We really loved staying in Jorge and Vanessa's beautiful, architect-designed house with its stunning views and peaceful setting. It was wonderful to wake up and see the valley every morning and listen to the sound of the sheep bells, chickens and occasional church bells. The splash pool and terraces are perfect when combined with the setting and we truly relaxed over the few days we were there. We made use of the barbecue and enjoyed fresh figs and oranges picked from the local trees for breakfast. Vanessa also supplied us with some bread and jam on arrival which was very much appreciated. We also had some lovely food at two different restaurants in Soaje, up the valley, including deliciously tender local beef. We also enjoyed a relaxed evening stroll along the river valley up to the roman bridge and had a day trip to Ponte de Lima which is definitely worth a visit. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend Ermelo and would love to go back for another visit soon!
This was a late booking for a last family holiday together after 'A' level exams were over and proved to be both relaxing and at a fantastic location. We were fortunate to attend during the village saints festival with pilgrims from across the globe visiting the monastery all visible from the apartment feature windows adding a historic slant to the visit. Other pursuits to fill your time would be hiking, cycling in the huge national park area or just an evening walk along the river bank admiring lemons and oranges hanging from the trees. Plenty of choice of restaurants in the next village of Soajo or just eat at the premises. Thanks Jorge and Vanessa for being great hosts and sharing your property.
Situated in a quiet, residential neighborhood, this modern, luxurious townhouse-style property is the best of old and new and is a perfect location for exploring the park and enjoying the nearby river walks. The place was very clean, nicely appointed with a well-equipped kitchen and a barbecue. Comfortable bedrooms on the main and lower level also make it very suitable for two couples and if you arrive by car, you’ll also appreciate the private parking right in front. The outside terrace and pool areas are perfect for relaxing and enjoying panoramic vistas of the river, the town and the mountains. Jorge and Vanessa are extremely insightful and attentive hosts that make a huge effort to ensure your needs are met down to the finest detail. Communication was perfect and we wish we could have stayed longer. If you’re looking for some luxurious living at a very reasonable price, this is the perfect place for you.
The house is amazing and the view is spectacular. The location is away from it all and very relaxing. The decks were wonderful. The beds are very comfortable and the house is very clean. Vanessa and Jorge were very helpful and great hosts. We would love to come and visit again.
This place was so amazing, we extended our stay right away. The beautiful well-designed house facing the idyllic village, medieval Mone start and the river is absolutely amazing and can be enjoyed from the tasteful living room or large roof terrace. Far away from busy commercial cities we enjoyed the goats, river walk, river swim and touring the national park. Highly recommended! Great that you can still find these hidden gems.
Jorge was a great host. Even though we reached late Jorge and his wife were there to make sure we were settled in and had the fireplace running. Their home was set in the magical medieval village of Ermelo but the house itself is newly renovated and with modern interiors and appliances. Jorge was very warm and friendly and gave good tips about what to see in the area. Strongly recommend staying here if you want some piece and quiet and love nature. The walking path through the village and along the river to the Roman bridge is really beautiful.
