These rooms are integrated in the main house, but doesn't have a private living room, although a common living area is available. This option can also be rented together with the grandparents suite since they can be directly connected as a unique unit. “Quinta da Fontoura” is easily reached from Oporto airport (1 hour driving), and a 3 hours drive from Lisbon airport. The magnificent biologic swimming pool and a lake with 700 square meters, are feed with fresh water from its own natural water source, in the middle of the woods with 3 acres which offers a variety of very old trees, gardens and plenty of cosy spaces to rest and spend a very comfortable time. On demand you can have the traditional Portuguese meals for all family, served inside the house or in any of the wonderful and romantic corners of the farm at very reasonable rates of 20 Euros per person. Daily breakfasts served at the “mangedoura”, bed linen, towels for bath and for swimming and also cleaning once a week are included in the weekly rates. There are no extra or hidden costs. Cable TV is available. Internet access is also available with WIFI in all farm area, with exception of the woods. We can advise you and organize different tours for you in the surrounding area. Horse riding lessons are available on request close to the farmhouse. Car rental is recommended to explore all area around, including “Costa Nova” and 'Barra' beaches, many lovely landscapes, traditional villages, fishing harbours and the secular boat trips call “moliceiros” on “Ria de Aveiro”. If you are looking for a rest and quiet holidays, Quinta da Fontoura ia a wonderful option, since all social and leisure activities are developed inside in a private idyllic and peaceful environment. Swimming in the biological pool with natural water directly from the spring is an unforgettable experience. Purity and natural pH value allows you to take a wonderful bath of soft water. The area around Aveiro, called silver coast, is full of activities and things to do, since there are a wide variety of wines and gastronomic options, sports and fishing activities in the river and sea as well as caves, restaurants and night life.

About the neighbourhood
In the area around you can take many different tours by yourself. We will advise a lot of them. Car rental is recommended to explore all around, beaches, landscapes, traditional and small villages and fishing harbors, and the secular boat trips called “moliceiros”, name of the very old boats for harvesting of algae from the river “Ria de Aveiro” for fertilizing fields. Nature circuits for seeing birds in the fields of the lagune 'Ria de Aveiro' are very interesting.
