Quinta do Mel

I love the feeling of the wind in my hair. I had left the coast behind and was driving a scooter through the stunning Portuguese countryside. Suddenly, I heard a loud bang. I stopped by the side of the road and found the problem. A flat tyre! Bummer! What to do? Luckily, I noticed an interesting house at walking distance. I was almost there when a man approached. It was Luis, the owner of the hotel. He knew someone who could help and would give them a call.

Luis invited me to wait at the tea salon of the hotel, where he treated me to some herb tea. He also has all kinds of honey, cheese, wine and jam in addition to many delicious herb tea varieties. All home-made! Delicious! I would be able to taste them all and buy some at the hotel store if I wanted to.

I was enjoying my third cup of herb tea with honey when Luis approached. The tyre had been fixed. Already? My reaction made him laugh. He suggested that I stay for a few nights. It is a hotel, after all. What a great idea! To stay and enjoy their delicious products for days to come.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
