Welcome to Barril, Portugal
Casa Quintas is located in Barril, a quiet and small countryside village next door Ericeira;
a traditional Portuguese fisherman’s town that has become a surfers’ paradise over the last years. Casa Quintas is located between town and beach. The golden sand beach of Praia Calada is only 2 minutes away and the famous beach of Ribeira D’Ilhas is just around the corner.
The beautiful modernized Portuguese villa is found on a picturesque estate and surrounded by rustic vineyards and lots of fresh air. Offering eight luxurious rooms; all equally comfortable designed with private bathrooms and all of them have a phenomenal view. Every morning a delicious homemade breakfast is served. Relax in one of the garden seats or sip your cold drink at the pool and enjoy the sun.
Casa Quintas is the perfect getaway for every member of the holiday crew!
Stay in a spacious hotel-style room with comfortable beds made with fresh crispy linen. Private bathrooms with a walk-in rain shower. All equally designed and furnished with a perfect sense of style; earthy tones, natural materials and keeping the Portuguese elements alive.
Every morning we serve a different homemade breakfast dish with fresh and local products together with a fresh juice, good coffee, fresh fruits and delicious Portuguese pastries. On Sundays, we serve our breakfast feast!
The 10-meter pool invites you to swim some laps or just take a dip and cool off. The sunbeds are calling for a little siësta!
The casa is completely surrounded by a large garden with umbrellas and little seats everywhere to read your book, sip your glass of wine and enjoy the amazing view on the vineyards in the back of the house.
Get some cold drinks and salty snacks at the pool bar and enjoy the view from a cozy corner in the garden or from your private balcony!

This place is great! The rooms are of hotel quality; very modern, spacious and clean. The owners (a nice couple from the Netherlands) are welcoming and make you feel right at home. Their breakfast is locally sourced and made fresh every day, but their Sunday breakfast is a true feast.
