About Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV)
After living, cruising and working together on sailboats as Captain and Chef we have finally made landfall in Portugal. Much as we loved our life afloat we adore having the space to roam in our own wooded valley and feel the peace and tranquility at QBV has parallels with the freedom of ocean living too. We have named all the accommodations after bodies of water we have sailed in and although QBV is definitely a country dwelling, the ocean is only 20 minutes away.
Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) chose Municipality of Obidos
Why this Property? That is what so many of our friends and family have asked - they thought we were crazy as this farm was very rundown when we purchased it! But we stumbled across this property and the valley vista swallowed us, we loved the space, freedom and privacy this 4 acre farm offered and it seemed like a little village that needed to come alive again! And yet only 8km from the delightful Obidos and easy access to the beach (Rich is a surfer) and less than an hour to Lisbon airport, it seemed an ideal spot.
What makes this Cottage unique
Over the last decade we have slowly and painstakingly renovated the original farmhouse, barn, outdoor kitchen and stables to a standard well above what would be normally expected in a rental. We also live on one of the converted outbuildings and see all the properties as extensions of our home and wanted them to be places that our friends and family as well as paying guests could truly relax and comfortably use as homes away from home. The design of the farm buildings is unique in that each has a different orientation thus each accommodation has its own privacy, yet there is access to a central courtyard thus perfect for small groups or family who want to stay together but still have their own personal space.

High end luxury in rural retreat
Booked a cheeky long weekend in November for a birthday treat. We were expecting it to be cold and rainy but this lovely unspoilt bit of Portugal seems to be endlessly sunny and warm. But better than the sunshine was Qinta da Bom Vento - a sympathetically renovated farm where every detail has been thought of and nothing is too much trouble for the lovely owners Rich and Sam. Our apartment was beautiful and the view from our balcony over the valley and the olive groves was gorgeous - a perfect spot to sit and enjoy a glass of the amazingly cheap and delicious local wine. Lots to see and do and loads of great non-touristy eateries nearby. Loved it and already planning another visit - luckily there's another birthday to celebrate!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at QBV, you were the consummate guests. Our vision when creating this space was to provide a get-away for people like yourselves who appreciate the personal touches as well as the varied offerings of the surrounding area. We look forward to your return.
Romantic and private country getaway with world class hosts!
We absolutely loved our stay at Quinta do Bom Vento!
Sam and Rich are expert in all things hospitality and their talents sparkled in welcoming us for our honeymoon. From the first contact via email to our final send off (Thanks for the delicious homemade ice cream!) and everything in between, our experience with them was fantastic.
We stayed for 6 days in the Mediterranean suite and wished we could have stayed longer. The suite was spotless, neatly decorated, fully equipped for cooking (grill included!) private but not isolated and was perfect for a quiet country getaway.
We highly recommend a stay with Sam and Rich at Quinta do Bom Vento and can't wait to return to stay with them again.
And we are just so pleased and proud that you chose to spend your honeymoon in Portugal and of course at Quinta do Bom Vento.. We loved having some sparkling honeymooners to spoil in our 'honeymoon' Mediterranean suite. We hope you return too - how about every anniversary!? You were talented cooks and we are so glad that you found all the gourmet utensils and ingredients that you needed. Wishing you every happiness in your future together.
Urlaub im Paradies der nie vergehen soll......
The reception was so warm that you could feel right at home. Our little cottage was very stylish and lovingly furnished.
Sam and Rich you are so wonderful and loving and so unobtrusive. Your hospitality is so honest, whether the delicious tarts, the freshly baked bread or the fresh rolls in the morning were just great.
We felt a little bit like coming home. And we would like to come again.
Thank you so much for such a warm and fuzzy review. We are delighted that you felt so at home in The Mediterranean at QBV as that is precisely how we designed our cottages and studios.
We would welcome you both back again in a heartbeat - your bbq's always smelled deliciious:)!
