We spent two weeks here. Gabriel and Paula are very helpful and friendly if you need anything. The two newer accommodations have air con apparently and that would be my only criticism, on hot days, it would be nice to have an air con unit in the bedroom as you can't have the window open if you want the shutters...

We stayed 3 nights in June 2016. This is a very beautiful and authentic old Quinta. There are several casitas and we stayed in Acer. It was modern but fit right in and was very comfortable, functional and relaxing. We especially liked having breakfast delivered each morning to our cottage. The owners and Gabriel and Paula (their assistants) were incredibly... More

We found a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere at Quinta da Bouca. Both the house and the luxuriant garden are simply magnificent and our accommodation (we stayed in Bougainville room) was very cosy and comfortable. The bed linen were among the best I've ever slept in! Due to the still cold weather, it's a pity that we weren't able to use... More

The 4 days we have stayed at this place were remarkable to our baby boy of 2 years. Lovely and big room, delicious breakfast, and the surronding nature made those days very calm and relaxing! Staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is special.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Please change our classification to 4 stars ! Quinta da Bouca d'Arques is a beautifully restored Manor House in the Minho region of Portugal. The owners of this small chic hotel Ana and Joao have taken the road less travelled in renovating this beautiful house; they have moved away from traditional materials and have used iron, glass and concrete throughout the property creating a modern fresh feel in all of the 7 casas.AccommodationQuinta da Bouca d'Arques has 7 casas, all one-bedroom apart from the two-bedroom Casa da Lavanda. Antique wooden and wrought iron beds are mixed with power showers and contemporary colour palettes. Each casa has its own balcony, living room, outside area and kitchenette and all come with LCD TVs with Satellite, CD & DVD players and WiFi. Two of these luxury cottages have air-conditioning. Breakfast is prepared and left in the fridge and fresh bread is delivered every day to the room. This ensures that guests can enjoy breakfast at their leisure wherever they like.ActivitiesIn a corner of this small hotel there is a charming small wooden house where children can play. Beaches are just 15 minutes away by car and are just as good as the beaches in the South of Portugal. The swimming pool is in the garden and is treated with salt rather than chlorine. Mountain bikes are supplied to guests and there are 3 great golf courses within 30 minutes of Quinta da Bouca d'Arques. For those who wish to be pampered, take a relaxing massage. ... more   less
