Beautiful country house with pool, located on the Rio Paiva banks. Only 8km from Alvarenga with plenty of restaurants nearby, dine in or take away. Within the Arouca Geopark this house is 8km from the Passadiços do Paiva.
Paradinha is a magical place where the road ends and a nature path begins. It’s a place to find fossils, for long walks, rafting, swiming and snorkeling in the cleanest river of the Iberian Peninsula.
To fully enjoy the region it’s advisable to have your own car.

This house is absolutely incredible and the photos on here do not do it justice in any way. It's in a different league to the way it looks in the photos. We had a wonderful 10 days here and felt so lucky and fortunate to have the opportunity to stay in such a wonderful place. The house is truly surrounded by nature and has uninterrupted views over miles and miles of mountains. The village itself is so pretty and quaint - it's like stepping back in time - it's full of character and there are no cars. We loved walking through the village down to the beautiful river where we swam. Seeing our 2 year old swim in a river for the first time was so special. There's also a tiny little café down there which is such a bonus. It sells drinks and hot dogs and is a lovely asset in place so small and remote. Everyone is very friendly, despite speaking no English and us no Portuguese. The swimming pool is wonderful and there was always a gentle breeze with it being in the mountains. We also loved eating under the kiwi terrace which was always shady and cool. And we picked fresh raspberries and blackberries every day! Patricia was an incredible host and couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome and comfortable. We are so grateful to her, especially for telling us to give our daughter a lemon to help with car sickness. It worked! We also loved meeting Helena and Herlander. They are absolutely charming and their energy and zest for life shines through in the energy of their house. They are some of life's wonderful people. Really, we can't recommend this place enough. It's a hidden gem and if you are looking for tranquility and a place to get away from everything, this is it! It's also easy to get to, being just 90 minutes from Porto and the local village of Alvarenga has everything you need. We had an amazing steak there in the restaurant next to the supermarket. My husband said it was the best he has ever eaten and he has eaten a lot of steak! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We have family memories that we will treasure always and we are leaving feeling re-balanced and refreshed!

Thanks so much for loving our house as well as Paradinha! We are really happy because we could share our small paradise with somebody like you. The beauty of simple places can give us peace and is unforgetable.

Superbe villa, moderne, propre, très bien équipée (piscine, barbecue, terrasse sous une tonnelle de kiwi, toute la maison est climatisée) avec une vue sur les montagnes et au calme. Nous avons été très bien accueillie par une amie de la propriétaire, Patricia, qui, après nous avoir montré la maison, nous a indiqué toutes les activités à faire dans la région. Une brioche, spécialité de la région, nous a été offerte comme cadeau de bienvenue. Patricia a été disponible tout au long de notre séjour et nous a aidé pour réserver une randonnée. La maison est à proximité de belles randonnées ( Passadiços, Aldeia Magica) et d'une plage fluviale (2 mn à pied de la maison). Nous vous conseillons de faire les courses à Arouca (30 mn en voiture) avant d'arriver car il n'y a pas de commerce à proximité de la maison. Nous vous conseillons sans hésiter cette belle maison et son cadre idéal pour passer de bonnes vacances en famille ou entre amis.

As fotos do local criaram expectativas elevadas, que se cumpriram. Alojamento com excelentes condições num local paradisíaco. Ideal para um grupo de amigos ou para uma família. Bom ponto de partida para conhecer a região. Guardem tempo para usufruir do espaço: refeições no jardim, banhos na piscina ou no rio (não tivemos oportunidade de tomar banho no rio mas constatámos que a temperatura a água é convidativa), observação das estrelas. Até tivemos direito a uma trovoada! A Patrícia foi incansável e a sua ajuda foi preciosa. A repetir? Quem sabe. Talvez à próxima conheçamos a Helena.

Somos um casal de médicos, com 3 filhas, todos nós apaixonados pela natureza e pela Arte. Encontramos na Paradinha o sítio ideal para descansar dos dias agitados da cidade. O lugar é mágico e propício à criatividade. As águas do rio Paiva que aqui passa mantêm-se a 23 graus de Junho a Outubro, permitindo nadar longas horas numa envolvência vegetal única. Pintei e esculpi muitas das obras de arte que se encontram no interior e exterior da casa, o que lhe dá um marcado cunho pessoal.
É um local de partilha com amigos, aos quais vos quero incluir.
Uma das nossas grandes paixões é viajar pelo mundo, fazendo férias de aventura.
