Quinta da Foz
Largo do Arraial
2500-457 Foz do Arelho
Quinta da Foz is located in the Western region of Portugal, 1 minute away from Foz do Arelho beach, a 2-minutes’ drive from Óbidos lagoon, a 10-minutes’ drive from Caldas da Rainha and the old medieval town of Óbidos and half an hour (by car) from the Nazaré and Peniche beaches.
In 1568, António Vaz Bernardes, Knight of the Portuguese royal house and great-grandfather of the current owners, bought the Quinta da Foz. A few years later, King Filipe I of Portugal established the farm’s “Morgadio” (also called Quinta de Nossa Senhora de Guadalupe) that some centuries later became known as Foz do Arelho, and the town grew around Quinta da Foz.
Nowadays, guests of Quinta da Foz can stroll through the farm areas and discover the hives, the horses, the aromatic herbs gardens, the courtyards and the secular gardens.
The family house and its chapel, where the Paiva Magalhães family still lives, can be visited in a guided tour promoted by the hosts, who share stories from de past and from the historical legacy of their house.
