“A little piece of heaven on earth”
Reviewed 5 November 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This was our second stay at Quinta de Agriboa - and again it delivered on every aspect of our holiday. It provided a great central meeting point for family situated around the world - London, Glasgow, Colombo, Warsaw, with somethings for adults and chlidren alike.

The villa is huge...so even with 14 of us (7 adults, 7 children), we all had our own space aplenty - living, sleeping and storage.

The grounds are enclosed and enormous, the pool is built to the scale of the house, so the children were able to run about, swim and explore to their hearts content. There were plenty of chairs and loungers for everyone, so we could join in with them...or watch them with a chilled glass of vino verde.

Quinta de Agriboa, whilst secluded in a beautiful valley surrounded by farmland, tiny villages each with their own picture postcard churches, is within 10 minutes of the beautiful village of Ponte de Lima, where you can shop, eat and drink very well for not a lot of money. There are even a couple of takeaways that will deliver to the Quinta!

It's also no more than 30-40 minutes drive to the beach, less than 15 minutes to the golf course and less than an hour from the fantastic city of Porto.

However, with the views from the sun lounger, the beers and wine in the fridge and the ability to let your children play in a safe environment...there really is no need to leave the villa.

Can't wait til the next visit

“This villa offers a great opportunity to explore a beautiful and less visited area of Portugal.”
Reviewed 27 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Quinta de Agriboa provides fantastic self catering accommodation for a large group. The villa is very spacious and is well appointed and has been tastefully furnished. Set within large grounds, there is a great swimming pool ,barbecue , and outdoor seating areas. The rural location of the villa is excellent for a relaxing ,chill out style holiday. There is excellent information available in the villa about local amenities and places of interest. We sampled a number of local restaurants where we had fantastic meals, and local wine at very reasonable prices. We went on some excursions to the nearby towns of Ponte de Lima and Vianna do Costello where there was opportunity for sightseeing, shopping, and visiting bars, restaurants and cafes in historic and bustling towns. Through visiting local bars and shops we met some of the local people who we found were exceptionally friendly ,welcoming and helpful to visitors to their area. All in all the villa and the beautiful location provide location for a great holiday experience.

“Perfect location for relaxing or exploring in Northern Portugal”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Qunita de Agriboa is a beautifully appointed villa nestling in the green hills of one of Europe's hidden gems - Portugal's Minho region. For a larger group (the villa caters for up to 14 people), this is an ideal base. The accommodation is excellent, the pool is superb and the large garden area means that there is ample room for everyone to relax. Despite its seclusion, historic towns like Ponte de Lima and Viana do Costello are within easy reach, the Atlantic coast and beaches are only 30 minutes away and there are plenty of activities - golf, kayaking, horse riding, fishing - available close by. For those venturing further afield, the National Park is a stunning attraction, while the Douro region and Spain's Galicia are recommended day trips.
The relaxed pace of life is catching and long, lazy days can be rounded off with a barbecue or a visit to one of the local restaurants, where good food is real value for money.
Roads are excellent and a car is a must to make the most of the location.

“Possibly the best villa we ever stayed in”
Reviewed 6 August 2013 for a stay in July 2011

Our large extended family - four adults, four teenagers and a smaller child spent the most magical week in this amazingly roomy and well appointed villa in a lesser known part of Portugal. The accommodation was superb, including a large pool and a fab vineyard that allowed us to wind our way down to a great local bar. The bar b q on the lawn was used every night, with local fresh produce from the markets in nearby towns and villages. We lazed for a week and did very little - but there is an excellent golf course nearby and the coast is just twenty minutes away.. with some of the most spectacular and unspoiled beaches anywhere in Europe. If you are looking for a great value for money break, where you can enjoy sunshine, great food and cheap wine and family fun then this is the place for you. Btw, the local wine is about 3Euro a bottle and is brilliant.
