Vinha da Manta overlooks a great part of the upper Mondego valley. From almost every spot of our 25 acres, you have a magnificent view over the valley. Actually, you get the sensation that you are “floating above the valley” which feels royal at times. The estate is situated at the end of the valley and that means the use of terraces with many different fruit trees, shrubs and animals. Olive, almond, peach, cherry and fig trees are largely present and all for the picking when in season. Our drinking- and irrigation water come from our own springs.

Vinha Da Manta offers 9 luxury canvas lodges, a private farmhouse and a cosy gardenhouse, each on its own terrace with full privacy. For us, this is the ideal number of accommodation so as to offer our guests privacy and at the same time guarding the intimate atmosphere of the property. Moreover, we like to have personal contact with our guests. All lodges have their own place with extreme privacy.
We have a beautiful fully biologically purified pool. It is a wonderful place to relax, swim, read a book and meet others.

We arrange for our guests a dinner every other day (monday. wednesday, friday and saturday), whoever wants to participate can simply join. At the bar, both at the pool and at the house, snacks or lunches may be purchased.

Jacqueline has 4 horses and for reasonably experienced riders it is possible to go on trips into the mountain, for kids we do kiddy rides on the property.

We also have a small shop with produce from the garden (vegetables, fruit, herbs) and we offer local and homemade products (jams, marmelades, moonshine, dried or otherwise preserved goods).
