This is a fabulous house with wonderful and spacious grounds. Really quiet with olive, orange, quince and walnut trees, raspberries and strawberries. Idyllic! The kids loved swimming in the stream at the water mill (chilly!) and in the pool. It's just a five minute stroll into the centre of Ponte de Lima which is a gorgeous town, cobbled streets, pretty shops and picturesque river. The pastries are to die for and so cheap. It's 30 mins from the coast and we went surfing with Arda surf school (Marta's recommendation and a very good one). It's also around 30 mins from the Peneda-Gerez national park. We were going to go hiking but were too lazy. Went canyoning there instead which was fab with toboga. There's loads to do in Ponte de Lima itself with canoeing down the river and a glorious cycle path right next to the river. Marta is a lovely host at the house and is happy to answer any queries. We would love to go back sometime!

This house is paradise! Thanks Marta for being such a wonderful host. We were all in agreement this was probably the best air b n b home any of our party had ever had the pleasure of staying in! River swimming, pool swimming, fruit from the orchard, otter watching.... Sheer heaven!

Two words - "simply fabulous". This is a charming rustic house in a converted old water mill. The setting is just delightful - with a creek running by the house. The pictures give you a good impression of the house. The bedrooms and bathrooms are in the old part of the house while the living / dining and kitchen are in a new addition to the house. The living area is great to space to relax in after being a tourist for the day. We spent a week here - driving to some of the surrounding towns, walking up to the national park, bicycling along the river (warning - a fairly rocky track), exploring Pont de Lima and also having quiet days by the pool. All great and made better by coming back to this house. The town is 10 min walk along a quiet street or along the bank of the river then over the old Roman bridge. We had a couple of great meals in town as well as cooking at the house. Marta and her husband were charming and very helpful.

Fantastic house with great character, helpful hosts and Ponte de Lima is a great place to visit with this house giving very easy walking access to the heart of the city via the old roman and medieval bridge

Marta y Joao fueron unos anfitriones maravillosos, muy interesante todo lo que Joao nos contó sobre los orígenes de la vivienda y la finca. La casa es impresionante, confortable, con tres habitaciones con su propio baño, cocina y un salón enorme rodeado de ventanas con vistas al rio. Muy especial la habitación de la torre. La finca es espectacular, rodeada por el rio y el camino de Santiago. Ponte do Lima se encuentra a 10 minutos caminando desde la casa y es un pueblo medieval con mucho encanto para visitar. Pasamos unos días maravillosos nadando en la piscina, en el río, recogiendo naranjas y frambuesas para el desayuno (gracias Marta y Joao por compartir con nosotros!!!) y disfrutando de la naturaleza. Por último decir que esta casa es El Paraíso e intentaremos volver...gracias por todo!!!
