About this venue


Have you ever dreamt of an intimate wedding in the middle of the woods? If your answer is yes, you might want to stay longer to learn more about this country estate for weddings near Lisbon.

It’s a place dedicated to relaxation, reconnecting with nature, and reminiscing the past with your loved ones. The 11-hectare property is more than just a wedding venue, but a magical location that transports you away from the ordinariness of your everyday life into a secret place where time stands still.

Four centuries of history, wide open spaces that abound in nature, and laid-back wedding spots await you in this Portuguese Quinta. Sit back as we explain how weddings unfold here.


If you envision an outdoor wedding amidst refreshing nature, hold the ceremony in the middle of the woods, where wooden pews can be set up for your guests. Elopements for two can also work here and are even more beautiful, with the couple and their celebrant having a private, heartfelt ceremony with no guests in attendance.

Aside from the woods, there are many other outdoor spaces in the estate that can serve as your ceremony spot with a bright and airy ambiance. You can even tie the knot on a narrow road framed by tall trees for an enchanting exchange of vows.

Aside from the green setting outdoors, you can have an indoor ceremony under the thatched roof of a barn-style wedding area that evokes a purely rustic ambiance. This ceremony spot is perfect for country weddings in Portugal.

If you want a mix of indoor and outdoor areas where you can see the abounding nature around the estate while being protected from the rain, you can get married at the roofed ceremony area without walls in the midst of the woods.

Your indoor options include the restaurant with traditional Portuguese interiors or one of its rustic function rooms. Every area has a very spacious, bright, and sophisticated ambiance to ensure a lively celebration despite its indoor location.


We recommend the rustic banquet hall for your wedding reception with a large fireplace, luxury chandeliers, and a timeless piano. It’s a special dinner area with a couple of buffet rooms and a bar where you and your guests can have a lovely celebration. This indoor space can accommodate more than 60 guests.

Alternatively, you can have a bright and airy reception amidst the vast green space outside, with Portuguese pavement and trees framing the area. The spacious banquet hall is also available for your wedding dinner.

The venue prides itself on the traditional and homemade dishes from the old recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation. Their traditional cuisine is infused with modern flavors to create a perfect gastronomic experience for you and your guests.


Look no further for a place for your honeymoon or family vacation after your wedding day. This Portuguese country estate provides accommodation for you and your guests so you can enjoy the venue’s tranquility a little longer.

Its 29 spacious rooms are perfect for your small group where you can have a quiet escape at the heart of the Portuguese countryside. Lie down on the sofa, breathe freshness in, and have meaningful conversations while dining outdoors with your loved ones.

Every night will be one of pure relaxation inside the beautifully decorated themed rooms, and each morning is a chance to create lasting memories in an unforgettable place in Portugal.
