Press Release: New House in the Organic Orchard

Tavira / Zurich, January 6, 2015 – Quintamar Pomar has three bedrooms and supplements the resort Quintamar in the Ria Formosa Natural Park in the Algarve. The house has three bedrooms, a terrace with sea views and is located in an organic garden and orchard (in Portuguese: Pomar) with orange, lemon, fig, olive and various fruit trees. Anyone who wants can pick a fruit salad for dessert. You can see the sea from Quintamar and Pomar at about 500 meters’ distance. The historic town of Tavira is located just three kilometers away.

Quintamar, the house with four apartments and a natural swimming lake, has developed into a secret tip for holiday seekers in recent years. A year ago, Tamar, who runs the resort, acquired nearby land with a large orchard and started an organic vegetable garden. A brand new holiday house on Quintamar Pomar is now available to guests.

Views into the ‘land of plenty’

Quintamar Pomar has three bedrooms, a spacious living room with a view of the orchard and a modern, fully equipped kitchen. By an external spiral staircase you reach a roof terrace with views of the beaches and the offshore island Ilha de Tavira. The spacious sitting area in front of the house provides shade and comfort for relaxation and eating freshly grilled fish. The orchard with its sunny spots and shadows invites you to linger, with mouth-watering fruits at your fingertips – truly ‘land of plenty’. The vegetable garden is also run on biological principles. The Permaculture Project at Quintamar Pomar aims at self-sufficiency, as well as a truly ecologic environment.

Meals on request

If you prefer not to cook and would like to dine at home we can organise a caterer to cook freshly prepared meals with local products. Alternatively you will find in the fishing village of Santa Luzia, located just 300 meters from Pomar, a choice of many excellent restaurants offering local seafood.

Resort Quintamar – 4 apartments, 1 swimming pool, 1 Playground

Quintamar offers 2 apartments with 2 bedrooms and 2 houses with 3 bedrooms each, with terraces overlooking the sea and/or a private pergola. The special feature of Quintamar is the natural swimming lake, where plants clean the water in a natural manner, forming a biotope. The water depth varies from 50 to 190 centimetres. Gates to the patios of the individual apartments prevent unsupervised children from jumping into the lake. The entrance side of Quintamar features a small football pitch and a children’s playground with a pirate ship and a trampoline. Here you will find also an enclosure with Vietnamese potbellied pigs and goats in happy harmony with the chickens and guinea pigs, which are always happy for guests to feed them the kitchen waste.

Family reunions, weddings, groups

For family reunions, weddings or group holidays, the apartments of Quintamar and Quintamar Pomar can be rented together. In total 30 people can be accommodated.
