The owner is really very nice and helpful. The house is located in a very nice and quiet environment with a beautiful view on the mountains. The house has all comfort and has a beautiful swimming poolk and garden. The mountains have not a lot of good walking possibilities so it is climbing just through the bushes to reach the top. You can also walk on jeep roads but the paths are not well indicated. The owner however sells a detailed map... Walking to a nearby small shop takes only 15 minutes. Also you have the river at 5 minutes walk to take a natural bath. A recommendation for people that like a very quiet environment with beautifull scenery...

The house is very cosy and comfortable, situated in beautiful area. Hosts are really nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't good, so we didn't have the chance to use the pool. Nevertheless, we enjoyed staying in this special place, preparing our own meals made of local products and tasting very good local wine.

We only stayed for one night in this house. The location is amazing. The house is very big (three bedrooms with a double bed in each), two toilets, a kitchen, a big living room (downstairs). There is definitely no noise (and no Internet). The owner welcomed us with a cup of home made liquor which was really nice. He lent his internet key for me to use (but it's working very slowly-if you come here, it's to cut yourself from everything) ! The only BUT that we have is that it was not precised on the ad that the way to get there is VERY tricky. I would not recommend it for a normal car. If you have a 4 wheeled (4x4) or SUVs that's fine. Otherwise, you may not want to leave the house of the whole stay. You have to get over a very very steep rise and then the road is no more paved and you have to go though quite steep descent too. I was quite shaky when getting out of the car. The liquor was welcomed !

Dear Anne-Laure, thanks for your comments, we are grateful for your presence and pleased you enjoyed our conditions. Everything we do is to make your stay an unforgettable experience. We do not have wi-fi but can access the internet with any mobile device through wireless networks. The road to Quinta do Circo is well signposted, in relation to access must keep in mind that we are located on the highest and beautiful mountain of Portugal so are mountain paths, you do not need an SUV or four wheel drive vehicle, we have a normal vehicle and lived here all our lives. Our clients can and should go out, there are plenty of places to perform activities nearby. The nearest village is just 500 meters away and can move-walk along the beautiful river that surrounds us. We are a rural tourism property and we are geared towards nature lovers.

Great to stay and easy to find as signage through the small nearby village. Lovely hosts who shared a drink with us before we settled in. Amazing views from the side of a mountain.

Minha família e eu tivemos uma estadia fantástica. A casa é linda como nas fotos e tudo funciona na perfeição. Foi fácil encontrar a localização com a ajuda do gps e as coordenadas dos anfitriões que sempre estiveram disponíveis para ajudar em qualquer instante inclusive receberam-nos super tarde da noite impecavelmente. Tenho pena de não termos podido ficar por mais tempo. Voltarei com certeza num futuro próximo!

A Quinta do Circo é um daqueles lugares que vale a pena conhecer e ficar por uns dias. O lugar é único e está situado em uma vila que não está na rota turística, o que a torna ainda mais interessante e faz com que, quem fique na Quinta, sinta-se verdadeiramente inserido em suas belas paisagens! As acomodações são aconchegantes e os anfitriões muito simpáticos!
