Charming Cottages

"After sampling a home cooked meal at the Quinta, is it possible to have dinner at the property again tomorrow? We didn't plan it but we don't want to leave here - these women are the best cooks!!"                   

The Lewis Group

USA (July 2024)


"We had a lovely time at this villa – it’s a fun, elegant and very creative property. We loved the design and use of large windows to maximize views and light, bringing the outside in; as well as the wonderful infinity pool (one of the reasons for choosing this villa over others) with its surroundings of lavender, rosemary and trees, which we really enjoyed. We would like to ...

"We are LOVING the villa, it is so beautiful! Teresa has been incredibly kind and helpful; she even went to the market with us to help us find what we needed. We just got back from a few hours at the beach; we couldn't be happier, thank you. And thank you for organizing the bikes too - they are working out great!"

 "We had the most wonderful stay - it's a great house in a beautiful area of Portugal! I also want to mention the wonderful housekeeper Teresa, who assisted us wherever she could. Thank you for the good organization of our trip to Comporta."

"Thanks for all your help during our holiday. We had a really good time. The villa is stunning, and the housekeeper came often and was very friendly. My husband played golf twice at Troia Golf Course, he loved it. It would have been fab if a map was provided for the bike rides around the region - we were a bit hesitant of where and how far to go."

The Pattison family

UK (July 2018)


"We had the most wonderful 2 weeks. The house has a great layout making it spacious and comfortable. The pool and lounge area on the roof are spectacular. Lounging poolside with the sound of waves in the distance was the best. Being able to walk to the beach in 10 minutes was also divine. Beach restaurants Sal & Sublime are very close. Overall a perfect stay. Thanks also to chef Sandra R...

"We had a wonderful holiday: we loved the Comporta coastline and the kids had a great time in the waves and on the beach. The restaurants were fabulous and we found everyone so friendly and helpful. The villa was absolutely beautiful and a great space to live in and enjoy."

 "We had a lovely holiday in Comporta and found it very easy to book through you - the communication was fine and instructions were clear. The only but I would add, is that the 'welcome hamper' was a bit disappointing. Thank you."

"We had a great time at this villa and loved exploring the area. We were sorry to have to leave early (due to kids' sports schedules) but hope to return again sometime. Please thank the owners and cleaner too. The house is beautiful and we especially enjoyed horse riding on the beach and riding bikes from beach to beach in Comporta!"

"We had a truly wonderful stay . The house exceeded our expectations - an amazingly beautiful home in a fabulous location. We loved every moment we stayed there, such a special place, so peaceful and relaxing. Our whole family loved exploring the area whether it was going to the beach, horseback riding, biking, yoga, shopping and enjoying wonderful meals in or out. Local manager Paulo an...

"We had a lovely time. The villa has a great blend of style and simplicity, and the garden is very cleverly put together to give a feel of abundance and seclusion. Lina and her friend who cooked for us were lovely and the cleaners very smiley. Thanks to AB Villa Rentals and the Concierge team. We had a tough year and the villa and Comporta were a great tonic!"
