About Adrian and Miranda Wallace
We live in England (South Shropshire), but spend as much time as we can in Portugal. We fell in love with the wonderful, unspoilt East Algarve 10 years ago and have finally been able to realise our dream of having a holiday house there.
Adrian and Miranda Wallace purchased this Villa in 2011
Why Adrian and Miranda Wallace chose Quelfes
Casa Josephina is, for us, the perfect combination: a beautiful house with a large and private garden, totally secluded and not overlooked by other properties, but not isolated. The countryside is totally unspoilt - a rolling landscape of olive, almond, orange and lemon orchards - yet you're only 5 minutes away from Olhao with all its shops and restaurants, and the little ferries to all the lagoon islands. As we're golfers, but didn't want a house on a golf complex, Casa Josephina is ideally located for us, with at least a dozen courses within 20 - 30 min drive.
What makes this Villa unique
One of the great things about Casa Josephina is that there are so many places to sit and relax. You can flop by the pool on one of the sun loungers, or under the new poolside loggia if you prefer- or on a shady terrace under the carob trees - or in the covered outdoor eating area with views over the almond and olive orchard next door - or on the kitchen terrace (a suntrap in the morning) - or on the first floor terrace, with its fantastic views of the sunset or southwards down to the sea. So many choices - you hardly need to go elsewhere! We love the large and well-matured garden, with its glorious displays of roses and its huge variety of fruit trees (orange, lemon, peach, pomegranate, fig, persimmon, guava....) Gardening is one of our passions.
