About this villa

This modern villa is comfortable and perfect for outdoor living. The newly painted villa is an independent house and the pool is not overlooked. The large garden is totally enclosed. Accommodation on one floor, nicely furnished with all modern comforts. Plenty of space for sunbathing and if shade is sought, there are lovely terraces around the house and a roof terrace. Shopping in Estoi and Sao bras about 5 mins drive. Shopping centre jumbo in Faro on the way home from the beach. A car is necessary. As we often use the villa ourselves we have provided it with all amenities: dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, dvd, satellite tv, air-conditioning and a remodeled kitchen. Estoi is well known for its palace that has become a pousada and for the roman villa. Both can be visited. A welcome pack can be prepared on simple demand (to be paid at arrival). We renewed the bathrooms in 2016 with walk in rainshower.

    Lovely Villa - far from the Madding Crowd!!

    Spent a lovely two weeks at this villa for a total relaxing getaway. The villa had all the facilities you need with near-by local shops and restaurants. Far away from the tourist spots which was a bonus for us but still only 20 minutes from Faro The owner was so flexible when we had to cancel last year due to Covid-19 and originally could only make another booking in summer 2022. This changed again and we were able to use it for this summer and Wilfried/Janine ensured it happened. David who looks after the villa was great to chat to and very friendly. We did not have to contact him at all during our stay. If you want your Covid test done before travelling back then can recommend Synlab at Faro Airport and you can download their App to get yourselves booked in. Results back in 4 hours! Thanks Janine and Wilfried for a great relaxing holiday

    Ersparen Sie sich meine Erfahrung, melden Sie alles SOFORT an fewo und machen Sie Fotos

    Ich reise viel und buche bei div. Anbietern. Was mir hier widerfuhr, habe ich aber noch nie erlebt. Ich buche nicht die günstigste Unterkunft - genau wie Sie, wenn Sie sich für dieses Objekt interessieren. Ich war ein ganzes Monat in dem Haus. Ich bin ein sehr entgegenkommender Mensch und bis jetzt damit gut gefahren. Hier nicht; und damit Ihnen meine Erfahrungen erspart bleiben, möchte ich Ihnen ans Herz legen: Nehmen Sie sich bei der Ankunft Zeit, schauen Sie genau auf die Sauberkeit im Haus, vor allem in der Küche. Im Küchenschrank waren gebrauchte/schmutzige Wassergäser - machen Sie nicht meinen Fehler und waschen diese ab und denken, naja, kann ja passieren. Der Inhaber wurde übrigens durch die Person, die sich vor Ort kümmert, über alle Defekte und Mängel informiert. Bitte beachten Sie - das reicht nicht! Sie müssen SOFORT fewo informieren und alles mit Fotos dokumentieren. Das ist wichtig, seien Sie nicht konziliant - das kommt Sie teuer. Achten Sie auf den Backofen. Es ist ein portabler Backofen der MarkeQilive - er ist innen total verrostet. (Schade dass man hier keine Fotos hochladen kann. ) Ich hatte den ganzen Monat keinen Backofen. Teflon-Pfannen waren schmutzig in der Schublade. Ameisenköder überall auf der Arbeitsplatte in der Küche und auf dem Küchenboden. Im offenen Küchenregal eine dicke Staubschicht mit toten Küchenschaben. Die Klima/Heizung in der Küche sei seit langem defekt, man wisse das, hiess es. Im Schrank hinter dem Esstisch befindet sich Geschirr, Gläser und Tischwäsche - schauen Sie alles an. Bei mir befand sich darin verdreckte, schön zusammengelegte Tischwäsche und schmutzige Wein-Gläser -die habe ich nicht gewaschen, weil ich sie nicht benötigte. Weiters hatte ich hatte zweieinhalb Tage kein warmes Wasser, konnte also nicht duschen. Dann war die Tolette verstopft. Einige Tage vor meiner Abreise hatte über zwei ganze Tage und Nächte überhaupt gar KEIN WASSER. Ich war gezwungen im Ort mehrere Liter Wasser zu kaufen, ins Haus zu schleppen, damit ich wenigstens meine Zähne putzen konnte, mich notdürftig waschen und die Tolette spülen. Ohne Wasser ist verdammt mühsam, kann ich Ihnen sagen! Das Objekt ist nicht ganz eingezäunt, es ist zur Strasse hin offen (Kinder/Haustier). Meldung an Inhaber reicht nicht! Melden Sie alles SOFORT fewo. Ich meldete es fewo erst bei meiner Rückkehr; grosser Fehler!Der Eigentümer war übrigens noch so dreist, für die Toilette eine Nachbelastung von 150 euro auf meine Kredikarte zu machen.

    Lieu de détente confortable

    La maison est très bien équipée, propre et parfaitement adaptée à une famille de 4 personnes. Le jardin privatif sans vis à vis et la piscine privée est un plus (surtout en ce moment avec le Covid) C'est un endroit propice à la détente et au repos loin du tumulte touristique. Il faut obligatoirement une voiture pour les achats alimentaires etc. (nous le savions avant de nous y rendre, il n'y a pas de mauvaises surprises) Si vous recherchez un endroit reposant et confortable pour vos vacances, c'est ici qu'il faut venir!

    Zonnig rustpunt

    Rustig gelegen Casa. Mooi uitzicht. Goed georiënteerde, ruime zit- en ligplaatsen rond het nette zwembad. Vriendelijk onthaal door David, die heel discreet instond voor het onderhoud van het zwembad. Stipte correspondentie met de eigenaar. Wij hadden een aangename vakantie.

    Very nice place to stay

    We had a nice time in this house which is very confortable with a big kitchen and a nice living room. We stayed only 3 days in December and were really sad not to be able to stay a bit longer :( We will have to come back!

    Découverte de l'Algarve

    Nous avons séjourné à 5 dans cette charmante maison avec piscine. Idéalement située près de Faro et non loin de d'Albufaira, l'endroit est d'un très grand calme.

    Estadia ideal para férias, confortável, isolada e bem localizada

    A nossa estadia na Casa Portuguesa foi bastante agradável. A casa está equipada com o essencial o que nos facilitou a estadia (maquina de lavar loiça, frigorífico grande, ar condicionado, toalhas de banho e praia). O grande ponto positivo foi aceitarem animais e termos sido muito bem recebidos. Aspetos menos positivos: - a piscina estava um pouco suja quando chegamos e tinha cloro em demasia, o que nos provocou alguma irritação na pele. No entanto, passados alguns dias, já estava normal. - alguns electrodomésticos da cozinha (cafeteira, torradeira e forno) não estavam próprios para uso. A casa é confortável e está localizada numa zona bastante calma. Está perto de vários pontos turísticos, praias e supermercados. Recomendamos a estadia e esperamos voltar!
