QUINTA DO COVANCO - ALENQUER
A charming country house surrounded by attractive vineyards, located at the entrance of Alenquer, just 30 km away from Lisbon, allowing a thoroughly deserved holiday and just a few minutes drive from Sintra, Mafra, Queluz, Óbidos, Nazaré, Tomar and Fátima, in a region of extensive vineyards, and hills crowned with windmills, between a maritime coast with endless sandy beaches and the magnificent Tagus River.
The Quinta do Covanco is an estate with several centuries of history, situated in the historic municipality of Alenquer and characterised by a rural architectural style, deriving from the farming activities first developed here in the past, most notably the growing of vines.
The former country house was adapted to provide modern comfort and a high standard quality service. Six bedrooms (five double and one twin), all with en suite private bathroom are tastefully decorated, and completed by a vast living room with a gracious fireplace, and an appealing dining area, a well appointed kitchen and a games room with billiards pool. Ideal for sharing families or large groups, on holiday together, this property offers a barbecue area, ideal for outdoor meals, in an adorned garden.
A stroll through the farm, a visit to the historical village of Alenquer and Montejunto mountains, the flavour of homemade jams, cakes and biscuits, or enjoying some of the best Portuguese wines, produced in this property, are some of the highlights not to be missed. Golfing, horse riding, tennis, cycling, mountaineering, paintball, relaxing shiatsu massages, a refreshing dip in a traditional water tank, a Tagus River Boat trip or a visit to the magical Berlengas island (a maritime natural reserve of rare beauty), or even a day at the seaside are some of the endless leisure activities available.
