30m2 queen studio with living area, private tiled shower room, kitchenette with 2 ring gas hob and fridge, and private elevated terrace. Perched on the slopes of its own 4 acre wooded valley, QBV is a traditional Portuguese smallholding now fully renovated. Tasteful traditional Portuguese touches and lots of modern well equipped flourishes results in a stylish unique holiday base. The Adriatic studio is the upper level of the original farmhouse so the views from your terrace are expansive.
The Adriatic (we held back from calling it the AdriATTIC) is the fully converted upper floor of the original farm house at Quinta Do Bom Vento. This is the first season that this comfortable character filled apartment is available. The open plan studio design of 30m2 has its own private bathroom, fully equipped kitchenette then a queen sized bed with small dining and dressing tables and open hanging wardrobe with shelves. 2 comfortable chairs allow you to take in the stunning valley views through the floor to ceiling windows on the rare occasions you aren't out on your elevated private tiled terrace sunbathing or having a bbq. A glass wind break ensures that you can enjoy this space even if the village of Bom Vento (Good Wind) is living up to its name.
There are a total of 5 separate accommodations at QBV all fully converted from their original farm use. All can be accessed via an inner courtyard where you can linger if you want to be social, but all have their own private outdoor spaces and give plenty of freedom and privacy when wanted too. There are gardens and 4 1/2 acres of private wooded valley for stretching the legs and these lead to more trails if you want to extend your hike without leaving QBV.
Interaction with guests
We live in one of the converted barns so are available for answering any questions to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We used to work in the hospitality industry aboard luxury yachts so we have lots of experience of understanding when people want company or peace.
Other things to note
We have 2 rescue dogs - Scrabble and Bingo. Both are overly friendly black lab crosses - one more retriever, the other more a pointer. They aren't roaming freely all the time, but are not averse to joining you on your walks if you want them to go too!

QBV is a non smoking small holding. There is plenty of outdoor space if you must.
After living, cruising and working together on sailboats as Captain and Chef we have finally made landfall in Portugal. Much as we loved our life afloat we adore having the space to roam in our own wooded valley and feel the peace and tranquility at QBV has parallels with the freedom of ocean living too. We have named all the accommodations after bodies of water we have sailed in and although QBV is definitely a country dwelling, the ocean is only 20 minutes away.
