Hey there it was lovely to welcome you back to Monte da Quinta. We hope you dont leave it another six years before returning. Great to have you back here and to see you enjoying late spring here in all its glory.

Rugged un-spoilt beaches along the west coast are within an hour and offer much to explore, water sports and the walking the rota vicentina coastal paths. Enjoy the fabulous fresh seafood grilled to order and sample the wines of the region.

Getting around
The roads are amazingly quiet and stunningly beautiful at any time of the year. The motorway provides a fast track option, from and to the airports, but even these roads are very quiet and very simple to navigate. Driving here is a pleasure, but you can always hop on one of our bicycles as an alternative way to explore the countryside. We have quiet walking routes immediately from the property, no need for the car.
