About us



This beautiful Quinta is located at the foot of the Serra Peneda-Gerês Park, in the old and picturesque village of Albergaria de Sá, 12 kilometers from the center of Monção and 10 kilometers from the center of Melgaço.

In the middle of the 18th century, a man by the name of António Luís Marques lived in a house located at the bottom of Quinta de Albergaria de Sá registered under the name Eido de Santa Lúcia and on the edge of an old Roman path. It was in this house that the so-called money changer pursued his business and, judging by the traces that remain of the same, he should have been a person with a high standard of living for the time. The money changer often went to Spain on business and took his only son with him, also called António Luís Marques. On all these trips, our visitors stayed at a Quinta whose overseer had several daughters. Among them, Maria Antónia Nóvoas was distinguished, not only because she was always the one who attended the two Portuguese, but also for the affection and attention she devoted to them.


The main building of the Quinta, from the 19th century, has been restored with all the original features preserved, as well as several rustic outbuildings that have been appropriately converted into 6 apartments for the privacy and comfort of our guests.

Unfortunately, we cannot be flexible with check-out. Our check-out time, particularly with the additional issues of cleaning spaces, has to be met, and it is 11 am. To leave at the end of the afternoon, we would have to charge an additional night as it would be impossible to lend the space the next night.

This restriction does not apply when the farm is rented entirely by a group.
