Moinhos do Dão Eco Quinta

Location and atmosphere

Moinhos do Dão, located in the Beira Alta-region of Portugal, is a small rural tourism business on the banks of the river Dão, ideal for people who want to be surrounded by natural beauty and experience rural Portugal. Spending time at Moinhos do Dão offers a true back to nature experience. You will find a wide variety of flora and fauna here like many different types of ferns, wild lavender and animals such as the metallic-blue King Fisher bird and otters. The focus on living in harmony with nature plays a key role in the way life is lived at Moinhos do Dão and we want to make that experience tangible for people that visit.


On the quinta the old Miller's house, the mills and barns have been restored and now house several rustic guest quarters and the terraced terrain provides space for camping. Our river beach and various areas on and around the quinta provide an ideal natural space for relaxing and exploring. Our restaurant serves a Portuguese & world menu and uses produce from our garden, regional and seasonal products for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Electricity is generated with water and solar power and we strive to use water and electricity efficiently. We offer guests services such as: a self-guided hikes, vegetables and herbs from our biological garden, indepth information about cultural trips and information about wine tasting, to name just a few.
