us feel at home! Daniela went above and beyond the role of a host. I can't thank her and her family enough for their kindness! Our only regrets were not having a GPS which Daniela recommended, not learning more Portuguese language and having a large rental car. A small car would have been much more appropriate for this area of the country. Do not drive a van here. Overall we had quite an adventure and would love to come back again one day!
