Quinta da Palmeira – Country House Retreat & Spa

Quinta da Palmeira – Country House Retreat & Spa

Plan a holiday and enjoy the relaxing laid-back lifestyle of the Portuguese countryside, with an added personal touch. We offer personal service and attention to detail in the peaceful quiet of beautiful Portugal. A balanced mix for both, for nature lovers and bon vivant.

Shady spots in a beautiful garden, a pool overlooked by tall palm trees, and a full bar. This is beauty and comfort in the Serra do Açor region.

Quinta da Palmeira is designed to make you feel right at home. All our stylishly decorated rooms exhume peace and quiet. Our living/sitting room leads to a charming patio, the staircase features a modern stained-glass window and our dining room, with warm yellow walls and aubergine upholstery, opens onto a veranda from where you can observe village life as the Portuguese live it.

And you´ll be happy to be dining with us: our menus are daily prepared with only the best & carefully selected fresh local products from the farmer’s market and from our own herb & vegetable garden. You can expect gourmet food but with a down-to-earth attitude. Our wine cellar offers an excellent selection of regional and national wines.

And enjoy our luxurious private Spa with Jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and a fireplace.

The owners, Jack Brouns & Ana Volcarte.
