“Owners wonderful. Views amazing!”
Reviewed August 12, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our journey in discovering Quinta de Cartemil began last October 2015. While searching the internet, we spotted this wonderful place. The photographs were amazing, and after having made several enquiries, we secured a booking with the initial deposit. Our expectations were high, I must admit.
During our stay we cannot say how our expectations have been exceeded beyond comparison. Our welcome was so warm and the Menezes family are just wonderful in their kindness, hospitality and generosity. The "soul" of the place, it's ambience, the views, the fertility of the land and the healthy fresh air and the Portuguese people speak of what this world should be like.
We have such lovely memories of our time there. Our grandchildren have loved it, our daughter and son-in-law have just adored the time to relax, have fun and just take a long big sigh, which reflects the beauty of our whole experience.
We cannot express our gratitude enough. We would very much like to come back someday if circumstances allow. We will be speaking to everyone we know about this week and it shall be embedded in our memories forever.

“Beautiful restored medieval farmhouse”
Reviewed August 2, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you are looking for beautiful countryside and a well-equipped, spacious and tastefully decorated house, you will not be disappointed. Each bedroom has its own full bathroom. Good wifi, excellent (but cold) pool and large number of lounge chairs and sun loungers, providing many hours of happy, lazy gazing around the 270 degree view from the top of the hill where the house is located. Friendly and attentive owners have set the house up very nicely. They will go out of their way to help you and provide tips. Don't miss the bakery at the bottom of the road! Within very easy reach of a number of fascinating, quaint towns and only one hour from Porto, which encouraged us to visit it on a day trip. We definitely recommend this for large groups and families. There is even a 5th bedroom, meaning the house can easily sleep 10. A hidden gem.
