My husband and I have been staying at "Quinta do Martello" for the last few years. It is a very relaxing place, and takes you back to simpler time in life. All their produce is grown on their property and is organic, they also raise their own animals, the beef is grass fed. Breakfast is simply wonderful, and all their meals are traditional dishes. They also have great amenities, swimming pool, tennis court, and fitness center, to name a few. We always look forward to coming back each year to be able to get away from the big city and listen to nature.
