Frank and Danielle

Breakaway is really proud to say that several of our overseas hotels have been announced as Trip Advisor Travelers Choice 2014 Winners.

Every year the top 10% of hotels and inns listed on Trip Advisor receive a Certificate of Excellence award. Although many of our hand-picked hotels reach this milestone, the awards for individual countries are even more impressive, with the following inns placing in the top 25 in their respective countries!

Quinta do Barranco da Estrada – Top 25 B&B’s and Inns in Portugal

This friendly, family run inn features in our Fisherman’s Trails of the Alentejo walking tour. Barranco da Estrada is a unique property. Frank McClintock moved here and bought the land in the 70’s, where his Casa Rural has taken shape slowly over the intervening years. The rooms are set out in a row above the Santa Clara Reservoir with stunning views over the water. The landscaped garden was created specifically to attract local and migrating bird life and does the job brilliantly!
