About Maria

Now I am retired, but I worked as Travel Agent in British Companies and lately, as hotelier in one hotel which belong to the Le Méridien Chain. My husband worked in a Bank and we live in the town Faro - Algarve. We have one son and one daughter, both adults. We come from the Algarve where we have framily and friends, but we also like to travel and make friends wherever we go. The property is personally managed by us and we will be more than pleased to meet you upon arrival at the villa and furnish you any information and advice on the best places to visit to help to make your holiday as much enjoyable as possible. We speak Portuguese, English, French, Spanish.

Maria purchased this villa in 1996

Why Maria chose Azinheiro

It is a quiet place, where we enjoy excellent privacy, with beautiful views from the sea and the mountains. It is a peaceful and calm location but very easy to get everywhere. We get across the Algarve relatively quickly. The evenings are charming especially because of breathtaking view of Faro and we can also enjoy stunning sunsets.

There is a neighboring house some 200m away,

a snack-bar and a mini market in the nearest village 1.5km from the villa. Restaurants just minutes away and a day out at the beach can be enjoyed at the lovely long uncrowded white sandy beach of Fuzeta, a manageable 11kms distant. A little closer, the port town of Olhão has some fabulous fish restaurants and has a ferry service to superb beaches on the delightful off-shore islands.

What makes this villa unique

Casa S. Miguel is escapism in a big way! It nestles atop one of the Algarve's highest points with spectacular views sweeping southwards to the ocean in the south and across the valley to the hills which flank the Algarve's northern limits. The villa is set in its own grounds, with sand and rock gardens falling away beneath the swimming pool, and flanked by a hillside clad with olive trees.

Great secluded villa with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely peaceful secluded Portuguese casa in the heart of rural Algarve.

Very well equipped throughout.

Pool area surrounded by lovely gardens and fruit trees with great views of the valley below towards the sea in the distance.

Very helpful & friendly owners Maria & Carlos who kept us supplied with plates of figs from thier own gardens.

Great place to escape the bustling coastal resorts.

Thank you Maria and Carlos

Sehr schönes ruhiges Haus. Mitten in einer hügeligen ruhigen Landschaft. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und freundlich - und es hat Alles reibungslos geklappt. Zur Ankunft haben wir sogar Lebensmittel bekommen da mit wir am ersten Abend etwas zu Essen hatten :-)

Das Haus ist mit allem was man braucht eingerichtet,der Pool ist schön und man hat den ganzen Tag Sonne.

Können wir nur weiter empfehlen,herlicher Blick von der Terrasse auf Faro !!!!

Man braucht aber ein Auto zum Einkaufen!!
