Description - Bed and breakfast

This magnificent Quinta (farmhouse) was built by an Englishman in the late 1800´s. The house is built of fine granite, partly into a terrace. The high ceilings on the ground floor at over 4 meters keep the house cool even on the hottest of days. The original features have been retained in a beautifully authentic restoration. The 3 suites located in the top of the house incorporate the original pine beams giving a true wow factor. A fine oak staircase accesses the river suites. The large sitting rooms with comfy sofas give genuine feeling that you are at home! The 3 suites on the ground floor, with their original 3-meter pine shutters, are accessed from the reception and have a real Portuguese theme. Should you wish to join us for dinner (cooked by our daughter Caroline - ex pastry chef at the Michelin starred Glasshouse at Kew), this can be booked in the morning. For those interested in wine we have a 1. 9-hectare vineyard! See guest reviews on This magnificent Quinta (farmhouse) was built by an Englishman in the late 1800´s.

This is rural Portugal. Parada de Gonta sits between the Caramulo mountains and the Serra da Estrela mountain range. Within a 15-minute drive the enthralling old town of historic Viseu where museums, wineries and locally produced crafts are found. The markets in Tondela (Monday), Viseu (Tuesday) and in many of the surrounding small villages are always colourful and full of bargains. The university city of Coimbra with outstanding architecture and internationally renowned shops is only 45 minutes away. A stop off at Fatima on the way to Lisbon is a great day out and certainly recommended.

Buying you own property There are many stunning granite properties for sale in and around the locality. We have built up a team of specialists from brick suppliers to real craftsmen carpenters. Contacts with local English speaking lawyers and banks can be introduced. Now is the time to look at investing in this area as at present there are real bargains to be had.

Vineyard visits We have many contacts with local wine producers and would be happy to help plan your itinerary. The visits can incorporate wine and in some cases local food tastings. There is a nominal charge for some of the visits

Gastromania We have many superb local restaurants serving traditional Portuguese foods. We can arrange a local village taxi service so you may also enjoy the fine local wines and leave your car at home with us.

Golf Information The Montebelo Golf course is only a 10-minute drive from us and has some of the finest views from its mountain fairways. The 18-hole golf course has many testing features and has a further 9 holes nearing completion this year. The course is a par 72 6. 317 meters.
