About Ageeth Bliault
We, Robin and Ageeth Bliault, together with our son Sean are resident in The Netherlands. Robin is British, Ageeth Dutch. 20 years ago we went into the design en project management, specifically for the hospitality branch. Our key-point is to use original / antique building materials and this fitted in well with the restoration of our holiday home. Recently we completed a number of contracts in Albufeira. Whenever our work in The Netherlands allows it we come to our second home in Boliqueime and hopefully this will be possible more and more in the near future. RTL-4 Dutch TV followed the rebuilding of Casa no Canto for the programme "Verbouwen zonder grenzen" - building without borders- The result was a 1 hour TV show which was watched by more than 1 million people in The Netherlands.
Ageeth Bliault purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Ageeth Bliault chose Boliqueime
The Algarve has been our favorite holiday spot for many, many years. In the summer of 2011 we decided that is was time to turn our dream of buying a holiday home in Portugal into reality. Quite by accident we found out that the old fish shop and three adjoining houses in Boliqueime were for sale. In November 2011 the deal was done and we were able to inspect the houses and try to figure out a plan to restore and rebuilt what the villagers called the old fish shop; "o velho peixeiro". 7 months later, dozens of sketches, drawings, meetings and occasional arguments, we finally got started with "a loose plan"; in other words we shall see what happens when certain walls are removed and continue from there. 8 months later, in February 2013 the house was completed.
What makes this Villa unique
Casa no Canto, House on the Corner, is in the middle of the village within walking distance from local shops, bars and restaurants. No need to get into the car in the evening if you don't feel like cooking yourself. You can buy fresh vegetables, fruit and meat and in the mini Mercado fresh bread is available every morning in this friendly, white village. You feel Portuguese amongst the Portugues. There are an abundance of first class golf courses in the area. The Vilamoura Marina is a hive of activity, day and night; restaurants and bars, fishing, sailing and leisure cruises. Portugal's most beautiful beaches , the nightlife of Albufeira, Loulé's shopping centre, all at your doorstep. And then, after embarking one of the many day trips it is feels great to come home to Casa no Canto.

Wonderful property in a lovely location with great owners
We stayed at Casa no Canto for a week in September to celebrate my dad’s birthday. The owner, Ageeth, was extremely helpful and responsive during the booking process and the property was ideal for our stay. Bright, spacious and homely with quirky features and a wonderful outdoor area, this property made for a very relaxing home from home and we’ll definitely be returning.
Somewhere to relax and forget the stresses of life
The property is very well renovated and furnished to a high standard. Great for a large number of people with everything that you could need. The local people are very welcoming and the town has well used bars and restuarants - the piri-piri chicken is particularly worth a visit. The bedrooms are comfortable, all with en-suites and plenty of space.
It is well located to explore the surrounding areas.
We spent 10 days here with varying weather conditions and found the house large enough to be inside or out and even a cosy fire for cold, wet days.
The pool is lovely but maybe a little deep for very young children.
We will definitely be returning as it was a very relaxing holiday.
Wonderful House perfect for group/family living.
We rented this property for a whole month and invited groups of friends and family to join us to celebrate both my 50th birthday and Christmas. It is the most amazing house and so well kitted out for family living.
There is so much space and both the kitchen and outdoor patio spaces became the central point for social gatherings.
Everyone who came said how comfortable the beds are and really enjoyed the beautifully styled bedrooms. We can not say enough about this wonderful home.
The village is also lovely and the local shop keeper could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Its a great location for exploring the local beaches and towns.
The place was clean and comfortable and well looked after. We would all highly recommend this fabulous place.

Maison magnifique mais trop de nuisance sonore
Maison très jolie avec de bonnes prestations comme le changement 2fois par semaine des serviettes avec nettoyage de la cuisine. Belle Piscine.
Le gros problème, c 'est le bruit des voitures et motos qui empêche de dormir dans les 2 chambres donnant sur la rue. Le lave vaisselle est abîmé à l'intérieur et lavage ne se faisait pas correctement.
From the village of Boliqueime you can see the Atlantic Ocean.
The most famous beaches with their impressive rock formations and also the miles of sandy beaches of Falesia are only 10 minutes by car.
