1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
Portimao, Faro District, Algarve
Quinta do Arão is an organic citrus farm, nestled in a tranquil valley that forms part of an ecological reserve in the Algarve, Portugal. It is only a 10 minute drive from the nearest beach, Meia Praia and a 15 minute drive from the historical sea-faring town of Lagos.We are well placed for Palmares Golf course, A Rocha bird sanctuary and Vale de Ferro Horse riding center. The cottage is ideally suited for a couple and has wonderful views over the orange orchard. Wake up to the sound of various bird calls or the gentle tinkling of the bells as the goat herder passes through our land.

We had the pleasure of staying at Quinta do Arao in October last year. A beautiful farm, very well appointed accommodation, and the owners could not do enough for us. The weather was superb, the pool is sparkling clean and refreshing. Truely a little piece of heaven where you can get away from it all and yet have the beaches with Portimao and Lagos just a short drive away!!

About the neighborhood
Arao is an ancient village that was first founded by the Romans who established wine farms and wheat fields in the area. It is a small village that boasts it's own indigenous bar and restaurant where lively traditional Portuguese dancing occurs every Sunday evening. It is recommended that you hire a car as the nearest market is in the next village a few miles away. We are about 3 miles from the beach and there is a horse riding center just up the road. Kite surfers, golfers, wind surfers, surfers, horse riders, ramblers and scuba divers could not be better placed.
