Moinhos do Dão – Eco Quinta is a historic mill complex on the banks of Dão river surrounded by oak, chestnut and pine forests. Our focus is on living in harmony with nature and this plays a key role in the way the quinta is managed and the activities we develop. The experience of living in a connection with nature at Moinhos do Dão is what we want to make available to our guests, residents, volunteers and our local community.
We run a small eco-toursim business, a residency program for artists and ecologists, organize activities such as hiking weeks, writing workshops and yoga sessions and started an environmental initiative called CuidaDão to protect and celebrate nature in the Dão valley.
Our main areas of interest and focus are:
Art & Crafts ~ Environmental Education ~ Permaculture (growing and sharing food) ~ Hiking
