Quinta Antes o Vento is very child-friendly

What can you do here?

That depends on the things you like and your age. We have many animals at our Quinta and you might like to play with Bo, our dog. She is fond of balls and always waits for people to throw the ball for her. You can also help to feed the chickens, the ducks, the cat (Sia) and Chamoor, the mule. You can collect the eggs from the henhouse and Chamoor loves to be brushed. Of course we do that every day, but if you want to help, you are welcome to join us. Or a walk with Chamoor; that´s also possible of course. Take a look: A walk with Chamoor

Swimming-pool and games

We have a small swimming-pool for the little ones. It is fenced in. We also have many games. Of course it never rains in summer, but sometimes it can be very nice to play a game whilst sitting out of the sun on the terrace.

We made a (short) walk with the help of photographs. We'll explain what to do when you are here. In former days there were lots of dinosaurs here in this area and it is still possible to see their footprints.

Beaches, sailing and surfing

The Costa de Prata, the region where we live, is one big beach. The nicest beaches, suitable for children and swimming, are Salir do Porto, where you'll find the highest dunes, São Martinho do Porto, Nazaré and Foz do Arelho. In Foz do Arelho you have the beach along the Lagoa (lake) and along the sea. In the Lagoa it is safe to swim and play in the water. If you would like to learn how to sail or surf you have to be here in Foz. There is a nice sailing-school with a good atmosphere and not too expensive.


If our plunge-pool is too small and the sea is too rough, there is also a possibility to go to one of the big swimming-pools. In Nazaré there is a big one called Norpark.
Parque dos Monges is a great park nearby, where you can do all kinds of activities, amogst others canoing, archery and climbing. It is an adventure park with many animals.

History of Portugal

Portugal is an old country and here too we had many wars. One of the wars against the Spaniards was here in the neighborhood. The Battle of Aljubarotto. Now they have built a museum on the exact spot where the war was fought and won by the Portuguese people. In the museum they show and tell you the story of the battle and allthough wars are not good things, this is history and really interesting and good to see.

Question? Just ask!
