Geforderte Mindest-Aufenthaltsdauer: mindestens 1 Monat
Originally from Scotland and England, my partner and I travelled and lived overseas for 10 years finally settling in the far most Western corner of Europe where we started our family. We were drawn here to Lagos, Algarve, by the desire to renovate my parents old Quinta with the view to turning it into a guest house. It is a labour of love! The property is situated on 2.5 acres of land and there is always work to be done in the gardens. We have a 400 year old olive tree, a formal Italian garden, an orchard, a Mediterranean dry garden and a Zen garden for our yoga shala.
Fraser is mad about all thing bikes, preferably mountain biking but loves all kinds of cycling. Chantelle prefers life at a more sedate pace with yoga and meditation important past times. So when they are not at the Quinta you would probably find Fraser on a bike and Chantelle on a yoga mat! Or as a family you will find them hiking, travelling, SUPing or beaching.
We are 4km from the pretty beach village of Luz and also 4km from the historic town of Lagos with its many stunning beaches and grottoes.. Both great for all kinds of water activities such as surfing, kayaking, SUPing and sailing. There are literally over 20 stunning and peaceful beaches within a 20 minute drive from us.
We have bikes people can use to cycle down to the beach or if wanting to explore further afield a car would be useful. Local buses also run from the Quinta to both Luz and Lagos.
