Our Quinta is located in the Alentejo, which is within the borders of the National Park Serra de Sao Mamade, near the border to Spain. Alentejo means the land on the other side of the Tejo (Tague) river. This area is known for its vineyards, olive groves, granite rock formations, and hilly landscape. Visitors to the many local castles are rewarded with beautiful views, and one can explore the many villages hidden in the hills. One can also enjoy the rivers, like the Tejo and Sever, and the many lakes in the area.
