At the Quinta we are lucky to be situated just an hour's drive away from Portugal's highest mainland peak, the Serra da Estrela (literal translation - mountain of the stars). With the highest point being at 1,993 metres above sea level, the mountain range is an area of extreme beauty, to be enjoyed all year round. It is considered a UNESCO geopark, with a large variety of plants and birds.

In the winter months, it is the only place in Portugal where you can ski, sledge or snowboard. On other days, there are 375km of marked trails of varying degrees of difficulty, catering for all ages and abilities. There are various local tour agencies that organise day trips filled with adventure - let us know about your requirements for an experience of a lifetime!
