Holiday resort Quinta das Cantigas – heated swimming pools

Quinta das Cantigas is gradually becoming the new name for Casa Cantiga. 15 Years ago, we started with a “Casa” but grew to a small, sustainable and child friendly holiday park near Alcobaça and Nazaré. Here we have 10 holiday accommodations, each with their own privacy  and nice common play and relax areas. The facilities are spread over  10.000 m2 in a beautiful nature.  The holiday resort is situated close to the amazing coastline of the Costa da Prata in the area of Nazaré. From the holiday resort you have a beautiful view to the Serra dos Candeeiros, a small mountain range looking over the hills.

At Quinta das Cantigas you can relax in or next to the heated  swimming pools, the various sun or shade terraces or in the hammock below the olive trees. We have a big indoor and outdoor playground with amongst others  play boat, ping pong table, sandpit, swing, tree house and trampoline.  Let´s not forget the minigolf and playing in the small forest at the resort. There are goats, guinea pigs and the birds are singing in the morning. The garden is full with special trees like olive trees, fruit trees, real Portuguese cork trees and and pin trees.

The biggest waves of the world can be found at the coast of Nazare. The world championship surfing takes place in Peniche. Enjoy quiet lagoons, bays and endless beachesDolphin spotting or a visit to the islands of Berlenga is also unforgettable. In addition you can do all kinds of sportive activities like surfkite surfmountain bike and hiking.


Sustainable holiday!

In the last 10 years we already realized a lot of “sustainable development” via solar panels, renewable energy contracts,  solar heated warm water systems, driving electric cars and of course separation of waste.  In 2019 we started to encourage the offsetting of your “CO2 emissions or carbon footprint” from your journey. For this you can make a donation at the reservation to support local tree planting projects. This is especially necessary after the big forest fires. We will double each donation and make sure that it ends up locally. The next step is to develop even more and  to evolve. Check our link for more information about our sustainable planl. That’s why in 2022 we have our business certified by the Biosphere Responsible Tourism Industry”.
