Quinta das Canas is a cottage, owned by our friendly English neighbour Tim who is happy to rent out his home when he is not in Portugal.

Quinta das Canas is situated close (400 metres) to our restaurant at Vinha Da Manta. As one of our guests, this means that the use of all the facilities of Vinha Da Manta are in easy reach. You can swim at our biological swimming pool and / or have a nice lunch and a drink at our pool bar.
You can also come up and enjoy a wonderful dinner from your host Menno, and you can, of course, join us for a ride on horseback. Every morning there is breakfast at the restaurant which is included in the price.

Quinta das Canas is not always available because Tim obviously wants to enjoy it for himself and his family from time to time. But renting is possible throughout the year according to availability which you can check on our website www.damantalodges.com or mail us at info@damanta.nl

Quinta das Canas is situated just 400 meters downhill from our Quinta and its terrace and nine acres of land offer a glorious view of the Mondego Valley stretching down to the river and rising to mountains on the other side.
The house, which was originally a traditional lagar and used as a wine press, is easily accessed from a paved countryroad with ample parkingspace. Built from original large granite stones, it has since been renovated in a minimalist style with Pedra Vista walls, cosy furniture and Portuguese tiles, and with modern appliances and comforts. The renovation has been done in 2015/2016 and is now a very modern house suitable for 4-6 persons. It has one double bedroom, another bedroom with two single beds and a third bedroom (1 bed) with own bathroom. In addition there is a sofa-bed in the sitting room. In highseason the price is 770 euro per week and in low season it is 630 per week including breakfast.

The modern bathroom is situated between the two bedrooms and has a wash basin, a shower and a toilet. The open plan living room and kitchen/dining room are divided by steps leading to a mezzanine floor with high ceilings giving it a spacious feel. There are two outside terraces with a pergola offering shade and a spectacular view over the olive groves. One has seats, table and a second (outdoor) kitchen, the other which is even bigger has a double bed for lounging and stargazing at night.

The large, modern, double-faced woodfire, insulated walls and double-glazed windows ensure coolness throughout the summer and a warm cozyness during winter time. This house is now very well renovated and has all modern amenities.

Two terraces down, reachable by a small path/stairs is a very nice secluded plungepool of 4x4 metrers and 1 m deep. Ultimate relaxation guaranteed for reading a book and once in a while take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear water.
