Driving to Us?
When you arrive at the village of Vila do Mato turn left at Finata Cafe on the corner (coming from the Tabua direction).
Drive into the village, past the Agri-brito shop on the left side, and go straight over the offset cross roads down a narrow road called Rua Gravito, which becomes a good dirt road after 100m. This track is not a problem for any car. Carry on this track for another 1km until you see a big Eucalyptus tree in front of you in the road and carry on straight down the hill.
This grey dirt road is the start of Quinta do Rabacal.
