Beautiful house in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay in this beautiful house. Sergio and his father were exceptionally helpful before and during our stay. I very much hope to be able to come back, and would recommend Quinta do Mirante to anyone.

Three years in a row!

  • 5 of 5

"It was the third time we stayed at Quinta do Mirante. Again, we felt very welcome at this gorgeous villa. It is beautifully located at the top of the hills, overlooking Tunes. There's a lot of privacy and tranquility over there, but the busy town of Albufeira and the excellent beaches are only 15 minutes away. Everything you might possibly need in a villa, is present there. You get a really warm welcome by the owner and his father. It felt like coming home for us!!!

It's a really good place to stay and explore the overwhelming Algarve. What you see in the pictures, is what you really get.

We will certainly go again next year!"

The best accomodation we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

We cannot thank Sergio and his family enough for making our trip to Portugal the most amazing holiday ever.

From booking QM, we have received so much information and details on the gorgeous villa and it was exactly as it seemed in real life! The views are just incredible as are all of the amenities.

Sergio made the villa feel just like home with all the personal details and even leaving us specialities as gifts! Plus daily tips by text on the Algarve!

I have so many gorgeous pictures which I will be putting onto the Quinta do Mirante's facebook page.

We will be returning and we have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend this gorgeous, home away from home.

Thank you again Sergio and family for making our first visit to the Algarve a memorable one and we cannot wait to return!

All the best,

Rebecca, Scott & family

"We truly enjoyed our stay at the Quinta do Mirante and can recommend this accomodation. Sergio and his parents look after their guests in a very personal manner and we felt at home from the minute we arrived. The house offers everthing we require and is ideally located in central Algarve, quick and easy to get to all parts of the region but still remote enough to have a relaxing time away from crowds and noise.

Sergio, thank you very much for everything, we wish you all the best and hope to see you again."

  • 5 of 5

"I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Quinta Do Mirante, the villa was very simple to find from Faro airport following the detailed directions from the owners. It was also spotlessly clean on our arrival, we found decor both stylish and comfortable and perfect for our large group of holiday makers. With stunning views of the Algarve and beautiful sunsets, we found ourselves spending most evenings relaxing by the poolside whilst BBQing, the perfect retreat. Although there is a lack of local restaurants, with our rental car, the bustling town of Albufeira was only a ten minute trip away and the scenic coastal town of Guia was only minutes away too. I would definitely recommend Quinta do Mirante to any friend and I hope to return myself. Overall a great find and a great holiday!"

Sehr schöner Familienurlaub !

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Woche im September 2017 in der Quinta do Mirante. Die Aussicht ist sehr schön und man kann abends wunderschöne Sonnenuntergänge direkt von der Terrasse beobachten.

Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt, alles top sauber und alles da was man sich wünscht. Viel Platz für alle - wir waren zu fünft aber das Haus bietet bequem Platz für 8 Personen. Auch ist das Schattenplätzchen hinter dem Haus sehr hübsch als Lounge hergerichtet. Das Haus ist wirklich nicht weit von schönen Stränden und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (10-20 Min.). Es gibt sehr viele kleinere einfache aber sehr gute Restaurants in der Nähe !

Kleiner Verbesserungsvorschlag - auf der Terrasse nach Süden wäre mehr Sonnenschutz (Jalousie / Markise) nützlich. Er wurde auch im Sept sehr warm dort.
