Vumba’s estate has a unique set of conditions which offer our guests the quiet enjoyment of a true rural experience. The old home of Vumba’s foreman is now a very comfortable country house, ideal for a family or a group of friends, with 3 good bedrooms, a big living room with a cozy fireplace, a nice and well equipped kitchen and a bathroom, with a beautiful view of the garden. The house has an inviting patio ideal for relaxing after a walk in the woods.

The space
Vumba's property is divided into 3 cozy guesthouses (The Alambique,The House of the Lizard, The Owl's Nest) and 2 stylish suites (The Bue Maria and The Gorongoza). All guesthouses have access to a lounge with dinning room and kitchen and a large swimming pool surrounded by a lush garden. The bathing season opens on May 15th and closes on September 30th.
The estate has several roads and trails as well as five idyllic ponds. Isolated from the outside world, here you will find the ideal combination of natural resources to let you enjoy nature and to experience a truly rural lifestyle.

Vumba is a small, family owned company, engaged in maintaining traditions and providing a highly professional and personalized service. We produce the organic cheese "Quinta do Carapinhal" following ancient traditions and provide quality accomodation in a rural environment.
Vumba’s logo is a leaf of an oak, a deciduous tree with a long gestation period, that always did well in this region. The oak symbolizes our respect for tradition and continuity as well as renewal.
In fact, Vumba is highly influenced by our grandparents’ memory, by their love for this land and by all the great things they’ve done. We make our best to respect and honor this memory in everything we do.

Guest access
Following the indications of the DGS, Vumba made some changes to its common spaces;
- The Sala da Adega of our Agroturism is a common area including a living room (with TV) and kitchen; taking into account the aforementioned recommendations, the kitchen will be used exclusively by guests of Suite Gorongosa, maintaining the room as a common space for all guests (maximum of 5 persons). This room is divided from the kitchen through a folding screen.
- Our swimming pool, located in the woods next to the houses, with plenty of space around it, is a common area and has areas defined for guests according to the DGS spacing rules.

Other things to note
Vumba's Agrotourism are of limited accessibility and, are therefore, not accessible to wheelchairs
