About the property

Dear friends of the relaxing country life!

Our Quinta is nestled in the green mountains of central Portugal in the midst of several centuries old olive trees that covered the region typical culture terraces. Looking for peace, deceleration, closeness to nature and an authentic participation in the original country of Portugal life you've come to the right place. The house has been lovingly restored stone house, which today houses bedrooms upstairs and kitchen and bathroom in the basement. Was extended this by a modernly designed spacious living room with large panoramic windows that can be opened so that your home and garden merge. Both front of the house as well as the huge roof terrace offers a magnificent view over the deep valleys of the Rio Zezere and Pera Rio, which open below the house ineinender.

The area offers great opportunities for recreation: Hiking directly from the house, wonderful swimming holes (Praia Fluvial) on the rivers with clear cool water also and especially in the heat of summer. Swimming at the swimming pool in the lake very close to the land, fishing, cycling on quiet country roads, water sports with kayak or canoe, motor sports (Squad). Due to the proximity of the Quinta to the historic market town of Pedrogao Grande, which can be reached on foot well also, you can visit local markets and restaurants, there are many different shops, there are banks, medical facilities and trditionellen cafes and bars, which are typical for Portugal. In addition, you can take part in the many festas, which are celebrated in the summer, and until well dance and celebrate local music after midnight.

The broader area attracted by Kulter in UNESCO cities like Coimbra, Tomar, Alcobaca, and the endless pristine sandy beaches of Antlantiks are easily accessible within a day trip. Known swimming and surfing spots such as Nazare, Peniche and the port city Figuera da Foz are easy to reach. Or you're just lazy and enjoy the peace and quiet of the property with the Bewusstein any time on foot to the Portuguese civilization. The Quinta de Convento is ideal for couples, but also very good for families as the children will come through the numerous bathing their money. The words boredom and stress are you not come to mind during your stay in one of the last authentic and untouristsischen areas of western Europe.

Due to the sheltered south-facing of the property, and the heating facilities of the house, the property is also very particular for stays outside of the summer. The climate is very pleasant even in summer it cools through the mountains and the many freshwater rivers always pleasant on a good sleeping temperature, and also in the cooler season you by the Mediterranean sun quickly very pleasant temperatures.

Transportation is very good, both by car, and by the very extensive bus network in Portugal.

Lovely home, great spot.

  • 4 of 5

If you like hiking combined with good food and trips to historical places, this house is a great starting point. At the end of a (warm) day it is also a great place to relax and enjoy the view.

Country retreat!

  • 4 of 5

Lots of positives about this great little rural house. Fantastic panoramic views from the roof terrace. The garden was a lovely place to explore, lots of flowers & fresh fruit - passion fruit, grapes, pears, figs. The hammock was so relaxing & comfy! The large sitting room was a great room with views from all of the large glass doors & windows which lead on to the small but adequate terrace with comfy sun beds & a large parasol. Everywhere was very clean on our arrival, with clean bedding & towels. All appliances worked, induction hob was a little tricky to master - instructions were in German! But we got the hang of it. A small oven or gas barbecue would have been a welcome addition to the kitchen :-) as we were a little limited on what we could cook. The house is perfectly situated - the walk to the village is about a 20 minute stroll. It was a shame there was only one bike as we would have liked to have cycled there. Also, there are several walks in the area which are easy to follow. We did the one down through the woods to the river. There are checkpoints along the way with viewing points & informaton boards. We drove to the dam, which is a must. It's a real feat of engineering, really breathtaking. The key holder was friendly & reliable and easy to contact. We had a lovely, hot, relaxing stay on our first Portuguese holiday, thank you 😀

First Class!

  • 5 of 5

With a modern extension that overlooks a magnificent view juxtaposing nicely with the tastefully decorated original house, this property was just what we needed as a base to explore the magnificent heart of Portugal.

Martin, the owner, is friendly and helpful and he even has a pretty good taste in music - so much so, that a vast library contained on a memory stick left in the stereo got played numerous times!

We wouldn't hesitate to return.

Excellent séjour dans un environnement magnifique

  • 5 of 5

La description de l'annonce était parfaitement exacte. Nous n'avons pas été déçus bien au contraire.le paysage et la campagne environnante étaient somptueux . Nous recommandons cette adresse aux personnes qui aiment le calme , les belles balades. Nous avons reçu un accueil sympathique et gentil. Nous avons aussi beaucoup aimé la ville dev Coimbra et les monastères des environs

logement conforme aux photos et à la description

  • 1 of 5

le problème est qu'il n'y a rien à faire ni à visiter. Coté rando très peu, qui tournent autour de la zézère. pour la baignade c'est nul, une minuscule piscine flottante pour une dizaine d'enfants. Les accès au lacs sont rares le long du chemin qui longe ce lac et désagréables donc pas de baignades ni dans la zézere où senor nuno nous a déconseillé cause danger! loin de tout, galère pour faire ses courses; à pégrogao une très petite supérette où l'on ne trouve rien, sinon à 15km un intermarché (côté dépaysement on fait mieux). Le marché du lundi est très restrictif; que des légumes andalous....peu de choses intéressantes à acheter

un petit point noir sur la location: le branchement des plaques à induction est à revoir. tout est en fils volants avec multiprises, côté sécurité et conformité on fait mieux.

Prachtige plek om tot rust te komen!

  • 4 of 5

We hebben een plezierig verblijf gehad gedurende negen dagen.

De communicatie verliep goed.

Prachtig uitzicht vanaf het grote balkon, we hebben er veel gezeten onder de grote parasol, we troffen heerlijk zonnig weer al die dagen.

We hebben geen gebruik gemaakt van de fiets maar gingen soms lopend naar het dorp, half uur.

We aten nogal eens in restaurant "0 Emigrante" bij Sylvia, vaak een goed dagmenu voor een lage prijs met een lekker karafje wijn erbij.

Verder wel een leuk dorpje met op maandagmorgen de markt.

Vriendelijke mensen die Portugezen.

Graag gingen we naar de pastellaria voor een kopje koffie met Portugese lekkernijen en de wifi...

Mooie wandelingen te maken in de buurt, hebben dat 1 keer gedaan, goede bewegwijzering.

We zijn ook een dagje naar de kust gereden, 5 kwartier, goed te doen.

Binnen in het huis bleef het lekker koel. We hebben prima geslapen.

Vlakbij loopt een verkeersweg maar we hebben daar geen geluidsoverlast van gehad.

In de tuin een keer een citroen geplukt en daarmee lekker romige citroenyoghurt gemaakt.

We konden er lekker relaxen. Soms sloegen de honden van de buren aan maar dat gaat ook weer over.

Het huis was schoon. De koelkast niet helemaal maar dat kan een keer gebeuren.

Ik beveel de woning zeker aan, echt nog een redelijk authentiek stukje Portugal!
