The good life at Quinta da Horta

With many years experience catering for our guests we have found that freedom of choice and flexibility can greatly enhance your holiday pleasure. With this in mind we have discontinued our all inclusive tariff and now offer our guests a bed and breakfast tariff leaving you the choice of either catering for yourself in our residents kitchen or pool side BBQ area. Eating out at one of the many excellent and inexpensive local tascas, beach bars or our famous harbor side sardine restaurants. Of course you may prefer to enjoy the home cooked organic delights offered by “the real naked chef” and her helpers served either at our pool side dinning area, or in the “Bare Bum Bistro”. As far as possible we use home grown organic produce and our menu changes daily. With prior notice we can incorporate dishes to accommodate special diets. Although we relish tucking in to our home produced roast pork we also very much enjoy many vegetarian dishes and until you have sampled fresh sardines grilled on a beach side fire you really don’t understand beach picnics.

We give below a sample menu of the delights on offer for our resident guests and naturist visitors.
