Guestbook comments from the owner
In our comments book, Chris & Danny said..
What a privilege to share this beautiful part of the world with such a lovely family. You really added a personal touch to our holiday and you will forever be in our "Portugal Story". The villa is quaint and has so much character that it really starts feeling like home. This little spot was a big surprise and we are blessed to have found it. Thanks for all the small things that you did to make us feel like royalty. Your place beats any 5 star accommodation by far!
Lauren & Sloan....You have really created something special here....Your hearts are clearly in every detail. This place exudes romance and peacefulness and and we loved having it to come "home" to after our daily excursions. From Gonzalo's art on the wall to your charmingly rustic bathrooms. You have inspired us to create a similar life for ourselves. We can't wait to come back and visit you again next year for our 1st anniversary.

Casa de Pintor
A gem of a property owned and looked after by a lovely family. Melanie, Gonzales and their daughters are very kind and helpful making us feel very welcome. Peaceful away from it all in a beautiful countryside setting. A car is very useful. The property is clean and well maintained and very well equipped. This was our second visit to this property and will definitely be going back. Have no hesitation recommending it . Although set inland is only 15 minutes from excellent beaches. Restaurants close by at Guia and Val de Parra . An ideal base for anyone who wants peace and quiet.
Casa Sal studio - holiday hacienda!
A lovely self contained holiday studio on a beautiful, tranquil and peaceful estate. We were very welcomed by Melanie and her family and thoroughly enjoyed our short but much needed stay in a delightful part of the Algarve. We hope we can return again soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this !
What a beautiful place. If you want somewhere to relax this is the place.
Stress Free Holiday
Our stay at Casa de Pintor was amazing, if your looking for a stress free quiet holiday then this is the place for you, the cottage is beautiful with everything you need, the pool is refreshing. It is only a 20 min walk into Guia for local restaurants.
We did hire a car but did get ripped off (dont use Interrent)-think if we went again for just a week would not hire a car.
Melanie was there if we needed help but most of time we had the place to ourselves which was great.
The supermarket is only 5 mins away to stock up on essentials and the local beaches are beautiful at Gale and Everista has an amazing setting.
Would not hesitate in recommending
Beautiful property in old stables. Spacious and tastefully chic. Great private back garden and gorgeous pool to the front. Restful/relaxing week.
Near to Guia for good restaurants/bars and easy to access all of Algarve by car.

- Notes on accommodation: Casa do Pintor.... The Cottage has lots of delicate touches and open plan areas. Very arty....everything you could possibly wish for. There is nowhere like it anyway and the lucky people that have the chance to stay here have the holiday of a life time...that's why so many guests return year after year... Fabulous private garden which lies to the back of the property with sun loungers, BBQ, a real sun trap,as the sun rises on this side. Guests are always surprised by this area, very cozy just for you. Wood burner.....for the cooler months. Linen changed once a week, towels twice a week, beach towels not provided. Please refrain from smoking inside... Mosquito nets provided. Casa Antiga....Just perfect for couples who enjoy simple, romantic accomadation.....come here and unwind...tastefully decorated....stress free...pool view.... Outside: Set within 5 acres, totally private, peaceful paradise, great to get away from it all! The birds will come and the goats will pass by in the neighbouring fields. Stress free. Round 8 metre pool with magnificent views, all one level so no deep end, much better for pool games and relaxing. Please note that the pool is open to enjoy the views and there are no surrounding walls which would spoil the effect. Lots of space to sunbathe by the pool with different areas for sun or shade, really beautiful. So if you would like everything close by and yet be away from it all this is the place to be. Shared pool. For beach lovers...6 minute drive to lots of beaches ...everyone different all fabulous and so near!
