Description

Solar Piedade

This beautiful villa is situated in Alfena, a town in the Municipality of Valongo, in the Porto District.

The town was a rural village until the end of the 20th century and its only 12 minutes by car to the town of Porto (17km) and 20 minutes (22 km) to the Atlantic coast.

This five-bedroom home is nestled in the town center, with 12.500 m2 of area, some buildings in the estate are dated from 1740. Until last century, the Villa used to be a much bigger farm.

The villa has been renovated over the years. The five rooms are spread across two separated houses. The 'Swimming Pool House', has two en-suite rooms on the first floor, with views of the swimming pool area and garden, and the 'Cottage House', just five meters away has three rooms, two on the first floor and one on the ground floor. This house has one full bathroom on the first floor and another, very spacious and modern full bathroom on the ground floor.

The property is ideal for large groups or more than one family,

There is Wifi in all rooms and inside areas as well as outside in the gardens. The parking is free and there are plenty of spaces available. Children's cots and high chairs are also available without any extra charge.

The property offers plenty of space for relaxation, with lots of things to do.

The villa/farm has a very kind dog and two cats that live in the villa/farm and can approach the guests to be petted, but they do not go near are allowed to enter the house.

We also have chickens, ducks, a birdhouse with many species of canaries right in front of the pool house entrance, two ponds with red fishes... Lemon trees, kiwi plants, fresh oranges, fresh vegetables growing in the farm field.

Total relaxation in Portugal

What a lovely place! Our group of six had a comfortable week long stay at Solar .Piedade. The converted convent, circa 1740, was once surrounded by enormous agricultural fields. Enough of that land still remains to give the guest a feeling of total privacy in this walled compound. The house is comfortable and very well equipped. The pool is set in a tranquil back yard, right next to the tennis court. We barbecued one night, and had a delicious dinner catered by our host family for a very reasonable price. Other nights we walked to a nearby restaurant or drove into Porto for Michelin starred gourmet meals. One huge advantage is that the property is not in downtown Porto, but a twenty minute Uber ride away. This location allows one to easily spoke out to Guimares and Braga, or the many seaside resorts, each within a thirty minute drive.”

Solar Piedade

a beautiful property in a quasi commercial area, we felt like we were on a fabulous island, and would stay there again. we had excellent access to many of the highlights of the Porto region, and with a rental car chose to travel daily. we used taxis to travel to evening dinners in Porto. the owner's staff could not have been more supportive. ”

Looks are deceiving

This is a classic old-world home on the outskirts of Porto. The home was likely a cornerstone of a regional estancia. Unfortunately, the land has been sold off and the surrounding neighborhood is no longer residential, but instead filled with light industrial related companies. The hosts were very nice to work with, but we had perhaps unrealistic expectations based on the photos and what we had read about the Porto area. ”
