Casa do Bóco was a dream. Set away from anything really touristy Arouca and its surrounding areas did not disappoint our family. We had the wonderful opportunity to stay for two weeks at Manuel's families Casa outside of Arouca (the town). Great outdoor activities, from the long boardwalk hike, river swimming and exploring geological attractions like Mother Rocks (who knew!) kept us more than busy. Patricia the house manager was wonderful and offered her services without hesitation. We (un)fortunately had our phone off for most of the time so missed these offers.
The house itself was very comfortable, with a living room, dining room and bathrooms in each bedroom.
Would highly recommend both the location and the house to any would be renters. On a short visit to Lisbon we told our waiter where we were staying and he seemed confused, as if we misspoke. No one, he said, goes to Arouca, and thought it strange we would be. Everyone else's loss in our opinion.
Great experience, in a house and region full of history.
Oh and there is a pool and it is fantastic.
Obrigado Manuel e Patricia!
