We do not offer breakfast, instead we provide guests with a 'Welcome Pack' consisting of local produce such as wine, bread,cheeses, meats, freshly laid eggs and much more.
We offer free WIFI to our guests in the form of a portable WIFI box, this means you can take it away from the Quinta on your days out and still stay connected. WIFI password available in the Welcome Pack.
Quinta Da Madrugada is set in 6 Hectres of woodland walks, here you will find our 1 hectre goat pen, frog ponds, water mines, caves and old stone ruins. The land is available to all guests to relax and enjoy.
Here at Quinta Da Madrugda we pride ourselves on cleanliness and employ fantastic cleaners to ensure your stay is as clean and comfortable as possible. We offer a half day cleaning service should you stay for more than 1 week. Use of our own laundry can be organised should you need it.
The salt-water swimming pool is great in the summer to cool off or sunbathe. The salt-water is much healthier for guests than the usual chlorine swimming pool as it is skin and hair friendly . The pool is exclusive for guests and is cleaned 3 times a week (usually between 8am-10am).
As we also live on the estate (around 100m from the Quinta) you may sometimes notice our 3 beautiful Golden Retriever dogs and our 3 friendly cats. Our dogs are kept safe and secure in their outdoor pen so will never bother you, but you are more than welcome to come and say hello!
We are also dog friendly should you want to bring your own dog/s and have a separate dog kennel next to the Quinta for your dogs needs.
SEE AND DO
Kayaking,canoeing and fishing.
We have a beautiful river which flows through our valley and kayaking is very popular in the summer, just simply ask us and we can arrange for you to use them.
Fishing is also very popular here and we can set you up with a fishing license and fishing equipment if required.
We are blessed to have so many different types of bird here at Quinta Da Madrugada, why not sit back and watch the family of eagles, they are seen circling our land everyday or borrow some of our binoculars and/or camera and take some beautiful pictures.
Quinta Da Madrugada is situated in rural Portuguese countryside and so we are surrounded by farms and farm animals. If you or your children would like to visit one, we have multiple friends who would love to see you on their farm. Here you can pick your own eggs and seasonal vegetables.
Half day Serra Da Estrella Tour
The Quinta overlooks the breathtaking Serra Da Estrella mountain range and in the range is the mountain 'Torre'. Soaring 1993 meters above sea level and with vast views of the Portuguese landscape. We would love to take you and your party to see the sights. They have numerous gift shops and a great restaurant. We highly recommend this, alternatively we can point you in the right direction and you can enjoy Torre as a private party.
River beaches and walks
Oliveria do Hospital and the surrounding towns boast beautiful man made river beaches, which are a brilliant way to spend your day. Most have a restaurant or bar for refreshments and the rivers have been certified safe for swimming. We have plenty of brochures to guide you on which one to choose.
