Quinta da Abelenda, between Coimbra and Viseu in central Portugal

Casa da Abelenda

Peace and quiet in a beautiful setting.

Situated in a fantastic location between Coimbra and Viseu and just 200 meters from the River Dão and the Ecopista do Dão bike path, Quinta da Abelenda offers peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, with magnificent views over the valley.
While the Quinta is quiet, it is by no means isolated, with excellent connections to Lisbon, Porto and Spain and easy access to some of Central Portugal’s most interesting sights.
Aside from the owners’ house, there is only one small holiday home on the 7-hectare Quinta, suitable for 2 adults and a maximum of 3 children.

Cycling on the Ecopista do Dão

"The most beautiful bicycle path in Portugal"

Quinta da Abelenda lies adjacent to the beautiful Ecopista do Dão, a 49 km cycling and walking path connecting Santa Comba Dão and Viseu and built along the route of a former railroad line, following the river Dão for miles and very easy to cycle.
Abelenda Bike Rental, situated 200 meters from Casa da Abelenda, offers a wide range of bicycles for rent.

Two spectacular walks nearby

Both walks start at points situated just 20 minutes away by car. The Vale de Gaios walk takes walkers through the ‘Valley of the Jays’, following a small river that features numerous beautiful wooden bridges along its course.
The Waterfall Walk also follows the course of a small river, with many small waterfalls along the way. At its end lies a beautiful and much larger waterfall of around 27 metres.
During the summer months, several swimming spots offer the chance to swim in the clean water of these rivers.
