Client Reviews for Quinta de São Bento


This was the most incredible property in a wonderful location. We were all blown away by it. This was our third group holiday and it surpassed all expectations. We are a tennis group so the good quality court was great, but the fabulous pool area was such a bonus. The kitchen was excellently equipped. The area is excellent for walking and wild beaches. We experienced unseasonably hot weather which made it all the more perfect! Porto in easily accessible and a must see destination. All in all, we had the most wonderful holiday and are higly likely to return. Thank you so much for a brilliant holiday and villa!

The villa exceeded expectations, it was so spacious and well equipped and also located in beautiful grounds. The local area was convenient for local restaurants and supermarket.

Great villa with very helpful, lovely housekeepers. Gardens beautiful. Very well equipped kitchen. Tennis court wonderful and well used for the family championships! Property clean everywhere. Situated near to bars, restaurants and small supermarket so no need to rive everywhere. Many thanks for another great holiday with Vintage.

We had a lovely holiday and the villa was super. Vila de Prado is not a tourist town but has some nice restaurants and walks. You generally had to drive to get any activities such as kayaking.

This is the 6 th time we have booked with Vintage travel and the service has been excellent every time. Our stay in Quinta Sao Bento was outstanding the villa, the local people and the glorious scenery made it so special - we will be back.

We had a wonderful week here in this beautiful villa. Dona Rosa and her family spoilt us and made us feel very welcome. Madame Rosa cooked, grilled and baked for us and produced masses of delicious food...Thank you very much for your kind hospitality.

Fabulous week in a lovely villa. Great location. Villa well equipped especially the kitchen. The grounds around the villa are immaculately kept. We have had just the best holiday. We also supported the local economy by drinking the locally produced wine which was also very good. Thank you Dona Rosa and family for their wonderful hospitality.

What a beautiful part of the world - not too far from the UK either. Our family of 8 enjoyed a hot sunny week together in this beautiful property. With average temperatures hitting 30C, we were in our element. The markets seemed to be the place to purchase fruit, veg and meats as they were very competitive and more importantly delicious! Ponte de Lima is a beautiful town with friendly locals willing to teach Portuguese to us. Thank you for the lovely fresh bread we had every day. With thanks.

We have had a wonderful 2 weeks. The villas and grounds are absolutely gorgeous. The boys have loved riding around on the bikes and exploring the kiwi groves and stream. The adults have loved the outside space too - breakfast in the courtyard, supper and BBQs by the pool. Beautiful heat and pool time. Lots of fun and laughter with games by the pool in the evening - great family place. And so much to see around and about - trips to Ponte de Lima, Guimarães, the National Park, Braga, the beach. As soon as those green gates close you are in a total and peaceful oasis with unrivalled views and tranquility. We have loved our stay - thank you to Dona Rosa and Manuel for making it so lovely and enjoyable - especially with the bread in the morning.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here in Quinta de São Bento. Beautiful house with plenty of space, lovely pool, all very clean. The daily delivery of bread was nice and was gratefully consumed! Fabulous weather all week! We certainly recommend pizzas from the place out of the front gate, up to the main road and turn left - takeaway available too. Rosa and Manuel very helpful all the time. Thank you!
