  • Toddlers – pool is in a walled area of the garden accessed via a gate
  • Teenagers – good in-villa facilities including wifi, table tennis and swimming pool. Quiet, secluded location a ten minute drive from the nearest town
  • Reduced mobility – the site is on an incline.  There are two steps between the kitchen and formal dining room but otherwise the villa is on one level.


You will need a car. Two bedrooms are accessed directly from the courtyard.


This traditional quinta is in the countryside in a quiet, peaceful and relatively undiscovered location, perfect for relaxation. If you would like to explore during your stay there are plenty of activities available to try at the coast (four great beaches to try all within an hour's drive), historic towns to visit and a local Parque Natural for walks and bike rides. Cosmopolitan Lisbon is just over an hour away.


Traditional Portuguese quinta restored to a high standard by its current owners and now offers a beautifully relaxing destination for a holiday

The low-lying whitewashed villa is surrounded by fruit trees and open countryside and offers peace and tranquility for guests.

Entering the quinta brings you into a well-equipped kitchen which comfortably seats 8, off which lies a more formal dining space with doors out into the garden and pool area.

From the kitchen a long corridor links the other rooms in the main building including a separate utility room, an extra large bathroom with bath, shower and twin sinks and two bedrooms - one a twin and one a double.  These bedrooms both look over the pool area. 

There is a huge, double height hallway with doors opening onto the interior courtyard.  In the hallway area you will find a table tennis table and the entrance to the main living room which has three large sofas and TV.  There is also a sideboard with a fridge inside - chilled drinks will never be far away!

The remaining two bedrooms - one twin and one double - are accessed via the courtyard.  Both of these bedrooms have en-suite facilities and a wood burning stove.

Outside is a garden for children to play in as well as the pool area and fruit trees.  There is a BBQ and 8 sun loungers as well as an outside dining area for 8.
