A Paradise for hikers, bird watchers and wildlife lovers

 

Seasons take hold of the land, letting it exhale at different paces, which makes hiking around our property a singular experience at any time of year. In springtime, wildflowers quickly transform the scenery left by mild winters, abundantly covering the fields. Summer is golden hot, with fields of wheat only dotted by cork and holm oaks. Autumn and winter are crowded with about one hundred different species of birds, making the Alentejo a paradise for birdwatchers.
