Accommodations

Three authentic Quintas, a cosy Hotel in the village of Gois and two city Hotels in Coimbra

Pinhal kamerFor the cycling and walking holidays we work together with Portuguese accommodations in the centre of Portugal and the university city of Coimbra.


Quinta 2Except Quinta no Pinhal, our own accomodation, we cooperate with Quintal Alem do Ribeiro and Quinta São Lourenço. Both authentic well kept Portuguese rural tourism accomodations which are members of the organisation Turismo Rural.


For our walking tour we also work with The Hotel Casa Santo Antonio close to the centre of the beloved village of Gois. This village has a riverbeach with bar and restaurants at the riverside. The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy and the river invites you to take a refreshing bath. Gois is an excellent location  to start various walking tours and other activities as f.i. canyoning and rappel and slide.

COIMBRA aquaductIn the ancient university city of Coimbra, situated at the borderof the Mondego river, we choose for the historial Hotel Astoria and the more modern Hotel Riversuites at the south side of the Mondego river.


The rich culture, including the Fado music, make that we recommend booking some extra days here after your cycling or walking holiday.

Environment

In this region, called the Pinhal Interior, because of the great number of pine trees, also exist a lot of olive orchards, eucalyptus and citrus trees but also cork oaks and of course the big amount of "vinhas" vineyards. In spring the mimosa with it´s typical yellow sweet smelling flowers decorates this region. Often you will meet the peasant cart with the dunkey. A lot of the portugese people here live of agriculture. In the summer there are a lot of markets and festivals with music and dancing to honour the saint.
