Quinta das Cortes is a very spacious, comfortable, peaceful and relaxing villa set within a large garden with private swimming pool, situated in the rural area of the central Algarve region of Portugal, between the historic capital of the Algarve , Silves and the market town of Sao Bartolomeu de Messines. The villa's elevated position in the foothills offers fabulous views to the South and the coast, whilst the large grounds ensure guests their privacy.
The villa offers accommodation for a maximum of 4 people. It is furnished to a high quality, including some elegant antique furniture and has a very home from home feel with a charming Algarvean farmhouse ambience. The high ceilings and traditional terracotta floors enhance the calm of the interior.
Located only 40 minutes from Faro airport the villa is an ideal base from which to explore all the Algarve - 20 minutes to the coast, 10 minutes to golf, 25 minutes and the famous Algarve shopping with its designer shops, cinema, food court and huge supermarket . Right on the villa's doorstep are the rolling countryside with its fantastic views and walks. Perfect for family or friends to spend time together and enjoy Portugal. Please check out our own website for more detailed information and photographs.
Highly recommended - beautiful house and very relaxing

We spent a very relaxing week here in early September with another couple. The house is beautiful and in a quiet, rural location. Lots and lots of space inside and out. House itself is charming and very comfortable. Kitchen is excellently-equipped so ideal if you're self-catering (though there are also friendly, traditional places to eat locally). Great pool big enough to enjoy a swim (as opposed to just a quick dip). All very clean and well maintained.
Overall, I recommend it very highly

I have stayed at Quinta das Cortes a number of times with friends, family and just my husband and it has always been a truly memorable holiday.
The Quinta is beautifully equipped and we have always found everything we needed. The gardens are substantial and, again, beautifully maintained and the pool always offers a welcome place to cool down in the summer heat!
There are many beaches within an easy drive - either the calm waters of the south coast or the rougher breakers of the west coast and the near-by Silves provides some excellent restaurants and beautiful architecture.
The Quinta has a lovely calm feel to it and is not overlooked at all - great for topping up that tan!
I would recommend it wholeheartedly.
Un cadre magique

We spent two excellent weeks in the Quinta do Cortes! The exteriors are splendid, a sea view in the distance as a bonus! The villa is comfortable ... We enjoyed the outdoor kitchen with a breathtaking view and the presence of the cat (we wanted to put in our suitcases)! The pool is extra! We highly recommend this vacation rental where management is irreproachable! Michael, Axel, Sebastian and Matthias.
Nous avons passé deux semaines excellentes dans la Quinta do Cortes! Les extérieurs sont splendides, une vue mer au loin en bonus ! La villa est confortable, néanmoins elle mériterait l’installation de la climatisation au moins dans les chambres... Nous avons beaucoup apprécié la cuisine extérieure avec une vue imprenable et la présence du chat (que nous voulions mettre dans nos valises)! La piscine est extra! Nous recommandons vivement cette location de vacances où la gestion est irréprochable !!! Michaël, Axel, Sébastien et Matthias.

We had a fantastic 10 day stay recently at this villa, what a fabulous property. The pool was a hit with our two children as was the resident cat! The villa is very well equipped having everything you need for a comfortable stay, from lilos to cool boxes. The welcome pack that was left had all you needed to get you started on your holiday. Very peaceful surroundings with a massive garden and superb outdoor seating area which looks out to a beautiful view. Despite the rural location we were still within a 20 minute drive to the coast giving us access to some fantastic beaches and coastal resort towns. There are plenty of supermarkets/shopping centres and Silves is a very well serviced town. The villa was attended by a maid who keeps the place very clean and tidy, and the pool was cleaned regularly. Communication with the owner/property manager was spot on. Well worth a stay!
highly recommended - very rural, quiet location

Wonderful. We had a fabulous week here. The kids loved the pool. The house is full of lovely furniture & has plenty of space. A huge well equipped kitchen, large fridge & pantry area. Outdoor patio/BBQ area and pool, lots of outdoor space to explore. It is remote, quiet, rural and peaceful (until the boys got in the pool!). The villa was exceptionally clean & they left a good welcome pack for us. It has electric shutters for security, great too for black out. No air con, but the fans were fine for us. We would recommend to anyone who doesn't mind not being on the coast. Silves, a 15 minute drive away, is a lovely old town and we had some of the best meals we've had in Portugal there. Things to note - there is a €20/25 housekeeping tip to be left for the maid. There is a resident cat (which our boys loved to feed and watch), it doesn't go in to the villa but it does like to sleep on the patio. The owners/caretakers were all very helpful and we had no problems at all during our stay, we hope to go back one day.

We enjoyed so much our stay in this wonderful villa. Everything was perfect: the bathrooms, the kitchen, the equipment, etc. And what a tasteful furniture... The children had so much fun in the pool... Beautiful garden too... Just great! Recommended for: Families with Teenagers.
