We spend a few days at Quinta do Monteverde, from time to time, and it had been a while. Everytime we go there, there is something new, planned by our dear and restless hosts Fátima and Zé to enhance the marvellous comfort and quiet of the place. This time, it was the renewed dining room, installed in the centuries old "lagar" (wine or olive press). The decoration is impressive, in the line of the main house's elegant but comfortable furniture, and the food was really excellent, up to high standards of the portuguese northern cuisine.
I guess the only thing that has remained the same along these years is the wonderful hospitality of the couple. Definitely a must for anyone wanting to enjoy the living of a family "solar" and forget about *all* the problems of life. For those happy with *almost*, they do have Internet ...
In that case, I'd surf by the swimming pool :-)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This manor house was built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Cunha Lobo Barbosa and Sottomayor family just 1 km from the sea. In 1820, the Genoese Judge Luigi Vital Monteverdi married the owner of the estate and the house became to be known as Quinta do Monteverde. The manor house was completely renovated but the interior retains the touch of the seventeen hundreds. Quinta de Monteverde is a walled estate between the hills and the sea and close to the river mouth. In Castelo do Neiva, the sandy beach rolls on and on; sand dunes and unspoilt stretches lend a wonderful sense of isolation to the surroundings. ... more less
