The ecological farm Dominio Vale do Mondego is situated directly at the Rio Mondego, in the Serra da Estrela, the largest Natural Park of Portugal. The farm measures a total of 33,3 hectare pastures, wood, orchards and nature. A private dirtroad leads to the farm. It is quiet, green and beautiful here. Beside the Biodynamic agriculture we offer special accommodation for guests. The 3 independent Quintas (Portuguese for farm) are restored with respect for tradition but with an open eye for modern design.

In our biodynamic agricultural practice we focus on the maintenance and use of the organic material within the company: traditional potmanure, a good pasture keeping and a sound crop rotation. The farm complies with European Legislation organic Agriculture 2092/91. All 35 parcels are denominated as organic agriculture and directed at conservation of bio-diversity. This accounts for the conservation of wild plant varieties and animals and threatened agricultural breeds as the Bordeleira milksheep, the Lusitano horse and the Mirandês donkey.

For our private housing we have the main farm of Quinta da Portela, for Turismo Rural we offer the Quinta do Rio, Casa das Pombas and the Quinta das Canas as independent self catering holidayhomes. In the annex buildings of Quinta da Portela we created 2 Cabanas, independent rooms for Bed & Breakfast for 2 persons. A rural campsite is located in the olive orchard of Quinta da Portela, with 15 places on 1,5 ha and an attractive bath house. Close by are the stables and the Lagar Lounge, the building where formerly the olives were presses and its terraces. In the Lagar Lounge you will find the reception, library, bar, piano, WIFI, tv, DVD.
