This is the place to stay when you want a peaceful and authentic break/adventure in Portugal. There are so many things to do aside from just relaxing by the pool we need to go back again! Lots of outstanding beaches to visit, great traditional restaurants, areas of outstanding beauty, traditional villages, cycling, surfing but most of all you get a real sense of staying in another culture, which simply surrounds this fantastic farm house in every direction. The only challenge we found was dragging ourselves away from the house as it was so peaceful and felt like the world had overlooked us for a week! Perhaps to say we are going to return says enough!
This was our 3rd trip to Quinta da Relva and we are already planning to go back again next year! The kids absolutely love it as they are free to roam the terraces, play in the pool and the beach is just a 40 min drive away!
The house is beautifully presented and the garden is wonderful - you can tell this place is really loved.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful quinta with us!

we had wonderful days in this beautiful mountain villa. The pool was too cold for swimming in this time of year, but we still had better weather than expected. from the house you can wonderful hiking. the south and west coast can be reached in about 30 minutes by car. our favorite beach was that of Alvor, which is very child friendly. the most beautiful place for us was Lagos. great lanes, great food and a harbor from which you can make good boat trips. In the evening our house offered us a barbecue and a large cozy fireplace. the housekeeper was very careful, keeping everything in order and not bothering at all. on foot, the restaurant "a Rampa" can be reached in 15 minutes. good and very cheap food. great service and excellent Frango Piri-Piri. All in all, we had wonderful days. Thanks Diana and hopefully see you soon. sorry for my bad English.
Every time we visit Quinta da Relva, we never want to leave. The house is full of character, and the natural surroundings make it a really peaceful environment. It is a luxury to choose between a swim in the pool or a swim in the ocean, and the fruit from the trees in the garden are the best way to start the day. Thank you Diana and see you next year!
We had a fabulous week at the Quinta.
It's a stunning location and we really felt relaxed there after a busy year. Our children (8 and 5) were enthralled with the lizards, bats and assortment of unusual bug in the terraces....and the pool of course. I'd love to go back again next year but for a longer stay. I'm not sure that I'd be able to stay away if I were the owner!
