Between Covilhã and Coimbra lies our riverside studio which comfortably fits two. Sheep wander around on the river beach. Have breakfast or dinner on your own terrace, dive in the big pool, relax with a glass of vinho verde and look at the stars!


Nestled at the foot of the Serra da Estrela mountain range, beside a crystal clear river, the studio has stunning views, peace, quiet and outstanding natural ambience throughout the location.

The studio, one of 5 apartments of Quinta da Moenda, is fully equipped, with a double bed, a kitchen and a big terrace. The bathroom with a shower is built into the side of a mountain rock making it a very attractive feature.
A spacious patio with bbq, a big salt water pool and a sauna are at your disposal. If you are looking for cosy and comfortable accommodation (log fires included!), relaxation, peace and quiet in a unique environment then don't think twice and book, you won't be disappointed!

The river Alvoco rises almost 2000 meters up in the Estrela range and its crystal clear waters cascade to the village of Alvoco das Varzeas, 300 meters above sea level, which boasts a picturesque Romanesque bridge.The unspoiled environment is great for all who enjoy fishing, rambling and resting.

You may also discover a host of other charming xist villages such as Vide, Loriga, Avô and Piódão, either by bike or by car. Coimbra, with its beautiful library and old university is a 1 hour drive away. The more adventurous will want to visit the Serra da Estrela mountain range with its plateau at nearly 2000 meters as well as lakes, sheer drops and breathtaking views.

The village is a 5 minute walk along the river and offers a bar and a small grocery shop. Supermarkets, banks and restaurants are all less than 20 min. away in Oliveira do Hospital.

Great place to visit! We had 5 great days at Josephine and Hans' place and they were great hosts. Very friendly and super easy to communicate with. No arrival/departure hassle at all and they were very helpful with both hiking/car trip recommendations and places-to-see suggestions. Overall a very nice place and great hosts. The place is located a bit away from most things and places, so expect to do some driving. 20 minutes or so to a big supermarket. Great scenery and beautiful landscape to drive through, so driving is not bad at all in this region. Definitely worth a visit.

My time staying and exploring around Josephine and Hans' quinta was the highlight of my trip. I was warmly welcomed by this gracious couple and enjoyed our conversations. It was lovely to sit in the patio near the salt water pool and chat with Josephine and Hans as well as a charming Dutch couple who were staying there too. How kind of them to speak English to make this American to feel welcomed! The studio where I stayed was comfortable and perfectly equipped. I only wish I had booked a longer stay. In addition to the pleasure of meeting and chatting Josephine and Hans, was the tranquility of the location. There is a lovely place to swim in the river a stone's throw away and you can follow the path below the village and between garden plots and grapevines across a medieval bridge and along a road that passes by an old watermill, a stream and pastures of grazing horses and cows. One day I took a drive along a suggested route and happened upon an irresistible natural swimming pool below a schist village where I spent most of the day and then later enjoyed a glass of wine sitting on a terrace watching the swallows soar above the steep valley. The only sounds were the church bells and the calls of the sparrows. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for charm, warmth and a peaceful experience.

The studio was really nice and cosy, and more importantly, very cool even the hot weather. The accomodation has a great swimming pool (salt water) to cool off in and Hans & Josephine were very friendly and accomodating to their guests. They even have set routes to visit Serra de Estrela, including a map with pictures and everything. The accomodation is in the middle of mountains with beautiful nature and a small waterfall just 50m from the studio. It's a great location to relax if you want, but there's also more than enough to do and see in this area of Portugal, Late check-out was not a problem for us, which was great. We really enjoyed our stay very much and would recommended highly to everyone.

Frances and I loved our stay at Quinta Da Moenda. Josephine was an impeccable hostess and provided us with everything we needed. The setting is bucolic and peaceful. We loved the sound of the river outside our window. Don't miss Piodão and Aldeia Das Dez. Josephine will provide the perfect route. Bring your own groceries as the village is remote.

Dear Bruce and Frances, Thank you very much for your visit and your lovely comment. I like the word 'bucolic', as it is so to the point! I found your curiosity and adventurous attitude appealing. i'd love to visit your place in Georgia one day. All best, Josephine

Tivemos uma excelente estadia aqui. A quinta é muito bonita, a piscina espectacular e o apartamento tinha tudo o que precisávamos. Os anfitriões são muito simpáticos e mostraram-se sempre disponíveis quando precisámos de lhes perguntar ou pedir alguma coisa. Para além disso, ao chegarmos, uma vez que estávamos sozinhos na quinta, pudemos ficar num apartamento melhor. A repetir, sem dúvida. Recomendo a quem precisa de uns tempos de natureza, silêncio e calma.

We had a truly wonderful break at Quinta da Moenda! The place was even nicer than described, the pictures don't do it justice especially the pool which absolutely great - no chlorine makes it really lovely to swim in. The studio has everything you need and because it is built into the rock it remains cool in the hot days. Josephine and Hans were perfect hosts providing us with all the advice we needed even helping with local restaurant reservation. A delightful place to stay and perfectly placed for exploring the region. I highly recommend it if you are considering a trip to Portugal, far more relaxing and beautiful than the busy coastal areas.

Dear Ester, We enjoyed your visit very much! We were glad that you could benefit from the fantastic wheather and that you liked the pool (and the river!) so much. I also enjoyed the fact that you and Jamie came with me to the yoga lesson in the yurt high in the mountains. We wish you all best for the future! Josephine and Hans

Josephine Brukerprofil

Ik ben in Amsterdam geboren en getogen, en emigreerde eind 2005 samen met mijn man Hans naar dit idyllische plekje in midden-Portugal.
Ik zwem graag (in ons eigen zwembad en in de rivier), ik yoga en ik schrijf verhalen en artikelen over ons bestaan als expat in Portugal en over de mensen om ons heen. Ik vind het erg leuk om gasten te vertellen over wandelingen in de omgeving, bezienswaardigheden en eigenaardigheden.
