Only 25 km from Vila Nova de Milfontes beach, Figueirinha Ecoturismo is a place of absolute tranquility in a valley settled among oak and olive trees. Here its easy to wander between land and sea, between sand and fields covered with ferns and rockrose flowers.

After our oasis in Alentejo, we crossed half of the Atlantic to settle ourselves on the beautiful island of São Miguel (Azores, Portugal). Visit our house, at the north-east side of São Miguel.

“Histórias à Sombra do Montado” wins Figueirinha Nature Award 2023


Figueirinha Ecoturismo awarded Rita Gonzalez and Hugo Tornelo, coordinators of the “Histórias à Sombra do Montado” project, the Figueirinha Nature Award 2023.  Inspired by the popular saying “who cares about their grandchildren plants a cork oak”, this graphic novel project calls attention to the importance of preserving the cork oak forest as a true reserve of natural biodiversity. The stories were written by Ana Bárbara Pedrosa, Ana Margarida de Carvalho, Afonso Cruz and Luís Afonso, and designed by Joana Afonso, João Maio Pinto, Marta Teives and Nuno Saraiva, with graphic design by Rui Santos. 


The stories are available for free download on the website: www.historiasasombradomontado.pt





The search for sustainability is a work in progress at Figueirinha Ecoturismo. The green vegetable garden growing free of chemicals, the biological swimming pool, the compost and the solar power are the first steps on the pursuit of life that respects nature and defends the environment.

The access to the property and the garden is through a wrought iron gate designed by a friend of the family (Mário). On the right side, facing south is the century-old house where the owners of the hill live and where the family room is.


A community kitchen was built around the ancient wooden oven, where in the old days people from the valley used to bake bread. Whoever then the Portuguese to develop human relationships around a great plate of food?


We grow a biological vegetable garden for our own consumption. Cabbages, tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, leaks, beets, onions, courgettes are a few examples of what we have in our land, depending of course on the season.


Located only 25 km from Vila Nova de Milfontes and from Vicentina Coast, Figueirinha Ecoturismo is part of Odemira region and Relíquias administration. The closest village, Monte da Estrada, is distant 2.8 km on a dirt road.

"The memories we made here will be cherished in our family forever! This was a wonderful paradise for us. We will be back for sure. Thank you for all the wonderful food and talks. Love always"

Hiking Trails

Among cork and olive trees we have marked two walking trails to discover this still pure and beautiful landscape. Also Rota Vicentina Association has marked a hiking trail that one can choose from 6, 8 to 13 km that leads to the hill where a small chapel calls for worship to Nª Senhora das Neves. Here one can have a magnificent view from 277 meters high. In São Luís (12 km) the hikers can catch the Historical Path and in Vila Nova de Milfontes (25 km) the Fishermens Trail, both part of the hiking trails also developed by the association.

Horse Riding

Monte da Barbanxa only 2 km from São Luís and 10 km from Figueirinha Ecoturismo, offer several experiences even to the less experienced. Rides, advanced riding lessons, therapeutic riding and pony lessons for the smaller crowd. If you wish we can help you organize your visit.


Besides the walking trails marked by Figueirinha Ecoturismo that can be also be done by bike, there are a number of dirt roads that one can use to discover the region. For those who prefer a bigger challenge we recommend Rota Vicentina off road cycling trails, one of which has a higher degree of difficulty and goes by our rural tourism, where one can also find a Bike Station, and through Nª Senhora das Neves.

Canoeing down river Mira

Canoeing or kayak down river Mira is an experience not to be missed for those who are visiting the SW of Portugal. Ecotrails and Figueirinha Ecoturismo invite you to come and visit the tranquil waters of the Mira, experience its biodiversity and discover the different scenarios that vary according to the tides. From the river estuary in Vila Nova de Milfontes to Odemira or Casa Branca, an old wheat shipment wharf.
