Welcome to Travessia do Sol

Overlooking the enchanting Lima river, stands Travessia do Sol, a contemporary and eco-friendly house with a natural pool and gardens.
Our guesthouse is located in the green northwest of Portugal, in the village of Gemieira, close to the historical city of Ponte de Lima.
The Lima river flows between the Peneda-Gerês Natural Park and the ocean. Our eco resort is ideally located for visiting, walking and practicing sports such as kayaking, mountain biking, hiking,…

An eco-lodge dreamed of and prepared with great dedication to the principles of Permaculture and regenerative culture. A space to Be, Present. Taking care of ourselves in order to be able to take care of others and the earth, in this nutritious cycle that moves and fulfils us.

Ralf and Claude acquired the house in 2020. To transform and modernize it to their taste, in an eco-friendly way, with lush vegetation and landscaping, they had the help of a whole group of motivated and skillful people. This included their daughter Déborah, who had already been living in Portugal for some time, plus local craftsmen. 
The pandemic delayed completion of the project. But with tenacity and the support of the team, the house welcomed its first guests in May, 2022.

Breath deep the fragrant air, hear the sounds of nature…

  You are at Travessia do Sol.
