Garden, varanda and pool

Finally, the outdoor area, more than just a garden, it is an extension of the Natural Park itself. Here you can appreciate the indigenous vegetation of pine, olive and citrus tress, among which were recently planted rows of lavender and vineyard of Castelão variety. Moreover, it is also possible to enjoy many other plant species that grow in the region, including aloes, among which stand outs Aloe arborescens and Aloe conifer.

Although it is not possible to keep and quantify the fauna within the limits of Quinta de Santo António it is highly guaranteed the encounter with rabbits, owls, lizards, raptors, butterflies and fireflies that both during day and nigh time inhabit the region. After all you are in the middle of a Natural Park…

Just beside the kitchen and the terrace is a fresh, naturally shaded area with a large ancient stone table that once stood in a convent in Leiria. This area near to the barbeque is the perfect place for your summer meals.

The best is kept for last: A step away from home, a the pool fed by an ancient fountain of the XVIIIth century, with water-heating. It is definitely the ultimate argument to convince you that if you are in need of a vacation, and that this is probably the best place in Portugal to do so.
