To get to the Quinta, there are various options:
1. Use your own car.
2. Fly to Lisbon, Faro, Madrid, Seville or Badajoz and hire a car.
3. Fly to Lisbon, Madrid or Seville and go on the coach to Vila Viçosa.
For the greater part there are excellent motorways connecting Lisbon, Faro, Madrid, Seville and Badajoz with Vila Viçosa except for the final 11 kms. For a detailed route description please use Google Maps.
If you arrive in Lisbon and decide to travel by coach, there is a fast shuttle service to Vila Viçosa or nearby Borba ( 2 hrs). A taxi will take you to the Quinta for the last stage of your journey. Taxis in Portugal are always available and inexpensive.
Guests arriving in Madrid or Seville and wishing to go on the coach to Vila Viçosa, can do so, but have to change coach at Badajoz for Borba. Next take a taxi.
