“Wonderful villa, beautiful land, peaceful location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Quinta da Vila Maria is superb. The rooms are spacious and bright, the location is excellent, and it is peaceful and relaxing. Jane and Ed welcomed us warmly and are very knowledgable about the area. We did several hikes, visited Marvao, a local castle, and had an excellent lunch at a nearby restaurant. There is so much to do here, and it is off the beaten path from overly touristed areas such as the Algarve. If you have the chance to stay here, do not hesitate!!! Book right away!! You will NOT be disappointed!

“Wonderful opportunity to explore Alentejo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Jane and Ed work hard to create this delightful and restful B&B. They gave us so much help and advice and we loved our room and all we needed for a delicious self-catered breakfast. The Alentejo area has so much to offer - history, vineyards and wine tastinf, long, rambling walks in glorious countryside... We would love to return and hope very much to do so. Thank you Jane and Ed!

“A great apartment in an interesting part of Portugal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Our apartment was lovely with fabulous high ceilings and beautiful original floor tiles. This is a great spot for mountain biking, walking and for exploring the Northern Alentejo region. There are lots of amazing castles around too.

Ed and Jane were very welcoming and happy to assist and recommend some fantastic restaurants and places to visit.

We really appreciated the small details such as a welcome pack including lots of lovely stuff for breakfast.

It would have been great to have a pool, however there was a very impressive public pool within walking distance.
