2014 Bookings

Happy New Year from us all at 
The Quintassential

So the New Year and January is upon us and 2014 is now in full swing and it is most definitely time to start thinking about that Summer Holiday you have been working so hard to reward yourself with!

Here at The Quintassential we are selling the main peak weeks very quickly, so you need to act fast to get the dates you may want.

July and August are now nearly sold out for our Orange Cottage, our large 2 bedroom accommodation. We only have the early part of July (4 nights) and latter part of August left.

We now for the latter part of July / early August only have our Lemon Cottage available, a one bedroom cottage that sleeps 2 adults and one small child. If this is your preferred time of the year to holiday, may we suggest you book fast as this availability will not be about for much longer.

The Algarve is a 365 day holiday destination, so holidaying out of season is good. The Algarve in southern Portugal is often better to visit out of the peak season months, it is much quieter and gives you the chance to explore the area even more. The weather can be just as good, in fact it can even be more pleasant than the blistering months of late July and early August.

As an additional incentive, we are also offering an Early Bird Special Offer, where if you book your 2014 or 2015 holiday before the 15th February 2014 then we are giving you 10% off the total cost of your holiday. This offer is not available for our Winter Warmer Special Offer, Birding and Walking Holidays or any already confirmed bookings.

So what are you waiting for get your holiday booked with us now and start looking forward to your well deserved rest and relaxation in the sun.
