Sports

There are many different sports on offer for our more active guests.



Unguided hikes start directly outside our front door into very scenic areas. Tracks to the peaks of the Foia (902m) and the Picota (774m) begin right outside the Quinta. Leave the car at home and discover on foot the diverse flora and fauna of the Mediterranean.

Recently six perfectly marked trails of varying length and difficulty have been created in and around Monchique. The Tourist Office of Monchique provides excellent free maps of these six trails.

The coast offers the choice between cliff walks, kilometre-long strolls along the beach and in the dunes, or tours along the rivers of Ria Formosa or Ria de Alvor.
All these areas can also be explored with a guide. On offer are moonlight walks, bird watching courses or an introduction to herbs and mushrooms.

The Quinta no Estaço is an ideal starting point for mountain bike or road bike tours, and for trips to the surfing spots close by, or canoe and paddling tours.

 

Golfing on the Algarve is particularly attractive with over 30 excellent golf courses offering spectacular views of the coast and generous fairways and greens.

The closest golf courses, the „Morgado“ und „Alamos“ are only a 20-minute car ride from the Quinta.
