The Quinta has been built and run by the present owners over the last 35 years and has built and sustained a prestigious international reputation.
The reason for sale is approaching desire for retirement and downsizing now our children have left home, but we are not in a hurry.
The fact that the property is totally off-grid enables very low running costs and the possibility of reducing these even further during the closed season.
Privacy is guaranteed as there is no passing traffic and therefore a complete absence of man-made noise or pollution.
However, the property is less than a twenty minute ride from a main line station and less than 100 kms to Faro International Airport.
