Superb! from Nieuwenhuize 19/Aug/2015 (period of stay: July 2015)
We enjoyed a great fortnight at Casal da Devesa. The house was perfect for our family (2 adults, 3 children and the atmosphere on the quinta was authentic and tranquilizing, making it hard not to relax. The children loved the huge pool and the hammocks. The cafe around the corner is great for a coffee and fresh bread all day long.
Margarida did everything to make our stay unforgettable. Muito obrigado por tudo!
Tudo de bom,

Casal da Devesa from peter42 27/Sep/2013 (period of stay: September 2013)
We received the warmest of welcomes from the owners and enjoyed our stay enormously. The accommodations were comfortable, the surroundings were charming and the weather was exceptional.
There are interesting villages and towns within 20 miles and the beaches south of Viana do Castelo are good.
