House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Quinta da Colina is situated in the affuent area of Gale in an area called Patroves and is convenient to Albufeira and Guia. The area is home to some of the Algarve's most beautiful beaches. With panoramic sea-views and countryside views, our resort enjoys a beautiful hill-top location with acres of space.
We have two distinct zones in Colina. One is for young families with all houses extremely well equipped for babies and upwards. The second zone is a completely separate terrace which is dedicated for older travellers who prefer a quieter setting.
The views from Quinta da Colina are breath-taking and we have a huge amount of space which is sure to ensure that you will always be able to relax in peace and quiet if that's what you're after.
Over the coming years we are going to turn our land into a private paradise; the kind of place that kids will remember forever. It'll be like no other, with private walks, gazebos, play areas and interesting little nooks and crannies. For the moment, you'll have to satisfy yourself with the finest quality houses built in the Algarve complete with an amazing pool area with nearby play area for children.
We have one, detached and private four bedroom villa and twenty very large, luxurious two bedroom / three bathroom homes which can comfortably accomodate up to six adults (but ideally four).
Every room is a very generous size, and you will not believe the quality of construction and finish. It's spectacular.
We provide generous surface and underground car parking, whichever is your preference.
As with Fonte Verde, we will equip ten of our homes in one distinct area of the resort, to be absolutely baby-friendly, child-friendly and family-friendly. It's something we do really well.
Our ambition, as always, is to allow Mum and Dad sit down and finish that cup of coffee or glass of wine, without plunging into mad panic, because a child may have escaped!
A second disctinct area is reserved and will cater for older families and executive guests.
There are many amenities nearby from coffee shops & great restaurants to beaches, waterparks, Zoomarine, Golf and much more and a lot of these are detailed in our Attractions page of this website.
There are a number of restaurants and a supermarket within short 400 metre walking distance of Quinta da Colina. However, to make the most of your holiday, you need a car; it's essentail. That is our recommendation no matter where you stay in the Algarve.
We have two pools, one for chldren and a great horizon pool for everyone.
Apart from the superb construction, finish and fit-out, the amount of space you will find in Quinta Da Colina is sure to impress

|Further details indoors|
Our houses are beautiful. Internally all are identically configured. We have two large en-suite bedrooms upstairs and a very large kitchen and living area on the ground floor. This leads via expansive patio doors to a large private barbeque terrace.
There are great sea views from the ground floor however we also have a roof terraces with incredible views of the Algarve coastline and inland.
|Further details outdoors|
There are hardly any steps at ground floor level meaning access with buggies, wheelchairs etc. from the house to the fantastic pools and garden area is simple and easy.
Our houses only differ in their location with respect to the pool and in their internal furnishings and equipment. For those houses for instance that we allocate as child-friendly, we will have stairgates pre-installed and certain security measures added to ensure that the little ones don't escape. There is not a single badly located house within Quinta da Colina and we will allocate to you the property which we think will best suit.
We are located on acres of land and it is impossible for Colina to ever feel crowded. There's simply too much space for the small number of houses we have.
Rates quoted are for 4 adults. A surcharge applies for any additional adults, which varies according to season
The Algarve region
The Central Algarve is where the Portuguese go for holidays. Around 1.5million British, 800,000 French and 800,000 Germans visit annually.
The climate is very close to that of California with 300 days of sunshine per year and rarely becoming too hot.
Tourism is big business in the Algarve, so everything you would expect in a sunshine holiday is within easy reach.
There is a huge amount available for every taste through historical centres, nature reserves and outdoors activities; beaches, golf, equestrian, waterparks, zoos, cycling safaris and day trips, and water sports being just a few of the activities on offer.
We have relationships with some of the best services providers in the Algarve and are happy to help you with activities.
Patroves is an upmarket area close to Gale and around five or so minutes drive to Albufeira. Gale (pronounce "Galay" and Guia, two resort areas famed for their excellent beaches and restaurants. Gale is home to the five star hotel and resort of Sao Rafael. The beauty of Patroves, is that it's close to a huge and diverse range of amenities but is wonderfully secluded so that you can have the best of both worlds. I haven't counted them but there must be ten different beaches within 5 or 10 minutes drive of Quinta da Colina. What's great about them is that the beaches are varied in size and features and most, even the smaller ones have great restaurants, most of which operate all year round and rely on reputation for great food to stay busy.
You are a world away from Albufeira, but if you would like to dip into the nightlife and activity, Colina is a short drive away.
As you would expect in a location that boasts more sunshine than California, the sunshine state, there are numerous waterparks, marine and outdoor activities and golf. The closest golf course is Salgados, which is a five minute drive away, but within a 30 minute drive there are around 20 other courses, many of which are world-class. Several of the Algarve's golf courses have been host to Masters' tournaments.
