Quinta do Mar is one of those rare finds in life; sumptuous surroundings, delightful location and wonderful hosts. This former adega (winery) in the fishing hamlet of Caloura has been tastefully renovated and brought back to life by its current owners Chris and Nick, resulting in a tasteful mix of modern living spaces and original features.
The Quinta was first opened in 2005 and offers guests secluded terraces and relaxing communal areas with short walks through the gardens to the 'nature trail' on the hillside at the rear of the property.
The winter guest lounge has antique Chinese furniture and hand-made Persian carpets and there is also a comfortable summer pavilion where guests can relax and enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, cake and biscuits, 24 hours a day. Full, cooked breakfasts are served in this stylish garden space, complete with 'honesty bar'.
There are delightfull outside terraces with views over the pool and small orange grove to the ocean beyond. Free internet is available in the shared guest areas.
There are four large en-suite guest rooms each with balconies and sea views, air-conditioning, TV, DVD players, music system and direct dial telephones.
* The minimum age of guests is 14 years
