The essence of the Quinta is a small, intimate, holiday retreat for peace and relaxation. It boasts a blend of traditional hospitality, "International home-cooking" cuisine and a friendly atmosphere with excellent service.
Set in a beautiful lakeside location in central Portugal, the Quinta is surrounded by unspoilt countryside with a wide variety of wildlife and rare birds in its gardens and surrounding countryside.
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, it's relatively unknown, with a busy day being the sight of over five boats, and in the summer the Quinta's mature fruit and flower gardens lead guests down to the shore where a variety of watersports are on offer, overlooked by the lawns close to the water's edge.
But if you want to be active there's plenty to do - sailing, canoeing, fishing, swimming and walking and there are a variety of speciality courses on offer, notably Birdwatching, (and Nature Loving in general), and Shiatsu massage.
The Birdwatching is guided by the resident owner, Frank McClintock, and covers the whole of southern Portugal, while the Shiatsu is undertaken by Daniela Hentz of the Hara Shiatsu Institute of Vienna."
The Quinta is also suited to large families or special interest groups looking for exclusive private accommodation.
But whatever your interest - however you like to "get away from it all" - for total relaxation in a truly idyllic part of the world there are few places to rival Quinta do Barranco da Estrada.
