We offer a number of country cottages and apartment within the grounds of a charming country house which forms part of an original Quinta or Farm of ten acres together with a walled garden located close to Alcantarilha Gare Railway Station. Located some 35 minutes from Faro Airport in the Central Algarve. The name of this cottage is D. Dinis. Our prices are very modest and this will enable you to take a longer break than you anticipated.

Our cottage is named Dom Dinis and comprise as follows. Separate Double bedroom, separate bathroom with shower, combined lounge /diner/ kitchen and most importantly an outdoor terrace with dining table and chairs for al fresco dining.. In the cottage can sleep 4 at no extra charge. Please contact us for arrangements Total area twenty five square meters. Winter daytime temperatures are normally between 17 and 20 degrees centigrade, the walled garden provides a natural sun trap. There is an outdoor shared swimming/pool , an outside BBQ area for use by guests. On request, join the family for a typical Portuguese meal including aperitif, wine and digestive.

This rural location provides a peaceful contrast to the busier seaside resorts, although the location is just fifteen minutes by car from the beaches of Armacao de Pera and Praia Grande. An excellent central base for exploring the Algarve. Zoo Marine, just fifteen minutes away provides a fantastic day out for all the family.

Relaxation massage available on site on request

The local area is ideal for walking or cycling. We have bicycles to rent on site. We also arrange guided walks at the weekends with Nuno, our host, who is a keen walker, having completed a nine hundred kilometer walk to Santiago Compostela recently. Optional weekend walks are normally four to six kilometers or more, if required, so not too strenuous. We also have a docile horse called Luzia which is available now and then for guests with some experience of riding.

Because of our rural location, a car is an obvious advantage for shopping and visiting nearby places of interest, such as, the ancient former capital of the Algarve, Silves , some fifteen minutes by car. We also arrange traditional Fado, the Portuguese music nights, which are also held in Silves. Other nearby towns are Albufeira, Portimao, Armacao de Pera and Alvor . Algarve shopping center is just a fifteen minutes' drive.

You can see some photos of the nearby surrounding area including the Café Cabrita for coffees and drinks is just 200 yards away. The rustic restaurant Ribalta some 2 kilometers away and for those of you wanting live music, the Feedback Café is located some 2 kilometers away. Our nearest local food shop is also located two kilometers away.

Our location provided an excellent base to explore the Algarve. Our rental rates are extremely attractive and our long stay rates are even more attractive. Our cottages are fully equipped for day to day living and also include TV, WI FI internet access and self-service laundry.

We look forward to welcoming you. Your hosts are Emanuela and Nuno
