                                                          Very nice property - nicely done and superb kitchen and dining space - we love to cook and we were spoilt with the selection of utensils and loved using the wood stove to make a slow roast! The owners were very friendly and we were looked after well - not intrusive but we knew they were there if we needed them. The house is semi-rural - but don't be dissuaded by that - its very easy to get to everywhere you need and very quickly - Porto 45 mins - Braga and Ponte de Lima about 35 and the coastal town of Viana do Castelo only took about 10 mins. There are nearby cafes and restaurants - very cheap and good wholesome typical cuisine - big portions! If you want fancy 'gourmet nouvell cuisine' stay at home :-) Weather at Easter was kind - enjoyed the festivals during this period especially in Braga The house is very private and the owners had just completed the pool the week before we arrived - the water was too cool for us to go in- but the pool looks top notch and has a superb outlook with great views - I'm sure it will be fabulous in the summer. There's also a great bbq area built outside if you like doing that sort of thing A wonderful time was had by us all - mum dad, grandparents and three kids

                                                          What a great time we all had - our family of four and my sisters family of four loved the house, the facilities and the local town of Ponte de Lima The house is spacious and was brand new having been completely renovated by the owner The outdoor space was fab - there is a 2nd separate kitchen beside the shaded solid stone table. This was great to go back and forth with food and drinks from the fridge as the hubbies did their usual stand by the built in bbq and cook our lunch The pool was very nice and the garden was enclosed and safe for our little ones to play It's in a small hamlet which is great from the perspective that it's tranquil and peaceful but within a few minutes drive we could be at restaurants cafes supermarkets etc We loved Ponte de Lima - lovely friendly town - was amazed by the sandy river beaches - the kids loved it - the river is very wide and with little current it made for excellent swimming and sun bathing We did a couple of day trips - one across the border into Spain and Galicia and the other to Porto and Braga The motorways are empty and superb and we did both trips in under an hour We normally got to the Algarve as we love Portugal and the people but going to the north for the first time was a real eye opener for us - main differences - Not as boiling oppressively hot Half the price for practically everything Food was better quality and better served Wine was dirt cheap and lively especially the vinho verde which is apparently from the north We have already booked to come back to the north to try the Douro valley Big thumbs up from us and thanks Fernando for organising everything and making it so easy
