Imagine an enchanted bed & breakfast set in a hacienda/fazenda, then just add your best friends

  • 5 of 5

Quinta da Fontoura is an exquisite house providing the utmost in impeccable round-the-clock, onsite service and set amongst a flurry of flowers, trees, hammocks, modern amenities and old world charm. The biological pool is refreshing (and delightful as it surrounds one with water lilies), the garden inspiring, and though one is surrounded by a few other houses there is such a peace about the place. What really sets this place apart is the service however. We wanted a welcome meal: we got a feast. The Americans in our group wanted an Independence Day BBQ: they made one specially for us in the garden with local meats, wines and beer, plus plenty of gin. We needed fresh clothes: they washed it all. The air conditioner wasn’t working the evening we arrived: they had a technician sort it out the next morning. There was never a ’no’, but rather ‘what did you like most? what could we do better?’. The owner Alberto and employee Rita deserve particular praise – they kept checking on our well-being without at all being intrusive. Be warned that the rooms can get a bit warm during very hot days, but that the shaded areas and breezes and pool will provide the respite you need. Enjoy!

Feines Urlaubsparadies zum Erholen

  • 5 of 5

Quinta Fontoura war im Juli und August 2015 unser kleines "Paradies". Der große Garten ist liebevoll gepflegt, mit vielen kleinen Erholungsinseln, mit einem netten kleinen Badeteich, Kickern, Liegestühlen und Hängematten ausgestattet. Besonders das Personal ist sehr freundlich und um seine Gäste sehr bemüht, ohne zu aufdringlich zu sein.

Leckeres Frühstück wird morgens serviert mit Croissants, selbstgemachten Marmeladen und frisch gepressten Orangensaft von den eigenen Orangenbäumen. Das Diner abends einfach köstlich mit vielen heimischen Gerichten zum probieren!

Für die Anfahrt ist ein eigener PKW nötig.

Simply delightful

  • 5 of 5

A very nicely decorated ambiance, cozy, elegant, quiet, with a nice ancient flavor of an "Hacienda". The staff is incredibly courteous, kind, helpful, friendly and enchanting. The gardens and pond are quite a unique experience, and for us, it was so, especially at night for a drink or dinner. Food home cooking style but always well prepared, plentiful and tasty. Exceeded all our expectations.

Truly memorable

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to 'northern Portugal' - unlikely to be our last! This is a wonderful venue to visit the area taking in the sights of Aveiro; Coimbra and the vineyards of the Dao. Our host (Alberto - ably assisted by the lovely Rita) were terrific as was the cook who prepared a lovely selection of meals, all prepared to our own wishes.

A beautiful property and, beautiful people - we would go back tomorrow if we could! Book it - enjoy it - you will not regret it!!

Simplement Un Coin de Paradis

  • 5 of 5

Il est rare d'avoir un accueil aussi chaleureux.

Alberto et Rita ont tout fait pour que notre séjour soit exceptionnel.

Le cadre est magnifique et entretenu avec goût, tant sur l'aspect jardin avec sa piscine naturelle que sur l'aspect intérieur où nous avons découvert chaque jour un nouveau détail.

Les petits déjeuners sont copieux et on a beaucoup apprécié le jus d'orange pressé.

Par ailleurs, nous ne pouvons que conseiller de prendre vos dîners sur place car la cuisine est excellente et copieuse.

Enfin la situation est excellente car à la campagne mais proche d'Aveiro.

Bref nous avons découvert un petit coin de paradis que nous recommandons vivement pour la visite du Nord du Portugal.

A great place to experience Portugal!

  • 5 of 5

A family of four from Bavaria/Germany we stayed at the Quinta for 9 days, and we had a great experience and a wonderful time.

We loved the buildings, the huge park, the woods and of coure the big pond with the natural pool - favourite of our kids.

Wellcome, service, cooking were all the time very heartfull, charming, individually set up for our needs: great meals, sight seeing tipps, tour of the woods, .....

Porto, Coimbra, Aveiro and beaches (25 min) are easily reached.

Alberto has made a wonderful spot of his family heritage, Daniela and the rest of the staff add what is needed to make it a great place to spend a vacation in Portugal.
