Client Reviews for Casa do Bosque


We have had a very relaxing week - sunny almost every day although cool at night. Beaches of Afife and Ancora beautiful and almost empty out of season.
The Arnold Family


We have spent many villa holidays in France, Spain and Portugal and this was the best! Beautiful pool and garden, comfortable beds and well equipped house, Perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Thank you Maria and Manuel for your hospitality.
Mr & Mrs Winn


Really good property with an unusual architectural twist and very helpful hosts. Lovely 12m pool large enough for proper swimming. Lots to do in the area and also worth taking your bike for challenging road and MTB routes.

We have very much enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this home in the trees; amazing that it can remain so cool inside when its touching 40C outside - very cleverly designed with no A/C.
The Reynolds Family


A few thoughts - A beautiful home and a warm welcome. The inviting pool which was very much appreciated in the heatwave. A perfect base to explore Northern Portugal and useful dictionaries, leaflets and personal tips on how to choose port! We are torn between keeping this to ourselves or letting a select few know about this lovely house in the woods.
The Ward Family


Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful villa, it was like luxury to us. We had a lovely time exploring the local area, towns, markets and beaches - as well as plenty of time relaxing by the pool. We have already started recommending you to our family and friends.
The Wilson Family


We have had a superb week here in this lovely house. We have enjoyed eating on the decking amongst the tree tops listening to the birds and watching the bats fly out at dusk. The pool has been marvellous - we cannot believe it was just for the two of us! We have travelled around the area and visited lots of interesting places. Thanks to our hosts Maria & Manuel for making us feel very welcome.

Casa de Bosque was easily the best holiday accommodation that I have stayed in. Vintage scores high on seeking out unusual properties in off the beaten track locations. We wished we'd booked a fortnight, not a week, there is so much to do and see here. This villa with it's beautiful garden and pool is such a lovely place. Very thoughtfully designed to make a peaceful and restful stay. Maria and Manuel have been wonderful and helpful hosts - very warm and friendly. We loved the lagoons near Ponte de Lima, the beach at Afife which was deserted with a lovely stretch of sand. We explored Barcelos on Thursday - when the market is held - very fascinating with a interesting pottery museum. We also enjoyed visiting Viana do Castelo.
The Shelton Family


What a stunning property. The house is beautifully designed, very comfortable and relaxed. The pool and ground are very attractive. We have been incredibly lucky with the weather, only one cool day. Have loved the local market and food. Favourite places: Ponte de Lima, Guimarães and Valença, oh…and the pool! Most fun; we hired bikes & cycled along the eco track by the river. Thank you Maria and Manuel for your welcome and help.

We have had an excellent week in Casa do Bosque. We really lucked out with the weather and cannot recall a better place to relax and re-charge our batteries. Our second time to this lovely region of Portugal and have enjoyed our time here greatly. Lots of rest, lots of reading and relaxing by the wonderful pool, surrounded by lovely gardens – an exquisite treat! Many thanks to Maria and Manuel for a truly wonderful time.
