BFB's Overview

Jam packed, full of character and charm, Quinta Alfarrobeira is ideal for young families seeking to rediscover nature whilst enjoying a relaxing break from modern life. Nestled amongst ancient olive, fig and almond trees, the Quinta was originally founded in the 18th century and now offers family friendly accommodation in the form of two houses and three guest suites/rooms.

Enjoying a peaceful, rural location the Quinta has lovely gardens, terraces (some with unguarded steps) and grounds to explore. There’s an inviting pool (unfenced) perfect for guests hoping to while away the days under the sun and despite its tranquil setting days out are easy! There’s a sandy beach and the traditional village of Odiáxere close by whilst the bustling port town of Lagos is just five kilometres away.

The estate itself is owned by Theo, Inge and their sons from the Netherlands who've lovingly restored it to create an authentic yet bohemian style eco retreat. Whichever accommodation option is chosen guests feel instantly at ease. Days drift by unwinding by the pool, reading on the terraces and exploring the grounds. Curious offspring are bound to enjoy making friends with the onsite animals, collecting eggs from the chickens and picking their own fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs (when available) from the organic gardens. Top that off with an occasional pizza night courtesy of the traditional bread oven in the garden and families will find themselves experiencing a true taste of the good life on the Algarve’s south west coast.


Accommodation Overview:

A Granja is a very cosy house designed for small families of two adults and an infant. There is one double bedroom, a spacious bathroom with traditional Portuguese tiles, bathtub and shower. There’s a comfortable living area with a lounge, country style kitchen and dining area.

The house is surrounded by terraces, one under the ancestral ´Alfarrobeira´ (carob tree), one with view of the inner garden and the Monchique Mountains and a sun terrace. A Granja boasts a beautiful outdoor kitchen with barbecue.

Location Information

Inge and Theo are keen to see their guests supporting the local community and are always happy to point them in the right direction for everything from fresh baked bread to crafts. They also provide a folder full of tips and advice on the local area with special recommendations for families. The Quinta is approximately 75kms from the airport at Faro. Car hire is recommended but not essential as there is a beach in walking distance (approx 1km).

  • Very child friendly & owners were kind and hospitable - there was even a box of toys provided which kept my 3 year old amused for many hours. Toddler friendly swimming pool on site too.Review dated 17/09/2014

  • comfortable and quirky accommodation. excellent pool and peaceful and relaxing location. close to great beaches. hospitality unbeatableReview dated 05/06/2011

  • This is a beautiful setting and the hosts are incredibly welcoming. Egg collecting is great for young ones and the pool is nice, but it's not actually particularly baby-friendly (the little details like plastic plates/cups). If the weather's not good there isn't really anything to occupy a small one on site.Review dated 09/05/2011

  • We absolutely loved our holiday at the Quinta. Not conventionally "luxurious" (no unnecessary waste!) but an ethical, sustainable project with a wonderful atmosphere, excellent hosts, and above all a fabulous rest and escape for both kids and parents. It was luxurious in the feeling it gave us all! We are planning to go again!Review dated 06/06/2011
