My sister, mother and me stayed for 5 nights, hired a car and toured the countryside. Wonderful house and garden - everything we could possible want was in the cupboards, a real home away from home. We had a very comfortable stay and spent the majority of the time on the terrace and around the pool - very refreshing first thing in the morning and again in the evening. BBQ was used a lot. Thick walls ensured a comfortable nights sleep as nice and cool. Only possible gripe was that the lighting inside the house was not good enough to read with, but the lamps and wall fittings made for a homely, cosy feel, and reading outside with the warmth of the sun on your skin was delightful. Thank you Caroline for letting us share your lovely property with magnificent views - just what my mum was looking for.
we enjoyed a fantastic time at Casa Quintinha and are delighted to recommend it to everyone. The house is lovely, is ideal for couples or for a family with plenty of room. The house is very welcoming, friendly and comfortable and has all the facilities of home while outside there a lovely exterior area for sitting to enjoy a drink or a meal from the bbq ~The countryside views are spectacular. There is a lovely large swimming pool, plenty of pool deck space for relaxing & sunbathing while below the pool deck are gardens. Splendid sunshine views of the countryside during the day while in the evening the lights from the many farms, house and small villages are brightly illuminated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the house.
5 minutes walk away there is a very friendly bar with a recently added restaurant where the food is delicious.
You are on holiday in the Portuguese countryside but within 20 minutes drive are all the main resorts & funspots of the Algarve...ideal !!!
we very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Quintinha
If you are looking for a place to totally unwind and relax then look no further. The villa is very homely, welcoming and well equipped with everything you need. There is a lovely terrace for alfresco dining and a perfect spot to sit beneath the olive tree sipping a glass of wine. The large pool is so inviting and there are ample comfortable sunbeds to accommodate a large party. We enjoyed several barbecues on the lower terrace and watched the sunset. A car is essential and this allows you to visit the wonderful beaches which are less than half an hour away. There are several restaurants within a short drive and Paula's Bar is within walking distance. We shopped at Lidl which was ten minutes from the villa although you can buy basics at Paula's. Looking forward to our next holiday at Casa Quintinha already!
What a place to stay, ...My wife, myself, our son & daughter in law stayed in Caroline's fabulous Farmhouse for just one week in September but when we walked in & saw it we wished we had booked for much longer, it is a tremendous house with every amenity you could imagine, there is spare everything .....sheets, towels, shower gel, shampoo, soap, creams, toothpaste, & even food & an abundance of cutlery, China & cooking utensils you name it it was there, the pool is wonderful & was well used so we had a magical holiday, what a pity we only stayed for just a week .....we would certainly recommend it to anyone & everyone it's a perfect place for a perfect holiday .....Thank you Caroline for having the perfect place to stay we certainly would love to come again, John, Laura, Gail & Ian xx
We returned for a full fortnight for our 5th visit to this peaceful haven – splitting it for a week as a couple & joined on the 2nd week by my teenage daughter. As previously, it was completely relaxing from the moment we walked down those steps to see the welcome view of the pool & out to the coast. This fabulous home from home now has wifi – a plus in my daughter’s books – and internet TV, not that we used it! The bathroom has also recently been done up to a very high standard.
The peaceful, rural, “away-from-it-all” location allows you to relax around the pool & recharge the batteries, which is exactly what I want in a holiday. The house is well equipped throughout and the beds are so comfy! However, if you do want to break up the day for a trip away, everything you need is easily reached by car including local shops/supermarkets. We visited some lovely fishing villages as well as the more touristy coastal resorts. “Paula’s” bar/restaurant is a welcome retreat in the evening at the end of the road and there is a wide selection of restaurants all within easy reach.
We love this place and will definitely be returning soon.

Oh what I would give to be back here now instead of the office!!!! This villa is truly beautiful. Quiet location but who needs to go anywhere when you have a pool like this. Everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. Myself. My husband and our 3 young children had the time of our lives here and really hope we can return soon. I would have no concerns recommending this villa to anyone. Caroline was very helpful & we are eternally grateful for a fantastic holiday xxxx
