At the heart of Ribeira Lima Valley, in one of the most bucolic and picturesque villages in Minho, stands this palatial house with its grand interiors, whose impressive entrance is made through a gate surmounted by a cross, evidence of its clerical ownership in the 19th century.
In the exterior, the dominant colour is the green of the landscape that bears witness of the quietness of the agricultural environment. The house is surrounded by latticework and groves of proud and inviting trees that provide the tranquility of the rural life.
Set in fragrant gardens and vineyards, it is a short walk from the fluvial beach of the Lima River, where you can fish, swim, read or just dream surrounded by the quiet atmosphere. Or, you may simply wish to stay by the estate s welcoming private poolside.
