Having booked on line after seeing the photos we were very excited to find the Quinta dos Sonhos even more stunning! we felt we had arrived in paradise, from the stunning house itself with immaculate furniture and cosy rooms with the most amazing views, and then there was the pool! This has got to be the best in the Algarve! the water is so soft and extremely clean starting of with a small paddling pool for infants then on to the infinity pool for serious swimming.
The seating area around the pool is sensational, beautiful dining table for up to 12 guests with an Weber BBQ with the possibility of a chef coming to the villa and providing you with delicious food! We also spent some days on the beach which is walking distance and quite beautiful, including amazing walks along rustic coastal paths. Plenty of local restaurants to choose from and a great local supermarket with fresh produce. We will definitely come back in the near future!
We had a fabulous stay at the Quinta dos Sonhos during August 2013. From the moment we arrived, met by Howard and his team, we felt well looked after, with a friendly touch, without being over intrusive.
The Villa itself was stunning, from the point we drove through the electric gates down the sweeping drive, through the large historical wooden front doors, the place was simply breath taking. Set in an elevated position, amongst 4 acres of landscaped gardens, we benefitted from beautiful views of the infinity pool, the football pitch, and the rolling hills down to the sea.
Inside, the villa consists of a large open plan dining room, with an adjacent open kitchen with its own table, which we used most of the time. Stepping out onto the elevated balcony, you find yourself faced with a BBQ, and outside dining table ideal for evening meals and chilling. Below the infinity pool beckons, surrounded by copious sunbeds and umbrellas.
There are two TV rooms with Sky TV and DVD players, allowing some time to chill in the evenings when needed, although we found ourselves out and about most of the time.
Downstairs you find 4 bedrooms of good size, with great comfortable beds and en suites.
Back at the front of the property, upstairs you find the master bedroom with large en suite, separate dressing room, and balcony with more sunbeds. The evening sunsets and early morning sunrise from the balcony are gorgeous.
I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here, with our two teenage sons and their girlfriends, with plenty more space available, you could certainly fit in two families if you wanted to.
Trips we did included shark fishing, quad biking, visiting Silves for the medieval festival, a boat trip through the caves, and plenty of wonderful restaurants.
Overall, i can't recommend this villa enough, combined with the service provided by Howard and the team, a fantastic holiday! Highly Recommended!
