A Team that loves to Imagine


Casa de Ribeira is runned by Graça and Paula, two Portuguese women who will Welcome You in their home with loads of Positive Energy, Love and Care, personal attention and a good sense of humour. The Villa is a ‘stress free zone’, where time stops, the slow pace is encouraged and each Guest is treated as a Friend. To them, starting this Guest House together is a Dream coming true.

Graça studied International Affairs and she got a job at a bank soon after graduation. After building a career of 26 years as a banker, she decided it was time to shift her professional path. Her aspiraton is to embrace a new challenge in Life, setting a meaningful example as a legacy to her 3 children.

Our motto: “The only permanent thing in life is Change!”
