About the Owner
I am an IT consultant and Linda is a nurse working for the NHS.
We both share a love of the Algarve and have been bringing the children here for the last 20 years.
They now holiday here on their own also and with their friends.
The place is so friendly and homely that many people return regularly.
From the Owner
“We have been visiting this resort for 20 years and decided to buy a villa in 2005. We bought the villa with the intention of modernising it to a very high standard whilst retaining the character of the property. We fully renovated the villa in 2006 We holiday here whenever possible. Most of the guests return yearly and our villa is ofter requested first due to the high standard of refurbishment. Cliff Richard's vineyard is located nearby. There is easy access to main roads and motorways but far enough to be tranquil and peaceful.”

From the Owner
“There are discounts for various golf resorts which can be obtained from the office however most golf clubs are offering huge discounts this year to everyone. The weather at the Quinta is generally sunny due to the location in the Algarve being directly south of the mountains and on the coast at Praia Grande where the sand dunes and lake are virtually unspoiled by the rise of tourism to the area. There are numerous fruit trees which bare fruit throughout the year and all freely available to guests. There are horse riding stables on the site where lessons and treks across the dunes can be obtained at reasonable rates.”
