“Great place for families to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We had a wonderful time staying at Quinta Fonte do Bispo. My children loved the pool, trampoline, tennis courts, and toys that were around. It was a great atmosphere and very relaxing. We ate dinner there each night and the food and wine was always very good. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were very spacious with 2 separate rooms which makes it easy for families to stay together. The only problem that we had were the mosquitoes. There was no AC and opening the windows meant that the mosquitoes were all around. That was the only issue we had. The rest of the stay was wonderful. Thanks for hosting us.

After searching for an affordable place close to Tavira for a short stay that was child friendly, Quinta Fonte do Bispo certainly met these requirements. It's a charming 'tourismo rural' that has 6 'cottage rooms' that perfectly cater for a family of 4 and also provides services to the surrounding community (mainly the ex-pats). The day we arrived there was an Arts & Craft fair in the gardens. Our 2 boys (age 4 and 6) were in heaven with the range of facilities including a really good sized swimming pool, tyre swings, table tennis, table football, a pool table and trampoline in the gardens.
Breakfast was continental style - cereals, bread, jams, fresh fruit, ham & cheese.
My only disappointment was the bistro, which their website advertises is open every day including dinner, but both evenings of our stay we had to drive into Tavira for a meal when we would have preferred to have stayed on site. I don't know if this was because we were the only residents that weekend (although they do get business from non residents) - it all seemed a bit hit and miss with what was available. We also couldn't get hot water the 2nd day but I'm sure if we had of flagged this up it would have been sorted.
I would however stay here again - I know the boys would love to return !

Room Tip: All 6 rooms are the same size, location etc

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2009

Both the owners and their charming staff were extremely friendly and helpful in every way during our stay. We had a very comfortable suite consisting of three bedrooms and a shared bathroom - perfect for a family with older kids. The Quinta is in peaceful country a short way from Tavira and from the hills behind the coast, and an easy drive from the Spanish border. Tavira is an unusually charming and unspoilt Algarve coastal town which we were very glad to get to know. Some of our group were vegetarians, and we were really grateful for the good vegetarian food provided at the Quinta. The pool - never crowded and in a very pleasant garden setting - was the biggest attraction for the kids, but they really loved the very friendly resident dogs as well. Our only disappointment was a trip to visit the portuguese water dogs in a beautiful coastal nature reserve,only to find that it shut. In short, we all had a very happy time at the Quinta.

Although I did not stay onsite I found a great refuge at Quinta. The owners were especially friendly and the meal service was great. The grounds are lovely and special attention paid to keeping the areas clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this place if you are in the area.

I highly recommend the Quinta Fonte do Bispo to anyone who wants a holiday in a friendly, relaxing, nicely appointed resort with plenty of facilities and exciting events. It is a family owned establishment whose hosts bend over backwards to assist the visitors treating them like family, personally taking them about in their own car if necessary. The staff are helpful, the food very good and varied and the units comfortable. It is conveniently located and there are events happening in and around the Quinta to suit everyone's tastes. This family has owned the Quinta for only 2 years and has done extremely well so far with plans in the works to up-date and increase the number of units etc. I look forward to returning again and again and taking some of my friends.
