Quinta da Fonte is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac within easy walking distance of shops, banks, post office, the beach and Sao Pedro do Estoril railway station. It has a large peaceful and pleasantly landscaped garden for the use of Residents and their friends. There are 10 unfurnished apartments, varying in size from 37m² to 54m² each, comprising a main area used as a living room and bedroom, a kitchenette and an en suite bathroom. There are also 8 individual rooms for those who require a little more help, each of which has its own adjoining bathroom. The larger apartments and rooms may be suitable for couples or as shared accommodation. Both apartments and rooms have individual telephone lines and Cable TV available and are equipped with call systems to contact staff, with 24 hour support provided. Heating, cleaning and laundry of bed linen and towels are included. Electricity is only charged in the apartments and according to usage.
Besides the gardens, there are ample communal areas including a comfortable lounge and dining room. The monthly charges include all meals (breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and evening meal) for the Residents of rooms and one main meal per day plus breakfast if required for apartment Residents. Other meals can be taken at additional cost and visitors are always welcome. Apart from our own in-house services and activities, our links with the local community ensure a steady flow of volunteers to help with outings to sites of cultural interest, shopping trips, libraries, social events, handicrafts and games.
