Location description from owner

The Algarve region

Portugal is situated in the far western corner of Europe and has a strikingly long beautiful coastline. The Algarve’s extensive coastline is blessed with a wealth of long sandy beaches and small sheltered coves .The Algarve benefits from the best climate in Europe, with year round blue skies, around 3000 hours of sunshine a year and usually only a short period of rainfall between November and March. The climate of the Algarve is milder than elsewhere in the country not only because of its southerly position and proximity to Africa, but because of a protective chain of hills along its northern boundary and the influences of the sea. Temperatures in the Algarve generally range from 15 degrees to around 31, but never dip below freezing in the winter.
This combination of climate and coastline means that the Algarve is tailor-made for tourism. The sunshine and the beaches are the biggest draw, but in recent years the building of a host of superb golf courses along with an increased interest in rural holidays has developed tourism into an all-year-round business.

Vale de Parra

Thanks to an ever-growing tourist industry, Albufeira has become one of the most desired holiday destinations in Europe.Here there is a mixture of the historic and traditional flavour of the Algarve with cobbled streets and picturesque leafy town squares.With its superb variety of restaurants, bars and shops, the Old Town is a very safe family orientated area.
Vale de Parra is to the west of Albufeira and has some of the Algarve's finest beaches. The best known is probably Galé, a vast expanse of golden sand with restaurants and water sports, including jet-skiing and parasailing. Galé can get busy in the summer months, but if you turn down any of the tracks along the coast road you are likely to find a secluded beach or bay. To the west of Vale de Parra is where you will find Quinta da Saudade , a mature estate of privately owned villas with a restaurant and bar. It is only five minutes from the beaches and just above Salgados Golf Club.
Further west is Armacao de Pera; a typical Portuguese fishing town. Part of Armacao de Pera beach remains known as 'Fisherman's beach'. Here you can see brightly coloured boats sitting on the sand with local fishermen tending their nets. There are plenty of excellent restaurants in the town with most serving fabulous locally caught fish and of course Chicken Piri Piri! Armacao de Pera can be quite lively in the evenings with bars, shops and restaurants along the promenade. On summer evenings the promenade also hosts many craft stalls where you can shop for souvenirs whilst enjoying the warm Algarvian sea breeze.

“perfect place in a peaceful spot !”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

This is an excellent , well maintained & extremely well equipped, spacious 2 bedroom villa on an established, quiet and unspoilt complex which in itself, provides excellent facilities and surroundings. The pool areas are clean with all the required amenities,the gardens, buildings and grounds are all well cared for & looked after by all the staff at the Quinta. Everyone is extremely friendly & helpful The villa offers comfort, privacy & the opportunity to relax in a quiet location with excellent views from the lounge, bedroom or roof terrace across the Quinta, wetlands & coast. It is a pleasure to sit on the roof terrace & listen to or watch the horses ride out to the wetlands for their daily trecks! or enjoy a glass of wine of the an evening and watch the sunset over the hill Maid service is provided & everything is spotless, plenty of storage, comfortable clean beds, & good bathroom facilities. Booking is easy, & adequate information is provided by the owner to ensure that your stay is trouble free. There is a restraunt on the Quinta site (although this was not visited so unable to comment on what was on offer). There are plenty of other very good restraunts in the vacinity of the Quinta, although a car is needed to get these. We have visited this area for a number of years & stayed in excellent villas of very high standards. This 2 bedroom accomadation takes a lot of beating & if peace, tranquility and relaxation is needed then this is the place to go !

Thank you for your lovely review.We hope we can welcome you back again in the near future!

“Panoramic views from roof terrace”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2012

We stayed at Villa 3B in early October for 2 weeks. The villa was nicely furnished with a well equipped kitchen and the daily maid service was a real bonus. The bedrooms were a good size although the beds were plenty firm enough for us. The roof top terrace is well equipped with panoramic views to the coast. The complex itself is in a quiet location and is only a short drive to the nearest town. The owner, Christine, was very helpful and answered any queries we had promptly. We had a great stay, the weather was fantastic and we would not hesitate to book this villa again.

Thank you for your kind review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Quinta. We would love to welcome you back in the near future!

“clean,cosy and comfortable - what more can you ask for?”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2012

We have been to "The Quinta" on a number of occasions and this villa is the best yet we have stayed in. If it's peace and tranquility you are looking for then this is the place to be.

Thank you for your lovely review and hopefully we can look forward to welcoming you back next year!

“Spacious accommodation on beautiful site”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2012

The Quinta da Saudade is a beautiful site with mature plants. It is situated on the side of a hill, so the property is not overlooked and you have an undisturbed view over marshland to the sea from the roof terrace, where there is a build in barbeque. The house itself is spacious and well furnished. The pools are not overcrowded and it is very quiet and relaxed. Any small problems are immediately taken care of. The maid service is friendly and efficient. There are many beaches close by, quiet ones and others well serviced with sunbeds and food. There are plenty of shops and restaurants in the vicinity. For the beaches, shopping and restaurants you would need a car.

Thank you for your very descriptive review of the Quinta, we agree, it is a beautiful site. We are so pleased you enjoyed your 2nd stay at our villa and we look forward to welcoming you back for maybe a third time in the not too distance future?!

“Excellent- couldn't ask for more!”

Reviewed 21 Jun 2012

Stayed in the villa for 1 week from 12-19 June 2012 and loved every single minute of it!! The owner is wonderful by sending us helpful emails before we went including excellent directions from the airport ( a godsend since we landed at night!) and places of interest. The villa is so homely and child safe. My 2 children aged 4 and 2 loved the pool, the childrens play area, paddling pool and not forgetting the horses!. The villa is perfectly situated to get around and Gale beach is literally a 5 minute drive away and is outstanding. Everyone is so friendly and you feel very safe. The farmhouse restuarant served gorgeous food and were more than ready to stand and chat with you and happy for children to be children. Will definatley be returning and can't wait.

Thank you for your lovely comments and we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our villa, so much so, that you are all returning next year for 2 weeks!
