Welcome to Quinta da Foz

I realise we are going through complicated times and while we wait for exciting news this is the time to have a sincere and frank conversation.

Besides its 10 hectares in nature, Quinta da Foz includes a residual touristic offer exclusively composed of just 4 rooms and 2 houses. But we are still committed. That is why we have adjusted our accommodation and hosting techniques.

In line with Portuguese Directorate-General for Health and Consumers’ (DGS – Direção Geral de Saúde) recommendations, we have established an internal Contingency Plan. We have created safety protocols and hygiene plans (which we follow daily) that match strict methods related to the work and cleaning procedures of our common areas, our rooms, and our Houses of the Quinta. We are Clean & Safe, a commitment to Portugal Tourism, I.P. we wish to honour.

We are also committed to Biosphere’s sustainable tourism international program. That is why we do not have AC, we minimised our paper materials, and all our accommodation spaces include direct access to the outside, whether to the nature that surrounds our Quinta or to a quiet street.

We are open to tailoring and readapting new procedures or to adjusting (and introducing new…) working practices. Our aim is to protect the health of our Guests, our team, and our community at Foz do Arelho, to ensure their happiness, and to provide them with peace and serenity!
