We were welcomed by the count into his authentic manor. The manor is amazing and typical. The count showed us around and told us some of the history. Ponte de Lima and surroundings are beautifull and also typical. If there was anything negative to mention, it must be the beds. They were also antique and hard. Next morning the count... More

I read some of the reviews, and must say that my experience was fantastic. I slept in a super comfortable bed, with fresh and clean linens, in a gorgeous room. Breakfast had fresh bread, homemade iogurt and jam, local milk and eggs. I found the property to be spotless, with recent renovated areas. If I must find something to critique,... More

Unfortunately we were drowned out by the torrential rain on the day we visited Paco De Calheiros, but a wonderful warm welcome was awaiting us by the Count. A beautiful lunch plus the vino verde and roaring fires restored our spirits. We were not staying there ,sadly, but the quality of the rooms was exceptional, and I would love to... More

Our stay in this beautiful home was memorable. The richness and colors of the gardens, and the warmth of the house simply made our stay perfect! Count Calheiros is the most wonderful host, attentive and cordial at all times. His home is filled with light, as well as his gardens, and it is obvious that this is a place loved... More

I had to give it an average because there were exceptional qualities and some not so good. The I was recently on a walking trip to Portugal and we stayed here for two nights. Count Calheiros was wonderful, charming and attentive! The grounds themselves were lovely, with beautiful views of Ponte de Lima. The Count is working hard to make... More

Little did we realize when we arrived that we would be hosted by Count Calheiros himself in this gorgeously restored manor home. Not sure if this happen with everyone, but we had aperitifs with the count who showed us all over his incredible home that has been in the family for 600 years. Then to dinner in a grand room...

This Portuguese stately home owned by the Count of Calheiros has been welcoming guests for over 20 years, whilst the Count's decision to open his house was certainly economic it has also provided him with an opportunity to share the history of this fine house with many visitors whilst, at the same time, promoting the region to a wider audience....

In mid-September the spectacular gardens were full of fruit and flowers... this property is beautiful. Rooms were charming, interesting and old fashioned (in the main house) or charming enough and a bit bland (the new wing in the former stables) but all were spotless and comfortable and the gardens and terraces are exceptional. Breakfast was great. I highly recommend it.

I recently had the opportunity to spend a delightful evening in this 16th/17th century manor house, which was renovated in 1986. This house has been in the family since the 1300s, and since the family lives in the manor, one gets a very comfortable quiet relaxed homely feeling. the highlight of the visit was a tour by the owner's son,...
