Horse rides, across the country , beginig in the property are available.

In the area around you can take many different tours by yourself. We will advise a lot of them. Car rental is recommended to explore all around, beaches, landscapes, traditional and small villages and fishing harbors, and the secular boat trips called “moliceiros”, name of the very old boats for harvesting of algae from the river “Ria de Aveiro” for fertilizing fields. Nature circuits for seeing birds in the fields of the lagune "Ria de Aveiro" are very intresting.
