Aug 2022 The Quinta is an absolutely amazing place for a stay for a relaxing holiday. It is further away from the coast, but it is easy to get to one of the most gorgeous beaches in a 30 min car ride and the tranquility and perfection of the place compensates for the distance. We had the most fantastic time and it was so good that it was sometimes really difficult to convince ourselves to leave the villa and explore the beauties of Algarve. Everything is really spacious and relaxing, kitchen is fully equipped (apart from dishwashing liquid/tablets), bathrooms are clean and functioned perfectly well. We liked the pool the most that is absolutely gorgeous, as well as the outside terrace area was well-used by us. It was just lovely to set the large table with the Portuguese pottery and have a nice diner and watch the lovely sunset behind the pool.
Aug 2022 It was a very nice place with lots of privacy. Further away from all the hustle and bustle in a beautiful setting. But still very centrally located! We found it delicious. Everything you need was there!
July 2022 - Our stay in the villa was absolutely fantastic. The big pool, the beautiful views and the villa itself having a very homely feeling: we couldn’t have imagined it any better. Everything was clean and neat, and Susie was a great host. She always answered our questions quickly and was very helpful. I definitely recommend staying here. You will have an amazing time!
