Quinta da Alegria is a beautiful villa beside the baragem (lake) do Arade and is suitable for a maximum of 16 people but also very comfortable for smaller parties. The villa lies beside the lake and is surrounded by a hilly environment, more or less 8 Km from Silves.
In the centre of the lake lies a small island from which you have the possibility to practice all kind of watersports, such as waterski, jetski, bodyboard, canoe. The region also provides the possibility to go mountainbiking or nice walking tours. Should you rather admire the breathtaking region on top of a horse, that is also possible. Quinta Alegria lies in the region where the "medronho" trees grow.
The "medronho" is a very colourful fruit which is used to produce the local "firewater". This is a very popular drink in Portugal.The villa is divided in two floors and each floor has a well equiped kitchen. Each floor has four bedrooms, and each room has satelite television with a good choice of channels. The ground floor has three bathrooms and the top floor has two bathrooms. All rooms have two big single beds, except for one room which has a romantic double bed and own bathroom and a view over the lake. Each livingroom has a fire place, big television with DVD and large diningtable. In the garden you will find terraces with lazy chairs, a B-B-Q and a large swimming-pool (6 x 12 metres). This villa has a special medronho salon where this drink is served from the original alambique (still). This room also has the possibility to give presentations, play a hand of cards or pull a drink.
There are several terraces with beautiful views of the lake, which in the summertime lays low but during the winter season can get very close to the villa.

Great gett away place
Great place to chill and to relax. We came with 8 people and the lady owner was amazingly helpful and we were overwhelmed by her welcoming approach. After we arrived in Faro we rented two cars and that was a good idea , as the final leg to the villa is a compacted gravel road but ok to drive. The Villa is great, clean and in excellent condition .Eight independent bedrooms and attached bathrooms. Perfect for our two families. We had a lot of fun in the garden and the pool. The water of the lake that is 10 m off the garden was clean but a bit too cold to swim at this time of the year. warm. The open fire place on both levels of the house were soo cozy in the evenings. For our food we shopped in Silves at Aldi, Lidl and Continent and so we really had a great time in this lovely quiet area. Will come back next year.
Beautiful house in a beautiful setting
The house is beautiful and so is the setting, right next to a reservoir with no other house in sight and lemon trees all around it. It's perfect for a relaxed holiday, with nice walks around it, a very cozy swimming-pool with views over the lake and a nice party area for the evenings. It's a bit far from other places (~11 km. to Silves) and a good 30 minutes to the closest beach (definitely more than 15 km.). The last 2 km. of the road are unpaved and very bumpy, so getting from and to the house is not easy. It was 16 of us (2 couples) and we loved the place. We would love to go back in the future.
