We were a group of four ladies visiting the Quinta for a four day break. Virginia let us stay in her Pool House which she has recently had built amidst the vineyards surrounding the Quinta together with a gorgeous swimming pool just in front. Waking up to the view of the turquoise pool with the panoramic vista of the valley beyond is truly a magical experience.
The house is equipped with everything you could need and you get the impression that if anything was missing, Virginia would provide it within minutes!
We had to tear ourselves away from the pool and the view, but when we did, we enjoyed visiting the historic cities of Braga and Guimaraes. We frequented many cafes for the excellent coffee and delicious pastries - particularly the pasteis de nata (custard tarts) of which we became connoisseurs!
We ate out quite a lot as the prices were good and the owners so welcoming.
We ran out of time to visit the nearby religious sanctuaries- so will have to return soon.
We were very sorry to leave this beautiful
place and would highly recommend it to others.
Lovely house which has been beautifully furnished. We had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed the 'secret' swimming pool in the grounds. The hosts were brilliant too - really helpful and also provided a welcome basket of fruit and veg which was really tasty and very much appreciated. Would stay again.
