The Quinta is run by Dutch owners Theo and Inge and their sons in a relaxed, ´take us as you find us´ kind of way. All vegetables and fruit at the Quinta are organic and the eggs are freerange. You can purchase organic wine and/or vegetables from local producers or, if available from the Quinta´s garden.
The closest village, Odiaxere, is an authentic village with a daily market with fish and vegetables, a traditional bakery with wonderful bread and pastry, baked in a wood oven and several small shops, cafes and restaurants. Lagos, at 5 km is a lively, historic harbour town with a wide choice of restaurants, cafes and shops. Every Saturday morning there is a farmers market at the bus station. At the big municipal market in the town centre you can buy fresh fish every day except Monday. The Quinta is a perfect point of departure for walking, hiking and biking in the Algarve. We are a 20minutes drive from the Monchique mountains and from Nature resort Costa Vicentina on the west coast. There are a lot of possibilities for watersports like surfing (wind, kit, wave), fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving etc. In the accommodation you´ll find a folder with extensive information.
There is sufficient public transport but a personal transport like a bike scooter or car will help you to go around.

Reviews From Guests
This place is magical !!! We stayed here for four nights and only left the quinta once to do some shopping in the nearby Odiaxere village (you can walk there in 20 mins). The surroundings are beautiful and the pool really big ! Atmosphere in the whole place is healing, calm, eco-friendly. You will fall asleep by the pool under the big carob tree and have amazing dreams. All the other guests were very respectful and we felt like we found our magical retreat away from the main tourist noise in Lagos town. We were lucky to come on a Friday when bakers used the outdoor bread oven and we helped bake some beautiful bread :) Inge made us feel very welcome, she was there when needed but at the same time left us to enjoy our privacy. We absolutely loved our stay here and hope to come back !
