The Bento Novo is an unusual place. If you like going back in time when on holiday, be with friends and family, and be surrounded by a stunning garden, this will work well for you.

We were mixed group of up to 14 and for that number the facilities, rooms etc worked out well. The place is huge and you’ll find so many magical spaces, in and out doors, for everybody to find their spot. The natural ‘pool’ was perfect to stand in and cool off.
In the evenings we often had the BBQ blazing and cooked up a storm.
Breakfast with fresh bread, eggs (from the quinto’s own chickens), and unlimited fresh orange juice set us up every day. The house was kept spotlessly and we felt both save and homely.

Getting there, just follow the big blue signs ‘ tourismo rual’, they lead you straight in. 15 min drive out of Viana and supermarket ‘pingo doce’ even closer.

On the down side the TV did not get us to see Wimbledon- extra costs for cable. As we were blessed with extremely hot weather, an extra fridge to cool the drinks would have been much appreciated. You will need a car and the walking from the house is a bit limited.

This place is a little bit out of town, but worth the distance. It's a gorgeous old property, beautiful granite foundations, very sympathetically restored, comfy rooms, good beds. You get to use the kitchen, with good appliances and also a lovely TV-reading room. When we visited, we were the only ones in the big house, so it was so quiet. The gardens are quite large and with a variety of edible fruit and nuts, that we were encouraged to help ourselves with. The internet was down while we were there, but there is a small cafe, a couple of kilometres down the road with excellent connection, and good coffee too!

“Charm, comfort and quiet”
Reviewed August 8, 2010 for a stay in July 2010

A beautiful place with an amazing garden, nice to read your books, with all the comforts you need, including a kitchen where you can prepare your own food if you're in for some veggies after all the meat in the local restaurants :-) Its 20 minutes outside of Viana do Castelo and we were very lucky to be there when the local summer festivities were taking place. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.
