When we first discovered the Quinta, we envisioned putting down roots here by renovating it into a family home and connecting with this historical land. Montemor-o-Novo became our favorite city, far from the noise of urban hustle and bustle.
Once we started researching the historical importance of this land, our project grew into the desire to share this experience with others who are looking for a peaceful environment to enjoy nature, and who need on a family holiday, just like we did!
Fifteen years have passed since the beginning of this project and that time has been spent meticulously preserving the historic elements of the Quinta. The project has progressed slowly, matching the pace of life in Alentejo.
The ongoing development of Quinta da Asneira is to keeping social and environmental sustainability at the forefront of all the decision making. We are currently creating additional infrastructures for rural tourism purposes in Alentejo. With ideas for expansion flourishing, the future looks promising.
For example, our tank at the Quinta, which was once used for watering and leisure, is currently being transformed into a swimming pool while still preserving the charm of the original structure.
We believe in the values that Quinta da Asneira represents, respect for nature, sharing culture and history, and human connection.

“The end of one journey is just the beginning of another.
It is necessary to see what has not been seen,
to see again what has already been seen,
to see in spring what is seen in summer,
to see by day what was seen at night...
It is necessary to go back to the steps that were taken,
to repeat them, and to chart new paths.”
— José Saramago, book Journey to Portugal
