About Ruth E Mason

My name is Ruth Mason and my parents purchased Quinta Mimosa in the late 1970s. Ownership has now been handed down to the next generation and it is our holiday home. All ages enjoy Quinta Mimosa from the very young, teenagers to the more sedate.

Although Portugal has altered greatly over the past 30 years, the magic which is Portugal has not and the Mason Family young and old still love it as much as today as we did when we first arrived all those years ago.

Primarily this is our holiday home and we hope all our guests, and we have had many over the years, enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

At Quinta Mimosa you can either "lock the doors" and just soak up the atmosphere requiring only good company, a swim, food and drink or venture down to Praia da Luz or Lagos for restaurants, shops and people. At the end of the day however, you always return to your own piece of Portugal, self contained and yours for your stay.


Very Good! 4.1/5 -

the perfect holiday for all ages

  • 5 of 5

Quinta Mimosa is a perfect family holiday villa for all ages - it is large and roomy with a playroom for teenagers and younger children - there is also an attractive central courtyard for the serious sun worshippers! The house has all mod cons with large terraces and areas for barbecuing. The icing on the cake is the beautiful gardens with lawns and terraces - completely private with areas to just sit and read if you wish or alternatively lounge around the pool which has its own bar and seating area with a fridge. The village is a short walk away with a very well stocked supermarket and many restaurants and bars. In all it is an idyllic place just to relax and enjoy the setting and amenities

we have been there many times and hopefully will return again in the not too distant future.!

the perfect holiday for all ages

  • 4 of 5

Quinta Mimosa offers the ideal holiday for families - the outstanding gardens are extremely spacious and are not overlooked and very well maintained, with a large heated pool and different areas in which to barbecue or merely sit and enjoy the view and peacefulness.The house is very attractive being large and roomy with all mod cons, and a play room for children and teenagers,also an open interior courtyard if you really wish to catch the sun!. It is a short walk to the nearest supermarket - which is very well stocked. The local village offers many choices of restaurants and bars. Our holiday was perfect and we would highly recommend Quinta Mimosa, we have been there many times and look forward to going back again.

Fabulous as ever

  • 5 of 5

There's nowhere quite like Quinta Mimosa. Every time we stay we marvel at how such a spacious villa can be hidden in the middle of a village, near to shops and the beach, but still have that stunning view of the sea with not one house to be seen. The villa is a proper home from home, lots of activities, tv, games room, puzzles, chess - and usually a selection of inflatables and outdoor games left by previous visitors. The gardens are really lovely and full of birds. And my favourite thing - there is NOTHING better than opening up the shutters in the morning, lying in bed with a book and a cup of tea, looking through the beautiful gardens to the sea ... bliss.

Just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed we were with the villa – there was 8 of us and the villa was such a nice size that you never felt under each other’s feet. Usually when you see photos of accommodation it never quite lives up to your expectations however, it was the complete opposite with Villa Mimosa the photos just did not do it justice, it is beautiful with views and garden to die for.

Hope to go back again soon, even though we have been to the area 6 times this is by far the best villa we have stayed in.

Lovely! Unpretentious Family Villa!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Quinta Mimosa many times over the years with family and friends and every time we arrive back there we just know why we keep returning! The villa has everything you want for a family holiday or getaway with friends! We all love cooking and having BBQs on the terrace and the villa has a lovely big kitchen that's very well equipped for those who want to cook up a feast! Plenty of storage and two really big fridges - one of which dispensed ice cubes - perfect for the 'sun-downers' before supper! The local supermarket was perfect for our needs - just a short stroll on foot or a few minutes in the car and they and even delivered our basic, pre-ordered, arrival groceries - which was great! The open-plan living accommodation has a lovely big dining table and lots of comfortable seating for convivial times after sun-down or post-lunch siestas! The bedrooms are all ensuite and charmingly decorated. A morning swim, before breakfast on the top terrace - which looks out to the sea - is just the best start to the day for us! The garden is very obviously greatly loved by the owners, as it's beautifully maintained and, in summer when we've stayed, has been very colourful. Many times we have enjoyed an early evening walk down, and then along the beach, stopping for a drink in Luz itself on the way back! We love this villa because we instantly feel relaxed, and very comfortable in what we call a home away from home, only better! And, more often than not, in the sun!! Already looking forward to our 2014 visit!

Quinta Mimosa

  • 4 of 5

This is one of the most wonderful villas we have stayed in the Algarve. It is very large indeed and we felt that we were in a family home with a games room (pool/darts/football etc.) all available to us. We were told that the pool would be set to 30 degrees and it was which was wonderful for swimming. Plenty of places to get away and be private if one needed it in the lovely garden. A wonderful covered terrace with plenty of chairs and three possible eating areas depending on the weather. We would certainly go back to Quinta Mimosa again.
