Four friends stayed at this property for three nights last week. We shared the separate house on the property. It is a VERY will run hotel or inn. The rooms are a little small, but have great sheets and bathrooms . The breakfast is out of this world !!! All of the people who work at this property could not...

The Quinta do Monteverde fulfilled all our expectations. We wanted to be within the family and we were invited by Fatima and Jose together with their sone Fancisco to their house and really used it as a home during one week stay there. Jose provided us a lot of very useful information, maps and drawings which helped us not to...

This lovely hotel is situated in a quiet village, Castelo do Neiva, and about 11km from Viana do Castelo. Although the village is unexceptional the hotel is a delightfully converted winery and former estate with comfortable rooms, pool (smallish though), gym, social area with games, TV, a small library and an honesty drinks bar, tennis court (too hot to play...

This is not a review of the quinta itself, which I'm sure is lovely -- it is a review of the chilly and unprofessional treatment we received when we were turned away. We booked two nights at the quinta via venere.com, in what was described as an ocean-view cottage. We drove up from Lisbon that morning with our baby. At...

Fatima_Mendonca, General Manager at Quinta do Monteverde, responded to this review

Dear Madam, Your post about Quinta do Monteverde on Tripadvisor, has caused us worry, disappointment and a bitter feeling of injustice. We immediately felt the urge to explain and apologize for what has happened to you, even if it was not our responsibility. We have therefore contacted CENTER, the booking agent responsible for the overbooking, for the inadequate directions and...

This is a really beautiful hotel where you feel more like a guest at a country house. The house and grounds are very well maintained with a lot of attention to detail and lovely antique furnishings throughout. There is a small gym, outdoor pool and tennis court as well as a spacious lounge with a well stocked honesty bar. We...

We stayed here for three nights during a two-week visit to northern Portugal. This was by far the most expensive hotel that we stayed at during this visit (125 euros per night). Most other hotels were about 60 to 70 euros per night with excellent lodging - so our expectations were indeed very high. Fátima welcomed us and showed us...

We spend a few days at Quinta do Monteverde, from time to time, and it had been a while. Everytime we go there, there is something new, planned by our dear and restless hosts Fátima and Zé to enhance the marvellous comfort and quiet of the place. This time, it was the renewed dining room, installed in the centuries old...

We try to visit this most delightful spot every year, usually with friends or family members. Writing an adequate review becomes harder each year, as the superlatives are already all used up. There are several reasons why we like this destination so much. The owners and hosts, Fatima and José Mendonça are lovely people and try extremely hard for all...

Don't lose heart as you approach the Quinta through the usual sprawl of red tiled holiday homes. Once the mighty doors through the Cyclopean walls close behind you, you are in another world. The mood is tranquil. Fatima, her husband and Elizabeth are delightful. Once a week Fatima cooks an excellent dinner. The grounds are extensive enough to hide a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This manor house was built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Cunha Lobo Barbosa and Sottomayor family just 1 km from the sea. In 1820, the Genoese Judge Luigi Vital Monteverdi married the owner of the estate and the house became to be known as Quinta do Monteverde. The manor house was completely renovated but the interior retains the touch of the seventeen hundreds. Quinta de Monteverde is a walled estate between the hills and the sea and close to the river mouth. In Castelo do Neiva, the sandy beach rolls on and on; sand dunes and unspoilt stretches lend a wonderful sense of isolation to the surroundings. ... more   less
