    Discover the history of the Estate

    Vale do Manantio Estate was purchased by the Bravo family in 1968, due to the strong connection João Maria Bravo - the family patriarch, had with nature and hunting. As the owner, his first years were dedicated investing in placing native game species all across the Estate, such as the red partdrige and the rabbit, as way to give continuity to his dream.

    In Portugal, the story of the Bravo family goes back to the 18th century, where his members stood out as international market shipowners. The family owned seven caravels, and was responsible for shipping to several regions of Europe, Africa, and America. João Maria Bravo, the grandfather of the actual Estate manager, was one of the most renowned hunters in Portugal, mostly because of his dedication to preserve and defend this practice, having also written several books about it.
