We stayed there for a long weekend and we absolutely loved it! We wanted to have a few calm days off and we couldn't have wished for a better place. Martina and Bernd are very thoughtful, helped carry our bags, provided us with some of the products they grow at their farm - honey, olive oil, tomatoes and chillies - for us to use of we wished, and always kept in touch in case we needed something. The accommodation in itself is wonderful, and the pictures show it nicely - take some time to enjoy the scenery from the winter garden or the balcony, and look at the stars by the little olive tree in front of the main door. All in all, if you're pondering to go to Viseu, do not hesitate to go to Quinta Bamboo, we will surely visit again!

What a gem! We truly fell in love with Martina and Bernd's place. They built a place where you can easily feel at home. They gave us such a warm welcome and were there for anything we needed. The apartment is well thought of, with all the necessary necessities and amenities. Comfy bed, plenty of room and seating and a great modern bathroom. The house is beautifully integrated into the rock and the surroundings. And the view is fantastic! We enjoyed it so much, that we decided to have our breakfasts and dinners outside on the balcony. Additionally, the location is ideal to explore all nature around. Four days are just not enough:-) It was really helpful to have a car, as the area has so much to offer, even the little villages and towns around. Martina and Bernd are great hosts - incredibly accommodating, fast with communication and detailed with their recommendations. We recommend guests to try the yoga and martial art practices. Both Martina and Bernd are experienced instructors, who truly devoted themselves to share their passion with others. We loved our lessons with them and highly recommend this place to the Airbnb community and others.

We've had an amazing holiday. Martina and Bernd are wonderful hosts. Before the holiday Martina was very helpful and responded very quick to our messages with questions. Once we arrived, they picked us up and helped us carry our luggage. We never had to ask for anything, everything was arranged very well. The house itself is very clean, with a few terraces where you can enjoy the lovely weather and surroundings. The neighborhood is absolutely great to visit. Nature is all around, and it is nice and quiet. There is lots to do such as great hiking trails, horse back riding, but also the yoga lessons from Martina were great. Overall, we do not have anything that we did not like. We will be back for sure! :)

Our first trip to Central Portugal and we feel extremely lucky to have found Quinta Bamboo. Martina and Bernd have created something special on a plot of land in a green, scenic valley. The studio apartment is clean, spacious (for 2 people) and well appointed - with a terrace to enjoy sunset over the mountains. Try the activities... Martina is a calm, clear and instructive ashtanga yoga teacher. Bernd a passionate martial artist, who will patiently introduce you to one of three disciplines he has mastered. We loved trying both and suggest you do the same. We arranged for vegetarian meals (at a reasonable cost per meal) and they were generous and delicious. Most ingredients are grown within 50 steps of the studio. Thank you Martina and Bernd, we will return xxx

Martina and Bernd were so welcoming. They came and guided us into their lovely hillside retreat from a nearby town. Bernd carried my heavy case down to the beautifully renovated cottage. We enjoyed watching the sun go down in the evenings and painting the view across to the patch worked hillside. A classic Portuguese view:) Our walk to the river was picturesque and we loved stumbling across the ruins along the way. I wish we had stayed longer.

hello, we are Martina and Bernd. We are living with our daughter Zsa Zsa in the heart of Portugal and try to realize our idea of a healthy and happy life in nature.

Since 15 years we work on our farm with an organic garden, food forest and bamboo garden. We want to do our best to inspire others to protect and preserve the natural world by living a simpler, greener lifestyle and we invite our guests to enjoy products from our garden.

We run a small business with a guest house, apartment and a wooden zen house.
The guesthouse is to rent as a complete house or partially as an apartment. It was once an old granite stone house and has been extended and renovated by us with traditional and modern eco-friendly materials.
The wooden zen house was designed and build by us according to the idea of the Japanese Zen minimalism.
Our 2 hectares boast natural bamboo, olive and fruit trees, the ideal surroundings for those who enjoy nature at its best. You can relax and take in the beautiful surroundings or take part in some of our arranged activities.
As we are the founders and organizers of the Taekwon-Do Academy Tábua and Yoga Chikitsa Portugal where we give ongoing local courses, we offer the possibility of daily personalized yoga practice at our farm. It is also possible to train Taekwon-Do and Wing Chun Kung Fu, as we are qualified teachers.
