The beauty of this villa is that it is away from the hubbub and mania of the seaside resorts. Up here in the hills you find the real Portugal. We used the villa this time for a cycling trip. My husband Mike and our friend Maurice did 5 rides varying in length from 45 miles to 80 miles. Sheila and I provided the vehicle back up and joined them for coffee and lunch. The scenery was stunning. Most days we were able to count the number of cars we saw on the fingers of one hand. Then the joy of returning to the villa in the afternoon to enjoy the heated pool, a barbecue on the terrace or simply to sit and enjoy the views. The villa is finished to the highest standards and you would have difficulty finding anything to improve on. We will be back.

“Lovely Farmhouse style villa surrounded by picturesque Portuguese countryside”
Reviewed August 9, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a perfect villa for families and friends. The villa is large and easily sleeps 10. Great BBQ area on the patio, as well as a much larger then average pool, which can be heated in the cooler months. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedrooms are all a good size. The main bedroom has it's own roof terrace, just right for those G&T's in the evening.
A car is required as the nearest town is just a few minutes drive away and there are various restaurants within a few miles of the villa. All in all, it is a very relaxing spot and I am sure we will be back again before too long.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Huge spacious rooms onto large sun terrace and beautiful pool. Very comfortable with large modern bathrooms. Great place for exploring new areas and local beaches. Many local restaurants within easy drive away. It had everything you need for a relaxing holiday in the sun.

“Perfect villa for a large family holiday or with a group of friends”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at this villa as a family, and also previously with groups of friends. The rooms are all good sizes with plenty of bathrooms meaning no quibbles! The pool is perfect and can be heated if the weather isn't quite as warm as hoped, meaning it can be used all the time. There is a great outside dining area which means we were able to make the most of the weather in the evenings when we stayed in, which wasn't often as there are several good restaurants in short driving distance from the house. We had a couple of days down at the beach, Fusetta being a must if you're visiting. Have always had a great time staying here and will be back here next year hopefully!

“Great villa for couples, friends and families”
Reviewed December 30, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

person found this review helpful

I have stayed at Quinta San Antonio three times now, once with family, once with friends and once as a couple and every time it has suited our needs perfectly. It’s unusual to find such a large and well-equipped villa that has been able to keep plenty of Portuguese authenticity and charm. All of the bedrooms are large, spacious and pristine but the upstairs bedroom is particularly impressive with its large bathroom and its own outdoor space overlooking the hills. As a runner, I found the area particularly beautiful to go for an early morning run or sunset walk and the locals extremely friendly.

The villa is great for those looking for a relaxing holiday and big barbeques by the pool or meals in traditional but varied restaurants in the local town. The chicken piri-piri place in Sao Bras is incredibly good value and after 20 years of visiting the Algarve, I’m yet to find better! If you’re looking for something a little more to do, you’ll probably need a car, we ventured to Loule for the shops and market and Vale do Lobo for some more upmarket restaurants and some livelier bars, which were good fun. As the villa is only 20 or so minutes from the airport it’s relatively easy to get to so I’m already planning on returning in 2013 for a long weekend.
