Ammenities are comfortable and well presented. The accomodation consists of a living room and kitchen on the ground floor and a bedroom and en suite bathroom above. We understand that they now have thier own hens for freshly laid egggs and that there will be plenty of fresh produce from the garden this year.
The location is beautifully secluded yet only a couple of kilometres from the pleasant and friendly little town of Vila de Rei which has shops, bars and restaurants.
Within easy travelling distance are lovely quiet river beaches and river boat trips. If you like walking/hiking then this is the place to be, some of the tracks actually start from the back of the house.
Phil and Lou (and Chester their dog) have a great place here which we look forward to visiting again sometime in the future.
Set down a secluded track near the village of Vila de Rei, the Quintinha is a lovely self-contained home away from home, complete with a kitchen and wood-burning stove. The terracotta tiled floors and shutters on the windows keep it deliciously cool in the summer. The valley faces west, the millions of trees wave in the breeze and it is truly a perfect get-away for those who want some peace and quiet. That said it is also ideal for exploring the lesser known Portugal; the roads are fantastic and traffic free - all you need is a map. There are beautiful river beaches nearby so bring your swimsuit. You are in the geographical centre of Portugal so visit the Centro Geodesico de Portugal in Vila de Rei for an amazing 360 panoramic view of the country. On a clear day you can see Spain!
Secluded and private property but with easy access to Villa de Rei with it's little shops and charming bars and restaurants. Just down the road we discovered one the most interesting restaurants I have seen! Lovely food, and great relaxed family atmosphere, definitely a favourite with the locals.
