We liked this place. It was calm, far from the crowds. There are many places to visit in about 1h-2h drive max from the house. Ponte de Lima was not so good as expected, though. The house is big, a bit old (including the interior), but it is part of its charm. The place to go if you are looking for a stay with a big group of friends/family and/or to rest/read books/stay by the pool.
