Truly a unique vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the most enjoyable five weeks at this vacation rental. From the time we discovered this property on the internet, we were determined to spend at least a part of our Eastern Algarve vacation here. We would have spent all of our 12.5 weeks at Quinta Sol e Mar if space was available. What we experienced was a relaxing stay at an executive category property, professionally landscaped, and maintained. We spent three weeks in the two bedroom ground floor unit in the main lodge, and two weeks in the Villa Romanzeira. Each of the units were clean, well furnished, with full kitchens, and spacious bathrooms. Common areas which include the gardens with plenty of fruit trees, pool and barbecue areas, and the private patio areas were very well planned for the enjoyment of the guests.

We found Heidi and Jens who manage this property to be very responsive to our emails, and always willing to offer help when asked. Even though we did not meet the property owner, we appreciate his kindness and understanding at the time of the reservation.

We wholeheartedly recommend this property to future guests, and if you are looking for a country retreat in the Eastern Algarve, Quinta Sol e Mar has to be at the top of the list. We look forward to returning to this property at a future occasion.

A beautiful & tranquil place in the sun

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place as described in the literature, so tranquil & yet nearer enough to all amenities, culture & the sea.. Very clean apartment, sympathetically decorated, with absolutely everything catered for ~ "a real home from home". We couldn't have wished for better hosts than Heidi & Jens from the moment of booking, to out departuture time. We'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting a restful & relaxing break.

In jeder Hinsicht absolut super

  • 4 of 5

Die Anlage ist sehr gepflegt, mit vielen Obstbäumen, u.a. eine Orangenplantage, von denen man sich je nach Reifezustand nach Herzenslust bedienen kann.

Die Betreuung durch das Ehepaar Röver war hervorragend, die Wohnung sehr gemütlich, so dass man am liebsten gar nicht mehr heimgeflogen wäre.

Ein winziges Negativ-Pünktchen: da die Anlage ziemlich abseits liegt, ist ein Mietwagen empfehlenswert, wenn man nicht gut zu Fuß ist.

auch beim 2. Mal wieder begeistert.....

  • 5 of 5

Die Quinta hat Charme und Stil. Hier hat man bei der Einrichtung auf Details geachtet! Grosszügiges, sauberes Wohnen mit Komfort und allem, was man sich für einen entspannenden Urlaub wünscht.

Dazu eine wirklich gut ausgestattete Küche, W-Lan für die Technik Freaks und eine gepflegte Pool-Anlage mitsamt Grill und Außenküche. Der Garten dürfte zu fast jeder Jahreszeit das passende Obst bieten - Pflücken erwünscht.

Absolut empfehlenswert ist jedoch ein Auto, um zu den vorgelagerten Strand-Inseln der Ria Formosa zu gelangen, denn der fußläufig erreichbare Abschnitt der Ria Formosa ist nicht wirklich zum Baden geeignet. Der nächste Supermercado in Fuzeta (ca. 3,5 km) ist nicht der Größte, aber sehr gut sortiert.

Der Algarve-Radweg führt übrigens fast am Haus vorbei und ist sehr empfehlenswert.

Immer eine Reise wert- top!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren nun schon zum zweiten mal in der Quinta und es war wieder total erholsam und einfach traumhaft schön. Wir wurden durch die Gastgeber erneut sehr herzlich empfangen und mit aktuellen Informationen versorgt. Unsere Ferienwohnung war erneut in einem Topzustand, sehr stilvoll mit Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet. Sehr vorzuheben ist die hauseigene Orangenplantage, die jeden Früh den frischgepressten Orangensaft garantiert. Sehr lecker!!! Die Anlage top gepflegt, der Pool ein Traum und auch die Grillmöglichkeit lädt zu gemütlichen Abenden ein. In der Umgebung befinden sich zahlreiche sehr schöne Sandstrände, die in der Hauptsaison allerdings sehr voll sind. Wer Ruhe sucht lieber Nebensaison wählen. Im Ganzen ein sehr schönen Urlaub, der nach einer Wiederholung ruft.

Super entspannter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten wunderbare 1 1/2 Wochen in einer der besten Ferienwohnung, die wir bisher hatten. Wir fanden die Wohnung genau so vor, wie es im Internet beschrieben ist. Die Obstplantage, der Garten, die Poolanlage und das ganze drum herum hat dafür gesorgt, dass wir uns herrlich entspannen konnten und auch ganze Tage am / im Pool verbracht haben. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man so braucht, Geschirr und Besteck ist ausreichend vorhanden, alles ist sauber und gepflegt. Aufgrund der sehr genauen Wegbeschreibung haben wir das Haus auf Anhieb gefunden (ca. 30 Minuten vom Flughafen Faro). In der Umgebung gibt es vieles zu entdecken: Olhao (Markthalle, Bauernmarkt am Samstag) Tavira lädt zum bummeln ein und auch Fuseta ist einen Besuch wert. Und vieles mehr, was wir nicht geschafft haben. Das heißt: wir kommen mit Sicherheit wieder.

Quinta Sol e Mar is a stylish property has been tastefully converted into a private vacation paradise, the four units share a 50m ² pool, large common area with pergola, barbecue area and outdoor kitchen as well as the beautiful orchard. Only 400 meters begins the lagoon area of ??the Ria Formosa. Tides present here every day an impressive spectacle. The Wadden Sea is a playground of many bird species such as White Stork and Flamingo. In neighboring Fuseta regular ferries to the islands. Except lagoon, sea and sand beach lure in the local area so sympathetic towns like Tavira and Olhão. Within a radius of 45km, there are 10 golf courses on the doorstep to the Algarve cycling path that runs to the Spanish border. In the hinterland of the Serra attracts to walking or mountain biking.
