Stayed for five nights mid March with my wife. The Quinto is a very special place with the hosts hospitality top of the list. Great accomodation, surroundings and a breakfast to keep you highly nourished for a tough touristy day in perhaps relatively nearby Lisbon. In fact it was a relief to get out of town each evening to the...

We spent 5 nights at this Quinta and were extremely impressed by the hospitality shown by the owners Tony and Penny. It was like a home away from home. From waking up in the morning fresh and ready for the day staring at the natural beauty that surrounded us. The room was extremely well kept and I loved the way...

We spent three nights at Quinta do Scoto during October half term. Tony and Penny could not have been more hospitable or helpful.

Great job on restoring the Quinta. Regarding location it's not set in a stunning area but relatively easy to get everywhere. Short walk to...

Quinta do Scoto is perfect for a relaxing vacation. The beautifully remodeled rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful. Our children loved being able to chase two dogs, three chickens and two horses on the property.

Quinta do Scoto is beautifully restored. The breakfast area has blue tiled landscape decoration that was original. The future is 150 years old! It is a bargain for such a beautiful and historical place. We loved our stay in Quinta do Scoto!

Tony and Penny work hard to provide a high quality stay for their guests, and it shows.
