Fabulous period property with friendly and helpful owner!

  • 5 of 5

Managed by the very friendly owner Alvaro, whose family has owned this house for hundreds of years and who feature in several original portraits around the many beautifully-decorated rooms, this house was a real delight. Every room revealed fabulous period furniture and style, and all the many bedrooms were individually designed and presented. Huge inglenook fireplace in the dining room, where the tasty breakfasts with homemade jam were served, snug room with pool table, drawing room - so many great places in the house to explore. Outside, walnut and orange trees line the garden which leads to Alvaro's new croquet lawn (in progress!) and the excellent pool.

All in all, we couldn't be more delighted with this accommodation and will be back. Thanks Alvaro!

A wonderful old manor house in easy walking distance to the charming town of Ponte de Lima

  • 5 of 5

A stunning combination of luxury and authentic Portuguese hospitality, this is a rare opportunity to stay in a beautiful restored house bursting with history and antique furniture matched with wonderfully comfortable beds and well appointed bathrooms. The grounds and swimming pool are beautifully maintained and the two terraces are wonderful places to relax and read. The breakfasts provided by our hosts were a great start to the day and we also enjoyed two memorable meals one of which was cooked in the 400 year old oven, next to a chimney you can stand up in! The hosts were the perfect balance between attention and leaving us to get on with our own thing. They are full of interesting local knowledge if you want it and happy to let you relax if you don't. We would heartily recommend the Casa de Cruzeiro to anyone looking for an exceptional holiday.

Owner's Response: It was really a pleasure having James, his family and friends at our place. We have them to thank for a particularly nice week in this very pleasant activity of sharing our house and our conservation efforts with guests that really appreciate them. We would certainly recommend James to other hosts and would be very glad to have them again.

Particulièrement accueillant, service parfait et discret.

Atmosphère en harmonie entre la belle maison et l'accueil.

Nous avons pu partager de belles parties de croquet avec le propriétaire.

On a envie d'y revenir et bien évidemment nous recommandons ce solaire.

Owner's Response: Nous avons eu le privilège d’avoir accueilli chez nous la famille de Mme. Véronique C. pendant deux semaines; sa présence a été toujours discrète et très agréable, prêtant à notre maison de famille une atmosphère véritablement familiale, tranquille et harmonieuse; on en gardera le meilleur souvenir.
