From the heights of this privileged scenic overlook, we can say as the Portuguese author Miguel Torga once did: “It’s not the panorama that our eyes contemplate: it is an excess of nature”.
The estate Quinta das Escomoeiras is hidden in the terraces of an enchanted land, a small paradise set on the banks of the Tâmega River, offering uninterrupted views of forest-covered mountains to contemplate exquisite details of the pastoral rusticity of the Minho region.
The magnificence of the landscape extends on into our love for welcoming guests, and those who visit feel the coziness, the freedom of being and staying at a refined place, yet still feeling comfortable and at home. The estate proudly offers 9 themed rooms, in a variety of styles and sizes, with names such as Drunken Duck Pub, The Old Cock Pub or The Old Trout Inn. This is a place which tantalizes each of the senses. From the start of the day, sitting at breakfast on the marvelous terrace with a view out into a wide sweeping canvas of green, you can savor our jams and natural juices made from fruits of our own labor.
Wine tourism is one of our fortés. Here you can taste what the earth has to offer, from vine to grape, as you experience the processes of winemaking and drink the nectar of the land surrounding you. Our vines and fruit trees are free of herbicide treatments and, adhering to our standards of environmental commitment, we have incorporated methods of organic farming.
Coupled with standards of comfort and hospitality, the estate Quinta das Escomoeiras is the secret place you will love to discover.
