The Quintassential is open all year round so that guests can enjoy the 3000 hours of sunshine the Algarve has to offer. We understand that with low cost airlines it may be better to travel on days other than Sunday or Thursday, so we are flexible with our arrival and departure days.

The cottages are individual at the Quintassential, originally dating back to the 19th century that was once a farmhouse and over the years has been thoughtfully converted to provide picturesque holiday accommodations. One of the accommodations is occupied by the owners who are there to help, but never infringe on your privacy. Our rustic home from home accommodations are furnished equipped and decorated to a very high standard, with great attention to detail visible in all the accommodations together with little personal touches resulting in good value for money special holiday lets and varied to suit all age groups.

The gardens at Quintassential, just over an acre, are marvelous and are a flower, shrub and fruit tree haven of peace and tranquility where you can always find a quiet area to read a book, relax and unwind. Added with the breathtaking views of the Algarve coastline by both day and night, this gives location oodles of character, uniqueness and creates a warm friendly relaxing atmosphere for our guests. If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil retreat away from it all, but close to all local amenities, The Quintassential is perfect and is an ideal base to explore the Algarve whatever your age group.

There is a lot of space for children to play and to discover nature, play with Alfie, Max and Indie our children loving dogs; we have three dogs, one very old cat and two miniature pigs in total.

We are delighted to be able to offer an all year round very reliable Evening and Day babysitting / child minding service for guests with small children staying at The Quintassential accommodations.

Everybody loves nothing more than a good family holiday, but as parents ourselves, it is sometimes nice to have a few hours to ourselves to enjoy a quiet meal, have a night out and enjoy a few drinks, maybe do some sightseeing and explore the Algarvian terrain which some children find boring, or maybe you just want a few hours by the pool without the kids.

At home you no doubt have a family member or friend that you call to enable you to have a night out. Here is no different and we are pleased to be able to offer the services of two very safe, reliable and experienced ladies for babysitting/child minding services for your children whilst holiday here.

Both carers live and work here in Loule. They will both be happy to care for children of any age. Both carers between them have vast experience in looking after children from birth to 13 years of age, either having worked in pre-school environments, been a private nanny, worked in nursery schools, but most importantly, both are mothers.

Approximate times are required when booking and payment must be made to the babysitters at the end of the babysitting/child minding in cash (Euros).

Should you be interested in pre-booking a day baby/child minding or an evening baby/child sitting please email us for us to arrange the necessary giving us details of your preferred date(s) and time(s). Remember, holidays are for the whole family and this service gives you parents the chance of having a little you time.

The Quintassential would like to give you the opportunity to make your holiday with small children run as smoothly as possible. Our Baby Welcome Pack service is designed to reduce the stress of travelling with young children, reduce the amount of extra luggage needed and eliminate the difficulty of searching for familiar baby products in another country. The Welcome Pack will be ready and waiting in your accommodation here at the Quintassential prior to your arrival. Should you wish to have any of the items available awaiting your arrival, all you need to do is fill in the form and email us your requirements back to the Quintassential at least 72 hours prior to arrival and we will arrange this for you. Simple and all adding to a stress free holiday. Payment to be made on arrival in cash (Euros). Further information regarding this service can be found on our website www.quintassential.com
