the Quinta

The quinta is located on an estate of 3 hectares and everywhere you can walk around on the land straight into the nature. The vegetation of the quinta includes orange, fig and olive trees. Near the house there is a well, where neighbours still get drinkwater and women are doing the wash. ..more about the Quinta

Our location

The distance to Faro airport is 14 km, and in a 5-minute drive you find the villages of Moncarapacho and St. Catarina. Here there are banks, postoffices and shops. Moncarapacho has some good and cheap restaurants.
Closeby there are beautiful beaches and also lovely towns or villages to visit as Tavira, Olhao, Faro and Fuseta. Sevilla is located one and a half hours drive away.

At the quinta there is the necessary space for entertainment. There is a billiard, dartboard (please bring your own darts), jeu-de-boule track and of course the possibility to swim. Around the quinta there is free internet acces to pick up your email. And in the summer we eat often spontaneously along with the guests outside on the large table or have a barbecue together.
It is important to rent a car, or if you prefer cycling, we can help you to rent a bike.  Public transport is not well regulated and drives not frequent.
