We spent a week at the Quinta for a combined birding / walking holiday. The quiet and peaceful setting of the Quinta and the view from our room was the basis for a week in paradise. Frank's knowledge of the area and birdlife along with that special talent for knowing exactly where to go to see certain birds is amazing. Some of the locations we visited were as quiet and peaceful as the Quinta itself. Our walking days provided us with some some spectacular views of the lake and the surrounding countryside. The evening meals produced by Daniella were delicious with a good selection of wines available too. Frank and Daniella and their family join you for dinner, along with the other guests, around a large table which makes for an enjoyable evening. We were made to feel extremely welcome by Frank and Daniella along with their family and the dogs and, last but not least, Harry the parrot. We will definitely be back again some time in the future for another week in paradise!
