What a magical place.
We are 4 friends We went to Monte Novo da Ribeira. To spend a few days of vacation, rest, eat well, sleep, escape from routine. It couldn't have gone any better. The house is incredible, much bigger than it looks in the photos. With all the necessary amenities to spend a beautiful day. It is located at a perfect distance from the nearest villages. Not far, but also not too close. So much during the day it has a magical calm, even more at night. The entire outdoor environment transmits peace and balance with nature. There are neighbors with dogs that usually show up at lunch and dinner, very well trained and super intelligent. We loved their company, we even named it. Greetings to Félix, Faísca and Joel. These are only 3 that appear the most of the times. Everything went beautifully, and we would like to leave a note. On the last day when we left, we discovered that we had a flat tire. We also noticed that the spare tire was not the correct one for the car. Fortunately, a lady came to clean the house and offered to go with us to Ourique to change the tire. After that and with the problem solved, one of us wanted to pay for the help and the Lady refused. Thank you for your availability and kindness. To Marion and Rieks. Thank you very much for the opportunity to have the house available to us, we hope to have been a good guest. We would love to leave it for the year again. David, Bruno, Rodrigo, Peixoto.
