About Kaja Decoz
Hi there, my name is Kaja Decoz, I am Dutch and have lived and worked in the Algarve since 1982. This is my home, I love the Portuguese people, the mild climate, the sun and beaches, just divine! Mãe Home was built for the purpose of becoming a comfortable family holiday home. I invite you to share this lovely place and look forward to welcome you for a relaxing holiday in the Algarve and enjoy this beautiful country as I do.
Why Kaja Decoz chose Quelfes
Comfortable and homey villa surrounded by tropical gardens on a super private location. End of a dirt track so NO passing traffic. Large Pool with deep-end, lots of terraces with sun loungers and seating around the villa and by the pool to eat 'al-fresco', to sit and relax, read or just 'chill'. There are hammocks to laze, there is fast WIFI. And Mãe Home is just a beautiful place. For reviews check ZOOVER
