Home away from home in a location that offers true silence at the foot of the Serra da Gardunha. Breakfast with home-made bread and freshly ground coffee awaits you in the morning after which you can explore the beauty of the Beira Baixa region or the peaceful comfort of the 5,3 hectares of land.

Quinta nas Colinas
Breakfast is standard included and offers you home-made bread and freshly ground coffee in the morning. Depending on the room of choice you can enjoy a private bathroom, TV and airco. The bed and breakfast comes with a fully equipped kitchen for you to use as well as a comfortable common room/living room with seating areas, books, magazines and games for you to enjoy. The 5,3 hectares of land that come with the bed and breakfast is free for you to explore and has seating areas here and there and a hammock by the lake to enjoy your meal, books or surroundings.

The B&B comes with 5,3 hectares of land in development with a lake, some fruit trees and forest with views of Serra da Gardunha. Several sitting areas on the patio and further in the land offer privacy, sun or shade as you prefer. During the summer months the pool next to the house is open.

The area
Quinta nas Colinas is located at the foot of the Serra da Gardunha, just next to Serra da Estrela with wonderful trails to walk. The next village over one way, Casal da Fraga, has a spring that offers superb fresh, local water to fill up your bottles and comes with a seating area with picknick tables and a trail up the Serra da Gardunha. The next village on the other side, Almaceda, has a River Beach. Several lakes for swimming are nearby and a little further by car brings you to the historic villages like Castelo Novo or Monsanto. The village of São Vicente da Beira has an outdoor swimming pool in summer time. A large outside pool can be found in Castelo Branco. Larger cities in the area include Fundão (known for it's cherries, Castelo Branco and Covilha).

Eco
With 12 solar panels, Quinta nas Colinas provides a large part of it's energy on the land itsself, the rest is green energy from the grid. Over time the land will develop into a sustainable, biodiverse land in the philosophy of permaculture. This will include goats, chicken and a larger scale vegetable garden too, once more settled. Local honey and jam is offered from surrounding mountain villages.
