Quinta do Rio Alva - Quinta Do Rio Alva Streepjes 1

About us

We are José, Sabine and Sem. José is 100% Portuguese, but came to the Netherlands with his parents at a young age. Sabine is 100% Dutch, but because of the many holidays in Portugal, she already has a big Portuguese heart. Our son Sem is 50% Portuguese and 50% Dutch. At 9 years old, he is a sociable, sweet and sometimes naughty little man.

Why move to Portugal?
For many years José has longed to return to his roots. Even though he has only lived in Portugal for a short time, this is the place where he feels at home. Since our first holiday together in this area (about 9 years ago) Sabine also sees the opportunity to build up an existence there. So we have already looked at quite a few houses in real life and online, before we 'discover' this house in the summer of 2017. Ideal especially for Sabine, because a 'job' in an office in another country of which you don't speak the language perfectly will be difficult.

We both have a passion for peace, space and outdoor life. Sabine has 25 years ago already called that she wanted to go into tourism, so after seeing this Quinta we were sold. A beautiful house, a super nice environment, plenty of opportunities for excursions, sports and leisure. 1+1 = 3.

We want everyone to enjoy this beautiful country in all its facets. With a visit to our Quinta we let you discover the "real" Portugal. For example, go exploring in authentic villages or larger cities or discover nature during beautiful walks or a mountain bike trip! Of course we have a folder where you can find all the information you need to visit the most beautiful places yourself. Need more information and tips? We are at your service.
