Spacious, clean and with lovely views

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful terrace giving sunrise views, we found this apartment very practical and convenient for visiting the SW Algarve. Only criticism was there were no basics such as washing up liquid , salt &pepper etc so we had to shop for these. Otherwise would be a 5 star review .

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We always leave basics but if other guests use them up & don't replace then we won't necessarily know. We stay in a lot of holiday cottages in the U.K. & it's rare to find any basics in the kitchen - & I agree with you that it's a bit of a nuisance having to take them (it's just happened to us this week at Center Parcs). I'll pass on to house manager & see if they can check in future. Glad that you were happy with everything else. Louise

A lovely clean, bright and fully equipped home.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house by an unspoilt village with hidden gems and all the advantages of the golf complex. Beautiful beaches nearby and a pool within a 3 minute walk. Own transport necessary to take full advantage of the area.

Lovely house, homely, very clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with two teenagers and we had a lovely stay in this two bedroom house on the Parque da Floreste. The house is situated near the top of the hill with parking right outside. We found the house to be very clean with more than the essentials we needed and it felt like a home from home. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony which although not huge, we were still able to have BBQ evenings out there overlooking the countryside towards the sea. It was very windy for the first couple of days and sound of the wind through the palm tree outside sounded like the sea and weirdly relaxing ! The layout worked well for us with the living/dining area upstairs and the good sized bedrooms downstairs. The shared pool was a good size with a separate toddler pool beside it. There were toilets and showers beside the pool and a fridge for people to store their drinks and ice creams if they wanted to have them by the pool. We pool is quite a few steps down the hill from the house which was no problem for us and on occasion when we were feeling lazy and coming back from a trip out in the car, we parked up beside the pool area. The house is about a 15 minute walk to the Golf clubhouse and to the supermarket but I would say a car is essential to take advantage of all the lovely beaches in the area like Salema, Burgau and Luz. I'd recommend a trip to Amado beach on the West Coast. It's about half an hour away but is a great Surfing beach with a really good surf school. We went out every day to different beaches then back to the shared pool to chill out there before either eating in the house, at the Golf Clubhouse or going to the various restaurants in the towns nearby. The house was very quiet and exceeded our expectations. I would definitely recommend this house to friends and family.

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

I'm a frequent visitor to this resort, and this is the house in which i stayed more times. It´s a lovely house with great views, quiet, good surroundings. It has everything you might need. Well-maintained property, a bit far from the pool but that´s ok. The kids love it. The owners are quite friendly. We intend to go there again next year.

Nearest Airport
60 Kilometres
Faro Airport
Car: recommended

The Western Algarve remains untouched by mass development and offers a glimpse of how the region must have been before tourism arrived.

Quinta do Montinho is situated between the Moorish town of Lagos and the ancient port of Sagres and is close to many of the best and quietest beaches on the Algarve.

The house overlooks the village of Budens which offers a well stocked supermarket and a good restaurant.

The resorts of Luz, Salema and Burgau are lower key, quieter resorts than other Algarvian holiday centres and all within easy reach. The nearest beach to Quinto do Montinho is in Salema, just 3km away. A picturesque fishing village, Salema offers a magnificent wide, sheltered bay and a handful of bars and restaurants. The beautiful west coast beaches are less than 20 minutes drive.

Luz is one of the most picturesque of the resorts west of Lagos with its wide crescent of a beach, backed by cliffs and its wide selection of restaurants, offering a choice of superb food.

Other Activities: Golf course, driving range and golf academy on site. Football academy
