The secluded villa provides a taste of rural unspoiled Portugal. Quinta da Madrugada, is perched on a hillside in 12 acres of private woodland and terraces just waiting for you to explore, and is surrounded by small rural villages deep in the heart of central Portugal. The sweeping good quality tarmac roads and off road tracks through woodland and mountains make this an ideal get away for cyclists and walkers, and of course for those who would like to lounge by the private 8 x 4m salt water 'vista' swimming pool and feel that they have climbed a mountain, but have not actually had to do so. This well equipped villa is located on the edge of the Serra da Estrela Natural Park and has far re...

The house is wonderful, Elizabeth and Stephen are the perfect hosts and the area in which the house is situated is fabulous . We explored extensively both on foot with a few good walks and by car and I will share some pictures, however some of the best moments were spent having superb chilled out breakfasts and evenings sat outside...

This holiday location is amazing. The views are stunning, the villa is amazing, Elizabeth and Stephen are fantastic hosts. Nothing was too much for them. My kids are 9 and 11 and there was more than enough for them to do without getting bored. The pool was great and home made pizza's in the bread oven were amazing. Well worth... more

We stayed for 2 weeks in mid August with our two children aged 13 and 11. Elizabeth and Stephen could not have been more welcoming and together they have created a perfect holiday haven. The house is beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. They have thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable and memorable. Our children loved the pool... more

How to get there
Airport: Porto: 185.0 km
Porto airport is the closest airport to Quinta da Madrugada and is less than a 2 hour transfer. You can also fly into Lisbon which is less than a 3 hour transfer.

Due to our rural location, we provide directions to all our guests and we will meet you at a local café bar and bring you to the house. The last part of the journey is circa 200m and on a well maintained public unpaved track. This is typical for the area and perhaps to be expected given our location and the stunning mountain and valley views.

Coimbra the famous university city is en-route to both airports and clients with late departure flights, often stop off to enjoy a last bit of architecture and visit the cathedral or perhaps buy some traditional Fado music to remind them of their stay.
