The Algarve region
the Algarve is Portugal's premier holiday destination, with pretty beaches, brash resorts and picturesque whitewashed towns that flood with foreigners when summer arrives. While the party atmosphere isn't for everyone, the setting is undeniably beautiful.
Tavira, set along a peaceful river, remains elegant and laid-back, with a history dating back to the Romans. The capital of the region, Faro, has a more Portuguese feel than some, and a fascinating medieval quarter
Olhão is surrounded by 'ilhas', sand spit island beaches, which protect the marshy lagoon, Reserva Natural da Ria Formosa, an environmental and conservation area for birds and marine life. The two main Olhão beaches are Ilha da Culatra ('Island of Culatra') and Ilha da Armona ('Island of Armona') and they are served all year with regular ferry crossings from Olhão's jetty, near to the municipal gardens. Ilha da Culatra is the bigger of the two islands and has permanent year round residents as well as summer visitors. The western end of Ilha da Culatra ,with the lighthouse, is known as Ilha do Farol. The next ilha just to the west of Farol is Ilha Deserta, a beautiful island with nothing more than a stretch of beautiful soft sand backed by vegetation and a single restaurant.

"I really recommend this house!"
I've been staying at Ricardo's house for the past 2 summers and I only have great memories.
The house is cosy and clean and has all the commodities one may wish for. Ricardo lives in the estate but I always felt free to walk around and I always enjoyed total independence during the time I stayed there.
The place is surrounded by nature and is perfect if you want to switch off from the city stress.
I loved getting to know Ricardo and Edite (his lovely wife). They are really friendly and genuine people, it looked like we had been friends forever. Incredible hosts, always willing to help in anything they could.
They recommended the best beaches and restaurants and the best places to go party.
I truly recommend the boat ride to Fuzeta and Armona Island in their sailing boat. You will enjoy privileged views of the Algarve and almost deserted islands.
100% recommended! I will stay in his house every time I go to the Algarve.
Thank you for your kind review! We do hope that when ever you get to this part of Algarve you can pay us a visit.

"My home away from home!"
I had the pleasure of staying with Ricardo twice in my visits to Portugal and I absolutely recommend his wooden house. The surroundings are very peaceful and you can really switch off from the rest of the world feeling nature all around you. In the heart of the Algarve and with easy access to all the main routes and attractions, Ricardo's house is a place surrounded by nature and almost untouched by man. The house has all the commodities and is exquisitely decorated, allowing you to relax and feel at home. As a host Ricardo is as good as it gets. Open minded, flexible and very kind where the impressions he left on me. The deep knowledge he has from the area is certainly beneficial to any traveller. He knows all the good places to eat and visit, the less crowded beaches, the best places to fish and where to go if you want to have fun. If you want to see the true Algarve and reconnect with nature this is the place to go. Oh! And don't miss out on the boat rides. He will show you the most beautiful coves and amazing sunsets!
Thank you for your kind review. We hope that when ever you get the chance to visit the Algarve again we would be your option as hosts.
