Ponte de Lima self-catering holiday accommodation is located in and around an historic town in northern Portugal’s Minho region.

Clean and spacious with everything you need for a home from home experience. Just make sure you ask Susana for a map to locate the house!

It's a great house and pool in an interesting area of Portugal. A spacious casa and a large outdoor area to enjoy. You have great options to relax in the sun or shade outdoors. The pool is first class. You are made to feel very welcome by Paula. Ponte de Lima is charming and has many interesting restaurants and bars. There are other places to visit further afield, but like us you may put them off for another day, to enjoy the casa and the immediate area as fully as possible.
