Located close to the Costa de Prata, the beach is only 15 km away from the quinta. And the city of Caldas da Rainha is even closer. The beaches and restaurants there are a great ways to enjoy Portugal while staying close to the glamping. Still, you can decide to drive a bit further away and see Lisboa or Leiria.

The Costa de Prata beach offers a lot of ways to enjoy your holiday. Raw beaches in a bay or child friendly beaches, the choice is yours. You can go there to relax, but in certain periods, the owners organize a surfing afternoon, where all the family members can learn how to surf. Ask the owners about the dates.
Some other places worth seeing that are within an hours drive that are definitely wort a visit are:
- The caves of Mira d'Aire
- The Convent of Christ in Tomar
- Famous monasteries of Batalha, Alcobaça and Mafra

About the area
Located in the Costa de Prata, the sea coast is very close. You'll be there in 20 minutes, and you have a lot of different (type of) beaches. Same as Caldas da Rainha, where there are also multiple nice restaurants.
Within an hour drive, you'll find the city of Leiria. The Batalha monastery can be found here, which is one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal and a very famous monument. The city of Leiria is also within less than an hour reach from the quinta. Also visit the castle of Leiria from the 12th century. And there are more monuments to visit here, enough to fill your day with activity.
Another city where you can fill a day with activity is of course Lisboa. A day wouldn't even be enough to visit the countless sightseeing spots. Museums, parks, churches and viewing spots, from where you can see the entire city. In Lisboa, there's also one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal: the Belém tower, a famous fortress from the 16th century with a prominent position in Portuguese history.
As you can see, enough to do. Ask the owners if you want to know more!
We are Loes and Jeroen van Elswijk, Dutch owners of small scale Holiday Park Quinta Laranja in Portugal. Ever since we bought our former winery in Portugal we still enjoy this wonderful spot! The first ten years after our emigration, we lived at the terrain of Quinta Laranja itself, in the holiday home that´s now called Casa da Varanda. Together with our daughters Leila Blue (2006), Goa (Portugal, 2009) and of course our cat Nina and our sheep, we had a great time there. But small girls grow up so fast! In Portugal, children already go to a sort of high school at the age of ten. That school wasn´t around the corner and neither were swimming lessons and gymnastics. Therefore in 2016 we moved to a nice green neighbourhood of the town of Caldas da Rainha, close to the park. Just a 15 minute drive from Quinta Laranja and never a traffic jam!

Lovely, booked again
For the second time we had a very nice holiday on this quinta. Just like the previous year, Loes and Jeroen were again very hospitable and present when you needed them. They have managed to find a good balance in this. The new Portuguese employee Ana is also an asset; a very cordial lady who speaks perfect English. We find the small scale, the tranquility and being able to be on yourself, if you want, wonderful on this quinta. The accommodations are equipped with everything needed and offer sufficient privacy. For us and our 10 year old daughter this is the ideal vacation spot. No big crowded swimming pools and a small area where she can go her own way and cozy pizza, bbq evenings with other children. The region where the quinta is located also offers a wealth of beautiful nature, culture and places of interest. This is also the ideal place for surf enthusiasts such as our daughter. Through Loes and Jeroen she has gained a new hobby and we can regularly be found on the beach of Baleal at the fantastic surfing school Naturexperience. Overall a wonderful vacation spot that we have booked again for 2018!

Super nice place with children !!
Wonderful place - for yourself and for children :-) Everything has been thought of. Large and small swimming pool, everything is fenced, Jeroen and Loes are super sweet and helpful. A huge cupboard with toys, jeu de boules, Indian tents, trampoline ... It is much nicer and nicer in real life than on the pictures of the site :-)
We enjoyed!! Pieter & Eefje
