“Birding in Portugal blends guided and non-guided birdwatching throughout southern Portugal and the Alentejo with a centralised location in a sparsely populated region of unique beauty.”
Your stay in this friendly country is hosted at Quinta do Barranco da Estrada, a small family-run hotel in a stunning lakeside location in the Alentejo. The Quinta has an international reputation for good food, company and service, and its size, with a maximum of twenty guests, ensures that all guests feel welcome from the moment they arrive.
Moreover, the Quinta is ideally suited to those guests whose numbers include couples of whom only one is a dedicated birder, as there are plenty of facilities for a relaxing holiday away from all the hustle and bustle of a normal destination.
Birding tours roam all over Southern Portugal, from the Plains of the Alentejo to Lisbon, the west coast and the Algarve.
Small group or individual day or half day birding tours with dedicated host and expert, by car or on foot. There is a large list of birds you can see here on the main website - specialities include Black Winged kites, Great Bustards, Little Bustards, Montagu's Harriers, Bonelli's Eagles and Short-toed Eagles.
Birdwatchers and their families - the quinta is very family friendly - as well as people who simply want to relax in good company, with great food, and plenty of free watersports on the lake.
