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.
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.

Rui est venu nous chercher à un point de rendez-vous prés de chez lui, l’accueil a été très sympathique, une corbeille de fruits de leur verger était sur la table, il nous a bien conseillé sur les choses à voir et les restaurants.
Le logement est spacieux et très propre, on peut manger sur la terrasse avec une vue agréable.
Le linge de toilette et de lit est fourni et est impeccable.
We were made to feel extremely welcome upon arrival. The accommodation was very comfortable with a lovely view of the farm and of the surrounding area. It was extremely peaceful and perfect for relaxing in at the end of our trip.
The location was good with parking on site and about 5 minutes drive to Lagos which is a lovely town.
Rui und seine Frau sind die perfekten Gastgeber. Sie stets sehr hilfsbereit ohne dabei aufdringlich zu sein. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber und liebevoll eingerichtet und mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Dass der Ort nicht direkt am Strand liegt ist kein Problem, da man mit Bus oder Auto schnell in Lagos ist. Wir bedanken uns für die Gastfreundlichkeit und hoffen bald noch einen weiteren schönen Urlaub dort verbringen zu können.
L accueil a été chaleureux, la maison est sur un beau terrain, au calme entourée de verdure... Et on était proche de tout ... Belle expérience...
We had an awesome holiday in this amazing house upon a small hill including a magnificent view on the portugese landscape. However, the best part of our trip were the hosts (Rui & Marlene, Mario and the whole family). They were nicest hosts we ever had. Not only were they very obliging but also very helpful with every issue that we had. We felt as part of the whole family which was a wonderful and very pleasent surprise for us. Million thanks to the whole family and we are foward to see you again. Anne & Thomas
Nous avons reçu le meilleur accueil depuis que je voyage avec Airbnb. La maison est formidadable et les propriétaires si gentils qu'ils nous font vite sentir comme à la maison. Nous serions reste des semaines de plus si cela avait été possible. Merci pour tout!
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.
