There are few places on earth where it is so beautiful, that it seems that time had no influence. Quinta Paraiso da Mia is such a place and is therefore called the “best kept secret of Luz”. The Quinta is located in the western Algarve, the most southern region of Portugal, known for the unique and special light and the most hours of sunshine in Europe.

Unfortunately we do not allow any pets in the apartments.As an additional service we put a welcome-food parcel (at an extra cost) in your apartment on the day of arrival. This package contains fresh rolls, butter, jam, cheese, sliced meat, oranges, eggs, a bottle of still water, a bottle of wine, milk, yoghurt, Nescafe and tea bags.During your holiday it is possible to order fresh rolls for your breakfast. We will bring them every day to your apartment. Of course to make your stay even more convenient we also serve a highly recommended continental breakfast any time in the morning at the poolside.
The central feature of the resort is the sandy beach, flanked on the east by the imposing cliff of the Rocha Negra (Black Rock) and on the west by the rocks below the Fortaleza (Fortress). The sandy beach provides safe bathing, while in summer time a full range of water sports is available in the bay including sailing, wind surfing, water skiing and para gliding as well as boat trips for those who like to fish, watch the dolphins or discover the caves near the unspoilt Portuguese coast. Coastal paths run along the cliffs to neighbouring villages for those who enjoy walking.Whilst for those who prefer a quieter holiday, there are surprisingly few visitors during the milder winter months when the temperature rarely drops below 18 C and for the most part the sun continues to shine. The many locally owned restaurants and bars in the village provide a wide range of excellent cuisine based on good fresh seasonal local produce at sensible prices.
