Contact Frank at Quinta das Relvinhas We look forward to sharing our Vision with you!!!Road description to Quinta das Relvinhas Entering the town of Monchique you take the direction of the center and Lisboa. In the local centre take the direction of "Centro de Saude" untill the street divides (approx. 200 m after the fire brigade / Bombeiros). Turning left you find a small roundabout. There you go left in the direction of Foz de Farelo, Selao, Chilrao, it goes uphill a bit. Through winding lanes you get to a sign which leads you in the direction of "Barranco dos Pisoes". Now you need raised attention! Lefthand you see a row of houses, on the right is no cultivation / valley side, where the houses end up you find a high wall, there you go left in a sharp turn 180- You find a gas camp on the right. After approx. 200 m on the slightly rising street with cobblestones you reach a small hilltop, on the left you see a house with green tiles, here turn sharply right. It goes very precipitously up the hill! This branch could be overlooked quite easy, but turn right the first possibility. At the end of the row of houses you find a wall on the right, which is part of the property. After approx. 100 m you reach an iron gate. Here we are! If you cannot open the gate (opening bolt inside), just honk. Welcome to the Quinta das Relvinhas
