“Perfect Apartment with Beautiful View”
Reviewed 26 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This apartment is in a good location with patio doors leading out to a balcony with beautiful views overlooking the river. There is a walkway opposite the apartment which follows the river to the beach with lots of wildlife and beautiful scenery. The beach is long with golden sands and there are walkways all along the dunes.

The apartment is very light and spacious, very clean and very well appointed with comfortable furniture and an extremely comfortable bed. Ruth, the owner was very helpful and could be contacted if there was a problem.

There are local restaurants in the village which can be walked to and where the food is very good.

We had a lovely holiday and would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Casa de Rio is a beautiful,well-equipped first floor apartment in Ofir, across the river from Esposende on the North Portugal coast. It is spacious, beautifully decorated,and very well furnished with all the crockery etc you could want. Fridge, freezer, espresso machine, washing machine, dish washer, TV,dvd , and the best wifi we've had for ages. Two bathrooms and showers compliment the three bedrooms.
The situation is wonderful: a short walk to the amazing beaches of the Ofir Peninsula, and overlooking a nature conservation area full of bird life, and the river with the delightful town of Esposende on the far bank. The tiny town of Fao is across the road,with major supermarkets only a short drive away. Loads of great places to eat and drink.
The owner Ruth was wonderfully helpful, friendly, and generous; she lives nearby so is on hand, and is fluent in German, English and Portuguese, so able to tackle any query. Her excellent directions made it exceptionally easy to find, and there is ample parking.
We had a fabulous week or so, and will certainly return, as it was delightful, and very good value.

I travelled with my husband and two children (5 and 9) for a long weekend and this was an excellent apartament to stay in. The apartment is very cosy, spacious and the kitchen has all the necessary equipment. The view to the River Cávado estuary is beautiful and it is possible to see an enormous variety of birds. Reasonable walking distance to the beach, very nice even in the Winter. The building has a front lawn for the children to play.
