Property Info

A Casa do Anquião fica a escassos três quilómetros da Vila de Ponte de Lima e está inserida num dos extremos do Campo de Golfe de Ponte de Lima, entre os fairway 3, 4 e 5. O conjunto edificado é constituído por uma casa principal e por dois corpos de anexos agrícolas. O solar rural é marcadamente seiscentista, ainda sem o aparato, ostensivo do barroco do século XVIII, mas com uma pureza de linhas e proporções que denotam o cuidado erudito do projecto.

Beautiful Property with Some Quirks

Reviewed 14 february, 2020

We spent one night here. We had trouble checking in, as the woman didn’t speak English. We got by with Spanish. The hotel is teeming with antiques. Our room was enormous, though the bed was small, a double, and the pillow substandard for this property. The place was immaculate. Breakfast was great, with fresh bread, fresh orange juice and eggs. The road to the place is quite bumpy. Internet was nonexistent. They should have some lighting for nights, as we had trouble finding the keyhole upon returning from dinner.

Great Value in an Atmospheric 17th Century Estate

Reviewed 23 october, 2019

We stayed at the Casa de Anquião for 2-nights while exploring the area & Peneda-Gerês National Park in late-Sep (70 €/night). Located 4 km from Ponte de Lima in a rural area and (improbably) beside a golf course, the casa had its origins as a 17th century estate and was impressively atmospheric and ancient. On arrival, you see an enormous cross-topped gate flanked by 2 gatehouse rooms, then a flagstone praça behind which is the casa perched on a hill overlooking the pool, its private orchard and lake & the golf course beyond. Everywhere there are atmospheric touches – crosses above roof peaks, a private grainary, huge urns, tiled roofs, masses of onions & garlic drying in a shed. And inside there is more – antique furnishings, bronze statues, muskets hanging from the walls in the salon, hallways and breakfast area. Our room, in the stone-walled gatehouse, was no exception. Entering, we were astounded by the huge sitting area with its soaring, wood-beamed roof, fireplace, tile floors, period painting & wall china, & antique wood chests, with just a hint of wood smoke in the air. You would expect such a space to be dark, but 3 shuttered wood windows & a patio door let in enough light to make it open and welcoming. At the far end of the room were a pair of stone stairs, one leading to a tiny kitchen (hot plate, sink, mini-refrigerator), the other to the large bedroom with its comfortable queen bed & side tables, chest of drawers, and closet. The bathroom, en suite to the bedroom, was large with a bathtub/shower and a small cabinet with plenty of space for your toiletries. The atmospheric nature of the space is difficult to overstate - late at night, I simply sat in the dim light, drinking in the feeling of sitting in a huge, stone walled room where the windows & doors could still be barred with wood posts that fit into slots in the stone, thinking of days it was all necessary to repel invaders. On the grounds, the pool was large, well maintained, & had plenty of loungers (a bit too cold at this time of year, though). Breakfast was delicious, with a variety of cold-cuts, bread & buns, coffee, fresh orange juice, coffee, as well as hot food – mini-pancakes, scrambled eggs & bacon. Internet was available, but only in the salon if the main house. You need to go to town for dinner (and anything else), a 10-min While the casa was identified in our GPS, it was still a bit difficult to find. If you approach from Ponte de Lima, the main road south winds up through the hills then, just as it begins downward turn right at the sign for the hotel and watch for a second sign that directs you through a stone gate. It doesn't look like a hotel, but if you follow the dirt road to the right, it will lead to the reception. If you are in the area, this was a must-stay destination with astonishing value for the price. Highly recommended.

Lots of Charm

Reviewed 21 august, 2017

All good as the other reviewers have stated but we had a poor room. Small double bed 1.4 metres no ventilation to speak of and little natural light. No air-conditioning and internet in one sitting area that was always locked when we returned after dinner. Avoid the west wing if you can.

Charming, luxurious, quiet, affordable

Reviewed 30 april, 2015

This is a converted grand manor-style farmhouse, with suites of rooms in their own little buildings. We thought we were just renting a room but got bedroom, sitting room and bathroom together - all within an independant stone building with beautiful historical features. The website says the staff speak English, but when we were there it was one of various ladies being caretaker of the place, and none of them spoke English. However it didn't matter because they were REALLY lovely, generous, patient and went out of their way to get us anything we might want or need. And they were also happy to show guests around the grand main building itself with its many gorgeous restored details and decoration - take a camera! The buildings were beautiful, the view of mountains and trees, and part of the golf course was heavenly and peaceful. The rooms themselves were clean, breezy, and a joy to be in. Though I'd worry the stone walls might feel a bit cold in the winter months, but for summer /early Autumn, perfect. Only breakfast is provided here, they don't have the facility for more - but Ponte de Lima itself is stuffed with amazing (and cheap) restaurants. They do serve breakfast though, and it's glorious. Freshly squeezed orange juice (literally, made specifcally for you when you come in for breakfast) as well as a myriad of cereals and things to put on toast, eggs and bacon if you want it, and a pile of freshly made pancakes! Just writing this makes me want to go back again!

Solar charmoso

Reviewed 9 september, 2019

Solar muito bonito ladeado pela serra e por uma vinha, fazendo a vista lembrar a Toscânia. Interiores das zonas comuns muito bem decorados. Excelente pequeno-almoço. Quartos pouco confortáveis e a necessitar de melhoramentos. Cama pequena e casa de banho bastante degradada. Solar antigo mas sem contacto humano. Wi-Fi muito fraco.
