“Old World Charm with Modern convienience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

We just spent a week in the 2 bedroom apartment of this beautifully renovated wine an olive farm house. A wonderful place to just relax in old farm country, with rolling hills and clean air. or to base from to see Northern Portugal. Recommended by Portuguese family that has been in the area for hundred's of years. Arco's and the surrounding area is a change from the busy city of Lisbon, yet the romantic Porto is close by if you want a day out. A family owned and cared for Boutique hotel, is great for families and couples. The owners put much care and attention to detail and your comfort.- English and Spanish spoken


For a good budget friendly lunch close by, check out Roupa Velha (they speak English and Spanish) The local neighborhood is called: Padreiro (Salvador) in the municipality of Arcos de Valdevez, along the national road No. 202 (Arcos de Valdevez - Ponte de Lima) and about 500 yards from access to the IC 28. - open M-F for lunch
A car is a must, but driving the country roads through small villages is also a must.

Room Tip: they offer a free laundry room, pool and outdoor wood fired grill, or as we used it in the evening a...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stayed for two nights at Quinta do Olival and it was a most enjoyable time. The area is very unspoilt with lovely views from the Quinta. The Quinta itself has been restored with great taste but still keeping the original stone walls. The breakfast was good and the modern kitchen was available for guests to use during their stay to make drinks etc.

I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Northern Portugal. It is very near the Penedes Geres National Park which is definetly worth a visit.
