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.

The apartment is designed very creatively, very cozy and spacious in the lovely surroundings. The place has this positive energy, full of character. The studio is very spacious it contains all that you need for a very comfortable stay. If you are lucky to travel in winter time you can take advantage of sitting by the log fire and enjoy the lovely local wine. Great host!

We arrived very late in the evening to the Quinta, tired, exhausted & hungry from a long journey. Upon arrival, we met Bernd who greeted us with a warm smile, a lit fire, clean towels & some food to help with our hunger. The accomodations were clean, warm, tranquil & breathtaking. The quinta is located in a private setting within proximity of roads leading to other towns such as Tabua, Arganil, Pidiao, Coja, Benfeita, etc. Easy access to amenities such as supermarkets including Lidl, bistros, restaurants, bank and petrol station. The quinta itself is pastoral, quiet, idyllic with breathtaking views, gardens and peaceful zones for yoga and meditation. We had no trouble sleeping at night as it was quiet, the double bed was comfortable and the woodburner kept us warm & cozy. We were able to cook our meals in the full kitchen & a warm shower every night. Wifi was available for internet access. Bernd and Martina are the most wonderful hosts, down to earth & friendly; both practice and teach yoga. Our stay at Quinta Bamboo will never be forgotten; it exceeded all of our needs & expectations. We would gladly come back here to stay and highly recommend it to anyone who comes to Portugal for holiday. Thank you so much Bernd and Martina.

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.

Dream it, Wish it, Do it !
