Oops… it looks like you have gone off the beaten track

No worries, that is what we are all about here at Quinta Rural. The best way to discover Portugals hidden gems, is to loose track of time and direction. Just follow the sun, get blown by the wind, stay put at waterfall, go a little bit wild. You will always end up somewhere. In fact, a smart person once said, that if you don´t know where you´re going, it´s a lot harder to get lost.

In case you were headed in a certain direction, we are happy to help you back on track.  If you were just wandering, please continue enjoying your walkabout our site.

As we built the entire website ourselves (thanks to WordPress), lay out, SEO, pictures, translation etc. you can imagine it being impossible to translate all pages into all languages. Being Dutch ourselves, the Dutch version is most complete as it is our mother tongue. English comes in as a good second, followed by Portuguese (still have quite some translations to do).  The other languages only have 1 (or a few) page(s). Thank you for understanding.
