This small farm offered a delightful and hospitable stay in south-west Portugal.

Vitor (the owner) is highly welcoming and a great cook. The breakfast is generous and delicious. You can also opt to have a home made evening meal - 4-5 courses with wine for €25.

It is located a ~3 minute car drive from the main road and a further 5-10 minutes to the slightly larger village of Aljezur.

One can also take local walks and use the available bicycles but I cannot comment on this.

Overall a great location to explore the southern west coast of Portugal.

Our stay at Quinta Pero Vicente was the highlight of our travels up the Atlantic coast.

Set in the heart of the Alentejano and its coastal National Park and just a few minutes walk from the dramatic coastline; the surrounding countryside, with its mixture of forest, scrub (which in May was blanketed in colour) and agricultural land, was wonderful.

The 100 + yr old accommodation was traditional and comfortable, with an interesting library, Portuguese fabrics on the bed and hand-made lace on the shuttered windows. Vitor (who speaks excellent English and German), was an impeccable, well-informed and cultured host; passionate about his country and ready to recommend great places to visit, whether for dramatic scenery, hiking, wildlife, flora & fauna, geology, historical excursions, hidden places or dining.
On the subject of food, after reading another review of the accommodation that strongly recommended having dinner here (prepared by Vitor and his mother), we did just that and it was without doubt one of the better gastronomic decisions we've ever made.

We were served a sumptuous, traditional seven-course banquet of the freshest meat, seafood and vegetables - much of it sourced by Vitor, along with personally selected wines. The Stalked Barnacles, which neither my partner nor I had before tried, were unforgettable and at first, admittedly a little challenging (and the stories told of their capture and the traditions and importance of this dish to the area were fascinating). The instructions on how to consume them were also essential and we learned that the dish is an expensive delicacy in the restaurants of Lisbon and London! The meal was a real treat and great memory to take away with us (and less expensive than most of the restaurants we visited). The breakfast, taken outside on the covered patio was delicious, with local breads, butter, juice, fruit, cold meats, pastries and a different dip, jam or honey each day.

The location was easy to find and there are a couple of lovely trails from the house, one leading to the ocean that was very beautiful and varied and magical when taken early in the morning before breakfast. The accommodation is within walking distance of the short but stunning Esteveira trail described in Julie Statham's 'Walking in the Algarve' book (second edition - the first was by June Parker and was then revised) published by Cicerone press. Vitor is happy to provide local maps and guides to assist you.

As you have perhaps gathered, we're really delighted to recommend Quinta Pero Vicente and look forward to returning - just hope it isn't all booked up now!

My partner and I rocked up at 4:30 am after a boring night drive from Lisbon. When we finally arrived we were greeted by what I can only describe as ‘probably the most awesome dude in Portugal’. Vitor made us a cup of tea and gave a brief run down of what we could do in the area before asking us what time we wanted breakfast. Of course there was only us there, so he was probably a tad more flexible with breakfast time. The room was perfect. Excellent amenities, comfortable beds, plenty of space and good shower. The plumbing is a self contained composting system so no tissue or anything unnatural down the loo, which is sometimes hard to forget because it just looks and acts like a normal loo, and because the place is so beautiful it’s quite easy to oblige to such a rule.

So the morning (ahem...afternoon) arrives and Vitor has put the most awesome breakfast spread out, homemade farm delights. I won't give too much away because it's worth the surprise, but this happens every morning, and it just got better. There’s loads to see and do in the area with plenty of literature dotted aroud the place, but Vitor is encyclopaedic with his knowledge of, well almost everything and I’m sure he’ll offer you his opinion on where to go or what to do if you’re unsure. Free bikes also make the area easy to explore.

The slow pace and beauty of this place made our 3 nights seem much longer. It has been my favourite visit to Portugal so far and I just can’t recommend this place enough.

We stayed for a week and we loved! The service is excellent and very familiar. We were greeted by Mr. Victor who offered us useful information from the vast area. The nearby beaches are very beautiful and in the wild.
We made holiday with our dog, which was very well received, thus making our stay very quiet. Wonderful breakfast, homemade and full of good things!
No doubt a place to come back!

Vitor the owner and his Portuguese Sheepdog welcomed us enthusiastically and gave us lots of helpful information about the area, hiking options, beaches, restaurants, etc. The rooms are simple, clean and very quiet set within the family home. There is plenty of space to relax both indoors and outdoors (including a few hammocks in the shade) and an honesty "bar" - basically a fridge with cold drinks and space for guests to store a few things.
Vitors breakfasts were fantastic with lots of local produce and a wide selection which varied daily including fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice, cheeses, meats, cakes and breads. He even produced cornflakes and scrambled eggs one day which my husband really appreciated.
We had dinner at the B&B one evening which I highly recommend, the food was excellent and just kept on arriving, along with an aperitif, chilled wine and local firewater. It was definately the best dinner we ate during our entire holiday in Portugal.
The local beaches and cliffs are reached along sandy woodland paths (around 15 minutes walking time) and the views are spectacular although I would recommend good walking shoes for climbing down to the beach as the tracks are a bit vague and crumbly.
The nearby towns of Aljezur and Odeceixe are lovely and peaceful (even in July) and the surfing beaches are well worth a visit with plentiful free parking and local services.
I didn't intend to write an essay but this place is so good that it deserves to be discovered.
