     Description 


The Quintassential is an oasis of peace and tranquillity perched high on a hilltop 1200 feet above
sea level totally fenced and accessed via electric gates overlooking the market town of Loule, only
10 minutes from the blue flag beaches of the Algarve and world famous golf courses and a 15 minute
drive from Faro International airport. The Quintassential Apartment Cottages are a small family run
cluster of self catering holiday accommodations catering for couples, families and the over 50’s.
The accommodations are fully licensed meeting to all requirements by the Portuguese rental law with
the required Alojamento Local licence (AL). Loule has everything one would need from a holiday with
endless restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, banks, shops, award winning traditional vegetable, fish &
vegetable market, famous gypsy market, historical buildings etc. There are also three restaurants
within reasonable walking distance of the Quintassential.

The Quintassential is open all year round so that guests can enjoy the 3000 hours of sunshine the
Algarve has to offer. We understand that with low cost airlines it may be better to travel on days
other than Sunday or Thursday, so we are flexible with our arrival and departure days dependent upon
already confirmed bookings.

The cottages are individual at the Quintassential, originally dating back to the 19th century that
was once a farmhouse and over the years has been thoughtfully converted to provide picturesque
holiday accommodations. One of the accommodations is occupied by the owners who are there to help,
but never infringe on your privacy. Our rustic home from home accommodations are furnished equipped

just what you need for a tranquil and relaxing holiday. The gardens at Quintassential, just over an
acre, are marvelous and are a flower, shrub and fruit tree haven of peace and tranquility where you
can always find a quiet area to read a book, relax and unwind. Added with the breathtaking views of
the Algarve coastline by both day and night, this gives location oodles of character, uniqueness and
creates a warm friendly relaxing atmosphere for our guests. If you are looking for a quiet,
tranquil retreat away from it all, but close to all local amenities, The Quintassential is perfect
and is an ideal base to explore the Algarve whatever your age group.

The Quintassential has a large heated pool area; the pool measures 10 x 5 m and sun loungers,

We are delighted to be able to offer an all year round very reliable Evening and Day babysitting /
child minding service for guests with small children staying at The Quintassential accommodations.

Everybody loves nothing more than a good family holiday, but as parents ourselves, it is sometimes
nice to have a few hours to ourselves to enjoy a quiet meal, have a night out and enjoy a few
drinks, maybe do some sightseeing and explore the Algarvian terrain which some children find boring,
or maybe you just want a few hours by the pool without the kids.

At home you no doubt have a family member or friend that you call to enable you to have a night out.
Here is no different and we are pleased to be able to offer the services of a very safe, reliable
and experienced lady for babysitting/child minding services for your children whilst holiday here.

The baby sitter lives and works here in Loule district. She is happy to care for children of any
age. She has over 25 years of experience looking after children from birth and works in pre-school
environments, worked in a primary school environment, but most importantly, is a mother herself.

Approximate times are required when booking and payment must be made to the babysitter at the end of
the babysitting/child minding in cash (Euros).

Should you be interested in pre-booking a day baby/child minding or an evening baby/child sitting
please email us for us to arrange the necessary giving us details of your preferred date(s) and
time(s). Remember, holidays are for the whole family and this service gives you parents the chance
of having a little you time.

The Quintassential would like to give you the opportunity to make your holiday with small children
run as smoothly as possible. Our Baby Welcome Pack service is designed to reduce the stress of
travelling with young children, reduce the amount of extra luggage needed and eliminate the
difficulty of searching for familiar baby products in another country. The Welcome Pack will be
ready and waiting in your accommodation here at the Quintassential prior to your arrival. Should
you wish to have any of the items available awaiting your arrival, all you need to do is fill in the
form and email us your requirements back to the Quintassential at least 72 hours prior to arrival
and we will arrange this for you. Simple and all adding to a stress free holiday. Payment to be made
on arrival in cash (Euros). Further information regarding this service can be found on our website.
