Quiet lodge in the middle of green surroundings and ample garden, very private and full of fruit trees and kitchen herbs. The pond with it's ducks is the perfect setting for long afternoon reads... Bruno's restaurant tips were a plus, all in all an excellent experience!

We love this place. Warm chalet with beautiful surroundings, every morning we picked fresh herbs from the garden to make herb tea, fresh fruits from the trees, hanging out on the hamacs... The location is central to visit the region for hiking and sight seeing...

Communication with Bruno was really good throughout. He also assisted with some good recommendations of what to do and where to eat. I would highly recommend eating at Pedestre 142 in Arouca!

We had an awesome stay with our 18 month old twins that far exceeded our expectations, mainly due to Sr. António which was awesome in supporting us with everything we needed: firewood, fresh fruit, local tips and even some aromatic plants. The place was indeed very beautiful and quiet and we got to see some newborn ducklings, which the kids loved. The Tasquinha da Quinta restaurant in Arouca is highly recommended.

We had the most wonderful stay in the house, it was everything we wanted and much more. The lake, the garden, and the house were just perfect. The house is cute and clean, with a fully equipped kitchen and it is much bigger that we expected from the photos. There's a lot of light entering the house. All through out the day, the property has sunshine depending where you are. There's an outdoor BBQ too. Its the perfect place for privacy and relaxing. Antonio, Bruno's father, was the perfect host. He is kind, generous and very helpful. He offered us lots of delicious vegetables from the garden of the house which we cooked every night. He also has lots of good tips on where to swim, visit and buy goods for your stay. We had the most wonderful stay and we would go back there for sure.

We had a lovely stay in Quinta da Assavada. Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful and kind, providing us with information on places to visit and leaving us fruits and vegetables from their garden and also welcoming us with a bottle of their own homemade champagne! The house and gardens are really lovely as is the surrounding area. Our kids were able to go fishing in the pond outside the house and they caught lots of fish (putting them back each time). Arouca is a very nice, peaceful town - it was lovely to have pastries and coffee for breakfast in the square each morning. The local pastries and cakes are really good. We went swimming in nearby rivers where there are small sandy beaches and the water is crystal clear. It is a beautiful area and I would definitely recommend it to others. Thank you Bruno and family!
