Quinta Alma is all you need to reconnect with life, nature and yourself *****
A 50 hectares farm of wild mountain landscape, tamed by an artistic settling with unique craft safari tents embed in nature.
The land is a retreat by itself. Bathed by nature under an amazing starlight sky, Quinta Alma is a beautiful composition of hills and valleys, with a water stream and a 5000 square meter lake, surrounded by wild flowers, seasonal forest berries and mushrooms, ancient and recent trees, owls, eagles and wild boars. Bird watching, stargazing and trekking are just a few of the many meditative activities that you can embark at Quinta Alma.
Guests have access to walk all around the 50 hectares as long respecting the non-fire and non-smoking. They can swim in the lake and enjoy a private beach.
Breakfast is self service and you can choose from home made tricks, local production greens and fruits, and healthy starters.
We have bikes for guests to use but you also can bring your own; and we have a small telescope for a summer Moon hunt in the warm summer evenings.
The breakfast deck is also a common relax lounge with books and board games, Wi-fi, and some Hammocks in the pine shades.
If you want to spend a day in the beach we can prepare a picnic basket just for you, or a Special Breakfast/Brunch so you don't leave your Safari Tent that day (prices according to different menus).
In Quinta Alma there is also a place for kids to play :) a wooden playhouse, and outside games and toys are ready for the small adventurous kids. This Area is in front of the chill-out area and breakfast, so parents can see their children without being right above them.
Childcare or babysitting for parents to have a romantic evening might be also possible under request.

The best is to have bring a car … this area of the country offers the best natural treasures, like world class beaches, natural trekking and amazing birds. However, public transportation is not the best here. We believe this is also why the beaches are not overcrowded even in August...
We are half an hour away from Lagos, and in the middle of Costa Vicentina, so a lot to explore and be amazed in a 50km ratio.
