Northern Portugal is a little cooler and wetter than the South, but still generally warm in summer and mild in winter. Most guests come in the period from May to September. The Quinta is open throughout the year.
The ancient Quinta da Bouca d'Arques country estate is located just 10 km from Viana do Castelo - one of the most beautiful coastal towns in the northern Portuguese province of Minho. It’s a property that’s steeped in history, and where natural beauty, unrivalled comfort and superb service all come together. Owners Ana and her husband Joao wanted to put their individual stamp on the property and have renovated it according to their own unique taste. Four apartments in the old farmhouse have been renovated in keeping with their pastoral past, two new contemporary apartments have been completed amidst the greenery, and there’s an additional suite in the main house for those who require “less space”. The mature garden is a lush oasis of colourful hydrangeas, jacarandas and Bougainville, and a number of tall trees provide some welcome shade for a lazy afternoon with a good book.
