“Hidden gem with fabulous hosts”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016
person found this review helpful

What a find! Who knew when we booked a cheeky break that we would have such a fabulous week. Our apartment was one of several that make up Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV for short), an old farm that has been carefully restored and renovated, beautifully finished and furnished and lovingly stocked to create a home from home (only with better bed linen, fluffier towels and nicer crockery than we have at home!).

We had booked a studio and I was expecting something small and basic but was blown away by just how lovely it was. The apartment is spacious and comfortable and has it's own private patio. It's built on the site of the old wine cellar and the original wine press has been retained which really adds to the charm. It has been cleverly designed to make the most of the gorgeous views over the valley and to give a real feel of privacy and tranquillity.

However, what makes QBV special isn't the views, the Egyptian cotton bed linen, the locally sourced tiles (we liked them so much we went tile shopping!), or the interesting fixtures, fittings and furniture that make the apartment feel so personal but the lovely owners, Rich and Sam Malone. Their kindness, enthusiasm and happily shared local knowledge of where to go and what to see made this such a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. They made us so welcome and were such great hosts by the end of our stay they felt like old friends. We'll definitely be back for another week of sunshine, surf (some of Portugal's top surf beaches are a short drive away - and Rich was able to share local knowledge as turns out he's no slouch himself on a board), sightseeing (don't miss Obidos, Buddha Eden, a day trip to Lisbon or the dinosaur footprints) and sunning ourselves on the patio with a glass of amazingly cheap and delicious chilled Vinho Verde in hand.

Thank you Rich and Sam (and Scrabble the dog) for a great holiday.

And what a 'find' of guests were you! We are blushing with your praise but you are a GEM for taking the time to write such a gushing and lengthy review - we really appreciate it and hope to see you back here surfing, sunning and slurping Vinho Verde again. THANK YOU
