“Great location for hiking”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

The quinta is a great location for a walking holiday in the Algarve. A hire car is a must (arranged by Julio), but there are many interesting walking areas within a relatively short drive. Also the coast and interesting towns for sight seeing are also easily accessible. Lagos is only a short drive away and is a great town for a night out. Jill and Julio are very welcoming and helpful and the food is excellent. Will be returning, hopefully when it is a little cooler to do some of the longer walks that we wimped out on as the temperature increased.

Room Tip: We stayed in 'Oleander' which was really suitable for a couple on a walking holiday because...

This is a great little find. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Quinta in late February. Jill and Julio could not have been better hosts. From ensuring we were well stocked with logs for our cosy wood burning stove to providing fresh eggs from their chickens for breakfast and providing home cooked meals and fine wine. Julio booked our hire car which we picked up at the airport and used on our excellent daily walks in the mountains and coast. A lovely February escape from the British winter. Must go back in the spring/summer when we can try out the pool, jacuzzi and outdoor lounge. Have no hesitation in recommending.

A lovely place to get away from it all yet with plenty to do nearby if you want to get out and go walking/bird watching/sight seeing or simply relax on a beach. A rustic converted farmhouse setting with apartments, pool, and jacuzzi. Jill and Julio are the hosts who do a wonderful job of making your stay relaxing and are on hand for anything you need at all - all you need to do is ask and they seem to go that extra mile to help. Great communal dining and it's lovely to meet new people in such a friendly atmosphere. Easy to get into Lagos if you want shops and more town options. Would return without hesitation.

A holiday at Jill & Julio's has been a regular feature in our holiday plans over the past six years or so. The location & atmosphere, relaxed & friendly, suits us down to the ground & each return takes takes us back among friends.There is a wide variety of scenery within a short distance, coastal, country, & hills, & one of the highlights is returning on the evenings when Jill cooks & enjoying the company of those around the table. We've had some very entertaining, & long, evenings in interesting company at these times. Jill & Julio have always been most helpful, particularly when we were caught up with volcanic ash problems some years ago. They are always prepared to share their knowledge of the area, whether it be walks places to eat or to visit, when asked. The Quinta offers a truly distinctive holiday.

Room Tip: We go with friends & so take one of the apartments which are roomy & comfortable.

We spent a week at this location and were tipped by friends. This really is a great spot. It is located in a nice area for walks alongside the coasts or just relaxing on the beaches. Jill and Julio were great hosts making sure everything was fine. We enjoyed the breakfasts with the bacon and egg and also the two diners with the other guests. Jill and Julio gave us lots of information on good restaurants and great walks. All in all a very recommended location for a stay in the Algarve.

This holiday was one of our best. Heather and I were made very welcome by Jill and Julio and we quickly felt at home in their lovely Quinta. We had a great room, very spacious, with plenty of room on the veranda for enjoying a leisurely breakfast.

We went hoping for a comfortable place to stay for a weeks walking and seeing the spring flowers in the Algarve. We were not disappointed. The flowers were wonderful. On all our walks we saw many flowers that were new to us.

The gardens of the old farmhouse were delightful and good place to relax. On hot days we enjoyed the swimming pool in the late afternoon.

What was also special were Jill and Julio’s evening meals that they put on two or three times a week for the guests to share around a large table. The friendliness of everyone really made the holiday. We were able to get to know the others staying there and chat about our days sight-seeing.

Jill gave us good advice on eating places and which areas to visit. We found the Quinta was in a very good location. Set in quiet countryside, yet a few minutes drive into Lagos and easy access to lovely beaches and cliff walks, the western coast or up to Monchique.
