Welcome to The Quintassential
. . . . . an oasis of tranquillity in the centre of the Algarve

The Quintassential Aerial View

A small family run cluster of 4 self catering holiday apartment cottages open all year round located high on a hilltop in the Algarvian countryside, 2kms north of the market town of Loule, 20 minute drive from Faro International Airport and a 10 minute drive from the beautiful Algarvian beaches and world famous golf courses. 

The accommodations are fully licensed with the required Alojamento Local (AL) licence as required by Portuguese law, which is required for all rentals large or small, guaranteeing our accommodations meet all safety requirements.

Originally The Quintassential dates back to the 19th century and was once a farmhouse that has been over the years thoughtfully converted to provide picturesque self catering holiday accommodations. There is a large heated pool, a hot tub spa Jacuzzi, especially nice under the stars and moonlight.  Children are welcome at The Quintassential and there’s a children’s play area and games area for their entertainment.  The Quintassential apartments have something for all age groups, our name “Quintassential” means perfection or class – it says it all.  We cater for couples, families and the over 50’s.

Our home from home accommodations are furnished equipped and decorated to a very high standard, with great attention to detail visible in all the cottages added with little personal touches, results in good value for money “special” holiday vacation accommodations, varied to suit all age group needs.   Our gardens are a flower, shrub & fruit tree filled haven of peace and tranquility where you can always find a quiet private area to read a book, relax and unwind, added with the breathtaking views of the Algarve coastline both day and night, this gives the Quintassential oodles of character, uniqueness and creates a warm friendly relaxing atmosphere for our guests. 

If you are looking for a quiet, tranquil retreat away from it all, but close to all local amenities, plus activities including walking, fishing and bird watching in the central Algarve. The Quintassential is perfect and is an ideal base to explore the Algarve from, whatever your age group.  We also organise tailor made bird watching and walking holidays.
