Description from owner

Description

Quinta de Agriboa is a former farmhouse, built in the late 18th century, which has been beautifully and sensitively restored. The Quinta is surrounded by hectares of vineyards in a beautiful valley that catches the sun from dawn until sunset.

All of the original building has been preserved with restorative stonework that perfectly matches the old walls. The year-long restoration project was filmed for a series of BBC documentaries, broadcast in spring 2009, where the programme makers commented on the "breathtaking skill of local craftsmen".

Location description from owner

Northern Portugal region

The Minho region in the north of Portugal is one of the undiscovered gems of Europe. It has been dubbed the "new Tuscany" by some travel writers.

Quinta de Agriboa is close to beaches, a national park with stunning scenery and several of the oldest and most interesting towns

Location description from owner

Northern Portugal region

The Minho region in the north of Portugal is one of the undiscovered gems of Europe. It has been dubbed the "new Tuscany" by some travel writers.

Quinta de Agriboa is close to beaches, a national park with stunning scenery and several of the oldest and most interesting towns in Portugal. The Spanish border, and the region of Galicia, is only fifteen minutes away on the motorway.

Ponte de Lima

Ponte de Lima, the oldest town in Portugal, takes its name from a 1000 year old Roman bridge that crosses the Lima river. Narrow cobbled streets, historic buildings and atmospheric pubs and restaurants - this is a great place to wander.

In Ponte de Lima you can choose from: Che Guevara Bar (interesting, eclectic clientele, centre of Ponte de Lima), Chusso Bar ( or 'Umbrella Bar', up the hill and next door, frequented by a younger crowd, late night dancing downstairs), Sports Bar (across the lane from Restaurante Beco das Salas, downstairs live football matches, upstairs pool and darts with locals).

Ponte de Lima offers a wide variety of restaurants, from everyday meals to fine dining. Compared to the rest of Europe, they are offer exceptionally good value. People visit the traditional Beco Das Selas restaurant from all over the region to taste 'sarabulho', a local delicacy featuring every edible part of a pig.

Many shops can be found in nearby Ponte de Lima, including small boutiques and coffee shops. Food shopping in this region is one of the great joys for those who enjoy cooking. Local markets provide the chance to buy produce direct from locals, produced on their own quintas. Ponte de Lima also has several excellent butchers, and two supermarkets with impressive fish and shellfish counters. For wine, the supermarkets are well-stocked with an extensive range of regional wines.

“A fantastic villa in a beautiful location”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2016

We were a party of 14, crossing 4 generations, and couldn't have been more impressed. Plenty of space indoors and outdoors, with a great pool and stunning views in all directions. Excellent,spacious bedrooms.John and Sergio could not have been more helpful. Never having visited the region before, we enjoyed excursions to Ancora, Viana, Bom Jesus do Monte and, best of all, Ponte de Lima, a charming town 10 minutes drive away. Food and wine both cheap and first rate. We shall certainly book again!

Owner's reply: Tank you very much for your review. Delighted that you had a good time and that you intend to return to the villa. all the best John
