The Property

Located in the heart of the marshland and in the equestrian council of Golegã, the Quinta dos Álamos is well-known to welcome its guests with all its honourable history and tradition, spanning more than three centuries.

The Quinta dos Álamos is one of three great references for agriculture and cattle breeding within the council and offers a long history, respect to nature and cultural and artistic activities, being the origin of its foundation, to its guests.

At this place of brave people guests can immerse themselves in the experience of generations dedicated to the fields, respecting habits and the preservation of nature.

Enriching activities will show you that ecology is a Portuguese concept which goes from generation to generation revealing the ancestral respect that we have for this mother which gives, has and claims everything. Because at Quinta dos Álamos we honour Her every single day.

These are some of our values that we would like to share with you.

Looking forward to welcoming you!
