I've been on many a short break, both at home (UK) and abroad, but my stay at Quinta Colina Flora made this one of the very best. Of course the surroundings are superb with plenty to see and experience. The countryside and seascapes are wonderful and there are historical sites in abundance in the area. However, what made the stay at QCF so special for me was a combination of the peace and quiet, beautiful gardens and accommodation and excellent welcome by James, Aasta and their adorable dog. The hosts can't do enough for their guests, and their free shuttle service to local restaurants is very much appreciated. Aasta's fantastic culinary skills were also very much in evidence and appreciated at breakfast with the abundance of home cooked goodies and the most delicious muesli ever. A very big thank you to James, Aasta and Lucca the dog, for a very happy stay (30 Jan to 2 Feb) and a heartfelt recommendation to Trip Advisor readers to visit QCF; you won't regret it. (PS I have rated the fitness centre in error below - there is no fitness centre, so please will readers ignore and forgive this error).
