I booked this B&B through Sawdays for 1 night December 2013 (not included now in their listings) on our journey to our house on the Algarve. They asked for a €30 deposit in cash to be mailed to them - could not take a card. I mailed the money and later received an email saying that they had decided to... More

Whilst visiting Elvas me and my boyfriend decided to stay the night, we found this b&b on the internet and decided to give it a go. After we booked it we got an email from Sergio ( the new owners as the English owners have now moved back to the UK) asking if we wanted dinner on the Saturday night... More

I stayed with 2 girlfriends in the 2 bedroom cottage for a week and we couldn't have asked for more or for a better place. The charm and simplicity of the Quinta were enhanced by the Portuguese charm, warm welcome and savoir-vivre of the new owners Rosario & Sergio who treated us like we were part of their family (already...

We stayed for two weeks in May in the little one bedroom villa. A really lovely get-away-from-it-all holiday. Tim and Ann were very friendly and helpful - directing us to the best places and even taking us out on a couple of days. The location is a little out of town but very easy to get to. A beautiful place.

We stayed 3 nights at this beautiful working farm as part of a walking tour of the region. It was absolutely perfect , the hosts were most attentive and helpful,with a deep historical knowledge of the area.The farm is beautifully restored--lovely tilework and very comfortable. The breakfasts were 'to die for'--fresh orange juice,quiche,homemade lemon curd, -on and on. We really... More

Excellent setting - excellent hosts - quiet but handy for town - ideal for those travelling with pet dogs - has a well equipped small guest lounge with dvd facilities which is a nice touch. Don't be put off when you find the Quinta's name and main gates locked. The entrance is a few yards further on down the road!

Lovely spot and great hosts. Convenient to Elvas, but just far enough away to have country charm. I was there for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Very clean, great breakfast, swimming pool, bocce ball, olive groves, a working nursery, a pleasant house and friendly hosts all made this memorable.

We stayed here for one night on our trip around Portugal - and what a place! We were welcomed by Tim, the owner, who is a lovely chap. Him and his wife have been in Portugal for 5 yrs and are a fountain of knowledge when it comes to things to do and see around the area and beyond. Our... More

We had a wonderful time on this vast estate near Elvas close to the Spanish border. Rooms (we stayed in the balcony room and the cottage as well) are nicely furnished and big and the breakfast was really great with lots of choices available (eggs, fruit, etc). Tim and Ann were very helpful and nice and always happy to give... More
