Quinta da Poupa
An agroforestry and permaculture project & holiday apartment
Wake up to the sounds of tweeting birds, have a delicious espresso type coffee (café or bica) in one of the cafe’s, enjoy the local cuisine in the several restaurants that our village hosts, have a chit chat with the locals on the streets, and relax.
We have a holiday rental, 1 bedroom apartment, that you can book to have a lovely stay in our charming little Alentejo village. Our village is the perfect base for sightseeing in the area, or relaxing on the Amieira beach. The Alqueva lake offers numerous activities, such as boat trips, swimming, fishing, and various watersports.
If you enjoy rolling up your sleeves we are offering workshops in our mini farm. Depending on the season, the workshops vary from gardening activities, to learning to recognize the local herbal plants, making traditional Alentejo bread in our conventional oven, making organic soaps or other ad-hoc activities.
The gardening workshop is all focused on syntropic farming, agroforestry, and permaculture practices. We work with a mix of these three farming principles, to benefit the most from our farm and be durable at the same time. We don’t use any chemical products, other than the approved natural supplements for permaculture gardening.
