Set in open countryside Quinta das Barradas has wonderful views of the Monchique hills. The soundtrack here is birdsong, a gurgling stream and the wind rustling through the trees. The emphasis is on nature, relaxation and peace of mind. There is a natural biological pool, fed by the fresh water streams, where no chemicals or other artificial products are used. Enjoy relaxing poolside in the tree dappled shade or wander the pretty gardens. There are plenty of calm spots where you can catch up on your reading or doze off in the sunshine, the air perfumed with herbs from the Quinta's herb garden.
