Lovely holiday home in a beautiful landscape.

  • 5 of 5

We have greatly enjoyed our family holiday in Labruja near Ponte de Lima (family with three teenage daughters of 10, 12 and 16 years old). The house has been restored and renovated two years ago and shows a good mixture of traditional and modern building materials. It is very clean and comfortable and provided - because of its thick walls - a very pleasant cool atmosphere during hot summer days (we enjoyed 26-32 degrees and lovely sunshine during our entire holiday period. The garden offers lovely views over the surrounding terraced landscapes including vineyards, woodlands, moutain and small villages. Beautiful and very comfortable swimming pool in front of the house.with extremely clean and clear water: ideal for children and for refreshing on warm summer days. The owners of the house are very friendly, speak French and English, and live only three minutes from the house. They are very helpful when questioned by telephone. The village of Labruja is very quiet and traditional, with many steep and winding roads, bordered by stone walls. The first time it is not so easy to find your way to the house by car following the narrow and steep roads, but after some practising it is OK. The little town of Ponte de Lima, which is about 20 minutes drive from the house, is very charming, situated along the river Lima, with many restaurants, small shops and a large monday market every two weeks. A the edge of the villa there are two large supermarkets: Intermarche, which has a very large choice, but expensive and crowdy, as well as a Lidl supermarket who has a more limited assortement, but exremely expensive and quiet. In general, prices in Portugal in supermarkets, shops and restaurants are much lower than we are used to in The Netherland (and I think also with respect to many other European countries), which makes a holiday here very atrractive. From the house we made many interesting tours by car in the beautiful mountain landscapes around (for instance Serra da Peneda and Geres) and also to the beautiful historic cities of Porto, Braga, Barcelos and Viana do Castelo. Especially Porto and Braga provided excellent shopping possibilities for our three teenage girls. At Darque (about a half hour drive) there is a beautiful sandy ocean beach. The ocean water, however, is rather cold for a swim, All together we enjoyed a lovely family holiday here at the end of July and the beginning of August. We would recommend this house to family, friends and relatives,

Je suis partagé entre vous donner tous les points positifs et garder mes impressions pour moi, en effet cette maison est super un très bon rapport qualité prix avec des propriétaires adorables, je recommande vivement mais si vous pouviez éviter de réserver pour l année prochaine ca m arrangerait ! Car nous comptons bien y retourner☺ , petite info pour trouver la maison, il faut suivre la M522 direction mouro puis suivre direction capella de sorocco... Car si vous passer par la route qu indique google ou autre gps, vous trouverez une route fermée...

Mention spéciale pour l intermarche de ponte lima très bien pour y faire ses courses

Une surprise inattendue

  • 5 of 5

On avait loué une autre maison (602991-qui avait l'air tout à fait correcte et conviviale d'ailleurs) mais comme la fête annuelle de village allait commencer le jour même (et nuit) de notre arrivée les propriétaires avec toutte leur gentillesse ont proposé cette maison (sans surcharge ou quoique ce soit), celli-ci, qui, par coïncidence était libre pour la semaine. Et quelle surprise c'était! un véritable bijou: avec une magnifique vue panoramique de la vallée, à un endroit paisible au bout d'un petit chemin, bien renovée avec un comfort assez luxueux (3 salles de bains et piscine privée). On a passé une semaine superbe et pour bien la terminer les propriétaires nous ont invités à venir dîner chez eux le dernier soir: quelle hospitalité de ces gens adorables! Le seul point potentiellement négatif (mais ça dépend des goûts et des préférences de chacune et chacun): il faut aimer les matelas un peu durs... Sinon, c'étaient la maison et les vacances parfaites! un grand merci!

We can make beautiful walks, know the natural parks, bathing in numerous rivers, enjoy water activitées .With unspoilt rural setting, close with a privileged location for cultural excursions and hiking. Ponte de Lima is a small town 60 miles north of Guimaraes beautiful city classified by Unesco, 80 km north of Porto, a must if you stay in northern Portugal, 1h30 south of St Jacques de Compostela in Spain.
