We stayed at Casa dos Amigos for 2 weeks in July 2019, and absolutely everything went perfect. Reinhard greeted us upon our arrival and explained how certain thing work (TV's, washing machine and such). The house is on a steep hill overlooking district of Faro, you could see the ocean in a good day, it is roughly 5-6 minutes to Estoi, and 14 km to Faro. Nearest supermarket and a good one is is 16 minutes in the car. You will need a car but it is way worth to explore the surrounding in short grocery trips. There are plenty of public access beaches in a 30 to 40 minute distance and they are beautiful. Faro is a very pretty and picturesque little town with a Marina and old city neighborhood. We traveled to Spain as well which is 40 minutes away, no border.
House has a good size clean pool and the owner takes care of it twice a week. House has everything whats needed in terms of entertainment and kitchen and bath accommodations and is actually quite spacious. There are 2 bedrooms on first floor along with a fully equipped kitchen and living room. There is also an upstairs bedroom with a separate side way entrance with a kitchenette and a fridge. All rooms have ductless AC's.
We had perfect weather and an absolutely wonderful time at this place! We are recommending this place to everyone who wants visit this part of Portugal.
We all really enjoyed our stay at this villa, it's very beautiful and has a great view. The villa has all the accommodations of a home. Everybody enjoyed the pool and pool table.
The only thing i'd sugguest doing is maybe sending a map or detailed directions to the guest before arrival, because we did get lost looking for the villa. The address they sent us said, Faro,Faro and the rental van GPS didn't know that address it's in Estoi. Also we had ten guests and only received eight big bath towels the other two family members had to use smaller towels. All in all a very enjoyable time was had there.
