So Much To Do

Cool Off With A Swim Or Paddle

Take a picnic on one of our many hiking trails and cool off  before lunch with a swim. With so much to do and see you will be needing one of our comfortable beds to sleep well and recover for the next days adventure!

The area surrounding Quinta da Fonte is home to several natural pools that have been formed by local streams. Information about those ‘praias fluviais’ (river beaches) is available in our library and is free for the asking, as are detailed descriptions of the local walking routes.

Take a wonderful canoe trip around one of the many rivers or lakes near Quinta da Fonte. What could be better than lazing around and discovering the beautiful scenery central Portugal has to offer. Indulge and relax!


There are so many beautiful places near our wonderful Quinta. One such place is Casal de São Simão, a traditional Portuguese Schist village. It has many sign posted hiking trails with distance, timings and ability levels. Nearby is a wonderful swimming and sight seeing area set within a natural gorge. Truly worth a visit!
