Quinta dos Frades is a beautiful villa with private pool and gardens, lovingly situated, for all the family in the countryside. There is a wide view of fields and cultivated farmland and the wild fenced area with sliding gate also has parking for 3 cars. Please expect noise from farm animals due to the villas situation in the countryside.

There are three bedrooms each with fitted wardrobes, patio windows that have thermal blinds and all have acccess to the terrace that surrounds the building.

I own Tiffany's Riding Centre to the south of Quinta dos Frades. I know the area very well and if you want tips on where to go, what to see or where to eat, I would be happy to help you. If you require any help during your stay we are just down the drive at the riding centre.
There are neighbours nearby that have cats, dogs, chickens and other animals, the villa is fenced to limit the possibility of animals visiting.
There is a maid who comes at 09.30am twice a week to clean the villa.
Gardeners come twice a week to water the trees and plants.
Poolman visits once a week.
The Villa is recently renovated, clean and tidy and we appreciate that you keep it this way.
Our aim is to present the villa in excellent condition for our guests to enjoy. We therefore kindly ask that all guests respect the property, it´s contents and the neighbours.
Strictly no smoking inside of the villa, smoking permitted outside only.
Sorry no pets allowed.
Glass is not to be used in or around the pool.
Fun loving, friendly person with a passion for life. I enjoy horse riding, reading books and cooking. Whilst I would love to travel around the world I have too many animals on my farm to get away much.
I have been living in Portugal since 1983. My parents and grandparents bought the land in the valley where Quinta dos Frades and my Riding Centre are situated, originally wanting to be self sufficient. We still have a small permaculture garden, and other than the horses (26) and dogs(9) on the farm, we also have chickens (?), turkey and pigs (2).
