Our visit on Arthur‘s Quinta was the highlight of our Portugal Tour.
We enjoyed the outdoor pool, the antik furniture in the cosy rooms, the breakfast together with other visitors, drinking a bottle of his vinho verde on the balcony and last but not least treading the grapes in the trough.
We had a great time.

We stayed 4 nights with Arthur while touring northern Portugal in late October. We’d been traveling for a week and a half and were looking for a laid back, relaxing experience. The quinta (a wine growing estate) was perfect for us. The quinta has been in Arthur’s family for generations. He has done a magnificent job of restoring it. The rooms are modern and comfortable. The common areas–a library, a dining room, and a wonderful balcony are spectacular. There is a nice, well stocked kitchen available for guests to use. We had happy hour on the balcony every night and also picnicked there one night. It was pleasant to walk through the vineyards and look out on the hills and valleys of northern Portugal. Breakfast was included and we were well taken care of by Antonio. We had very interesting discussions with this smart young man every morning. And finally as a bonus, on our last night Arthur and Antonio combined to serve us a traditional Portugese meal with wines from the estate. So there you go!

Arturio and Antonio were extremely gracious and helpful during our stay. Rooms were perfect, breakfast and conversation with Antonio was delightful. Arturio gave us lots of information and advice about the surrounding area and a delightful tour of the family property and its history. We'd highly recommend this lovely place for a couple or a family group. Looking forward to our next visit with our new friends.

Everything about the Quinta invites relaxation; the surroundings are breathtaking and beautiful and the rooms are comfortable and very stylishly designed with great attention to detail.

We had our own impressive terrace with a spectacular view and a beautiful bathroom.

Arthur went above and beyond, giving us everything we needed and guiding us through the premises and explaining the wine-making process. He booked restaurants, ordered taxis and even drove us into the village on the first night when we were unsure of where to go and what to eat!

The pool and surroundings were also enchanting and the breakfasts delicious.

Thank you so much Arthur and family for having us to stay and for a lovely introduction to Portugal and one we won't forget. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay at the Quinta. A beautiful house in beautiful surroundings. Whether lounging by the pool or sitting on the terrace watching the nesting swallows with a glass of vinho verde in hand, all very relaxing. The rooms are lovely and well appointed. Arthur is a wonderful host and a very good cook! Thank you Arthur!
