About Lourenço d´Almada

My name is Lourenço de Almada and i am natural of this great Minho mansion in Lanheses - Viana do Castelo. As a representative and heir of one of the most noble and ancient families of Portugal, I had early contact with the Portuguese heritage, its traditions, which are my passion of study and visit, here and abroad. Now I am pleased to put this knowledge at your disposal, being one of them the "art of good hospitality."

Why Lourenço d´Almada chose Viana do Castelo

I did not buy the property because it is in my family for over 500 years.

Le calme de la campagne

  • 2 of 5

Décor authentique, s' il n'y avait pas l'électricité, on se serait cru retournés quelques sciecles en arrière!

Le propriétaire est un homme charmant et cultivé qui vous mets tout de suite à l'aise et bienvenus.

Deux lieux à visiter absolument à proximité: Ponte de Lima et Barcelos!

Mini férias em Lanheses

  • 5 of 5

Apesar de no início o tempo não ter ajudado, adorámos a estadia no Paço. A calma e a paisagem circundante são retemperadoras, para além da hospitalidade dos proprietários. No último dia o Sol permitiu-nos finalmente desfrutar do pequeno-almoço no exterior, com uma vista magnífica sobre a propriedade. O edifício é muito interessante, não só ao nível da arquitetura mas também pelas referências à sua história familiar. A adaptação à sua utilização turística foi muito bem conseguida, disponibilizando várias comodidades, sendo que a cozinha se mostrou providencial. A visita “guiada” pelas árvores de fruto e pelos jardins foi não só interessante como proveitosa: os limões que trouxemos irão fazer umas boas limonadas! Muito obrigada por um fim de semana inesquecível.

Simplesmente maravilhoso!

  • 5 of 5

Quando chegámos ao Paço de Lanheses, só estávamos a pensar ficar cerca de 2 dias. Ao fim do 1º, já tínhamos decidido que valia a pena prolongar a estadia!

O Paço em si, apesar da dimensão, é muito confortável e sentimo-nos imediatamente em casa. A zona circundante é simplesmente mágica - cheia de caminhadas (marcadas e não marcadas), miradouros, lagoas, cascatas, montanhas, praias e mil e uma coisas para ver - do Gerês, a Ponte de Lima, passando por Viana do Castelo e Espanha. Há de tudo e para todos os gostos - faça sol ou faça chuva.

A cereja no topo do bolo foi, sem dúvida, o Lourenço - o grande anfitrião do Paço - que procurou, incansavelmente, garantir que nada nos faltava e que nos deu as melhores dicas!

Iremos, sem dúvida alguma, regressar!

Owner's Response: Olá. Este comentário vem com anónimo mas, se bem que a conheço e pelo que escreve, penso que tenha sido a menina Dr.ª Maria N. a escrever esta mensagem tão querida. Que bom! Se dizem ter gostado também eu imenso da vossa presença e a qual já tenho saudades. Aliás isso acontece-me quase sempre que recebo pessoas amáveis como vocês foram, mas, que vocês superaram. Muitíssimo obrigado. Um grande abraço e espero vê-los por cá mais vezes, Lourenço
