Hello Rita and Joa, we had a wonderful time in your guesthouse and enjoyed every minute staying in your house! The atmosphere, the kindness, the garden, the breakfast, it seemed as we were taking part of a fairy tale! We come back, enjoy the next months and please, keep some extra sun for the time we return!

My friend and I stayed at this super fantastic hotel for 3 nights. We had planned to stay for two nights, but it was such a nice place we stayed longer. I can't say enough good things about our experience there. Beautiful, relaxing, comfortable, quiet, nice pool, delicious breakfasts. But best of all, the friendly and helpful owners Joao and Rita, who made our stay in Borba very special. They even helped us plan the rest of our trip and make reservations at some lovely places Joao found on a website! If I am ever in Portugal again, I would definitely go back.

My wife and I enjoyed 6 nights at the Casa as part of our honeymoon. We were looking for a relaxing break away from the bustle of city life; this was perfect.

Joao is an excellent host, keen to ensure all guests are enjoying their visit. During our stay he advised on places to eat, lent us a guide book on the local area and even posted my sunglasses to our next hotel when I forgot them.

The settings of the Casa are both relaxing and tasteful. The room where breakfast is served is encapsulated by a wonderful garden. Enjoying a lengthy larte breakfast in the sun here was a personal favourite of mine. Our apartment was also fantastic with a terrace on the first flloor ideal for chilling out.

We just came back from our honeymoon in Portugal which included a 3 night stay at Casa do Terreiro do Poco. I can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. The owner, Joao, and his wife were fantastic hosts. He promptly replied to my many emails and gave excellent directions on how to arrive by car from Lisbon.

The rooms were beautiful (ours included a lovely veranda) and the lavender filled courtyard was so peaceful. The sea-water pool and surrounding lounge chairs was a great place to relax in the afternoons. The floor-to-ceiling windowed breakfast room was the ideal place to start every morning.

Speaking of breakfast, it may have been our favorite meal of the day! Each table of guests received a small tray of meats and cheeses. Several types of bread and EXCELLENT homemade preserves. A new breakfast cake everyday. Egg and potato tortilla. Plus a changing dish each day made by Joao's wife ranging from herb-seasoned fried cheese with olive oil to homemade pate. It was more than we could finish, though we tried dearly.

Joao was so nice, and always ready to recommend restaurants or places to visit. We enjoyed every restaurant he sent us to.

We strongly recommend Casa do Terreiro do Poco and look forward to the day we can return.

We had a great time at this hotel, although the weather was on the wet and cold side, the rooms were warm and comfortable. The owners made our party of eight (age range 7 to 53) so welcome, and helped to arrange a wine tour and even took us on Tasca tour where we were able to sample local wine and local dishes. Nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was a real event with fresh bread, cold meats and cheese, preserves, fresh juice, coffee, tea, home made tortilla, and cake - much more than we could eat, really set us up for the day.

Casa do Terreiro do Poço is great. We spent a wonderful three days there last week. We found no flaws. The location (in the centre of Borba), the rooms (full of charm) , the quietness (enjoy the silence), the breakfast (more than you can eat): everything is great.
