Quinta do Bom Vento
Perched on its own 4 acre wooded valley, Quinta do Bom Vento (QBV) is a fully renovated small farm offering 5 stylish self catering ‘quintinhas’ perfect for short or medium stays (4 nights to 4 months).
All units, be they the smallest converted stables studio or the 2 bedroomed villa, have private entrances, their own dedicated terrace deck or balcony with BBQs, private bathrooms and kitchens with full ovens. QBV oozes rustic traditional Portuguese charm combined with designer comfort and modern essentials – luxury linens with electric blankets, gourmet coffee machines, WiFi, flat screen TVs (with Main English stations), pellet burning stoves and a dedicated guest laundry.
The relaxed rural setting is just 8km from Obidos and perfectly located for accessing The Silver Coast and beyond. Caldas is 15 minutes and the coastal towns of Peniche, Foz do Arelho, Salir do Porto all within 30 minutes. Numerous clients of Spencer Becks Estate Agents have used QBV as their home base whilst they searched for their forever home, and even 2 of Valerie’s lovely agents have stayed with us too😊
We are Rich & SAM Malone, (English and Scottish). After working for 15 years as Captain & Chef to discerning guests on high-end charter yachts around the globe it seems fitting that we made landfall in Portugal with its rich seafaring history. We purchased QBV in 2005 as a ruin, and after an (ongoing) 10 year+ renovation period have been living here full time for the past 6 years and consequently we have amassed a lot of connections. The extra dimension of staying at QBV is that we are more than happy to share our experiences with all our guests and introduce you to previous guests/friends who have also been on your journey. QBV has also welcomed 4 legged guests to their new life in Portugal, and our own 2 rescue dogs Scrabble and Bingo look forward to meeting new international friends too.
Most recent Trip Advisor Review from Spencer Becks/QBV American Guest 12 May 2022
“Sometimes the stars align and you find just where you need to be with the people you need to meet. That was our experience at Quinta do Bom Vento. We made arrangements early (a must) to stay there while we looked for our new home in Portugal. We wanted a place where we could have a “soft landing” and be able to ask questions as needed. We couldn’t have found more gracious, helpful, and fun hosts to guide us as we transitioned to our new country.
The apartment was fully stocked with everything one could possibly need. The decorations were only surpassed by the views of the countryside. You could stay in the fanciest 5-star resort and still not find what really makes Quinta do Bom Vento so special. It’s the people. SAM and Rich are the secret ingredients. They arrange opportunities to meet the other quests and form friendships. As with most journeys, it’s not the destination, but rather your fellow journey partners that make the difference. We feel truly blessed to have journeyed to Quinta do Bom Vento and met such amazing people. We are only allowed to give five stars ratings, but I guess that’s fine because a galaxy of stars would not be enough.”
