Located in the countryside of the Silver Coast, close to Caldas da Rainha, just about an hour drive up north from Lisbon and half an hour away from the coast, the astonishing beaches of Foz do Arelho and São Martinho do Porto and the Óbidos Lagoon.
Formerly known as "Quinta Encosta das Freiras”, this typical old Portuguese farmhouse (Quinta) consists of several annexes, a big room with a professional kitchen for events, a patio with a pergola, an extensive garden, two ponds and a beautiful pool with view over the surrounding scenery.
The space, the view and the energy of the Quinta make it ideal for group activities with 14 to 16 people, all kinds of workshops (painting, ceramic, cooking,…), meditation, yoga, sport and boot camps, family reunions, company events or just for a holiday to get away from it all, reconnect with nature and recharge the batteries.
We have just completed our renovation project, have completely redesigned our rooms and put in place everything you need for a beautiful relaxing holiday.
In line with this more natural and healthy lifestyle we offer our guests freshly cooked meals of local products with a strong focus on vegetarian and vegan dishes. Typical Portuguese fish and meat dishes can be found in the local restaurants.
Central Portugal has a lot to offer: Besides the breathtaking Atlantic coast, the beaches and the beautiful lagoon of Óbidos (kite surfers paradise), the picturesque little towns like Caldas da Rainha (thermal hospital and ceramics), Óbidos, Alcobaça and Nazaré (the big wave) are worth a visit. Go for a day trip to Lisbon, Porto, Coimbra or Fatima or visit the colourful and eccentric Buddha Garden in Bombarral. There are several golf courses nearby as well as some nice wineries.
We can’t wait to welcome you at our Quinta and show you this corner of Portugal!
