Client Reviews for Casa da Cuca


This was our third holiday with Vintage Travel and our first to Northern Portugal and I have to say this has surpassed the others. The hospitality and generosity shown by Carlos and Madalena has been exceptional. Casa da Cuca is a beautiful house and we have felt very much at home. We have enjoyed touring round various parts of Northern Portugal and will definitely be back. Ponte de Lima is a delightful town with so much to offer. Having the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of life in the UK and escape to such a peaceful and welcoming area has been delightful. We will miss the tranquility of Casa da Cuca and it's beautiful gardens. we are thinking of our next visit already. Looking forward to our return.

I don't really know how to express our feelings about our stay at Casa da Cuca. From the first moment we arrived we were made so welcome and at home. The owners have done everything to make our stay so wonderful. The villa is perfect, the gardens beautiful and the pool so much fun in the sun. Fresh bread rolls every day and lovely fruit. This is our first visit to Portugal but it will not be our last. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. I will be recommending Casa da Cuca to all our friends and family, but not until I make my booking for next year. Again I want to thank Carlos and his mother for everything, we have never received such warmth and generosity before. Many, many thanks

We've loved our stay at Casa da Cuca. Beautiful old villa, lovely gardens and pool. Thank you for your warm welcome and the daily bread. We love this area of Portugal - such lovely countryside and people!

The best villa we have stayed in. The pool was great on hot sunny days. The pool table great on damper days. Excellent hosts - a very thoughtful collection of gifts at the start of the week. Thank you for a great holiday.

Wonderful villa! Love it here, had a fabulous holiday. Perfectly kept villa, garden and pool! Thank you so much for the delicious bread and wine. We were very well looked after and loved the area. The restaurants in Ponte de Lima were very enjoyable and it is a pretty town to visit, as is Viana do Castelo. The Monte de Santa Luzia was definitely worth a visit. Thanks again and we will be back.

This has been an excellent holiday. The house and surrounding grounds were perfect for our stay. The pool was ideal or our 6 yr old son, who is just learning to swim. Casa da Cuca is in a great location, making it easy to get to the coast to the west and to the mountains in the east. It's also perfectly situated for a day trip into Galicia. The local town of Ponte de Lima had everything we needed. Plus there was the bonus of a canoeing event on the River Lima and the horse fair during our middle weekend. Thank you to Carlos and his family for making us feel welcome and for the lovely bread and wine.

We have had a lovely stay here at Casa da Cuca. Although the weather has been changeable it had prompted us to explore the area....we watched the canoe marathon on the river at Ponte de Lima, visited Ponte de Barca and into Peneda-Geres National Park, up to the castle at Lindoso and back through Soajo (all beautiful). We drank a lot of Carlos' lovely wine and managed to BBQ and enjoy the pool most days. Overall we loved staying here and hope to return again. Thank you for letting us share your lovely house and for the delivery of fresh rolls every day!

This has been a real relaxing treat. We have had some excellent fish lunches at Vila Praia de Ancorra. Stunning scenery and the lovely town of Ponte de Lima. Thank you for a lovely time Carlos and Madelena. Your hospitality was great.

We have been renting holiday properties for over thirty years and this was one of the nicest and best equipped we have ever rented. The owners were particularly pleasant and helpful.

What a beautiful place, so relaxing and calm. Just the thing to see you through the year. Casa da Cuca is glorious, take's you back in time. We have enjoyed the ambience and quietness, lazing by the pool and have loved Ponte de Lima, with the market and strolling along the bridge and riverside. Thank you for letting us share your wonderful home, we hope to visit again soon.
