Wonderful Location!

  • 4 of 5

Paul could not have been nicer. He and his wife hustled to clean the apartment for us and in the meantime we sat by the pool and enjoyed the river views. Our apartment could use a few items--a couple of larger coffee cups, paper towels and some scissors to cut open package. A real coffee maker would be great and some instructions on how to use appliances so you don't need to bother people! Wifi is sketchy due to rural location not their efforts. Overall we definitely recommend. We cannot say enough nice things about the pretty location and immaculate facilities.

Off the beaten track but not!

  • 5 of 5

We selected the Farm of Ribeira in order to be close to the National Park for hiking but be able to enjoy the comforts of home as well. It was a perfect choice--especially since the temperatures were in the high 90s when we were there. To cool off we waded in the river (it's also possible to swim, use the raft, or take advantage of the pool.)

The owner, Paul, is very thoughtful and provides an excellent orientation to the house and the surrounding area. He recommended an excellent pizza restaurant that is just down the road which was just what we wanted after hiking. We were also grateful that he had just added air conditioning.

We ate our meals outside on the deck--breakfast and dinner (we cooked one night and bought grilled chicken from a Churrasqueira called Tic Tac in Ponte de Lima (we highly recommend it --you will need to get directions to the place since it's in a residential area).

This is truly a great find!

Peaceful Riverside Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Quinta da Ribeira this September. Paul and Dora were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The welcome pack was appreciated as were the castanhas and wine. It was surprisingly easy to find, though the narrow lane to the property is interesting and would have been more difficult at night. The two bed roomed unit we occupied was tastefully furnished, it was very clean, the beds and sofa very comfortable. Nice crisp cotton sheets! The location of the property feels quite remote but in reality is not, Ponte de Lima is only 15 to 20 minutes away and Ponte da Barca about same. Being so near the river is great, nice to see the occasional fish jumping for bugs and to listen to the birds.

A couple of things we would have appreciated that were not provided in our unit were an outside dining table and maybe a few more glasses. However the lack of these things did not spoil our week and I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

Lovely house in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

This house is in an idyllic position beside the river Lima. All you can hear are the birds singing and the water flowing. The view from the balcony is beautiful. The house is exactly as shown in the photos. Paul and Dora are very helpful and had wine, bread and cheese waiting for us. It's just an hour from Porto airport.There were bikes on the property that we rented for a very reasonable price and used every day as the house is not far from a number of the 'ecovias' that go up and down each side of the river. These are lovely for walking or cycling, with lots of shade and places to swim. You can swim in the river at the house also which is a big plus.Ponte de Lima is less than 10mins away and is a gorgeous little town with lots of restaurants. Less than half an hour will bring you to the beaches at Viana de Castelo. We had a great holiday here and would highly recommend it.
