'It looks like a town', my good friend Carlos said when we arrived at Isabel’s quinta. I nodded in agreement and was filled with joy. What a lovely walled place right in the centre of picturesque Almancil. The wind was softly caressing three palm trees and the flowers only added to the scene.
Fifteen minutes later, we were relaxing by the pool in the shade of an olive tree together with the owner, Isabel. ‘I wanted to turn this old farm into a unique and cosy space with plenty of privacy for my friends’. I smiled. On our way there, Carlos had told me that Isabel views hospitality as a friendly favour. ‘With a Portuguese soul, that too’, and she certainly pulled it off. Such eye for detail! All those Portuguese colours and tiles and shaded spots where you can spend hours enjoying the atmosphere.
Carlos and Isabel walked around the 19th-century estate and its two swimming pools while I took a peek at the apartments. Authentic, full of character and each one completely unique. I felt at home right away. A blue bed with a gorgeous knitted spread, farm arches and steps. Even the walls speak of bygone days. ‘Homey, isn’t it’, Isabel's voice laughed the silence away. ‘I'm staying!’, I cheered. Quinta Dos Amigos makes friends in no time and gives them a Portuguese home away from home.
