Casa Pintor is a bright open self-catering apartment with big windows looking out over Eco-Quinta Moinhos do Dão's vegetable garden (with the Dão river behind it) and terraces with grape vines and olive trees. The quinta is beautifully situated on the banks of the Dão river and guests have access to the river side beach and many nature trails in the direct surroundings. A perfect place for nature lovers and a good location for exploring the interior of Portugal.
Casa Pintor is a large open space on the first floor of what we call 'the River house'. It has everything for an independent stay: a kitchen, dining table, toilet, sleeping loft, a couch and a wood burning heater. The shower is on the ground floor of the same building.
As a guest at our quinta you have full access to our terrain. You can explore the vegetable garden, wild island in the middle of the Dão river, visit the old mill and all other areas of our terrain.
We or our volunteers are around most of the time to ask questions and provide information about things to do in the area.
Our quinta is located off the beaten track and is only accessible with regular cars and small vans if you take it easy on the dirt road down into the valley. We are off the grid and generate our own electricity with water from the river and solar panels. Our accommodations have no outlets but we do have a charging station by our kitchen for small electronic devices. We usually have a crew working with us, run an artist in residency and have 4 guest spaces on our terrain so you will meet other people during your stay. 2 nights a week we cook for our guests and sit down together to enjoy the produce from our ecological garden and other regional foods. We also sell fresh produce from our garden to guest if the quantities allow us. Moinhos do Dão is a rustic place where natural- and cultural heritage blend into each other and people get to enjoy a simple life surrounded by nature.
We hold respectful behavior towards others and nature very high.
We ask of our guests to respect quiet hours between 10pm and 9am.
We allow pets if they are socialized, can be around other dogs and cats and are under voice command. We hold the right to asses a pets behavior and ask the owner to keep the pet on a leash if we feel there is a risk.
We only allow smoking outside and cigarette buds MUST end up in the trash.
