You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the neighborhood, the comfy bed, and the evening sunsets. My place is good for couples and solo adventurers but still near enough to the local town of Sao Bras its a small annex which suits the outgoing type set in the countryside. Please note this is a small studio and not suitable for self catering, just light snacks, tea or coffee

The space

The studio is below the main house which ensures your privacy but still near enough to where I am on hand should you need anything. Your privacy and the surroundings are there to be enjoyed.

The salt water pool is for reasonable use and is not shared . As this is a bed and breakfast accommodation you have microwave and toaster, tea and coffee making facilities but no facilities to cook as this not permitted on the premises.

There are comfy sun loungers by the pool with outside table and chairs for you to enjoy.

The property has its own private off road parking which is gated and in a very safe Portguese neighbourhood. It is only a 15 min walk to the town of Sao Bras de Alportel with its very cheap restaurants and bustling Saturday market. Book early for the famous flower Easter festival.

Guest access

You have your own key to your own front door . There is a salt water private pool with gardens and loungers and garden furniture for you to enjoy there is own private parking space. To get to the villa follow the old road to Lisbon (N2) go through Sao Bras de Alportel head towards the the small town of Alportel before you reach that you will the signs for FARROBO

Interaction with guests

I believe privacy is utmost but you can call on us anytime we will always be willing to help you with advice of where to go locally I have also provided maps and details of local events and restaurants. We provide daily fresh rolls and croissants for breakfast from our local bakery. Your fridge will contain ham and cheese, milk, tea, coffee and orange juice, with bottled water, butter and jams also as part of our bed and breakfast.

Other things to note

I would advise a car to get around as is essential. This is a small comfortable studio.

It is a wonderful and very relaxing place to stay in Algarve. The house is very nice and cleaned. Helen and Barry are the most kind hosts I've ever met. They're special (and also is Lilly, of course! :) ). I strongly recommended this place.

Helen and Barry are very kind people and wanted you to feel at home, lovely people. There house is lovely and we enjoyed relaxing in there garden with pool. The coast and big city's are nearby and even Spain is nearby, we went off course to Spain and had a great time. The first city after the bridge is beautiful, must see that. We hope that you enjoy your stay, just like we did. Kind regards, Marcel and Mirjam

We had an amazing relaxing stay at Helen and Barry's house. Not only is it a peaceful place but we enjoyed the saltwater pool and the fresh bread and croissants in the morning a lot! You will be amazed by the hospitality of the two and of course of their happy dog Lilly <3 The little village is not too far from the next bigger town and easily reachable by car (be prepared for some narrow streets!) We can recommend to go for walks close by, pick some fresh figs and the trip to do ziplining in Alcoutim :) Thanks again for the escape from the mass tourism in the rest of Portugal!
