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.

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!!

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!

Fantastic house in an idyllic location - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Faro to attend a nearby wedding and it's a short drive to Estoi from Faro airport ( we picked up a car Zit auto car hire , also recommended! It's also possible to get a bus to Faro and taxi to Estoi) Actually it's a little bit tricky after Estoi so watch out for the sharp right turn down to the farmhouse, which is set in the sun drenched rolling hills. When you arrive and get out of the car , prepare to exhale and begin to relax in a little bit of heaven. I spent the days before the wedding just unwinding by the pool, preparing sumptuous meals in the mediterranean style kitchen or relaxing out of the sun in the very comfy lounge. Friends were arriving over the next two days and the night before the wedding we had a full house- I think there must have been at least 9 people staying, including a few babies. The two houses, each with kitchen and bathrooms, means it's very easy for different groups, or couples with kids, to come and go independently while the big dining kitchen and dining room in the main house allows for us all to come together and enjoy communal meals. Actually because of the amazing weather all of our evenigns were spent eating al fresco on the big stone table, enjoying amazing bbq fish and meats and veg, all brought locally in nearby Estoi or Faro. There's lots to do and visit nearby and a few of our party went on daily road trips but personally I was happy to chill out by the pool and read and go for easy walks along the country roads and through the fields, with their stones walls, olive trees and nervous sheep! I did get a bit of surfing in; good surfing spots are less than an hour away on the motorway. Highly recommended spot - we definitately hope to get back.
