To Portugal with a walking club
Quinta do Pomarinho is an estate with several holiday homes and a camping site in Portugal. A beautiful, natural environment at the base of the Serra de São Mamede natural park, on the border of Portugal with Spain. The quinta is situated on 62 acres of land with grazing grounds, hills, olive- and fruit trees, cork- and holm oaks, and small waters.
To Portugal with your walking club
Aside from group walking holidays and self guided walking holidays for small parties, you can also go to Portugal with your walking club. Quinta do Pomarinho organizes walking holidays for your walking club or -party of 6 to 12 persons. You will discover the Alentejo with your walking club, using one of our holiday homes as your home base. Depending on the program, you will make magnificent, well outlined walking tours through the Serra de São Mamede natural park, through river areas, along authentic white fortified towns such as Castelo de Vide, over smuggling paths, through cork oak forests, along colonies of griffon vultures, over hills, or along menhirs and dolmens.
The flexible walking program can be adjusted exactly to the wishes of your walking club. The walks in Portugal vary in length up to a maximum of 18 kilometers. At the quinta all necessary walking information is of course available to you. If desired, you can opt to walk with a guide. You decide in which period you will walk. The experience is that April, May, June, September, and October are on average the best months to walk, due to the pleasant walking weather.
