Quinta da Nava do Lobo is a lovely single storey house with excellent en suite bedrooms in two wings around a huge and elegant living space, which offers a large dining area, a seating area around a large open fire (which in cooler times of the year, such as when we were there, is wonderful), and a TV area. There are eight bedrooms in all, which can be booked separately or together if you have a large enough group. There is also a well equipped kitchen attached for those who want to do some self catering, as we did on a couple of nights. We were a group of eight adults visiting the area for an orienteering competition for 5 days and for us the house was exactly what we wanted. It is elegant, comfortable and beautifully located in very quiet countryside with marvellous views over the neighbouring hills. Every morning we enjoyed a varied and full breakfast of fruit, different types of bread and croissant, as well scrambled egg and bacon, in as much quantity as anyone could want, with of course very good coffee, tea and fruit juice. Beatriz and Miguel also asked if we had any special preferences and they were very happy to supply anything we asked for.
Outside the house there is a wonderful south facing terrace with seats to enjoy the sun and the rock garden which drops down into an olive grove and fields. To the side of the house there is ample parking and at the other side of the house a large swimming pool with tables, chairs and loungers to relax with.
This is a perfect location in which to spend a quiet relaxing holiday, with hosts who offer a very high level of hospitality. It was significantly better in quality than many others we looked at. All of us in our party would visit again if ever the opportunity arises. It offers excellent value and we will recommend it to all our friends.
