We spend 7 nights in this quinta. The valley is really beautifull with great big blocks everywere and the view on the river is superb. The appartment we spend in was clean and had everything we needed. The pool is quite big and the garden is also very nice. The owners are very helpfull and friendly.
There's lots to do: swimming, kayaking, rock-climbing, fishing or take a yoga-class. You can also get a massage from elana ( the owner). In the surroundings you can go to the national park, the countyside ( waterfall, small villages, walks) or to the villages of coimbra or viseu. All within 1 hour drive.

Thank you for your review !
