A little of our story
About our journey, we are Arjen and Mirte, originally from Holland. We share a passion for hospitality and travel that has carried us all over the world! Before arriving in Portugal we spent 5 years in Bali. There we built a thriving business, operating two busy hostels and a restaurant.
With the sense that it was time for us to settle down, we returned to Europe and made our way to Portugal. Quinta dos Corgos had been home to Mirte’s father Wim, known affectionately as the ‘Don’ of the Quinta since 1993. Don Wim bought Quinta dos Corgos many years ago when it was little more than a ruin. He lovingly rebuilt it, taking great care to protect the character of this authentic Portuguese farm.
A new adventure
As we were now ready for a new adventure, we began transforming the beautiful Quinta dos Corgos into a Glamping site and Bed & Breakfast. We set about giving our guests the opportunity to experience this unique and magical place.
A Quinta, which is the Portuguese word for farm, needs animals! Besides our 2 cats and 2 dogs, we would love for your to meet our extended animal family. We share this beautiful place with 2 donkeys, pigs, chickens, goats and guinea pigs. A Quinta also needs agriculture, and we take great pleasure in growing our own vegetables and fruits.
With spectacular views of this idyllic region, we are sure you will enjoy relaxing afternoons by the swimming pool, with sunbeds, a large lounge-area and hammocks. Between sunbathing sessions we invite you to enjoy a game of jeux de boules on the court under the cherry tree. In the evening you can relax your muscles in the wood-heated jacuzzi while taking in the amazing views.
We are so proud of what we have created here at Quinta dos Corgos and can’t wait to share this incredible place with you.
