Set in beautifully scenic countryside in Carrazedo de Montenegro near the Padrela mountains, the Quinta d'Alagoa is spread over 70 hectares (about 170 acres) of farm and woodland. Chestnut, olive and vine are the main crops.
All produce is organically grown and certified by SOCERT, the Portuguese Organic Quality Control entity. Amidst fields and woods, the farm buildings of unusual historical and cultural value are an excellent example of rustic architecture.
The old farmhouse, labourers lodgings, barn and other outhouses have been restored and adapted for agrotourism. The farm is a member of TER (Turismo no Espaço Rural – Rural Tourism Association).
