The Algarve region

The coastal towns of the eastern Algarve are ‘real’ towns, far more under-developed than those in the Central and Western area of the Algarve. If you are after a more relaxed style of holiday, away from the hordes of tourists and water parks, then the Eastern Algarve may be the place for you. Further inland, the area is completely undeveloped. Small rustic villages nestle in the remote countryside. You’ll find the local inhabitants going about their daily business, the same today as they did many generations before.

Sao Bras de Alportel

The town of Sao Bras de Alportel is quiet and peaceful and is around 20 km north of Faro. It was once an affluent town in the days when it was the busy cork producing capital of Portugal. Today life is more tranquil, but you can still see around you the trappings of wealth in some of the larger houses, with intricate stonework and decorated in tiles. If you’re looking for a simple existence along side the traditional white houses, narrow cobbled streets and the remaining local craftsmen, it may be a good choice for your Algarve holiday this year. It is more suited to those of you who want to get away from it all and disappear back in time, in a traditional Algarve village. If you like walking, eating good food and want a bit of history, then you’ll like the place. If you want more from your holiday, as long as you have a car, then the rest of the Algarve is waiting for you. Many people come to this part of the Algarve for walking tours and holidays. Basing yourself in São Brás, or Sao Romao, you are ideally positioned for walking in the Barrocal region. This region consists of the plains, which lie between the Atlantic Ocean and the hills to the north. It is a barren region mainly populated by traditional farmers living in their small, isolated hamlets. For a taste of more recent history, then visit the António Bentes Cultural Centre which houses the Algarvean Costume Ethnographic Museum. Guided tours are available if you want to get the most out of it. The museum has typical 19th/20th Century Algarvean costumes. There is also an exhibition of farm implements and a number of old vehicles, from wagons to carriages. It is open weekdays, although closed for lunch and only open afternoons at the weekend. Rua Dr Jose Dias Sancho 61
8150 Sao Bras de Alportel. If you’re here at the right time of year there are a couple of Festivals to be enjoyed. The first is at Easter, where people come from all over for the flowers and Easter Day parade. The second is the Festival of the Mountains (Feira da Serra), which takes place each year at the end of July, with food and drink, music, dancing and displays of local crafts and horsemanship. There are a couple of markets to visit; the Gipsy Market on the 3rd Sunday of the month and a weekly market each Saturday. Loule is also famous for its weekly Saturday market and is not far from Sao Romao - a perfect town for shopping and a bit of sight seeing too.

“Stunning”

Had a great two weeks here in this lovely restored farmhouse , full of charm and we all loved it . Owners are really friendly and we couldn't have wished for more . Will be returning again

“If you want a relaxing, get away from it all type holiday, then this is the villa for you!”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

We have been going to Portugal for many years now and have always had a great time staying here. It is a very comfortable, well equipped family home which caters for all ages. The bedrooms are bright and welcoming, particularly the terrace room, which overlooks the fabulous pool. There are plenty sun loungers, inflatable pool toys. umbrellas and tables and chairs for everyone’s enjoyment and comfort. There is a brick built barbeque by the pool for your convenience. There is a very friendly bar and restaurant just 5 minutes walk away where you can eat amazing langoustine and drink a very reasonable white wine! A car is essential if you want to visit the amazing beaches, although we had a holiday one year and used the local taxi service, which worked out to be the same cost as hiring a car. I guarantee that you will want to return, once you have experienced just how relaxing a holiday in this villa actually is. Enjoy!

“Prefect holiday .lovely place and lovely area can't wait to go back there ...!”

Can't thank you enough Caroline, many thanks Craig, Wendy and Charlie.

“Most relaxing holiday ever”

Reviewed 16 Sep 2012

We recently spent a fantastic family holiday at Casa Quintinha; the third time we have done so. The villa provides the opportunity for the most relaxing holiday in a quiet location. There are a number of restaurants within easy driving distance or a really nice local bar and restaurant only 5 minutes walk away. The villa itself is very well appointed and has been tastefully furnished . The pool is an excellent size, much larger than we have normally experienced in other villas. We will definitely be booking this villa again.

“Fantastic place to stay, whether you want peace or to explore.”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2012

This is a real "home from home" - so very comfortable and with everything needed for a relaxing restful stay. My friend used the pool every day while I reclined on a sun bed. The local cafe owners are extremely helpful and serve good food and good drinks, both non and alcoholic varieties. They also provide a free wi-fi service, which my friend used. The location is not only a short journey from the airport, but is also a good base from which to explore the immediate countryside, towns and villages. The information folder in the house recommends excellent restaurants and excursions and we totally agreed! We will be back.
