BIRD WATCHING and NATURE WALKS
The size, location and maintenance of Quinta do Archino creates an ideal environment for a rich biodiversity of flora and birds. The sandy tracks may lead you to small woods of cork, pine and eucalyptus trees, or over wooden bridges and gentle hills, or into secret grassy meadows and old farm buildings, or to the natural lake which is a haven to the storks and ducks who nest nearby.
