About this listing

The space

“Casas do Palheiro Velho” consists of some contiguous buildings which are part of a farm house built in the first half of the last century. It is located in the surroundings of “Castro Marim” ten minutes away from the beach (praias da Baía de Monte Gordo), therefore you can fully enjoy it’s tranquillity and charm.
In order to preserve organic architecture and region characteristics our houses were carefully restored using traditional materials such as canes, “ cal”, wood, Portuguese roof tile, porcelain tile of “Santa Catarina” and wool sheep for isolation.
The environment has always been a matter of concern for us. Therefore we have an efficient dark water treatment which makes it converge into a filter system of aerobiosis. Subsequently it will be poured into a “fito-etar” where the waters are purified by halophytes and riparian shrubs. Waters are then captured in a pit which irrigates the garden. The grey waters from the baths and washbasins are processed through a system that purifies it to be reused into washing clothes, toilets and garden watering.
In this context, the visitors will never be harming the fragile balance of the ecosystem of the mountains.
Looking forward to your visit, we’ll do everything to reach your expectations.

We had a very good stay at Anabela's! We had everything we needed and she and her husband are really kind and helpful!

We spend three nights at the Casas do Palheiro Velho on our bike trip in September 2013. After we got a bit lost on our way to Junqueira due to the darkness, Anabela and Domingos decided to pick us up on the road which was very nice. When we arrived, we were shown around and even offered self-made lemonade, soup and cake, all of it very delicious (- thanks again). We immediately decided to book for another night (we had only booked two nights in the begin). Seeing the superb breakfast the morning after (plus the view across the countryside), we knew we would not regret that decision. The apartment as well as the whole building is very beautiful and in a very good condition. With all its little paths and corners it reminds a bit of a miniature city. We really, really enjoyed our time there (and thought of the breakfast again several other mornings on the rest of our trip ;-)) All the best and see you again someday, Eva and Matthias

What a nice surprise it was to visit this part of the Algarve! The B&B is very comfortable, the breakfast is delicious with home-made fresh products. Anabela and Domingos are excellent hosts, helpful, friendly and there when you need them. The farm yard is completely renovated but without losing the charm of the old buildings. There is a pleasant common garden with a small swimming pool and a well-equipped bbq place. The beach of Cacela Velha was a stunning surprise, don’t forget to go there. Vila Real de Sto. Antonio and Ayamonte are also well worth a visit. In other words: there are plenty things to do in the surrounding area, don’t skip this one.

Nous avons passé une semaine avec nos deux filles à Castro Marim chez Anabela et Domingos. La propriété rénovée est très belle et conforme à ce qui est décrit sur le site. Le logement était très agréable et confortable. Les petits déjeuners étaient délicieux et variés : gâteaux faits maison, confitures maison réalisées avec les fruits du jardin, fruits, etc. Le jardin, les terrasses sont très agréables pour se reposer au calme et à l'ombre. La maison est bien située à proximité de belles plages de l'océan et de la rivière tout en étant à distance de la foule. Proximité également des commerces. Anabela et Domingos, qui parlent très bien français, anglais, espagnol (et portugais!!) sont adorables, toujours disponibles et de très bon conseil. Une vraie bonne adresse que nous conseillons.

La Casa de Anabela y Domingus es un lugar estupendo para desconectar, tranquilo, cómodo y muy limpio. Conserva la antigua estructura de volúmenes y patios que se suceden salvando los desniveles propios del terreno en el que se asienta y se integra con total naturalidad. Ellos dos son tranquilos y amables y preparan unos desayunos espectaculares, con mermeladas caseras, huevos revueltos recién cocinados, zumo natural, fruta fresca, en fin, para quedarse media mañana desayunando. La estancia ha merecido la pena. Gracias Anabel y Domingus

Passamos 3 dias fantásticos nos apartamentos da Anabela e do Domingos. As Casas do Palheiro Velho superaram as nossas expectativas, o nosso apartamento era grande e muito confortável. O pequeno almoço caseiro no terraço acompanhado pela vista dos montes algarvios foi óptimo. O melhor de tudo foi a simpatia e as informações que a Anabela e o Domingos nos deram, que contribuíram muito para melhorar a nossa estadia no sotavento algarvio, onde descobrimos praias lindas, bons restaurantes e ainda subimos o Guadiana até Alcoutim, a não perder. Havemos de voltar!

Trocámos a cidade pelo campo...encontrámos um desafio... a reabilitação duma antiga casa de lavoura dum bisavô. Fizemo-lo com muita dedicação e carinho. Conseguimos devolver-lhe o charme e encanto de outras épocas...
O ambiente é uma das nossas prioridades...Reciclamos as águas residuais que são depuradas por plantas e reutilizadas para regar plantas ornamentais...
Vai adorar reencontrar uma época em que o tempo decorria devagar...e como somos "amigos do ambiente", a sua pégada ecológica não irá contribuir para perturbar o frágil equílibrio da serra... Visite-nos....
