Important Notice

Our outdoor activities take place in forest space.

Co-Drive Experience in a Can Am Side by Side (SSV)

Are you a motorsport fan, a speed lover or simply one of strong emotions?
Our co-drive experience puts you next to a racing driver on a track used for testing today's most competitive cars, always with great safety concerns.

Racing runs in the family. Luís is a former two time Portuguese cross country champion and keeps racing at the highest level, and Francisco is in his 3rd season driving in the Portuguese Side by Side championship. Since the beggining, we build and prepare our own cars, so if you are passionate by cars, this is an experience you can't miss!

Electric mountain bike guided tour

The Serra de Grândola is a paradise for mountain bikers on a national level, with many valleys, water streams, single-tracks and mountains with breathtaking views. With our electric Mondraker mountain bikes, we make this paradise accessible to everyone, and challenge you to discover new limits on a guided tour where you will also be offered local gastronomic experiences.

Yoga classes and sound healing sessions

With the sound of birds, the shade of trees and the light of the sun, Margarida leads our guests in one-hour group yoga classes, either early in the morning or at sunset.

Margarida obtained her 200 YTT in Guatemala in 2020, but has been practicing since 2012. Her preferred style of yoga is Vinyasa - a type of yoga that links movement and breath to achieve balance in the body and mind. From the Sanskrit 'placing in a particular way', vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow. 

On her way through yoga, she discovered mantras and how sound can be used as medicine.

She studied Sound Ceremony with masters Jaya Saraswati (from Guatemala) and Ricardo Mones (from Mexico). At the Herdade, she holds private and group sound healing sessions, journeys guided by different sounds, of different vibrations and frequencies, leading you to a state of total relaxation and healing.

Please let her know in advance if you are interested in a class or session, or if you need any further info.

Hiking trails and Owners' Tour

In order to provide access to the houses, the springs and to allow the harvesting of cork, over centuries and generations paths have been opened all over the estate, many of them hidden or little used. We decided to share this treasure with our guests, creating a network of marked trails, with four different levels, which can be traversed on foot or by bicycle, independently. If you prefer a custom experience, you can do the Owners' tour, where you will walk these and other paths accompanied by one of the members of the owning family, and where you will learn much more about the history of the places and about the Montado (cork oak forest).
