We stayed at this stylish Quinta twice (once in 2009, once in 2012) and both stays were very good. The drive up there is a bit of a tortuous path (be prepared for some searching), but once you're there you will be warmly greeted by the friendly staff. The rooms are clean, spacious and some offer a magnificent view on... More
