We had a great three days at the quinta of Rob and Juliet who provided everything we could wish for including olive oil from their own olive groves. The self-contained rental house (one of three) on their huge quinta had everything we needed. A comfortable bedroom with ensuite shower room; a large sitting room and very well equipped kitchen. Outside there is a nice terrace with views over their extensive property which boasts a huge swimming pool, olive groves and grape vines, orange and lemon trees. This area is in the quieter part of Portugal and is a welcome break from the touristy coastal resorts - clean air, good climate and friendly people. Rob and Juliet live on site and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The surrounding area has lovely restaurants serving traditional food and lovely local wines - we were particularly impressed with the wine from the nearby Dao region.
Overall this was a great break and we would surely return.
