The Algarve region

The old town of Loule is a very short distant away, this is said to be where the Carnivals that are so famous in Brazil originated. Loule town itself has an old castle and tight lanes where shoppers can browse for hours and taking in the cafe culture, relaxing on route.

The nearest beach of Faro Island is a short drive as is Quinta Do Lago and Vale do Lobo and many more are with 30 minutes. Quick links to the motorway gives you an opportunity to take a day out to Spain as the border is some 40 minutes away towards the East.

Santa Barbara de Nexe

Santa Barbara De Nexe is a delightful Portuguese location that still maintains it charm, with small bars and great restaurants a short drive away as well as all amenities it is a great place to get away from it all without travelling


The area is on the foothills which can be clearly seen from the coast and this lends itself to great see and mountain views.

"Wonderful villa - home from home, ticks every box!"

We stayed here as a family of four (2 kids aged 3 & 5) with grandparents joining for us the second week. It was all we had hoped for and more. We loved it as it was far away from any maddening crowds… More

"Beautiful home, perfect for up to 4 couples"

Wonderful home that was perfect for our group (four couples). You must have a car to enjoy this area as there is no shopping within walking distance. Old down Faro was a good day trip as was the wine… More

"Great villa for large group"

We were a four couple group and what can be better than a bathroom with each bedroom. The pictures of the villa don't really show how beautiful the view and setting is. The hosts met us at the … More

"Spacious villa in a great location"

We had a fantastic stay in this villa and found the elevated position, village life nearby and close proximity to the local road network made it for us (the roads are so easy we were exploring most days). Very well specced with lots of space to enjoy and relax. Would definitely recommend and we'll be going again

"Excellent - spacious - high quality - very private"

Having no previous experience of the private villa rental market, I was somewhat apprehensive at the prospect of paying a substantial amount of money, to people I had never met, for a villa which might not even be theirs.

I needn't have worried. The owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with and the villa is every bit as good as it appears in the listing. Spacious, extremely well-appointed and presented, it has everything you could want – much more akin to a very comfortable home than a holiday let.

Its only potential drawback is also a great strength - as long as you expect it. The villa is some way from anything remotely “touristy” and, thanks to that, is extremely private and peaceful, with an extraordinary panoramic view.

We had a wonderful stay. The quality of the villa including all the fixtures and fittings are first class. On top of that the views are to die for. We will be back.… More

"If there's a better villa for hire in the area, I have yet to see one"

Casa do Arco is a real find: just far enough away from the rush and crowds down closer to the coast to feel private, yet with sensational views to make you feel you're somewhere special.Four genu… More
