Client Reviews for Quinta de São Bento

Very special property and the caretakers Donna Rosa and Manuel were extremely helpful without being intrusive.

Quinta de Sao Bento exceeded our expectations and we had a wonderful holiday exploring the local area. The caretakers were kind and helpful without being intrusive and we would highly recommend Doña Rosa's cooking skills! The pool, tennis courts and pool table were fabulous and were well used during our stay! We will definitely be returning!

The villa combines the sense of the past with the lovely old furniture in the formal dining room with the comfort and convenience of today. The grounds are lovely ,a virtual arboretum with the variety of trees and plants. Although near to the town it was very quiet . The housekeepers were very friendly and Doña Rosa maintains the house and grounds to a very high standard.. We particularly enjoyed our visit to Ponte da Lima and the Internatinal Festival of Gardens.

We were extremely pleased with the property, being a group of mixed ages the facilities available suited all our needs perfectly. You provided us with everything we needed and any questions we had were answered in a timely manner. The travel wallet containing information, tags for cases etc was a nice touch.

The villa was fantastic and the staff in the office were very helpful. The arrangements and paperwork sent to us was first-class. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Just returned from a wonderful week in Northern Portugal, to celebrate our Golden Wedding, with the family. The villa, Quinta de Sao Bento, was far in excess of anything we had imagined. A beautiful villa in beautiful extensive grounds... Both very well maintained...You need to visit to appreciate the many qualities this villa presents. The local people were very friendly and helpful, as was the housekeeper. Nothing was to much trouble and any issues were quickly sorted out. Bread delivered daily for breakfast, which was a nice touch. We were all surprised how reasonable things were priced and how good the quality of all food items were. Eating out was half the price of eating in the UK. We all came home with money to spare, which has to be a first. There was twelve in our party and we all had a brilliant time, with not one complaint...Which also has to be a first...

We echo the comments of the previous visitor. The pictures do not do this wonderful house justice. The house itself is large and looks out on the kiwi crops. The pool area is another house in itself with its own shower and toilet block. It has a barbecue area and place for eating which is separate from the main house. The tennis court is an added bonus though we played a lot of pool. Rosa and Manuel and their sons who live on site are kindness itself. They never intrude on your holiday but are there when you need any help whatsoever. ...and Northern Portugal is truly beautiful. Our only question, when can we come back again.

We had an excellent week at Quinta do Sao Bento. A nice warm welcomewith some port and cake and the daily delivery of bread was very useful. We made full use of the facilities, tennis court, pool, bikes and snooker all great. Visited several places: Ponte de Lima and Ponte de Barca - interesting and very picturesque as well as Guimaraes and Bom Jesus.
