I am offering a part of my farmhouse at the foot of the mountains near the small town of Estoi, north of Faro, as a holiday home.

What I have to offer is an apartment with two rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and an attached patio for al-fresco dining. The rooms are small and furnished in simple Portuguese style.

I have a large garden with many fruit trees (including oranges, mandarins, vines, almonds) and grow organic vegetables which I am very happy to share with my guests. I keep chickens, geese, ducks and a little dog.

It is an ideal holiday location for families with children who wish to enjoy the peace of the rural surroundings without foregoing the proximity of the beaches.

Faro airport and the city’s beach are about 8 km away and my home is not far from the numerous sandy beaches of the Eastern Algarve and the rocky bays of the Western shoreline.

The Spanish border in the East and the Western coast with its many delightful places to visit are less than an hour’s drive away.

There is a bus which runs from Estoi to Faro although it might be preferable to drive.

Estoi is a definite “must”. The centre of the old town has many original old houses, narrow alleyways with little squares and cosy cafes and restaurants. The wonderfully renovated palace is surrounded by a huge park and is somewhere you have to see as are also the remains of an old Roman villa lying just South of the town, the Milreu ruins.

The mountainous interior offers splendid hiking opportunities and excursion destinations in the countryside Southern Portugal

A very, very nice place to stay. We were there with two small children (2 and 5) and they loved the farm and the animals. It was very clean, the kitchen has everything you need. Desiderio is incredibly friendly and can help you with planning nice outings in the area. We can really recommend it!

Response from Desidério:
Alles Gute für Euch. Die Hunde heissen "saltarica" und "migas". Das "a" am Ende spricht man ähnlich wie das "e" in Butter. Alles Gute für Euch. "saltarica " vermisst bestimmt die Jungs, denn die Spielerei mit migas geht ihr manchmal auf die Nerven

The place is wonderful. Our host was very friendly and gave us tips as to where to go and what to see. He has 2 very friendly dogs and flock of birds in secluded area. We very much recommend choosing this place if you want a nice and quite place to stay.

A wonderful peaceful place. Perfect for children -Desiderios dogs are the sweetest, his trampoline the biggest (according to my 3,5 year old) and his orchard a great place to taste fruit and play hide and seek. Also: the whole apartment was very clean, the terrace perfect for quiet evenings with wine and/or a BBQ, the kitchen fully equipped and big, plus a great bathroom with a large tub. Desiderio is a great host, and knows all the nice beaches and fine restaurants. It all made our holiday care-free and very relaxing.

Great place to stay if you want to be away from tourism but close to beaches. Its a lovely house on a sort of farm which you share with Desiderio. He is very discrete but also very accommodating and thoughtful concerning his guests. 2 lovely dogs live there who are great with kids, beautiful orange trees, fig trees .. geese, chickens and just very peaceful. 20 min drive to Faro beach or airport. Estoi itself is very pretty if you want to just have a walk around the town too. Enjoy!

Desidério is responsive and hospitable person. He helped with all our problems and questions. He advised places which we can visit with sightseeings. When we just arrived Desidério offered us dinner and excellent wine. Cause we didn't have any products with us. Near the house is wonderful garden with orange trees, two dogs, ducks and hens. This house is perfect for family with kids. It is the best place if you want to get acquainted with un touristic Portugal. In Estoi you can find restaurant where you can eat (tasty and not expensive). Only 15 minutes to the ocean. We have great memory about this nice house and the host. Спасибо, Десидерио!

We stayed at Desidério's two weeks over Christmas. Generally it was a comfortable and relaxing holiday. We loved his little farm with ducks, chickens, geese, two dogs, orange and mandarin trees. Desidério is a very friendly, helpful and easy going host. He is caring about his guests, he provided us food and drinks on our first day, as we arrived late. He invited us next evening for a grill. Besides we were allowed for fresh orange and mandarins, eggs. We felt very much welcomed and at home and also we loved his company. Thank you for the nice time Desidério

Interaction with guests

Quite a lot, since I enjoy interacting, learning from them and informing them about Portugal.
