Accomodation Quintas de Moledos :history: Aljezur, Algarve, Portugal

History

Matthew, Olivia, Freddie and Georgie welcome you to ‘Moledos’.
We believe you will love it as much as we do.


After many years owning and running successful restaurants, bars and country pubs in the southwest of England, in 2003 we decided to take a break, and then whilst travelling around Europe we stumbled across this area of Portugal, it was the most beautiful unspoilt wilderness and with the Costa Vicentina Natural Park ensuring that this area will stay untouched forever we could not stay away and returned every year for our family holidays, then in the summer of 2007 whilst browsing in a local estate agents we saw Moledos, the crumbling ruins of a old farmhouse and outbuildings, surrounded by 5 hectares of beautiful natural countryside and endless possibilities - we had an idea to create a holiday haven - high quality self-catering accommodation,  a beautiful salt water swimming pool, woodland walks with activites for children and a peaceful place in which to relax and unwind.

It was obvious that a project this big meant we would have to jump in with both feet or not at all!! So we jumped, packed up the house and kids and in January 2010 embarked on our adventure…

Eighteen months of hard work later and our dreams are a reality!  Our idea of creating 4 luxury eco-holiday cottages and a home for our family is now a reality.

We have used some of the most advanced ecological ideas to help create well insulated, energy efficient houses,  including a biological fosse for the waste water and solar panels to provide hot water with heat exchange units to supply warm water for the underfloor heating and for limitless hot showers. Our aim was to create luxury accommodation in an environmentally friendly way - we think we have done it!

We hope you like it………….
