Serilia and I live in Canada but spend our summers in Portugal. The Villa was built in the 80s by Serilia's parents when they moved back to Portugal. We did a complete renovation a few years ago of the main house, Villa Peixe Rei, and adapted some secondary buildings to be the Vivenda dos Pavoes unit. We do the gardening and cleaning and when asked provide advice for local goings-on.
Villa Peixe Rei has 3 bedrooms, large garden with lawn, pool, barbecue and sleeps 6. It is a modern Villa (built in 1980, remodelled in 2001), with views of the sea (Ria Formosa) and the mountain (Cerro de Sao Miguel). Located in the centre of a vast orange grove, the Villa is surrounded by a magnificent garden, with a sunny section, around the pool, and a shady paradise under an ancient mulberry tree. Around the Barbecue, a grape vine trellis, shades a paved area where a table can be installed so your grilled foods can jump from the fire into your plate.
Far from the maddening crowd, surrounded by orange trees, yet close enough to Olhao and Moncarapacho that if you ran out of milk or bread, you will be back in 5 minutes.
15 minutes from Faro Airport, the access is most convenient.

Lovely clean accommodation. Beautiful outside space and pool. Looked better in real life than in photographs.
Awesome views and such peace and tranquillity.
Martin even helped carry our luggage and shopping on arrival (and supplied crate of fresh oranges the next morning)!!!!!
Children helped feed the fish and youngest loved the cats and kittens.
Only recommendation would be for a washing machine to be fitted rather than share as we travel light and need to turn supplies around!
Many thanks and hope to visit again.x
We stayed at the villa Peixe Rei for number of days together with two close Portuguese friends. We cannot speak highly enough of the villa.
It is very spacious, comfortable, extremely clean, and had everything we could possibly have needed including an excellent BBQ area and a nicely located hammock where one could take a lazy summer nap.
The views of the surrounding village of Quelfes and of the orange orchards from the balcony and from the pool area make the villa very exceptional and an excellent choice.
The villa is very close to Olhao (the market there is an excellent place for fresh fish, meat, and vegetables) and to Spain – Ayamonte, which is a town and municipality located in the province of Huelva. There we had the best Paella so far!
It was indeed a stay that we will not forget and certainly we will return back on our first opportunity. Our two daughters really loved the place and the pool. The cats and the friendly dogs provided that extra excitement which made the stay a relaxing holiday and a memorable one.
The hospitality provided by the hosts Martin and Serilia, Maria and Luis certainly exceeded our expectations. They were very generous in providing us with a constant supply of freshly picked figs, tangerines, and oranges from their oranges groves situated next to the villa.
We really enjoyed our stay and would strongly recommend the villa.
