Client Reviews for Quinta de São Bento


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!

The Barwick Family


Spent virtually the whole week enjoying the grounds, pool and house. Visited and enjoyed Porto and the markets. Fabulous family holiday.
The Cosgrove Family


Found the house delightful and well maintained - Dona Rosa and Manuel were discreet but helpful - especially the daily delivery of bread! The restaurant in town (fish one) was good and easy walking distance. The tennis court was great. Bom Jesus do Monte was amazing & well worth a trip as was Porto and Ponte de Lima. We had a lovely time and were blessed by amazing weather!
The Comba Family


We had a lovely relaxing time at Quinta de São Bento. We made use of all the facilities. The weather was great so we spent lots of time around the pool area. Such a big space - and what a pool house! Too hot to play tennis. Everything is so spacious - house, grounds etc. We had a great family holiday - thank you.
The Rodgers & The Munsons


Great house - Dona Rosa & Manuel really helpful (but not intrusive). Rosa's cooking worth trying, especially the rice and duck.....Great house, loads of room, quiet but not remote. Loved pool area, the brilliant weather helped....A very comfortable house for a large group of people. Everything well catered for.
