The villa has large steps up to a covered terrace with built-in seating and a picnic table, an absolutely delightful place in the heat of the summer. The kitchen has an electric hob/oven and fridge + more. Spacious lounge-dining room with a fireplace for the cooler winter evenings, patio doors to a large south facing, part covered terrace with more seating.

About Kaja

Hi there, my name is Kaja Decoz, I am Dutch and have lived and worked in the Algarve since 1982. This is my home, I love the Portuguese people, the mild climate, the sun and beaches, just divine! Mãe Home was built for the purpose of becoming a comfortable family holiday home. I invite you to share this lovely place and look forward to welcome you for a relaxing holiday in the Algarve and enjoy this beautiful country as I do.

Why Kaja chose Olhao region

Because it is private, at the end of a dirt track, NO passing traffic. There are various terraces with seating around the villa to eat 'al-fresco', to sit and relax, read or just 'chill'. There are hammocks to laze, there is fast WIFI. And Mãe Home is just a beautiful place. For reviews check ZOOVER

Ca. 15 min. drive to Fuzeta with a lagoon beach (ideal for young children), beach bars and the town with lots of restaurants and shops at walking distance. Short trip with a ferry boat to the sandy beach islands with a bar, NO traffic on the islands. Our favorite!

From Olhão at 5km you have regular ferries to 3 large beach islands with lagoon & Ocean beaches and a selection of restaurants. Km's of white sandy beaches to comb and for the nudist; distance yourself from the crowds and there is no problem!

Special treat for kids and convenient for the lazy or elderly; go to Pedras del Rie and take the little diesel train through the dunes to the Barril beach or for the fit & healthy, walk the 1km. At Barril you have a good selection of restaurants and again fabulous white sandy beaches with an area dedicated for nudists.

Recommended are day trips to the beaches West of Faro to explore a different scenery with cliff beaches, do boat trips around the cliffs or brave the steep stairs down to cosy little beaches. They are within easy reach through the motorway.

Fuseta at 12km is our preferred beach resort, here you have a beach in the lagoon which is ideal for young children and there are ferries that take you to the sandy beach island. From here you can also do stand-up-paddel in the lagoon or go on boat trips, do dolphin watching, kite-surfing, deep sea fishing A real treat to go to the beach for the day, have a BBQed fish with wine or beer and watch the sunset!

Water-amusement parks can be found throughout the Algarve, the nearest very good one is at Quarteira.

For more local information about activities or restaurants, there is an information brochure in the villa and I am always near to give tips and information!

I look forward to receive you in Mãe Home!
