Make a holiday rental in Ponte de Lima, Portugal your home away from home

Ponte de Lima self-catering holiday accommodation is located in and around an historic town in northern Portugal’s Minho region. This part of the country is noted for its attractive greenery, Atlantic coastline and upland scenery, and is also home to some of the most important locations relating to Portugal’s medieval history.

It’s one of the oldest towns in the country, and this history can be seen at landmarks such as the bridge over the River Lima and the remnants of the town’s defences, with the Torre de São Paulo particularly interesting. In the immediate vicinity you’ll encounter a verdant landscape of rolling farmland, with a host of choices for walks and bike rides. If you’re a golfer then the Ponte del Lima golf course would be well worth a round – it offers 18 holes tucked in woodland with spectacular mountain views.

Paul and Dora were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The welcome pack was appreciated as were the castanhas and wine. It was surprisingly easy to find, though the narrow lane to the property is interesting and would have been more difficult at night. The two bed roomed unit we occupied was tastefully furnished, it was very clean, the beds and sofa very comfortable. Nice crisp cotton sheets! The location of the property feels quite remote but in reality is not, Ponte de Lima is only 15 to 20 minutes away and Ponte da Barca about same. Being so near the river is great, nice to see the occasional fish jumping for bugs and to listen to the birds. A couple of things we would have appreciated that were not provided in our unit were an outside dining table and maybe a few more glasses. However the lack of these things did not spoil our week and I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

The conversion has been beautifully managed so that all modern comforts are available but unobtrusive. The property was very clean and well cared for, the owners were very helpful but not intrusive and we felt well cared for. The twice daily swims in the river in dappled shade was a particular pleasure.
