The town of Tomar, situated about 100 kilometers from Lisbon Airport and the Spanish border, is the heart of the country and the soul of historical Portugal.

The original medieval town was born inside the walls of the castle, built in 1160 by Gualdim Pais, the fourth master of the order of the Temple (Knights Templars).

Tomar is a cultural and tourist center of international standing, of which the historic and architectural nucleus is the Templars Castle and the Convent of Christ. The town embraces its past and reveals frequently with a variety of festivals devoted to times and beliefs gone by. The most renown of all the festivals held in Tomar is the Festa dos Tabuleiros, which is held once every four years. The historic center and the Festival of Trays, unique in the world, are the most important features.

The present historical center grew under the protection of the powerful Order of the Knights of Christ, the material and spiritual heir of the defunct Order of the Templars or out of devotion to the Holy

Queen in the 14th Century - when the Order of Christ was founded.

Although modern day Tomar embraces it's past wholeheartedly it is definitely a town of the future. The University of Tomar stands on the outskirts of the town and attracts students from all over the world each year to its courses.

There is a hospital, several health centers, municipal sports centers, banks, cafe bars, restaurants, shops, art galleries, post offices, pharmacies and schools

Iremos repetir em breve:-) obrigada Anne Sophie ate breve. Lena

"A Gourmet place to stay and review daily life as simple as it is- outstanding."

The experience starts when passing Barragem do Castelo de Bode and it´s spechless lake. Arriving Quinta do Foenix: the surprise to find a pitoresque Portuguese House on top of a hill, and breath the clean non spoiled atmosphere in between the hills. We then met Anne Sophie, a bright courageous friendly owner Lady, who gently wellcomed us . The house is cozy, simply very well decorated hosting us for a romantic and peacefull stay. Thank you for the proficient service quality and the great meal we had there - uau! Thank you Anne Sophie - it really was the state of mind we needed and certainly the place we will for sure be back soon.

Your appreciation is recognition of a warm and simple lifestyle, and thank you wholeheartedly. Do not hesitate to visit us again; you will always be welcomed as friends.

"Excelente casa para férias em família"

sem dúvida um óptimo achado mesmo em cima da ida para férias com o meu marido e 2 filhos (10 meses e 4 anos). Um golpe de sorte! A Anne-Sophie recebeu-nos muitíssimo bem, tendo-nos oferecido à chegada uns excelentes ovos, azeite e mel da região! A casa está muito bem equipada. Para quem viaja com crianças/bebes tínhamos tudo: cadeirinha, berço, brinquedos para o bébe, brinquedos para o mais velho (adorou conhecer o Monopólio), muitos DVDs. E a casa super quentinha em todas as divisões. Da próxima vez só nos falta experimentar o grelhador no exterior. Acrescento ainda que é muito central, perto de inúmeros pontos de interesse.

Ainda bem que gostaram a casa. O meu objectivo é exceder a expectativas dos meus hóspedes. A minha recompensa é vê-los passar umas férias inesquecíveis nesta região. Muito obrigado e até à próxima!

"Morgonsol på terrassen"

Jag bodde i den bekväma lägenhetsdelen mitt emot stugan och hade strålande morgonsol på terrassen varje morgon (i november!). Stor dubbelsäng och fräscht badrum, varje morgon serverades nybakad frukost som värdinnan åkte och handlade på det lokala bageriet (från smörgåsar på nybakat bröd med ost och skinka till chokladcroissanter). Stor blomstrande trädgård som är uppdelad, en del för hennes snälla hundar och en del för gäster. På kvällarna lyste blodröda solnedgångar (se bild). Detta boende/resemål lämpar sig utmärkt för par, vänner eller för den som reser ensam och söker lugnet. Även barnfamiljer då det finns många lokala sevärdheter i nära anslutning. Bilburen är bra att vara. Quinta do Feonix ligger ca. 1,5 timme från flygplatsen i Lissabon och representerar ett mer genuint Portugal. Dessutom billigt - en trerätters middag på goda råvaror + vin kostade ca. 15 euro. Hade en underbar weekend på den portugisiska landsbygden och jag ser fram emot att återvända!

Tack och jag är så glad över att du trivdes här på Quinta do Feonix, ser fram emot att välkomna dig tillbaka!

"En riktig pärla att komma tillbaka till!"

Högt upp i mitten av Portugal ligger denna fantastiska retreat 75 minuter med bil från Lissabon. Här finns mycket att se och uppleva inom 50 km radie. Smakfullt inredda rum med högsta standard året runt. Servicen är exceptionell. Vi kunde få frukost serverad på rummet eller i trädgården hela förmiddagen. En utsökt middag med lokala specialiteter serverades i gästhuset vilken jag sent kommer att glömma. Här kan jag stanna i veckor och njuta av det lantliga och avstressande livet, lyssna till tystnaden vid sidan om allfartsvägarna eller åka runt till små sevärda städer vilka erbjuder en unik upplevelse speciellt om man som jag besöker området off season. Då är området fritt från turister och man kommer det genuina livet närmare. Värdinnan kommer från Belgien och talar utmärkt engelska. Hon anstränger verkligen för att man ska få en oförglömlig vistelse. Jag kan rekommendera denna pärla på det varmaste.

Tack så mycket. Jag hoppas att vi ses snart igen. Du är redan en del av familjen.

"Super hospitality and beautiful location"

We stayed at the Quinta do Feonix for couple of days. We flew into Lisbon airport and approx. one hour drive; motorway all the way. This property ticks all the boxes. We were met on time by the lovely owner who was very informative. A very generous welcome pack was also at hand. The cupboards were full of all the little things that normally you need to buy when self-catering. The house is full of character. It is spotlessly clean with very good quality bed linens and towels. The house was lovely and cool even when it was hot outside. We had many lovely walks on the nearby rural quiet roads watching farmers with their pear, lemon and orange trees. The location of the house is excellent, just a short walk to the town of Martinchel. Constantia and Tomar only 10 à 15 minutes’ drive are fantastic. When we didn't cook in we dined in some of the many excellent restaurants in surroundings of Tomar. We also enjoyed the local wine and fresh produce. It is well worth hiring a car as we were spoilt with the amount of fantastic beaches at the lake around Castelo de Bode within 5 min drive. The locals celebrate the Saints feast days with great food, music, wine etc., very enjoyable evenings. We intend to return to the Center of Portugal and would book this house again. We really loved it. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a great house and great value. The guesthouse at the Quinta do Feonix is lovely in fine setting and we felt privileged to be able to stay there.

Thank you - we are always appreciative of good reviews, and guests are the people who tell what the house and area is really like! This area of Portugal is so relaxing but with lots of interesting places to visit nearby. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday.

"Wonderful place"

Short stay in this charming house where the owner offers you a truly unique place in nature and quiet. The house is equipped and furnished with taste and refinement. Very comfortable with a large garden and barbecue. The area is worth a visit with the possibility to bathe in a lake nearby with clear water. Warmly recommended!

Thank you for the "very good" review! I'm always keen to get feetback as it is so important for new guests to be confident in the service we provide.

"Welcoming! Friendly! Peaceful!"

We stayed at Quinta do Feonix over Christmas and New Year's and had a wonderful time. Anne-Sophie made us feel welcome from the moment we stepped out of the car. The house had plenty of room for our family of 4 and our dog. It was very well equipped and had everything we needed for our stay. My girls enjoyed playing outside and my husband enjoyed the walks in the surrounding region with our dog. I enjoyed a relaxing holiday. We plan to return!!!

It was a pleasure having you and we hope to see you again one day.
