Why Jorge Lima chose Arcos de Valdevez

At the very moment we glance at the each ray of sunshine entering the foliage, at the sky reflecting in the idle waters of Lima, at each detail of a picturesque village exhaling centuries of history… At the very moment we feel the wind bringing the fragrance of orange blossom and the sun embracing us… At the very moment we stop to clearly listen to all the sounds that invite us to stay… we feel this indescribable eagerness of sharing these sensations with the rest of the world! We wanted to maintain its identity, its wisdom created by the time that went by it. But we also wanted it to be contemporary as it demanded. And our first house was born, and now its also yours!

What makes this house unique

Casas da Lola is your shelter, the place that welcomes you and pampers you after you have been enchanted, as we have, by the forces of nature that are felt with soft intensity here. Consisting of two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a social area with kitchenette, Casa da Lola has a decoration that rejuvenates tradition and rusticity, integrating them in a comfortable, up-to-date and inspiring environment.

Lovely modern property yet retains character and with stunning views

  • 4 of 5

A relaxing stay in a quiet yet stunning location. A place to wind down away from the crowds

Worth more like 4.5 stars (which the software won't allow) with the only drawback being the distance to amenities such as food shops

Beautiful home, stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Casas da Lola and wholeheartedly recommend it. The house is beautiful...the terrace is lovely for enjoying drinks in the evening...the pool is great for a plunge after a hike...and a thousand-year-old monastery sits basically in the front yard. The surrounding area is breathtaking. Jorge and Vanessa were extremely friendly and helpful. If you are spending any amount of time in northern Portugal or Peneda-Gerês National Park this makes a fantastic home base.

We are four recently retired folk (2 couples) who stayed 3 nights at Casa da Lola in early April `16.

On arrival we, the first UK visitors, were greeted by the owners Jorge and Vanessa who showed us round the delightful property set on a hillside overlooking the Lima valley and river.

As this is a new build everything was fresh and clean, superb bath and shower rooms with quality linen and towels. Beds were comfortable with an abundance of pillows, duvets and cushions.

The quality extended into the kitchen area, which although small was adequate for our needs.

Unusually, there was comfortable seating for all four adults, good wifi and TV. So often the seating is for 3 and the wifi is poor.

Although the weather was poor it did not stop us exploring the beautiful and interesting area.

Access to the property is down a long cobbled narrow road but after the first drive somehow it gets shorter and easier! ( there is also closer parking on the top road and a short walk)

A swimming pool will be available soon but that is for the summer months!

The old monastery just below is now a sort of parish church with a bell that strikes the hour but it is not loud and is unobtrusive.

Jorge and Vanessa are a lovely couple, both spoke good English and responded quickly to query texts and said fair well to us in person, a nice touch!

If you are looking for a stay in a quality property with beautiful surroundings, look no further, this is it!

Owner's Response: Hello Philip (and fellows:-) ) Thank you very much for the review. It was a pleasure to have you staying in Casa da Lola. You are very cheerful guests and it was nice to have chatted a little bit with you! Oh, and thanks for the flowers, it was a kind gesture. Hope to see you again! Best regards, Vanessa & Jorge

Quiet and peaceful place in the north

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist ein schöner Mix aus moderner und alter Bausubstanz, aus dem Wohnzimmer hat man einen herrlichen Blick über das Flusstal und das kleine Kloster. Mit dem Auto über eine enge Zufahrt zu erreichen, liegt das Haus mitten im Dorf. Die Ausstattung ist komplett, es gibt 2 Bäder und eine Zentralheizung. Jorge und Vanessa haben uns sehr nett empfangen und uns mit vielen Tipps über Wanderungen, Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten versorgt. Bei schönen Wetter gibt es eine wundervolle Dachterrasse und sogar einen kleinen Pool, noch eine Terrasse höher. Alle Zimmer sind modern und liebevoll eingerichtet und dekoriert.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, vielen Dank an Vanessa und Jorge!

Un séjour enchanteur dans le Portugal profond

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette magnifique maison récemment rénovée. La décoration est de très bon goût, les matériaux de qualité. La terrasse et la piscine situées au dessus de la maison sont très agréables. La vue est magnifique sur le village et la vallée.

Le Parc et les villages aux alentours sont vraiment à visiter pour se rendre compte de la vie reculée de cette partie du Portugal.

Prévoir de garer la voiture dans le village à 200m de la maison car chemins d'accès très étroits.

L''accueil de notre couple d'hôtes a été parfait.

Lieu vraiment à recommander.
