Small scale set up and Portuguese hospitality
Portugal feels like a village. Their hospitality is great and Quinta do Carmo shows this in their small scale set up, privacy and personal attention.
The owners Paula and Jorge take good care of their property and guests. We, Maurice and Sandra, support them with the rental, holiday information and remain your contact person during the booking process as well as holiday period.
The Carmo family takes care of the animals, the maintenance and assure your privacy. Sometimes the grandparents like to prepare a typical Portuguese meal for the guests. Although they don´t speak another language, it always gets cozy and the local wine tastes always for more!
The location of the Quinta
The small holiday resort Portugal is situated at the Silver coast, a nice area along the sea, north of Lisbon. Full with culture and nature but without the level of mass tourism like in the Algarve or at the Spanish coast. The small scale holiday Portugal Quinta is approx. 1.5 hours drive from Lisbon airport. Located close to the typical fisherman´s village Nazeré with its beautiful beaches. The romantic village of Alcobaça with its famous monestry and love story of Don Pedro & Donna Ines is not far as well. The Quinta has access to 2 different tiny villages: holiday villa Joana to Casal Pinheiro and the holiday lodges to Fragosas.
In between you have the local small supermarket and a pub. Here you find your basic groceries as well as a good espresso, a nice cake or a beer with some nuts. Of course all locals are watching you. This is part of your holiday experience at Quinta do Carmo; very local, small scale set up, peaceful, spacious and child friendly!
Small holiday resort with Football field
The small holiday Portugal resort has a common football field. Here you can imitate the famous Portuguese player Cristiano Ronaldo, take your penalties, play the game!
Also in common, you have an enormous park containing a play garden for the kids or get familiar with the goats, sheep, bird and the donkey Gabi!
Next to those animals we have Gil, an old golden retriever and friend of everybody. He “guards” the Quinta……or this lazy old bastard sleeps most of the time but also likes to play if you release him. Quickly he gets tired and finds his favourite spots on the Quinta. At the child friendly and small holiday resort Portugal Gil is enjoying his retirement in the perfect climate!
Every knows the last minute stress before you can leave to your paradise in the small holiday resort Portugal. There is no time left to go to the hairdresser. No problem because Paula, the owner of the holiday Quinta, is one of the best hairdressers of Portugal. As guest she receives you even with more hospitality in her salon in Alçobaca. Much cheaper then at home and you will have your good looks during your holiday!
Or visit her husband Jorge in his shop for the perfect hair products, in Leiria shopping center. His shop can be found in the biggest shopping mall in the neighbourhood, a half an hour drive. You will find a lot of Portuguese brands, nice restaurants and a big cinema. You will have a nice and cool indoor visit for hot days as well as rainy days. Besides you can combine your shopping experience with a visit to the nice old city centre of Leiria.
