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.

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 freshwater rivers always pleasant on a good sleeping temperature, and also in the cooler season you by the Mediterranean sun quickly very pleasant temperatures.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

Our first time in Portugal was delightful.

Situated in the most incredible location, with stunning views over the mountainous ranges of Pedrogao Grande, this property was secluded from what seemed like the rest of the world. We felt like we were in our own private paradise.

Walks to the local town centre were only 15 minutes away by foot. People were extremely friendly and accommodating to our growing use of the Portuguese language. There was a fantastic range of breads and pastries available at the local bakery/patisserie. The prices were a steal, too.

During our 9 day stay we went for local walks twice a day. Nearby you will find natural rock pools to swim in, a sectioned off part of the lake also. There are a few good restaurants littered in the centre of Pedrogao Grande, Taberno De Ferrador being the best we came across.

House was delightful. If you are in need of stripped back and simple holiday to unwind and unplug, you'll find this place caters to your needs 100%.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our time at this property. It is in a quiet location on the edge of Pedrogao Grande, a pleasant small town, and well placed for exploring the region, there are many excellent walks within a short drive, as well as river beaches, many small towns and historic sites to explore, and the delightful city of Coimbra. The property is comfortable, spacious and has great views over the valley. We would have no hesitation in recommending.

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.
