We stayed at Quinta Vale de Marmelos for four days last October, and had a very pleasant and restful holiday - so much so that we returned this Easter. Tim and Ann are attentive and thoughtful hosts, and one can enjoy the peace and quiet of being left to one's own devices (sunbathing on the third-floor terrace or swimming in the outdoor pool) or stroll in the extensive nursery garden and orchards. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking in spring and autumn, and the variety of wildlife astonishing.
An excellent breakfast spread - the eggs and oranges coming straight from the garden - and extremely clean and attractive rooms. It's a short drive to the nearby towns of Elvas and Estremoz, which have particularly good local restaurants.
With thanks to Tim and Ann; we'd certainly recommend Quinta Vale.
