Holiday Home Casa Agave (Encavalada)

Holiday home Casa Agave is situated on Quinta da Encavalada, our second – even smaller – location. It is situated six kilometers away on the edge of the village Senhor das Almas near Oliveira do Hospital. This beautiful secluded authentic Portuguese stately farmhouse on 3.5 hectares has two beautiful granite holiday homes and a communal pool available for breaks throughout the year. Guests are received by the Dutch caretakers couple Sandra Derksen and Jan Willem Lenselink.

Holiday home Casa Agave is a detached house, built on two levels in the traditional Portuguese style with authentic granite walls. The house is full of character, both inside and out and is attractively decorated. Consequently the views looking over the terrain and the Dão valley are superb. This holiday home has three bedrooms with a total of 5 fixed beds.  Holiday home Casa Agave is situated on Quinta da Encavalada; more info on this quinta and photos can be found on
