Wine tasting and swimming in natural pools
The winery QUINTA DO BARBUSANO, LDA., Is located on the north coast of the island. The vineyards with white and blue vine varieties are at different altitudes on the slopes of the São Vicente valley. But the most important for the local winery is the white variety Verdelho. The north-west coast also offers the town of Seixal, where there are natural pools for swimming lovers.
The terraces of the vineyards are set in the beautiful scenery of the valley, at the end of which lies the town of São Vicente.
To the north, the valley is enclosed by a wall of mountains and the saddle of Encumeada, which is the starting point for many nice tours.
The winery has a „showroom“ for individuals and groups, in which we also attended a tasting of very nice and interesting wines.
São Vicente Valley
The view of the valley and the mountains with a glass of good wine is a pleasant experience.
At the very end of the valley is a pebble beach.
We continue along the coast west to the town of Seixal.
The Seixal is an ideal place to stroll the narrow paths and alleys overlooking the ocean and the distinctive old houses surrounded by vines.
Time has stopped in some places. The original owners may have gone to Funchal or beyond, and nature is taking back what was taken from her.
We close the tour of Seixal really pleasantly. We enjoy swimming in salt water, in the protected pools of the natural tidal swimming pool.
