All our family is from the North, but the four of us (my parents, my brother and myself) have spent our Summer holidays in the Algarve since our teens.

In 1971, when I was pregnant with my first child, my parents purchased this wide open property, with no fences at all and with a very small cottage where an old couple lived with their donkey. No water at all, everything dry all around. My parents were so thrilled with the idea of seeing the coming baby wandering around that, despite the total lack of water, they were prepared to fight for their dream.

As an engineer, my father was always looking for any improvements that could provide better conditions. So, he sent for someone to look for water and… bingo! Plenty of clear water from a well and soon did the desert become a garden with bushes, flowers and fruit trees due to my mother’s great dedication and care. It became our little paradise!

Two years later, my parents had the second villa built. Designed by my father and located just by the pool, with a large barbecue patio and a terrace on the top with beautiful sea views. In the meantime, my second child was born and my brother got married. We all fitted in the big house while my parents stayed in the original one, by the time already named as Casinhoto.

A few years later, my parents could afford to have the third villa built by the time my niece was born. So, each ‘family’ occupied one villa but, still, we were altogether! Despite our different daily routines, we gathered by the pool and shared some meals, particularly long “sardines” lunches, grilled on one of the barbecues.

Nowadays, we don’t spend so much time at the Casinhoto as we used to, but we feel the need to preserve and share this environment for our grandchildren and generations to come. We invite you to share it with us.

Very pleasant house close to the sea, place to go

  • 4 of 5
Spacious rent , quiet, very well equipped and totally functional. A nice swimming pool , allowing safe watergames. A charming owner, wishing to respond quickly and efficiently to all specific requests (she has done her best to have Internet installed during our stay), and always pleased to advise us to discover unusual places in the Algarve.
Must be there next holidays

Great Portuguese hospitality,

  • 5 of 5
Great, convenient, and friendly family retreat. The only place we rather stay away from our own home. It provides everything that we need with smile. Casinhoto has been and will be our annual family home away from home since 2011. Never feel lost or confused, all you need to do is ask Margarida. You can have your privacy and join the crowd any time you desire.

Casinhoto. Um local a voltar.

  • 5 of 5
Muito bom local para passar umas férias descansadas. Perto da praia (de carro) e com piscina em otimas condições para utilização quase privativa. Hospitalidade também é 5 estrelas. A repetir!

Very good - clean and tidy.

  • 4 of 5
We were a group of 9 adults and 6 children. All from Norway. We used both houses and found the villas and the garden to be very good! Clean and tidy. The pool was a natural gathering point during the day, and the evenings were mostly spent on the porch. The hostess, Margerida, was very friendly and we all had a very good time. We would love to come back another year.
Thanks!
