Located just over one hour drive from Lisbon and a few minutes from Fatima Sanctuary, one of the most centres of pilgrimage in the world, is the Quinta da Alcaidaria-Mor. If you are looking for a genuine warmth of welcome and a Quinta brimming with charm and history, the Quinta da Alcaidaria-Mor certainly fills the bill. Amazingly, the home has been the same for over 300 years. The original owner was the king`s personal physician, and, as thanks of his years of loyal service, the king gave him the property and also a noble title. There are six guestrooms, all large and prettly decorated in a fresh, uncluttered style, with beautiful antique beds and a few fine pieces of furniture. Nothing is overdone or dark and heavy. The rooms have an appealing English-country look with shuttered windows accended by sheer with curtains, and pretty rose-patterned fabric repeated on the bedspreads, drapes, and upholstered chairs. As an addes bonus for guests, there is a swimming pool in the garden. Walks are also possible in the farm. There is also an apartment with room, bathroom, sitting-room and kitchenette.
