Mongolian Yurt on a Central Portugal glamping
An original Mongolian nomad tent on a glamping in Portugal, close to the coast
- Glamping near Leiria
- Close to the beach
- Terrace with both sun and shade for yourself
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Beautiful nature views
In Central Portugal, 10 kilometers from the Atlantic coast, you will find this original Mongolian yurt on a small quinta. Enjoy the nice and warm Portugese weather on your own terrace and have a beautiful view on the valley next to the glamping.
On your way to Portugal with your loved one, or maybe with the kids? The Portugese sun, a beautiful view over the valley full of farms, they're all there while you're enjoying life at the barbecue.
The original Mongolian nomad tent will be your place to be! However, not everything you need is in there. You also have two little houses at your disposal, one is the kitchen and the other one is the bathroom, that you'll have all for yourself. And if that wasn't enough, there's still a nice terrace all for yourself, and you can choose to enjoy both sun and shade. And in the colder periods of the year, you can get a free gas heater to get the yurt nice and warm in no time!
When you're in Portugal in summer, you can be sure to catch warm weather. What could you need to cool off other than the swimming pool that's on the quinta?
THINGS TO DO
For the kids, this stay will be the time of their lives! There are a lot of animals to cuddle, such as sheep, goats, donkeys, little pigs, chickens, a cat, a dog and even a big turtle! You can even have a little ride on a donkey!
The beach is only 10 kilometers away, so you'll be there in no time. Once you're there, you have enough options for beaches; Sao Martinho do Porto, Salir do Porto or Foz do Arelho are all nearby. Are you on a holiday with the kids? No problem, there are enough beaches that are very suitable for kids. You can even learn how to surf at one of them! But otherwise, there are also places to enjoy the rough sea.
There's also a lot of culture to see close to the quinta. From the Seven Wonders of Portugal, three are within 30km distance! In Alcobaça you can find the biggest monastery in Portugal. Another monastery can be found in Batalha. And in Óbidos, there is a big medieval castle that is very well-preserved. All those are very imposant buildings and are definitely worth a visit!
Last but not least, the landscape makes this region a great place for hiking. The owners can provide you with hiking routes on request. And also for other questions, they're always willing to help!
About the area
There's enough things to see and to do in the Costa de Prata area. There are a lot of beaches on the coastline, the choice is yours! Enjoy the rough sea at Praia de Nazare, a big beach to catch some wind on a hot day. Are you with the kids? You can also go to Sao Martinho do Porto, Salir do Porto or Foz do Arelho. The water is calmer and more pleasant, so that's definitely suitable for kids. At Foz do Arelho you can even learn how to surf if you like!
Don't feel like going to the beach? There is a big aquatics park in Nazaré as well, Norpark, with a lot of slides. Not feeling like going anywhere? The little swimming pool on the quinta might be just what you need.
It's not all beaches and swimming at the Costa de Prata. There's also a lot of culture to visit. In the city of Alcobaça, you'll find Mosteiro, the biggest monastery in Portugal, and one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal! The place has a lot to do with the establishment of the state and therefore has a prominent position in Portugese history. Definitely worth a visit!
Other than the Mosteiro, you can find two other Wonders in the nearby region. Visit the Castle of Óbidos and see a fortified medieval town that is still very much intact, or go to to Batalha and see the big monastery from the 14th century.
As you can see, enough to do in the nearby region. Ask the owners if you need any information, they will gladly help you!
In October 2014 we (Claudia, Lars and our son Fadi) moved from the still beloved Amsterdam, to a small village in the beautiful Central Portugal. We didn't want to leave the Netherlands so much, but we were lucky enough to be able to work at B&B Quinta Antes o Vento, set up by the parents of Lars. We are glad to have taken that opportunity! Although we do not live on the Quinta ourselves, but in the village about 4 minutes away, we are found on the Quinta on frequent basis. And if we are not there, we are always nearby. Look forward to see you at our Portugese glamping!

Cozy accommodation, a fantastic environment
We stayed in the Yurt, all luxury present and yet the camping feeling. In a beautiful area where there is much to see in the nearby area. Beach 20 minutes away by car. Cozy, friendly owners with a lot of knowledge of the area and give good tips. We are definitely going back.
