Ideal place for a quiet getaway

4.8 on April 14, 2011

A beautiful old Quinta with welcoming hosts. Rooms very clean and well maintained. Breakfast is outstanding with Fiona's fresh baked bread everyday fresh, organic eggs plus yoghurt, meats and cheeses. Evening meals can be requested all cooked by Fiona who is a trained chef. Winniehill is in a quiet location but close enough to local towns. The view from the pool terrace is gorgeous. We would highly recommend this b and b.

Lovely Villa

About the innkeepers

My name is Fiona, . We purchased our home 4 years ago. I am a professional chef, and worked in a country house hotel in Scotland for 10 years before moving to Portugal, so I would be happy to cook evening meals and enable you to taste some of the fantastic local fish from the fish market in Olhao. My husband is a Scottish PGA golf professonal, so any help with your Golf.
