We stayed in Magnolia's House for 3 nights and loved everything. The accommodation was first class, bedroom and bathroom excellent , and the living/dining area small but functional. You are provided with a coffee machine, kettle, microwave, fridge etc. so that you can avoid driving in the evening if you wish. The breakfast was delivered in a big wicker basket... 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.

Just spent a few nights, and, by the way, a nice dinner with the owner in the old family house. If you are looking for a beautiful, exclusive place away from the beach buzz, do not search anywhere else. Majestic and poetic alley leading to the house. Splendid trees, nice rooms/house and attentive staff. In the back garden, swimming pool... More

We spent two weeks here. Gabriel and Paula are very helpful and friendly if you need anything.

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
