About Joao

As an architect I love to do this renovation works on villas on the Algarve's countryside. This villa was renovated in 2005 and well maintained since then. It is on the rental market since 2007.

Joao purchased this villa in 2003


Car: necessary

The villa is located near the historical village of Estoi, not far from the attractive village of St. Barbara de Nexe and 17km the busy town of Loulé, where a bustling farmer’s market takes place every Saturday morning, and São Brás, around 5km away, towns where you will find a good number of good restaurants. Fisherman Villa of Olhão, with it's typical fish market and fantastic beach islands that you can reach by public boats, are 20m away

Other Activities: Sightseeing, good restaurants, traditional food markets

Skøn villa med helt special atmosfære.

  • 5 of 5

Denne villa har de perfekte rammer til en dejlig ferie. Der er kælet for detaljerne og man opdager nye detaljer hver dag. Der er virkelig tænkt over tingene både indenfor og udenfor. Udsigten er 180 grader mod landskab med bjerge og byer i baggrunden.

Vi følte os meget velkomne og godt taget imod af husets ejer, som også gav gode tips til oplevelser i området. Fordi vi ankom sent var der sørget for en morgenmadspakke til næste dag. Det er service !

Hus og pool var rene og indbydende.

Jeg manglede et større spejl i det grønne badeværelse el. i soveværelset ved siden af. Min familie ville gerne have haft en større fjernsyn.

Jeg kan kun anbefale denne villa med omgivelser, og har allerede gjort det.

As good as it looks in the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

This really is a special place. 6 adults + 2 toddlers stayed for a week and there was plenty of space to spread out and not get in each others way. The pool was fantastic, as were the perfect little seating areas for a cold glass of white wine to watch the sun go down.

The area is beautiful - rural, but with easy access to the more developed parts of the Algarve when you want/need it. Olhao was probably our favourite because of the excellent restaurants (around 20 minutes away).

The only thing to be aware of is that there are no household items there at all - you will need to bring salt/pepper/dishwasher tablets/bin bags etc etc. A minor thing, but caught us by surprise a little.

Would 100% recommend this place and already daydreaming about going back.

Perfekte Unterkunft !

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit Freunden in der Villa und fühlten uns ab dem ersten Tag wie zuhause. Alles war sauber und exakt wie auf den Fotos. Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen - schöne Zimmer - toller Pool - schöne Aussicht mit Sonnenuntergang - 20 Minuten zum Meer. Sehr zu empfehlen.

The Loveliest Villa we have ever stayed in !!!

  • 5 of 5

Possibly the lovliest villa we have stayed in. We would and have recommended to our friends. Beautifully decorated , peaceful and quiet. Joao and his staff were all very pleasant and a pleasure to meet. A little bit of Paradise in Murta, Portugal.

Die Villa ist einfach toll, alles bestens gepflegt, sehr sauber und liebevoll ausgestattet. Wenn man Ruhe und Entspannung sucht, ist dieses Anwesen die beste Option. Wir waren zu sechst mit Kinder und jeder war begeistert. Joao ist sehr hilfsbereit und gibt hervorragende Tips für Ausflüge. Alles in Allem: Hervorragend

Einfach unglaublich genial!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Es ist kaum zu beschreiben. Diese Ferien waren einfach genial. Vom Anfang bis zum Ende hat einfach alles gestimmt. Bereits der erste Kontakt mit Joao war perfekt. Als wir ankamen, dies war spät in der Nacht, mussten wir entdecken dass die Bilder nicht lügen. Einfach alles wie im Prospekt. Nichts gelogen und verschönert!! Joan hat uns sogar einen kleinen Einkauf mit Lebensmittel in die Küche gestellt. Eine so schöne und geräumige Villa hatten wir noch nie. Die Betreuung von Joan einfach perfekt. Er hat uns geholfen, erklärt und wertvolle Tipps gegeben. Vielen Dank. Der Ort ist sehr ruhig, so richtig zum wohlfühlen und ausspannen. Perfekt auch für Kinder. Wir waren zu sechst und hatten mehr als genug Platz. Während 2 Wochen konnten wir die Algarve erkunden und wir haben es wirklich genossen. Die Reinigungsdamen waren sehr diskret und vertrauensvoll. Die Handtücher wurden während der 2 Wochen 3x gewechselt und am Samstag wurde das ganze Haus gereinigt. Auch der Pool wurde mehrmals gereinigt. Wir hatten viel Glück mit dem Wetter, so konnten wir sogar im April den Pool fast täglich benutzen. Wir hoffen, dass wir diesen schönen Ort in Zukunft wieder einmal besuchen können.

Vielen Dank Joao für die perfekten Ferien!!!!!
