After staying at Casa do Vau in 2010 we agreed to gather the family there again in 2013, and we were not disappointed. Manuel met us with the keys upon arrival and helpfully guided us around the property. We then spent most of our time outdoors at the pool or tennis court, and enjoyed fantastic al fresco dining every day.
The town of Marco de Canaveses is on a hilltop only 2km away and has all amenities including shops, good restaurants, pubs and pastelarias. It is a nice walk from town back to the villa when it is a little bit cooler in the evening.
The stone-built house has character and the entire property is situated in beautiful private surroundings with mature trees and gardens, and is a perfect retreat for families or friends to ‘get away from it all’. Plus
