“HIGHLY RECOMMEND”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

I had the most amazing stay at this place! Only stayed for five nights sadly but cannot wait to return someday! Isabella, Jill and Julio were so welcoming and friendly!! I will recommend to all holiday makers, perfect for family holidays with the beach and town close by and younger customers who are interested in nightlife too with many clubs and bars with short taxi journey away!! The dogs are so cute, quiet and friendly and didn't get in the way at all! So much to do in town and nearby and clean gorgeous accommodation with swimming pool! Breakfast served daily with so much choice. Perfect holiday and stay for any preference! I miss it already and only came back in July!

Room Tip: Depends on the size of you group! All perfect sizes and similar gorgeous style

We had a wonderful week staying with Jill and Julio. They made us feel so at home. Situated just outside a quiet farming town the Quinta is like a little oasis to return too after the busy town or beach. Surrounded by beautiful trees ,plants and flowers you can sit and enjoy the tranquility.
The rooms and apartments are typically Portuguese with beautiful individual pieces of furniture. The bedrooms are well equipped with a large fridge and equipment for making simple cold lunches even though they are not self catering. We would love an apartment next time as the area has wonderful farmers markets with fresh food just waiting to be cooked!
The home cooked meals on some evenings meant we could relax and enjoy a few glasses of good wine without having to drive to a restaurant and the food was delicious. It was great to chat to other people and swap ideas for good days out. A big thank you to both Jill and Julio for all their hard work and attention to detail to make sure we had a good time. Can't wait to go back!

We have just returned home from a very relaxing 2 weeks at Quinta das Achadas. This was our 2nd visit, having enjoyed it so much last October we returned with our daughter and her boyfriend. On our first visit we stayed in jasmine which was very spacious, clean and comfortable with a great attention to detail. Everything we needed was supplied. This time we stayed in Mimosa which if possible was even better. The en suite bathrooms were beautifully decorated and very spacious, as were the bedrooms. The lounge area was very comfortable and cosy. I preferred this to jasmine although there isn't anything wrong with jasmine. Again everything we needed was provided in the kitchen. We started each day with a lovely breakfast supplied by jill and Juliom, the choice was always varied with local produce and some lovely homegrown melons and figs and home made marmalade. Quinta das Achadas is situated just outside the village of Odiaxere which has several small shops selling all the essentials. A short drive down the road is Lagos with its lovely marina offering a variety of boat trips and a good choice of eateries. I would say it is essential to hire a car to make the most of what the area has to offer, but Quinta das Archadas also offers a good size pool and a lovely hot tub (which we especially enjoyed when we stayed in October). A well equipped children's play area. We also enjoyed 4 meals during our stay beautifully cooked by Jill and Julio this gave us the opportunity to meet with the other guests and swap stories including places to visit. The atmosphere is very friendly but not intrusive and the attention to deal is second to none.

We stayed at the Quinta das Achadas for three nights as part of a trip across the southern coast of Portugal - it was most definitely the highlight. We were travelling with our two year old son who felt at home right away. The hosts Jill and Julio were extremely kind and accommodating. The apartment was equipped with a cot and Jill provided a baby bath, high chair and was ready to offer advice on visiting the region. Julio is also a fabulous cook and we enjoyed two fabulous meals at a reasonable price on the terrace with the other guests. The Quinta itself is very charming and the gardens lush and green. There was also shaded area that allowed our son to play outside in the midday heat. He was also happy to find many toys available for the children to use. The apartment was tastefully decorated with a lovely little terrace with tables and chairs outside. It's a beautiful place to relax and do very little or as a base to explore the wider region.

We had a wonderful time at Quinta das Achadas. We stayed in Jasmine which was perfect for our family, clean, spacious and well equipped. The location was perfect - near enough to shops and Lagos, but away from the main road. Would recommend a car to get around though.
Breakfast was a real treat in the mornings and the two evening meals were delicious and a great chance to mingle with the other guests. Jill and Julio were great hosts. The swimming pool and children's play area were fab and our kids made friends on the first day, all of which helped to make this the best family holiday we have ever had! would definitely go back

We absolutely loved our holiday at Quinta das Achadas. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment which was spacious, comfortable, well-decorated and private with a lovely large, airy bathroom and a private terrace. Lots of nice touches such as a pretty flower arrangement when we arrived, plentiful thick towels including face flannels and huge beach towels, ice trays, a cool bag for picnics, books, lots of crockery and cutlery (not just 'two of everything') and so on.

The property was very pretty and very well situated, completely in the countryside but near to a little village and only 10 minutes' drive from all the shops and restaurants in Lagos. There was a lovely pool (this would have benefited from one of those automatic pool-cleaners) with plenty of sun loungers and, although we were without children, there was brilliant provision for children in the shape of a playground, toys, and a large shaded area where they could play in the heat of the day.

Breakfasts on our private terrace were a treat, as were our two dinners, with Julio and Jill extremely kind and friendly hosts, providing lots of chat, laughter and companionship but also respecting our privacy. It really was a great place for a relaxing holiday.

Jill and Julio are excellent hosts and their welcome 'hamper' in the fridge lasted us for nearly three evening meals. The Quinta das Achadas is a delightful place to stay and use as a base to explore the western Algarve We spent a week there and would love to return should we visit the area again. During the week Jill and Julio provided three very good evening meals which were shared with the other guests - very convivial evenings! Both Jill and Julio are extremely friendly and answered many queries. They set a very high standard and ensured that our first holiday in Portugal left us with a very enjoyable and lasting impression.

Room Tip: Mimosa is spacious,very well equipped,comfortable and is stylishly decorated.
