'Just to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Quinta do Montinho. We had a fantastic time and the house was superbly located and equipped. We had the pool to ourselves most of the time - which was great. The boys loved Salema beach. We hope to go back again soon' - Caroline and Martin Johnson and family

Beautiful town-house!

  • 5 of 5

The western Algarve was our favorite stop on our holiday. This home was very well appointed, super clean, extremely roomy, and had absolutely everything we needed and more. The house is ideal for two couples or a family of five. The comfortable king sized beds and local breeze made for great sleeps in a very quiet neighborhood. The townhouse complex was very well maintained and had a beautiful pool and lounge area for relaxing. The yard itself was beautifully manicured with lounge chairs and a table seating for 4. On the top floor there was a balcony that sported a beautiful view of the Budens valley, with sea views in the distance,

Judith the owner was an excellent communicator and went above and beyond to ensure our visit was the best it could be - and it was! Intermarche grocery store was minutes away and a number of local restaurants to choose from.

The home provided us with a great launching point to all the sites and beaches of the western Algarve on both the Mediterranean and the Pacific oceans for easy day trips - all withing 5 - 45 minutes drive.

We highly recommend this townhouse for an extremely comfortable stay and we will definitely be back again!
