About Sergio & Sonia Afonso
We are a family of four; Sergio, Sonia and our two rowdy girls, Amelie and Angela. We all currently live in London with our chocolate brown Labrador called Maia. Although we met in London both our families are originally from the north of Portugal, near a city called Braga, high up in the rural green mountains. Although it’s very different to the Algarve it’s an amazing area, with spectacular views, the weather is normally much cooler, although the summer can be just as hot as in the Algarve. As a family, we love our holidays and are fortunate to have travelled to many different countries and have stayed in many different places and felt we wanted a holiday home from home. The Algarve is one of the sunniest places in Europe with over 300 days of sun a year, this together with the easy access from London, we felt that it was the perfect location. (Speaking the language also helped.) With a hectic lifestyle in London, running our own translation services company www.absolutetranslations.com means we rarely get the chance to switch off, and coming here to Casa da Fonte does the trick! We now come here thought-out the year, the short flight and abundance of airlines allows for reasonably priced tickets. We love our food and we often go to the local restaurants, although we also like to go and pick our fresh fish and vegetables at the local market for a BBQ in the evening once the sun has gone down.

Why Sergio & Sonia Afonso chose Telheiro
Why this property? We recently purchased the villa in 2015 and fell in love with its character and charm. Sitting at the top of a small hill, the villa has amazing views stretching to the hills and the sea. A view which is equally impressive at night with all the town lights and stars above across into the sea. The location was always a big factor for us as we wanted a place with a view. We chose central Algarve because of the easy access to all different areas, restaurants and beaches. Santa Barbara de Nexe area offered us all this without being in the middle traffic. The house is located no more than 15 minutes by car of some of the best beaches, golf courses, local markets, shopping centres and the old main town of Loule. The main road N125 and A22 motorway stretching the whole of the Algarve are also both within 10 minutes’ drive of the villa. We also love that Casa da Fonte is a detached and contemporary villa with architecture that blends in with that of the traditional houses of the Algarve.
What makes this Villa unique
Unique Benefits? The heated/cooled pool make any time a good time for a dip. The back gardens of the property are maintained throughout the year with tropical plants and flowers, mature canopy trees allowing for shady areas during the midday sun, a perfect place to relax in one of the hammocks.

Beautiful property and house. After a day of sightseeing or the beach it was great to get back and relax by the pool and enjoy a barbecue. Kids had fun playing a game of ping pong or foosball.
Thank you for your kind words, we are happy that you enjoyed the villa and hope that you will visit again. Sonia & Sergio
Beautiful Get Away!
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay at Sergio & Sonia’s property. The house was perfect and exactly what we had hoped for and was a fitting end to our amazing trip around Portugal.
Hi Claudia, thank you for your nice review and we hope that you will come again one day. Kind regards

Our great stay at Casa da Fonte
We had a great stay at this lovely villa set in a peaceful and secluded location.
It has all the facilities necessary for an effortless stay and is beautifully presented.
Whilst staying we had a family wedding near by and the villa was a great base from which to operate.
We also had our six month old grandson with us and he was able to enjoy his first dip in the swimming pool.
On a practical note there are supermarkets nearby in Loule and a number of nice restaurants in the small towns and villages around Telihero.
Sergio and Sonia were easily accessible online and came back quickly. Housekeeper Gloria was lovely as well.
In summary a great place for a relaxing family holiday.
Wonderful and beautiful vacation
We were 2 families with 2 kids each, Villa is in a stunning and comfortable location but a car is a must. We enjoyed the facilities and Sergio and Sonia are really helpful. Kids also enjoyed the house, we definitely recommend this to friends. Wifi worked brilliantly worked for work also. It may be great if the temperatures were a little bit higher.
Exceptional Vacation Property
We had the great fortune of finding this amazing villa with a breathtaking view. There were three couples in our party. The amenities and premises are newly renovated with all the comforts of home plus more. The owners Sergio and Sonia were so helpful with their recommendations and suggestions for local sites to see. We would recommend this place to everyone. Having a vehicle to see the highlights of the Algave is a must.
Thanks Sergio and Sonia and family for the best vacation we have had so far.
