“Excellent holiday at Monte da Quinta” We stayed here in April, 4 of us for a week. Michaella and Nigel met us when we arrived and we're very welcoming hosts. We stayed in the 3 bed villa which was lovely. The bedrooms were very big, clean and are done out as the rest of the villa to a very high standard. Monte da Quinta is a working farm and is gorgeous. There are pigs, goats, geese, chickens and 3 horses. It was really relaxing having a walk around, feeding the pigs with our left overs and then having a walk to the Nora which dates back to Roman times. Then there is the swimming pool just outside the 2 villas. It's very relaxing and very refreshing.
Castro Verde is a lovely town with a few bars and restaurants. Everyone was very friendly and we didn't have one bad meal over our week stay. Michaella and Nigel are also very happy to recommend some good places to go where us tourists wouldn't even think of going. The food and drink is so cheap (about 1 euro a beer).
There are also so many other places (toany to lisy) to go to if you fancy a trip out in the car.
Overall a great holiday and very relaxing.
I would 100% return here and am already planning my next trip.
“The best relaxing holiday in the most tranquil surroundings” 5th return I think. As always it was a time to remember with friends. Great company, fun times and no better place to spend it. We love it year after year we return.
