Quinta do Ferro

Quinta do Ferro is one of the largest and more ancient family estates in this region. It is a privileged place for quietness surrounded on all sides by nature and countryside. The estate (600 ha) is situated in the valley of the River Távora which flowing under a Roman Bridge, goes through the estate for about 4km. Surrounding the area and still within the estate are ranges of hills with water courses meandering discretely between banks of lush vegetation, several kilometres of forest paths through pine, oak-trees and cedar forests. This landscape inspires outdoor pursuits. The manor-house is located in the center of the property. Today, the farm cultivates fruit trees like apple orchards, produces potatoes and raises cattle and farming is carried out in a natural way.
