There are 3 double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, and a good sized shower and toilet on the upper floor level. On the ground level we have one bedroom, which opens onto the terrace and gorgeous view, an open lounge/dining area that also opens onto the terrace.The kitchen is small but well equipped. There is a separate laundry room alongside a shower-room and toilet and storage rooms for poolside beds, tables, umbrellas as required. The pool and garden are maintained all the year round.
We have retained traditional Portuguese features - stone walls, wooden ceilings and beams, wood burning stove and terracotta tiled floors. All rooms are well furnished and there is central heating in all rooms. Each bedroom has 2 single beds that can be zipped together to make 3 super king size beds and all rooms have portable fans for the summer weather. All bed linen, towels and bath robes are provided. There is a sofa bed and 2 fold away beds for extra visitors - we have had 9 people staying! We have a well stocked bookcase where you can help yourself to your holiday reading and a selection of family games. We leave some of our own items in the house and food basics in the kitchen - just make yourself at home. We have satellite TV with some UK channels and a DVD player.
We aim to have a "home from home" destination for holiday or "escape from it all" longer lets as required - please contact us if you would wish a longer and/or winter let. We are 20 minutes from Faro, about 5 minutes drive from Sao Bras d'Alportel, 10 minutes drive from Loule, with a café bar/restaurant and small shop at the end of our road – a 5 minute walk. The cafe owners are Portugese and speak perfect english, and being local, are very helpful in providing all the information you may need - as well as local food and drink suggestions!

- Very Good
A wonderful villa in a beautiful location with all requirements thought of by the owners to make it a home from home. The superb cafe and steakhouse within walking distance just made the whole thing perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed a relaxing 2 weeks and can honestly say the whole package probably exceeded many previous stays in a similar area in the Algarve. Will definitely be back.
Owner's reply: Many thanks and will be delighted to have you back! Caroline
Had a great two weeks here in this lovely restored farmhouse , full of charm and we all loved it . Owners are really friendly and we couldn't have wished for more . Will be returning again
“If you want a relaxing, get away from it all type holiday, then this is the villa for you!”
We have been going to Portugal for many years now and have always had a great time staying here. It is a very comfortable, well equipped family home which caters for all ages. The bedrooms are bright and welcoming, particularly the terrace room, which overlooks the fabulous pool. There are plenty sun loungers, inflatable pool toys. umbrellas and tables and chairs for everyone’s enjoyment and comfort. There is a brick built barbeque by the pool for your convenience. There is a very friendly bar and restaurant just 5 minutes walk away where you can eat amazing langoustine and drink a very reasonable white wine! A car is essential if you want to visit the amazing beaches, although we had a holiday one year and used the local taxi service, which worked out to be the same cost as hiring a car. I guarantee that you will want to return, once you have experienced just how relaxing a holiday in this villa actually is. Enjoy!
“Prefect holiday .lovely place and lovely area can't wait to go back there ...!”
A really wonderful week away. Farm house had everything we might need. Was so peaceful and relaxing. Views to die for, great weather, lovely pool. Food and drinks lovely at Paula's bar ( less than 5 min walk away ) , so welcoming, helpful and friendly, can't wait to go back ASAP :-) Owner very helpful and friendly. Can't thank you enough Caroline, many thanks Craig, Wendy and Charlie.
“Most relaxing holiday ever”
We recently spent a fantastic family holiday at Casa Quintinha; the third time we have done so. The villa provides the opportunity for the most relaxing holiday in a quiet location. There are a number of restaurants within easy driving distance or a really nice local bar and restaurant only 5 minutes walk away. The villa itself is very well appointed and has been tastefully furnished . The pool is an excellent size, much larger than we have normally experienced in other villas. We will definitely be booking this villa again.
“Fantastic place to stay, whether you want peace or to explore.”
This is a real "home from home" - so very comfortable and with everything needed for a relaxing restful stay. My friend used the pool every day while I reclined on a sun bed. The local cafe owners are extremely helpful and serve good food and good drinks, both non and alcoholic varieties. They also provide a free wi-fi service, which my friend used. The location is not only a short journey from the airport, but is also a good base from which to explore the immediate countryside, towns and villages. The information folder in the house recommends excellent restaurants and excursions and we totally agreed! We will be back.
