Such a wonderful, relaxing place to stay with one of the most informative and attentive hosts you could ask for! The property is a fantastic and clean, away from the noise and bustle of the towns with everything you need provided (towels, tea, coffee, fridge, oven, shower gel etc.) and access to a private 12m pool. Highly recommend starting every morning with a few laps! Maria and her family were extremely welcoming and two of her sons and Lizette are on offer with their massage expertise as well. Highly recommended!!

Maria and her husband Nuno have been amazing. I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and will recommend it to all I know coming to the Algarve. Their food is delicious, wine incredible, the property so quiet and peaceful. The pool is wonderful and the horses were a total bonus. The cottage was spotlessly clean and they had to wait in Faro for over ten hours for my delayed flight. I thoroughly appreciate all Maria and Nuno have done for me and I'm sure they will be life long friends. Kisses Maxi

Maria's place is in the countryside, in between Silves and Algoz. Around Maria's neighborhood, you will see lots of oranges, tangerines, and lemon trees from near by farmers. It's great for walking and running in neighborhood and not having worrying about traffic. It's a very tranquil area. I do suggest having a car so that you may explore as much as Algarve has to offer. Although if you are on a budget Maria has bikes so you can use to go to nearby towns. Algoz, for example, has a quaint Mercado (market) with produce from very nice local farmers. We found that Silves has a great cute and delicious coffee shop called Cafe DaRosa. The accommodation itself can only be described as your vacation home in the beautiful diverse Mediterranean. When you enter Maria's property, you will see 3 cottages side to side, almost like guest houses. Inside the home you are faced with a good sized kitchen, a table, and a sofa bed. As you move further in you will see the bathroom and the bedroom. Maria put a lot of thought into making this place really comfortable and beautifully decorated. In the bedroom: bed sheets were very warm (we were there in the winter), 4 pillows to lay on, floor mats on every corner, very large bedroom closet, lamps and nightstands on each side of the bed, and blackout curtains. In the bathroom: modern shower tub, hot water, and great large comfy towels. The kitchen had a nice 2 top gas stove, 1 large pot, a medium pot, a frying pan, tupperware, bowls, a small fridge, microwave, toasters, coffee maker, and all utensils you may need. Maria's hospitality was excellent, she invited us for a jog, and we even planned on making some dinner but unfortunately we didn't have the time. She gave us tips on where to visit and explore. Also, both her sons are masseuses, so when they are around you can get a great massage just next door. I spent almost a month there and felt incredibly comfortable. We only had some difficulty with the internet after 4:30 pm because that is when everyone in the region gets online so the speeds go down but this is the place to go and get away from the internet anyways.

Oh my God, what a description ! eh , eh. This is what our guests eyes ee, but not all of them. Thank you Johanna and John! When preparing the house I am just worried if people coming will be comfortable , save and fell happy . If you were happy that is the most important for me. I do not want disturb you because John was working on the Internet. you are lucky because you can travel and work at the same time . About the Internet I am sorry I bought 20 MBPS ( 4G) I am working from home and for me it works. Sometimes it is slow. Depending on what you are doing. I had people working from here before and no problem. As you know I have a portable internet people can use. Thank you and all the best for your futur. Keep cooking nice veg food Yohana.

Myself, my husband and our two children stayed at Maria's for a week in September. Our children are 1 and 3 so we wanted something a bit more baby friendly than a typical sun apartment/hotel

We had a great stay with Maria. Everyone is really friendly. We were given some yummy veggies from the garden. The pool is fantastic. The atmosphere is relaxing, quiet, fantastic views and we even saw a hoopoe bird. The villa is a great place to explore the area, really close to Silves and the beaches.
