Quinta de São Faustino - Summary

Originally a farm, Quinta de São Faustino is 322 metres above sea level and has extensive views across the countryside to the Atlantic Ocean beyond. There are some inexpensive, traditional restaurants dotted in the surrounding hills and Boliqueime, with a wider variety a short drive away. The original farmhouse has been restored making up half of the accommodation in this substantial property and a newer building has been added to compliment the original with furniture and building materials which are in keeping with the style of the farmhouse.

The villa is a rabbit warren with some interconnecting rooms and countless original features both in the grounds and internally. There are some dry-stone walls, a fabulous wood burning stove (logs can be purchased at the local supermarket), lovely pieces of furniture - both functional and ornamental, low ceilings in the old part of the house and attractive china. The small kitchen has been brought up to date with modern appliances but is deliberately still very much a farmhouse kitchen and is in no way "high tech!"

The garden is lovely; at the front of a house there are double entry gates and a drive with a path leading to a bridge over a frog pond with a tucked away seating area. The swimming pool is at the back of the property and takes advantage of the amazing views. It is surrounded by terraces with a lawn to one side. There are several outside dining areas, including a shaded terrace, by the barbeque. There is a ramp from the terrace to the pool and one of the ground floor bathrooms has hand rails, so this villa may be suitable for wheelchair users.  Please enquire at time of booking.

Boliqueime, Algarve

In the hills behind Faro there are some wonderful towns and villages which remain relatively unaffected by tourism. Loulé is a typical, bustling market town with lots of history and remnants of its Roman and Moorish past, including the old castle walls and mosque-like churches. As the coast has developed, gradually more villas have been built on the almond tree filled hills surrounding Loulé but this has not changed the character of the town; if you wander down the cobbled side streets, you will find workshops with craftsmen busily working on leatherware, weavers making baskets and metal workers beating out copperware.

São Brás is a sleepy town 12kms from Loulé with a central square, an interesting museum, several restaurants and few tourists. Close by is the village of Estoi which has Roman ruins, an 18th Century palace and an excellent market held on the second Sunday of each month. Santa Bárbara de Nexe has several very good res...
