“Idyllic rural retreat in Algarve mountains”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We absolutely loved our stay at Quinta da Relva. The house is simple rustic in style, with a beautiful garden and stunning pool in a totally private setting. We arrived to find fresh flowers from the garden in each room and we felt relaxed and at home in the house from day one. The beds are very comfy and we all slept so well. There is plenty to do in the area with the west and south coast beaches just a drive away, lovely walks and cycling and some interesting towns to visit. Good simple restaurants closeby and all the amenities in nearby (but not walkable) Montchique. The owner is very helpful. We will definitely be going back.

“Warm welcom by Diana in his nice Quinta in the "april rainforest" of Monchique”
Reviewed 19 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Apart from the cool and wet april weather everything was ok and I recommend the stay in this Quinta.
Could be improved :
- Signpostings on the road to find easy he way to the Quinta when arriving from Monchique
- Quality of wifi (interruption and speed)
