Quinta de Mourães - turismo de habitação, turismo rural, turismo norte de portugalQuinta de Mourães

Situated in the county of Vila Nova de Gaia, 3km from the Crestuma-Lever dam, and 25 minutes from the city of Oporto, the Quinta de Mourães is a 50 hectar estate through which flows the river Uíma making the area fertile and lush.

The first buildings date from the end of the XVII century and the present owners are descendents of the original family.

Within the walled enclosure is a garden of approximately 2 hectars with fountains and small water-falls together with rare species of rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias.

Depending on the time of the year the paths and flower beds offer a constantly changing scenario.

Within the estate live a variety of birds such as swans, shelducks, mallards, harlequin ducks, geese, pheasants and peacocks.

While maintaining their original architectural style, both the Rhododendron and the Schist houses have been equipped with all modern comforts.

In addition of the houses and the gardens there is the sunny swimming-pool, the stone flagged drying patio for the corn cobs beneath the welcome shade of the old slatted wooden storage shed, pathways through the scrub and trails winding their way through the forest.

In short, the Quinta de Mourães is where modern comfort meets 50 hectars of gardens and forest making it an ideal place for holidays, weekends and relaxing moments.

We look forward to your visit!
