This beautiful place, tucked out of the way is a delight for the soul. The silence, the casual style and the perfect setting, make you relax totally by.But just 10 minutes drive and you are in the heart of Vienna do Castello.

Really thorough welcome, carefully shown everything and given helpful local information. Shown around the Quinta showing what was available to us. The units had different styles - we chose a modern pod and loved the character, light and airy with all we needed! Shower was particularly great! Best of five we had during our holiday! Our outside area looked out... More

We left Quinta da Bouca d'Arques about two weeks ago and I'm back to normal mode cooking some cakes in my Wiltshire kitchen.

Perfect place to rest and recharge your batteries. Beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean. House location is great, only 40min drive from Porto, very easy to reach. Ask the nice owner for advice regarding restaurants and bars nearby, you will not be disappointed.

We enjoyed our stay at Quinta da Bouca d'Arques. The home and the grounds are very nice. It is a little residential as you approach the property but it is then nicely secluded behind some old stone walls and vineyards. Joao the owner is extremely pleasant and helpful. He took interest in our stay and was very attentive. It was... More

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
