100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
2 or 3 person holiday home for adults on the ground floor of small-scale accommodation Quinta Maragota. Originally, this part of the quinta was the living area of the farmer's family, which can be seen from the authentic Portuguese tile floors, renovated wooden shutters and the ceiling ornament in the hallway. Now it is a very attractive, comfortable holiday home, adjacent to a Mediterranean garden and close to the fishing village of Fuseta, the sea and the lagoons of the Ria Formosa.

The space
Accommodation (adults only 18+):
Small-scale accommodation Quinta Maragota, situated between fruit, almond and olive groves in the countryside of the beautiful Eastern Algarve and close to the beach (4km, Fuseta), offers 4 spacious holiday homes in an authentic Portuguese farmhouse, where persons from 18 years can stay with us. In this way we offer a place to people who want peace and quiet without children. The houses are suitable for a maximum of 2 adults, with the exception of Casa Antiga where a 3rd adult can stay (see one of our other advertisements). The quinta has recently been renovated (2020) and the houses are very comfortable in every season and smoke- and pet-free, minimum stay is 3 nights.

Layout of this 2-3 person holiday home (45m2):
Through a front porch (shared with one of the other holiday homes) you enter the kitchen, with ample storage space, various appliances, cooking and eating utensils. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious bathroom with toilet (via a small step), large washbasin, spacious walk-in shower and towel radiator. There is also a window for ventilation and mechanical extraction. Towels, beach towels and a hairdryer are ready. From the kitchen you enter a hall, which still has the original antique Portuguese tile floor and ceiling ornament. At the end of the hall, in the niche of the original front door, a spacious closet has been created for clothes and suitcases. On either side of the hall are two almost identical rooms, which can be closed off with sliding doors, also with antique tiled floors and old renovated wooden shutters in front of the windows. One of these rooms is furnished as a bedroom with a good bed (2 beds of 90x200cm, together a king-size double bed with a thin connecting mattress or apart if desired). The other room is used as a living-dining room. In the living-dining room there is a dining table, an armchair and a comfortable sofa (90x200cm) with movable backrests and various cushions. The sofa can also be used as a bed because it has a good mattress and slatted base. Therefore, this room can also be used as a bedroom by a 3rd person or if 2 people want to sleep in separate rooms. For both cooling and heating, air conditioners with cold/warmth exchanger are available in these 2 rooms. All windows in the house have double insulated glass and mosquito nets.

Adjacent to this holiday home is an intimate private terrace, divided over 3 levels with a fixed lounge platform, a dining and sitting area and both shade and sun. This terrace is adjacent to the common garden and is shielded by many (potted) plants for extra atmosphere and privacy.

Communal garden:
In our sloping Mediterranean garden (5000m2) which is playfully and attractively decorated, you can enjoy different colours and flowering plants and (fruit) trees in every season. To cool down, there is an outdoor shower and a lovely swimming pool surrounded by flowering plants, olive and almond trees. There are several relaxation areas created to be able to retreat into the sun as well as the shade, and to enjoy a snack and a drink alone or together with other guests, listening to the birds and the cicadas. The sunrises and sunsets and clear starry skies are often a pleasure to watch.

From time to time, we will provide an extensive lunch, drink or evening meal in the garden, because we like to socialise and cook, preferably with pure products from the region or our own vegetable garden. You can sign up for this when you are with us.

Surroundings:
The beach of the lively fishing village Fuseta is nearby (3km). From here, and also from the beautiful coastal towns of Tavira and Olhão (both 15 minutes' drive), there are boat connections to the paradise islands off the coast. The beautiful nature reserve Ria Formosa, with salt production, lagoons and many birds, is very close (2km) and offers many walking and cycling opportunities. There are also lots of nice restaurants, various shops, supermarkets and places of interest at a short distance. The nearest restaurant is a 20-minute walk away.

In September 2017 we left the Netherlands to find a nice place in Portugal to live and create our dream of a small-scale holiday home for adults. After a seven-month voyage of discovery through the middle and south of Portugal, we found our place in the beautiful quiet East Algarve, near the coast, in a hundred-year-old farmhouse (quinta) with 5000m2 of land. Here, in a few years time - with the necessary adjustments and modernisations while retaining the original character and details of this special place - we have made our dream come true and are offering guests four comfortable holiday homes since the end of 2020. We live on the quinta ourselves and are always available with tips about the area. Feel welcome!
