Ecopista do Dão, perto da Quinta da Abelenda



Quinta da Abelenda, Portugal


Very well located at just 200 meters from the river Dão, between Coimbra and Viseu, two lovely cottages offer peace and quiet in a beautiful setting, with magnificent views over the valley.

Although the Quinta is quiet, it is by no means isolated. It has excellent connections with Lisbon, Oporto and Spain and it is well located for visiting some of the most interesting places of Central Portugal, such as the magnificent mountains of the Serra da Estrela and the Serra do Caramulo, the national park of Bussaco, the old university city of Coimbra and the city of Viseu. The vine-yards of the famous Dão wine are nearby.

The 4 hectare Quinta da Abelenda borders the beautiful Ecopista do Dão, a 49 km biking and hiking path that leads all the way to the city of Viseu, a former railway following the Dão river for miles. This river is very wide near Quinta da Abelenda, because it is part of the artificial Lake of Aguieira.

We offer guided horseback riding tours and we rent bicycles and canoes.
