Quinta Prio Mendes

This one-hectare, private, off-grid farm nestling in the mountains of Central Portugal is an indigenous nature reserve whose valleys make up the Rio Ceira. Boasting 350m of prime riverside location, Quinta Prio Mendez makes for the perfect getaway.

Quinta Prio Mendes is available for hire on a daily/weekly basis to groups up to a maximum of 40 people.

We are self sustaining with electricity and water and are constantly improving and updating the farm.

Please note: there is a strict NO FIRES policy in these mountains.

There are four private river beaches, all part of the main Rio Ciera. Swim in the cool waters

or simply dip your feet and let the fish nibble at your toes. There is a natural spa bath on the

second river beach, with pretty rock formations hanging over it.

All the river beaches are unique and each one has a different ambiance.



This natural half-acre area is where the bees feed and the 'little guys' find refuge. Walk freely through this sensitive area via the created pathways.


The refreshment area under the chestnut tree is fitted with a mini kitchen that includes a

fridge, freezer, a three-ring gas hob and an oven. There is 240V electricity for charging

laptops and phones and blending fruit juices.

This area offers ample shade from the summer sun.

The first aid box is situated here.



This flat half-acre area can be used for any activity and there is 240V electricity and a water

point. It's a good spot for erecting a marquee or bell tents for group use. Situated 30meters

away from the toilets and showers, it also offers plenty of shade next to the river.


We take our responsibilities to the environment very seriously and have installed a 5000ltr

septic tank beneath ground level which the council empties periodically.

There are:

Two flush toilets

Hot and cold shower
Hand basin and mirror
