Apartment overview - owner's description

This unique holiday home for 4 people is situated in a quiet street with characteristic granite houses for the Minho region. You enter the house on the street side via a staircase that opens onto a covered veranda. From the hall you enter the spacious master bedroom with large double bed, built-in wardrobes and bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.
Through the internal staircase you reach the ground floor where you will find the living room with open kitchen. The kitchen is equipped with all appliances and gives access to the south-facing patio where you can enjoy the sun by the pool. On the ground floor you will find the second bedroom with two single beds that can be pushed together into a double bed. Here is also the second complete bathroom with shower, sink and toilet.

Small but fine is the theme of Casa da Memória: this holiday home is not large, but looks very spacious because of the high ceilings, the luxurious finish level and the completeness of the interior.

Casa da Memória dates back to the 16th century and has been in the possession of the family of the owner Carlos and his wife Maria for more than 300 years. In 2018 it has been radically renovated under architecture, making it a wonderfully comfortable holiday home in which many characteristic features have been retained.

Casa da Memória is an ideal base for exploring the Minho region in northern Portugal. The beautiful sandy beaches of Viana do Castelo are a half hour drive away. Ponte de Lima, the oldest city in Portugal, with its famous biweekly market and a choice of restaurants where you can eat delicious traditional Portuguese, is nearby. For culture and shopping, visit cities such as Porto, Braga with the famous Bom Jesus and Guimarães. Nature lovers can indulge in the unspoiled nature reserve Peneda do Gerês where various hiking trails have been set out.

Carlos and Maria were already waiting for us with the famous "Nata" and a bottle of Vinho Verde. What a friendly homeowners! In this house you lack nothing. Everything taken care of to perfection and all so clean. Lovely those 2 bathrooms. The patio with swimming pool and outdoor shower is lovely when it's so hot. The house is in a quiet area, about a 15-20 minute walk from Ponte da Lima. Very nice town with a lot of history, restaurants and a delicious ice cream parlor. You will also find a number of large supermarkets here. Braga, Guimaraes and Vigo (Spain) You can drive to the beach in around 30 minutes and we can certainly recommend Casa da Memoria to visit the north of Portugal.

We were very kindly welcomed by Carlos and Maria who gave us a tour of the beautiful "casa da memoria". An authentic house that has been renovated with a lot of style into a very practical holiday home. Very quiet location and yet within walking distance of the lively Ponte de Lima. There is a lot to experience in the nearby area. Walking on the coast, kayaking on the Lima, city trip to Braga or Porto ... The ideal base to discover Northern Portugal! We really enjoyed the casa and the area! Highly recommended!!

On arrival we were very well received by Carlos and Maria! They were always available if necessary. The house is neat and well maintained. There is a dishwasher, a washing machine, air conditioning .. The pool is blissful! The location of the cottage is ideal. Ponte de lima is a 15-minute walk away. Braga, Viano de Castelo, Porto, Caminha (the beach) is all to do by car.

Attractive accommodation within walking distance of Ponte de Lima center

Relaxed flight to Porto Airport (Francisco Sa Carneiro). It's about one hour to Ponte de Lima. The very kind landlords picked us up to guide us to the Casa. The Casa da Memoria is a charming, completely renovated historical building. Dishwasher, washing machine and air conditioner. Very nice pool in the courtyard. Quiet and calm location. About 10 minute walk to the lovely center of Ponte de Lima with shops, restaurants and a seaside promenade. Very good location to Porto, Barcelos, Guimarães and other historical towns. About 30 minutes by car to the Atlantic ocean. Great place for watersports. We recommend the Casa da Memoria very much!
