This 287 hectares estate is a centuries old farm, located in the northeast of Portugal, in the region of Trás-os-Montes. It is crossed by two streams and has a set of buildings that were built over a period of years. It has 90 hectares of olive trees, 37 hectares of which is a new olive grove.
A new processing unit for the continuous extraction of olive oil as well as equipment for bottling and labelling was installed. The Azeite Centenario de Primeira Colheita of Quinta de São Miguel do Seixo is produced and bottled in this new olive press and has become known nationally and internationally, having won prizes in recognised competitions. The Estate also has timber and cork. The property is a hunting sanctuary and as such various local species of fauna have been re-introduced. The disposition of the sun, nature of the soil and available area has permitted an outstanding olive oil production as well as providing the potential for wine production amongst others crops.
The main house is centrally located and will be restored whilst maintaining the original historical characteristics. The remaining buildings are in typical rural Transmontana style which have slate masonry as well as visible granite stonework, hardwood window frames and slanting roofs but can be converted into units for rural tourist letting. Projects for 3 of the buildings have already been approved.
One hour and a half from Porto airport the region has a landscape of rare beauty with its land rich not only in vines but also cereals, cattle, vegetables and fruits.
