Restored with our own hands and lots of love.
Our quinta was built by the famous architect Marques Abreu in 1935. Every detail shows that the house was built by someone with taste, knowledge and love for art. The house has beautiful poems in azulejos on the outside. It is authentic. All details have also been preserved inside, including the original furniture, original photos made by the architect and a stained glass window. Everything has of course been restored and adapted to modern requirements. The house is in a private garden which ensures peace. The garden was also designed by the architect and gives it a lot of cachet. You will fully unwind here.
In 2015 we decided to exchange the busy and cold Netherlands for the beautiful country of Portugal. We immediately fell in love with this "rich" house. After a year of renovation we want to let others enjoy our quinta, everything that the (vegetable) garden offers and the tranquility of the area.
We love to spoil people.
As a guest you have the choice between the B&B or the apartment. In the B&B, the guest has to his disposal the whole first floor and of course a wonderful breakfast is served. The apartment gives the guest his independence as if in his own home. Both options have views over the mountains. There is also a secluded garden where you can relax.
Our quinta is situated in a very green area between Rio Alva and Rio Mondego. One of the attractive things are the river beaches. In the summer months the beaches are monitored and there is often a bar for a snack and a drink. But the nice thing is that you can also look for your own private beach. The background is formed by the Serra do Açor with its characteristic slate villages and the Serra da Estrela.
On Thursday mornings there is a wonderful market in Arganil. In addition, the cultural cities of Coimbra and Viseu are a 45-minute-drive away. They are definitely worth a visit. And if you still want to spend a day at the beach of the Atlantic Ocean: Figueira da Foz is 1 hour away. In the summer there are festivities in the area every weekend. And the gastronomy is delicious. Chanfana (goat dish) from the mountains with beans, grilled chicken on the markets, broa (bread from the wood oven etc.) All this accompanied by an excellent wine from the Dão region.
Come experience, taste and discover all this!
