OWNER AND AGENT OF ONE, TWO AND THREE BEDROOM VILLAS ON THE QUINTA DA SAUDADE

The Quinta da Saudade is a small British-run estate of privately-owned villas occupying approximately twenty-four acres about five miles west of Albufeira. Nestling in the peaceful country setting of an old hillside farm estate and set amid orange, almond and olive trees, the Quinta is about forty-five minutes drive from the Airport at Faro. The nearest beach, less than two miles away, is a magnificent long stretch of sand, bounded by dunes, where it is always possible to escape the crowds, even in August. There are two swimming pools, a children’s play area and pool, tennis court, restaurant and bar, mini-golf course, table tennis and petanque. The Riding Stables at the Quinta have some fabulous horses that are available for gallops across the dunes or slow hacks through the countryside. There are attractive country walks in the vicinity and there is a wetlands nature reserve nearby with a wealth of bird and plant life not commonly found in the UK. Purple Heron, Little Bittern, Alpine Swift, Bee Eater, Red Necked Night Jar, Azure Winged Magpie and more. Casa Redonda is situated slightly away from the main group of villas. The villa is air-conditioned throughout. The villa is for two people but an extra bed or cot can be put in for a child or baby.

About Melanie Condon

I first visited the Algarve as a young child in 1965 and haven’t stopped spending my holidays there. I spent several happy years during the eighties running my own business and therefore have an extensive knowledge of the Central Algarve. I absolutely love Portugal and its wonderful people and want you to find it as magical a place as I have done over the years.

I have a web site with many other properties to suit all budgets. You will find properties with private pools, properties with shared pools, properties with tennis courts and even properties with riding stables.

To find you the perfect property, please email me or indeed pick up the telephone and let us discuss your

requirements.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Melanie Condon purchased this villa in 1970

Why Melanie Condon chose Albufeira

I have been visiting the Quinta da Saudade since 1965 and I visit every year. It is a very special place. It is run by the wonderful Fernando who has been there sine 1964. The beauty of the Quinta is that nothing ever changes. Yes, it is, of course, maintained, but the cobbles and outbuildings remain as they were when we visited in 1965. As soon as you pass through the famous palm trees at the entrance, you feel at home. It is a truly magical place.

What makes this villa unique

The Quinta da Saudade is a magical destination for your holiday. I always believe that if the children are happy, then you are free to enjoy your holiday, knowing that they are occupied and having fun. With two swimming pools, a tennis court, riding stables and table tennis table, the children are always occupied.

The Quinta is also a romantic getaway. The top pool is usually very quiet and you can read or snooze in total peace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highly recommended. A home from home.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Redonda is clean, comfortable and very well equipped with everything you could need to enjoy your holiday. Beautiful, very private, villa and gardens on the Quinta which has a high standard of facilities, pools, restaurant, bar and stables. Ideally located near some beautiful beach coves where you can sit and watch the fishermen come in. I highly recommend this villa and the Quinta to anyone wanting a quiet and peaceful base for their holiday.

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I've lost count of the number of times we have stayed at Casa Redonda - about 11 I think - but the attraction is still as strong. Its the perfect setting, quiet, lovely garden to relax in, a real home-from-home. Easy to reach lovely beaches, restaurants, supermarkets. You really need a hire car to make the most of the area but its an easy drive from Faro airport. We hope to be back.

Had a lovely relaxing break the villa had everything we required , the area was very scenic and shops and restaurants close by.

The evenings were a bit chilly but was expected due to time of the year , but the wood burning stove certainly kept us toasty warm and looked lovely when lit.

Would return to villa but later on in the year .

Casa Redonda

  • 5 of 5

Casa Redonda was for us like a little paradise in the calm and typical Portuguese Quinta Da Saudade.

We enjoyed the lovely swimming pools just a two minutes walk and the garden for lunch or cofffee. The horses at the stables were an absolute treat for our daughter. The Casa is very charming and nicely decorated to make you feel at home instantly. And you can spend your evenings in near the fireplace reading one of the interesting books about the surroundings and its nature.

For some sunbathing there are plenty of small beaches nearby with good restaurants to eat. The restaurant at the Quinta was not opened when we were there but we heard good reviews.

To go short, the perfect place for a charming Portugese holiday!
