The Quinta da Moenda has many extra services to offer, exclusively for guests. The spacious patio with an extra outside kitchen with a barbecue is unique. The large lightly salted swimming pool has an almost therapeutic effect.


The big (13x7m) and deep (2,25m) swimming pool adds a lot to a totally relaxed body and soul. The lightly salted water has a softening effect on the skin and doesn't irritate the eyes. You don't taste it, you don't smell it and it is more environmental friendly than chlorine.

Safe accommodation

We do everything we can to create a safe environment for you and your children. An elegant fence separates the patio from the pool, so that children don't walk into the water without being noticed. A gate closes the entrance to the small alley along the quinta. Safety first!

Clear river

The adjacent river Alvoco is a real bonus. Here children can play for hours on end with the water, sand and pebbles. They can swim and fish in the crystal clear water. The river beach is an excellent spot from which to take in the beautiful surroundings.

Outdoor kitchen

The outdoor kitchen with barbecue and oven offers all the comfort that you need. A large covered shady pergola by the pool attracts a cool breeze on the many warm sunny afternoons where you can sit and relax and enjoy the beautiful views. A patio is available for those evenings when you want to relax by candlelight around the pool. The starry night skies are so near you can almost touch them. The pool and barbecue area are for guests use only.


Communal lounge

We have a big communal lounge at your disposal, with a cosy corner to sit at the fireplace and large tables to read a book, or look at our leaflets.


Comfortable loungers

Relax on one of our comfortable loungers and listen to the laughter of the youngsters from Alvoco das Várzeas who enjoy the riverbeach. The purity of the Portuguese countryside takes you back in time. You don't have to bring pooltowels as we have them for hire.

Wellness & Sauna

In the spring of 2013 Quinta da Moenda extended her guest services with the addition of a sauna. Carved in to the base of mountain slate you will find our new wellness area where you can relax and warm your muscles after a hiking tour or just leave the day behind you. The wellness area is a self-contained area with direct access to the stimulating salt-water swimming pool and sun terrace. All overlooking the natural beauty of the river Alvoco as it winds it’s way. The tranquil atmosphere includes your own private bathroom with shower and of course a pitcher of fresh iced lemon water to replenish you. We have arranged the wellness area so that you have exclusive and private use of the sauna during your booked period. Therefore giving you plenty of time to unwind and spend time with your loved one or family and friends.


Family get-togethers

The intimacy of the estate is also ideal for family get-togethers and business meetings.
