Quinta do Rio Alva

A Bed & Breakfast and Glamping in the middle of nature, on one of the cleanest rivers in Portugal, the Rio Alva. That is Quinta do Rio Alva. Located in central Portugal, the green heart, between Arganil and Tábua in the village Mouronho (Ronqueira).

Onze Quinta is voor iedereen, van de rustzoeker tot de sportieveling en van het verliefde stelletje tot een gezin of vriendengroep. Mocht je een locatie zoeken voor een retraite, een creatieve week, of een ander soort week, wij staan open voor samenwerkingen. In de herfst van 2019 organiseerden wij met een collega B&B een zangweek, dit was een daverend succes. In September 2020 en 2021 hebben wij in totaal 3 Women Empowerment/yogaweken gehost. 

The B & B has 4 tastefully decorated rooms, each with its own unique view of the beautiful surroundings. Furthermore, each room has a TV, a filled mini-bar and an ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet. 

Next to the house we also have a lovely pool, with spacious terrace around it. Here you can sit on sunbeds, under the parasol and enjoy the tranquility or a good book. At the pool we also have a bar, where you can get cold drinks and ice cream for a small fee. In the upper garden we have a large outdoor kitchen with a wood oven (for delicious pizzas) and 2 BBQs (gas and wood), our guests may of course use. You can (depending on the time) picking fruit from the many trees. To (outdoor) games no lack! Everything is available; football goal, trampoline, archery and for a fee you can book a SUP-lesson.

Who we are

José - Sabine & Sem

Bom dia!

Wij zijn José, Sabine en Sem. José is 100% Portugees, maar al op jonge leeftijd met zijn ouders naar Nederland gekomen. Sabine is 100% Nederlands, maar door de vele vakanties in Portugal, heeft ze al een groot Portugees hart. Sem is daarmee 50% Portugees en 50% Nederlands. Met zijn 9 jaar is hij een gezellig, lief en soms ook ondeugend mannetje.
