We finished our holiday to Southern Portugal with a four night stay at Quinta da Cebola Vermelha (the Red Onion).
The Quinta is located just outside Boliqueime and is a small boutique hotel run by a Dutch family. It certainly lives up to all the previous Trip Advisor reviews and the attention to detail was superb.
The rooms are big and airy and immaculately clean. The hotel has been sympathetically restored to the original farmhouse style and emphasises the 'Moorish' history of the area, even down to the availability of wonderful Moroccan Mint Tea.
Breakfasts were served at tables and consisted of fruit, yoghurt, croissant, bread, ham, cheese, eggs with freshly squeezed orange juice and copious amounts of tea and coffee.
Dinner is served three nights a week and we took the evening meal on one night of our stay which was delicious. There is a good selection of estate wines available.
Although slightly more expensive than other places to stay in the area the extra attention received made it worthwhile.
For visitors to this area who do not want to stay on the coast, this is a good alternative and highly recommended
