Come and join Kate, Stimpy, Flynn and Jess the dog for a great escape in the stunning West Algarve! We are located only 10 minutes walk from the picturesque surfing beach, Praia de Arrifana beach.

The space

Set in the beautiful Costa Vicentina National Park our two storey modern villa offers a comfortable, friendly atmosphere where you can relax the minute you walk through the door – from cozy corners in the spacious living area to the hanging hammocks on the balcony.

Guest access

Every morning we lay out a buffet-style continental breakfast with fresh eggs, ham, cheeses, yoghurts, fruit and a selection of cereals and breads. You can enjoy your breakfast in the sunshine on the decking outside.

Interaction with guests

Myself or Stimpy are always at hand to make sure you feel at home. We offer advice about the surrounding area and any activity you may want to do, such as surfing, horse riding, or rock climbing.

Staying at Arrifana Retreat was perfect! I wish I had stayed longer. I was only booked in for one night and would definitely go back. The house was very comfortable, they really make you feel at home. The room was good, clean and comfortable. There is a living room with fire place you can go sit and read or hang out with others staying in the house. They have a huge kitchen which you can use at anytime and they have some basics there for you if you get hungry. I would highly recommend this place to anyone!

I had a wonderful stay at Arrifana Retreat. Kate and Stimpy were great hosts and really made me feel at home. The house is very clean and comfortable, and they lay out a great breakfast in the morning. I would happily stay here again. Kate went above and beyond as a host and I am very grateful to have met her!

It was a truly great stay with Stimpy, Kate and family. Six days at their bright, clean and spacious home, five minutes from Arrifana Beach. Fine choice of breakfast foods, fresh linen and comfy bed, and a hot water bath and cheery fire to warm up and relax after a day in the late November surf. Highly recommended and definitely a 'be-back' destination on the southwest coast of Portugal. Thank you!

Staying with Kate and Stimpy was an absolute joy. The two were affable, amusing and determined to help in any way they could. I felt most welcome at their little retreat and would absolutely recommend them to any and all travellers in the region. The endless supply of breakfast eggs was marvellous, BTW. Thanks! :)

I have a wonderful and relaxing stay at Arrifana retreat. Kate and Stimpy are great hosts, very friendly, easygoing and helpful. I felt really like home. The house is very spacious, as for the garden and balcony. The room was comfortable and clean. Also great breakfast with a lot of choices. Ideal before starting a surf day ;)

We moved to the beautiful West Algarve in March 2014. After living here previously we decided to buy a place we could share with other travelers. Myself and Stimpy will make you feel more than welcome at Arrifana Retreat.
