A stay in Bed & Breakfast Quinta Verde is all about peace, comfort and a relaxation. What's more, in the near vicinity you can discover the delights of the Portuguese culture, the fine food, hospitality and the beautiful coast. The climate is very mild during the whole year.
De Quinta is in a rural area just inland from the coastal area, de Costa de Prata (the Silver Coast).
There are several beautiful walks right on our doorstep. It's possible to stroll around our valley garden (15.000 m2) with its fruit trees. Or put on your walking shoes and follow one of the marked trails in the neighbourhood. For those wanting to walk at higher altitudes the mountainous national parks Serra de Aire and Serra de Candeeiros, to the east of the B&B, are definitely worth a visit.
The seaside resort São Marthino do Porto is just a 20 minutes drive away. Here you can swim in the tranquil bay. The beautiful sandy beach is ideal for children because of the calm, shallow waters. The resort also boasts a fine boulevard. The picturesque seaside resort of Nazaré has an attractive sandy beach surrounded by rocks on both sides. There's a long boulevard with shops and countless restaurants, where you can eat freshly caught fish.
Other places along the coast are: Salir do Porto, Foz de Arelho and Peniche.
A 10 minutes drive takes you to Caldas da Rainha, a pleasant city with nice shops and outdoor cafes. Every morning you can visit the characteristic Portuguese vegetable and fruit market.
A stroll through the narrow streets of Obidos, a walled Medieval town, is certainly to be recommended. From the city walls you have a magnificent view over the surroundings.
