We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage in early June. The place was peaceful and nicely appointed. The internal stairs are a bit strange in that the pattern of the brickwork gives a mosaic effect and can be tricky to navigate The breakfast was tremendous (actually too much food.....we stored the leftovers in the fridge for a late night snack)....

A beautiful, peaceful location but only ten minutes from Viana do Castelo. Plus points: Location, setting. Decor and furnishings. Breakfast (delivered in a wicker basket to your door each morning). The (non-chlorinated) pool. Friendly, welcoming staff. Plenty of sun but plenty of shade for those that want it. Did I mention the peace and quiet? Less good: The beds are... More

We had a superb weekend at Quinta da Bouca d'Arques, great hospitality by João and Marlene. Just a short trip from the Porto airport and well located near the beach. We'll definitely come again when we have the chance! Victor

We were captured by the magic of this elegant and truly Portuguese aristocratic venue. You can choose from a charming basement suite to a modern fully equipped studio or a complete and totally independent country house with balcony. Various leisure options are offered and the gentleman-host is dedicated to make you feel like home. I strongly recommend it.

It is a perfect destination for a weekend away from the city. Very peaceful, pleasing and delighting. You cannot miss it. Beautiful swimming pool area. Perfect base to visit Viana do Castelo (only 15 minutes away). Just go now!

This was a perfect place to end our holiday through France, Spain and Portugal. A beautiful house, full of history, in natural surroundings. We were allocated the cottage which is beneath the owner's living accommodation and were astonished at how much space we had. The interior was rather dark which meant we sometimes had to have lights on in daylight... More

This place is completely idyllic - set in a fantastic location in the midst of vineyards and with unspoiled views for miles around. It's part of an old country estate and you can still feel the history all around you, although it now has plenty of stylish, modern design twists. We stayed in Casa Lavanda - perfect with 2 small...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Quinta da Bouça d'Arques is a beautifully restored Manor House in the Minho region of Portugal. The owners of this small chic hotel Ana and João have taken the road less travelled in renovating this beautiful house; they have moved away from traditional materials and have used iron, glass and concrete throughout the property creating a modern fresh feel in all of the 7 casas.AccommodationQuinta da Bouca d'Arques has 7 casas, all one-bedroom apart from the two-bedroom Casa da Lavanda. Antique wooden and wrought iron beds are mixed with power showers and contemporary colour palettes. Each casa has its own balcony, living room, outside area and kitchenette and all come with LCD TVs with Satellite, CD & DVD players and WiFi. Two of these luxury cottages have air-conditioning. Breakfast is prepared and left in the fridge and fresh bread is delivered every day to the room. This ensures that guests can enjoy breakfast at their leisure wherever they like.ActivitiesIn a corner of this small hotel there is a charming small wooden house where children can play. Beaches are just 15 minutes away by car and are just as good as the beaches in the South of Portugal. The swimming pool is in the garden and is treated with salt rather than chlorine. Mountain bikes are supplied to guests and there are 3 great golf courses within 30 minutes of Quinta da Bouça d'Arques. For those who wish to be pampered, take a relaxing massage. ... more   less
