We stayed at Quinta Stuart for 3 days and it was fantastic! We were looked after very well by Stu and Owl and had a brilliant time. The food was fab and were made to feel really welcome. We will definitely go back if we visit the Algarve again. :-)

We had a great stay at Eco hostel. It provides a different holiday experience to the normal high rise hotels on the Algarve. Here you live close to nature and appreciate the resources we take for granted in the city. The Owl House was very comfortable with its own outdoor kitchen and patio. We loved watching movies while lying in...

I live in the Algarve, not a million miles away from Stu and Owl who have been my friends for many years.
