Quinta da Bouca d’Argues

A beam of light peeped into the room through my curtains. I slowly crawled out of my silky soft bed and opened the door of the apartment where I had been spending a couple of days. I was surprised by the soothing sound of chirping birds and took a deep breath. The fresh fragrance of flowers entered my nose. I must’ve stood there for a couple of minutes. Ah, the bliss of silence...

I fixed myself some breakfast on the private patio at Quinta da Bouca d’Arques. The friendly owners Joao and Ana had readied everything for me in the fridge. From juice to plums, melon and jam! I sat down on the private patio and recalled my conversations with Joao and Ana the day before. About their life on this centuries-old Portuguese farm. ‘This place has been in my family for generations', Joao had told me while I was enjoying some red wine on the terrace of their ochre yellow home. ‘It was basically set in stone that I would be inheriting the guest house one day. Now that I have, I realise how lucky we are with this amazing life at such a remarkable location’. After breakfast, I decided it was time for a challenge. Joao had recommended me to explore the area on foot. ‘The surroundings of Quita da Bouca d’Arques consist of gorgeous forests. You'll have no less than 40,000 square metres of forest at your disposal! Beautiful hikes all over the place, Eliza. You'll find large chestnut trees and huge boulders covered in moss’, Joao was right. I saw trees I had never seen before. Once again, surrounded by the pleasant chirping of birds. So much silence!

When I came back to my holiday residence at the end of the afternoon, I took a dip in the chlorine-free swimming pool of Quinta da Bouca d’Arques. Joao waved at me. With the sun on my face, I soaked in the memories I had made the days before. I hope this family tradition will continue for many generations to come...

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options.
