About the Homestay
I live with my husband in an old farm, and keep many animals in our garden. (mule, donkey, sheep, goats, hens, chickens, geese and ducks, and we also have a dog and two cats.) In spite of all these animals it is quiet and peaceful. The garden is very big. We like to inform our guests about the region, the Portuguese people and the events going on. We have two apartments, a wooden house and a Yurt for guests.
Our Quinta is situated 10 km from the coast, the famous Costa de Prata, hundred kilometers from Lisbon. The Quinta is situated between two towns of Alcobaça and Caldas da Rainha. This region is very suitable for walking. There are many walks set out by people from the neighbourhood, but there are also possibilities to walk with a guide.
We speak English, Duth, German and Portuguese. We have a private parking-
We ornaise special weeks for people who can't or won't drive. look at: http://quintaantesovento.com/en/special-weeks/weekje-anders and walking weeks.
