"Quinta do Marvão is a little retreat in the heart of Serra de São Mamede, where nature and tranquillity meet in perfect harmony. The panoramic views give you a warm welcome for a stay full of activities, with only one rule: enjoy the silence."

Once Upon a Time...

With a unique location in the heart of Serra de São Mamede Natural Park and Ecological Reserve, it is in an enchanted valley that you will find the lovely Quinta do Marvão.

Just 3 kilometres away from the Quinta is the medieval town of Marvão, on its rocky escarpment at an altitude of over 800 m, which is of stunning beauty and has a historical legacy of incomparable value. It is from the 2 charming rooms and cottage that we send you this invitation to wake up to the sound of sheep walking on the Roman road, which leads to Marvão along signposted paths.

Enjoy a delicious breakfast in the romantic atmosphere of the granite arcades in the stillness of the Alentejo porch and prepare yourself for moments of relaxation or adventure.

In the town, you can walk the medieval streets and visit the castle; outside the city walls, you can explore old Roman roads, on foot or on horseback, and watch the birds in their natural habitat. Moments of pure contact with nature. All this without forgetting the excellent food and good Alentejo wines.

The owners, Irene and Jorge Van Krieken, both journalists by training and profession, chose to leave the hustle and bustle of Lisbon to continue their demanding professions in the countryside while, at the same time, making their dream of having a rural tourism establishment with ecological charm come true. It was in Marvão, in the heart of Serra de São Mamede, that they found this retreat which they now call “Quinta do Marvão”.
