“Great house and views, lovely hosts”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

Our family (2 adults + 2 kids) stayed for 1 week. The house was spacious, very clean and comfortable, in a good location for day trips. The pool was lovely on the warm days and the house was cozy on the cool days. Great view of the lake, and such a peaceful location. The hosts were lovely people, and really helpful with tips on what's worth seeing in the region. We felt incredibly relaxed at the end of our week.

“A genuine escape from it all immersed in the natural beauty of the mountains”
Reviewed 26 September 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The house was perfect, spacious and built to make the very most of it's breathtaking views over the river. Nestled into the mountains, it is completely private. The pool on the terrace also had the most amazing views....floating there in the warmth of the early evening after a full day, watching the river meander and the sun dance on the water, the colours of the mountains changing with the fading light reflected on its surface, was food for the soul. The owners (Geoff and Linda) live on the land, which I believe is around 8 acres, but are entirely separate from the house....they are on hand if needed and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. We swam in the river, went on long walks through woods wonderfully perfumed by the heady scent of the local flora. We rode horses arranged for us by our hosts. We canoed (there was a canoe moored on the river and we were free to use it) in the evenings or had dinner and drank wine on the terrace and watched the sun go down....simple pleasures.. The house lit up and viewed from the river at night, is beautiful. We enjoyed the local area, visited Coimbra, Porto and some smaller towns; we spent a day on the coast around an hour away....quiet beaches and bustling towns...delightful...but always we couldn't wait to get back to our hideaway in the mountains and the beauty and tranquility waiting for us there. Our week (not long enough!) at Casa da Roda, slowly peeled away the strains and stresses of every day life, layer by layer, leaving us truly relaxed, refreshed and ready to enter once more into the fray....

“Casa da Roda – Dolce Vita in Beiras”
Reviewed 12 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

What’s new after 4 times in Casa da Roda villa ?
The house and its hosts are always friendly (and the basket of food), the swimming pool, the lake, the view – enjoy !
It's set in stunning countryside, a perfect location for walks and dips in the rivers.
Our favorite river beaches are Gois, Secarias, Benfeitas . You can find facilities café-bars and lifeguards even TV sets in trees !
Arganil tourism office gave us very good indications about points of interest around.
The Library in Arganil is a quiet and fresh place and gives a free internet service, Portuguese books and magazines to practice the language…
Thanks, Linda and Geoff.

“Perfect stay in a perfect villa.”
Reviewed 26 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Roda.   04-08-2012
We 've had two wonderful weeks. The villa was great and with the welcome pack of food and wine we felt more than welcome. We 've made some trips to Gois, Coimbra and the Atlantic coast, but most of the time we 've enjoyed staying at the villa with the beautiful riversight. Our two boys enjoyed the swimming pool very much also fishing by the river and sailing with the boat.

Thanks Geoff and Linda for your hospitality, you have made it a great holiday!

Kind regards,

“A quiet oasis with a fantastic view”
Reviewed 25 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

A beautiful villa that is very well stocked, with a fantastic welcome pack on your arrival.
There is lots of places to sit and relax in and out of the sun and being able to cool in the salt water pool. Our group aged from 79 -16 years old and we all really loved our time there.
Eating outdoors with a fantastic view and breeze, taking the rowing boat out on the lake really made our time there very special.
Lynda and Geoff were very helpful with information and advice about the local area.
