If you need a bit of calm, moments to stay put in the shadow of a tree crown, take a sun bath all by yourself, enjoy all the cosy corners of a terrace, or have small kids running around without any worries, this is the place to be. The property is a real beauty and well kept after with generous interior spaces and various compartments, which makes it easy to take a break from social life in a bigger group. The kitchen worked well, bathrooms and bedrooms are very comfortable. The air condition is a big plus to keep the interior fresh during the hot days. A small but very useful detail ist a keypod, which makes organisation with several groups easy. Though remote it was easy to find, thanks to Nunos excellent instructions. We were well received, also by the neigbours little cat seeking company, and Nuno took his time to give us recommendations and directions for the day activities. A place apt for longer stays and a strong recommendation!

What a great stay we had in Olhão-Quelfes over Christmas and New Year. The house was even better than we hoped for based on the pics, a grand old lady really, well maintained and with everything and more you can wish for in a family holiday home. The house is surrounded by terrace, huge garden and grounds, making it a very private place. We enjoyed mediterranean lunches with the family bbq-ing on the terrace during sunny daytime hours. Chilly evenings were easily overcome by a homely fire in the cosy living, wood for the fire to be gathered on the grounds during the day. Bedrooms could be heated by small electrical heaters and there were extra blankets to beat cold nights. We explored the Algarve in all directions, went for great long hikes, visited lovely small fishing villages and bigger Faro and of course enjoyed the charming coastal village of Olhão and it's range of islands like Culatra. What made our stay most special, was the warm welcome we got from our host Nuno. Communication prior to our arrival had already been easy and great, giving us a lot of confidence in this reservation. And that feeling just continued during our stay. He was at hand if we needed anything, happy to answer questions regarding the house or exploring the region. We left relaxed and well-rested (the beds are just great), a little sun burned, very happy but with a heavy heart after our 10 days stay. Many thanks!
