Quinta do Mel, the Honey Farm, is a great respite from the busy city of Lisbon. The staff made us feel welcomed immediately and we were treated like family. The location is peaceful, somewhat "zen", and was a wonderful place to return to in the evening after a full day of sight seeing. Each night we had a fresh thermos of tea (they grow teas at the farm), lemon verbina, camomille... all fabulous. The restaurant opens on 2 sides to the outdoor patio and seating areas where we would sip local wines and enjoy the night air. Be sure to take advantage of the breakfast, included with your stay, as each morning was truly a work of art as our breakfast courses included fresh fruits, meats and cheeses, eggs (local chickens!) and a special treat each day such as pancakes or their special version of french toast. Their coffee is excellent. Louis, the owner, could not have been more gracious and accomodating. The twins on his staff, Fabiula, and Fabina, took our hearts from day one. We will miss everyone from Quinta do Mel. Truly a magical place.
