Nestled amidst the bucolic greenery of the Algarvian Barrocal, Morgado do Quintão emerged in the early 1800s under the visionary stewardship of the Count of Silves. Steeped in history and resplendent with the untamed beauty of its surroundings, this estate has remained within the embrace of the same devoted family for generations.

These picturesque houses once imbued with echoes of the past, have been meticulously revived and renovated into tranquil country retreats. Drawing inspiration from fond memories of growing up on the estate, the innate beauty of simplicity in each dwelling has been embraced. Some are adorned with works of art from our family collection, while others boast a mix of contemporary curiosities, objects, and furniture passed down through generations.

With a deliberate and unhurried touch, we've embarked on the gradual transformation of our ancestral tapestry, converting three of our vintage houses, caretaker's lodgings, and cereal stores, along with our main residence, into genuine hideaways nestled within the embrace of our sprawling vineyards, olive groves, fig orchards, and almond trees. This endeavor serves as an unveiling of our unique concoction of 'tranquilidade,' a special blend of tranquility and serenity. Rooted in the tapestry of our upbringing on the estate, we have wholeheartedly embraced the inherent beauty found in the weathered timelessness of these structures, discovering perfection in their imperfections. For those who venture to visit us, these hideaways offer a sanctuary to unravel and rediscover themselves, beckoning them to momentarily depart only to return, drawn back by the allure of our serene haven.
