The holiday home
Quinta do Vale is located at the foot of the Serra da Estrela on the edge of the village Aldeia das Dez. The holiday home is located on a mountain due south. Quinta do Vale, literally translated, means “estate of the valley”.
The quinta was purchased in 1997 and completely restored. The buildings on the quinta are made of granite blocks and have been restored to their original state. The quinta consists of 2 main buildings and a number of outbuildings that are used as barns.
One of the main buildings has been completely renovated and is now used as a guest house.
In total, the site covers 6.6 hectares. Part of it is used as a garden around the 2 houses. The other part is forest. On the quinta there are many grapevines, but also olive trees, citrus and other fruit trees, interspersed with flower beds. Its own wine is made annually and alcohol is also distilled for the aguardente and liqueurs. One of the grape vines is more than 120 years old.
From the quinta you have a view of the village but also of the Serra da Estrela. The quinta is a 5-minute walk from the village.
In the village are a few small shops for basic necessities and cafes. You will also find our own tapas bar Plano5 here. Oliveira do Hospital is 20 minutes away by car. Here you will find supermarkets, shops, daily market, banks and other amenities.
