About the property

Quinta da Bouça

After the great feedback from guests that stayed at Casa da Raposeira, Quinta da Bouça welcomes more guests on the other guest houses: Casa do Sobreiro, Casa da Eira and Casa da Oliveira.

All Guest houses at Quinta da Bouça were fully recovered. The decor was very carefully applied and customized.

Around each house there's gardens, terraces and living areas, with views over the Albufeira Carrapatelo.

The houses have air - conditioning. The wireless internet is free.

In every house, for breakfast: fresh bread delivered every day, and is also included to provide products such as coffee, tea, fruit, homemade jams and other essentials.

In outdoor areas, there are barbecue, tables and chairs where you can dine under the trees or in the quiet and warm summer nights.

The houses are located in Quinta da Bouça - On 16 acres of private property, guests can make invigorating walkings through paths and trails on dense woods areas. While looking the dam Carrapatelo on the River Douro, guests can admire our free range horses Garranos who live here in freedom.

Without any doubt, this is a special place to escape the bustle of day-to-day. The ideal getaway in connection with Nature.

Along the Douro railway line, also to the valleys of the rivers Bestança and Tâmega, between the mountains of Montemuro, Aboboreira and Montedeiras, near the boundaries of the counties of Marco, Baião and Cinfães, guests will always be two steps away to visit valuable landscape and cultural heritage.

Wonderfull stay at Quinta da Bouça

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Quinta da Bouça for 10 days and had a wonderfull time. The guesthouse is lovely and kept well, and the farm gives you wonderfull opportunities to roam around, pick your own fruits and just relax.

Paula and Pedro took great care of us. They got up in the middle of the night to let us in, welcomed us with a basked full of local treats and spoiled us with breakfast brought to the door every morning. Paula also took the time to show us around their beautifull farm.

Quinta da Bouça is a wonderfull place to stay if you enjoy nature, privacy and peace and quiete, you really get to get a way from the rush of everyday life and slow down. We would recomend staying here to anyone!

Owner's Response: One of the best things that comes from "spoiling" our guests it's that our guests spoil us back with very sweet kind smiles and words! :) Hope to see you two again!

Great experience!!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 days on this guest house located in a very peaceful and beautiful region with amazing landscape, rivers, waterfalls, food and very nice people, near villages where it seems that time doesn`t pass by. Nevertheless we found all conforts in the guest house (internet, cable TV, etc) not to talk on the amazing decoration of the house and farm which was done with very good taste. The cleaning was very well maintained and upon our arrival we were very well received by the owners who gave us a set of regional products (cheese, wine, jams,...) and were allways available to suggest things to do on the surroundings. Already recommended it to friends and family and it`s an experience to repeat.

My escape in the North of Portugal

  • 5 of 5

My family already stayed in Quinta da Bouça in all different seasons, and there is always something new to discover. In spring you can see the blowing of the flowers, feel the freshness of the river while in summer we can taste the full sweet flavour of the fruits and give the children a full experience in the countryside. In the autumn the sounds of the leaves breaking while we walk, the chestnuts in the oven, the fire that keeps us warm throughout the winter days. The morning breakfast with local products and the hospitality are a must. We will definitely return.

relaxing autumn in beautiful landscape

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 10 days at Casa da Raposeira in early October 2015, before the pool was built. The landscape is very beautiful and our view from the panoramic dining-room window made even a rainy autumn day very enjoyable. The house is homely, clean, well equipped and the hosts are discrete, helpful and lovely. Although there are several houses on the premises, we felt absolutely private in our little garden and couldn’t even see the other guesthouses from where we were. Just a little temperature warning: The house is in the mountains. Early October, as soon as the sun is gone, it’s getting fresh.

Paula recommended great hiking tours in the neighbourhood as well as excellent restaurants in different price ranges. You will need a car for shopping, dining and getting around. It’s worth exploring the area! We also recommend taking the train from downtown train station upriver including a boat tour at Peso da Regua. It’s a charming day trip and in autumn, tourists are spare.

We much enjoyed our stay and totally recommend!

Un seul mot : magnifique

  • 5 of 5

C'est une maison de pierre entourée d'orangers avec sa piscine privée. Son aménagement et sa décoration intérieure sont pleins de charme, alliant confort et bon gout . On y accède après quelques marches, cela confère au lieu une agréable intimité. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le petit déjeuner fourni tous les matins par nos hôtes, en particulier le pain frais. Quel plaisir de déjeuner dehors prés des glycines. Une voiture est indispensable pour visiter cette belle région du Douro. Guimares et Porto sont devenues mes villes préférées du Portugal. Je remercie Fernanda pour son accueil et sa présence si chaleureuse. Un seul regret: ne pas avoir pris le train qui longe le Douro.

After the great feedback on our Casa da Raposeira, check our other guest houses: Oliveira, Eira and Sobreiro.

Quinta da Bouça prepares to welcome new visitors from April!

We are very close to Albufeira Carrapatelo on the River Douro, with water sports.

The nearby landscape heritage is extraordinary: the Rivers and Valleys of Bestança, Douro and Tâmega.

The mountains of Montemuro, Aboboreira and Montedeiras.

Our location is ideal for visiting major attractions of the region and to practice outdoor activities like hiking and treking, bird watching, river fishing, road or mountain cycling.

We are close to typical Portuguese villages and towns, where there are fairs, markets and festivals (Baião, Cinfães, Resende, Amarante, Marco de Canaveses)

The city of Porto (or Oporto) is one hour away, 40 minutes to Guimarães and Alto Douro Wine Region is just over an hour by train.

The train station Mosteirô is less than 5 minutes away.
