“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

9 of us (adults) stayed at Quinta de Barreira in early October, and it couldn't have been better. The house is beautiful. The downstairs has a nice kitchen, large dining room (the table seats at least 14) and a wonderful living room with leather furniture. Upstairs are 5 bedrooms, all of good size, and 4 baths. The master bedroom suite is spectacular, with a huge en suite marble bath and a balcony.

The outdoor space is especially nice. There is a small courtyard off the living room with a table and chairs, a wide area in front of the garage with lime trees and a beautiful pool. The grounds are maintained daily and are beautiful.

The property is in a vineyard, and for us that was an added treat. The vineyards are visible as you drive up and you can visit the cave, which are behind the house. The vineyard office is next to the house, which makes it extra convenient to buy their excellent wines.

The owner is gracious and very helpful. He arranged a wonderful cook for our group who made 4 amazing meals for us. He also recommended some places to go including a wonderful restaurant in the ocean side town of Iriceira.

The house is located in a rolling wine growing region about 30 km north of Lisbon. There is not much nearby, but the city of Torres Vedras is about 15 minutes away and has groceries and other stores. The location is ideal for day trips. We went to Sintra, Obidos and Tomar, each in less than 75 minutes. Central Lisbon is only 30 minutes away.

We have had the chance to stay in rentals in Europe and the US a number of times and would rate Quinta da Barreira as our favorite.

“Could be fantastic,but!,”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

This was a beautiful villa,set in lovely gardens with fruit trees.Unless there have been great improvements to last year,the description,bears no relationship to our experience.I agree that the French couple,were delightful and could not do enough for us,however the owners attitude stank! He actually accused us of breaking into his private locked cupboards,we did no such thing! We were only searching for space in already available cupboards, there was NO space to store our food as all cupboards were FULL of their stuff,even dirty trainers in the kitchen! Promised items such as bikes etc were NOT available,one of the reasons we booked. There were a myriad of maintenance issues,the worst being electrical faults( again ,the owner said that we had deliberately,broken them . Categorically not!) the tiles around the pool area were cracked and broken,causing cuts for both grandsons. The guard dogs barked all night every night keeping us awake.Such a shame It could have been marvellous.We would have gone back if these issues had been addressed.But sadly our advice to the owner,was perceived as a malicious attack and therefore we will never go back!

Merci beaucoup d'avoir pris le temps de poster votre commentaire.

Nous sommes vraiment surpris par la critique et nous sommes désolés d'apprendre que vous n'avez pas apprécié votre séjour dans la Quinta.

Nous ne comprenons pas pourquoi vous ne nous avez jamais contactés pendant votre séjour pour nous faire savoir que vous aviez des problèmes. Il n'aurait pas été difficile de demander à la gouvernante de visiter et de veiller à ce que le nettoyage soit conforme à vos normes. Elle aurait aussi pu fournir l'équipement de cuisine que vous vouliez. Il y a une porte vers la vigne; Si vous vouliez marcher autour du vignoble, vous auriez pu utiliser la clé de la porte.

Cela aurait été bien mieux si vous pouviez signaler vos problèmes alors que nous aurions pu aider à les résoudre.

Merci encore.
