Overview

About the property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + 2 Baths (Sleeps 8-10) plus opt. wood cabin

The farmhouse is set on a south-facing hillside and enjoys spectacular views over un-spoilt countryside down to the sea. Set on 4 acres of grounds and gardens, this charming farmhouse, dating from 1916 is very well furnished in an antique, rustic style and it is just a few minutes drive from the town of Estoi. The Eastern Algarve is still unspoilt and relatively underdeveloped offering a more relaxed atmosphere for those wishing to escape the bustle of the main tourist areas while still having access to glorious beaches frequented more by the locals. Fascinating historic town of Faro within easy reach, and the historic town of Loule, famous throughout the Algarve for its many craft shops and markets. The pretty fishing village of Olhao is 8 kms away. Ideally situated between the east and west Algarve golf courses. Spain is easily reached within 40-45 minutes.

Main House: The main house is divided into two distinct self contained living spaces each having their own kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom.

Wood cabin: There is a self-contained wood cabin on the property that sleeps 2-4 which is included in the rental when the party is larger than 8. It has one bed, bathroom and living area with convertible bed and small kitchen.

Excellent place to stay and relax!

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse was top quality in every sense of the word from its serene and quiet peaceful location to the beautiful light and airy interior with amazing furnishings.There was no amenity we couldn’t find, and the information left by other guests was also helpful for traveling to nearby sites and restaurants. The bonus for our family was a most adorable old dog who would visit regularly but not so much as a bark. Just loveable and friendly. We can’t recommend this lovely home enough. We definitely wish to return next Fall.

Great spot for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time experiencing this local gem. We ended up cooking a lot of meals on the grill and preparing large breakfasts to eat outside on the picnic table with the beautiful vistas behind us! The "house book" was loaded with excellent detailed information for the best beaches and sights which made narrowing down all the choices a breeze! Thank you to the owners and house manager for being so communicative and responsive to inquiries. Great place to experience local flavor without all the tourists!!

THE PERFECT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

MAJESTIC VIEW OF FARO AND THE SEA. THE HOUSE IS CHARMING AND WELL APPOINTED. NOTHING IS LACKING. THE LOCATION IS QUIET. THE AIR FRESH AND CLEAN. VITOR IS ATTENTIVE . WE'VE RENTED MANY PLACES ALL OVER THE WORLD AND THIS IS THE BEST SO FAR. NO SURPRISES OR DISAPPOINTMENTS WITH THIS RENTAL, JUST THE OPPOSITE. WE WERE MORE THEN PLEASED. OUR TIME HERE WAS SPECIAL.

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 from the U.S. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the unique nature of the home and peaceful setting. The town of Estoi is quaint and it is a breeze to get around the greater Algarve region from the home. The owners and house manager were always very responsive and all communication and information was timely and accurate. We highly recommend this property and will do so to family and friends. Thank you for a great experience and memories!

Fabulous place with tons of space

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a wonderful week here this summer in this original farmhouse not far from Faro. It's a superb house with a nice view and plenty of space to accommodate a lot of people, and has a lovely outdoor area for bbqs. It's also excellently located for seeing lots of beautiful villages along the coast. Highly recommend this place!
