About Joao (Mike)

I'm an architect and my passion is restoration of old farms and cottages

Joao (Mike) purchased this farmhouse in 1999


Nearest Airport
17 Kilometres

The villa is located in Corotelo, 5km from the hamlet of Bordeira, not far from the attractive village of St. Barbara de Nexe and midway between the busy town of Loulé, where a bustling farmer’s market takes place every Saturday morning, and São Brás, around 5km away, towns where you will find a reasonable number of good restaurants.

Nice time away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for a week and really enjoyed the stay and nearby locations. The property is 15-20 mins. away from most beaches.

The villa was comfortable with a nice private pool. Only complain we had was there were no essential supplies like toilet paper, tissue rolls, detergents etc and we had to buy everything. It is difficult to buy these items just for a week's stay. Luckily, we had a car and there are few stores 10 minutes away.

Mike was very helpful and easy to reach. He personally came by to introduce himself and give us some local tips.

We look forward to renting a villa again in the future!

Bonnes prestations dans vallée retirée

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passés 2 semaines dans cette agréable endroit au calme et situé dans une vallée avec belle vue.

Bien équipé, bien située dans le sud du Portugal .

Il faut absolument avoir une voiture pour les déplacements .

Le propriétaire est très gentil et disponible pour vous informer sur les lieux à voir.

Piscine de petite taille mais largement suffisante pour 4 personnes .

Nous recommandons cette villa pour des vacances au calme pour petite famille de deux adultes avec deux enfants voir 3 .

Le Sud est du portugal est équipé de belles plages de sable au le Sud ouest

à partir de GENAGIL , les plages sont entourées de magnifiques roches , Sagres à voir absolument !!!!

Bonnes vacances

Ideal für Natur- und Kulturinteressierte

  • 5 of 5

Casa Poente: ein Ferienhaus mit einem sehr guten Preis – Leistungsverhältnis, das stilsicher und authentisch eingerichtet ist und somit eine rustikale Atmosphäre mit genügendem Komfort verbindet. Der Handtuchwechsel und die Zwischenreinigung der Wohnung innerhalb einer Woche unterstrich den Eindruck von Sauberkeit und Gepflegtheit. Vom Freisitz aus genießt man einen Blick auf ein Feld mit Öl- und Mandelbäumen, der ein Gefühl von Ruhe und Weite vermittelt. Die Lage des Hauses ist für Kultur- und Naturbegeisterte - vor allem Vogelbeobachter - interessant, da eine Reihe von sehenswerten Städten sowie das große Naturschutzgebiet "Ria Formosa" schnell zu erreichen sind. Der Besitzer empfing uns sehr herzlich und gab uns das Gefühl, für alle Belange der kompetente Ansprechpartner zu sein.

Perfect rural retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Casa Poente, a compact villa but not missing a thing. Perfect pool for young children, peaceful location night and day, felt very secure. Lots of interesting places around but a car is a necessity. Would definitely recommend and use again if returning to this area.

time to relax !

  • 4 of 5

This villa is great for a small family or couple wanting to relax for a week (or more!). It is in a quiet spot but has great road access to the Algarve coast, Tavira being a favourite of ours. The villa has all the appliances that you would need, the only exception being air conditioning, though we stayed during a hot August and a couple of small fans were adequate. Mikel the host was very helpful and the property was clean on arrival. The pool is a bonus in such a small villa and in general the villa was a good price. Would happily go back or recommend.

Perfect for a small family

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just had a relaxing week's holiday in Casa Poente. The location was spot on - about 20 mins drive from Faro airport and you're into the Algarve countryside. It's central enough to explore all of the Algarve - takes about 1 1/2 hours to reach either the coast in the West or the Spanish border in the East or you can easily travel inland up the Serras. There are lovely views of the local countryside from the property. There's a small mini mercado just down the road which can supply basic needs.

The casa is small but comfortable and comes with all the facilities you need to make you feel at home and at the end of hot and tiring day sight seeing there's the pool that you can take a reviving swim in and then sit and watch the sun go down over the neighbouring hills. We had a lovely time at this casa.
