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 Estoi

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I have never visited the Algarve before, but after a wonderful two weeks, this certainly won't be our last visit..

The villa was just what we were looking for - quiet, secluded, private and fully equipped with everything you would want. I understand from Maria that she gets lots of repeat bookings hence why perhaps not many reviews and I too may be joining her regular visitors to this lovely spot. Maria and her husband were so welcoming and we also met her son one day when they came to water the garden. We arrived very late at night so Maria had organised to leave the key in a key safe for us to let ourselves in. Then came by the next morning to check we were settled in. The pool is lovely and the views down accross Faro spectacular. We often visited the local café O Rissol for tapas of a lunchtime.

Kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cutlery, plates etc... dishwasher,

cooker etc.

Sitting room comfortable and reasonable internet connection.

Bathrooms all cleaned and beds comfortable. Only one thing I wasn't too keen, the pillows were not great ( bit lumpy )

All in all I would highly recommend this villa if you are looking for chill out holiday as we were, but a car is essential for getting around.
