I am offering a part of my farmhouse at the foot of the mountains near the small town of Estoi, north of Faro, as a holiday home.
What I have to offer is an apartment with two rooms, a well-equipped kitchen, a bathroom and an attached patio for al-fresco dining. The rooms are small and furnished in simple Portuguese style.
I have a large garden with many fruit trees (including oranges, mandarins, vines, almonds) and grow organic vegetables which I am very happy to share with my guests. I keep chickens, geese, ducks and a little dog.
It is an ideal holiday location for families with children who wish to enjoy the peace of the rural surroundings without foregoing the proximity of the beaches.
Faro airport and the city’s beach are about 8 km away and my home is not far from the numerous sandy beaches of the Eastern Algarve and the rocky bays of the Western shoreline.
The Spanish border in the East and the Western coast with its many delightful places to visit are less than an hour’s drive away.
There is a bus which runs from Estoi to Faro although it might be preferable to drive.
Estoi is a definite “must”. The centre of the old town has many original old houses, narrow alleyways with little squares and cosy cafes and restaurants. The wonderfully renovated palace is surrounded by a huge park and is somewhere you have to see as are also the remains of an old Roman villa lying just South of the town, the Milreu ruins.
The mountainous interior offers splendid hiking opportunities and excursion destinations in the countryside Southern Portugal
