We are very glad to have chosen Quinta da Cancela for our 2-days-stay in the North of Portugal. Arthur is a very welcoming host who will give you (if you wish) a lot of very interesting insights into the life in Portugal and especially into the wine production of "vinho verde". We were very pleased by having tasted the superb... More

My family and I stayed there for two nights, and at the end we were said that we have to leave so soon. Very pleasant quinta and surroundings. It combines the history of the house and today vine activity of the owner. Recommend to the families and vine fans. Owner was very helpful in managing our problem with forgotten notebook.

Arthur is the best host we ever had and the quinta is just wonderful! Accommodation very tasteful and the food delicious! If we come back to Portugal we will definitely go here again. There is enough to see and do in the surroundings but also spend some time near the wonderful pool...

We (2 adults and teenager) stayed in this beautiful Quinta for 3 nights. First night we stayed in the stand alone cottage (charming but requires kids to climb steep stairs to the second floor loft to sleep). Next 2 days we stayed in the modern rooms in the main house. Rooms are perfect for one or a couple – loved... More

Very friendly host who was more than happy to share the history of the family house and surrounding areas. The accommodation and setting was wonderful & we wished we would have stayed there longer. Really enjoyed learning about the 'flirting window' Highly recommend this place!!!

We stayed here for only one night but wished it had been more. We felt like we were staying in a museum there were so many beautiful pieces and so much history. Arthur is the absolute perfect host, bringing us fresh lemonade and his wife's delicious cake. He is knowledgeable about so much, we decided he should be the next... More

We stayed at Quinta da Cancela for just two nights but it could easily have been much longer. It is a marvellous house with a long and interesting family history. Each of the many pieces of furniture, ,paintings,and artifacts have a story to tell.Arthur relates these tales with infectious enthusiasm and therefore ensures that the spirit of his family live...

Last juni we visited the beautiful Quinta at Arthur's. The accomodations were great, and his personal services made this stay very nice and comfortable. Arthur made great diner within regional products, and completed with a big scala of good wines. We felt like members of the royal family at Arthur's palace!! Surely visit this lovely quinta again.
