Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Quinta do Barranco da Estrada, Portugal, sleeps 26 in 10 bedrooms.
The essence of the Quinta is an intimate holiday retreat for peace and relaxation, ideal for groups, be they large or small. It boasts a blend of traditional hospitality, "International home-cooking" cuisine and a friendly atmosphere with excellent service. Self catering is not available.
Set in a beautiful lakeside location in southern rural Portugal, the Quinta is surrounded by unspoilt countryside with a wide variety of wildlife and rare birds in its gardens and surrounding countryside.
The Quinta has 8 double en suite rooms, a family suite and a honeymoon suite. It has 2 large drawing rooms with log fires, sauna, a roofed terrace, a vine covered terrace and various lawns within the 2 acre garden that drops down towards the water.
The lake, right on your doorstep and one of the largest in Europe (with an average summer temperature of 82ºF), is a refreshing (and unpolluted) change from the sea. But for those who like beaches, the Algarve, as well as the spectacularly unspoilt West Coast, is only an hour away.
Though close to the Algarve this area is relatively unknown, with a busy day being the sight of over five boats. In the summer, the Quinta's mature fruit and flower gardens lead guests down to the shore where a variety of water sports are on offer, overlooked by the lawns close to the water's edge. The Quinta doesn't need a swimming pool - it has one that's 36 kms long!
It's an ideal venue for a family, or a group of friends with or without children. It's safe and secluded in the middle of the country and away from the hustle and bustle of town life. The accommodation is cool and uncluttered, calming and without pretensions; the bathrooms are spacious.
Accommodation price for a short break from 2,470 euros. Accommodation price for a week from 6,500 euros.
No Agency Fees. All your dealings are direct with the owners.
