It's a fantastic location for relaxing, complete with a very large area of water for swimming or boating. If like me, you want to go somewhere for bird watching or to photograph birds and butterflies etc, then this is ideal. You can go around the various areas either in a mini-bus with other like minded people, or by prior arrangement,...

We loved the scenery, the comfy bed, the hot showers, the food, Daniela, Archie, all the staff, and even Frank, who got us up so early to experience Southern Portugal's brilliant birds and nature. We met some lovely people (some lovelier than others!) and it was a unique experience with peace and relaxation at the heart of the warm welcome....

It is not every day you sit down to an excellent three-course meal in the company of 20 others ... all at one long table. The remote Quinta offers comfy bedrooms above a lake/reservoir in beautiful countryside with the chance of golden orioles in the garden. Owner Frank's bird outings for our small group included minibus visits to the coast...

Paradise in Portugal is incredible. Flamboyant Frank is in charge of the birding which he does sooooo well driving all over Southern Portugal and knowing where all the birds are that you want to see - found us a Crested Tit! He also knows all about cameras which he is very willing to share. Then there is the Delightful Daniela,...

A friendly communal set up, outstanding scenery and very peaceful. We spent a morning birding with Tony Cox on a local walk. Tony is an excellent, friendly guide, interesting and very knowledgeable. A relaxed time yet many species were seen including shrike, bee-eater, bunting, little owl, warblers, waxbill, linnets, azure magpie.... The Quinta is very remote and quiet, a lovely...

We spend a week birding with Frank and saw 116 species of birds. Each day we went to a different part of the country and we saw great birds everywhere. Frank is an excellent guide and a great ambassador for Portugal! The lodge was the perfect place to stay, very comfortable and in a very beautiful setting along the lake....

Every 5 years we select a place to celebrate our major birthdays (e.g. 55, 60, etc.), usually with a birding emphasis. This year we selected Quinta do Barranco da Estrada. We were looking for relaxation, good food, beautiful scenery, and of course, great birding. Frank and Daniela checked all those boxes and exceeded our expectations. The hospitality they showed us...

Upon arrival we were greeted by two very friendly dogs on the lovely path leading to "Reception". The view of the lake through the gardens was breathtaking. My room with a little porch was simple, clean, comfortable and quiet with that same beautiful view. The dinners were delicious and served at a large table, beautifully appointed with sparkling glasses, silver,...

Sometimes you come across somewhere quite unexpectedly lovely. It might be that the location is very special and the buildings and environment take maximum advantage of the natural splendour to turn it into a wonderful setting for a holiday. Or it may be that the people are brilliant at their job as hosts and their skill and expertise really enhances...
