A little corner of paradise

ESTALAGEM QUINTA Jacintina is the newest five star hotel to open near Quinta do Lago. As the fruit of many years planning and hard work by Brian and Monica Pullin, the Estalagem, a unique establishment in the ‘golden triangle’, brings Eden to the Algarve.

Even though it comes under the name of a hotel, Estalagem Quinta Jacintina is more like a very large villa. Its 12 rooms, individually decorated and fully-equipped, offer their occupants a spacious area to relax in, and you can even have your breakfast served on your own private balcony or the hotel terrace. The stylish bar and lounge open out onto a beautiful terrace, which is shaded and boasts glorious views of the lush gardens as well as the heated swimming pool. Individuality is at the heart of Estalagem Quinta Jacintina, and the walls of the establishment are no exception, with beautifully hand-painted murals tastefully adorning each and every one.

Non-residents can sample the delights of the beautiful Estalagem, with access to the bar, lounge and exquisitely prepared dinners. The main priority for the staff is to make the guests feel as welcome as possible, with the choice of eating indoors, in the luxurious but unpretentious restaurant, or out on the terrace. The food will certainly not disappoint, as dishes are prepared by the talented chef using many ingredients grown in the hotel garden.

For guests wishing to remain informed, internet access is provided and for those who love to be pampered, there is a hair and beauty salon, home cinema as well as peaceful indoor garden. For the active person, a gymnasium has been constructed, so every type of guest is catered for. And do not forget the beach nearby!

• Estalagem Quinta Jacintina is a retreat for those seeking peace and tranquillity in a beautifully decorated and exclusive setting. To book your stay, or for more information, visit www.algarvehotel.co.uk or call 289 350 090.
