This house is beautiful - full of light and good positive energy. A perfect way to end a holiday. I will return to New York with all the peace and good spirits of this place!

ANDREAS, CRISTINA, DAGMAR and PETER.(East) Germany - 28-05-2010


Le Mystère joyeux de cette si belle maison ne tient pas tout au fait des dragons protecteurs de sa entrée d'honneur, ni ala tutelle débomaire su nepturne qui a laissé son trident au vestiaire, mais tout entier au bon gout de Carolina et á son enthousiasme communicatif. Le most d'ailleurs ne sejuifie-t-il pas être gouflé par la inspiration d'un dieu? De Perséphone, sans doute, Deuse saisommiére et gracieuse jardiniére.

Jennis , Vanessa, Payan, Ymke Holland 10-08-2010


It is said that the houses reflect the face of those who leave it. The light, the smell, the silence and the wind that crosses the garden could be part of a film made with rare delicacy. I wish Roses Village continues to make beautiful flowers for many years. Thanks Carolina

Dear Carolina ,


For us it was the first time in Portugal , it was unforgetable , nice , friendly and relaxed people so as you are . You were a good host , you take care for everything , we felt at home. For us Portugal was also coming back to our roots , (the food , the music etc) in lots of them we recogniase our Indonesian roots . It's amazing how a small country with less population has had a great influence in the world . Carolina you are like the portuguese people warm and nice . Thank for hospitality .

Kenny and Fred Waterman - U.S -24 September 2012


Wonderful hosts and beautiful villa. We rented all four rooms so it made a great holiday home base to explore the beach/nearby area and also very easy to get the train into the city. Carolina was really helpful on email before we arrived and both her and her husband made us feel very welcome during our stay. There were four couples one of whom had a baby and we were well looked after. Advice - the villa is close to the train tracks so bring ear plugs as it can be quite noisy at night! I had some so slept fine :) Restaurants near the villa are ok but the italian one on the beach was excellent so highly recommend eating there.

“what an amazing place and hosts”  in TRIPADVISOR


My wife and I booked in for ten nights with our two children, aged 7 and 4 and were really unsure as what to expect...on arrival we were so delighted firstly with the accomadation: OMG the Noble room is amazing! Also our hosts, Carolina and Paulo met us with a glass of port on the poolside!!! and the welcome was being welcomed home rather than to accomadation! From the very first day Carolina was great she offered us other rooms as she said that the Noble room could be noisy with trains and to be honest yes there were trains but nothing that would affect your sleep! So we stayed in the room as it was so amazing...... The house is amazing we had other guests in the house for two nights from US: what a great time we all had together it all felt like a family....the area that the guests have is large, romantic and atmospheric with lots of seating areas and of course the POOL(salt water great for the skin and children)..thank God for that it helped exhaust the kids. The hosts could not have been better as i said it was like visiting family....Carolina added a feeling of being looked after with her coffee strong in the mornings outside and we would wile away the morning talking and chatting...the obvious link was our Irish heritage....Paulo was such an amazing font of local knowledge and information. The piece de resistance was both escorted us into porto for St Johns celebrations and we had an amazing time with them, and their son, Renato...Of course there was Franciscia,Carolina has rased an amazing girl who got up when we came home at 1:30am from st johns celebrations because our kids wanted to see her and also to watch them put up paper lanterns....thanks for such a special memory guys Location is great the Cafe does the most amazing pasteries near the firestation...Mr Rabbits does great portuguese chicken which is next door...also the rain station is 1 min from the house and brings u direct to Porto to San Benito station....it is an amazing city...my wife preferred it to Venice...the beach is beautiful but seas were rough but still fab walks..the church at mirimar is etheral...go to Elas Bar near the aquarium which is worth the visit with the children. There is a nice beach bar on the way to Mirimar which is lovely as are all the bars/cafes at Mirimar.... Carolina and her family made this trip for us a total dream...any reluctance we had dissipated on sight of her home and her welcome and her kindness.

“Great place to stay”


This familyhouse -with a ancien soul- is a great place to stay when you want to explore the northern region of Portugal. You can easily visit cities like Guimaraes, Porto and Braga by train.


The rooms are very comfortable, big, clean. The authentic breakfast is served with a great smile for a reasonable price.. You can eat very good in the nearest restaurants for a small price. You can discover the area by walking, hiking, swimming or running or you can just lay down, relax and enjoy the beautiful environment..


You wouldn't regret it! Stayed May 2013, traveled with family in TRIPADVISOR

 “what an amazing place and hosts”


My wife and I booked in for ten nights with our two children, aged 7 and 4 and were really unsure as what to expect...on arrival we were so delighted firstly with the accomadation: OMG the Noble room is amazing! Also our hosts, Carolina and Paulo met us with a glass of port on the poolside!!! and the welcome was being welcomed home rather than to accomadation! From the very first day Carolina was great she offered us other rooms as she said that the Noble room could be noisy with trains and to be honest yes there were trains but nothing that would affect your sleep! So we stayed in the room as it was so amazing...... The house is amazing we had other guests in the house for two nights from US: what a great time we all had together it all felt like a family....the area that the guests have is large, romantic and atmospheric with lots of seating areas and of course the POOL(salt water great for the skin and children)..thank God for that it helped exhaust the kids. The hosts could not have been better as i said it was like visiting family....Carolina added a feeling of being looked after with her coffee strong in the mornings outside and we would wile away the morning talking and chatting...the obvious link was our Irish heritage....Paulo was such an amazing font of local knowledge and information. The piece de resistance was both escorted us into porto for St Johns celebrations and we had an amazing time with them, and their son, Renato...Of course there was Franciscia,Carolina has rased an amazing girl who got up when we came home at 1:30am from st johns celebrations because our kids wanted to see her and also to watch them put up paper lanterns....thanks for such a special memory guys Location is great the Cafe does the most amazing pasteries near the firestation...Mr Rabbits does great portuguese chicken which is next door...also the rain station is 1 min from the house and brings u direct to Porto to San Benito station....it is an amazing city...my wife preferred it to Venice...the beach is beautiful but seas were rough but still fab walks..the church at mirimar is etheral...go to Elas Bar near the aquarium which is worth the visit with the children. There is a nice beach bar on the way to Mirimar which is lovely as are all the bars/cafes at Mirimar.... Carolina and her family made this trip for us a total dream...any reluctance we had dissipated on sight of her home and her welcome and her kindness. Roses Village is a very special place that feeds your soul and mind...we will be back for the laughs, coffees, chats and glasses of port!! XXXX Room Tip: The train noise is there but honestly you wont notice it and Carolina was so worried for us she boug...

Me and my friends (8 people) really enjoyed our 3 day trip to Porto. The house is quiet big, well equiped with 2 bathroom, 2 living room and spacious room.


Our host Carolina is really helpful for everything u can need (even helping us ordering taxis).


The house is really located 5 minutes by walk to the sea with some nice restaurants, bars and "supermarket".


All the pictures uploaded are true, it's really a lovely place.


The station Aguda which leads to Porto city centre in 15 minutes is just across the street (even if you need sometimes to wait for the train especially on Sunday).


The only thing that might disturbs you could be the noise of the train but it remains acceptable.


I hope you will also enjoy your stay in Porto as we did

We - three adults, two boys (13 and 5) and a girl (8) - really enjoyed our week at Villa Rosa (Aguda). The Portuguese we met were very warm and friendly and made us feel welcome everywhere we went. The house was very interesting and met our needs (although we think a full kitchen would have made it perfect). Our hosts very really welcoming, helpful and informative. We visited Porto (a great city) twice and found the proximity to the station useful. We really appreciated the proximity to the beach. I enjoyed running along the boardwalk through the dunes to Espinho every day.

“Great Bed & Breakfast”


A great bed and breakfast with big and clean rooms at the perfect location to explore Porto and the surrounding area. The hosts are very friendly and can give you a ton of information about the neighbourhood, such as which restaurants you should go to ( and which ones you should avoid )


The location is pretty much perfect: it's just outside porto ( 15 minutes by train, very convenient ), and a 2 minutes walk to the sea.

Very nice and close to everything. Very warm welcome by the owner. The only area for improvement is the ability to prepare meals at home (not only cook a microwave available). Highlight accessibility to the train. Spacious and cleanliness!!

I hosted my 40th birthday party at the Roses Village. I had 9 friends staying in the house for 2 nights and 20 more coming for the party in the evening. We had the best time! Roses Village is a stunning house, beatifully presented and with a perfect combination of character and modern facilities. The close proximity to the railway allowed for an easy visit to Oporto town centre and link to the airport. Carolina and Francisca were absolutely amazing hosts and all our needs were catered with a smile. They also helped choosing the catering service which was exceptional and worked constantly with them to make sure that the party was flawless. Amazing hosts. Thank you!


Ola Carolina e Francisca. Mais uma vez obrigado pela vossa disponibilidade e atencao! A festa foi fenomenal e os meus amigos adoraram a estadia na Roses Village. Espero que tenha corrido tudo bem para voces tambem!

We hebben een prima verblijf gehad met 5 personen in het huis van Carolina. We werden gastvrij ontvangen door Carolina en haar dochter. Het huis is sfeervol; de tuin in ruim. De foto's op de website geven een goed beeld van het huis. Omdat op de website vermelding werd gemaakt van bed and breakfast rekenden wij de eerste dag op een ontbijt. Carolina legde ons uit dat dit geldt voor gasten die het hele huis huren. Vlak bij het huis is een goede supermarkt waar we voor weinig geld ons eigen ontbijt konden inkopen. We hebben heerlijk ontbeten in de ochtendzon. Het huis ligt op 300 meter afstand van het strand waar een aantal leuke eethuisjes zijn. Het strand is rustig; je kunt er goed wandelen en joggen. Binnen 20 minuten ben je met de auto in Porto. Ook met de trein is Porto goed bereikbaar, omdat het huis tegenover het station ligt. Het huis is ook geschikt voor grotere groepen.


Very good house; good atmosphere. Large rooms; nice garden with the pool.
