We spent 6 nights at the Quinta da Boca d'Argues and we very much regretted that we had to leave. The setting. hospitality, breakfasts on our terrace, the vineyard, forest, local restaurant, historic towns and adventures on mountain bikes through ancient, narrow streets and villages were wonderful. Owners and staff were exceptionally welcoming.

This was one of the best nights I have slept. Absolute silence. This place is one of the nicest to explore the North of Portugal. The architecture is traditional yet blending with the modern in a discreet and enchanting manner. The granite charm of northern Portuguese manor houses blending with a discrete sheen of steel. The rooms look out on... More

This was not my first visit to Bouça d'Arques. And what is more remarkable, in my view, is that at each visit my opinion improves mostly because João and his team are continuously doing their best to improve the quality of customer's experience looking after each and every detail.

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
