Avó Quitas Country House

More than a simple house in the countryside…

The History of the house

This house is very special, for the whole family. It was our great-grandmother’s house. She was known for being a very good person and mother. So even today when passing the entrance gate we can feel the cosinesswe need so much these days.

Description of the house

This house is ideal to receive families or groups of friends. It is a quiet place in a country setting. It is cosy and functional, it has everything that is needed. The fireplaces are a delight on winter nights, they warm our soul. The terraces are great for enjoying the sun all year long. Children can play in the yard, run free, be in the pool, while parents rest in the living room or on the terraces while watching them.


The house is located in Póvoa de Santo António, Canas de Senhorim, in the municipality of Nelas.

Although we are in the so called inland, we can say that we have excellent road and rail access. The roads are good, you can either spend the days on the property and surrounding area, or you can visit a big city and return to the quiet with all ease.
