Quinta de Gatão

Quinta de Gatão is situated in the North of Portugal, about 10km from Penafiel and 18km from the River Douro and Amarante. It is geographically in the centre of a triangle of three World Heritage sites, around half an hour by motorway from Oporto and Guimarães and an hour from the Douro Wine Valley. Quinta de Gatão, is an agritourism property comprised of a Manor House with three double bedrooms for tourists and its outhouses that have been converted into four small autonomous cottages, which form a common interior patio. In front of the Manor House there is a wide stretch of lawn, interrupted by the Chapel and the private swimming pool for tourists. You can play tennis and go for walks, bicycle rides or horse rides. Paintball tournaments, Jeep rides or boat rides can be organised.The farm stretches for over 20 hectares, enabling those who are not masters of the art of horse riding to go for small, guided rides with support. For the other riders the itineraries used go beyond the walled perimeter of the farm, sometimes as far as one hundred kilometres, keeping to unpaved paths, in the forest, with fantastic landscapes. A Guide responsible for the outings always accompanies any horse riders and also gives riding lessons in the arena to any tourists wanting them. For riders wishing to observe the monuments of the Romanesque Route and enjoy the local cuisine, specific equestrian programmes and itineraries are organised.
