    Beschreibung

    We own a beautiful private Quinta on the side of a mountain with amazing views of the Rio Alva and Serra da Estrella mountains.

    I am a retired scientist, who did Diabetes research for 25 years. I also am a musician and play and record music. My band tours internationally as well. My wife is also retired. We are native English speakers but I (Ricardo) also speak Danish and some Portuguese. We love music, good food (we are both excellent cooks- Indian, New Mexican, Thai, etc.), and nice people. We are non-smokers and have two small dogs. We are not on the internet constantly and do not have smartphones so it might be a day or two for replies..

    We are only 10mins by car from the main town and a 20min walk up the hill to Lidl. There is a lot of great hiking paths here and nature in the area, despite the recent fires which burned down most of the forests in the area. There is a main bus station in town (Oliveira do Hospital) that can take you to the other local towns (Seia, Tábua) or even Lisboa, Coimbra, and Porto.
