Perfectly located in the Silver Coast, 15 min from the famous white sand/surf beach "Nazare" & surrounded by beautiful scenery & important must see attractions. Set on 1.7 hectares on a small mountain peak with picturesque views encircling the property, a small forest circuit, apple orchard & vineyard perfect for evening walks. The property is constructed with a typical Portuguese stone setting, green grass, old enchanting trees, BBQ area, cobble stone entrance, pool, Gazebo, free parking & more

The space
"Quinta da Boa Vida" is located in a small village approx 3-5 minutes away from the town of Alcobaca which is known for the UNESCO World Heritage site Monastery founded in the year 1153 by Portugal's first King Alfonso Henriques. It is the heart of the town's old historic centre and visited by millions from around Portugal and the World.

Our picturesque property consists of 5 independent apartments and lies on an elevated piece of land surrounded by valleys with a creek, rows of vineyards, apple orchards, countless olive and fruit trees of all sorts, mountain views and a small forest which gives you the impression you're in a remote country side, despite having most essentials and city amenities only minutes away.

We're just over 1 hour away from the Lisbon airport and conveniently located in between many historical sites and tourist destinations. Some of these include the University town of Coimbra, the medieval city of Obidos, Fatima where Mother Mary was said to appear, Nazare famous for the highest waves ever surfed, Tomar a picturesque in land city, Peniche the surfers paradise, Sintra known for it's Royal imprint and natural beauty, Cascais and more. We're also 10 minutes away from a national park with caves and steps away from a medieval park ideal for guests with children.

The Quinta itself offers a terrific blend of comfort and relaxation, with breath taking views that surround the resort. Our pool area is on the most elevated part of the property and receives direct sunlight from dusk till dawn. It has an outdoor shower, a wooden Gazebo with a grand circular table, with a grassy opening shaded by an ancient cork tree just next to it.

We also offer a communal BBQ area that has a metre long grill space that can satisfy the grill specialist in any group. There's also a traditional wood pizza/bread oven and running water/sink so that you and your loved ones can prepare an outdoor meal fit for any food lover.

On the lower part of the property, there is an open field with a small creek bed, made up from stones placed hundreds of years ago that has active water running during the winter months. Next to that you'll find a walnut tree that is well over a century and a half old that offers the perfect spot to read a book or enjoy a glass of wine. If you feel like a nice evening walk, or a quiet picnic, please enjoy our private mini forest complete with a small circuit and a stone picnic table along the way.

This charming two bedroom apartment offers a private patio that leads to the large wooden stairs and the rest of the property. It has high wooden chalet like ceilings and an open concept living/kitchen area.

The kitchen is colourful and fun, fully stocked and sure to satisfy any chef in your group. It has an oven and gas stove. There's a beautiful round table to enjoy a delicious meal, or simply each others company.

From the kitchen you can access the private patio. It's mostly encirlcled by trees for privacy (some of which have fruits), but also has a lovely view to enjoy.

The larger bedroom is quite spacious, has a queen size bed, closet space and two accent walls that show the rustic and humble history of the property. The smaller bedroom consists of a double bed that has a window and closet space.

The quinta is enclosed by a wall made "a Portuguesa" or "Portuguese style", only accessible through a typical iron gate and granite cobble stone entrance.
