Surrounded by an exuberant green and a deep silence, Quinta da Bouça d'Arques presents all the genuine features of the most solid tradition of the Minho region: beautiful trellised vineyards, gravel yards protected by centenary trees and a meticulously restored manor house which, for the last 300 years, has born the Abreu Teixeira family coat of arms. But a closer look discloses other realities. A bit tired of the similarity between the houses of the region, Ana and João Couto tried a more creative and risky approach. They used less traditional materials such as iron, glass and concrete and they gave birth to a dream where modernity, comfort and good taste live in harmony with tradition.

What To Do
 1. The swimming-pool 
 2. The small forest 
 3. The Doll's House 
 4. Bicycles 
 5. Beaches 
 6. Massage service 

1. Relax in the deckchairs or take a dip in the chlorine free water. From April to September, the pool’s water temperature stays between 24-29ºC thanks to its bottom color which attracts the sunlight and its location with sun exposure to the south, sheltered from north winds.

2. Feel like doing some exercise? With 40.000m2, the forest offers walking trails through its dense vegetation, big chestnut trees and large stones covered with moss.

3. A charming little wood house with small stairs and a delicious balcony where children can play and have fun. Grown-ups, stay outside!

4. Bicycles are available for guests. A good way of doing exercise and getting to know the beautiful surroundings.

5. The coast of Viana is rich in iodine and offers excellent bathing conditions when the weather is hot. Afife, Carreço and Paçô are just 15 minutes away

6. An intense, relaxing experience in the comfort and privacy of guest’s own room.

Where To Go
 1. Santa Luzia viewpoint 
 2. Viana’s historical centre 
 3. Ponte de Lima 
 4. Nature highlights of the Alto Minho 
 5. Darque Vila Restaurant 
 6. Valentim Restaurant 

1. Being the “ex-libris” of Viana do Castelo, it reveals a unique view of the region combining the sea, the Lima river and all the surrounding panorama.

2. With origins dating back to the 13th century, one can still listen a medieval whisper in the city streets. The historical centre involves the beautiful Praça da República and deserves a visit.

3. Travelling up the Lima River one comes across an imposing bridge that has given its name to this historic town (Lima’s bridge).

4. A partnership with Portugal Green Walks provides guests with magnificent tours by Alto Minho nature highlights, either by foot, bicycle or on horseback.

5. A modest restaurant that will seduce you by the gentleness of the staff and its excellent cuisine.

6. In the streets of a typical fishermen’s quarter in Viana, a family restaurant whose owner refuses to open when the fish isn’t fresh!
