Dear friends of the relaxing country life!
As preface I write a few words about the big bushfires in 2017. God, good kharma, the location of our spot, we are not affected. So the view and the surroundings of the Quinta are preserved in it's natural beauty, including the river beaches nearby.
Our Quinta is nestled in the green mountains of Central Portugal in the midst of centuries old olive trees that overgrow the typical cultural terraces. In search of rest, deceleration, closeness to nature and an authentic participation in the original rural life of Portugal, you are exactly right. The house consists of a lovingly renovated stone house, which now houses bedrooms upstairs, and kitchen and bathroom in the basement. This was extended by a modern designed spacious living room with large panoramic windows, which can be opened so that house and garden merge into each other. Both in front of the house and on the huge roof terrace you have a magnificent view over the deep valleys of the Rio Zezere and Rio Pera, which open below the house ineinender.
The area offers great opportunities for recreational activities: hiking directly from the house away, beautiful swimming areas (Praia fluvial) on the rivers with clear cool water even and especially in the heat of summer. Swimming at the swimming pool in the lake near the property, fishing, cycling on quiet country lanes, water sports with kayak or canoe, motorsport (squad). Due to the proximity of the Quinta to the historic market town of Pedrogao Grande, which is also within walking distance, you can visit local markets and restaurants, there are plenty of shopping opportunities, there are banks, medical facilities and the traditional cafes and bars that are typical for Portugal. You can also participate in the numerous festas that are celebrated in the summer, and dance until well after midnight and celebrate with local music.
The surrounding area attracts visitors through cultural attractions in UNESCO cities such as Coimbra, Tomar, Alcobaca, as well as the endless pristine sandy beaches of the Antlantik can be easily reached within a day trip. Well-known swimming and surfing spots such as Nazare, Peniche and the port city of Figuera da Foz are within easy reach. Or you are just lazy and enjoy the tranquility and seclusion of the property with the knowledge, at any time on foot in the Portuguese civilization. The Quinta de Convento is ideal for couples, but also very good for families, as well as the children will get their money's worth by the numerous bathing possibilities.
Due to the wind-protected southern exposure of the property, and the heating possibility of the house, the property is also particularly suitable for stays outside the summer. The climate is very pleasant, even in summer, it cools through the mountains and the many fresh water of the rivers again and again pleasant to a good sleep temperature, and even in the cooler months you have by the Mediterranean sun quickly very pleasant temperatures.
The traffic connection is very good, both with the own car, as well as by the very well-developed bus network of Portugal.
