“Sophisticated retreat in a rustic Algarvian setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2010

A charming B & B located away from the crowds in a river valley but close to the attractions of the Algarve. The room was comfortable and clean with a great deal of attention to detail. The owners create a warm, family-like atmosphere and are extremely helpful and accommodating. A wonderful retreat from which to visit the Algarve.

Quninta Tapada do Gramacho is a real hidden gem. Set in a beautiful picturesque location, this modern accommodation is very clean and a real home from home. The Dutch couple that run it are really friendly and helpful - Karin bakes her own bread for breakfast as well as providing delicious homemade preserves and jams. Karin gave us great recommendations for local restaurants (where we had the best minted lamb loin I have ever tasted!!) and really went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. Definitely worth a visit.

Good points; A friendly hostess who makes the most delicious bread and preserves, designer rooms that are quirky, comfy, well equiped and clean, quiet surroundings yet just minutes to Silves and easilly linked to the motorway/coast.
Bad points; we probably won't be able to return for at least another year.
As a couple I think it might not be a good idea in high summer as the guesthouse seems very popular with families but for shoulder season an ideal, quite romantic destination.

I stayed at Quinta Tapada do Gramacho with my partner for three days in July. It was fantastic. The phrase "personal touch" is much bandied around, but this place really does have it. The Dutch couple who own and run the establishment go out of their way to make you feel at home from the outset, and nothing is too much trouble. It's set in a beautiful spot on the outskirts of Silves. You can get to the town centre in 5 minutes, and to some fantastic beaches in 20. Testament to how we felt about this place is that 24 hours after checking out, we checked back in again - the subsequent hotel couldn't match it. Highly recommended.
