My sister, mother and me stayed for 5 nights, hired a car and toured the countryside. Wonderful house and garden - everything we could possible want was in the cupboards, a real home away from home. We had a very comfortable stay and spent the majority of the time on the terrace and around the pool - very refreshing first...

Thank you and I will think about a brighter indoor light! Caroline

About the neighbourhood
The town of Sao Bras de Alportel is quiet and peaceful and is around 20 km north of Faro. It was once an affluent town in the days when it was the busy cork producing capital of Portugal. Today life is more tranquil, but you can still see around you the trappings of wealth in some of the larger houses, with intricate stonework and decorated in tiles. If you’re looking for a simple existence along side the traditional white houses, narrow cobbled streets and the remaining local craftsmen, it may be a good choice for your Algarve holiday this year. It is more suited to those of you who want to get away from it all and disappear back in time, in a traditional Algarve village. If you like walking, eating good food and want a bit of history, then you’ll like the place. If you want more from you... more
