This old farmhouse is the last house at the end of the road before you walk down to the river Alva.
If you are looking for peace and quit & being close to nature. Swimming in summer and sitting by the woodfire in winter this is the place to stay!
Please note: there is a minimum stay of a week.
You need to want to relax if you come to this place so no quick visits :-)
Come, feel at home and enjoy nature and the surroundings.
If you had enough of swimming, reading etc There are enough nice daytrips to make from our location.

Interaction with guests
We are happy to show you around and advice on day trips. If you like we can organize a pizza party or cook a Portuguese meal for you.
We have canoes and lots of books ( NL and English literature) and games you can borrow.
Other things to note
Next to Fontanheira velha, a 5 min walk towards the village there is our house Vale das Botas. This is a bigger farm with more accomodation options. If you wish to come with a large family or group we can arrange different accomodation. We can accomodate around 10. There is a big house with 3 bedrooms (Casa do Sul), a smaller house for 2/3 (Tres Tulipas) and we have a yurt and 2 caravans. In summer you can also camp. See our other ads on airbnb for an impression. ( search for Tres Tulipas or Casa do Sul)
Please, No smoking in the house only outside.
In summer Portugal is very dry and has many forest fires which can start easily by 1 sigarette bud. Therefor you should be very carefull when smoking.

We are a Dutch family who spent the best holidays with family and friends on our farm in Portugal before we moved here permanently and now we want to share our Quinta with you! Come and enjoy the Portuguese countryside. Relax in the river or swimmingpool and feel at home.
Our farm is more than 150 years old and very fertile. We produce our own organic wine, grape juice and olive oil. We have dogs, a cat and a black pony.
