The Farm: Originally built in 1892, Bento Novo was recently renovated to more comfortably accommodate our guests, but the beautiful characteristics of its buildings have been preserved. The contrast of schist and granite that can be found throughout the property emphasizes the harmony that exists between what nature has provided and man has embellished.

So if you are looking for a relaxing get away or want to come and discover the Alto-Minho region’s rich natural and historical heritage and experience its sea side attractions, we hope you will make us a part of your unforgettable vacation.

About: The 18th-century property had fallen into considerable disrepair since the days the ancient house started needing restoration. We considered selling it, but we couldn’t bear to give up a place that was part of our childhood.
Fortunately, there was another option. With “rural tourism” popular in Portugal at the time, we decided to renovate the house and turn it into an inn for our guests. Today, Quinta do Bento Novo, http://www.quintabentonovo.pt, as the historic property is known, has been restored to its former glory. The seven-bedroom inn welcomes guests from all over the world and its elegant, surrounding gardens are the pride of Paulo’s hometown.
Why Viana Do Castelo: I inherited this manor house in the Portuguese countryside. It belongs to my family since XVIII century.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Extraordinary gardens, large house perfect for big families or groups, picturesque village, close to the beach, great gastronomy.
