About The Owner

We are a professional couple who live in a beautiful part of Ireland, on the North Antrim Coast, we have three sons and three adorable Grandchildren, Harrison 4 yrs, Savannah 1yr and Truly 2 years. We purchased the charming Portuguese Style villa Casa dos Passarinhos {House of the Birds} in 2007 after holidaying and renting in the same exclusive area of Quinta dos Alamos, for many years. We choose an area suitable for family holidays - we can choose to go to the Tourist hot spots, Albufeira is just 5 minutes away by car or taxi, but we wanted just to get to know a little about the Portuguese way of village life. Also Guia a quaint village has such a lovely pace of life, but still close to the fabulous beaches of Central Algarve. But only 30 minutes from Faro Airport - Just fabulous!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose Guia

We fell in love with the Algarve and the gentle Portuguese people over 20 years ago, after exploring the area we decided the village of Guia was perfect for us. Relaxing by the pool in the heat of the day you can, close your eyes and smell the roses in the garden, the Jasmine climbing the wall beside the pool with masses of pretty creamy-yellow flowers to create a fragrance, pervading the summer air with their exquisite perfume. This must be heaven! or the Garden of Eden. If we feel like an ice cold G&T we can choose a large juicy Lemon/Lime from the tree, or just make some homemade lemonade - delicious! Breakfast on figs, grapes and oranges from the garden, with the hot crusty rolls fresh from the local home bakery. Star gazing or Moon bathing on the terrace after dinner. Wow!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is within walking distance to the many restaurants and shops in the village, so no need to take the car. Fish - 'catch of the day' always available. Ramires claims to be the first restaurant in the Algarve that served the local very popular dish of "Chicken Piri-Piri". Lota, a restaurant considered by locals as a one of the more interesting restaurants in which to partake of fresh fish and shellfish, Always open! Our villa is In a peaceful and tranquil area with cobbled tree lined streets, away from crowds, but close to Faro Airport only 30 minutes away.

We have the benefit of gas central heating for cooler evenings during the Winter months. Also a glass fronted log fire, to cuddle up and read books or watch TV, play games, just to chill and spend time together. WIFI.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Eleanor, just arrived back from your beautiful villa. We had a wonderful time, weather, wine and food were first class. Thank you for the use of your home, everything was just perfect. Best wishes Roddy and Denise. June 11

'Hi Eleanor, Just to say thanks for the villa - it is a really lovely place to spend time. The kids loved the pool and spent most of it on the inflatable dolphins (we had one as well so an extra bonus to find one there!) The villa was lovely and we felt really well looked after by your agent, the cleaner, the pool cleaner and the gardener!'

'Thanks again and if you need us for recommendations please let us know. Thank you for your help as well all went very smoothly with the airport transfer and the hire car.' Sally and family

'We wanted to say what a wonderful holiday we had. The villa was superb, it exceeded our expectations in every respect and as you know this was our first villa holiday so we feel spoiled completely. Everything was Superb, Thank You

Wonderful holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

Great villa with exceptional facilities do not do it justice.

Heated pool was gorgeous. Very well equipped kitchen, pool towels provided, so we did not need to pack those.

Pristine clean, very comfortable beds ....Super King in main bedroom.

The gardens were beautiful,lemon,orange and pomegranate trees.

Very peaceful, Just bird song to enjoy while relaxing by the pool, perfect!

Lots of local good value restaurants in Guia a very lively village.

Visit Gale Beach..... amazing at sunset, or just for a really cold beer!

We look forward to going back again next Summer, wonderful time was enjoyed by all.

Owner's Response: Thank you Cris & Family we were delighted with your 5 Star Review of our family villa. Glad you found everything you needed for a well deserved break and relaxed and enjoyed your stay. The restaurants in Guia are amazing ...great value ..... plenty of choice for everyone. The local Sports Restaurant in the village beside the little church, is very popular for lunch and evening meals under the palm trees, just watching the world go slowly by! We hope you helped yourself to the lemons from our tree........ for the G & T's! Or just to make homemade lemonade. We love to hear from our guests and to know they found everything for their perfect holiday at our villa. We would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards, Eleanor & Roger

Review of villa in, Guia Portugal

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this amazing villa twice a year since 2010 with my partner and my young daughter who is now 6. It has every comfort and luxury available, amazing space, beautiful kitchen and spacious bedrooms though my daughter loves to sleep on the incredibly huge fold out sofa bed in the living room in front of the log fire when we stay in October and the nights are colder. The property is maintained to a really high standard, the pool is wonderful and kept at a good temperature, the many patio areas provide the irresitable temptation to dine at home - and the local supermarkets - like the Oceania in Gale have great value local produce for a barbecue, evening meal or leisurely breakfast. I was also greatly impressed (as my daughter was only 2 and 1/2 years old when we first stayed here) that the villa provided a buggy, bedrail, etc. Also as my daughter has got older we spend a lot of time in the maintained grounds beyond the garden gate playing football, hopscotch or just blowing bubbles - very relaxing. The local restaurants are very good though we do have a particular favorite - it is situated down beside the old off licence and looks like someones front room from the outside but if you go in through the front room that has a small bar , one sofa and a tv , it opens up to a huge restaurant inside. The Piri - piri chicken here is fabulous and all the local famillies eat here. There is a wonderful beach close by in Gale where we have spent many a happy afternoon - I would also reccommend a visit to Algoz Crazy World Zoo which is a fantastic day out for 10 euros per adult and 6 euros for children and seniors. I would not reccommend Zoomarine - too expensive for very little. The neighbouring village of Alcantarilha has it's very own small church of bones. Also within walking distance to the villa is Cliff Richards villa and vineyard - worth a look for Cliff Richard fans - wine tasting tours are available. The biggest shopping centre in the algarve is located just up from the villa - it can be walked to if you follow the back roads. In the village of GUia the sports bar provides a lovely breakfast and just across the road the local estate agents also books tours to everywhere in the algarve - Alte, Silves to see the castle, the gypsy market in Loule, Portamao, even Lisbon and Gibraltar. Everything for a perfect holiday is at your fingertips in this villa - the relaxation of Guia with the bustle of Albuferia under 10 euros away by Taxi. Wonderful.

Owner's Response: Thank you Gillie for all the information you have included for potential guests to our family villa. We love to share our holiday home with others and try to make it very special for everyone. The choice of restaurants in Guia is just fabulous and each person seems to find a favourite during their stay. I must try your favourite next time we are in Guia, it sounds very authentic and Portuguese. We also love the sports bar, it is very reasonable and we love to eat lunch under the palm trees and watch the world go by......... with a very large cold beer..... of course! Dreaming of our next visit already! Gale beach is our favourite,The paradise beach. No doubt, one of the most beautiful in the world. My favourite place in Algarve. Perfect for love. During our last visit in January we really enjoyed the boardwalk along to Salgados through the nature reserve, where we watched the flamingoes and baby turtles it is a must for nature lovers give it a try! In July and August Gale Beach it can be really busy however be a little adventurous and walk / climb a little and you will find secret places with no tourists. The waves are crashing and the water cold, the sand is hot and soft. Rock pools for the kids to poke around for crabs and fish. Out of season its quiet and a fantastic walk. Three beach bars catering for all tastes and one has now added a super cool outdoor evening bar. Wonderful sunsets around 9 pm in Summer.

Further Details:

2 bed Villa. Just a note to thank you both so very much for sharing your beautiful holiday home in Guia. Casa dos Passarinhos is a beautiful, calm, comfortable "home from home" and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

It was our first visit to Portugal and we managed to get out and about in the car to explore the coast and the mountains but to be honest we never wanted to spend much time away from the villa. Our first villa break, it was everything we had hoped for, so comfortable and so well equipped! Richard and I had a conversation one sunny afternoon while relaxing by the pool asking one another what things we were missing from home and we both agreed that, apart from family members, we had everything we needed right there, many many thanks for making our holiday so special.

Our favourite pastime was relaxing on the loungers watching the birds coming and going, and then a dip in the lovely pool to cool down. We loved the outdoor seating areas, where we spent most of our time, the pool, the big kitchen, comfy bed, pretty tiled bathrooms, BIG TV (wow), pretty garden and the welcome pack of food and drink was exceptionally good and very much appreciated after a long journey.

And many thanks to your fabulous management team Lynn and Adrian, who clearly work very hard to make sure that guests want for nothing. Please pass on our thanks and regards to them.

We didn't want to leave, and hope that we'll return.

Very best regards,

Jane and Richard
