Estate Quinta da Saimeira

The estate Quinta da Saimeira is located on a small side-road between Portagem and Marvão. The estate is 12 hectares and consists of cultivated land with fruit-treed terraces and olive groves and a wild part with big granite rocks. Around the house it is possible to pick fruit right off the tree throughout the year from the large variety of trees: for example orange, lemon and persimmon; or find fresh herbs for your cooking like, thyme, mint or laurel.

The shepherd

The shepherd, Sr. Antonio brings his flock of eighty sheep from the valley to graze in our olive grove and on the land. The sound of the clinking bells tells you where they are.
