Sustainable travel tips
Take note of the sustainable travel tipsto Portugal and in Portugal.
Shuttle service and local car rental
We have made arrangements with a local and by us trusted car rental company as an extra service to have you picked up at / taken away to the airport and rent you a car locally. Conditions are more comprehensive by default and very competitive with the car rentals at or nearby airport. In addition, it is much more relaxed. You can also rent here if you are not spending your entire vacation at one of our accommodations. Read more about the car rental.
Now also electric car rental directly with us
We make electric car driving on holiday possible and affordable for our guests as an extra service with the rental of our own electric cars. No need to worry about “where to charge”. You can do this simply at our Quinta or with our charge card and tips along the way.
Easily accessible and centrally located
The vacation park is located about 105 km north of Lisbon airport and 220 km from Porto airport. It is centrally located in central Portugal, near the coast. The vacation park is not remote and is easily accessible. Even the “last kilometers” are not unpaved, steep or very winding.
Fine on arrival at Quinta das Cantigas
Personalized welcome and arrival times
You can arrive 24 hours a day, so you don’t have to consider that when booking your flight. Please do tune in your expected arrival time as there is no 24-hour reception.
Basically, we receive all guests personally and we give you a short tour. Only if you arrive very late in the evening or night, we will give you the tips on how to get in and we see each other the next morning.
Breakfast, lunch and/or evening meal package
A short period before arrival you can indicate if you want to use this extra service. That’s a relaxing start of the vacation and you don’t have to go out right away to do some shopping.
Beds made up
Just nice that the beds are made and also at no extra cost
Delicious bottle of local wine
As a welcome, a nice wine is waiting for you from a local quality winery.
Wallbox and possibly portuguse charging card for your electric car
We are getting more and more guests coming in their own electric cars. As an additional service, you can charge locally with us and should you have problems charging in portugal, we have several charging passes available that are sure to work in Portugal. Ask for it!
Our pets are often our greatest friends, even on vacation, so they are usually welcome with us. We cannot accommodate too many at once, so first come first served….ask about the possibilities. We have clear rules for keeping pets in the accommodation and on the grounds. We also charge a fee for this extra service for extra consideration in the cleaning of the accommodation and grounds.
