Really nice and well kept villa set in lovely grounds. The pool is perfect for a villa of this size and the local town has several decent restaurant options within walking distance despite being small enough to feel very quiet and relaxed.
Our hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful, would gladly return in future.
This was our 3rd time to stay at Monte da Quinta and we've never returned anywhere else more than once so that says a lot about this special place. The property is great, it's kept really well and the attention to detail is just lovely - the fresh flower petals in the rooms on arrival is just a lovely touch. Wonderful welcome hamper which is enough for your first evening snack or breakfast. The pool and gardens are amazing and even in May we were swimming every day. Michaela & Nigel are wonderful hosts and can't help enough with recommendations of things to do or places to eat or visit. Monte da Quinta is an ideal spot for us as it's in a wonderful rural setting but only walking distance into a lovely town with some great and very reasonable restaurants. I'm sure we'll be back again...
Superb views in a quiet rural location but still within 10 mins walk of town and its excellent restaurants. A perfect centre for our birdwatching/visiting historic towns holiday. Little Owl, Azure Magpies, Bee-eaters and many others on site, with great views of Bustards, Harriers, Eagles etc in the local area. Michaela was an excellent host, offering helpful advice and information when asked. The facilities were comprehensive, with an extensive welcome hamper, all cleaning materials, towels etc. If you are looking for the real Portugal, away from the tourist beaches this area is the perfect answer.
This was my fourth visit here , the accommodation is of a very high standard, the surroundings are beautiful , it has a lovely pool and sun terrace. It's an easy walk to the local shops and restaurants, the supermarket is also within walking distance , I highly recommend this place , the owners are lovely and make sure you have a comfortable stay, I will most definitely be back .
Just the perfect place to relax and forget about the daily stresses of life! Such a warming welcome, everything possible thought of was provided and anything extra that we needed was solved by a trip to the nearby supermarket. Such comfortable accommodation, perfect friendly hosts, the just perfect quiet getaway. Restaurants and bars very cheap, good food, welcoming and friendly. Wouldn’t hesitate to return at anytime to just chill.
Another wonderful stay at Monte da Quinta, the quality is as good as ever and the hosts Michaela and Nigel extremely welcoming with every little convenience thought of and provided.
Some great trips to the Algarve and Atlantic coast this time including a visit to a pottery and artisan chocolate maker plus a favourite beach restaurant (Choupana) at Vila Nova de Milfontes.
Looking forward to the next visit!
September saw our 5th visit to Monte da Quinta and suffice to say we all had another fantastic time. A perfect combination of relaxation, great hospitality and sunshine. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a break away from it all.
