Don't lose heart as you approach the Quinta through the usual sprawl of red tiled holiday homes. Once the mighty doors through the Cyclopean walls close behind you, you are in another world. The mood is tranquil. Fatima, her husband and Elizabeth are delightful. Once a week Fatima cooks an excellent dinner. The grounds are extensive enough to hide a swimming pool and a tennis court, Amoroso nearby has a beautiful beach. The breakfast in the handsome old winery is top rate .... and the linen is embroidered with the ducal family arms!
My only quibble is that the beds were a little hard.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This manor house was built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Cunha Lobo Barbosa and Sottomayor family just 1 km from the sea. In 1820, the Genoese Judge Luigi Vital Monteverdi married the owner of the estate and the house became to be known as Quinta do Monteverde. The manor house was completely renovated but the interior retains the touch of the seventeen hundreds. Quinta de Monteverde is a walled estate between the hills and the sea and close to the river mouth. In Castelo do Neiva, the sandy beach rolls on and on; sand dunes and unspoilt stretches lend a wonderful sense of isolation to the surroundings. ... more less
