Occupy your free time is not a problem at Quinta das Lavandas. Inserted in a fantastic region, inhabited since immemorial times and possessing historical remains from several periods, the difficulty, most of the times, will be to choose what to do. But between walking and observing the existing prehistoric sites in the farm area, bathing in the dam of Póvoa e Meada, stroll through the rocky surfacing, observe a sky punctuated by a most translucent glow of stars, enjoy the sunset or the moonrise, bicycle tours, the choice is all up to you.
Seminars and Workshops
Quinta das Lavandas organizes regularly seminars and workshops on the culture of lavender and its applications in different areas: food, cosmetics, crafts and distillation of essential oils. Follow this activity Quinta das Lavandas on www.facebook.com/quintadaslavandas where its implementation and the timetable will be publicized.
