Quinta de Sant'Ana, sits in a superb location surround by vine and orange trees, abundance of flowers and beautiful, lush green vegetation. The courtyard leads into well-appointed buildings which accommodated my son's wedding. The courtyard boasted of a wonderful display of flowers and shrubs and in April with the wisteria in full bloom provided a splendid backdrop for wedding photographs. A perfect setting made even more amazing was the precision of staff coordinating the day event. This included a brass band serenading the happy couple from the local church through the small village and into the courtyard, staff ensuring the flow of refreshments and finger buffet was available for wedding guests, a wine tasting was available followed by the wedding banquet in the main hall. Fresh flowers and foliage adorned the room creating a wonderful ambiance. The food was delicious, and the menu accommodated guests’ preferences. Moving from the dinning area and into a further courtyard where the cutting of the wedding cake was enhanced by a firework display. A varied selection of music allowed guests to dance the night away. Should they become hungry or thirsty after dancing and assortment of local cheeses, finger food and drink was in plentiful supply.
This was a truly marvellous experience, made special by the attention of detail by Quinta de Sant’Ana staff, the stunning location and fabulous hospitality. Thank you for making the day so special.

We stayed in the Adega house, the Caseiro house and the stable room 4, it was amazing. The houses were decorated impeccable in classic style, the stable room modern exclusive style, all very clean and well taken care of. The service provided by the Quinta, as with most things in Portugal, very high standard and a desire to make the guests’ stay the best possible. Only advise is if you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs because the gallo (rooster) is up early! 😉

We cannot thank our wedding coordinator Alex and all the staff at Quinta de Sant'Ana enough for making our wedding day so incredibly fantastic. It was like a fairytale dream come true!!

The venue itself is literally mind-blowingly beautiful, the food is out of this world and the wine, well, magnificent. All our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue and level of service they received on the day. John and I cannot thank you enough for how well you looked after us and everyone else.

You will always hold a very special place in our hearts and we cannot wait to plan a family reunion to be there again.

Thank you so much for giving us the best day we could have ever dreamed of and more!!

We are a regular guest at Quinta Sant'Ana and can tell with conviction that this place is absolutely amazing! It is not only very very beautiful, they also have great people working there. They organize everything to perfection, with a lot of care and compassion. We absolutely recommend their wines, the vineyard picnic and all the events haha. It is a must to visit, even if you only have a stroll around and taste one of their wines.

We just had our wedding here recently and that was one of the best decisions I have made in life. Friends are still talking about how beautiful the Quinta was and how much fun they had. We haven't visited the Quinta until our wedding day but everything was planned and organized through emails. Staff including Ann, Alexandra, Zofia gave me so much advice during the planning process and Liliana our day manager took care everything for us on the day of so we got to enjoy. The whole team made destination wedding planning so easy!

After a lengthy search of wedding venues around Portugal, we never thought we would find anywhere as authentically beautiful as Quinta de Sant'Ana. The minute we found it online we just knew it was perfect ..... But little did we know it would steal a piece of our hearts!

There are no words to describe how brilliant Ann & her team are. The attention to detail is second to none and could never be recreated elsewhere. Ann is everything rolled into one - You name it; wedding planner / host / coordinator / florist / advisor .... And a friend at the end of the process!

Our guests commented that it was just one amazing surprise after the other. And the best part is that it is all completely authentic.... The doves in the courtyard really do live there! The impressive wine cellar & vineyards are worked tirelessly to produce very fine wines. And the pigs, donkey, chickens really are part of a working farm! Not to mention the breathtaking views....

But even the food is exquisite! And that is coming from quite a few "foodies" who were among our guests. From the canapés on arrival, the delicious 5 course meal to the midnight feast, nobody went home hungry that night (or early morning I should say!)

Most importantly this is a family home to Ann & James Frost and their 7 (yes seven!) boys. And we can't forget their lovely friendly dogs! From the minute you walk into Quinta de Sant'Ana you get a warm and homely feel. This is what sold it to us! It felt like our second home and made leaving so hard.... But I have no doubt we will go back to visit.

So whether it is a wedding venue you are looking for or simply to pass an afternoon in a beautiful place for wine tasting... Look no further than Quinta de Sant'Ana! It is truely a hidden gem. You won't regret it as it's the best decision we ever made!! Lucy & Mark xxx

As soon as we arrived at Quinta de Sant'ana we knew it was the wedding venue for us.

The entire experience from planning to the day was fantastic.

First, the venue itself is stunning. There are so many different areas which you move around during the wedding day. Our guests loved this aspect of the day.

Secondly, the food and wine. Delicious. Our guests, and us, were blown away. The generosity and quality of both really stood out.

Thirdly, the staff. The venue's staff are extremely helpful, and organised, in planning the day. All of our requests were met with a very much 'can do' attitude. On the day, the staff worked so hard to make the day a success. There were thoughtful touches added throughout. The providers recommended by the venue, DJ, photographer etc., are all of a stellar standard. The venue also arranged our flowers and decoration which were beautiful. We could not have asked for a better team of people to liaise with.

Thank you Quinta de Sant'ana for making our wedding day. If you're planning a wedding, choose this venue. You will not be disappointed.

My daughter and her now husband got married in this wonderful location in October! My wife and I and our 150+ guests , family and friends, could not have wished for a more enjoyable and atmospheric experience , which will be long ingrained in everyones’ memories.

The organization of the day , the superb planning ,the excellent , efficient and friendly staff were top class.What a location!

The wedding ceremony itself, the reception with canapes and drinks in the courtyard ( even an expert cutting slices of delicious ham for guests),the wine tasting in the cellar ( thank you to the estate’s somellier for being so generous and informative!) , and the meal - - Wow - what a meal , and what a spectacular setting!!

Dancing continued well into the early hours - more delicious food - and an endless supply of wine and drinks from start to finish.

My wife and I were absolutely bowled over by the day as were all our guests! Thank you so much ,everyone at Quinta de Sant’Ana!

For several years I had dreamt of having my wedding in a working vineyard, however living in the north of England I didn't believe this dream could become a reality. Praise be to Google for enabling me to find Quinta de Sant'Ana, the wedding venue of my dreams!
I'm sure 99% of wedding couples will attest that their wedding day was the best day of their lives, but I truly believe that our wedding day was up there amongst our guests best days of their lives! We got married in May (apologies for the delayed review...) and our guests are still raving about the amazing time they experienced!
The venue is breathtakingly beautiful, the staff helpful and friendly, the food simply divine and overwhelmingly plentiful and the wine absolutely superb! (Not to mention the lack of hangover being an added bonus here!) If I could re-live my wedding day I would press pause just so I could eat more food, as I'm told that the cheese board was something to behold - if only I could have fit it in!!
Ann is the owner of the Quinta and the main wedding co-ordinator. From day one she was friendly, helpful and professional, while also modestly hiding her talent as a florist! Our bouquets and floral decorations were among the most beautiful I have seen and received many compliments. The rest of Ann's team were equally helpful and hard-working and went out of their way to ensure we had the best day of our lives.
We were lucky enough to be able to stay with our family and wedding party in the accommodation around the Quinta and would very much recommend it to others planning to get married there. It was so nice to be able to experience the serene surroundings for a longer time and it was perfect to celebrate with a hangover-busting hog roast at Marreco House the day after our wedding!
We can't recommend the Quinta highly enough for your wedding - ours was utter perfection! We can't wait to celebrate anniversaries in the future, when I intend to make full use of the cheese board!!

Every Bride and Groom's dream wedding. Coming from USA we had no idea what to expect. Our wildest dreams could never have come close to this amazing wedding venue. Every detail was done to perfection. The food was superior and never stopped coming from 3:00pm -12:00am. The flowers were spectacular and the service extrodinary. Do not hesitate to plan your special day at Quinta de Santa'Ana!
