l have travelled and lived all over the world, and finally found my paradise here in the Algarve.
Melanie purchased this villa in 1998

Stunning beaches just a short drive away, Albufeira 6 kilometers.
Peaceful paradise with everything close by

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.

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.
We have just returned from a fantastic week in this beautiful place. We stayed in Casa Do Pintor which is a stunning property with every convenience you could wish for and a lovely private garden to the back, perfect for relaxing. We dined in on several evenings, but there is a good choice of restaurants in Guia which is a pleasant 20 minute stroll away.
Melanie and her family are lovely - you know where to find somebody if you need to, but they are never intrusive.
This truly was one of our best holidays to date and we certainly hope to return!
What a beautiful place. If you want somewhere to relax this is the place.
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.
