“Beautiful manor house”
Reviewed April 21, 2006

We loved this place in the North of Portugal, just 12 km south from Ponte de Lima. The place used to belong to some count, and was built in the 18th century or so. It is the typical construction of the area, white houses, red roof tops, and the grounds and gardens are beautifully taken care of. We also went after the seeding season, and here the grapes to produce Vinho Verde (green wine) are grown in what they called "Ramadas", so they are hanging on top of your head, and this gives a really nice view of all these places. It was April and a bit chilly for a swim, but we enjoyed the tennis court, the pool table, and playing chess in one of the guest rooms. Everything is quite simple, and there is not many people around you bothering at all. The services is just ok, nothing exceptional, dont expect more than basics.

There is only small villages around, and the closer town is Ponte the Lima, which is the only place that seems to have time trapped into. Here there are restaurants where you can eat, and a good place in all portugal are the "cervejaria", which is places whey they sell drinks and you can get the small portions of food, like the tapas version of portugese, or the meals of the day at very low prices. Don´t miss the markets in Barcelos (15 km) on thursdays or any other town they have specific dates, and it is a retreat for the eye, and a trip to Viana de Castelo is worth it for a day or 2, and it is about 25 km away. The surrounding roads have great views but dont expect highways everywhere, roads in between towns are small, narrow, and not very clear indications, but ask any portuguese, even if you understand it, they will show you the way and will be delighted to do so. Dont forget to say "obrigado" (thank you in portuguese), they love it!
