Stunning Cottage with large private pool



Updated: 05-Sep-2016
Cottage and private pool near Alvor, Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 10 Mins from Beach at Alvor

Quinta Valverde offers complete peace and tranquility, yet is situated just 10 minutes from the lively fishing village of Alvor with its beach and restaurants. Situated in its own valley, this pretty cottage stand in 8 hectares of private land with spectacular views to the Monchique mountains. The traditional farmhouse opens out onto a large terrace which overlooks mature gardens. Steps lead you down to a bridge over the stream to the cottage by the large 12m pool. The pool is surrounded by tiled terracing and BBQ area.

Details for holiday cottage Cottage & Pool, 2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 4, 1 Bathroom

The cottage is a bright and airy building that leads out onto a terrace area with a large 12x5m pool. Set in the countryside, it's just far enough out of the main tourist areas to ensure complete peace and quiet, but close enough to be accessible to the beaches and busy restaurants. There's plenty of tracks out the back of the cottage for walks, and previous clients have reported spotting all sorts of animals including eagles and otters.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed La Quintia Verde beginning of September for a week. Hamish and Stephanie gave us a warm welcome and we're always on hand to answer any queries. The villa affords good holiday accommodation with a beautiful pool for those seeking total R&R and privacy . Ruby (their golden lab) adopted us as her new owners for the week and had we had an extra case we would have smuggled her home,You definitely need a car for this holiday as it is a short drive to Alvor. We will definitely be returning. Many thanks The Brays .

Quinta valverde

  • 5 of 5

We are family group of 10. The Quinta and cottage are set in glorious peaceful setting. We were particularly impressed with spacious pool area and beautiful large clear pool. The house is rustic, but spotless and very well equipped. Hamish, the owner is welcoming, helpful and friendly. We've been on many villa holidays and he's definitely our favourite host! A large welcoming pack of provisions was left for us too. You do need a car, but there are some lovely local restaurants few minutes drive away. We can recommend Amadeus garden and Al Tosca. It's a wonderful place for a relaxing family holiday and more authentic Portuguese experience. Thank you Hamish. The Walkers.
