Holiday home Casa Palmeira (Encavalada)

Holiday home Casa Palmeira 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 Palmeira is a very attractively furnished detached spacious house that was restored in 2013 with a lot of care and attention to the original granite walls. From the veranda and the balcony of the villa you have a magnificent view over the terrain and in the distance the mountain ridge Caramulo. This holiday villa has two spacious bedrooms with a total of 5 fixed beds. Holiday home Casa Palmeira  is situated on Quinta da Encavalada; more info on this quinta and photos can be found on

For communal meals the shared patio is an ideal place.
