We stayed at the Quinta (Spring cottage) towards the end of April just as the weather started to get warmer during the day and nights still clear and cool. It was a serene stay - the Quinta is located in a private rural location at the end of long drive flanked on each side by a vineyard. The cottage had a kitchenette / dining room; spacious bedroom with plenty of natural light and large bathroom. In the grounds the Quinta has a very nice swimming pool which our daughter enjoyed. The breakfast was wonderful with homemade jams, fresh bread rolls and orange juice. Overall, it is a wonderful small hotel and in a good location for touring around the Minho.

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.
