Our room was quiet, arge, modern, and well apointed, as was the bathroom. The balcony had a stunning view! The buffet breakfast is very good with a large variety and very good ingredients. The whole place is spotless with very friendly staff, and the buildings are "immersed in green". There is parking on the spot. The hotel is located in...

After hiking the amazing Paiva Boardwalk me and a friend decided to spend the night at Quinta de Novais. We came in tired around midnight and were greeted by the manager like uninvited strangers (sadly this is not uncommon, why do people manage a hotel if they are not happy to see people wanting to stay there?) and got a...

Just outside Arouca but already in the country, ideal to visit the Geopark and the Paiva Walkways. Regional stone building, but decorated in a modern and elegant way. Our room was upstairs, with a nice balcony overlooking the countryside. It has a pool that when we arrived was not working due to the recent bad weather. The surrounding is nice,...

Exactly what you expect from a place in a more quite area! Very quite place to stay and relax! Easy access to the region of Arouca, and close to the city center for some food! Staff is very helpful and the breakfast is included (a lot of fresh things).

Hotel Rural Quinta de Novais is really a very nice place to stay and visit Arouca. The rooms are nice, but the best characteristic are the surroundings. The staff is attentive and friendly. We did not try the restaurant but the breakfast was great.

Our stay was delightful, and we were so spoiled by this hotel that none of the others on our trip seemed adequate (including a 4 star). The rooms were large and well furnished. The staff, especially Joao, seemed to take pure joy in their work. The food was delicious, and the location was the nearest I have been to heaven....

A fantastic little place hidden away in the mountains. Perfect for a getaway from the city's craziness, to relax, to read and get a breath of fresh air. Liked best: kindness of staff; food; location; private balcony. Not so much: beds were very firm.
