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 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 Rural Escape @ Friends; very local, small scale set up, peaceful, spacious and child friendly!
