Luxury villa set into the hillside overlooking the Serra da Estrela mountain range and Alva Valley. The villa boasts an 8m x 4m private salt water swimming pool, BBQ and outdoor eating area. The villa and pool are private, set in 12 acres of woodland

The space

With spectacular mountain views, this purpose built villa, is open and spacious with two en-suite bedrooms and two bedrooms with single beds sharing a bathroom . The living and dining and cooking areas are well equipped and open plan all facing the mountains through huge sliding windows.
We have our own mountain water supply, hot water from solar or in the winter,the wood fired stove and full central heating from the wood fired stove. The wood is sustainably managed from our own land and is provided free of charge. The private pool is 8m x 4m and is salt water, so kind to hair and skin. Open terraces, an outdoor dining area and substantial BBQ make that alfresco dining complete. The base price is the lowest per person rate, however the Quinta is priced up to 4 people per night as a minimum.

Guest access

The whole house, outdoor dining area, the BBQ and pool are private for your sole use. You may also explore our terraced land and woods and take walks on the tracks leading from the property.

Other things to note

The access to the property is via unpaved forest tracks, basic cars manage fine on the tracks but low clearance cars especially those with low profile tyres are not recommended.

The best hosts! Stephen and Elizabeth went above and beyond caring for our group while we stayed with them. So easy to communicate with and were so friendly and helpful. We had a group of 9 friends, the house was big enough to accommodate us all very easily. Very spacious with all the necessities, lovely Egyptian cotton sheets and an eye for detail made it all the better, ridiculously good value for money! Set in magical surroundings with beautiful views. The road in was a bit tricky but walking up the last fifty metres didn't bother us. And a normal car would be easily able to get up, we had a large people mover. Wes' bar down the road in the town of Avo was very fun and cheap, and Wes treated us incredibly well too! We had the best time and hope to make it back to Avo sometime soon. Thanks again Stephen, Elizabeth, Nora and Bear, from all our group!

The house is just as described, great view, nice swimmingpool and very kind hosts. Our only advice is to make sure you have a good car as the road to the house was a little difficult for us. Apart from that we would advise you to stay with Stephen!!

If fancy hotels and English bars aren't your thing then this Quinta may be for you. Breathtaking countryside, tranquility, wildlife, stunning views, rivers, traditional ancient villages are what you get here and much more. Amazing location, quality accommodation and great hosts.

Nous avons passé un très bon moment dans cette maison. Stephen & Elizabeth nous ont très bien accueillit. Nous avions sélectionné cette maison pour sa vue et nous n'avons pas été déçu, elle est simplement à couper le souffle. La piscine est très agréable. La décoration intérieur n'est pas moderne mais tout est fonctionnel et en parfait état. Le petit chemin qui mène à la maison ajoute du charme, on se sent isolé. (attention ce chemin n'est pas goudronné, nous avons pu y accéder en mini, mais c'était limite, une voiture plus basse ne passera pas). Nous reviendrons avec plaisir !

Interaction with guests

We live in a smaller house on the land but secluded away from the guest house to afford you full privacy. We will welcome you, change linen at appropriate times throughout your stay and be at hand should you need assistance. We also offer the free of charge service of doing your initial shopping (payment for groceries upon arrival) so that when you arrive you can relax for the first few days.
