About Us

Having bought Monte da Quinta in the summer of 2002 with the intention of it becoming our holiday retreat, we found it increasingly hard to return from visits to the hustle and bustle of the UK. With much planning and determination, finally in the summer of 2005, we moved to Portugal.

Project managing the build and restoration of the farmhouses, we took inspiration from some of the fantastic accommodation we had stayed at within Europe. With our love for all things rustic, traditional and the ambience of the Casa de Campo “House of the Country” life style, Monte da Quinta started to evolve.

We wanted to maintain the traditions and farming practises that had taken place at Monte da Quinta for many generations. With little knowledge of our own, we enlisted the help of a former employee of the farm. Despite our initial lack of the Portuguese language, his patience with us and dedication to the land and the animals has helped us to keep farm blooming.

Monte da Quinta now combines modern facilities and traditional architecture with an even balance between rural tourism, farming and a unique way of life. With our continuing success, we have settled into the landscape and lives of the local people very nicely. Thanks to the fantastic support and recommendations from many of our returning guests, we now have a viable business with visitors from all over the world.

Interaction with our guests

We are here to meet and greet our guests, to introduce them to the property and answer any questions they may have. We are always available should they need us during their stay. We provide our guests with lots of useful information upon arrival. Tips on things not to be missed, advise on places to discover, and the all important practical stuff.

We believe It is that kind of personal touch and interaction that has helped us achieved such a high percentage of happy, returning guests.

We have held a rural tourism licence since 2006, classification Casa de Campo No.1/2006.
