Client Reviews for Quinta da Pousada

The villa we rented, Quinta De Pousada was by far the loveliest we have ever stayed in. The gardens are breathtaking and a credit to Ricardo and Rosa. We made the mistake of using another company last year having been with Vintage travel the year before. Needless to say, we won't be repeating that mistake and will very likely return to the same villa next year if available. Again something we have never done before.

Fabulous week, we have loved this wonderful house and grounds. The pool is fabulous, everything is maintained beautifully and Northern Portugal is a lovely area with friendly people. We enjoyed Ponte de Lima and the beach at Amorosa and will miss frog spotting in the pond. We hope to return one day - thank you.
The Sebire Family

This is a truly magnificent property in a beautiful part of Portugal. We have never been to the north of Portugal before but it won't be the last visit. Ponte de Lima is lovely and we really enjoyed the festival of flowers. The boys had a wonderful time (as did we all) in the pool and exploring the grounds. The pool is excellent for swimming being so large and it was really useful having a fridge and cooking facilities in the pool house. Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your wonderful home.
The New Family

Our stay has been too short. We arrived late on the Friday evening and are grateful to Rosario for the tour of the house and gardens just before night fell. Even at that time of day we could see that we had arrived somewhere very special. On another walk around the property in the morning there were still lots of surprises - geese, sheep, goats and an orange grove! A lovely week - many happy hours by the pool. Thank you for opening your home to visitors.
The Pegley Family

We have had a blissful week’s holiday at ‘Quinta da Pousada’, it’s truly a haven of peace and tranquillity. The grounds and villa are exceptional – thank you so much for all the thought and care that is given to making this such a beautiful place. It has been a privilege to stay here.
The Hicks Family

Arrived in pitch black – woke to paradise! Gardens stunning, weather fantastic and the pool house sublime. Truly a relaxing haven, just what was needed to chill & revive the brain cells. Sad to be leaving this beautiful villa. Thank you.
Mr & Mrs Elborn

We’ve had a fantastic time at Quinta da Pousada with the grounds, pool and house being very relaxing – and very big! We pulled up by the pool house on our arrival and thought it was nice without realising that it wasn’t THE house! Afife beach was great. We loved Ponte de Lima and ate there several times – Vaca das Cordas was the best. Great place for soaking up the atmosphere. Locals have been lovely, as have Rosie, Rosa and Ricardo – nothing is too much bother. A drive to the National Park is definitely worth it with Lindoso and Soajo worth a look. High ropes at Mezio also fun. Valença nice as was Viana do Castelo. All in all a great week in a beautiful location and house. The kids just loved the pool! We felt very at home here and hope to return one day soon.
The Wells Family

Great holiday! Magnificent grounds, super pool and very comfortable house. We did all the usual trips and sights; Ponte de Lima Market, Viana do Castelo, day trip to Spain on the ferry from Caminha with lunch in Baiona which was superb, beach at Moledo, Valença and Monção, trip to the Peneda Gerês National Park and walk along the Ecovia to Ponte de Lima which is definitely the nicest town in the region.
The Deacon Family

We’ve been on holiday in villas in Spain, Italy, France and Croatia and we all agree that this is the best property, grounds and pool that we have come across and we’re definitely tempted to come back next year. Would agree with previous comments about Northern Portugal – very friendly people, relaxed pace of life, unspoilt and relatively undiscovered by hordes of tourists. Great place to get away from it all.
The Jackson Party

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful villa, the villa and grounds are absolutely stunning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, found plenty to do and see in the area and we all shopped till we dropped! We have been to Northern Portugal and the Algarve for the last 10 years and we all agree that this is the best villa we have stayed in. We leave you with much regret, and we will come back another year to experience your hospitality.
