Quinta da Madrugada is in the heart of central Portugal, a very rural area and an area where you can still experience traditional Portuguese life first hand. Our beautiful village of Avô boasts a Xist River Beach designation in light of it's natural beauty and location. Two mountain rivers converge into a fresh water beach with swimming areas, sunbathing areas and a beach bar. This beach is one of many in the area and is very popular as a Portuguese holiday respite. From here you are but minutes away from the Serra Estrela mountains, the biggest Natural Park in Portugal and the only ski resort in Portugal. The walking and cycling is fantastic with many international cycling events taking place here. The quaint local villages all have small shops and a café or two and there are usually small local fiestas most weekends throughout summer offering local produce and crafts. The local produce is amazing from the very famous Serra cheeses, smoked presunto ham and sausages to the bacalhau (salt cod), not to mention local liquors and wines.
The famous university city of Coimbra is about 40 minutes away where you can soak in the culture and the famous Fado music. In addition our location is rich with surrounding historic towns and castles bearing evidence of Portugal's numerous fights for independence over the centuries.
