Wonderful experience in a beautiful rural setting

  • 5 of 5

Paula has created a very special and unique compound in a quiet, rural area of the Duroro River valley. The villa is large, comfortbale and very well equipped with everything you need. There is a generous supply of provisions stocked in the kitchen upon arrival. We arrived at the peak of their local grape harvest so there was a flurry of activity which made the experience even more interesting. One of the best parts about Paula's property is the location and setting. The views are amazing. Waking up in the morning to see the spectacular rural countryside framed by the bedroom window is a sight I won't soon forget. Paula is a great host who is available when required but completely respects her guest's privacy too. Totally enjoyable experience.

Lovely house, great location for a quiet time in the country.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights at Casa da Raposeira and really enjoyed our stay. Paula was there to greet us and even helped us with our luggage! (There are a lot of steps to get to the house). The house and the overall location feels like you are in a movie. We really enjoyed our stay and Paula was really helpful, even providing us with Ibuprofen (I got a major migraine the day after we flew in). There was food in the fridge for breakfast (milk, juice, eggs, cheese, butter, homemade jams....) and fresh portugese bread every morning. Simply delicious! I would recommend Casa da Raposeira to anyone looking for a peaceful and beautiful place to stay.

Thank you Paula!

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.
