If you´re looking to spend your holiday in Portugal, see yourself experiencing rural life, enjoying nature, wandering through medieval villages, hiking the old mountain trails, go on an outdoor adventure, swim in natural bassins and sniff some local culture, you´ve found the right spot.

family-run nature retreat

At Quinta Rural you’ll be welcomed by the two of us, Natascha,  my 2015 son Tiago (and some horses, dogs, cats & whatever the cat dragged in). When staying with us, you can always count on a warm welcome from passionate owners, loving their life & home and going to great length for you to experience the best their place has to offer.

mountain life

we invite you to experience the beauty of our mountain life. Slow down, take a moment and relax. Whether you’ll discover this rural area by foot, on adventure or by car. Maybe even choose to participate in some old fashioned hard farming work, be invited into a local’s hospitable house or help us take care of the donkeys … we are sure you will appreciate this #slowlife feeling and hopefully even take it home with you.

small scale

but big in space! We purposely choose to keep Quinta Rural small scale and exclusive, even though our domain size isn’t. 50.000 M2 in total : 2,5 hectares camping grounds and 2,5 donkey & horse farm.

What to see & do when glamping or camping at Quinta Rural

We’re set in the ‘Serra da Cabreira’ ,  an authentic mountain area in Northern Portugal. Just outside a near-abandoned medieval village, where space, peace and amazing views make for a real sense of freedom.  Pure, rugged and full of adventure. Located at 865 meters altitude, thus a good climate for both relaxing ánd active holidays. Several playful and adventurous hiking trails start at our farm, with many more in the direct area. We also have a vast offer of outdoor activities such as canyoning, horse back riding, swimming, mountainbiking, rafting and adventure parcs. Natural parks the Alvao and Peneda de Geres are well within an hour’s drive.  When in need of some city-energy, we will happily point out the historical cities to discover within an hours drive, such as Porto, Braga, Guimaraes and Barcelos.
