Luxury hilltop private Villa



Updated: 27-Oct-2016
Outeiro, Ansiao - Quiet village location in extensive grounds

Standing proud at the top of the sleepy, picturesque, hilltop village that is Outeiro you'll find Quinta Das Eiras. It's imposing green gates the entrance to your own personal oasis spanning in excess of 6,000 square metres and including private pool with BBQ & al fresco seating / dining area, private badminton courts, private spa treatment room and countless flora and fauna. Wandering through our gardens we ask that you feel free to help yourself to the many fruits & herbs you will find, enjoy the warmth of the sun on your face as beautiful butterflies pass you by. You may even see our resident eagle perched majestically in the heights of our eucalyptus tree or see our curious partridge who'll often try to sneak up behind you when you're not looking!

Inside you'll love the space of our large lounge & dining room along with the facilities of our fully equipped kitchen. You'll also be spoiled with our three, spacious bedrooms and you'll adore the sumptuous dressing gowns and slippers provided with our compliments for use during your stay. There's even complimentary lavender sprays for your bedding to help you ease off into a great nights sleep. The welcome basket (boasting local produce from the area) is a gift from us to welcome you to your new home and a chance to sample the excellent fare on offer! You'll find selected spirits in the lounge which are also complimentary and for you to enjoy during your stay. Located in the kitchen you'll discover our bar offering you a selection of our own label wines, the prices of which are sent to you prior to your arrival. We know it's easy to forget the essentials so toiletries are included in all bathrooms and you'll smell divine with complimentary shower gel included as part of your holiday experience. The building is climate controlled throughout for your comfort and free wi-fi is available.

We're extremely proud of our unique Spa experience too - treatments are available for you to book prior to your arrival and will see you receiving specialist pampering from our therapist within the relaxing and private surroundings of our very own Spa Room! You'll find it located just a short stroll into the grounds and we'd be happy to put you in touch with our therapist prior to the start of your holiday to answer any questions you might have.

The villa is ideally located just a few minutes drive from several restaurants and cafe bars offering fresh, local produce at absolutely unbelievable prices. You're also on the doorstep of over 20 stunning walks which are detailed in our welcome booklet and, if you'd rather soak up the culture, there's an abundance of Roman ruins, castles, monuments and monasteries all within reasonable driving distance. Although inland you only have to travel 40 minutes to experience the magic of the almost deserted, crystal clear blue waters of Portugal's stunning Silver Coast - surely some of the most magical beaches that Europe has to offer.

Naturally it makes sense to explore the village first and, once you've met the neighbours, take a walk down to the wooden windmills of Outeiro, not only are they fascinating but the views from here are sensational! Of course you could just choose to spend your time around the pool and, with temperatures exceeding the mid forties in the summer season, who could blame you?

With dedicated agents living a short distance away they are always available to answer any issues you encounter, alternatively you can contact ourselves directly by email or phone and we'll be only too happy to assist you. We cannot stress the importance we put on your experience and will accept nothing less than perfection to give you and your family the holiday you so deserve.

We are able to offer airport & railway transfers to/from the villa as well as inclusive dining experiences including transportation to ensure no one has to be the driver. We can provide day itineraries & transportation to places of interest for up to 4 people. Want a daily maid or maybe a mid week turn down and clean? No problem! We believe that a self catering holiday should be flexible enough to offer these little extras if required - and we believe we're the first in the area to allow you to build your holiday in this way.

For your added protection and peace of mind, Quinta Das Eiras holds the AL - 'Alojamento Local' permit, which is a legal requirement in Portugal that ensures that regulatory standards are met, not only for health and safety but also your comfort and is issued by the local Camara (Town Hall),

We're very proud of the standard of accommodation & facilities offered at Quinta Das Eiras, and are pleased to have received 5 star feedback from all of our Trip Advisor reviews. Guest comment's include "A gem of a find", "thoroughly recommended for anyone who wants to escape the big city", "We particularly enjoyed the attention to detail that you normally do not find in your typical holiday rental", "we have booked many villas all over the world and this has been the cleanest yet", and "we were blown away by the beauty of the place."

We hope you're inspired to make an enquiry and we hope to welcome you to this "little of peace of heaven on earth" where you'll rediscover the pleasure of simplicity.

Under 45 minutes from the Silver Coast, under 2 hrs drive from Porto or Lisbon airports. Private pool & badminton court, Spa treatments, wi-fi, BBQ & al fresco dining areas, relaxation for all ages!

All bedrooms at Quinta Das Eiras bring you the up most in space and comfort. All of our bedding is 100% Egyptian Cotton with super thick towels that you won't want to put down! All are individually climate controlled with hot & cold a/c units and all feature our specially made lavender spray to help you drift off into a great night's sleep! There's ample storage space in all too!

The ground floor bedroom is ideal for persons of limited mobility and is conveniently located next to the house bathroom. It boasts a large double bed, huge fitted wardrobes, dressing table and bedside units as you would expect. It also has a large panoramic window with a door which can open to allow quick and convenient access to the outside of the property.

Ascending the solid marble staircase to your left you'll reach the 1st floor twin room. Once more with all the standards as listed above this room is incredibly bright and airy with a high ceiling to further enhance the feeling of openness. A door to the side opens onto a large sun terrace - easily large enough to enjoy a cocktail whilst the sun sets across the township of Ansiao in the distance. You'll get a birds eye view across the grounds of Quinta Das Eiras and much further still, and with all day sunshine it's one of the many ideal spots to relax, recline and soak up the atmosphere.

Across the corridor you'll find the 1st floor master bedroom with king size bed and it's own en-suite shower room. Again the high ceilings and crisp, white walls make this a lovely room (our personal favourite) and double doors lead out onto a covered balcony with patio seating that offers absolutely breathtaking views for many miles. Whether it's sitting here with a coffee in the morning whilst you peruse the news, or even to gaze across the vista as dusk turns into evening we promise you that you will never, ever tire of the view from here.

The master bathroom has everything you'll need such as a full sized walk in shower cubicle, WC, illuminated vanity unit and bidet.

Our Spa Room is situated within the private grounds of Quinta Das Eiras and is pre-bookable to offer you a range of therapies including Swedish Massage, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Reiki, Aromatherapy Massage and Thai Massage. Of course, if it's hot you may wish to transfer your treatment poolside - just ask our therapist who will be happy to oblige.

Our secure automated gated entrance provides car parking for several vehicles.

The crystal clear 8m x 4m outdoor pool is without a doubt our jewel in the crown and features a fully retractable fence to ensure little hands cannot gain access whilst your back is turned. It has gradual steps to the shallow end or traditional ladder steps to the deep end - ideal for both those who want to play and those who want to clock up the lengths! Both our barbecue area and outside seating are situated in such a way so that you'll always have full peripheral vision of the area.

Sun loungers feature poolside. You'll be pleased to hear that wi-fi is available poolside so you can remain in touch with the rest of the world, should you wish! Alternatively it's the perfect place to read away the chapters of your book - a quick dip in the pool to refresh followed by a rinse down thanks to the outdoor shower and you'll be instantly revitalised!

What could be better than a late afternoon spent sat underneath our outdoors seating / dining area accessible from the pool or via the retractable glass windows in the dining room? It's ideal for al fresco dining or just soaking up the Portuguese sun with a good read. Sink into one of our large wicker chairs or curl up on the sofa for an afternoon of sheer relaxation. For your comfort the entire area can be curtained off to provide shade or left open to allow you to bathe in sunlight. Automated outdoor lighting will ensure this is a space to be enjoyed at any time of the day or night. Our Sonos sound system will allow you to instantly connect the tablet so you can have your choice of music softly playing in the background too. It's ideal location means you can keep a constant eye on the pool area, as well as enjoying the fantastic views down the grounds, meandering past the Spa Room and beyond - as far as the eye can see.

A perfect, peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fantastic week at Quinta das Eiras. The villa was everything we had hoped for and more and our host, Louis was brilliant.

He should be extremely proud of the standard of accommodation and facilities offered – much care has clearly been taken to create the perfect holiday villa and the attention to detail is amazing. It really is a perfect mixture of rustic charm and modern day amenities and offered everything we could possibly want for our stay.

The photos really don't do it justice- the villa is beautifully furnished, airy, immaculately clean, and very comfortable; the grounds are amazing; the views are spectacular; and the pool and BBQ are just perfect – we thoroughly recommend barbecuing over pinecones! Great tip – thanks Paul!

We arrived to a welcome hamper of local cheese, olive oil, bread, jam, milk and fruit, local wines and complimentary spirits, as well as lovely bathroom toiletries, bathrobes and slippers – a lovely touch!

A perfect villa for families - we really enjoyed the long, hot summer days splashing about, coupled with days out to explore the beautiful countryside and historic sites. A truly relaxing and restful holiday– thank you!

Flights into Porto and Lisbon are operated by several airlines throughout the year.

The recommended option, is to fly into Lisbon either through EasyJet in the Spring/Summer months or with TAP (the national airline) all year round, book in advance and you'll find their fares similar or cheaper to the economy carriers - the difference being a generous baggage allowance, in flight meal, and the pleasure of not being sold something every ten minutes! We recommend Economy Car Hire(Rentauto) from
