About the Owner

This owner has been advertising with owners direct since 2004, and completing bookings by BACS, one of the recommended forms of direct payment. Online booking incurs a fee of between 6 - 8% of the owners listed price, plus VAT, payable by the holiday maker to owners direct'We prefer payment by bank transfer to avoid extra booking fees for our guests. We are a professional couple who live in a beautiful part of Ireland, on the North Antrim Coast, we have three sons and three adorable Grandchildren, Harrison 4 yrs, Savannah 1yr and Truly 2 years. We purchased the charming Portuguese Style villa Casa dos Passarinhos {House of the Birds} in 2007 after holidaying and renting in the same exclusive area of Quinta dos Alamos, for many years. We choose an area suitable for family holidays - we can choose to go to the Tourist hot spots, Albufeira is just 5 minutes away by car or taxi, but we wanted just to get to know a little about the Portuguese way of village life. Also Guia a quaint village has such a lovely pace of life, but still close to the fabulous beaches of Central Algarve. But only 30 minutes from Faro Airport - Just fabulous!

From the Owner

We fell in love with the Algarve and the gentle Portuguese people over 20 years ago, after exploring the area we decided the village of Guia was perfect for us. Relaxing by the pool in the heat of the day you can, close your eyes and smell the roses in the garden, the Jasmine climbing the wall beside the pool with masses of pretty creamy-yellow flowers to create a fragrance, pervading the summer air with their exquisite perfume. This must be heaven! or the Garden of Eden. If we feel like an ice cold G&T we can choose a large juicy Lemon/Lime from the tree, or just make some homemade lemonade - delicious! Breakfast on figs, grapes and oranges from the garden, with the hot crusty rolls fresh from the local home bakery. Star gazing or Moon bathing on the terrace after dinner. Wow!

Further Details:

2 bed Villa. Just a note to thank you both so very much for sharing your beautiful holiday home in Guia. Casa dos Passarinhos is a beautiful, calm, comfortable "home from home" and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

It was our first visit to Portugal and we managed to get out and about in the car to explore the coast and the mountains but to be honest we never wanted to spend much time away from the villa. Our first villa break, it was everything we had hoped for, so comfortable and so well equipped! Richard and I had a conversation one sunny afternoon while relaxing by the pool asking one another what things we were missing from home and we both agreed that, apart from family members, we had everything we needed right there, many many thanks for making our holiday so special.

Our favourite pastime was relaxing on the loungers watching the birds coming and going, and then a dip in the lovely pool to cool down. We loved the outdoor seating areas, where we spent most of our time, the pool, the big kitchen, comfy bed, pretty tiled bathrooms, BIG TV (wow), pretty garden and the welcome pack of food and drink was exceptionally good and very much appreciated after a long journey.

And many thanks to your fabulous management team Lynn and Adrian, who clearly work very hard to make sure that guests want for nothing. Please pass on our thanks and regards to them.

We didn't want to leave, and hope that we'll return.

Very best regards,

Jane and Richard
