We had a perfect week in the villa, it was well equipped and very comfortable and David and Jo made us feel very welcome. The grounds and surroundings are idyllic and very peaceful and it was very tempting to spend the week enjoying the pool rather than exploring the lovely area. A car is essential but there is lots to discover without having to drive too far. All in all a perfect retreat.
Nothing too much trouble
The owner, David, could not have been more helpful, on arrival we found our accommodation had been uprated due to a minor maintenance issue with the original cottage. Highly recommend the location and facilities available. Ideal for either a short or long stay with arrival and departure on the days you require.
From the Owner
“Having enjoyed holiday's on the Algarve for many years we fell in love with it's unique charm. With over 300 days of sunshine and friendly locals it is a fabulous location for any holiday. Quinta Palmeiras is peaceful and private yet ideally situated for the beaches, supermarkets, dining out, and all the things our guests like to do. We love it, and our guests love it too - well they keep coming back!!”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Most of our guests self-cater, hire a car, and come to totally chill with a good book, bottle of wine, and to top up their tans by the pool or down on the beach. Early in the year the area is very popular with golfers and we can organise a complete package which includes: mini-bus airport transfer, transport to the various courses, and breakfast and fine evening meals. Also very popular are our out of season ‘retreats’ which includes colour therapy and healing and relaxation techniques, and we also host an annual painter’s party for artists of all abilities. In each case the 5 day course is organised and run by a friend who is a very competent tutor

From the Owner
“Our little bit of paradise is centrally located only 10 minutes drive to the historic town and castle of Silves. Here there are first class restaurants, pavement cafes and bars, and excellent shopping facilities with a wonderful market selling organic fresh fruit, vegetables, meat & fish, which all goes to make the town a joy to explore. The beach of Armacao de Pera is only 15 minutes away, offering a good choice of bars and fish restaurants set on miles of golden sand, water sports, and sun beds. Close-by there are many stunning secluded 'secret' coves, ideal for chilling out with a good book, or just simply soaking up the sun for that perfect tan. The young at heart are less than 10 min drive from a fabulous water park, the fearless can tackle scary rides, gentler ones for the toddlers”
