"The perfect holiday, excellant accomodation, fabulous location, everything you could ever want from a holiday."
Quinta Da Varzea Grande is the perfect holiday, fab accommodation and location all you could ever want. The owners Mark & Ruth have thought of everything you could possibly need, including inflatables for the beautiful pool which really pleased the children in our group. Each villa also has a private terrace for when you want some privacy. The Villas were so well equipped and comfortable a real home from home. Rarely do you find a holiday that lives up to all expectations but this one exceeded it! Make sure you use the excellent barbeque house which is so pretty, a real added bonus. We had an amazing holiday on our first visit to Portugal. We will certainly be re booking for next year. Take a trip to Luz you're nearest beach, we all enjoyed the beach and jumping in the waves and a few cheeky drinks in a beach front bar served by friendly and accommodating staff. Also try Tiffany's Riding Centre which is an easy 5km away, riders and non riders catered for and a lovely way to explore the countryside. The bars / restaurants in nearby Espiche offer a wide selection of dishes at a very affordable price. Mark & Ruth thanks for an amazing holiday see you next year.
