About the property

Villa in Ponte de Lima, MINHO, Portugal

Quinta de Nabais is a luxurious villa with pool, tennis court near Ponte de Lima in Minho, North Portugal

This 16th Century house has been transformed over the years to create a luxury holiday villa offering many facilities including large well kept gardens and woodland

The house is in the Lima valley, Costa Verde, in the North of the country, considered by many to be the most beautiful area of Portugal. The valley is divided into very small fields (too small for a tractor!) which are surrounded by stone walls. Grapes for the local Vinho Verde wine grow around the edges whilst the centre is used for maize or cabbages

The old Roman town of

Ponte de Lima

, situated 8 kilometres away, is famous throughout Portugal for its small restaurants where you will find good food served with excellent Portuguese wines


Quinta de Nabais has 6 bedrooms all with en suite shower room. Three of the bedrooms have a double bed, two have twin beds and one has a single bed

There is a reading lounge upstairs which has doors leading out onto the balconies which provide a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere

The open plan lounge and dining room is complete with a very large table which is ideal for entertaining large groups in cool evenings, heated by the pleasant fireplace

The kitchen is, as you would imagine, traditional in style and is fully equipped with modern appliances

Quinta de Nabais also has a downstairs cloakroom


Quinta de Nabais is surrounded by extensive grounds and has a large swimming pool with a basketball hoop and a water polo goal

In the grounds there is an outdoor self catering dining area with stone tables and benches, shaded by mature trees - spectacular in summer

A separate modern kitchen is located in a covered area near the swimming pool.

This kitchen has a hob, oven, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine, kettle and separate cutlery and crockery. It also has a barbecue

For small children, there is a small play area near the swimming pool with swings etc. There are also bicycles and other sports equipment at the house for the use of guests

Tennis rackets are provided for use on the floodlit tennis court (metered electricity extra) however, serious players are advised to bring their own rackets

Attached to the Quinta is the private chapel where the owner, his family and the estate staff used to worship. It is still used for marriages and christenings in the family


The quinta is ideally located near modern fast roads leading to the old sailing port of

Viana do Castelo

, the

Peneda-Geres National Park

, the walled town of Valenca and, Vigo, Baiona and Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Braga,




are to the south also by motorway

Ponte de Lima golf course

has been described as 'championship golf at municipal prices' is a few kilometres from the house and also has an excellent restaurant
