We are Marlene and Rui. I’m Marlene daughter of the owners and Rui my boyfriend.
The farm has about 15,000 square meters and the house 400 square meters that was built about 40 years ago by my parents, consists of 3 apartments and 3 bedrooms.
The farm is located in a prime location. In a residential area where most of the residents are of various nationalities. It’s 3.5 Km to the nearest beach (Meia Praia - biggest beach in the Algarve), 1km from the Palmares golf course, 5 km to Lagos, 10km to Portimão and 800 meters to the nearest village .
In the village you can find restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, market, pharmacy, bank and public transport.
It is a very quiet place, safe and close to everything.
Our garden is based on grass, flowers, vegetables, fruit trees, plants, teas, herbs, cacti, animals, garden furniture, barbecue, wood stove, private parking area, laundry room and terraces. Ideal for hiking, catching season fruits, vegetables or tea, having contact with animals, enjoy the beautiful views of the countryside, eating in the garden or balcony. If you want to know more about our plants and animals simply ask us that we make a guided tour in the farm and give you to taste our natural products. If you have a dog or a cat, you can bring it with you, since he walk with leash on our farm.
The bedroom with private bathroom is on the first floor of the house. It can take 1-3 persons. This apartment has 3 bedrooms for rent, each bedroom has its own bathroom. The kitchen and living room are shared with guests from the other bedrooms. There is Wi-Fi in the house. The common sitting room has a TV with only Portuguese channels.
The kitchen is fully equipped to make the foods you want, you can use the bedroom, the kitchen, the garden or terraces to dine.
The decor is simple and familiar, clean, warm and full of light. The sheets and towels are included, just do cleaning, change of sheets and towels for stays longer than 7 nights.
Outside of our farm we advise you to visit the beautiful beaches of the West coast of the Algarve. The city of Lagos which is quite historic, can also do boat trip to the caves of the coast, canoeing, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, golf, safari, water parks. In the apartment you will find some information about these places.
Since many years we receive guests at our farm. We live on the farm and we are accustomed to receiving guests. We know perfectly to leave the guests at ease and whenever there is the need to point out some places to visit or provide something that the guests need we are here.
WARNING: If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask before booking.
Marlene&Rui's is even more wonderful than in pictures. Beautiful surrounding, quite and very clean space. Outdoors and indoors very spaceful. Great place to rest, not far from Lagos - bus running frequently. Rui showed all the hospitality portugese are known off. Picked me up at lagos bus station and showed me the points I will be using during my stay, even offered breakfast. Highly recommend the place! If I am in this part of Portugal again, this place will definitely be my part time home again. Thanks again for hospitality!
Marlene and Rui are a very nice and friendly couple.
The house is in a rural area but close to the beaches and Lagos. If you want to get away from the hassel of Largos it is just perfect. It is a whole flat just for guests. We could use a well equipped kitchen, a big living room and a very nice terasse- sunny at breakfast time. Therefore you really can enjoy your privacy.
Thank you Marlene and Rui for the great stay!
Rui welcomed us very well in his nice farm house. Comfortable room, with big kitchen and terrace. If you need rest, this is a perfect location. No noise of cars or traffic, although it is located just 2min by car from a small city.
La casa se encuentra muy bien situada,colindante al pueblo de Odiaxere. Lo que respecta a las zonas comunes está muy bien equipada aunque la habitación tenia algunas deficiencias: como las camas individuales muy estrechas y de diferente tamaño,una de ellas sumamente dura e incomoda.
El baño correcto excepto la ducha que apenas tenía presión y de dificil regulación de temperatura.
Podría ser un entorno ideal sin embargo estaba muy descuidado y la alberca con agua estancada era un auténtico criadero para los mosquitos!A pesar de la protección de mosquiteras en las ventanas de toda la casa,era imposible evitarlos.
Rui fue amable con nosotros, nos fue a buscar al pueblo y nos mostró el camino a la casa.Nos presentó a la potrilla que se había quedado huerfana , era superlinda !! y disfrutamos mucho con ella!
Nos quedamos sorprendidos con el trato recibido por parte de Mariane,ya que no vino a recibirnos ni a presentarse en ningun momento,Entró por la mañana a limpiar y con cierta hostilidad nos cuestionaba donde nos sentabamos a desayunar,nos quedamos desconcertados sin saber quien era y sin entender mucho ya que no hablamos portugués.Este trato continuó durante toda la estancia.
La experiencia no fue del todo agradable,nos quedamos con lo positivo aunque no volveriamos a repetir.
Rui was a very friendly guy and a good host. he even took us from the train station by car. The place is very nice but a little bit outside of lagos and the beach but the nearest village odiaxere provides nearly everything you need.
Very authentic. Nice and quiet. Clean rooms.
Very friendly host. Very helpfull.
