You’re most welcome at Tapada Cultural.

Welcome to our authentic Quinta da Tapada, beautiful situated just outside Lamas Ferreira d’Aves in the Viseu district in the middle of Portugal. This area, the Beira’s, is probably not the most famous and developed touristic area of Portugal, but absolutely the most charming and authentic. The Beira’s are famous for their picturesque villages and historic cities in the hilly outback. Time has stand still and in some places it looks like you step back in time for over 50 years.

You’ll feel right at home at our Quinta da Tapada. In 2008 we renovated the fantastic, big estate in which a fortunate Portuguese family lived for decades. Even nowadays you’ll feel the atmosphere of ancient history at our Quinta. We are proud to offer you our beautiful guestrooms. Also our new added apartment in the old Quinta is a lovely place to stay. During your stay we provide you several creative workshops.

The situation of Quinta da Tapada is so exceptional that you’ll find several special places within 50 km. radius.
From our site you’ll walk, through beautiful woods, to the Rio Vouga with the original Roman Bridge. The nature is breathtaking, the locals most friendly and the weather lovely. A beautiful scenery, also for the less sportive people. By return you can relax in our pool and enjoy one of the regional wines we offer to you.

We’re ready to make your stay unforgettable!

Kind regards,

Astrid and Ben van Veen
