Upon arrival we were greeted by two very friendly dogs on the lovely path leading to "Reception". The view of the lake through the gardens was breathtaking. My room with a little porch was simple, clean, comfortable and quiet with that same beautiful view. The dinners were delicious and served at a large table, beautifully appointed with sparkling glasses, silver,...

Sometimes you come across somewhere quite unexpectedly lovely. It might be that the location is very special and the buildings and environment take maximum advantage of the natural splendour to turn it into a wonderful setting for a holiday. Or it may be that the people are brilliant at their job as hosts and their skill and expertise really enhances...

A wonderful week spent at the Quinta. The best place I can imagine to recharge life’s batteries and have really special birding experiences. Frank and Daniela have got it just right with a perfect balance of convivial wholesomeness in a very beautiful setting of luscious terraced gardens leading down to the expansive lake below, and comfortable rooms each with their...

I flew out from UK for a week's stay and couldn't believe how peaceful the quinta and the whole area was. Take some good books (there's also a very good little library and books in all the rooms) and enjoy the terraced gardens, still colourful at the end of September and full of insect life including lizards and geckos. As...

This will not be everyone's type of place, but it is mine. Even for non-bird lovers, the setting and the hospitality should bowl you over. This is not a five star hotel with five star amenities but it is a five star experience. The food is good but not memorable, but you will enjoy hugely the sociable meals and company....

Such an idyllic location, total peace and quiet. We decided to go just for lunch, as we were touring the area. Buffet was disappointing, sausages, rosti potato and salad items, followed by fresh fruit salad......really not blown away at €15 a head!! Maybe it's better on some days? Expected better than this!

FMFAlentejo, Owner at Quinta do Barranco da Estrada, responded to this review

Such a pity to receive a review like this. We're not a restaurant, but somewhere to stay which offers food to our guests. However, when you four turned up hungry out of the blue and asked for lunch, what were we to do? Even though you had no reservation to stay, (and were certainly not invited), were we expected to...

Unique location and unique people. You can not explain what Frank (the owner) has done with the place. You must go and see for yourself and be amazed. Accomodation, service, food (breakfast and lunch), even all other guests were perfect. If you love nature, birds, water, tranquility and do not mind having dinner with a group of guests and the...

Our family had a mega time here. I wasn't overly excited about going as I prefer the sea to a lake. But this was a fabulous surprise! Everyone of the 5 of us had a ball. The food was fabulous and they were able to cater for vegetarian and gluten free despite being quite remotely located. Frank & Daniela and...
