Reviewed 4 August 2014

Quinta de Malta is a fabolous place to visit for those ones who want to escape at least for a while from a dicouraging world... Places like that can speak themselves, you will fall in love in magnificent viev of the valey and never forget it... On top of that very comfortable apartment, swiming pool for your private use and tenis court (best place with best views I have ever playd tennis in my life) but that would be just Tuscany of the North Europe with one small remark... Ricardo (our host)... made a difference... And he added to our stay personal touch giving all the tips you would dreem to have to be in place like that... (including fantastic farewell dinner)
Barcelos, Ponte de Lima, Viana do Castelo and many othe places arround (including down hill biking competition) are just few minutes drive from Quinta de Malta
Unforgetable Place!!!

Rocardo - thanks a lot, our children loved that as well so best regards from Tymoon and Teodor

Ps - biking at the neighbeurhood is a great experience as well :0)

Room Tip: Family appartment is just great! Over 100 sqms you can enjoy including lemon and orange trees in yo...

From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed and the facilities enabled us to relax so quickly. We had the apartment nearest the pool, which had excellent facilities all round and was a great location within the property. The pool was excellent, as was the breakfast, and every one we met there was so friendly and there for the same reasons.The location was just right and enabled us to visit with ease, Viana, Ponte de Lima and Barcelos, together with some local walking in the hills. Ricardo, our host made himself available at all times and gave us great advice on restaurants and places to visit. He provided an excellent service beyond expectations, and was able to speak a number of languages, one being English for which we were very grateful. We are telling our friends and family of our lovely holiday and we would love to re visit.

Room Tip: T1 apartment nearest the pool was delightful and spacious

The place is an old Quinta build hundreds of years ago. It has been nicely renovated. Very good place. Very quiet and relaxing. Excellent service. The manager Ricardo was extremely helpful. Very good pool. Delightful breakfast with a new cake every day. Overall a really enjoyable stay and we will recommend to others.

We stayed for 3 nights at this guesthouse. We had the appartment close to the pool which had two beautiful ensuite bedrooms. We had dinner on the first night which was a fish meal - very good. The wine however was different to what we are accustomed to perhaps due to it being organic. Breakfast was excellent with fresh bread, and croissants. There was home made jams and ham and cheese. It was a lovely peaceful place to stay and we would certainly return.

Quinta de Malta is a great place to relax and come down .
The location was fantastic restored some years ago by the
owners; every corner is clean and aesthetic furnished,
we missed absolutley nothing !
Also the staff (Ricardo) is a very likable and helpful person.
We are sure coming back the next time.

The guesthouse is conveniently located centrally between Ponte de Lima and Viana do Castelo and is an excellent base to explore Barcelos and the region.
Friendly staff in a peaceful rural setting. Beautiful quinta (guesthouse) with all the amenities that you may require. Nice strong water in the shower.
Lovely swimming pool with views across the valley.
The atmosphere was so pleasant and the scenery so beautiful that we considered spending a whole day just staying at the guesthouse and not venturing out.
Ricardo the manager is very informative and helpful with many suggestions as to the local attractions.
I will definitely recommend this guesthouse to my friends and family.

I decided to go to Northern Portugal for my birthday this year and chose Qunta de Malta on the strengh of its location, reasonable rates and good reviews. My husband and I stayed only three nights as we wanted to explore other parts of Portugal. I was not disappointed. The weather was the only disappointment. I cannot fault Quinta de Malta in terms of the location, the views, the accommodation, the food, the helpfulness of the manager and the cook/owner. We had our evening meals there. There was enough to feed 6 people every time. I asked for a special seafood meal on my birthday and wow! What a treat! It was as expected, more expensive than the normal dinner, but the quantity was , as usual, enormous. I wish we could have eaten it all. We had lovely chats with the manager, Ricardo, who was very helpful in every way. If possible, I would certainly go back there. I would choose Quinta de Malta over and above any 4/5 star hotel.. It is a bit tricky to find, I would suggest more clear directions once you get to the village. I would also suggest a choice of tea and coffee in the guest sitting room. Green tea was available but my husband is not too keen on it.

Room Tip: We had a room with a covered terrace where we could sit and read before dinner.
