About the Owner

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.

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

What a fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

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.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests


Olhao has some of the most secluded beaches in all of the Algarve, but a ferry ride is necessary, as there is an inland sea that prevents car traffic from accessing those Islands. The nearest beaches to drive to are Fuzeta (15 minutes) and faro (30 minutes).


Faro Airport FAO is 15 minutes away. Olhao has a train station and bus terminal.


Quelfes: 1 Km; Moncarapacho: 4 Km; Olhao: 4 Km; Faro: 20 Km

Further Details:

Olhao has one of the most active fishing ports in the Algarve. The Markets by the water front were the places where all the food was sold before supermarkets came on the scene. Both the fish and vegetable Markets are still very active. every morning you can buy the fish caught that very night. And every Saturday there is a farmer's market with local produce directly from the producers.

With hundreds of restaurants, many directly by the water front, it is famous throughout the Algarve for the freshness of its fish. In August the Festival do Marisco (Sea Food Festival) is an attraction that combines the best culinary delights with the best of big name entertainment.

Ria Formosa is a natural park reserve, where you can visit the well preserved flour mills powered by the force of the tides.

Every Sunday there is a local market in one of the surrounding villages, and an antique market happening somewhere.

From the Owner

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.
