We stayed at Quinta Stuart for two weeks in the Owl House and absolutely loved it!!- When we were planning our trip to Portugal I was looking for somewhere a bit different and thought that Quinta Stuart looked and sounded great!!- My other half wasn't convinced but when we arrived at the location, he was instantly converted!- Peaceful, beautiful, each...

What a wonderful place and what wonderful people. The place was so beautiful and so clean, easy to find, easy to get around and we loved it. Location is great actually, as you would be a short drive from Faro Airport, and easy drives from the rest of the Algarve. We were made so welcome, that we didn't want to... More

What a lovely week at Quinta Stuart! We were well-cared for by our sensitive and perceptive hosts, and found the coast and countryside to be very accessible on the well-serviced bikes we rented from Quinta Stuart. It's a straightforward (and slightly downhill) 7.5 mile cycle to the famous fishing port of Olhão, with its ferries and water taxis to the... More

Loved the relaxing atmosphere here. Great garden with hammocks. Owl house is nice with own bathroom and own outdoor kitchen. You should have a car to get here & around. There are nice beaches to visit in the area. Closest beach is in Faro, a 15 minute drive. We loved our stay here. Very nice people!

We spent 11 nights at the eco hostel and had one of our most peaceful and relaxing holidays ever. Stu, Owl and Petra are lovely warm hosts! Stu and Owl have built a tranquil, attractive green oasis a million miles away from most modern, soulless hotels. Particularly enjoyed watching a film swinging from a hammock in the Theatre of Dreams.... More

Perfectly located for exploring Southern Portugal. Stu and Owl's ingenuity, practical skills and artistic creativity have made the Eco Hostel a very special place to stay. Saturday night with a home made pizza cooked in Stu's outside wood burning oven followed by relaxing in a hammock watching a film in the Theatre Of Dreams was a sheer delight. The Eco... More

I am interested in permaculture and chose this hostel for the recommendations. It has so much to offer for those keen to see how change is possible, for those who dream but want to see how changes in lifestyle can make a difference. The wonderful hosts were a fount of knowledge, hope and a can-do attitude. Stuart and Owl were... More

I've spent a wonderful stay with my girlfriend at the eco hostel where Owl and Stu welcomed us. It's a bit secluded but not too far from Faro, so it's really easy to come there by car from the airport. We slept in the cosy Owl house where we enjoyed intimacy and traditional equipment. The hostel is a great place... More
