The Quinta da Saudade…..“a beautiful place to stay”
– Nick Knowles, BBC Holiday Hit Squad
The Quinta da Saudade is a small British-run estate of privately-owned villas occupying approximately twenty-four acres about five miles west of Albufeira.
Nestling in the peaceful country setting of an old hillside farm estate and set amid orange, almond and olive trees, the Quinta is about forty-five minutes drive from the Airport at Faro.
The nearest beach, less than two miles away, is a magnificent long stretch of sand, bounded by dunes, where it is always possible to escape the crowds, even in August.
There are two swimming pools, a children’s play area and pool, tennis court, restaurant and bar, mini-golf course, table tennis and petanque.
The Riding Stables at the Quinta have some fabulous horses that are available for gallops across the dunes or slow hacks through the countryside.
There are attractive country walks in the vicinity and there is a wetlands nature reserve nearby with a wealth of bird and plant life not commonly found in the UK. Purple Heron, Little Bittern, Alpine Swift, Bee Eater, Red Necked Night Jar, Azure Winged Magpie and more.
Casa Redonda is situated slightly away from the main group of villas. It has wireless internet
The villa is air-conditioned throughout and this is included in the rent except from November through till March when it is charged as is the electricity and logs.
It has an entrance hall/dining-room, a good-size sitting room, a twin bedroom and a bathroom with separate shower and electric towel rail.
The kitchen has a washing machine, dishwasher, fridge/freezer,
double sink, microwave oven, electric oven with eye level grill, and a hob with both electric and gas rings.

There is a forty metre long garden with terrace and built-in barbecue. There are tables and chairs for eating out as well as sun loungers and umbrellas. Bedding and towels are provided but not towels for the beach or pools.
The villa is for two people but an extra bed or cot can be put in for a child or baby at an extra cost.
The villa rental is inclusive of maid service, hot water and cooking gas. Electricity and logs are also inclusive, except during the low season when we charge a basic rent.

We wanted to thank you again for the wonderful time at the Villa Redonda last month!
It was for us the most beautiful holiday we have done so far!
We really loved it and were actually sad when the time was over.
In any case, we would like to come back! It was simply fantastic the only location of the lovely garden, the great horses ... just everything!
We can relax!
Thank you so much for this unforgettable holiday!

One week to go until we board that plane, can’t wait, thanks for all your help, you’re a diamond. As usual your commitment and service is impeccable.
I wanted to thank you because our stay at the Quinta da Saudade was exquisite. We were very comfortable and we really liked the whole complex and the people we met, they were all very friendly. Surely, someday we well repeat our visit to Quinta da Saudade.
At the weekend we came back from our beautiful holiday in Portugal. Thank you so much for this wonderful week we spent in Casa Redonda, it was just a perfect stay. You can really see that you look after the villa very intensively and care about its equipment.
We had a lovely stay at Quinta thank you. And thank you for always being there and responding so quickly to my little queries – I was very impressed! Don’t think I would have found the washing machine! Such a good send. We had the best of both worlds-privacy and yet company if we needed it. Maid service but not intrusive. Perfect! They were lovely. Loved the welcome pack – such a simple yet thoughtful touch. Thank you again for your fab service and we return one day!

We did enjoy our stay at Casa Redonda and must compliment you on this superb villa. It is very comfortable and is without doubt the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in. The garden is also well equipped with many beautiful plants making it a very pleasant environment in which to enjoy the sunshine – which I’m pleased to say was available in abundance for most of our 10-day stay. We do enjoy that particular region of the Algarve so I’m quite certain we will be in touch again before too long enquiring of availability – we are fully booked up for our 2014 hols, but 2015 planning is not that far away!!
Thank you so much for organising our holiday. On your courtesy, manner and efficiency alone I shall be highly recommending you to others and I shall certainly book with you again. I’m sure everything will be fine but good to know we can contact you. From all of my family thank you for all your very welcomed help.
We have already recommended the Quinta to friends and would certainly return in the future. Many thanks for your help making booking simple and stress free, plus responding to all the queries!
Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the Quinta da Saudade. It was your suggestion and it really fit what we wanted. The balcony on our villa was huge and so inviting. We would love to go back. Doubt we can manage it next year, but Portugal and the Quinta are now on our permanent list of places to go. Thanks again.
I just wanted to echo Rachael’s sentiments in the note she wrote and say a huge thank you for all your help with our holiday. We had the most relaxing and enjoyable time together you could possibly imagine and if we venture to the Algarve again we will undoubtedly be heading for Casa Redonda again! We were talking on the flight home and saying how we wish we could take it to all our holiday destinations! The whole Quinta resort though was fabulous.
Thanks you very much for your good wishes. It has been a pleasure booking with you and everything so far has been organised, professional and made very easy for us. We are all looking forward to the holiday next Saturday and I am sure we will have a wonderful trip. I would be delighted to recommend your services to family and friends. Regards
We had a great time at Quinta da Saudade and Casa Redonda was the special place, where we felt like at home. We got more then we expected and hope to come back to this place.
I just want to thank you again for all of your help in securing us a nice home for the week we will be in the Algarve. I mentioned it to Fernando how fantastic you were
We had a wonderful holiday at the Quinta da Saudade and I would like to pass on our thanks to you and the owners for such a great holiday.
We had a great holiday and thought that the accommodation was in a wonderful location. Thanks for your help with its organisation.
Hi Melanie, we had the most fantastic holiday, everything about the villa and the team who looked after us couldn’t have been better. Good golf and sun tans all round
India and I enjoyed the Quinta (the place and the people) so much that I really can’t remember having such fun. I just need to sort out a couple of things but hopefully will be back to you next week regarding booking!! It was also great to meet you I must say…and the info you gave us was excellent. You’re also a good fun person!!!!
We were all very pleased with the villa and I am under pressure to re-book for next year if available.
I have been telling all my friends and family about you and how great this holiday has worked out!
All arrangements and accommodation were superb, a fantastic villa and excellent location – everyone in the party enjoyed it. I appreciate all the help you have gave me with this over the time I originally booked it.
Had another super holiday at the Quinta and would certainly book through you again.
We had an excellent time, very relaxing, especially as it was so quiet there. We had no problems or complaints of any sort. The location was suitably peaceful for us and we thought that if we were looking for a second home in the Algarve it would be an ideal location for us, near a great beach, slightly away from the mass market tourist centres etc. We would be happy to return there sometime and will be happy to recommend the Quinta to all our friends
Thanks so much, the villa was perfect, the boys certainly had their money’s worth in the pool. It was in an ideal spot for everything and the weather was really good to us. Mum really enjoyed the holiday, we took our own portable wheelchair, but she managed quite well with her walking stick as we weren’t very far from the strip. I can’t wait to get back in October as I love it there. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone and have been singing it’s praises since we got back, it had all that we needed. Thank you so much.
We had the most fabulous holiday at the Quinta. My Mother in Law loved Casa Redonda so much she hardly wanted to leave it!! Absolutely perfect. We will definitely return, and book through you. Many thanks
Thank you for all of your help in supplying us with a fantastic Villa. The Transfers all worked out great. Every one involved was very professional which is greatly appreciated and very hard to find these days. We had a great holiday just sad to be back. Thanks again for all your efforts; we will be in touch again for our next holiday.
Thanks for everything Melanie. We were very impressed with the villa and had a wonderful time there. We will not hesitate to use your service again in the future and will recommend it to our friends. Thanks again
Paul and Sandie
We had a wonderful time in the Algarve. The villa was magnificent and the people were great. Thank you for all your help.
Thanks! We had a wonderful time. The Villa was really nice, it had everything you could want and was very nicely furnished. We would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend. The only thing I would have changed is the weather! Thanks
We had a great time, thanks. We’ll almost certainly go back to Albufeira in September and will definitely consider using you again. Best regards
Thank you so much for your help and efficiency (it’s very hard to find these days!)
We had a wonderful holiday thank you. We cannot fault the villa or the transfers. We will be making arrangements to do the same again next year. Kind Regards
Everything went really well, from the moment we landed to the day we went home. The villa was everything and more than we expected, the beach on your doorstep was fantastic. All in all a fantastic time was had by all, and we will hopefully be coming back very soon. Thanks for a great time
We had a great holiday, the apartment was lovely and bigger than we were expecting – not a typical holiday apartment, the organised lifts to and from the airport were fantastic as well, no hassle for us… I would definitely recommend you and your company to my friends for organising a trip to Portugal; in fact I’ve already done so. Thanks again for everything!
May I thank you for all the help that you have given, I will most definitely book with you again, and I will also recommend you to family and friends. Kind Regards
The holiday was fantastic and the accommodation was excellent. We were all very impressed by the accommodation and the service that was provided. We will definitely look to book with you again next year.
Melanie, we had a great holiday. The villa was perfect for us and everything was lovely. Thanks a million for all your help.
