We stayed at Quinta da Bouca for 6 nights in late September, it's easily accessible from Porto airport in less than an hour but you feel far further removed from the hustle & bustle of city life. The house is situated in reasonably large grounds with fields of vines to the front and sloping woodland to the rear. We were... More

The perfect hidden gem. Booked this for my fiancés birthday. We stayed at the Jacarandá house and felt tucked away in the middle of nature. The house was lovely and the surroundings were just perfect. The beautiful gardens, with colourful flowers and the main yellow house just make this place a little hidden fairytale spot - I could totally live... More

I can't say enough wonderful things about this place. I am so glad that in a week in Portugal, we cut short city time (and the cities are great, really, but also packed with tourists and a bit overwhelming) to spend three amazingly restful days and nights here. Check-in was a long and thorough process. We got a tour of... More

This is a lovely place to stay. We had a most relaxing holiday and particularly enjoyed the pool, and natural surroundings. Character, charm and understated elegance. It is very well managed by Joao and his polite, friendly staff who are on hand to advise on local restaurants, beaches etc. We stayed in the 2 bedroomed Lavender cottage which was well... More

One of the most beautiful houses in Viana. The rooms are really nice and super confortable. Everything was super clean and I will definitely go back. Joao, the owner, is really nice and gives the best recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.

We have just returned from a week's stay at Quinta da Bourca D'Arques and we were very sorry to leave. Well equipped cottages, with courtyards to relax in surrounded by vinyards and green forests to walk/run in. Lovely big pool with clear spring water was set slightly to one side and no noise from the pool ever bothered us. No... More
