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.

We had a wonderfull time at the Quinta, we felt like King and Queen on our estate! Our cottage (Bougainvillea) was really fine furnished with special details, with a complete kitchen and even a dishwasher :-) Rooms are cleaned every day, the towels in the bathroom are enourmous. The friendly hosts Catharina or Gabriel bring you a fresh breakfast every morning, what is a better start than to start the day on your own terrace with fresh bread, fruit, yoghurt, an egg and orange juice! It is really silent up there, also on the swimming pool we were never with more than 4 people. I never give the full 5 points in a review, there is allways way for improvement. For Quinta da Bouça d'Arques, I really don't know what they can do to improve.

We went to Viana to do some kitesurfing, is a good place to learn. The welcome at the arrival was 10/10 (nice glass of oport included). We stayed in the lower floor of the main building. The room was beautifull and had all the facilities we need with a lot of nice details. Bed was really good. We also tried a good bottle of Albarinho. Many 5* luxury hotels are not as good. really good value for money

We spend a whole week in the Magnolia house. Very, very comfortabel!!! With it's great terace under an magnificient big americain oak wich gave coolness on warm days. Magnolia house is very peacefull, the bed is superb, the sheets are of high quallity. And above all, everything is very clean and maintained every day. The garden, swimingpool and surroundings are breathtaking. The woods on the premesis gave us the feeling that we were in paradise. Such variety of trees and plants! But the most off all we want to thank Gabriel and Catharina. You are teriffic hosts! And off course Joaõ, our landlord. During our holiday week he often asked us if we were satisfied with our stay. We told him that we were very relaxed due to the estate and the great team. Joaõ had an impresive remark: in english it means: take at easy, but don't stop. Joaõ, can you give me the exact words you used then? ( it was in spanish)Thanks all of you, we highley recomend your beautifull place! Mike and Angelina van Lieshout

Dear people of Quinta da Bouça darques Many thanks for the warm welcome. We enjoyed the beautiful stay including pool and breakfast. The breakfast was always neatly arranged, the rooms were very clean and the towels were changed regularly. It is an oasis of peace between the vineyards and the hills with lush nature. This location is an excellent base for exploring the region such as Porto, the beaches, the natural park etc.. We will definitely be back. Special thanks to Catharina.

We stayed at the Fountains house and it is an absolute recommendation! Beautiful gardens, a wonderful hike trail starts at their own forests, taking you back to ruins of the Iron Age, really peaceful, many birds and a great swimmingpool (filled with water of their own spring).
