Great Hospitality and Setting

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks at Quinta do Mineiro . Peter & Maria are exceptional hosts and world class chef’s. They also have a very friendly dog named Heidi who is always there to greet you.This area of Portugal is filled with very old stone villages and numerous historical sites to visit. Many of these villages have festivals and small markets. Visitors are welcome to roam the numerous trails and back roads in the area. Peter and Maria have a beautifully maintained farm that produces delicious red and white wines and high quality olive oil. Everything produced on the farm is organic.

The holiday house features tile floors and a granite stairway. It has a nice fireplace that heats a small boiler of water that circulates through out the house for cooler evenings.
The kitchen has a stainless steel sink and a small dishwasher. There is abundant supply of dishes, cooking pans and other utensils. The house has a outside deck with comfortable furniture and great views. A recently completed stone BBQ will allow visitors to cook and eat meals outside. It even has a roof in case of rain.

Superb food in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful, but what impressed me more was Peter's cooking. He is really a master chef, and treated our party to a superb 6-course meal which was served up in the open air in the courtyard. Having a gazebo overhead helped with the initial drops of rain, but once it developed into a full-blown thunderstorm - and a spectacular one at that - we had no choice but to decamp and move into the kitchen.
Peter puts more than mere ingredients into his food - he imbues it with love for his guests and concern that they should have a gastronomic experience second to none. I will definitely make the effort to visit again - next time for a longer stay! Thank you Peter and Maria for a memorably sumptuous feast.

Wonderful Taste of Country Life

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I always want to discover different cultural practices when we visit a country. Our experience on the farm near Mantanca gave us insight into a traditional farm. Once we had navigated the narrow road to the gate, we were greeted by Peter who offered us a glass of his home made wine and took us on a tour of the house. What a wonderful surprise to find such a comfortably appointed. modern and well equipped home. The spacious two story accommodation is as depicted in the photos and described under amenities. The surrounding views are spectacular. Included are brochures and books to assist with planning excursions. Peter and Maria are gracious, attentive hosts who are very knowledgable about this part of the country. Maria was born on the land. We enjoyed walking into the villages that are close by and touring the scenic Estrela. This region of Portugal is rugged as one would expect with hilly, rocky terrain. There are many options available nearby to keep a visitor busy. Before we left, I purchased olive oil made from olives grown on the farm and had the opportunity to buy freshly baked bread that is delivered to the farm on Wednesday. I would highly recommend this traditional farm experience as a way to discover the real Portugal.

Country Bliss

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 3 wonderful days at Peter and Maria's house in Matanca as part of our 3 week trip to Portugal to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I found the house on the Home Away website and when we arrived at the house with Peter there to meet us, we were so thrilled to have such a beautiful house in the country.
The farm was lovely and the accommodations were brand new, very well appointed and so comfortable. Peter and Maria had fruit from there garden and there house made wine waiting for us.
During the day we toured the area enjoying the lovely mountain surroundings, the old Portugal charm of Matanca and the beautiful countryside. In the evenings the kitchen in the house was so well set up that making dinner and enjoying a lovely set table was no problem. Peter was a professional chef and it shows in the way the kitchen is stocked.
The house was so comfortable with a great deck to have our morning coffee and pastries and just enjoy the solitude and view.
I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to get off the beaten path and really enjoy the quiet in the country.
Peter and Maria are great hosts and if we someday return we will stay at Fornos de Algodres again.

Ein Traum auf dem Land!

  • 5 of 5
Fast zwei Wochen waren wir auf der Quinta do Mineiro in Matança. Ein Traum auf dem Land: die Quinta liegt inmitten grüner Flächen, Nachbarn gibt es nur in entfernter Sichtweite. Auf dem Grundstück stehen das Wohnhaus von Maria und Peter sowie das Ferienhaus.

Die Gastgeber Maria und Peter bewirtschaften hier einen großen Gemüsegarten und einen Weinhang. Dazu gibt es noch Olivenbäume, einen feinen Kräutergarten, Grillplatz, Schafe und die süße Hündin Heidi. Den Wein der Quinta und das ausgezeichnete Olivenöl sollte man unbedingt probieren, außerdem das Gemüse aus dem Garten.

Das Ferienhaus hat im Erdgeschoss eine voll ausgestattete Küche mit großem Sitzbereich. Eine Etage höher befinden sich das Schlafzimmer mit großem Doppelbett, Wohnzimmer mit zwei Schlafsofas, das Bad und der Zugang zur Terasse. Alles super ordentlich und sauber. Neben der tollen Ausstattung (extra Decke fürs Bett, wenn man sie braucht, zusätzliche Handtücher, Kerzen, Bücher, TV, WLAN, uvm.) gibt es eine Menge Stauraum für die eigenen mitgebrachten Dinge. Wir konnten uns praktisch wie zu Hause einrichten.

Maria und Peter sind sehr gute und aufmerksame Gastgeber. Man trifft sie fast immer auf dem Hof an und kann ihnen zu geplanten Touren, der Umgebung, portugiesischen Besonderheiten uvm. alle Fragen stellen. Beide hatten schon beruflich im europäischen Ausland viel mit Touristen/Gästen zu tun und die Erfahrung merkt man ihnen an.

Ausflüge in der Umgebung: Serra da Estrela (natürlich), ursprüngliche und historische Dörfer, jede Menge Burgen, von den Römern erbaute Straßen und Brücken, Nekropolen. Manches ist sogar fußläufig erreichbar, wie die Dolmen von Matança.

Bevor ich noch mehr schreibe: Von mir gibts eine 100-%ige Weiterempfehlung für Maria und Peter auf ihrer schönen Quinta do Mineiro! Danke für die schönen Tage bei euch!

Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5
Ich /Wir waren das 3. Mal auf der Quinta.Die Quinta wird jeden Ansprüchen gerecht, es ist Erholung pur! Die Ausstattung ist mehr als vollständig, TV, WLAN, es ist alles vorhanden und es ist pikobello sauber. Ob Ausflüge in die schönen Städte, ob Fahrten über die Dörfer, die wundervoll restauriert werden, ob Kontakt zu den superfreundlichen Portugiesen in den kleinen Cafés, wo man den Café zinho für 50 ct. bekommt oder ob Baden gehen, relaxen und Sonnenbaden auf der Terrasse, mit in den Weinberg gehen, Geocaching...irgendwas Tolles zu tun findet sich immer. Für Extrawünsche oder Auskünfte und Tipps sind Maria und Peter immer ansprechbar und hilfsbereit. Ich wurde sogar vom Bahnhof geholt und gebracht!
Man bekommt Land und Leute automatisch mit, das Leben in der Stadt und auf dem Dorf, die Historie (wenn man will...) und noch vieles mehr. Das selbst angebaute Gemüse schmeckt echt anders als das aus dem Supermarkt und den ein oder anderen Kochtipp vom Sternekoch probiert man auch gern aus ;-)) Unbedingt genießen muss man den eigenen Wein und kann auch Olivenöl von Bäumen auf der Quinta oder andre kleine Leckereien für zu Hause erstehen.
Ich komme wieder, spätestens wenn das Öl leer ist! Und freu mich schon jetzt darauf.
