About Daniel Mountain
This villa is very much our second home. We tend to visit at least three times a year and we love the time we spend there.
Daniel Mountain purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Daniel Mountain chose Vale do Garrão
Most of our guests have stayed at our villa on many occasions and our aim is to ensure you have a fantastic holiday. We bough the property so we had somewhere we could stay and we have refurbished the property to a high standard to ensure it's a wonderful place to spend time.
What makes this Villa unique
As a family, we love the pool, the local restaurants and the proximity to the nature reserve and the beach. It's also great for those that like golf of just like to be pampered and enjoy the sunshine.

We stayed at 47 Quinta das Salinas in September 2018. The villa was fabulous – decorated and furnished to a very high standard with lots of personal touches. The kitchen was very well equipped and the pizza oven was a bonus. We had great fun making and cooking pizzas one night. We really enjoyed the large pool and the heating actually worked. Internet connectivity was important to us and the wireless worked well. The area is lovely and quiet and although the beech is reachable on foot we definitely needed the car. Overall a great holiday and a lovely villa to stay in. Looking forward to going back!
Our extended family (our young children and teenagers, our parents and ourselves) stayed in the villa for a month in August.
Organisation of the holiday starting from reservation of the villa till the last day was as easy and hassle free as possible thanks to the lovely owners. They replied to all my messages straight away and made our stay extremely pleasant.
Villa is spacious, tidy and light. Everything works. There are ACs in every room including the lounge (which is particularly helpful on the hot August days). There are a lot of toys, books, games and DVDs in the villa.
Swimming pool is big, clean, deep at one side and shallow at another. The pool guy was available whenever we had any requests. Swimming pool is gated which is fantastic for the families with young children.
There is plenty of very good equipment for the BBQ, Pizza oven etc.
The area is very secluded and quiet, however it is very close to the various fantastic beaches, supermarkets etc.
Our family would love to be back and would recommend this villa without hesitation!
Great modern villa
The villa was wonderful. Big pool with shallow end for kids. New modern bathrooms. All ensuite. Family room easily useable as another bedroom. About 7-10 mins drive from Quinta shopping and estate. The whole villa was contemporary, well equipped, clean and high spec. Would recommend.
Fourth visit, better than ever!
The Purdy/Payne tribe missed out on our annual trip to the villa last year as Dan was in the middle of a major refurbishment, so it was a delight for the 8 of us (six reasonably grown up grown ups, and two very grown up little ladies) to be able to renew our acquaintance with Quinta das Salinas. Dan's hard work has certainly made the place even more special, the bathrooms are now super deluxe and thanks to a change in local agent things seem to just be running that little bit better (pool cleaning and heating, gardening etc.).
It is a wonderful spot, very tucked away and quiet even in high season - this was our first time in the summer, we usually go in May, but delightfully it was no busier than our earlier trips. Walking every morning out on the nature reserve (1 minute out of the front gate, turn right) and towards San Lourenzo is always a delight ,and Almancil is perfectly located for stocking up on supplies (and in Apolonia, you have the perfect antidote if you are feeling homesick for Waitrose...).
Thanks Dan for another super trip, afraid its pretty likely you haven't seen the back of us yet....
A very relaxing holiday
