A few days in Porto and a few days in the countryside
City - Countryside
Bookings / Info?
Besides our apartment in Porto we have two lovely bed & breakfast or self catering cottages for guests in the countryside of central Portugal.
This "Quinta", called Quinta da Abelenda is very well located between the mountain ranges of the Serra da Estrela and the Serra do Caramulo, 50 km van Coimbra and 150 km from Porto.
The Quinta and the city of Porto make a perfect combination, which will allow you see two different faces of Portugal.
Porto and Quinta da Abelenda are very easy to reach one from another, both by car (90 minutes) and train (we will pick you up at the station).

At the Ecopista do Dão
The 4 hectare Quinta da Abelenda borders the beautiful Ecopista do Dão, a 49 km biking and hiking path that leads all the way to the city of Viseu, a former railway following the Dão river for miles
Because of the fact that it used to be a railway line, it is easy to cycle in this mountainous area.
By the river Dão
The quinta is very well located at just 200 meters from the river Dão. The river is very wide near Quinta da Abelenda, because it is part of the artificial Lake of Aguieira.
Cycling, hiking and horseback riding.
Or doing nothing
We rent bicycles, we organize riding tours, and it is a beautiful area for walks.
But the quinta is excellent as well for doing nothing.
