The lake at the Quinta is the perfect place to swim, relax and check out the inhabitants... There are 3 types of dragonflies to spot, a multitude of frogs, and even an elusive coot! At dusk you can watch the birds swooping low to snatch water and also the unwary insects. It is surrounded by reeds which filter the water, and also tiny fish who work hard to keep it clean.
If peace is what you’re looking, for Sitio do Lago is a perfect getaway. Our apartment was contemporary and calm, comfortable and sparkling clean. Surrounding hillsides are criss-crossed with paths where we rambled each day, before an afternoon cool-off in the lake and a spot of canoeing. Later we sat on wooden recliners with books and a drink, enjoying the frogs’ chorus and watching Otter, the extremely loveable dog, frog-hunting as swallows dipped and dived down to the water. Sue produces wonderful food which you can eat indoors, on your own verandah or under a magical pink pepper tree on the swimming pool terrace. Highly recommended. Thanks for making us feel so welcome.
