This is a beautyful estate to relax, read, be or tour the north of Portugal. Close to many beautyful portugal towns you can perfectly use the Quinta as a base and relax in the evenings or tage days off and spend time at the pool. More than rural tourism, you will have your own house and even get breakfast there,... More

Had an amazing 5 nights here even though it rained almost every day. Perfect for a peaceful and relaxing get away. The cottage was furnished to a very high standard and the staff were great. The gardens and surrounding woods were beautiful and one of the nicest hotel pools I've ever used. Will definitely return again

One night was definitely not enough here. We stopped over on our way home from Galicia, and wished we'd booked for much longer. Our 'room' (which was actually more like staying in an aristocratic villa) was a mix of beautiful, comfortable, grand and relaxing.

Nothing disappoints at Quinta da Bouca d'Arques, except for us a little more sun would have been good. Everyone at the Quinta works hard to ensure all those things within human control are perfect.
