Interaction with Guests
We live on the farm and we love to receive guests. We know perfectly how to let our guests at ease and we are here if there is the need to point out some places to visit or provide something that our guests may need. Just Rui speak English correctly.
The farm consists of a large house divided by apartments with separate entrances. The house is set in a large area of land where you can find some animals such as: dogs, goats, chickens, ducks and a horse. Attention our animals are not every days in the same place, if you want to see them probably have to ask someone from the farm to tell you where they are.
The farmhouse is surrounded by other farms. The area has a relaxing and calm environment, allowing you to enjoy nature.
The farm has free parking.
Out of our farm we advise you to try traditional food (mostly fish, seafood and wine), 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, kayaking, surfing, windsurfing, sailing, fishing, golf, safari, water parks. In the apartment you will find some information about these places.
The farm stays at (78km) from Faro airport, (3.5 km) from the beach, (1km) from the golf course Palmares, (6 km) from Lagos, (15km) from Portimão (800m) of a village.
In the village you can find the nearest restaurants, cafes, traditional supermarkets, market, pharmacy, bank and public transport to the city of Lagos and Portimão.

We had a lovely stay at Maria and Rui's. The apartment was very spacious, it had all the amenities we needed and more (iron, hairdryer, microwave, toaster, etc) and it had a beautiful view over the surrounding houses and hills. The neighbourhood is very nice and very quiet. You will need a car though, because the house is situated on the outskirts of the village. You could use the bus ( the bus station in the village is approx. 20 minutes walking distance) however, the bus service is not very frequent outside the high season (july, august). The nearest beach, Meia Praia, is about 4 km away (one hour walking distance). The owners were very nice. Rui was not home when we arrived, but Maria showed us to our apartment and Rui came to meet us and wish us a warm welcome afterwards. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
Maria Jose se preocupó de que llegaramos al alojamiento. Se halla en un pueblo de interior pero cerca de las playas y zona costera. Es muy tranquilo en medio del campo, tienen gallinas para los más pequeños de la familia.
No obstante, estuvimos solamente una noche y no paramos en el alojamiento porque estabamos de visita. Por este motivo no compartimos vivencias con los anfitriones si bien se preocuparon de hospedarnos, viniendo a recojernos en el centro del pueblo ya que el alojamiento está apartado.
El sitio es precioso, muy tranquilo y agradable. Está ubicado en Odiaxere, al lado de Lagos, por lo que se hace imprescindible coche. Al llegar al pueblo, quedamos en un sitio céntrico, y los anfitriones vinieron a buscarnos para indicarnos el lugar de alojamiento. el segundo día nos obsequiaron con ciruelas del entorno.
Eso sí, comentar que la piscina estaba vacía. por lo demás todo perfecto.
We had a wonderful stay at this place. The neigboorhood was very quite and beautiful. We had a warm welcome and the owners are very helpful and friendly. It was also clean and fresh. The only thing were the beds.. after a couple of nights I really feld my back. They were a little bit hard. But overall we had a very nice and wonderful stay at this apartment. Really apriciate it! You really need a car, that is my advice, because it is a little bit far to walk to the beach. Althought they have bikes for rent.
Estuvimos 8 dias en casa de Maria y Rui. Nuestro apartamento era pequeño, pero tranquilo y con todo lo necesario. Pudimos llevar a nuestro perro que ademas estaba muy contento porque hay zonas verdes alrededor. Tratamos sobre todo con Rui que fue muy amable, y ademas los anfitriones nos invitaron a cenar una noche. Aunque al final no pudimos cenar con ellos se agradece el detalle.
Olá Maria e Rui!
Gostamos muito da nossa estadia na vossa casa. O vosso anuncio faz jus à realidade e o à vontade partilhado com os hospedes é uma mais valia. Gostamos muito da vossa simpatia e hospitalidade. Quem sabe se não nos encontraremos mais vezes por ai?!
Obrigado, Susana e Marco
