House for rent - Porto

Welcome to our warm, traditional family farm, Zen Vouga, located on the outskirts of a rural village in Portugal, Zen Vouga, also known as Quinta do Fundo de Vila, sits on just over 3 acres (1 hectare) of pure nature, in a tranquil and idyllic setting. Comprised of 3 private houses for visitors, each rented separately. Alltogether, we sleep up to 14 people for retreats, family gatherings and the like. We welcome everyone, regardless of ethnicity, colour, credence or sexual orientation.
We have the facilities necessary for you to make your own meals and enjoy some relaxing time in Portugal's laid-back countryside.
The space
Zen Vouga is our family farm dating back to 1744. In keeping with the appreciation for the best of traditional Portugal, we have restored our houses with hewn granite stone, local timber, and wood-fired clay tiles, also paving our pathways in cobblestone. Situated in a region of Portugal known for excellent gastronomy, regional wines, and the largest thermal baths in the country, Zen Vouga is a perfect place to relax and replenish.
At the farm, our guests can view traditional wine-making facilities, an ancient wine press and cellar. We have also preserved a maize crib, barbecue and wooden oven, typical of Portuguese country homes. We have added a games room and a covered pool for the entertainment of our guests.
We have three fully-appointed houses on site for rentals. Casa da Terra dos Padres and Casa dos Padres are located on the ground floor. Casa do Pinheiro is accessible by a short flight of stairs. They may be rented separately or all together for larger groups.
Casa da Terra dos Padres comprises of 3 bedrooms. Bedroom 1 contains a double bed. Bedrooms 2 and 3 each contain 2 single beds each.
This house also has a large, American kitchen and a large living room, where 2 mattresses can be fitted and there is a double sofa bed.
House #2 comprises of 1 bedroom with a double bed and a double sofa bed.
House #3 comprises of 1 bedroom with a double bed and a double sofa bed.
FYI, we have a separate house for our own use. This fourth house is not for rent.
We also have a wheelchair ramp for accessibility.
We welcome you warmly and ask that you treat our country home with care and respect.
Guest access
Nature surrounds us, our views opening onto bucolic vistas into untouched mountainsides. in the valley of the River Vouga that runs through Ribeiradio county, 2.5 hours north of Lisbon, 1 hour south of Porto by car.
The guests may access all areas of our grounds. For individual rentals of the houses, we ask that you be conscious and respectful of other guests. You may also rent out all three houses which will ensure full privacy.
Other things to note
We are committed to keeping things simple and sustainable. We ask that you keep your showers short (we have solar panels and limited storage tanks, so please be mindful of the others so they too may have hot showers).

The farm is in a remote village in the countryside, so we don't have a public sewer system and instead use septic tanks. We ask that you use only wash personal products like soaps and shampoos in the drains and dispose of everything else (including toilet paper) in the toilet bins provided.
Please help us preserve and maintain nature at its best.

FAQ
What happens after I make a reservation?

Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.

Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.

What is the standard furnishing of flats?
All the apartments on offer on Flatio must meet certain standards. We require fully furnished and equipped ones, dishes, cutlery and internet connection included.
What is a medium-term rent?
The duration of a medium-term rent is usually 1 to 12 months. Most of the landlords offer long-term rents or rents for just a few days, therefore getting a medium-term rent without Flatio is not that easy.
Can I go through the contract before I make a reservation of the housing?

You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.

While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.

Can I see the flat personally before signing?

Why would you waste time on personal apartment tours? Just use our virtual tour, which allows you to visit several flats in a just a few minutes, and you don't even have to leave your house.

We vouch for all our flat offers! If one does not look like it does on our website, you will get your money back and we will arrange compensatory accommodation for you.

How can I pay?
On Flatio, you have a variety of payment methods to choose from. You can use your card, payment gateway or bank transfer. Just pick the one which suits you the most.
How can I cancel my reservation?

How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.

Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!

However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.

Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancellation policy).
