Quinta da Estrela (the Farm of the Star) is an adventurous and small holiday-park at the foot of the Serra da Estrela ( the Mountains of the Star) in central Portugal. Here you can enjoy a relaxing holiday and casual fun!
Our Quinta (14hec) actually belongs to the giant, but over the years parceled, area: Quinta das Fontainhas (the Farm of Fountains). The name refers to the large presence of springs and rivers. The picturesque village of Vila Franca da Serra is within walking distance . There is a lot of hospitality from the locals, and you can use the communal washing places and bread oven. Stroll through the small streets, enjoy all the sheeps and olive groves of the village and have a drink at "Elipio's bar"!
Tree houses for rent and our own house, a bar, a pool and a jacuzzi are spread over several terraces and between large rocks of granite. Each house has a sweeping view of the Serra da Estrela and they are far apart from another, so everyone can enjoy silence and privacy. The bar area with pool, jacuzzi and playground is located centrally and accessible for all guests.
Cool off in our pool during the hot days (from April/May to October) and you can soak in the jacuzzi under a starry sky in the evening. At our little bar (with wifi) you can taste a chilled Portugese wine or fresh fruit juice. In the evening we serve delicious meals, except on Sunday and Monday. We use tasty and fresh local products!
Near the bar there is an out-door table for table tennis, a playground and a football field. Lovely walks depart from the Quinta and along the Mondego river. There are many fine places to swim in the neighborhood!
Be surprised by our authentic region, as it is know for its natural Beaty, delicious cheese, wines, olives and hospitality! Bem-vindo!
