Living rooms & terraces

Guests are spoilt for choice when choosing a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the Quinta and its grounds.

The upper terrace provides a favourite spot to relax and enjoy a glass of wine whilst admiring the sunset and magnificent views of the valley of Colares and the sea beyond.

A wide terrace accessed from rooms on the ground floor, provides a large sitting and dining area overlooking the gardens, partly shaded by a large jacaranda tree, keeping guests cool in the summer.

What was once a monks’ refectory is now an attractive living room with a unique high vaulted ceiling, large enough for big gatherings.  The room stays cool in summer and heated in winter by a wide open fireplace which was originally the bread-oven to the monastery.

On the first floor, an elegant second sitting room with sofas and French windows leading to the upper terrace, is the perfect place to unwind.  The library is stocked with a selection of books for guests and a desk for anyone in the group needing a quiet location to study or work.
