Casa da Memória
Holiday home with private pool in the village of Santa Comba near Ponte de Lima
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.
