Quinta da Vila Maria is in a peaceful location on the edge of the village of Reguengo, in the unspoilt Serra de São Mamede Natural Park.

For walkers, bird watchers and mountain bikers there are quiet trails and roads through the hills to explore, leading you through open countryside, pine forest and groves of chestnut, olive and cork trees. In spring and early summer wild flowers carpet the meadows. Self-guided walking maps for the various walking trails are...
