Overview

Photos and Description of this 7 bedroom holiday villa in Viana do Castelo - Bento Novo Manorhouse

Self catering manor house, ideal for family vacations, near Atlantic Beaches

Quinta do Bento Novo is located in the North of Portugal, near the Atlantic Coast. The house has a capacity of 14+ people, with 7 double rooms, several spacious living rooms, a large kitchen that is fully equipped and can easily accommodate 14 people. The centennial house has been recently remodelled, so you will be able to enjoy the beautiful characteristic architecture and also feel the comfort of modern houses (central heating, spacious bedrooms, all with private bathroom, modern equipments). You will also enjoy the 4000 square meters of lands and beautiful gardens: you will be amazed by the enormous variety of plants, trees and flowers of the gardens, and take pleasure of the surrounding mountains and the stream that flows at the end of the property. The house is located in the small village of Perre, only 7 km away from Viana do Castelo, one of the most beautiful cities of Portugal, with a lot of history and culture to offer. The high quality Atlantic Beaches are only 8 km away.

The Region: Alto Minho has an enormous array of choices to give: beaches (Blue and Golden Flags), golf, tennis, swimming pools, spas, an excellent gastronomy, a very animated ambiance, fishing and hunting, water sports, trekking, historic villages, monuments, gardens, tourist circuits and a very contagious folk culture.

Come to discover the Province of the Minho, land of wine and folklore. And also, of castles, monasteries and churches that speaks of history, of villages full of monuments. Come to find Viana Castelo and the Lima River. Come to live the joy of the colourful popular parties.

The Farm: Originally built in 1892, Bento Novo was recently renovated to more comfortably accommodate our guests, but the beautiful characteristics of its buildings have been preserved. The contrast of schist and granite that can be found throughout the property emphasizes the harmony that exists between what nature has provided and man has embellished.

Bento Novo’s relaxing quiet atmosphere almost makes you forget how close you are to all the action that is happening in the surrounding area. So if you are looking for a relaxing get away or want to come and discover the Alto-Minho region’s rich natural and historical heritage and experience its sea side attractions, we hope you will make us a part of your unforgettable vacation.

About Paulo Barros

The 18th-century property had fallen into considerable disrepair since the days the ancient house started needing restoration. We considered selling it, but we couldn’t bear to give up a place that was part of our childhood.

Fortunately, there was another option. With “rural tourism” popular in Portugal at the time, we decided to renovate the house and turn it into an inn for our guests. Today, Quinta do Bento Novo, http://www.quintabentonovo.pt, as the historic property is known, has been restored to its former glory. The seven-bedroom inn welcomes guests from all over the world and its elegant, surrounding gardens are the pride of Paulo’s hometown.

Paulo Barros purchased this villa in 1734

Why Paulo Barros chose Viana do Castelo

I inherited this manor house in the Portuguese countryside. It belongs to my family since XVIII century.

What makes this villa unique

Extraordinary gardens, large house perfect for big families or groups, picturesque village, close to the beach, great gastronomy.

Endroit parfait

  • 5 out of 5
C’est l’endroit parfait pour passer des beaux jours de repos, en profitant de la tranquillité de la campagne et de l’atmosphère unique du Nord du Portugal. La maison est très belle et pittoresque (les jardins sont magnifiques) et l'accueil était parfait.

Avec une localisation très favorable : Au cœur de la campagne, et proche de la belle ville de Viana do Castelo, j’y recommande un séjour à tous qui aiment être bien accueilli et qui aiment la tradition. C’est le choix idéal pour connaître le nord du Portugal (il ne faut surtout pas rater la gastronomie de la région).

Best Vacations Ever!

  • 5 out of 5
Our stay at Quinta do Bento Novo was just marvellous.

We have no words to express how delighted we are with our decision on this house.

It's the only place I've seen where the place is actually best than its photos!

We are a family of 16 and growing divided by three generations, with different preferences and all of us have really enjoyed this farm.

It's one of a kind, huge gardens and house, good exterior and interior spaces to cook or have dinner and rest, great gastronomy, fresh fish available everywhere, you wake up hearing birds and oh, the smell of Nature!

There are fruit in the farm that you can eat, a stone tank that we used as a pool, you can ask the gardener to bring you fresh vegetables every day, I really have no words to express such a wonderful time we had in Quinta do Bento Novo.

I recommend without any reservations.

Spacious Accommodation in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 out of 5
We visited for 2 weeks with 9 grandchildren ( ages 6 mths - 13 yrs),and their parents. The villa was perfect for us, plenty of space & the most wonderful garden. We all loved it especially the children, who could only be enticed to the local beaches with difficulty.
We would recommend some improvements to the kitchen area which had inadequate facilities for self catering for 18. There were only 2 power sockets and the gas hob was not fully functional.
Otherwise we were all sad to leave and would be very happy to return

Accommodation to remember !

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent accommodation with all the trimmings for a peaceful stay. Paulo went out of his way to greet us at the property and to make us feel 'at home'. not to mention useful tips and places to visit.
The property itself is maintained to a high standard and the maid service was very friendly and thorough.
Peace and tranquility can be found in the extensive shaded gardens and water features.
Boutiques, good restaurants and beaches are close at hand and overall, the property is well situated for touring northern Portugal. Altogether a property which we can highly recommend.

It couldn't have been better

It couldn't have been better
  • 5 out of 5
It was such a lovely place. From there you can reach so many nice places with the car in a few minutes. The house is big enough for a group. One day some of us stayed just in the garden as it is awesome there. I can more then recommend it for a group around 20 people. Don't miss it.
