Quinta Laranja - ´Casa da Varanda`Quinta Laranja is a previous Portuguese winery now transformed to a family-friendly holiday accommodation. It offers ten attractive accommodation options. Our accommodations are situated on a spacious terrain that offers various facilities for both parents and kids, as well as a lovely swimming pool.
The Quinta is centrally located and offers magnificent views over the hills of Estremadura.
Collection of cottages Quinta Laranja is situated on a large fenced property of about 6500 m2 with all kinds of fruit trees. Because of this our accommodations and facilities got plenty of space. Surrounded by nature and with a beautiful view over the valley and the vineyards you will find peace and quiet to read a book and plenty of space for the kids to play and run. Cantina and washing machine
Near the pool and playground you´ll find our Cantina, a cozy half open common space with outdoor kitchen. Besides it being a nice meeting point for our guests to have drinks and such there also is a nice play corner for the kids, a TV, laundry machine for common use and quite a collection of books, magazines and board games. In the common space you will also find our information board with all kinds of local tips like festivities, flea markets and fado nights. There also are all kinds of games, sports and beach necessities available for your use.
Located in the Cantina you will also find the common kitchen with a sink, barbeque and Portuguese wood heated stone oven. The barbeque can be used by everybody; the stone oven is used during special stone oven nights, on which we prepare delicious fresh pizza’s or other dishes for our guests.
A large part of our property has been turned into a sheep pasture. Our 4 sheep, Sophie, Britney, Luna & Britney, graze contently and have all the space to run around. Often though, they prefer a quiet spot to rest, which makes it easy for the kids to pet them. Please note that our sheep are fully monitored by a vet and the Portuguese Ministry of Agriculture and therefore poses all required vaccinations. So no need to fear about diseases passing over to your children.
Holiday park with Wi-Fi
Most parts of our property are covered by our two Wi-Fi networks. Inside the accommodations, outside and in the common space you can enjoy our free Wi-Fi using your own devices.
Facilities for kids
Collection of cottages Quinta Laranja also offers many other fun things especially for the kids (and parents of course!). They can have fun in the swimming pool (with separate kiddie pool), on our football pitch, in the Indian village, in the playground or on the petanque course (jeu-des-boules). And let’s not forget our trampoline! We have also set out several walks and treasure hunts. Read more about kids facilities.
We are Loes and Jeroen van Elswijk, Dutch owners of small scale Holiday Park Quinta Laranja in Portugal. Ever since we bought our former winery in Portugal we still enjoy this wonderful spot! The first ten years after our emigration, we lived at the terrain of Quinta Laranja itself, in the holiday home that´s now called Casa da Varanda. Together with our daughters Leila Blue (2006), Goa (Portugal, 2009) and of course our cat Nina and our sheep, we had a great time there. But small girls grow up so fast! In Portugal, children already go to a sort of high school at the age of ten. That school wasn´t around the corner and neither were swimming lessons and gymnastics. Therefore in 2016 we moved to a nice green neighbourhood of the town of Caldas da Rainha, close to the park. Just a 15 minute drive from Quinta Laranja and never a traffic jam!
The Silver Coast of Estremadura is a unique piece of Portugal and the best place to be for a varied (family) holiday. Beautiful (child-friendly) beaches, wonderful mountains and world famous UNESCO cultural highlights. Walking, surfing and many other activities in a splendid nature and wonderful climate. Vibrant Lisbon or small pictoresk villages where time seems to have stood still. Bustling regional markets or a terrace in the sun. Whether you are staying for one, two or three weeks or returning to us for a new holiday (as many guests do!), there is always plenty to see and do for both kids as well as adults. In our common area you´ll find our own extensive information on all these trips and things to do (updatet every year and sometimes even referred to as the `Lonely Planet´ by our guests!).
