A melhor casa de varias que já conheci.
Casa muito bem conservada, com todas a comodidades necessárias e mais algumas, sentimo-nos como se estivéssemos em nossa casa. Ficamos com pena de ter que regressar a casa.
Fomos 4 adultos e passamos uma semana de ferias como a muito precisávamos, muito descanso e sossego :D
A piscina é maravilhosa e o espaço envolvente é muito belo e pacifico.
Adoramos visitar Ponte de Lima e seus belos restaurantes.
Gostaríamos de Agradecer a mãe da menina Custodia, que nos arranjou um padeiro a parar a nossa porta todas as manhas com pão e bolos fresquinhos.
Agradecemos também a Senhora Margaret todo a sua simpatia em nos receber em sua casa e a sua preocupação para que a nossa estadia fosse a melhor possível.
Esperamos um dia poder voltar.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and made the most not only of the beauty and peacefulness of the cottage but also the bustling, attractive market town of Ponte de Lima with its ancient buildings, interesting riverside gardens and variety of restaurants.
It is our aim to give complete satisfaction to our visitors and we try to provide not only everything necessary for that 'home from home' feeling, so important for a fully relaxing, enjoyable holiday, but also to meet any personal requirement that different groups may have.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the cottage one day.
great house in a great location
It was the most beautiful holiday house that we have ever rent. Thank you Margaret for you hospitality. Your welcome package have saved our lives when we finally arrived late at night (around 1 a.m.). Your big, well equipped kitchen really helped us preparing some great Portuguese dishes. The view from the pool was overwhelming. We have lived in your hose for a week but I wish we could stay longer.
Thank you Piotr for your kind review and we are really happy that you enjoyed your holiday to the full. Our objective is to give our visitors the best possible break with the least possible hassle and we are pleased that the welcome pack came in useful. We always try to provide a snack or light meal for guests arriving late or those who are feeling too tired for an immediate visit to the local supermarket.
Thank you too for being our first Polish visitors to send in a review. We hope it will encourage more of your countrymen to visit us and we certainly hope we shall see you again in the not too distant future.
The most fantastic view over the swimming pool
This was the most amazing place to visit. We came here primarily to attend the music festival in the town (Paredes de Coura) - but had never been to northern Portugal before - it was a real eye opener. The scenery is absolutely stunning - green rolling hills and hair-pin bends similar to what you'd expect to see in Greece or Italy. The house itself is a really lovely old place (and very well equipped) - and the garden and the pool are unbeatable. The place is really peaceful and the views are breath-taking. Margaret the owner was really friendly and helpful. We had a great time at the festival which was about 15 mins away in Paredes de Coura - like a mini Glastonbury - with mini prices and fabulous weather. We also really enjoyed nearby Ponte de Lima where you can swim and canoe in the river and have delicious meals in the riverside restaurants. Also a trip to Porto was fantastic. An absolute dream of a holiday!
Beautiful peaceful cottage in stunning setting
We had a wonderful holiday in Casal Pedro in July 2013 (sorry Margaret that we have taken so long to review!). The setting is truly stunning and we never tired of the beautiful view from the swimming pool. Casal Pedro was perfect for two of us and would comfortably accommodate more guests. The cottage was clean and everything you could possibly need was provided for us. We really enjoyed using the barbecue just outside and eating on the terrace in the evenings. The gardens are beautiful and you can't help relaxing with the peace and quiet. You definitely need a car and should be prepared to drive distances to visit nearby towns although there are some nice walks to do not far from the cottage. Margaret was very helpful and easy to communicate with prior to arrival and we met her and her husband at the beginning of our holiday - they are a very kind and helpful couple and we felt very well looked after. We would definitely return to this place, and the two cottages rented out together would be perfect for a group of friends or large family. Highly recommended!
We are so happy that you enjoyed your holiday at our cottage and gain great satisfaction from knowing that we are achieving our target of making visitors feel at home in a relaxed and welcoming environment and at the same time giving really good value for money.
We thoroughly enjoy meeting our guests and have made some good friends who often return to Casal Pedro, bringing friends or more family members with them.
Thank you so much for your kind words which sum up exactly the atmosphere of the farm and what we are trying to do. We should love to welcome you back one day.
Just a lovely piece of Portugal!
This farmhouse is located in the beautiful green hills in a tiny lovely village. The view over the mountains is breath taking. The house itself provides everything you need for a great stay, including a pool. We stayed with 5 people for 10 days and it feels like home. Margaret and Alex are perfect hosts. They provided any help we needed to find the place and to enjoy our unforgetable trip.
The location is a good place to explore the nature and the north of Portugal: Ponte de Lima, Viana de Castello, Porto and many more. Also the Spanish coast with its small villages and uncrouded bays and beaches.
Thank you Margaret and Alex for your kindness. We will come back!
We really enjoyed meeting our guests and hearing about their home countries and the meal we shared gave us a chance to sample the excellent and varied Shri-Lankan cuisine and was much appreciated. As you say the location is very good for sight seeing and despite the less than perfect weather you experienced there is always plenty to do and usually some sun to be found in one direction or another. We look forward to welcoming you again in Casal Pedro before too long.
Far from the maddening crowds
This converted, stone-walled olive press provided us with a very relaxing break from our busy lives in London. Situated about an hours drive North of Porto, several hundred metres up into the Portugese countryside we found our perfect bolt-hole.
Everything has been though of here to make life comfortable. There are too many fine details to list. The kitchen is well equipped, well down to the dishwasher - much appreciated for helping us not waste time with the drudegry after our al fresco dinners on the terrace under the grapevines.
The views of the hills and valley are jaw-droping - even better from the pool. The pool is shared with the only other property on the site, though it is a good size and has ample furniture to lounge on whilst taking in both the vistas and the sun.
The pretty Roman town of Ponte de Lima is a 15 drive away with good supermarkets and plenty of cafes, shops and restuarants to discover in it's ambling maze of streets.
But the joy of Quinta da Ribiera is it's quietness. The tolling of the local church bells, the sound of farmers tending their animals and crops all lend a nod and a wink to lost, halcyon days of rural arcadia.
I will certainly come back and without doubt recomend this to anyone wishing some time, truly away from it all.
Many thanks Simon for your glowing review.
Our aim is to give all our guests a relaxing hassle-free holiday when they can forget the problems and worries of their everyday lives and can return home feeling really refreshed.
We are really happy that we seem to have achieved this in your case and we look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future.
In der schönen Gegend von Minho, auf halbem Wege zwischen den Städten Ponte de Lima und Paredes de Coura gelegen, ist die Lage im Wesentlichen ländlich. Der Bauernhof ist gut für Sightseeing, aber mit spanischen Galizien im Norden, den Atlantikstränden im Westen, den historischen Städten Porto und Braga im Süden und dem Nationalpark Peneda-Geres im Osten. Die Gegend ist reich an malerischen Marktstädten mit ihren farbenfrohen Straßenmärkten, kleinen Hügelschreinen, die fantastische Ausblicke bieten, und Dorffesten mit ihren traditionellen religiösen Prozessionen.
Der lokale Golfplatz in Ponte de Lima ist nur 25 Autominuten entfernt. Enthusiasten haben uns gesagt, dass Golf auf dem lokalen Kurs attraktiver, wesentlich billiger ist und ein besseres Spiel bietet als viele der Algarve-Kurse. Weitere Kurse in der Umgebung sind in Estella und Vigo (Spanien), beide sind ca. eine Autostunde entfernt. Ein Auto ist wichtig, bitte überprüfen Sie, ob die Versicherung Reisen nach Spanien abdeckt, um Enttäuschungen zu vermeiden.
Mögliche Aktivitäten in der Umgebung: Kanufahren
