"Quinta da Fontinha" is a beautifully restored Hotel / B & B in the vicinity of Tábua, located in the green heart of Portugal. This unique property is entirely built of granite bricks and has retained the charm of the time it was built, about 100 years ago. The whole consists of a main building and a number of outbuildings that together surround a cozy courtyard where you can enjoy breakfast or have a drink. A small swimming pool offers coolness in the warm summer months.
The plot size of over 1.3 hectares consists of 2 terraces separated by authentic granite / slate terrace walls. The orchard covers a large part of the land, which includes citrus, fig and olive trees and of course the Portuguese grapes have their sunlit place. At the front of the property is a well-groomed Mediterranean garden where you can enjoy the beautiful colourful flowers and plants around you.
The large garage is suitable for 3 cars. The adjoining carport offers space for a camper / caravan and there is plenty of parking.
