“Journey to myself”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2014

Eunice and the property was great! Yavanna is the best place ever to relax! Just hanging around, read, swin or do trips to the river Minho or Caminho Portugues.

“A perfect, relaxing and fun week away in paradise”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2014

The best thing about Yavanna is how relaxing it is. The gardens, the pool, the rooms and the service are all so lovely. I could've easily stayed there all week. I came back feeling rested and refreshed and I would highly recommend staying there; whether you want to explore or just chill out. It's perfect!

“A relaxed stay in a nice house with a magnificent garden and pool”

Dear Eunice, We enjoyed very much our stay at Yavanna. We immediately felt at home in casa Dolinda. Everything was very clean and the accomodation was very practical and cosy. We appreciated very much the covered terrace and every breakfast was a real pleasure there. We loved your gorgeous garden and the pool area is really beautifull. We like very much your ceramics, Eunice. We bought some, but regret that we came by plane, so we could'nt take more of them. Congratulations with your work! We still have a lot to do and to see in the nord of Portugal...but now we have a superb adress to come back and to recomend to our friends! Kind greatings, Daniel and Marie-France ( Belgium)

“The perfect place to retreat, recharge and soak up the sun”

Reviewed 23 Sep 2014

Myself and three friends stayed at Yavanna last July 2014, having stayed there before in 2009 and enjoyed it so much, we decided to stay there again. Yavanna is the perfect place to retreat, recharge and soak up the sun next to the peaceful pool. The rooms and exceptionally clean with beautiful fresh linen and lovely details. The kitchen and living room provides everything you need, plus we even had our very own private garden space overlooking the the lush Portuguese hill sides. On days out we went to a great vin yard just 5mins drive away, we went to 2 lovely markets and we even went across the boarder to Spain to take a day trip to one of the most stunning Island I have ever seen called Islas cies. I couldn't recommend it highly enough and I very much hope to go again! Also a big thank you to Eunice for her wonderful hospitality.

“It's one of those places that makes you double take just to make sure you're not dreaming.”

It's one of those places that makes you double take just to make sure you're not dreaming. Then comes the smile. It's as big as your face as you realise you have arrived at something better than your biggest expectations. A beautiful tranquil garden with lazy hammocks; kiwi trees and citrus fruits; a fresh salt-water swimming pool with comfy sun loungers overlooking the lush hills; a vegetable garden overflowing with produce and a perfect dining area underneath a canopy of green. By car It's a good base to explore the local villages and even dip into spain for some tapas. The sandy beaches are nearby and Eunice is forever on hand to recommend restaurants, day trips or book up kayaking on the Minho. This comes highly recommended.

“Perfect holiday”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

A week at Yavanna is not enough- having arrived back in England I am already reminiscing about what a lovely time I had in this idyllic location and with such welcoming hosts. The house, gardens and pool were stunning and provided the perfect venue for a week away with friends. My room was light, airy and very comfortable, with all the amenities I needed. It was wonderful to have a choice of spaces for outdoor dining and relaxing and the poolside area was the perfect sun trap. It was great being such a short drive from beautiful beaches and bustling markets for when we wanted a day excursion. I would highly recommend Yavanna to anyone contemplating staying - I am already looking forward to my next trip!

“The highlight of our six-week europe trip!”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2014

Yavanna was an amazing experience for our family of three. The rentals are gorgeous. All the modern amenities with the old world charm left intact. The property sits on a hill overlooking a beautiful valley. We spent several days hanging out in the garden and at the pool which is very private and inviting! The surrounding area offers colorful markets, amazing churches and stunning beaches. Eunice is an incredible host with intimate local knowledge. We hope to return to Yavanna's. Next time we will make sure to stay longer!
