Agroturismo Quinta da Fonte
Quinta da Fonte is a small farmhouse of about a 100 years old, which is restored into bed and breakfast in a great ambiance, a peaceful valley with great mountain views. The quinta is famous for its small restaurant, where dinners are served from vegetables off the own gardens, mainly biological products from the season and the surroundings. There is an authentic old ´forno´ (wood oven) which is used to make some of the meals. There are homemade marmalades, chutneys and other products for sale in the small shop. Electricity is available, but the owners try to use as little as possible and they have much attention for the environment and nature. Whenever you look for peace, quietness and nature this is the place to be! Each day we serve dinner for the guests (on reservation), vegetarian meals are possible, also diet food.
There are small but beautifully restored rooms for the guests in the old farmhouse and the buildings surrounding it, a campsite with twenty spots is situated alongside the small crystal-clear creek. You can order breakfast, lunch, dinner and all wishes concerning food will be thought off. In the bar, you also find a library with a small section of English books, family games and information books about excursions in the area as well as a book with route descriptions from hiking tours around the campsite. You can rent mountain bikes as well. For visits from November until February please make a reservation.
The area is perfectly suited for hiking. If you prefer hiking with a guide, this is also possible (on reservation). The accommodation is 4 km from a lake, where you can swim and sunbathe. There is a shuttle bus to pick you up at the lake. In the area are several praias fluviais (= natural swimming pools). There are a lot of places of interest you can visit, either by bus of train of by own car: Coimbra at 30 km, Conimbriga at 50 km, Tomar at 40 km en Lisboa and Porto are 2,5 hours by car.
