A beautiful stay in nature; so green and lush. Ben was one of the most hospitable hosts I have ever met! The neighbourhood is so friendly – You will not be disappointed! and can’t forget lovely Larry (Lenny) the dog x



Our stay at Quinto do Figo Verde was one of the best holidays we’ve ever had. Ben (and his canine sidekick, Lenny) are fantastic hosts. Ben is always on hand with advice on places to go, information about the area, a funny story and a great personality. Our children were completely enamoured with Lenny, who was always willing to lay down and be pampered. The tents are beautifully decorated and arranged with all of the things that are needed. The kitchen, shared with other guests, is well-appointed and it, along with the outdoor dining/seating area, were the centre of lazy afternoons and wonderful evening meals. Ben’s ‘Pizza Night’ (with pizzas cooked in his hand-built wood-fired oven) was a definite highlight; as were the pancakes and passion fruit curd (passion fruit from Ben’s plants). Every morning, Ben makes breakfast and it is always a great way to start the day. Travelling with children can sometimes be a bit trying, but the range of things to do at Figo Verde, combined with the places to visit, meant that our children were seldom at a loss. Whether playing badminton, bouncing on the trampoline or sitting with Lenny, they were never bored. As a host, Ben goes out of his way to bring his guests together. Spending time with them at meals, over a coffee in the morning, or simply sitting for a chat, he made our stay (and that of the other guests) feel like we were staying with friends we’d known for years. In addition to all of the above, Ben is also passionate making Figo Verde into a beautiful, natural environment. His work on clearing and planting, while still in their infancy, is clearly going to result in a place of uncommon beauty. If you are looking for a special holiday in a natural setting, you need look no further than Quinto do Figo Verde. Thanks Ben (and Lenny)!!!

A lovely cottage in a great location with a friendly and helpful host. The house is bright and nicely decorated and had everything we needed, and our baby loved crawling around in the garden. The suggestions for restaurants etc were perfect. We had a great time. Highly recommended.
