The
Experience

An atmospheric place brimming with charm and history, the quinta once belonged to the Knights of Malta and came to the Alavaiázere family over 400 years ago when an ancestor, the King’s physician, received it in recognition of his years of loyal service. Today the estate consists of the imposing manor house, the original chapel, various outbuildings converted into a huge sitting and games area and four cottages, and eighteen hectares of parkland; it can take up to thirty guests yet no-one feels squashed. In the main house the B&B rooms have space, colour and lovely antique beds. Climb the marble stairs for more antiques, ancestral portraits and sporting trophies. Warm and eager Nuno and Clara have designed their cottages for the comfort of guests with old stones and timbers, good furniture and small modern kitchens. You have views to the mountains, a big pool, farm animals to keep children entertained and miles of footpaths. Beautiful historic Portugal is right on your doorstep: drive out to world-famous Fatima, the country’s greatest religious site, superb gothic monasteries, castles, fishing villages and more.

Reviews

We arrived in the rain but the cold weather was soon forgotten by the warm welcome we were given upon arrival, together with a glass of wine in front of a log fire. We had dinner in the family dining room and thoroughly enjoyed learning some of the fascinating and extensive history surrounding the house and the family from the owner.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Nuno Vasconcelos

  • Ourem Castle just 3km away. This medieval castle is located on top of an isolated mountain that rises out of vineyard-filled and olive groves valley. Take a stroll through the cobbled stone streets and don´t forget to try the famous licor "ginjinha".
  • Tomar is the jewel in the crown of Central Portugal. It is a magical city bursting with handsome architecture and historical significance such as the Convent of Christ classified as UNESCO World Heritage, Synagogue, Castelo de Bode, Templar Castle and more
  • Batalha's abbey is one of Europe's greatest Gothic masterpieces and is a UNESCO World Heritage monument. The roofless Unfinished Chapels are perhaps the most astonishing part of the monument.
  • Alcobaca Monastery, UNESCO World Heritage. Its excellent state of preservation makes it the finest example of Cistercian architecture in Europe. Don´t miss the 18m high kitchen with a huge open fireplace and fish tank where the monks ate in silence.
  • Nazaré, the most famous fishing town in Portugal, reknown for its atmosphere and traditions that still live on. Depending on the season, you might just catch a glimpse of some of the biggest waves (100ft).
  • Take an afternoon to go horseback riding through the property with a professional and enjoy the countryside or take a Traditional Portuguese Cuisine Cooking Class in a 17th century kitchen. Upon request and payment.
