“Wonderful retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2012

The Quinta is a little haven tucked away in the most wonderful location in the picturesque town of Alcochete, on the southern bank of the river Tejo estuary.

Once you walk through the main gate in are in the world of the Portuguese country home of long ago. It is a must for all those who want to experience a real Portuguese country home. Yet Lisbon and all its attractions are only a 25 minutes bus ride away.

The old buildings have been very sympathetically maintained and have adequate modern facilities. Our room was very spacious a comfortable.

The generous continental breakfasts included cereals, tea, coffee and juice, lovely fresh bread, ham and cheese, toast making facilities, butter jam and marmalade

We loved the secluded gardens and the courtyard and all about it really!
Be prepared to be pleasantly surprised but don't expect hotel facilities as the Quinta is not a hotel - it is someone's home and they let you share it.

Wow! This place was home away from home (and possibly even nicer). The room, garden, breakfast, pool, surrounding area - this place had it all. It is a bit "vintage" looking from the outside and may even be overlooked by most people - but that would be a mistake. The rooms were furnished with antiques and while the bathroom was a bit dated - the rest of the room made up for it two-fold. The garden area (orange grove and other fresh fruits/vegetables) is open to guests to stroll in day and night - and is well worth it - so peaceful and relaxing. The pool is the older stone bottom style versus the standard blue paint, which just made it all the more inviting. The staff was friendly, warm and despite some language barriers - pleasant to deal with. The breakfast (fresh orange juice daily from the grove) was fantastic and included. Then comes the little village - quaint, quiet, yet alive with locals Good food (fresh fish), good people, and full of charm. Additionally, the nearby mega-mall (Freeport Outlet Mall) is a nice little jaunt from the center of town and has even more local restaurants to sample. This review can go on and on about this little place...but I'll conclude with this: worlds better than staying in Lisbon and given the chance, I'd return tomorrow.

Room Tip: We booked a superior room, which was just big enough to move around, but not so large as to get lost...

The place has a lot of charme. Nice swimming pool but not really sunbeds near the pool to relax. Village is lovely and there are some nice and affordable restaurants.

We stayed at Quinta da Praia das Fontes during our much anticipated dream holiday in Portugal. After spending two weeks in a private villa rental home in the hills above Tavira in the Algarve, it was difficult to leave the south and travel to the Lisbon area. However, I must say that we we were just as pleased with Quinta da Praia das Fontes and loved the quaint community of Alchoete! The staff was fantastic - and truly made us feel at home! The apartment was well appointed and met our needs. Our children loved the game room - and the opportunity to meet and play with other kids. The town of Alcochete was friendly and welcoming - we especially loved listening to beautiful fado music at Senor Fado's! A lovely experience!!

Quaintly old fashioned in style & service, but all the more charming for it. Beautiful courtyard layout in historic finca. Room functional & comfortable, breakfast excellent, definitely the preferred stopover in Alcochete.
