“We LOVED the house”

We LOVED Rui and Alexandra’s house!!! They have restored the house and surrounding garden in a beautiful way, which makes it SO easy to be there. The house has two new bathrooms, and the layout of the house works really well. The pool area is wonderful with sun and shadow spaces – and even the option to listen to your own music while at the pool. Depending on the weather you can choose to eat in the garden under the pergola, inside the house or in the old, restored ‘barn’ building, which is very bright with lots of windows/doors that open up to the garden, so you feel half inside, half outside – simply a brilliant space. We had such fun at the covered table tennis table! The location is also great with lots to do and see in the area: Douro Valley, Porto, Guimaraes and neighbouring towns and villages. Rui was super helpful and kind and provided lots of useful information and tips. We highly recommend it!

“One of the best places we have ever stayed!!!”

We do a lot of travelling and Casa de Cardido is definitely one of the best places we have ever stayed.
Rui and Alexandra have created a beautiful and tastefully furnished home and went out of their way to make our stay special. They have thought of everything including fresh rolls delivered at 7am every morning.
The garden is lovely with lots of different seating areas, a good sized pool and a ball area including basketball and volley ball.
It’s in a great location just 10 minutes from Guimares. We also visited the beautiful city of Porto, just a 40 minute drive away and did some great walks at Sistelo and the Peneda Geres National Park. Rui provided useful tips on where to visit and we made good use of those.
We wished we had booked to stay longer and hope to return one day.

Alexandra and Rui’s house is a true Airbnb experience.

Casa de Cardido is a lovely historic Portuguese farmhouse within a large beautiful terrace style garden. The property has been lovingly restored bu Rui and Alexandra, whose tasteful and thoughful decorating style and touch is displayed both inside and out. We were a family of four adults and found the house gave us plenty of space both in and out. Outside is a newly renovated quaint and beautifully restored barn to enjoy additional dining and relaxation. It was also perfect for morning pilates snd Yoga. The two bathrooms are new and the hot water plentiful, the kitchen is great for meal preparation. The house offers both heating and air-conditioning, which was appreciated given a succession of mid 30 deg days. The lovely pool was enjoyed both morning and afternoon. Casa de Cardido is the perfect base to explore the area, Guimaraes centre is a short drive and Braga 20mins on the motorway. Alexandra and Rui were wonderful hosts, we were welcomed with a delicious platter of cheese and meats plus a chilled bottle of wine, a wonderful start to our stay. Communication with Rui was excellent. I highly recommend Casa de Cardido for stay.

The garden is a dream!

We (4 adults and 3 small kids) stayed at Rui’s and Alexandra’s house for one week and we enjoyed our stay so much! Rui and Alexandra are so welcoming & friendly and they gave us perfect recommendations! The house has a traditional beautiful touch, is clean and well equipped. The garden is a dream! We spent so much time on the beautiful pool. The pool is perfect for kids because it has a shallow water zone! The barbecue area is great and there is everything you need. Rui and Alexandra installed a Dolby surround system outside, so that you can put on your own music.
We definitely recommend the house to everyone!
