QuintAlagoa

Location and atmosphere

This beautiful 5 ha family farm is situated in the Serra da Estrela. It did not take Geert long to turn this isolated property into a flourishing organic farm. At the heart of the quinta is an old manor house built in slate and granite typical of this region. The property features olive and fruit orchards, a vineyards, fields and bee-hives.

Facillities

The farmhouse has a cosy dormitory for max. 8 guests. The new sanitary building with four showers and six toilets was built in the traditional style. The opening period is from around half May till half October. The large, sunny terrace is ideal for enjoying a glass of organic wine. Just nearby you can take a refresing dive in a barrage of the river Zêzere. The organic garden supplies ingredients for a healthy meal, snack or breakfast. Geert is well acquainted with the region and can recommend a number of unique walking and cycling trips. A real opportunity to get to know the environment! In the reading room you find information about historical villages and the flora and fauna of the Serra da Estrela; here you can also play parlor games. Quintalagoa is an ideal place for groups. For information, please contact us.

Surroundings and activities

The area is great for sunshine and relaxation, but there is also plenty to do. The surrounding mountains can be explored on foot or by (mountain) bike and there are local open-air markets and picturesque mountain villages - where you can meet the Portuguese kitchen - to visit.
