The “Quinta do Covanco” is a rural estate boasting several centuries of history. Situated in the historic municipality of Alenquer in the west region- land of vineyards and sea-, only 30 Km from Lisbon and characterized by a rustic architectural style deriving from the farming activities pioneered here in the past – most notably the growing of wines. The farm is able to offer you the pleasure of comfortable accommodation, the tranquil surrounding countryside and a relaxed family atmosphere where you will have the chance to experience tasty home-cooked meals. The farm features 6 double rooms (each with en-suite bathroom, telephone, heating and satellite TV), a lounge with open fireplace, a piano and bar and a games room. A number of activities are on hand; such as hiking, trips to the near-by Alenquer, a visit to Montejunto Mountain and outings around the local municipality to see historical monuments, to know windmills route, to taste some of best wines of the country in the Wine and Vineyards route. There are places worthy of a visit like the Óbidos Village, Mafra, Caldas da Rainha, Sintra and of course Lisbon. Golf players have an excellent opportunity to practice it in the West, like Golden Eagle at Rio Maior. You can also appreciate the Tejo River, go to the several beaches –Peniche, Baleal, Consolação, Santa Cruz- along the west coast or to the Berlengas Islands – a Natural Maritime Reserve of rare beauty.
