Sublime and memorable

Reviewed 13 october, 2018

The Casa da Portela de Sampriz was more than we could hope for. Situated just outside of Penedes- Geres National Park, we were surround by amazing natural beauty. The Casa da Portela looked out upon incredible views. The manor is beautiful, authentic, decorated with pieces that have served generations. The rooms honor the past while creating a sense of serenity and calm with modern comforts. The hostess provided us with wonderful recommendations and great maps for hiking. Our walks were filled with great appreciation of the beauty of the area. As I am nervous on small roads at night, we would enjoy an evening snack (our own) with one of the wines they provided. There is a wonderful gathering room where one can play games (we did), chat, or watch TV. One evening we were able to arrange dinner on site. The kindness of the owner and the attention by the staff given to every detail make this memorable. Had we known how amazing this would be we would have booked 4 nights instead of three. We were so very sad to leave and cannot imagine anything living up to this experience.


Beautiful Casa

Reviewed 10 july, 2018

We are always looking for unique places where to say, and this is one beautiful casa. The owners were very hospitable and we got useful information of National Park routes and restaurants nearby. The village Sampriz is about 10 mins drive from Ponte de Barca where all nearest restaurants are. Village's church above the Casa and the Ruínas do Castelo da Nóbrega were one beautiful spot in the village. Due to rainy and very foggy weather visits to National Park were not successful and could not enjoy the beautifully laid swimming pool area either, pity. First room we got was very large and beautiful, but probably due rainy weeks it was a bit damp and after first night we got another room without that feeling. Otherwise the rooms are perfectly clean and kept that way throughout our stay. Outside the rooms there is large sitting area for guests. Breakfast has everything you needed. Would really like to see this Casa again with sunshine and enjoy the pool area, maybe some day?


What an amazing place

Reviewed 24 october, 2017

Thanks to the history of the place, its outstanding renovation, the nice setting in the landscape, the excellent interior and exterior - and the hospitality of Leonor and Alberto, this was one of the most remarkable stays of our trip through the North of Portugal. Upon ringing the bell at the big wooden gate of the property, Leonor and Alberto take you into the historic walls of their old family property. Our stay started with a very kind introduction to the house and its historic structures by Alberto. The rooms are equipped at a very high standard and you feel immediately at home and enchanted, not at last in the common room among the old granite walls of the former winery's basement. In the morning, Leonor makes sure that you cannot leave without having tasted the many little treats of a Portuguese breakfast including home baked cake. The place is perfectly located next to the Peneda-Geres National Park and Alberto will not fail to recommend routes, sights, and restaurants. Upon return, enjoy a bottle of refreshing local Vinho Verde at the pool as well as a gorgeous sunset over the hilly country of the Lima river. We just stayed for two nights ... having wished that we had planned for more. We have a personal pledge to return!


Quite and Cozy

I was in Casa da Portela de Sampriz with friends. The owners offered a typical Arroz de Sarrabulho. I want to repeat this experience! Its very quite and cozy decoration. Its also near from Genres National Park


Simply amazing

Reviewed 4 september, 2015

This house is located in the lovely hills about 10 mins. drive from Ponte da Barca, so still easy to go for a dinner to the town, yet stay nicely secluded in a quiet nature. Upon arrival, the landlord took us for a small tour through the manor, explaining the history of it and showing all the preserved original parts (black kitchen, wine press, tower foundations etc.) Everything is renovated to an absolute perfection with an attention to details. As the landlord´s family owned this manor for generations, he´s obviously proud of the building and it´s reflected in the efforts that must have been made to rebuild it in such spectacular way. Room was large, comfortable and splendid as rest of the manor. The bed in it used to belong to two Portuguese queens, there´s even a small museum (or rather a showcase) of their original belongings. Breakfast were rich, anything we asked for. Both the landlord and his wife were very nice all the time, he even kept on apologizing that there´s and ash in the pool (there was a huge forest fire raging quite close) although it was clearly impossible to do anything about it at the time. Maybe it is just for the opening season (the opened for business in May 2015), but the price was really surprising compared to the value the offer here. Luxurious stay with attentive hosts on a lovely place – you can hardly ask for more.
