I have lived in Northern Portugal before for 3 years. Decided I wanted to go back and so booked a room in this house as a base while I looked for somewhere permanent to rent. House is modern, very clean and with all mod cons. Eduarda and João are perfect hosts, extremely pleasant and helpful. They speak limited English and despite my living in a Portuguese area before, where few spoke English, my Portuguese is still not very good. However, their daughter Cláudia lives and works in England and speaks perfect English. Cláudia was so helpful both before and during my stay. She answers texts, emails etc almost immediately and will help and translate tirelessly. Mêda is nothing special. OK it's a small clean town but there's little there. It is however, perfectly placed to explore this beautiful and historic region. I found its location perfect. I also found the tourist office in nearby Transcoso (located in the castle itself) most helpful. There's a South African lady who works there who has lived in Portugal for 17 years. She is great fun and incredibly helpful. If Eduarda and João offer you their home made wine you are in for a treat - fantástico. All in all, 'uma experiência fantástica'.
The hostess was very friendly and went out of her way to make us feel at home. She even let us try some of her homemade wine (which was wonderful!) and gave helpful travel advice. The scenery was stunning and convenient for traveling to sights in the surrounding area. Would highly recommend staying here!
Had a great experience during our stay in here. The host is very friendly and helpful with supplies and providing touristic advices. The house is nice and clean, decent size. Would definitely visit again when next there!
