“Our 3rd visit, and still as great as ever....”
Reviewed August 28, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

Another fantastic family stay in Monte De Quinta, such a peaceful location, with beautiful views of the rolling hills of Alentja. When not spending time having fun in the pool, we took the 5 minute walk in to town, stopping off for a coffee and treats in the local bars and restaurants, and evening walks around town enjoying the sunset.
Our sons loved helping feed the animals each morning and evening (the goats were a favourite), and always made sure to bring back some fresh eggs, safely plucked from the hen house. Picking fresh oranges and making your own juice is a must.
For the grown ups there is a wide range of things to do, I loved the quad biking - hours through the countryside, and my wife enjoyed a relaxing massage.
Recommended day trips out -
South Coast beaches - pain free 1 hour drive - Gale our all time favourite
West Coast beaches - just over an hour away, lovely beaches away from the south coast crowds
Mertola is a well worth a visit - if not for the castle then just for the terrace restaurant over looking the Guidana River. A bit further is a great fresh water lake with a beach and cafe.
Evora is a beautiful old portugese walled city filled with history, and lots of great eateries. Not far from Evora are some megalithic stone circles - worth a stop off on the way from Evora.
Michaela and Nigel are always the perfect hosts, with the villas being perfectly equipped; games and dvd's for family evenings, bbq and outdoor seating, comfortable beds and clean ensuites.
We've been lucky to enjoy 3 summer family holidays here over the last 6 years, with each one offering something different for us all. Highly recommended!
