The place is very quiet and peaceful, with great green spaces around for a small walk or just relax. Breakfast is very good and it gets to you in a nice basket, which is fun. Too cold to use the pool, but looking forward to do so, on a next trip. The rooms are very comfortable and if you plan... More

We stayed at Jacarandá room only for one night in January under rain and cold weather. Off course we didn't benefit from the full experience Quinta da Bouça can provide. The Quinta is very beautiful even if the vineyards were without leaves, the 300 years house was under a grey light and we didn't had time to enjoy the "eira"... More

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.
