Quinta dos Carvalhos is a 70-hectare farm plot. It is 1.5 km from Castelo Branco (227 km from Lisbon and 390 km from Madrid) in the Beira Baixa region. It is one of Portugal's most charming regions with its unique historical towns and a large area of natural beauty. We are also close to historic Spanish towns, such as Alcántara where the highest bridge in the Roman Empire was build in 106 CE. Quinta features a country house dating back to the 17th century and home to the same family for five generations. The recent refurbishment gave it a new lease of life with refined interiors maintaining its historic charm. This is a one-of-a-kind spot for having picnics in a green setting and for watching the surrounding farm activity. The house is perfect for groups of friends, hunters, and families. You can feel right at home here in your own farmhouse, have a tea by the hearth, or enjoy breakfast served al fresco in one of the house's outdoor areas. You can also enjoy the wonderful local culinary produce.
Each bedroom in Quinta dos Carvalhos features refined, themed decoration. They all have panoramic country views, air con, a wardrobe / cupboard, Wi-Fi, and a private bathroom.
This farmhouse offers a range of activities. You can enjoy the sun loungers around the restored stone water. Here you can also cool off or have a drink. In addition, the stunning scenery, stretching for 70 hectares around, is perfect for an early morning walk. You can also go bird watching.
