Very nice holiday house with a lot of room and a beautiful, spatious garden, where you can lie down in the sun or in the shade of the fig trees. The house is very well equiped, there’s everything you need. The owner, who lives down the road and speaks German, is very helpful. It was nice to pick oranges every morning from the trees, to make fresh orange juice. If you like the sun of the Algarve, but not the touristic crowds of Albufeira, this is the place to be. There’s a small beach in Fuzeta. Unfortunately the peace and quiet is many times during the day disturbed by choirs of barking dogs, which we found very annoying. An evening walk around the block is also not recommended. We had to turn back, because some loose angry dogs came after us.
We stayed in the Algarve for 5 weeks and at 5 different locations. Hands down, this was our a favorite stay, experience, and location of all. This casa gave us a true Portuguese experience. The accommodation was spacious, extremely clean, beautifully appointed and decorated with multiple sitting and dining areas outside. A great feature was a detached kitchen a spacious patios for dining and reclining to take in the country views. Although we were only two, this casa would be ideal for 2 couples or a family of 5.
It is located in a quiet country-side retreat, tucked away from the crowds but very close access to spectacular Tavira, Olhao, and many small eastern Algarve fishing villages. It overlooks a hobby-orchard of oranges, peaches, and apricots which you were encouraged to pick and consume - nothing like freshly squeezed orange juice while overlooking that valley with distant sea views!
The owners were extremely friendly, took special care of their property and buildings. They were responsive to our questions and very helpful on local knowledge and special places to visit and see. They went out of there way to make our stay as best as it could possibly be.
Our only regret was that our 7 day visit at the special place was too short. We highly recommend this Casa and we will definitely be back, sooner than later!
