Blue Mountain Views incorporates our home Quinta do Castanheiro, and two self- contained detached holiday homes, Casa Figo and Casa Flores. Situated on the edge of the Serra de Estrela National Park, with views of the mountains and valleys, both casas sleep two, and are the perfect base for couples or friends to explore Central Portugal, or simply relax and unwind.
“Our stay at Blue Mountain View was wonderful. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left Andy and Judy made us feel so welcome. Leaving us to our own devices, but on hand should we need help with recommendations etc. Put quite simply, the views from the house were stunning. The house is super comfy and so quiet. The pool was gorgeous after a hot day out exploring. I can thoroughly recommend Abelenda Bike Hire who will take you by car to Viseu and you cycle back 47Kms on a former railway line.. mostly downhill and with a wonderful hidden river beach! We also travelled to Manteigas and saw a wonderful Golden Eagle! So, if you are looking to get away from it all in peace and nature but only ten mins from town, this is the place to do it... Ps Chessy the dog is a delight! Simon and Anna London”
A one bedroom house with kitchen, living & dining room on the ground floor, and bedroom and shower room on the first floor. The house is fully equipped for self-catering, with heating and hot-water provided by solar and wood-burner from our house. Onsite we have a large saltwater swimming pool which is shared with all three cottages. The pool is 15 m x 6 m, and has a large surrounding patio where you can enjoy the sun from dawn to dusk. Just lie back and soak-up the sun.
“We had a lovely stay at Orange Olives quinta! Rob and Juliet were amazingly nice hosts that always made us feel comfortable. We enjoyed talking to them about the quinta and eating the biological fruit and vegetables. Cinza and Tiger (the quinta's cat and dog) were also a delightful company, coming to say hi when we were in the patio enjoying our meals with a countryside view. The pool area is perfect to relax and read, and the pool itself is great! It's a salt water pool which means there is no chlorine. The house itself has a nice decoration and everything you need to cook and feel comfortable. Also, the GPS coordinates and Google Maps links Rob provided to get to the quinta, work perfectly. All in all, we really recomend the Orange Olives quinta and we plan to return soon!”

Everything of this you can find just in front of Seia in a beatyfull and calm landscape. Seia is 5 minutes by car and the door to the Serra Estrella. But this is not all we were welcomed by Paulo with frech bred and excellent cheese and wine from the region, cold drinks in the fridge and the second day we got a superbere fresh salads and fruits. We will definitely come back”
