About Sue and John Kelly

John and Susan Kelly are new owners of Quinta De Nora, but previous visitors will remember the property with Home Away. As the property was very popular before, we will not be changing much other than updating in certain areas.

We have a holiday let in North Yorkshire, England, and have been holiday letting it for the past 14 years, so will be bringing this experience with us.

As we intend to stay at Quinta de Nora for the winter as we are retired, it should be a home from home, and we look forward to welcoming you to stay with us.

Sue and John Kelly purchased this villa in 2016

Why Sue and John Kelly chose Barão de São João

Quinta da Nora is a truly lovely place situated over 100 metres from a quiet country road to experience nature, light and amazing fauna, with lovely views in a quiet area.

You will need a car , as there is plenty to do in the area.

Help yourself to fruit & nuts while you are there.

What makes this villa unique

Wonderful vacation from our vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at the villa. Clean and spacious, quiet and private yet close to all Algarve sights.

We enjoyed relaxing by the pool, reading on the patio, using the BBQ, and dining in the local villages. A beautiful property we'd be happy to return to if only to read books from the house library. We share similar tastes in reading material and have travelled to similar destinations.

Ein großzügiges geschmackvolles Anwesen für eine Gruppe von Freunden oder Familie

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderbarund liebevoll eingerichtet, für 6 Personen mit 3 Schlafzimmern und 2 Badezimmern- Wohn- Essraum, große Küche mit allem Equipment. Das Haus ist umgeben von einem blühenden Garten mit Palmen mit verschiedenen Aufenthaltsbereichen . Am Pool gibt es Liegen, einen Bereich, wo man grillen kann mit einer Art überdachter Bar. Es gibt dort auch noch ein windgeschütztes Plätzlichen, wo man ebenfalls essen kann. Gefrühstückt haben wir oft vor dem Haus, nahe der Küche und mit oder ohne Sonne, je nach Lust und Laune. Pool und Bettwäsche/ Handtücher werden wöchentlich gereinigt; eine Waschmaschine gibt es im Schuppen. Geschäfte und Restaurants gibt es leider nicht in unmittelbarer Nähe, ein PKW wird benötigt. Zu der Algarve (Süd) sind es ca. 10 Km , zur Westküste ca. 20 Km- also perfekt, auch für wanderlustige. Insgesamt ist das Ferienhaus uneingeschränkt (für motorisierte) zu empfehlen.

Spacious, cosy house in a beautifull part of portugal

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Quinta da Nora from 14 untill 22 of august with two teenage daughters . The house has a lot of privacy, is spacious, well equiped, clean and cosy. Communication wit h the owners goes very easy despite they live in England. If you want to see something of the surrounding you need a car. We recommend LUZ car, you can pay cash and there are no extra costs! We made many trips to the westcoast of the Algarve, we love this area because the coastline and the nature is rough and the villages are authentic. Beaches are also beautifull but the water is cold and the sea can be wild, so if you want a more relaxed place to swim we recommend Praia dos tres Irmaos, near Alvor. We had a beautifull holiday in a perfect house in a part of portugal were it feels like haeven on earth!!
