"What are you looking for?" is always the first question asked at Horta da Quintã. We want to help and advise you, so that you have the holiday you have always wanted.
In addition to the idyllic setting, this tourism unit offers a variety of experiences linked to nature, starting with breakfast that favours local and organic products. It also offers several activity packages, on request, which include workshops that unveil traditions and endogenous products. The baking of the unique Alentejo bread, the production of honey, wine, cheese, jams, olive oil and medronho, and the exploration of products such as tulips, prickly pears and aromatic herbs.
Horta da Quintã is also the starting point for discovering all that the municipality of Mértola has to offer, from birdwatching, which gives us to know the species of birds that find habitat in the natural park of the Guadiana Valley, canoe trips on the river, paintball, fishing, nature observation tours, mountain biking, jeep tours, stargazing and cultural tours (with the possibility of a tour guide) in our magnificent village with an intoxicating history to tell to those who pass through it.
In addition to cultural and natural tourism, the geographical location of this tourism unit also makes it possible to get away to the river beach of Mina de S. Domingos, awarded several times for its quality, which is less than 8 km away.
We also highlight the diversity and gastronomic quality offered by the surrounding restaurants, which explore endogenous delicacies such as local game and fish from the Guadiana River.
