Vila Nova de Milfontes

A little while ago I took a (long) drive down south to the Costa Vicentina, with Zé Pequeno in tow of course. This was the first time I had driven so far on my own (on the wrong side of the road!!) and am still quite relieved that I made it home again in one piece… but that’s a story for another day.

But we didn’t drive all that way just to take a walk on the beach… the reason for the trip was to photograph Quinta do Monte, a beautiful home on the banks of a river available for rent throughout the year as holiday accommodation. And while the weather didn’t exactly do as I told it to, the location was absolutely stunning, the house was beautiful and homely, the staff were welcoming and I would recommend it as an ideal getaway with a turn-of-the-century hunting-shooting-fishing atmosphere.

If you are interested in finding out more about this spot or other awesome and varied accommodation options throughout Portugal (and Spain) visit Amendoeiras em Flor and have a browse on their site.
