Family FriendlyChildren are welcome and we do everything possible to ensure that families with children have a holiday that is both fun and relaxing. We understand that holidaying with children and babies can be stressful at times from deciding what to pack or not, to sleeping arrangements, and protecting them from the sun. With children of our own we know how important it is to keep kids happy and entertained on holiday, within a safe & secure environment.
The Quintassential is totally fenced & accessed via electric gates, so a very safe place. There is a lot of space for children to play and to discover nature, play with Alfie, Max and Bentley our miniature labrador puppy and Henry and Sebastian AKA "Bagel & Sebbo, our miniature Vietnamese pot belly piglets.

There’s a whole range of activities for young ones from the fantastic Zoomarine where you can swim with the dolphins, to Aquashow the best water park in the Algarve, Family Golf park in Vilamoura, karting and all the water activities on the fabulous Algarve beaches and highly recommended sea dolphin watching, a truly superb day out.

The accommodations are all separated from the pool area; the pool area is enclosed and gated to give parents of toddlers that extra piece of mind. All the baby/toddler friendly accommodations also have fencing around their terraces for the added security.

We have something for all age groups with a children’s play area available, designed for little ones, situated on a large lawned area. There is a slide, swings, see-saw, playhouse, toddler slide, toddler trampoline etc, this area adds an exciting dimension for all the visiting children, and keeps them occupied for hours. There is also a seating area for adults to relax, unwind and top up their tans. For older children (and adults) we also have a Cornellieu professional size table tennis table and a 12ft trampoline with safety enclosure.

For babies we have baby paddling pools to use on our pool terrace, or your accommodations private terrace, and we have endless buckets and spades to take to the beach.

We are delighted to be able to offer an all year round very reliable Evening and Day babysitting / child minding service for guests with small children staying at The Quintassential accommodations.

Everybody loves nothing more than a good family holiday, but as parents ourselves, it is sometimes nice to have a few hours to ourselves to enjoy a quiet meal, have a night out and enjoy a few drinks, maybe do some sightseeing and explore the Algarvian terrain, which some children find boring, or maybe you just want a few hours by the pool without the kids.

Child CareAt home you no doubt have a family member or friend that you call to enable you to have a night out. Here is no different, and we are pleased to be able to offer the services of a very safe, reliable and experienced lady for babysitting/child minding services for your children whilst on holiday here.

The baby sitter lives and works here in Loulé district. She is happy to care for children of any age. She has over 25 years of experience looking after children from birth and works in pre-school environments, worked in a primary school environment, but most importantly, is a mother herself.

Approximate times are required when booking, and payment must be made to the babysitter at the end of the babysitting/child minding in cash (Euros).
