Recently we have taken over the management of Quinta da Encavalada in Senhor das Almas (6 km from Covas) where the Dutch administrators couple Sandra Derksen and Jan Willem Lenselink receive the guests on behalf of our company Retiro Turismo Rural Lda. On this beautiful, authentic quinta of 3.5 hectares are two holiday villas and a communal pool available for rental throughout the year.

Casa Agave is a very attractively furnished detached villa that was restored in 2013 with a lot of care and attention to the original granite walls. From the veranda of the villa you have a magnificent view over the terrain and in the distance the mountain ridge Caramulo. This holiday villa has three bedrooms with a total of 5 fixed beds.  Casa Agave is situated on Quinta da Encavalada; more info on this quinta, photos and prices can be found on
