Surrounded by wild orchids, mature fig, olive, carob and oak trees, fragrant herbs, and the hypnotic soundtrack of owls calling and crickets chirring, you will find an authentic Portuguese retreat with its own private spring fed lake, the perfect place to get away from it all.

The Lake

The lake at the Quinta is the perfect place to swim, relax and check out the inhabitants... There are 3 types of dragonflies to spot, a multitude of frogs, and even an elusive coot! At dusk you can watch the birds swooping low to snatch water and also the unwary insects. It is surrounded by reeds which filter the water, and also tiny fish who work hard to keep it clean.
