After entering the "muddy-road" to the Quinta Tranquila, our adventure begun.
We met a lovely couple, who raised a beautiful home and an accommodation for people, who like the nature and the tranquility.
Rob and Cate helped with every matter, whether information about Odeceixe and surroundings, the best beaches and restaurants, or to celebrate a birthday! (Thanks again ;)).
You can explore the area around the wonderful lake, go for a swim, chill out in the hammock, sit in your lounger on the terrace and enjoy the view above several flowers, plants and trees.
The Quinta Tranquila is well equipped. You can easily prepare your breakfast or dinner (little skills to handle gas stove plate and oven needed :D).
The bed is very comfortable and prepared with a mosquito-net, just in case there are some.
If you enjoy tranquility and the nature, this is the perfect place for you. Cate and Rob created something special and beautiful and we're really glad we found this hidden paradise!
Thank you Cate and Rob! :)
