Quinta dos Machados

A haven of rest, comfort and leisure

OUR STORY

It is in this place, just a few kilometers from Lisbon, where you will feel reunited with nature and with the comfort of traditions. Quinta dos Machados is, for many, a haven with over 11 hectares and 4 centuries of history, but prepared to meet modern day needs. Here everything is done with love, with the inspiration of nature and the comfort that invites you to relax.

Apart from a historic, charming and all-inclusive accommodation, we have a relaxing spa, restaurant, an irresistible, charming space for events, a sensory footpath as well as numerous green places.

  • AT QUINTA DOS MACHADOS, RELAXING IS A PRIORITY

    It’s time to close your eyes and let us take care of you

  • A SENSORY TRAVEL EXPERIENCE

    Enjoy walks and picnics in our woods, venture out along the mountain bike trails or disconnect entirely with a spa treatment

  • NATURE | LOVE | RELAX

    Simplicity will set the pace of your days

    The freshness of the products we choose and the simple way in which we make our local delicacies, makes us remember old recipes, from our mothers, grandmothers and aunts

Eco Certifications

Just as we admire each of our hosts for their singularity, we appreciate that their sustainability journeys are also unique. Because of this, we do not require our hosts to have an eco certification or two under their belt, we simply guide them on improving their sustainable business practices one imperfect – but positive – step at a time. If a host has eco certifications they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

NGOs & Local Impact Projects Supported

Each of our hosts strive to have a positive impact on their local communities. Some of our hosts already have established connections with local partners to enrich the lives and wellbeing of their communities, others are in the process of creating these long term relationships. If a host has local NGO connections they will be shown below, if not, then know we are working towards this together.

Gradil’s Mother House

In true cooperative community spirit, Quinta dos Machados enjoy partnerships with several local institutions including Gradil’s Mother House and an elderly care home.

One of the wonderful results of the partnership with the elderly home is the making of traditional bread and sweets for guests to enjoy by the care home residents.

What our hosts say..

Transparency is essential if we are all going to grow and improve together and this is why we have dedicated this section to sharing what we love about each place and its hosts. We work with each of our hosts to improve their guest experiences, sustainability practices and local impact, this is where you can learn more about that along with what still needs to be improved, the measures being taken to ensure our hosts continue to move forward and every now and then we’ll come back to update you on their progress.
